With positive price action for both Helium (HNT, ~$0.20 to $2) and Melon Protocol (MLN, $5 to $50+), it is always worth reviewing both with a cautious eye. Our original note on Helium can be viewed here and our MIP proposal on Melon here.
Helium: The People’s Network
Helium is a project building a nationwide (now expanding globally) IoT network through the sale of nodes to retail users. These nodes have since covered the United States – being the first project to essentially blanket the U.S. in IoT coverage through a retail movement. Node count has 3x’d since our initial note to 6.5k+.
As a quick refresher, Helium is trying to build the world’s first peer-to-peer wireless network leveraging its own
