A comparison between the Helium and Match X crypto networks.
What is the Helium Network? The Helium Network is a blockchain-based communication network. HNT is the crypto-currency built to facilitate this network and it’s construction which will help to connect the billions of IOT devices that are being deployed around the world. These devices need access to a long-range, low power, and inexpensive network to communicate with their users. How Is Helium Different Than Other Wireless Networks? Communications Networks are nothing new, in fact, they have been around for over 100 years — from the old Telegram networks built to transmit Morse Code over copper wire to the ultra-fast 5G networks Big Telco’s are deploying today. Despite the huge increases in speed and bandwidth, modern networks are all centralized using the “top-down” approach to the infrastructure that serves their content. The networks use highly controlled, centralized radio equipment that they themselves own. The maintenance of the network and what types…
I want to share with you some tips on antenna placement that may help you out when building your system. So if you want to learn more stay tuned, I plan on making a write-up on that next.
Bad actors possibly numbering in the hundreds have falsely asserted their locations so that they can steal money from legitimate miners and users. It’s a relatively simple hack that anyone can do and unfortunately may become a serious problem as the network grows
Hi, I’m a blogger and Engineer who has recently started dabbling in the Helium Network. I plan on documenting my experiences, successes (and failures), and insights on this technology. Please join me!!
