Internet of Things Ecosystem Migration

The long wait is almost over. The Helium Network is migrating to the Solana blockchain on March 27.

The proposed migration date for the telecom platform adheres to the Q1 2023 target that had been set by the Helium Foundation.

According to a Helium blog post, the move means the Helium community will no longer have to divide its focus between maintaining the Helium Layer-1 blockchain and expanding Helium’s decentralized wireless networks.

“With the ability to power thousands of transactions per second, combined with its massive ecosystem of developers, applications, and integrations, Solana has the speed and scale necessary to take on the blockchain responsibility while the Helium core-developers and community can focus on building wireless protocols and enabling utility on these networks,” according to the post.

What Is Helium Network:

According to CoinMarketCap, Helium (HNT) is a decentralized blockchain-powered network for the Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Launched in July 2019, the Helium mainnet allows low-powered wireless devices to communicate with each other and send data across its network of nodes. Nodes come in the form of so-called Hotspots, a combination of a wireless gateway and a blockchain mining device. Users who operate nodes thus mine and earn rewards in Helium’s native cryptocurrency token, HNT. Helium aims to prepare IoT communication for the future, identifying inadequacies in current infrastructure from its birth in 2013.
