balena monthly roundup - May 2022

Here at balena, we have noticed fleets of Helium miners and LoRaWAN gateways growing enormously over the last year. Helium is a crowdsourced LoRaWAN network running on blockchain where people personally host Helium hotspots to provide network coverage. If you don’t have yours yet, check out our blog post where we show you how to deploy a fleet of Helium data-only hotspots on Raspberry Pi and Seeed LoRa concentrators.
