Infineon and Tribe join hands to strengthen Singapore’s Blockchain Ecosystem

SINGAPORE, Nov. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Infineon partners with Tribe, the first Singapore Government supported blockchain ecosystem builder, which brings together government agencies, corporates and blockchain companies to foster innovation and collaboration. Infineon will provide its longstanding industry expertise in hardware security solutions and can help companies seeking to apply blockchain to discover the competitive advantages of Infineon’s SECORA™ Blockchain security solutions. Selected start-ups developing applications using SECORA™ Blockchain will have the opportunity to collaborate with Infineon in time-to-market and customer development as partners at the Infineon Co-Innovation Space.

As a hardware-based solution SECORA Blockchain has a decisive advantage over other blockchain access options: It withstands both hardware- and software-based attacks and can only be attacked and manipulated with a very high, financially unprofitable effort.
