Helium boasts of increased usage, but there’s more than meets the eye
The Helium Network, which garnered a lot of interest after its migration to Solana, witnessed a massive uptick in terms of its usage and other metrics over the past year.
Here’s AMBCrypto’s Price Prediction for Helium for 2022-2023
In a twitter thread posted on the 6 November, the Helium Foundation released some data about its network growth. Reportedly, the usage of the network grew from 2.2 billion to 7.5 billion from 2021 to 2022.
Along with that, the Helium network made multiple collaborations with companies such as T-Mobile and also with products such as the Solana Saga phone.
In lieu of these events, the Helium network’s coin HNT witnessed an uptick in its volume. As can be seen from the image below, its volume grew from 4.23 million to 5.47 million over the course of last week.
Not all that glitters
Along with its growing volume, the Helium network’s social engagements increased as well. According to LunarCrush, a social media analytics firm, the number of engagements grew by 72.5% over the last week.
