What is STED

“STED” stands for Secure and Trusted Exchange of Data. Its mission is to:

1) create interconnectivity and operability so the things in the Internet of Things can talk to each other and

2) foster a free and efficient monetization of data and service with micropayment capability.

STED makes use of Blockchain technologies, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the communications technology SUPACT, which is compatible with most public blockchains.

Two-layer Network Architecture


Secure P2P communications via SUPACT

No IP addresses are exposed

Channels are created on-demand

Pluggable encryption supported between nodes

Two-layer network architecture to maximize scalability and maintain high TPS

Upper-layer network to maintain trustworthiness and consistency of IoT service listings and their transactions

Lower-layer shard networks in the form of enhanced DAGs that enables transaction processing of the highest efficiency

Consensus mechanisms optimized for IoT service transactions

Burgeoning DPoS algorithm used by upper-layer where blockchain nodes collaborate instead of competing with each other to create records

Revolutionary PoX algorithm used by lower-layer network to work with offchain service nodes to confirm that a service has indeed been delivered

Supports many forms of transaction to drive innovative IoT business models

Common IoT service transactions between providers and consumers: One-to-One, One-to-Many, Multisignature (M-to-N)

Credit-based transactions: Time-locked, Mortgage (Buy now, pay later; Pay now, deliver later)

Proxy transactions: Gas (Ethereum work unit) collection

Other transactions: Broadcast (for voting, statistics, bulletin board or reporting malicious nodes or activities)

Use Cases

IoT (Internet of Things)

Current IoT solutions are based on centralized cloud for communications, which inevitably storing data and leading to privacy and security issues. Most IoT chips and eSIM can now be embedded with SUPACT library (12kb) and then Things can interconnect and interoperate directly with each other. Therefore data ownership and data security are protected.

With micro-payment capability of SUPACT, users need not purchase Things but pay per use value of which may be at 3-18 decimal places.

IIoT (Industrial IoT)

SUPACT has been accredited by a renowned German conglomerate company as the MOST secured M2M communications technology over public networks. This conglomerate further adds about the benefits of SUPACT in IIoT including: Fast deployment and Low latency; Secure data storage; Simple to use; Compatible with all Internet standards and Charge per connection with its micropayment capability.

Smart City

Everyone can use SUPACT SDK to create an APP for device/sensor then provision the service on STED.io Smart City platform. With the secure, trust and micro-payment capabilities of SUPACT over most chains, every citizen is willing to provide own available resources as such services will be paid once used. Smart city will then become a shared economy. For example, any citizen who has power meter at home can sell power consumption data to electricity company. S/he can also sell any data such as temperature data or PM2.5 data to anyone or app developer who need it.


Fitness tracker with SUPACT inside now not only tracks your health data, but also can send data directly and securely to your personal trainer, doctor and others as you choose. Such data may then be exchanged with some reward say from insurance company, or your doctor and personal trainer will give you professional advice as they are assured that payment will be made once service is provided. All of these in shared economy are achievable through the secure, trust and micro-payment capabilities of SUPACT.

What makes STED special?

Blockchain and IoT are generating tremendous business value. IoT facing many challenges and Blockchain is not a cure-all solution. STED addresses two critical issues. First is the Interconnectivity and Interoperability so that smart devices can talk to each other. This significantly reduces the cost and increases the efficiency and scalability. When Things can talk to each other, STED provides a robust micropayment capability for the value flow of Things, resulting in an open marketplace. This is a huge market.

There is a great team behind the project, consisting of former executives of outfits like Google, Cisco and IBM, communications-technology patent holders, smart-city architects and service-delivery platform providers, IT and OT leaders, veteran developers, a GPS-mapping pioneer and a member of Mensa International, experienced legal and finance advisor, to name a few.

What is the core technology in STED and its key features?

The core technology used in STED are Blockchain technologies, including smart contract, consensus mechanism and network architecture, Artificial Intelligence, and SUPACT. All these contribute to STED in SPEEEED, i.e. Security and Privacy, Efficiency (MTPS), Economy (Low Cost), Ease, Everywhere and Digitalisation of assets.

What is the innovation in STED?

Innovation is always at the heart of STED. In this project, we apply SUPACT for security and scalability. Communication between nodes is difficult to track and crack. SUPACT can support 10 billions and 1 billion communication requirement concurrently. Second, we use a two-layer network architecture to improve efficiency. Third, consensus mechanism for mortgaged and credit transactions. Fourth is the various forms of transaction supported, lastly support security plug in which provides flexibility for different application scenarios.
