Helium is a decentralized network that allows anyone to build wireless coverage for the Internet of Things (IoT). It’s called the People’s Network because it is owned and operated by its users, rather than a centralized organization. This allows for greater flexibility, security, and scalability for IoT applications.
The Helium network is built on a blockchain, which allows for secure and transparent transactions between users. This is important for things like buying and selling wireless coverage, or for securely transmitting IoT data.
To get involved with the Helium network, you can become a coverage provider by setting up a Helium hotspot. This is a device that provides wireless coverage to the network, and in return, earns rewards in the form of the Helium token (HNT). You can also become a developer and build applications on top of the network, or simply use the network as a consumer of IoT services.
The Helium network is still in its early stages, but it has the potential to revolutionize the way we think about wireless coverage and IoT. Join the community and be a part of building the People’s Network.
