On April 5th, we introduced the Hivemapper Dashcam. More than 40 media outlets covered the pre-order launch of the world’s first crypto miner dashcam. If you missed it, read this blog post
and take a look at the pre-order launch summary
Today, we announced the Hivemapper Dashcam S at the Permissionless conference in Palm Beach, FL. It’s like the original Hivemapper Dashcam but with additional security features.
Why is Hivemapper building a second dashcam?
First, whether you pre-order the Hivemapper Dashcam or the Hivemapper Dashcam S, you will earn HONEY tokens. One is not better than the other in this regard.
The existing market for dashcams is large and diverse. There are ample opportunities to build new and innovative dashcams that satisfy the needs of drivers while also enabling them to contribute to the mapping network and earn HONEY tokens.
Over time, there will be dashcams built for the Hivemapper network that are designed for:
*Motorcycles and bikes are not supported on the mapping network today, but I hope they will ultimately be supported
This choice and diversity of dashcams is critical to scaling the mapping network’s contributor base to millions of drivers all over the world from big cities to small towns.
We will build and sell some of these dashcams, but the vast majority will be built by hardware partners building with support for the mapping network and in compliance with the Open Dashcam specifications
If you are eager to begin mapping and earning HONEY on the network; the most important thing is to get a dashcam and pre-order it sooner rather than later. We will ship to you based on when you pre-order. First to pre-order, first to ship, first to map.
