Is Helium Better Than Match X?

Both networks leverage blockchain technology to compensate specific wireless radios for providing connectivity to edge devices. Currently, these devices are low-powered monitoring computers that provide data back to their users, organizations, or clients. There were two classic approaches utilized before Helium and MatchX entered the market.

WiFi networks are popular and convenient, but they have downsides—a small range. WiFi has a maximum capacity of 250 feet. It uses lots of pows. WiFi’s purpose is not to conserve power. Thus it consumes a lot to stay connected. It has a weak signal. WiFi generally relies on low-cost consumer hardware to cover. The transmissions travel over a crowded spectrum.

To provide cellular coverage, private companies use cell towers. The most significant benefit of cellular networks is roaming across the country. But there are downsides. Cellular networks are costly and require devices to pay an upfront price regardless of data usage. Like WiFi, it is a power hog. Cellular networks are cautious about what devices they accept on their networks and typically demand costly certification processes.

Helium and Match X utilize LORA for data transmission, with the 27kbps highest transfer rate. LORA is too slow for today’s internet and cannot transfer photos or other rich media information. They developed LORA to transport data across great distances, mainly for IoT devices. LORA allows low-power devices to communicate with the cloud without the limitations of regular communication networks.

Each company uses the blockchain to construct a decentralized communication platform. Investors who bought miners received cryptocurrency for providing wireless backhaul for client data transport. The blockchain rewards Helium miners with HNT while Match miners with MXC.

Both Helium and Match X Have Forums, Subreddits, and GIT pages, but Their Activity Varies

Helium now has over 15,000 miners, many of whom are already covering the country. Helium welcomes participation in this vibrant community. Others help by commenting on HIPs, creating edge devices, or training others on correct antenna techniques. The Discord is always active, as is the subreddit. Due to the rapid expansion of the Helium Network, third-party suppliers are now developing miners. Currently, over 5,000 miners are back-ordered, with more to come.

Match X, on the other hand, is catching up. The network now includes over 3,400 miners. The smaller footprint means a smaller Discord following and a less active forum. It could alter as Match-X grows. The Discord is happening, and the developers respond swiftly.

While there are numerous parallels, there are also substantial distinctions, and I believe one may have a distinct edge.

Helium and Match X seem to profit differently. Helium Inc has a lot of HNT, and their success is connected to the crypto’s worth, not selling miners. The crypto already permits third-party production of miners. They also gave away free keys to start your miner. Sadly, it discontinued. On the other hand, the Match X company is looking to profit right away — by selling you a costly miner. The Match X Pro miner is presently available for purchase for 3,000 dollars.

Match X and Helium have numerous superficial similarities. But it’s the fine print and tech that will determine who succeeds. After all, competition fosters invention.
