Helium co-founder and CEO Amir Haleem joins us once more to talk about the decisions that went into the hardware, software and design of the iconic Helium Hotspot. We cover security, hardware specs, resource consumption, and also take a look into a future where there are 3rd party hotspot manufacturers and DIY hotspots mining on the network.We also dive into Proof of Coverage, which is the method of verifying that real coverage is being provided by hotspots on the network, and has also been the rocket fuel behind the Helium Network's growth.You'll hear some crazy ideas about old Proof of Coverage schemes, including sampling public radio, and where its design might go next, including coverage maps and witness sampling.Fair warning, this is an in-depth technical discussion.Learn more about Helium: https://www.helium.com/Follow me: @rawrmaanFollow Amir: @amirhaleemFollow Helium: @heliumIntro song: Lakey Inspired - Arcade
Helium co-founder and CEO Amir Haleem guides us through Helium's journey to build a wireless network for low-power sensors.It's a fascinating story filled with twists and turns, failure and success, and one overarching mission to fill an aching demand in the tech world that, for some reason, nobody has been able to fill until now.We cover lots of ground here, including the beginnings of the company, fundraising, technology choices, the cryptoeconomic model and visions for the future.A fair warning, our discussion gets fairly technical at times, but even if you're not technically inclined, I urge you to stick around, especially if you're interested in the grand idea of building a network that's powered and owned by people, not big telcos.Learn more about Helium: https://www.helium.com/Follow me: @rawrmaanFollow Amir: @amirhaleemFollow Helium: @heliumIntro song: Lakey Inspired - Arcade
