Hyperion Decentralized Infrastructures

The Node Masters

The Mission

Hyperion Decentralized Infrastructures (HDI) was founded in 2019 from the initiative of a heterogeneous group of investors, blockchain developers and enthusiasts based in Switzerland. We believe that the blockchain technology will change the way we work and do business together.
We think the ecosystem has still a long way to go in order to reach the maturity needed to take the role it deserves. We would like to be part of the change and responsibly help shaping the industry.

The Way

With this in mind, we decided to pioneer in our region the possibility to be partially founded through a capital provision in cryptocurrencies (first in Ticino and one of the first in Switzerland) thus smothering the road for more to follow.
HDI aims to set itself as a reputable and trusted partner for Blockchain solutions. In order to do so we establish long term, trusted relationship with our partners. We stake and support reputable, long term projects that pursue a legit and sound use of the blockchain.

Centrifuge is an open, decentralized platform to connect the global financial supply chain. It allows any business to transact while maintaining ownership of their data, including their validated company details, their reputation, business relationships, and subsequent transactions.

HDI supports Centrifuge since the first testnet phase (FLINT) with a fruitful collaboration.




The NuCypher network provides accessible, intuitive, and extensible runtimes and interfaces for secrets management and dynamic access control.

Access permissions are baked into the underlying encryption, and access can only be explicitly granted by the data owner via sharing policies. Consequently, the data owner has ultimate control over access to their data. At no point is the data decrypted nor can the underlying private keys be determined by the NuCypher network.
