Ammbr brings the Internet to new places using blockchain and wireless mesh technology.
Ammbr is a blockchain-based wireless mesh network that buys and sells Internet bandwidth autonomously, using the AMR cryptocurrency. Ammbr’s network can bring reliable Internet access to places that do not have it, without relying on legacy Internet service providers.
What is Ammbr?
Ammbr is a wireless mesh network built on blockchain technology.
Internet connectivity is traded 24/7 in an autonomous marketplace.
Consider this: In Denmark (population 5.7 million), 97.09% of the population uses the Internet, compared to Eritrea (population 4.95 million) where just 1.177% of its population is online. In simpler terms, between two countries of a comparable population, one of them has nearly as many Internet users as the other does not have. This represents the problem that Ammbr was created to solve; with more than 4.1 billion people around the world lacking a reliable connection to the Internet, it is faster and more efficient for us to come together as a community to bring Internet access to new places, rather than relying on legacy Internet service providers and telecom companies to do so.
The Ammbr network, which distributes Internet bandwidth using a “mesh” network of many distributed Internet routers, uses a proprietary cryptocurrency called AMR as its native currency. AMR can support a high rate of micro-transactions, enabling a smooth exchange of Internet bandwidth through Ammbr. Once the connectivity is delivered, Ammbr will also deliver additional functionality to drive sustainable economic activity, thus bringing the advantages of the Internet currently enjoyed by more developed regions.
To sell Internet access, it truly is as simple as purchasing an Ammbr router, linking it to your Internet connection, and availing your Internet bandwidth to users on the Ammbr network. When people use your bandwidth, they will automatically pay you through Ammbr, using AMR tokens.
Then, to buy Internet access, simply load Ammbr to your laptop or smartphone to connect to an Ammbr signal. Once you’re connected, you will have access to high-speed Internet. All of the technical activity, including the AMR token payment, takes place seamlessly in the background.
All of these functions can be managed in a user-friendly way, with Ammbr’s easy-to-use applications for smartphones and computers.
Next .... Commodity Trading
The greatest economic activity in emerging communities are mining and agriculture, which produce primary hard and soft commodities.
The export of these commodities should also benefit local communities.
Commodities are, broadly speaking, delivered either to local or to international markets. A marketplace therefore also faces the hurdle of scaling geographically. The Ammbr commodity trading platform solves this by presenting flexible economic and governance frameworks, rooted in blockchain, that easily adapts to multiple jurisdictional constraints, and provides payment and settlement globally. The inclusion of surrounding commumnities in the profit stream becomes a matter of transparent policy, which makes sustainable, socially responsible programmes possible without dependence on outside charity.
The platform utilises smart contracts and cryptocurrency payments at the core of its payment infrastructure. Buyers and sellers agree to a string of documentary and delivery conditions mediated by trusted third party service providers (oracles) and transparent smart contracts published on the blockchain to ensure payments are released at the right time, against the agreed terms and conditions being met. The trade workflows and practices are retained and followed precisely, with efficiencies driving down costs, shortening the transaction time, and ultimately benefitting all parties to the transactions.
