By utilizing mesh networking technology, we are able to create an interconnected network of smart devices without the need for traditional cell towers, data plans or ISPs. Each device that connects to the Mesh will do so using Bluetooth (or WiFi if available) and each device will act as a ‘mini cell tower’ or repeater (node) which extends the range of the network.
For example, picture a train with 6 carriages and each carriage contains 1 BlockMesh user. User 1 wants to send a message to User 6. The message (data) that User 1 sends to User 6 will be passed through each other device (2,3,4,5) on the network (all data is encrypted) until it reaches the recipient in carriage 6.
We are currently working on releasing our hardware (Meshex Booster) and software (app) on Android and iOS devices so that we can begin building communities of BlockMesh users (#Meshies).
We are also working with our partner, Smart App Tech, to integrate a retail point of sale system which will accept digital and cryptocurrencies as a form of rewards/payment that customers can use to gets products and services from many stores across Africa.
