Quick Summary

155 Investors read this

Athero aims to improve commerce by combining the Internet of Things and blockchain technology. Athero incorporates a distributed operating system with an open blockchain, using virtual business-to-business networks and a consensus algorithm to realize better offline solutions for information flow and product sourcing needs.


  • Athero aims to allow people to easily write decentralized applications. This intention could enable innovation on the blockchain that could help distinguish the project.
  • The WiFi-ready Solar Smart Bench Network, Smart Car Parking Technology, and air and pollution smart sensors are products that will likely be of use to potential blockchain users.

  • Cons

  • The project as a whole is not doing anything that is particularly unique.
  • The success of the project will likely rely on the dApps that are developed on the blockchain. However, there is not much incentive to develop dApps on Athero’s blockchain as opposed to Ethereum’s.
