In addition to supporting the Helium community worldwide, we are responsible for fostering research, development, and innovation at the intersection of radio hardware, sensors and manufacturing, blockchain, and peer-to-peer systems.
We are committed to building a future in which anything that can or should be connected is, and where there are no second-class devices.
By connecting people and devices to the internet, and reducing the need for middlemen, we hope to build a smarter, more magical world.
