People-Powered Networks.

Start a Wireless Revolution

Powered by the Helium Blockchain, The People’s Network represents a paradigm shift for decentralized wireless infrastructure.


The Helium Blockchain creates a unique incentive model, rewarding anyone who builds wireless network coverage in a new cryptocurrency, HNT.

Hundreds of compatible Hotspots can be used to build a wireless network and provide connectivity for billions of Internet of Things (IoT) devices around the world.

How do I get started?Why should I build The People’s Network?


From smart pet collars to bike trackers, air quality and environmental sensors, hundreds of companies and thousands of developers are already deploying IoT applications that use The People’s Network.

Now millions of new and existing solutions, sensors, and devices can connect to the Internet without Wi-Fi or cellular using 'LongFi' - a powerful combination of the LoRaWAN wireless protocol and the Helium Blockchain.

Trusted by:


Anyone can earn HNT by simply building The People’s Network and participating in Proof-of-Coverage, a novel proof-of-work model. HNT is also earned for transferring IoT device data.

In order to use the network and transfer data, IoT devices must use Data Credits. Fixed in value, Data Credits are created by burning HNT, reducing the total supply of 5 million HNT mined each month, to achieve a Burn and Mint Equilibrium.

Core Technologies

The People's Network is made possible through sophisticated, open-source technologies that aim to create a truly decentralized and trust-less model for building wireless infrastructure.

Tokens & Data Credits

The network uses two units of exchange: HNT, a new cryptocurrency, and Data Credits.


Our novel proof-of-work algorithm enables Hotspots to be rewarded trustlessly.

Helium LongFi

LongFi combines the low-power, long-range LoRaWAN wireless protocol with the Helium Blockchain.

Our Investors

Helium has raised equity funding from some of the most prominent Venture Capital (VC) firms in the world including Khosla Ventures, FirstMark Capital, GV (formerly Google Ventures), HSB/MunichRe Ventures, Union Square Ventures, Multicoin Capital, and others.
