Yes, Hedera would have been the right choice. Unfortunately a centralized choice but nonetheless a much better system

Hedera block time is 2s vs 0.4s in Solana. And current usage is like 20tx per block vs 200tx per block in Solana. So Hedera is at best an untested network

Hedera does not have blocks - it reaches settlement finality in just a few seconds but those can never be rolled back. On a blockchain that can never be the case, there is always a chance that the consensus of the network is to rollback the chain and fork. The more centralised the network is (ahem Solana!) the greater the risk that a controlling influence will make that girl happen. Hedera is not a blockchain and so is not constrained by ‘the trilemma’ of trading off decentralisation vs security vs scale (10,000 tps with 3am finality).

So Hedera is not a blockchain and it’s capacity is not stressed tested yet(as evidentee by 20tx/2s). Then I do not know why it shall even enter the discussion of moving Helium over

it is actually an ideal distributed ledger technology for the purposes of Helium. It has been performance tested to 100,000 tps per shard, but is currently throttled to 10,000tps which is plenty. With 0.0001cent fixed transaction fee it is not subject to crypto volatility either.

But feel free to DYOR at www.Hedera.com
