The world of decentralized technologies is witnessing an impressive growth of decentralized physical infrastructure networks (DePIN) on the Solana blockchain. Innovative projects like Helium, Hivemapper, and the upcoming Render are leveraging Solana's fee structure and speed to disrupt their respective domains. Through on-chain analysis created by Twitter user Jack, we explore the growth and adoption trends of Helium and Hivemapper, two leading DePIN projects on Solana.

Helium's Explosive Growth

Helium, a decentralized application that rewards users for deploying physical infrastructure to provide internet connectivity, has experienced tremendous growth since April 18th. Over 740,000 Helium NFTs have been minted on Solana in less than a month, representing physical devices offering 5G bandwidth and IoT connectivity. Additionally, over 300,000 wallets have migrated from the Helium blockchain to Solana, further emphasizing Solana's potential as the go-to platform for DePIN projects.
