Miami Becomes First U.S. City To Deploy Air Quality Monitoring Network Based On Algorand (ALGO) Blockchain

Miami becomes the first main U.S. city to introduce a decentralized indoor and outdoor air-quality monitoring network built on the Algorand blockchain.

Miami authorities will install a network of sensors to assess the city’s air quality. A sensors system based on the Algorand blockchain is being developed by the French company PlanetWatch.


PlanetWatch has developed five types of sensors. Each sensor detects the intensity of air pollution in an area. When linked into a network, they will benefit residents and city officials by analyzing where pollution levels are highest. The data collected by the sensors will be recorded on the Algorand blockchain, making it tamper-proof and permanent.

Miami Mayor Suarez commented:

“We are thrilled that PlanetWatch has selected Miami as the first US city in which they will deploy a network of air quality sensors. Miami is striving to become a green city through policies like the ‘Miami Forever Climate Ready’ initiative, and it is hugely exciting that innovators like PlanetWatch and Algorand are coming here to implement major sustainable technology in the US. Algorand is a carbon-negative blockchain, and the data from this project will play a crucial role in our climate adaptation efforts as well as our ambitions to make Miami an epicenter for digital capital markets.”
