A new generation of Smart Contracts for the mobile computing platform.

Nodle is on the path to revolutionizing how a swarm of smartphones interacts with the blockchain. Today, the team behind the project is thrilled to announce the release of its Smart Missions Vision Paper. The comprehensive document details the company’s forward-thinking strategy and goals for the future, highlighting its commitment to innovation, disruption, and meeting the evolving needs of users.

Over the past few years, the Nodle team has achieved numerous significant milestones. In December 2018, the first Proof of Concept of the network was released on the Stellar Network, with native support on the HTC Exodus 1 and 1s, the blockchain phones from HTC. In June 2020, Nodle was among the first teams to launch a full-production blockchain built with Parity Substrate. And in May 2022, the project migrated from its solo chain to the 11th parachain slot on the Polkadot Network, leading the way of innovation before many others would take a similar path.

Throughout this time, the network has been continuously optimized and hardened against potential threats. The rewards formula and system have been improved to incentivize network growth and provide better economic guarantees to NODL token holders.

The Nodle App has been a critical component from day one, showcasing the network’s capabilities. The app has been one of few Stellar-compatible wallets since 2018, and when the Nodle chain launched in 2020, it also became the third mobile wallet to support Parity Substrate / Polkadot.

However, the work is just beginning. As the network expands, it becomes increasingly valuable to builders worldwide.

What is a Smart Mission?

Smart Missions are the “primitive” of the Nodle Network. Other applications, use cases, or features will be built as Smart Missions; this is possible because of the combination of various pieces of technology:

  • The Nodle SDK. Deployed within mobile applications across hundreds of thousands of devices, the Nodle Network can communicate with the physical world using smartphones running the SDK.
  • The Nodle Parachain and Parity Substrate. Acts as the nervous system that links the multiple components of the Nodle Network together and handles settlements (i.e., payments) for usage on the network.
  • The Nodle Virtual Machine (VM). A common and standardized system to represent and run scripts across various mobile platforms with good performance and maximum security.

Smart Missions allow anyone to program the network’s swarm of smartphones and devices to execute a custom piece of code or action for a given context. It makes the network programmable, meaning that developers and builders can easily create applications on top of the Nodle infrastructure in exchange for a fee in NODL tokens. With Smart Missions, new features and products will be built, such as asset tracking, data collection, security checks, geographic NFT airdrops, social networking, and referrals.

The Nodle team is already building additional capabilities and Smart Missions use cases showcasing the network’s potential. Third-party builders will create more services on top of the network for their ideas and products. As a result, the Nodle Network is well-positioned to become an essential tool for builders, developers, and entrepreneurs worldwide.

In conclusion, the Smart Missions vision paper is a roadmap for the future of Nodle, showcasing the company’s commitment to innovation. The team behind Nodle are outliers, forethinkers, and innovators, and they are excited to continue building a better, more connected world.

Nodle connects the physical world to Web3 by using smartphones as edge nodes. The edge nodes read devices and sensors in the physical world using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and connect that information to the blockchain. Creating a geolocation-based layer one that can be used by many unique applications built for the hyper-connected, mobile-oriented world we live in, including real-time asset tracking. Nodle creates an economic model that is secure, private, and scalable. Anyone with a smartphone can join the network in return for Nodle tokens ($NODL). Nodle provides insights for consumer electronics manufacturers, enterprises, smart cities, the finance industry and beyond. Since its creation in 2017, Nodle has become one of the world’s largest wireless networks by number of base stations. To join, download the Nodle app for iOS or Android.
