Roam Launches on the Solana Mobile and Crosses 100,000 Daily Check-Ins


Roam, a leader in the DePIN (Decentralized Physical Infrastructure Network) sector, has announced its integration into Solana Mobile’s Saga phone, marking a significant milestone in its mission to build a global WiFi roaming network. Roam is the first project to offer secure WiFi connections to all users by integrating decentralized identifiers (DIDs) and verifiable credentials (VCs) into OpenRoaming™. This innovative approach enhances global WiFi accessibility and security by eliminating the need for SSIDs, passwords, and login credentials.

Roam represents a pioneering protocol that empowers users to seamlessly traverse public WiFi

networks using their decentralized identifiers (DIDs) and corresponding verifiable credentials

(VCs). By doing so, it establishes a unified global WiFi OpenRoaming network, seamlessly interlinking distinct WiFi networks. 

This approach eliminates the tiresome cycle of repeated log-ins, reconnecting, password sharing, and redundant registrations that users currently contend with during local or international travels. The VC/DID-based Web3.0 WiFi credential is Roam’s secret sauce. It allows token incentivization to kick off the flywheel whose logic governs the deployment and expansion of the worldwide decentralized wireless access network, yielding invaluable “3W” data – detailing Who is connecting, When, and Where.

The integration of Roam heralds the streamlined adoption of cutting-edge Passpoint TM and OpenRoaming TM technologies. Originally conceived by the global WiFi industry for enterprise use, these technologies are poised to assume a pivotal role in the 5G rollout and the alleviation of cellular traffic. Roam strategically enhances adoption across three key dimensions: optimizing the service provisioning process, reducing deployment obstacles, and broadening the user base.

Crucially, the Roam network harmonizes with stringent privacy protocols and regulatory

standards, cultivating an environment conducive to the proliferation of Web3.0 native

applications and users.

A Growing Ecosystem

Roam’s ecosystem is built around Roam Points and $ROAM, incentivizing users to contribute to network development by adding WiFi, checking in, and referring friends. The network has grown rapidly, amassing over 3.5 million WiFi spots and serving over 350,000 app users across 140+ countries.

New Milestones

Recently, the Roam app achieved a significant milestone, surpassing 100,000 daily check-ins and adding 300,000 network nodes by the community. This achievement not only showcases the app’s practical use but also reflects the enthusiasm of its users and their belief in the project’s future.

Roam on Solana Mobile’s Saga Phone

Sharing a vision centered on security, ease of use, and seamless Web3 integration, Roam launched their app on the Solana Saga phone’s dApp store. The Saga phone, known for its premium hardware and clean Android experience, offers a comprehensive dApp store for the Roam app. The first model of the Solana Mobile has sold out, and the upcoming edition has already received 140,000 pre-orders from crypto investors and traders. By being available on the dApp store, the Roam app will provide faster load times and superior connectivity, enhancing the user experience and bridging the gap between Web3 and everyday technology.

Looking Forward

With the launch of the app on Solana Mobile’s Saga phone, Roam aims to further its mission of revolutionizing how people connect. This development is a significant step towards creating a more decentralized, accessible, and free WiFi roaming network for all app users.

About Roam

Roam transforms internet access with a decentralized network and OpenRoaming™, connecting you seamlessly to over 3.5 million OpenRoaming™ WiFi access points. It simplifies connectivity, enhances security, and rewards every connection via its proprietary DID solution. Roam permits the capture and utilization of rich user data (who, what, where) while promising the anonymity of decentralized IDs to permit data incentivization without compromising user identity.
