What Is Helium?

All About the Helium Network
Helium is a decentralized network that supplies network coverage to smart devices connected to the Internet of Things. Think devices requiring only small amounts of data - weather sensors, vehicle tracking, air quality meters and the like.

Anyone can build and deploy devices on the helium network and pay only for the data transmitted. Likewise, anyone can contribute to building the network by hosting a hotspot to pick up these small packets of data as they are being transmitted - in return you are incentivized by receiving a payment for providing coverage.

These transactions are recorded in the Helium blockchain and utilize Helium's native token, HNT.

Helium was launched on the 29th of July, 2019 and has grown to become the largest LoRaWAN network in the world. What's LoRaWAN you ask? Find out more here.

Helium has a large community of developers and enthusiasts - learn more about Helium at helium.com
