Unleashing the Potential of Web3: MetaBlox and its User-Centric Network Revolution
Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs) possess immense potential to reshape the future landscape of the internet, ushering in a revolutionary approach to verifying our digital identities. The path to achieving this transformation remains ambiguous as we witness the emergence of Web3, a paradigm shift from platform-centric to user-centric networking. The crucial aspect of a user-centric network lies in users defining their identities and determining the information they wish to share with others. After years of unwavering dedication, the MetaBlox team has released a breakthrough protocol that uses DIDs to provide a decentralized groundwork for creating a user-centric network. The team is diligently working to build the foundation for a web3 user-centric network that can support web3 native apps. The MetaBlox Network mobile app represents a major step toward this lofty goal. With this software, users may take the first necessary step toward gaining access to a Free Privacy Protected WiFi Network by registering a DID and automatically uploading it to the blockchain and, in the process, earn mPoints that can be used on the further development of the network. The platform has a lot of benefits that make it stand out. First and foremost, the team believes that the most compelling aspect of MetaBlox is that it is a user-centric network supported by a rewarding system for its users and builders. MetaBlox hopes to model itself after the prosperous Web 2.0 period, during which prominent corporations gave away their services for free to demonstrate the efficacy of their monetization schemes. In Web 3.0, MetaBlox seeks to replicate this prosperity with a significant distinction. Instead of profits accruing solely to private entities, MetaBlox positions itself as a decentralized solution, enabling users and network maintainers to reap the rewards. Unlike the Helium Network, which employs LORA technology, MetaBlox operates as a WiFi Network, affording the bandwidth necessary to accommodate many users, thus substantially expanding monetization opportunities for all stakeholders involved. Powering the User-Oriented Web3: MetaBlox's OpenRoaming Initiative and Decentralized Connectivity MetaBlox's decentralized OpenRoaming WiFi Network made great strides toward creating a user-oriented Web3. Several major Web3 investment businesses and organizations contributed over $2 million to the initiative. The OpenRoaming Network expanded the worldwide WiFi network by deploying hundreds of MetaBlox Miners as blockchain nodes, allowing for secure, password-free, automated connections using Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs). To create an OpenRoaming network with over a million access points, MetaBlox collaborated with the Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA). The WBA Wireless Global Congress also saw a successful demonstration of their technology. Users may now create their own WiFi OpenRoaming profiles and have access to Web3 capabilities with the newly released software. Notably, MetaBlox teamed up with other initiatives such as Harmony, Caldance, Memolabs, and Deeper Network to accomplish its goals. MetaBlox Network's Blockchain Integration for DeFi, GameFi, and NFTs MetaBlox Network uses blockchain technology to improve the quality of its products and services significantly. Because of Blockchain technology, users' hotspot routers may double as crypto miners, earning them tokens in exchange for giving WiFi access. With this decentralized deployment approach, MetaBlox Network can steadily increase its worldwide presence and reach as an incentive for network development. In addition, combining the MetaBlox Network with blockchain technology unleashes many novel possibilities. Decentralized finance (DeFi) platforms, game finance (GameFi) ecosystems, and NFT markets may all be accessed confidentially and safely by users. Individuals may make money with digital assets by participating in farming and staking activities on DeFi networks. At the same time, the system provides unhindered entry to the increasing universe of GameFi and Play-to-Earn games, with strong security provided by blockchain-held credentials in place of the more archaic passwords. MetaBlox Network was developed in response to the rapidly growing NFT sector, and it provides users with simple access to NFT markets and wallets by use of their DIDs. The firm has established its collection of utility-based NFTs, seen on major platforms like OpenSea, as evidence of its dedication to the blockchain ecosystem. MetaBlox Network aims to offer a genuinely user-centric experience that adapts to the new digital environment by integrating Web3, the Metaverse, 5G rollout, DeFi, and DID-based technologies. MetaBlox's $MBLX Token and Its Role in Decentralized Network Development MetaBlox is hard at work creating a user-focused, open, and free system for anyone who wants to use it. To encourage the development of a native Web3 network, which is in accordance with this goal, the $MBLX token has been introduced. Businesses that want to sell goods or provide services inside the MetaBlox ecosystem are the primary target users of the $MBLX token. These companies actively contribute to developing decentralized ownership inside the next generation of wireless networks by earning and using $MBLX tokens. The $MBLX token's main benefit over competing tokens is that it was made with Web3 users' insatiable curiosity about the platform's features in mind. These customers can take advantage of all the Web3 ecosystem offers once they adopt $MBLX. MetaBlox's Founding Members and Their Remarkable Technological Achievements The first MetaBlox team mostly comprises employees from the leading organizations that make up the alliance's founding members, which are located in North America and Asia. These businesses focus on developing and implementing state-of-the-art technologies, including blockchain, IoT, Telco, AI, and financial services. The alliance members range from large, publicly traded corporations to small, innovative startups, but they all have one thing in common: a desire to build a Web3 network that puts users' wants and needs first. The founding coalition has made great progress and accomplished outstanding feats during the previous four years. They collaborated with the Canadian federal government on the first blockchain program, among other pioneering endeavors. Further distinguishing themselves, they were the first group to combine blockchain technology with eSIM and Bluetooth chips. It's worth noting that the alliance members are active contributors to the Decentralized ID Foundation. This shows their dedication to spreading the use of decentralized identification systems. WiGig is a broadband version of WiFi, and the alliance members are among the few businesses in the world that have access to this technology. Their proficiency with WiGig technology enables them to provide reliable and fast wireless network options. Their work in the development of AI is another significant achievement of the original alliance members. They are pioneers in AI edge computing, having designed and produced one of the earliest system-on-a-chip (SOC) devices. This technological advancement provides high-performance and smart computing capabilities at the network's periphery, allowing for instantaneous data processing and analysis. Members of the alliance have made significant investments in several high-profile initiatives throughout the decentralized finance (DeFi), gaming finance (GameFi), and non-fungible token (NFT) spaces, demonstrating their commitment to the development of these industries beyond just technological means. Investing in promising startups like 1inch and Axie Infinity demonstrates their dedication to fostering growth and development in the nascent blockchain industry. Final Thoughts The advent of Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs) has the potential to reshape the future of the internet by revolutionizing the way we verify our digital identities. As Web3 emerges, shifting from platform-centric to user-centric networking, the MetaBlox team has made remarkable progress in developing a protocol that leverages DIDs to establish a decentralized foundation for a user-centric network. Their commitment to building a web3 native network that supports user-centric applications is evident in the MetaBlox Network mobile app. Disclaimer: This article is provided for informational purposes only.

Polkadot (DOT) and Solana (SOL) Showcase Worrying Performance And Investors Turn to Sparklo (SPRK)
There are over 27,700 cryptocurrencies for investors and traders to pick from, and as such, it can be difficult to make a decision as to exactly what they want to make an investment in. However, by following the overall market narrative, they can have a much higher level of understanding of what direction the overall market is heading towards. As such, with the recent decrease in the value of Polkadot (DOT) and Solana (SOL), investors and traders have turned towards the Sparko presale, and today, we will go over why this might be the case. >>>> BUY SPARKLO TOKENS <<< Polkadot (DOT) Sees 15.5% Decrease Despite Ecosystem Growth Polkadot (DOT) announced its latest Polkadot Roundup with all of the highlights from a week of sustained activity and development. Additionally, in June, two Polkadot (DOT) events were announced to take place in Prague, including Polkadot Prague and NFTs In Prague. It is clear that the Polkadot (DOT) ecosystem is in full swing. However, its value has still been in decline. As of May 2, 2023, Polkadot (DOT) traded at $5.66. In the last 30 days, Polkadot (DOT) decreased value by 10.9%, and in the last two weeks, the crypto decreased by 15.5%, worrying investors. Solana (SOL) Sees a Significant 11.2% Decrease Solana (SOL) made waves in April when it introduced the Helium Network to the ecosystem, which finished its migration to the blockchain. Additionally, Superteam announced that the Solana (SOL) Ecosystem Call came back. Superteam Germany also showcased the Sega smartphone at the event in Berlin. As for the value of the Solana (SOL) cryptocurrency, as of May 2, 2023, it traded at $21.82. In the last two weeks, Solana (SOL) decreased by 11.2%. In the last 24 hours alone, the Solana (SOL) cryptocurrency has decreased by 2.1%. Sparklo (SPRK) Gains Presale Momentum Sparklo will be an innovative platform for alternative investments that enables anyone an opportunity to dive into the precious metals industry and make fractionalized NFT investments within silver, gold, and platinum. Every time someone aims to utilize Sparklo and wants to make an investment, a non-fungible token (NFT) gets minted that represents a precious metal, such as a gold, silver, or platinum bar. Then, these NFTs are fractionalized, which means that investors can either buy the full NFT or just buy a fraction of it. As a cryptocurrency protocol, Sparklo will be the first platform to enable this type of functionality. Throughout its level, one presale, the SPRK token trades at $0.017, and analysts predict a 40x jump in value upon launch. We believe that this is an excellent opportunity for investors to get into the potential blue-chip crypto, which has significant growth for potential. As for its security, it has already been audited by InterFi Network. The liquidity on top of Sparklo will also be locked for 100 years.

Polygon (MATIC) and Solana (SOL) Showcase Worrying performance as investors diversify with Sparklo (SPRK)
The blockchain space is ever-evolving, and new projects are popping up consistently, aiming to provide a solution to some specific issue that has been a part of the traditional investment space. Sparklo is one such project that will be the go-to platform where investors can easily begin making investments in fractionalized NFTS that represent precious metals. With the decrease in the value of competing projects such as Polygon (MATIC) and Solana (SOL), investors and traders aiming to get the most out of the space will typically diversify at these times. Polygon (MATIC) To Participate in Starkware&rsquo;s L2 Peace The official Polygon (MATIC) Twitter page made an announcement that on April 21, 2023, Jordi Baylina and Bobbin Threadbare will participate in Starkware&rsquo;s L2 Peace. Additionally, Polygon (MATIC) will also hold a Polygon (MATIC) zkEVM Mainnet Beta AMA where they will provide updates on security, performance metrics, and the roadmap. On April 20, 2023, the Polygon (MATIC) cryptocurrency traded at $1.09. In the last 24 hours, Polygon (MATIC) decreased by 1.3%, and its overall decrease in the last two weeks has been at 4.3%. Helium Network Migrates To Solana (SOL), but it's Coin Still Loses Value Solana (SOL) made a huge announcement on April 19, 2023, noting that Helium Network completed its upgrade and finished its migration to the blockchain. The Helium Network will now run on top of Solana (SOL), and the global IoT and Cellular data will be powered by the network. When we go over the value of Solana (SOL), on April 20, 2023, the cryptocurrency traded at $22.75. In the last 24 hours, Solana (SOL) dipped by 1.6%, and in the last seven days, it has been down by a total of 4.7%. Based on this, it is clear why investors are beginning to diversify away from Solana (SOL) into presale-stage projects. Sparklo (SPRK) To Bring Fractional NFT Ownerships in Gold, Silver, and Platinum Sparklo will be the go-to investment platform that will enable anyone on a global scale an opportunity to begin making investments in silver, gold, and platinum through fractional ownership of non-fungible tokens (NTs). This means that on top of Sparklo, every time an investment is made, an NFT is minted. Investors can buy a specific percentage of an NFT, a fraction, or they can buy the entire NFT. Upon gaining ownership of an NFT fully that is a representation of a gold bar, for example, they can have it delivered at a location of their choosing. As for its price, the Level One presale has placed the SPRK token at a value of $0.015. Analysts predict that its value will jump 40x in the upcoming months. The team is also processing a KYC application, but the network has already been audited by InterFi network and will have its liquidity locked for 100 years.

Decentralized Wireless Project Helium Begins Move to Solana Blockchain
The change aims to make Helium faster and cheaper to operate.

About Helium?

The live price of Helium (HNT) today is 8.3372 USD, and with the current circulating supply of Helium at 160,875,441.82 HNT, its market capitalization stands at 1,341,256,641 USD. In the last 24 hours HNT price has moved ? USD or 0.00% while ? USD worth of HNT has been traded on various exchanges. The current valuation of HNT puts it at #81 in cryptocurrency rankings based on market capitalization.

Learn more about the Helium blockchain network and how it works or follow the price of its native cryptocurrency HNT and the broader market with our unique COIN360 cryptocurrency heatmap.

Founded in 2013 by game developer Amir Haleem, Napster creator Shawn Fanning and Systems Engineer Sean Carrey, Helium network was launched in 2019 as a decentralized blockchain network allowing interconnectivity and communication between low-powered wireless IoT (Internet of Things) devices. These wireless devices transmit data through the network’s nodes, also called Hotspots, which work both as mining devices as well as wireless gateways. 

Hotspots usually come in the form of simple devices which can be installed in offices or homes, and earn their owners (node operators) rewards in Helium’s native coin HNT (Helium Network Token). Referred to as ‘The People’s Network’, Helium’s network is considered the world’s fastest-growing and largest LoRaWANs (Low Range Wide Area Network).

This network functions based on open-source, sophisticated technologies, which when combined, create a trustless and truly decentralized model for constructing wireless infrastructure. These technologies include but are not limited to: Proof of Coverage algorithm, HNT tokens & Data Credits and the Helium LongFi.

Helium’s main aim is to enhance the communication capabilities of IoT devices and shape a decentralized wireless infrastructure for the future.

HNT price

HNT crypto price stayed well under a dollar for almost a year after its mainnet launch in 2019. During this time, Helium was laying the ground for its network in different parts of the world. While HNT coin price breached the $2 mark for the first time in September 2020, its next big surge came along with a market-wide uptrend in February 2021, when it rallied to register a high of around $24 in late May 2021. 

A price correction for the entire crypto market followed thereafter. According to our HNT live price chart, the coin sprung back into action in late July 2021, when its price made a gradual ascent to almost $27 by August 2021. This spike came on the back of a $111 million token sale to multiple investors including Andreessen Horowitz and the network having crossed the 100k Hotspots mark earlier that month. 

The price of HNT coin hit an all-time high of over $59 on November 7, 2021, 3 days before BTC registered its own ATH for the year amidst bullish market conditions. HNT’s fully diluted valuation on that day was well above $13 billion. After that, however, the coin’s price receded into the low $20s in the first half of 2022. 

How HNT works

Helium’s ecosystem comprises node operators that run Hotspots and provide network coverage over a specific radius, its developer community and IoT devices that use the network for sending and receiving data.

Helium blockchain employs a novel algorithm referred to as ‘Proof of Coverage’ (PoC) which verifies that Hotspots are actually situated where they claim to be. In other words, it constantly verifies the Hotspots’ locations and that they’re offering wireless network coverage from that point.

Its consensus protocol, called the Helium Consensus Protocol, is based on the HoneyBadger BFT (HBBFT) protocol. As a result, it is tolerant of Byzantine failures, ensuring that consensus is reached as long as there is a certain minimum number of participants. 

HNT cryptocurrency is used to reward node operators for their work. Apart from HNT, node operators also earn a transaction fee in the form of a separate token called Data Credits (DCs), paid by the network users. While HNT is mined and distributed among the Hotspot owners, investors and Helium Inc., the Data Credits are non-fungible tokens that are created by burning HNT through a Burn-and-Mint equilibrium. These are non-exchangeable and tied to a single user.

As mentioned above, all transactions done on the Helium blockchain are paid for in DCs, and the fee paid varies depending upon the task. More details on transaction fees can be found here. At the time of writing, Helium blockchain had a block creation time of 60.51 seconds.

HNT news, updates and highlights

HNT price movements are largely co-related to various external and internal factors. For instance, Helium coin's price usually rises whenever any noteworthy partnership, expansion or adoption-related news comes to the fore. The same also happens when the crypto market witnesses an overall bullish sentiment.

An example of such news is when in October 2021 Helium announced a significant partnership with DISH Network, that further expanded its distributed 5G platform. The collaboration offered the subscribers of DISH Network an opportunity to run Helium nodes and earn HNT coins in return.

Similarly, in February 2022, Helium managed to raise $200 million in a Series D funding round, at a $1.2 billion valuation. Among the news investors were FTX Ventures and Tiger Global. The funds were necessary to help Helium significantly expand its global footprint.
