bHotspot: A decentralized WiFi Hotspot System [BHT]
bHotspot is a blockchain-driven (decentralized) WiFi hotspot system allowing users around the world to connect to nearby WiFi networks without involving a third party and at a much better cost than current WiFi hotspot or mobile data solutions.
What if you could get paid to share your Internet connection at your house or work place when you want to?
What if you could connect to WiFi anywhere in the world at a better price than your current mobile data roaming plan, and get a better connection?
What if you could connect automatically to nearby WiFi networks as you move around and keep control of how much you are paying?
Excerpt from the whitepaper:
A blockchain-driven (decentralized) WiFi hotspot system would allow users around the world to connect to nearby WiFi networks without involving a third party and at a much better cost than current WiFi hotspot or mobile data solutions. The blockchain technology provides most of the solution in a simple and elegant way. With the use of smart contracts at the connection level, we provide a solution that is trustless, rewards owners running the Service with a configurable usage fee and open the world to new possibilities with millions of WiFi routers out there connected to the Internet.
The Internet has become a standard in the everyday life of millions of people, the underlying infrastructure is based on millions of routers currently in place around the world, most of them already WiFi enabled. These routers are in service 24/7 and allow users to connect to the Internet in a wired or wireless manner.
Despite these routers being constantly available worldwide and providing Internet services, many users rely on expensive, unreliable mobile data to connect to the Internet because no or poorly implemented solutions are in place to use these routers instead.
What is needed is a way for users to use the connection these routers offer, in a seamless, low cost way, while compensating the Owners of the routers for offering it. Routers controlling the use of the service through transactions and smart contracts as part of a global blockchain allow the system to run in a trustless and secure environment where only minor external involvement is necessary.
