SmartMesh's goal is to be the underlying protocol for the IoT. Devices communicate and make transactions, within the network, without an internet connection.

SmartMesh is developing a blockchain-based protocol for the Internet of Things. SmartMesh has built-in blockchain light nodes, and extends the Raiden and Lightning Networks' second layer architecture network protocols. SmartMesh's blockchain-based network allows devices to communicate and make transactions without an internet connection. Users establish P2P connections when they are online, and are then able to transact with each other offline. Spectrum and Ozone, which are part of the SmarMesh network, are designed for developing decentralized applications.
The SMT token is used to reward the nodes that contribute computing resources to SmartMesh's network, and are also the medium of exchange for P2P transactions.
