OORT Welcomes Helium Hotspots on its Decentralized Edge Network

Disclaimer: This article may contain some outdated information.

OORT is proud to announce that all Helium hotspots can now join and increase the network bandwidth of OORT Edge. This collaboration with Witness Chain and Helium manufacturers will facilitate faster data services for OORT users while boosting income for HNT miners.

Founded by Professor Pramod Viswanath from Princeton University and Professor Himanshu Tyagi from the Indian Institute of Science, Witness Chain is a proof system for decentralized networks such as Helium, Pollen, and XNET. Now integrated with OORT Edge, Witness Chain’s proof of bandwidth algorithm will verify and ensure the quality and security of the Helium hotspots’ performance. Their decentralized speed tests provide trust-free verification of connection speed for hotspots.

How Different Types of Devices Can Contribute to OORT Edge


Deimos contributes storage and compute capabilities.

HNT Devices

HNT hotspots contribute to the bandwidth.

For Prospective OORT Edge Miners

In OORT’s upcoming testnet, Ascraeus, miners are free to choose from or obtain both Deimos and Helium hotspots. Details will be released soon.

For HNT Manufacturers
