What is Helium (HNT)?
A blockchain-based network called Helium links IoT devices. While the system distributes data over the network nodes, communication between the devices is made possible via helium technology. In the Helium system, the network's nodes are referred to as Hotspots. The Hotspots use LoRaWAN to provide public network coverage. Platforms like Helium can connect to the cloud component of LoRaWAN, a media access control layer protocol.
With more than 25,000 Hotspots serving as network nodes, Helium is one of the largest LoRaWAN networks. Hotspots combine the LoRaWAN network's strength with a blockchain-based mining apparatus.
Helium, also known as "The People's Network," intends to address all the problems and insufficient answers while setting up an effective and functioning IoT for the future. The privacy of well-known Internet of Things hubs, like Google or Amazon, is one of the industry's main issues. When it comes to connecting devices to the Internet of Things, privacy soon won't be an issue thanks to decentralization and the blockchain technology Helium was built on.
