What is Helium (HNT) crypto?

It is a decentralized blockchain-powered network for the Internet of Things (IoT) devices. It allows low-powered devices to communicate and send data across the nodes in the network.

The nodes create the so-called Hotspots, a wireless gateway and a blockchain mining device. The network uses a new consensus algorithm, the proof-of-coverage, allowing nodes to reach consensus when connection quality changes. Users are charged a transaction fee through the Data Credits token, which is non-exchangeable.
