Connect people via a self-sustaining network that has the ability to reward participation. Our methodology is to enable this change by running an efficient commercial business model.

Mobile telephony providers have implemented a very aggressive diffusion strategy for mobile networks, especially throughout Africa. The aggressive mobile telephony strategy has increased its market share, adoption of smart technology and infrastructure. Our technology relies on the adoption and market share characteristics, not infrastructure.

BlockMesh, a software company based in Mauritius – utilizes the latest innovations in mesh networking technology to create cost-free communication networks and aim to disrupt the global communications industry in 2018. Mesh technology is a telecommunications system that can work outside of regular cellular tower range due to the peer-to-peer mesh network it enables. By creating a network powered by Bluetooth – or WIFI, if available – the mesh network sidesteps typical cellular and data costs imposed by the incumbents. BlockMesh utilizes the latest innovations in mesh networking technology to create cost-free communication networks and aim to disrupt the global communications industry in 2018. A telecomms system that can work outside of regular cellular tower range.

Our objective is to empower users with a smart device to be enabled to at their choosing, receive encrypted data from a recipient whom will collect the data then relay it along the mesh network until received by the designated recipient. The mesh network route will then be rewarded for data passed on. This will mine our “Mesh Token” which then can also be used to pay peer to peer via our wallet. The token itself will be developed on the Ethereum network.

    The team finalised the concept, launch strategy and ICO date in order to future-proof the project.
