Why we’re launching the Hivemapper Mapping Network on the blockchain soon
We’ve designed our blockchain-based mapping network with crypto rewards that will incentivize coverage, quality, and freshness. Additionally, blockchain technology facilitates a new level of encryption, privacy, and anonymity. Contributors will be able to “map mine” our cryptocurrency token Honey (HONEY). This will grow the Hivemapper Mapping Network in a completely new way.
Next month, we will publish a document that outlines the tokenomics of Honey, the burn and mint system with a net emissions model, and how the system will incentivize map coverage, freshness, and quality.
