In not many hours will be launched on the Algorand mainnet the PlanetWatch project, dedicated to the data collection of air pollutants.
The Algorand blockchain
The blockchain of Algorand (ALGO) lends itself well to save onchain data as its low-fee system (0.001 ALGO) and its speed allow the integration of different projects.
Also, if we think that creating a token Bitcoin Evolution on this blockchain is really simple and cheap, then we see that it is an incentive for several projects use Algorand.
What is PlanetWatch?
Moving on to PlanetWatch, which can boast an all-Italian team, the project deals with data collection related to air pollution, saving the same on the blockchain of Algorand so they are available to all users.
The interesting thing about this project is the use of IoT (Internet of Things) systems that allow you to collect data through a sensor that provides the company by filling out a special form.
This allows not only to record the data but to record it directly in blockchain, without there being any external intervention and therefore tampering with the data.
In addition, the system provides users with the relevant Planet tokens.
The goal is to decentralize and improve standards for air monitoring, said PlanetWatch CEO Claudio Parrinello:
„PlanetWatch will decentralize and raise standards for air quality monitoring. From now on, our air quality data will build the world’s first permanent, tamper-proof global register on the world’s most advanced blockchain“.
This project demonstrates how scalable Algorand’s blockchain is, continued Algorad COO, W. Sean Ford:
„PlanetWatch’s choice of an advanced, scalable blockchain demonstrates their long-term vision and dedication to a lasting environmental interest. We supported this project from the beginning and have a shared vision for sustainable technology. It is very exciting to see the launch on Algorand’s MainNet.
