Here’s How Helium Blockchain Will Boost Its Transaction Speed




VOC, Voice of Crypto, Blockchain

It isn’t every day that the developers of a blockchain make headlines for actually going the extra mile for the user community’s convenience. That is why Helium blockchain migration has made heads turn in the crypto news niche. Once their migration to the Solana blockchain is processed, the community will get to look forward to faster transactions and smoother crypto operations overall.

Helium Blockchain Migration: a Popular Move

The Helium blockchain migration resulted from widespread consensus; the Helium higher-ups deserve kudos for considering the users’ opinions. The decentralized Wi-Fi of the Helium blockchain, called the HIP 70, was voted to be migrated to the Solana blockchain. 

The committee decided through overwhelming votes by the majority of the Helium blockchain users. It stands at around 6,177 votes in favor of this decision that staked more than 12 million HNT. 

Why Solana?

Recently, Solana users have been reporting certain issues with the speed of the blockchain. Recent network outages and a case of network exploit could indicate that Solana might not have been the best option for blockchain migration.

However, transactions made on the platform seem to remain outside the scope of the reported issues. Thus, they don’t pose much of a problem for the community. Besides, since its launch in 2020, Solana has reached the one billion transaction milestone in 2020.


This indicates that despite sporadic issues, Solana’s claim of impressive transactional speed is valid. Overall, it is evident that user commitment and faith in the Solana blockchain is steady enough for this move to be collectively approved.

Objective Smoother Operations

Helium’s blockchain migration is the migration of choice, not just for the community. Developers and Helium higher-ups have been interested in the migration, particularly to Solana, to help improve the protocol’s scalability and interoperability. This will, in turn, facilitate smoother transactions and ancillary operations.

All sorts of Helium crypto elements, like tokens and the like, will also survive the migration and simply be transferred to the Solana network. For example, HNT tokens will continue to be usable in the Helium crypto environment and will not pose a problem to the users. 

Developers Hint a New Wallet App

To make things even more conducive, a new Helium Wallet App is set to be launched after the smooth migration process. With this, developers are resolving the issue of converting to the app by the users by making the Helium layer one blockchain history public.

That way, users can simply update the old versions of their current app to segue smoothly to the new Wallet App without transferring all their related data to a new platform.

Besides, Solana wallets will remain usable, making it unnecessary for the Solana blockchain community to worry about any of this. Overall, users look forward to a very convenient and hassle-free migration experience!
