"People's Network" gets city's elbow

An attempt by San Jose, California, to use cryptocurrency-mining wireless hotspots to foot the internet bills for low-income households is kaput. The city has ended its relationship with Helium, a company that sells Wi-Fi generators that serve the dual purpose of minting a token called HNT, which the company has called a "People's Network" of cryptocurrency, after the 20 hotspots San Jose obtained failed to generate much revenue at all. <a href="https://www.forbes.com/sites/sarahemerson/2022/09/23/helium-crypto-tokens-peoples-network/?sh=73af9eaf7316">Forbes</a> also reported last week that Helium's founders have kept a vast majority of mining proceeds.
