Developing decentralized wireless networks using a sustainable tokenomic model

The decentralized wireless network is considered to be one of the best examples of Web3 technology in the real world.. Airwaive as an Airbnb-inspired market platform, is designed to connect wireless operators and property owners (hosts) worldwide regardless of the type of network, centralized or decentralized. This makes Airwaive a great place for decentralized wireless network (DeWi) operators, such as Pollen, and their ecosystem projects to use Airwaive’s platform to locate ideal locations to host wireless access points. 

With Web3 and blockchain technology combining with real utility, a tokenomics model is essential for delivering sustainable value to retail investors and businesses. Airwaive’s tokenomics has been designed to make it easy for any operator to utilize, especially for those that don’t have their own tokens and are interested in building DeWi networks.  Wireless operators benefit from hosts that are willing to purchase equipment and participate in network creation, and hosts benefit from rewards.  The DeWi model, if built correctly, is a win-win for operators and hosts.  It’s also a win for users that get access to new or cheaper Internet services.  

The foundation of the Airwaive tokenomics is supported by users who find recurring value by accessing the Internet each month and are willing to pay for this access. The decentralized Internet cannot be built without partnerships. In Airwaive’s marketplace and tokenomics model, wireless operators and hosts (property owners) join forces to build a sustainable business model that generates passive income while developing the networks. Recurring token rewards are generated and backed by real business value. 

Airwaive has been growing its ecosystem with more than 50 operators and 6M potential host locations. With wireless networks, and in particular fixed wireless which consumes significant bandwidth, an ecosystem of partners that have wireless spectrum and backhaul capacity is critical to accomplish the goal of decentralizing networks. Airwaive’s platform and technology enabled our partner Compudopt to launch their first network in Dallas, providing broadband access to youth. And as an example of DeWi operators, Airwaive recently announced partnerships with operators to deploy a Pollen Network. Due to Airwaive’s tokenomics, the Airwaive token can coexist with operators who have their own native tokens when  or be used by operators that don’t have their own native tokens. 

To build a globally accessible and sustainable network, Airwaive welcomes all partners, stakeholders, and network owners to be part of our ecosystem for long-term value.
