Helium: The People’s Network
Helium is a wireless network that aims to provide a secure and low-cost way for the Internet of Things (IoT) devices to interact with the Internet.
The Helium Hotspot allows up to 200 times the connectivity compared to traditional Wifi. It employs the use of Helium LongFi, which is a product of LoRaWAN (the Long Range Wide Area Network) wireless protocol and the Helium blockchain. The people who use Helium act as validators. They do this by utilizing the Hotspot device to improve the network’s coverage. The users can earn HNT tokens by transferring data within the network.
Once the hotspots are connected to the internet and become part of the network, they can communicate with each other. This results in the broadcast of long-range radio waves. It creates a wide area network with which other IoT devices can then plug into and interact with. It is estimated that only 50-100 hotspots are needed to cover an entire city. The hotspots by Helium are constantly being checked by the PoC challenge. Only the hotspots who perform well in this challenge are elected.
Helium LongFi allows any device to receive or send a message within the network’s coverage area and have their message relayed by a webserver without any cost. LongFi enables many devices to launch simultaneously. This is without the involvement of any third party and with no additional configurations. The launched devices are tracked with IDs that are stored on the Helium blockchain and are able to circulate data in the network through any Hotspot. The device owners are rewarded with HNT tokens, through data transfer.
Helium has an impressive number of more than 440,000 Hotspots. The Helium network is expanding quickly, along with the growth in the number of Hotspots.
