TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA, USA, May 29, 2024 / -- ARAX & Romanian Municipality of Tuzla devise a DePIN Smart City Plan using intelligent street lights

ARAX Holdings Corp. is pleased to announce a groundbreaking private-public partnership (PPP) with the Tuzla Municipality in Romania to implement a smart city solutions platform. By utilizing the Decentralized Physical Infrastructure Network (DePIN) platform economy and ARAX's cutting-edge blockchain, IoT, and AI technologies, this initiative aims to transition Tuzla into a model smart city.

Smart City Solution Proposal for Tuzla, Romania

Tuzla, a charming commune in Constanța County, on the Black Sea shore, Romania with a population of just over 7,000 people, is set to become a bustling hub for commerce and tourism. However, like many cities around the world, Tuzla faces challenges in optimizing its resources to expand infrastructure within its borders, creating demand, and increasing revenue for the municipality. At the same time, it aims to save operational costs by implementing optimal solutions such as, intelligent street light management, decentralized connectivity, utility meter asset management, waste management, renewable energy consumption, decentralized data storage for reporting, and the management of supplying and distributing commodities

To address these challenges and transform Tuzla into a smart city prioritizing sustainability and efficiency, ARAX Holdings Corp. proposes implementing technological solutions. These solutions will not only improve the quality of life for residents but also attract more visitors to the city.

In a conversation with Tuzla's Mayor, Reșit Taner, we discussed implementing the ARAX Smart City DePIN and blockchain-based RWA and RWP management platform, integrated with the CorePass decentralized digital identity system for secure data storage, scalability, and accountability. Mayor Taner shared his insights on the matter.
"This ecosystem and infrastructure introduce intelligent street lighting and urban development that create jobs, leverage connectivity and income opportunities for our community and boost tourism."

Following discussions with the municipality of Tuzla, the mayor has approved the project to proceed with phases 1, 2, and 3. This ambitious project, leveraging smart street lighting and Lunaº Mesh for sustainable urban development, represents a significant step in the transformation of Tuzla into a model smart city.

Project Overview and Objectives


To establish a model for smart urban development in Tuzla, Romania, by implementing a pilot project centered around intelligent streetlights, using ARAX’s state-of-the-art technologies in blockchain, IoT, and AI. This project will demonstrate the potential for broader smart city integrations and set a scalable framework for future deployments.


This initiative will commence with the deployment of smart streetlights powered by renewable energy, connected through the Internet of Things (IoT), and secured using blockchain technology. The project aims not only to provide the required street lighting and enhance urban efficiency by providing secure connectivity and communication, reduced energy consumption, and improved city services, laying the groundwork for future smart city applications.

Future of DePIN Solutions and the Platform Economy

DePIN and the Platform Economy:

Decentralized Physical Infrastructure Networks (DePIN) represent the future of urban and economic development, enabling a shift from centralized to decentralized management of essential services. DePIN solutions are poised to revolutionize how cities like Tuzla manage resources, optimize services, and engage with their communities. By decentralizing the infrastructure, Tuzla can achieve greater efficiency, reduce costs, and create new economic opportunities for itself and its community.

The Sharing Economy and Private-Public Partnerships:

The success of DePIN solutions hinges on fostering strong private-public partnerships. In Tuzla, this collaboration will bring together ARAX Holdings Corp., the municipality, and the public to share resources, knowledge, and responsibilities. This shared economy model incentivizes residents and businesses to contribute to the city's digital infrastructure, enhancing community engagement and ensuring the equitable distribution of economic benefits.

DePINs rely on tokens, like the Core Token, to power the network. The Core Token Utility solution acts as a reward for individuals and entities that contribute resources such as Lunaº Mesh, Wi-Fi hotspots, decentralized storage, and network data collection and management services. These utility tokens can also be used to pay for services within the Core Ecosystem, such as data access, cloud storage, and more, creating a self-sustaining ecosystem that drives continuous improvement and innovation.

Implementation Strategy

Technology Integration:

Establish a comprehensive Lunaº Mesh network to ensure seamless IoT connectivity across the urban landscape.
Utilize ARAX BaaP for secure, decentralized operations, leveraging Core Blockchain technology for real-time data analytics and smart contract functionalities.

Pilot Operation:
