A Governance Vote just went live to propose a change on Type 2 sensor rewards. You will be able to vote until July 29 at 11 am CET.
We are proposing to implement a permanent 100% increase for the max rewards per stream for Type 2 sensors. This would affect leading and backup Type 2 sensors in Tier 1 and Tier 2 pixels.
The table below depicts what the proposed change would look like in practice:
|Why are we proposing this change|
Following the release of our API, now is the time to speed up our outdoor coverage of key cities worldwide. The goal is to quickly increase sensor density, ensuring that our air quality data are truly “hyperlocal”, enabling the detection of localized pollution hotspots.
“Hyperlocality” is a key differentiator between our data offer and alternative products, which lack a hyperlocal sensor network and rely on algorithmic interpolation between data points from sparse sensors.
Type 2 devices are affordable and deliver important data on PM 2.5 and PM 10, so they are the perfect complement to Type 1 devices. By doubling the Planets reward rate for Type 2 sensors, we aim to boost their deployment and achieve “hyperlocality” faster.
You will have two options for this governance vote:
A: Yes, I support the PlanetWatch proposal for a permanent 100% increase for the max rewards per stream for Type 2 sensors.
B: No, I do not support the PlanetWatch proposal for a permanent 100% increase for the max rewards per stream for Type 2 sensors.
