Algorand Platform Partners With PlanetWatch To Test the World’s First Air Quality Ledger
January 27, 2020

PlanetWatch partners with research firm Algorand blockchain to test the world’s first air quality ledger.

On Jan. 24 an announcement was made stating the battle-testing of air quality monitors linked to research firm Algorand’s blockchain. According to a PlanetWatch post on Jan. 23, the current state of air monitoring is unresponsive to today’s needs. Large government stations occur are available in cities and transport hubs. Data might not be released for a whole day. Yet poor air quality poses dire health issues, especially for children — infant mortality, asthma, neurodevelopmental disorders, and childhood cancers, according to PlanetWatch.

Algorand’s Keli Callaghan, VP of marketing adds:

“It is currently operating in several Italian cities (fixed installations and mobile ones on trolleys and buses), plus a long-term installation test in the Arctic.”

The goal for the partnership is “a global network of air quality sensors and environmentally-conscious people.” The sensors can be installed in private homes or even carried on one’s person, which allows data to be uploaded in real-time.

PlanetWatch founder Claudio Parrinello, a former research scientist adds:

“The sensors have been thoroughly tested and the data is publically available.”

The sensors collect data using Boston-based Algorand’s blockchain, “creating the first global, open, immutable $225 historical air quality repository.” The validated data will then be transcribed onto the blockchain. This database will then be readable to all users. Sensor owners will receive PLANET tokens in exchange for collecting data.

PlanetWatch is reportedly in talks with institutional investors about where the token will function. “Ultimately,” Parrinello said, “streaming air quality data to PlanetWatch will be the main mechanism to get PLANET tokens. Sensing is mining!”
