The Helium Network is a decentralized wireless Internet of Things (IoT) network using the LoRaWAN system, tied to the cryptocurrency Helium Network Token (symbol HNT).[1] Nodes on the network are generally owned and placed by individuals in their homes or offices, and they are rewarded for their participation in the network in payments of HNT.[2] The network aims to provide connectivity to IoT sensor devices in areas where wireless or mobile coverage is minimal, or requires too much power.[3][4]
