One Global OpenRoaming Network #
MetaBlox Network is building one decentralized WiFi OpenRoaming network. To access it, users don’t have to create an account with a provider or give out any login or personal information. All they need is a decentralized ID (DID), which can be generated for free on the MetaBlox Network app. Users don’t even have to manually enter their DID to connect to the network– instead, they simply open the app when within range of a compatible router.
After initial connection to the network, users will automatically connect to other in-range routers without opening the app again. This enables seamless WiFi roaming, where an internet connection is continuously maintained for users across nodes.
The OpenRoaming network is global, and includes the Wireless Broadband Alliance’s million+ access points in addition to those provided by MetaBlox Network. So in addition to MetaBlox Network routers, DID-users can automatically connect to free WiFi at any of the WBA’s worldwide access points. They can also roam seamlessly across MetaBlox nodes and those in the WBA.
MetaBlox Network WiFi will be available at busy locations such as…
Host locations are offered various incentives to use a MetaBlox router for their WiFi access point. Hosts don’t need to switch or cancel their existing internet subscription to receive a MetaBlox router and benefit from upgraded WiFi services. WiFi users at these sites will be able to access the OpenRoaming network, while site owners can receive $MBLX tokens from the routers.
Host site owners will also be able to view internet usage data for their locations, and can also use MetaBlox Network’s’ decentralized access protocol for their own specific WiFi based purposes. Hosts can issue their own VCs to WiFi users at their sites to let them access specific internet-based services. For instance, a cafe host site could issue VCs as digital proxies for loyalty cards which collect points. MetaBlox protocol would let these credentials automatically accrue points when purchases are made at the cafe..
