Helium, Inc (or simply Helium) was founded in 2013 by Amir Haleem, Sean Carey, and Shawn Fanning to build the world's first peer-to-peer wireless network, The People's Network, to simplify connecting devices to the internet. Powered by the Helium Blockchain, Helium enables anyone to be rewarded in cryptocurrency, HNT, for becoming a network operator and providing connectivity for a new class of Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
The company is based in San Francisco, California.
The company launched the Helium Hotspot, a device to provide wireless coverage while mining HNT crypto-tokens on their Helium Blockchain.
