World Mobile, a trailblazer in technology-driven connectivity solutions, has launched an innovative aerostat trial in Mozambique in partnership with Vodacom Mozambique. The initiative marks a significant stride in World Mobile’s mission to connect remote and rural areas globally, identifying aerostats—tethered balloons equipped with telecommunications gear—as a promising solution for providing internet access to underserved communities. Micky Watkins, CEO of World Mobile, emphasized the potential of aerostats to unlock internet access for billions, citing their cost-effectiveness and rapid deployment as ideal for remote regions. Vodacom Mozambique’s pivotal role in the collaborative effort involves sharing spectrum and crucial resources, reflecting their commitment to innovation and connecting the unconnected.

The Mozambique trial represents more than a technological experiment; it symbolizes hope for numerous communities at the digital periphery. Success in the project could set the stage for similar initiatives across Africa and beyond, moving closer to a globally connected world. The trial, initiated in November, will run for a predetermined period to evaluate the effectiveness and sustainability of aerostat technology in real-world scenarios, showcasing the power of collaboration and innovation to address pressing challenges in connectivity.

Partnering for healthcare and connectivity in Africa

Africa is one of the world’s largest and most diversified continents, having various cultures and economies. While some African nations have had the good fortune to expand and maintain pace with other continents, others remain hindered in their development due to war or corruption.

Even with modern technology, hundreds of millions of people lack access to basic health records, and medical personnel often aren’t equipped with the necessary tools and technology to assist patients’ health requirements.

Africa is also the least-connected region in the world, with many regions underserved by legacy mobile networks and remote areas remaining unconnected entirely. Internet connectivity is crucial to economic empowerment, the establishment of digital identity, and unlocking the educational and financial opportunities offered by the global marketplace.

The deployment of blockchain-based solutions that solve connectivity and healthcare data management problems in Africa has the potential to drastically improve the lives of people in underconnected or underserved regions. The partnership between World Mobile and Immunify.Life aims to address these issues while creating a synergistic ecosystem of applications that deliver crucial services to these areas.

“World Mobile’s offering of blockchain-powered connectivity and our healthcare data management solution creates room for interesting symbiosis. Since we are both working in developing nations, there are plenty of areas where we can collaborate. This partnership will open doors for mutual support for country implementations where possible.”

— Guy Newing, Immunify.Life Founder

“We are delighted to be partnering with Immunify.Life to help bring healthcare data management solutions that will improve medical outcomes to the regions that need it most. Immunify.Life share our vision for a world where everyone has access to the services and opportunities they deserve, regardless of where they are. Nearly 3 billion people around the world are unconnected, and World Mobile’s mission to provide affordable and efficient connectivity delivers the key to unlocking exciting new opportunities for education, finance, healthcare, and so much more.”

— Micky Watkins, World Mobile Co-Founder and CEO

World Mobile Token partners with Genius Yield to boost DeFi adoption

World Mobile Token (WMT) has partnered with Cardano-based DeFi protocol Genius Yield to fast-track the adoption of decentralised finance (DeFi) on the Cardano blockchain.

WMT is the utility token build on Cardano that powers the sharing economy of the global World Mobile network. Transactions generated and processed on the World Mobile network earn rewards for stakers and node operators paid in WMT. WMT token holders are able to earn rewards by holding their tokens in a Cardano wallet and staking through the WMT Vault. Holders of WMT can also stake in fixed pools through the Genius DEX’s staking feature.

The partnership will see both companies work together to improve access to financial education and bring practical DeFi use cases to everyday users. World Mobile Token and Genius Yield will support each other’s tokens in their respective protocols, boosting token liquidity and improving interoperability.

As part of this collaboration, World Mobile Token will support Genius Yield’s liquidity pools in the Genius DEX and Smart Liquidity Vault, also known as the Yield Optimizer, which is powered by artificial intelligence and is built on top of the Genius DEX.

Genius Yield will set up and provide early access to the Smart Order Router, an off-chain order matching bot, for WMT and will also operate an EarthNode. EarthNodes are the heartbeat of the World Mobile network, processing and securing transactions on the World Mobile Chain while earning their operators rewards for their role at the core of the WMT ecosystem.

In addition, Genius Yield and World Mobile Token have collaborated to design and mint 2,000 utility NFTs.

The 2,000 NFTs will be distributed as follows:

  • 1,000 NFTs will be airdropped to the World Mobile Token community and EarthNode Operators
  • 1,000 NFTs will be distributed to the Genius Yield community

Holders who opt to stake their NFTs together with WMT via the Genius DEX will receive higher yields. NFT holders will get early access to VIP areas or native World Mobile app features. They will also receive a 25% discount from the one-year-long paid blockchain course offered by Genius Academy from Q2 2023.

Genius Academy equips readers with the necessary toolsets by availing in-depth articles for users to better grasp the increasingly sophisticated and dynamic crypto and DeFi ecosystems. It has partnered with PSL university and onboarded top crypto and blockchain experts to deliver comprehensive, high-quality education on these topics.
