Helium’s Frank Mong: Scaling to 1M Nodes, Capping HNT Supply and 5G/WiFi Plans 📡

Nov 11, 2020 ·

By Tom Shaughnessy

Chain Reaction Host Tom Shaughnessy hosts Frank Mong, the COO of Helium. The two discuss Helium’s plans to grow nodes from ~12K much higher and globally, HIP20 which will hard cap supply while allowing the network to run and future plans of WiFi and 5G. We previously covered Helium in a post in December 2019.
