HNT Miners providing hyper-accurate weather data rewarded with WeatherXM Tokens
Are you sick of checking your phone to see if it’s actually going to rain today? We can help you with WeatherXM.
As the newest player in the ecosystem, WeatherXM is utilizing Helium to gather high-quality, hyperlocal meteorological data and make it widely available in an effort to have a significant influence on sectors like agriculture that rely significantly on precise weather predictions.
Based inGreece, WeatherXM is deploying small weather stations in previously inaccessible areas and gathering valuable weather information. The company has already shipped their first batch of 1,000 WiFi weather stations to customers around the world, and they are currently manufacturing more to meet demand as well as expanding their range with a new version that will connect directly to Helium and be even easier for users to deploy.
The company selected Helium for a number of reasons, including the shared passion for building decentralized networks and community-owned infrastructure. Additionally, WeatherXM’s founders praised Helium’s low cost of data transmission and rapidly-growing worldwide coverage that allows weather stations to be deployed in areas where cellular coverage is poor or non-existent.
WeatherXM has also developed an incentive model to allow their users to earn for providing accurate weather data. Inspired by the Helium model, WeatherXM is working towards building the largest people-powered weather network.
We sat down for a brief interview with WeatherXM CEO Manolis Nikiforakis to learn more about the company, their history, and their partnership with Helium.
