Mycelium deploys Wireless Communication Networks on the Blockchain here in Northwest Arkansas

About this Episode: 

Everyone is talking about Cryptocurrency and the Blockchain, and there are more questions than answers when it comes to an understanding of the asset and technology and how it works. 

We are taking our time to learn as much as we can about Crypto and Blockchain, how it has already impacted our lives, and what the future looks like. 

We connected with the folks at Mycelium Networks who are building a robust decentralized network on top of the Helium platform. Anyone can use this decentralized network for various reasons and purposes to communicate and transfer information from one individual or organization to another.  

We sit down with Rishi Mittal, the founder of Mycelium Networks, to learn why they put their company stake in the ground here in Northwest Arkansas and what he hopes to accomplish with his company in our region and beyond. 

Learn more about IoT networks and how all of us can play a part in expanding this decentralized network, and how it might benefit us in the future. 
We discuss NFT’s as well, although we are planning a future episode to discuss the growth of Non Fungible Tokens and why you should care about them.

All this and more on this episode of I am Northwest Arkansas.

Signature Bank of Arkansas –  

Signature Bank was founded here in Northwest Arkansas in 2005. Their focus is personal and community banking. When you bank with a community bank, you’re investing in local businesses, local entrepreneurs, local charities, and the causes close to home. Signature Bank has worked hard to earn its tagline, “Community Banking at its Best.”

You may ask why bank at Signature? 

Because they focus on the customer instead of having a branch on every corner, this means you can have your questions answered by a real person, whether you’re reaching out to the call center or your banker’s cell phone. You can access any ATM in the country without fear of a fee.  They will refund all of those fees at the end of every month. Finally, they are constantly improving their digital offerings to ensure you can access the best financial tools from your laptop, phone, or tablet 24 hours a day.

Signature Bank of Arkansas is a full-service bank offering traditional checking and savings accounts, investment accounts, business and personal loans, and mortgages.
