Legacy mobile providers only install their towers where they can make a profit, not always where they’re needed the most. With Pollen, anyone can install a Flower anywhere coverage is needed or desired, as long as power and internet connectivity can also be provided.
It’s a Mobile Network That Pays Users
Pollen is built around a crypto economy powered by PollenCoin (PCN), a proprietary Solana token used to pay community members for providing coverage by installing a Flower(s), validating network coverage using a Bumblebee, and using the network as a Hummingbird.
The more you participate in the Pollen network, the more PCN you earn.
We Put Privacy and Anonymity First
On our network, no one knows who you are, and your information can’t be tracked. We accomplish this in a few specific ways:
No Persistent Logs: No location, data usage, or personally identifiable information is persistently tracked when utilizing the Pollen network. The only user data logged by Pollen is total data consumption for purposes of making payments to Flower owners for the data transmitted for Hummingbird owners and will be deleted within 7 days. Bumblebees logs are uploaded and kept for the purpose of network validation, but deleted in 7 days.
No Personal Information: Pollen is designed to avoid needing any personal information to join the network. Whether you’re a Flower owner, a Bumblebee owner, or a Hummingbird user, by design the network has no way of knowing who you are. The only personal information we collect is for order fulfillment purposes which will be deleted once the return period ends and any data users voluntarily provide.
Data-Only Network: Pollen is a “data only” network, meaning it doesn’t process “phone calls” or “text messages,” which are logged and susceptible to being intercepted. Instead, Pollen is intended to be used with applications such as Signal and iMessage, which facilitate end-to-end encryption and don’t require data to be routed through phone companies.
