What is SmartMesh?
SmartMesh strive to connect people to the internet even when they are technically offline and this is possible through their innovative peer to peer connection using Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Through their in-built light nodes or relayers, Internet-free-digital payments and transactions is possible. SmartMesh technology allows for development of decentralized mesh networks that can self-repair and are definitely an improvement to ordinary internet connections.
There’s an era that exists between Internet of Things and Internet of Everything where everything is connected and SmartMesh tries to break through thatbridge. To connect to Ethereum even when gadgets are cut off from internet, they use Geth and for execution of off-chain transactions, they make use of Raiden.
Some SmartMesh applications that will be of great assistance include: Internet-free- mobile payments, Internet-free communications for areas with poor communication service and network decongestion.
The ecosystem have some unique features like: The Spectrum which incorporates IoT and consensus mechanisms, SmartRaiden which enables safe, convenient and offline crypto transfers and transactions and SmartMesh Protocol.
Through the token incentive feature users that connect and transmit data through this platform are rewarded with SmartMesh Network Token(SMT) tokens which are based on Ethereum. SMT token is the main chain of spectrum protocol in the SmartMesh network and the longer users stay on the network the more SMT tokens rewards they acquire.
