Under the trend of digital technology in the global Internet of Things, Helium occupies a special strategic position in the market, and is the most potential, most valuable and most objective future intelligent transmission giant in the development field of converged technology enterprises.
Distributed IoT integration
Helium’s digital technology is the economic layer that empowers decentralized wireless signal networks. Helium meets the needs of IoT device transmission and was born to meet the needs of low-power WANs, which have a strong demand for low-power WANs. Helium has grown from the original 150 hotspots to more than 200,000, mainly in countries such as the United States and Europe. At present, dozens of companies in the United States have reached partnerships with Helium, and there are actual application scenarios and landing needs.
Helium has begun to explode around the globe as an open source decentralized ecosystem that works together to build an unprecedented future. Helium has listed more than 15 exchanges around the world, and there is currently room for significant increase in corporate value.
The outlook for HNT
As the most potential unicorn in the field of blockchain + Internet of Things, relying on the huge value behind it, it has stable and considerable future returns, and the world’s top investment institutions have also given forward-looking praise.
In 2019, Multicoin Capital and Union Square Ventures jointly led Helium’s Series C. Tushar Jain, an investor at Multicoin, helped Helium build a beautiful model of the token economy, and he contributed to helium’s dual token and consensus mechanisms as we see it now.
In August 2021, top institutions in the crypto world, such as Alameda Research, a16z, 10T, and FTX’s quantitative crypto exchange, also joined Helium’s $110 million ICO.
The future of Helium through the eyes of investors
Let’s take a look at how the investors define and look forward to the future of Helium from different perspectives!
Tushar, Multicoin’s talented investor in economics
“Since the advent of Ethereum smart contracts, we have never seen a more ambitious vision in the blockchain space than Helium: Helium represents a whole new way to deploy and manage wireless networks at scale, upending the cost structure of traditional communications.”
[USV’s Nick Grossman (who voted for Coinbase and Dune Analytics)]
“Imagine a world where devices can automatically connect to open networks without having to sign a contract with a cell phone operator or set up a credit card account, just like the experience of using a radio: you buy the device home, turn it on, and you can use it.” Wireless Internet can’t do that right now, but in time Helium can achieve such a networked world. ”
[Alameda Research founder famous Sam Bankman-Fried fascinated by the intersection of the crypto world and the “real world”]
“It’s never been seen that the incentives of the crypto world can be used to deploy real-world infrastructure.”
[a16z puts Helium in a unique position in their thesis]
“The core investment logic of a16z has always been: blockchain is a new class of computers. The three basic components of a computer are computing (CPU), storage (hard disk), and networking (network interface card). Separately, existing smart contract platforms such as Ethereum are optimized for computing. Blockchains optimized for storing data, such as Filecoin and Arweave, are ideal for use cases such as NFT metadata and will continue to improve their scale and content delivery. Before Helium, we had never seen a blockchain optimized for the network. ”
In summary, the main feature of Helium is that it comes from a new blockchain model, using a workload algorithm that is different from other projects, covering proofs, to run a network with unique practicality.
Helium is a promising project to build a global wireless network ecosystem through the setting of hotspots and blockchain technology, thereby reducing the cost of expenses and energy consumption.
