APPLICATION

Instead of relying on Internet Service Providers, data on the Fognet is transferred directly from peer-to-peer. Fognet distributes the costs of running a network among all participants — incentivizing people to participate and increasing availability for all.

IOTA PROTOCOL

The IOTA network does not use mining, token inflation, or proof-of-stake, so tokens can be transferred for free. IOTA tokens will be used on the FogNet to stabilize network traffic, monetize creative content, and sell valuable data without any intermediary.

BLUETOOTH MESH

Bluetooth uses orders of magnitude less electricity than WiFi. The low-energy footprint of Fognet nodes will allow them to be powered by solar or battery, and be deployed in resource-constrained environments such as rural villages or inner-city neighborhoods.
