Intro to Helium, World's fastest growing wireless IoT network, powered by crypto

The Helium community combines people interested in electronics, cryptocurrency, telecoms, software and startups building new applications for the network; which should make for a diverse gathering.

Helium ( is one of the most exciting tech startup stories of the decade.

When Helium combined an Internet of Things (IoT) wireless router with their own $HNT cryptocurrency incentive model and blockchain, the result was explosive growth – now over 320K hotspots installed and growing at over 77K per month and a community of over 110K members.
Helium hotspots provide 1 to 20 km radius of standard LoRaWAN wireless coverage for small, cheap, long life, battery powered sensors to monitor temperature, location, sound, air quality etc.

Dubbed #ThePeoplesNetwork, Helium has a novel decentralised and open #Web3 business model that enables and/or incentivises participation through hosting, staking, improvement proposals, online committees, tokenised voting and decentralized manufacturing.

If thats not enough, the HNT token has grown 38X this year; Helium are enabling roaming for major competitors Senet and Actility; and adding cellular 5G and possibly Wifi protocols.
