Powering a peer-to-peer network for                electricity access
An overview of the technology that powers the Tungsten Network. For more in depth calculations and explanations, check out the whitepaper. The Tungsten solution consists of a few different components: Sending/Receiving Pylons and Relays for long distance transmission, antennas for short distance transmission, and the Tungsten Network as a secure way to exchange money and align incentives.
Pylons & Relays
Tall structures similar to those used for wired transmission will serve as sending pylons. Connected to a power source and an adjustable rotating top, they can send electricity up to 30km to the nearest relay with minimal loss to give electricity access over long distances.
To receive waves to convert into electricity, one receiving pylon may be set up to serve a larger community. With a rotating top, they can catch radio waves from different directions to provide access to electricity in remote areas.
Antennas and the Tungsten Network
Antennas will be used to get electricity from the receiving pylons to individual houses. With lower energy capacities and adjustable heights, they can be smaller devices planted on top of individual homes to enable users to send electricity to within the network and receive electricity from the main receiving pylons.
The Tungsten network will connect devices on a network allowing them to communicate and effectively route electricity from point A to point B. The network is designed to reward early adopters of the technology by rewarding users with antennas for growing the network and contributing to electricity access for all. The inherent nature of the network allows power suppliers to be paid easily, users to become suppliers, and people to receive and pay for their electricity in a trustless and reliable manner.
