Building a Decentralized Wireless Network
Decentralized wireless (DeWi) networks are networks that are distributed across multiple locations and are not controlled by a centralized authority. A DeWi network can be a mobile or fixed wireless network. They often run on unlicensed spectrum.
Quoting Messari, “Decentralized Wireless (DeWi) aims to revolutionize the way communication networks are built, operated, and owned by incentivizing operators to deploy and maintain telecom hardware in exchange for token rewards.” To understand the history of DeWi and some of the protocols such as Helium, Pollen, XNet and World Mobile, view the Messari report. To participate in the construction of decentralized wireless networks, continue reading below.
