Oort Welcomes Helium Hotspots on its Decentralized Edge Network

Oort DEN, Powered by Deimos and now Helium Hotspots

Oort is proud to announce that all Helium hotspots can now join and increase the network bandwidth of Oort DEN. This collaboration with and Helium manufacturers will facilitate faster data services for Oort users while boosting income for HNT miners.

Founded by Professor Pramod Viswanath from Princeton University and Professor Himanshu Tyagi from the Indian Institute of Science, Witness Chain is a proof system for decentralized networks such as Helium, Pollen, and XNET. Now integrated with Oort DEN, Witness Chain’s proof of bandwidth algorithm will verify and ensure the quality and security of the Helium hotspots’ performance. Their decentralized speed tests provide trust-free verification of connection speed for hotspots.
