Helium’s plans in its migration to Solana

In preparation for its eventual migration to Solana in Q1 2023, the Helium Foundation is conducting Ask Me Anything (AMA) transition sessions with community members to come up with their plans for when Helium rolls out to Solana.

In the last AMA sessionThe Helium Foundation confirmed four important updates that Helium users will benefit from in the coming year.

It claimed that prior to the migration to Solana, its core development team was building the complex infrastructure for staking multipliers, delegating to subDAO, the Helium chain state, and services to support their smart contracts.

In addition, a new governance token known as Vote-escrowed HNT (veHNT) would be released to “drive Helium governance forward.” According to the Helium Foundation, “veHNT is not a token, but rather represents voting power” and would be delegable to Helium’s subDAOs.

To get voting power in Helium, users would have to stake their HNT tokens. The participation period would determine the multiplying effect on voting power. The Helium Foundation confirmed that “after the migration to Solana, anyone who wagers within the first 7 days will receive an additional 3X veHNT multiplier on their initial wager.”

Lastly, Helium Wallet users could use the same for token migration and hotspots on the network.
