Fandomfare Gaming - The world is changing. Rapidly. The onset of new technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and the Blockchain has led to paradigm shifts in industries globally.
IOT projects are building communities of the future and Athero is at the forefront of this technological revolution. Combining blockchain with IOT to form the “internet of blockchains” will open many possibilities for development and improve transparency, security, and data encryption. In turn, this will remove the need for middlemen, boost opportunity and community participation, and reduce friction and cost for citizens and consumers alike.
Athero is powered by the THO token, the primary exchange medium between the users of the platform. The THO is an open-source, decentralized, and worldwide network. A supercomputer that can be accessed by any user easily. Moreover, it is highly secure and scalable.
The benefit of this is a reduced cost of linking systems, increased system security and value of data sharing, and more user privacy. The primary focus of Athero’s THO chain is scalability, security, and real-time issues faced by blockchain in IoT.
Thus, Athero integrates IoT, blockchain, and distributed encryption storage to build a new generation of IoT solutions. This can provide entire solutions for data acquisition, sharing, and application in the IoT industry.
Athero’s blockchain will change the roles of users, IoT devices, and vendors in the IoT system. For example, vendors no longer need to maintain hundreds or thousands of IT systems in different systems. These changing roles will attract more participants, reshape the rules of the market, and create entirely new business models.
ABOUT ATHERO’S SMART CITY CONCEPT SOLUTIONS
Athero provides smart city concept solutions by leveraging the blockchain technology to bring new potential to the Internet of Things. Following are some of the smart city concept solutions offered by Athero:
- IoT-Enabled Wi-Fi-Ready Solar Smart Bench Network
- IoT-Enabled Smart Car Parking Technology
- Data Sharing (IoT) — Making all data available to and at the disposal of users via THO Chain and blockchain technology
To provide the above solutions, Athero manufactures and sells solar powered air and pollution sensors, wi-fi ready smart benches, and car parking systems. Athero’s motto is to drive demand through adoption. Athero will look for real-life application of its innovative technology and fill an empty space in current economy model.
Athero’s Smart Benches are solar-powered and eco-friendly, contributing to the purpose of smart cities to boost their citizens’ quality of life. Combining Smart Sensors with an integrated cloud platform, the Smart Benches will analyze the surrounding environment and relay real-time data on air quality, weather patterns, and internet provisioning. Every bench is connected via our blockchain Smart Bench Network, and this data sharing will maximize the efficiency and problem-solving ability of the network.
The Smart bench is optimal for four people. It can be optionally equipped with an Emergency SOS button connected directly to the National Emergency System. Current city benches are outdated. Smart Benches are new innovative urban furniture that will help cities, universities, and businesses create better, safer, and more user-friendly environments. We have already sold benches to private companies and are in talks with several cities in central and western Europe.
ATHERO’S PLANS FOR THE FUTURE
To enable its blockchain technology for real world use, Athero is increasing its partnerships in different sectors. Athero wants to keep the technology safe and up to date by continuously researching the newest technological standards and continuously expanding its cooperations with international research institutions. Additionally, it is putting an emphasis on web technology and a mobile-first approach to bring blockchain technology to the next level of adoption.
According to Athero’s roadmap for the implementation of its technology, the last quarter of 2018 would see the application of the smart city concept, the availability of Wi-Fi ready solar smart bench network, and the mass production of Athero’s technology. Quarter 1 of 2019 will see the beta launch of the decentralized exchange, Q2 will see alpha test of main net Athero blockchain, Q3 will see the launch of main net Athero blockchain, while Q4 is when we will finally have a decentralized marketplace.
