Munich-based Silencio Network, a startup developing a network of decentralized sensors combating noise pollution, announced on Friday that it has secured $1M (approximately €928K) in a pre-seed round of funding led by Borderless Capital. 

Other investors, including Moonrock Capital, Master Ventures, and others, participated in the funding round. 

Silencio will use the capital to accelerate growth, enhance data integrity, foster partnerships, and further strategic initiatives. 

Thomas Messerer, CEO and co-founder of Silencio Network, says, “This investment goes beyond financial backing; it represents a shared belief in harnessing the power of blockchain for innovative data solutions. With Borderless Capital’s support, we are more equipped than ever to push the boundaries of data coverage in the decentralised era.” 

The funding comes as the German company aims to revolutionise data coverage, through the integration of peaq – a layer-1 blockchain designed for real-world applications – and DePINs.
