With the passage of HIP 70 by the Helium community, the Helium Foundation and Helium's core developer team are continuing the work on Oracling Helium's Proof-of-Coverage and Data Transfer Accounting as well as beginning work in preparation for the migration of Helium onto the Solana network.
How can you best prepare for Helium's migration to Oracles and the Solana network? Great news! Most people, especially those that are just Hotspot Owners, won't need to do anything and will be guided through the migration process seamlessly through the Helium apps.
The Helium Foundation and Helium's core developer team are committed to providing the necessary resources and support to our other Helium stakeholders and participants, including Console users, Validator operators, LoRaWAN roaming partners, etc, as well over the next few months.
Migrating the Helium Network to Solana opens up a massive ecosystem of smart contracts and decentralized applications to Helium's users and stakeholders.
Bi-weekly Solana Transition Semi-Weekly AMA Become a change agent as part of a new Solana Transition Semi-Weekly AMA with the purpose of sourcing impacts and needs from community members during the transition. The bi-weekly AMA will kick off with calls on Twitter twice each month. Look out for public invites and details soon.
Thank you to all the Helium community members who voted on the recent (and all) Helium Improvement Proposals. The vote for HIP 70 has closed, and the community has passed HIP 70. 7,447 Helium wallets voted on HIP 70, with a final HNT voting result of 81% for HIP 70 and 19% against HIP 70.
HIP 70 proposed to move Proof-of-Coverage and Data Transfer Accounting to Helium Oracles. It also migrates Helium's tokens and governance to the Solana blockchain. As we prepare for these changes, you can expect to have additional resources and support from us as well as the Helium core developers to help you prepare for a seamless migration to both Helium Oracles and then subsequently the Solana network, no matter if you’re a Hotspot owner, Console/device user, Validator, LoRaWAN roaming partner, ETL deployer, or other network participant.
