An interview with John Lyotier from RightMesh. Currently, nearly 4 billion people lack Internet access. That’s 4 billion people who are disenfranchised from the societal and economic benefits brought about by connectivity. RightMesh, seeks to recognize that global connectivity benefits everyone, and their goal is to incentivize the expansion of Internet access worldwide. The digital economy has become synonymous with the economy generally, and bringing the remaining billions online will catalyze global trade, communication, and the exchange of ideas.
Here are the main takeaways from the interview:
- The United Nations deems Internet connectivity to be a basic human right due to the social and economic benefits afforded to those who have access, yet there are currently 4 billion people in the world who lack connectivity.
- RightMesh intends to bridge that gap by connecting users directly over free, fast, unlicensed spectrum without the complete reliance on middlemen such as ISPs and telecom providers.
- By integrating its mesh technology with the blockchain and a cryptocurrency token, RightMesh will create a new generation of digital entrepreneurs who are able to sell their connectivity, on-device storage, processing power, sensor information, or any digital content they create.
- There are a lot of software applications that claim to be decentralized but rely on centralized infrastructure at the hardware level. RightMesh is the first truly decentralized network and platform that is actually p2p (peer-to-peer).
- RightMesh’s parent company, Left.io, is a multinational enterprise. Given funding from Left, we are able to put resources into traveling the world, participating in conferences and educating developers and people in the blockchain community about the need for increased connectivity and how RightMesh is making this possible.
