A massive leap forward in XYO technology!

At XYO, we operate at the intersection of Internet of Things (IoT) and Location, which we combine to call “Location of Things” (LoT). But how we combine this with blockchain is where it gets really interesting.

But first, a brief story of how it all went down

There had been rumblings about “LayerOne” for some time amongst the most connected blockchain developers in the space. They were a group of blockchain developers that first came onto the scene during the ETHDenver Hackathon earlier this year. We had heard that this was a company led by some of the most die-hard and innovative blockchain developers out there. And word on the street was, they were building an innovative geospatial blockchain technology… and it actually worked!

We’ve Acquired LayerOne — The Most Advanced Technology and Team Innovating Around Blockchain Absolute Location Data.

This is the company responsible for some of the most mind-blowing, cutting-edge absolute location data on the blockchain. With absolute location data in our toolbox, we can now provide multi-layered, complex, 3D-level data to the LoT market and decentralized blockchain apps (dApps).

What is LayerOne’s Secret Sauce?

LayerOne brings a ton development goodies to the table, but everything stems from LayerOne’s own creation: The Quadhash.

Who is LayerOne?

The LayerOne Team (now XYO Sacramento) is made up of four insanely talented blockchain engineers. If you don’t already know, today blockchain engineers are the most sought-after types of developers out there. To be a blockchain engineer, you have to understand cryptography, dApps, Ethereum, blockchain AND on top of that, just be a great engineer.

Where will the new XYO Sacramento work?

When we purchased LayerOne, we demanded that this new arm of XYO exist in the coolest place in Northern California. And they came through!
