Press about us

Cere Technology

Cere is organized through a hub-and-spoke architecture where both public and private
chains are connected to the Cere Layer-1 as the central nexus of the network.

The Cere

The core of the ecosystem is the Cere Layer-1 blockchain optimized for enterprise usage. It establishes a foundation of interoperable identity and data privacy solutions and facilitates the secure validation of data and asset transfer in the entire ecosystem.

While the Cere Layer-1 is optimized for enterprise adoption (increased throughput, guaranteed SLA’s, etc.), it’s also inclusive (open to everyone) and fully decentralized in architecture and governance.

While Cere's Layer-1 is acutely focused on bridging the vast gap between enterprise needs of privacy, scale, ease of use, and real-life use cases with current blockchain technology, it's also fully compatible with Polkadot to meet interoperability standards.

Scaling via

Polkadot Compatibility (Substrate)

Achieving cross-chain asset transfers with all public networks by using Substrate runtime components and cross-chain smart contracts.

Horizontal Scalability

Heterogeneous sharding within Cere Layer-1 blockchain and beyond (Polkadot, Cosmos, Binance, Ethereum, etc).

Polkadot Parachain

Cere’s future parachain leverages on additional security and integrations provided by Polkadot’s relay chain and ecosystem.

Cere for Enterprises

Cere's Layer-1 cross-chain compatibility with networks like Binance
Smart Chain, Polkadot, Cosmos, Ethereum, and others bring Cere in a unique position
to bridge the biggest enterprise companies with the fastest-growing decentralized ecosystems.

Use Cases

Currently being built by the Cere team
for it's Fortune-1000 clients


Credit cards rely on perks and rebates, offered by the banks and their partners to drive usage (e.g. learning 1 mile for each $1 spent).

Cere brings a new level of data interoperability and secure asset/value exchange to better automate such integrations between banks and partners.


Cere provides a drop-in solution that boosts a brand’s hyper-personalization strategy.

With intelligent loyalty and payment solutions, brands can increase their online to in-store conversions.


Cere delivers personalized product offerings across 1st to 3rd partners to enrich existing user experiences.

The secure sharing of personalization data combined with smart offers and discounts distributed as derivative assets to each user’s own wallet is the key to powering the full automation of this process.


Cere helps media enterprises to improve long term user retention and content engagement by using a plug-and-play gamification module that can enrich the user experience of any app/site.

The Cere SDK works in conjunction with each user’s own wallet/ledger to allow the full automation of these normally hard to integrate use cases.
