Helium is a Network of Connected Devices which rewards Nodes for providing a network for the machines to connect to each other.
Helium was founded in 2013 by Shawn Fanning, Amir Haleem, and Sean Carey, with a mission to make it easier to build connected devices.
Amir Haleem is the CEO and Helium's COO is Frank Mong.
Helium gateways only consume 15W and reward hosts based on the number of devices that connect to the node. The network connects low-power machines to the internet in a new, secure, and affordable way. Thousands of machines can connect to a single gateway and send encrypted data through to the internet over miles of range while owners earn tokens every time machines connect to their gateways.
