BlockMesh Development Update — May 2020
It’s time, the update you’ve all been patiently waiting for…
The #Meshies have to be one of the most active crypto-communities out there, and we’re so grateful. Having stuck with us through thick and thin we’re happy to announce some very positive news — we’ve started app development!
Many have asked about what’s been going on behind the scenes at BlockMesh and if you’re in the Telegram group and have been following us on Twitter, you’ll know this dev update has been a long time coming, so we’re happy to finally be able to announce our focus on our software development and timelines.
The development next steps:
To us, it’s important to get as many people as possible to learn about BMH, its mesh network and chat app, and to build trust in it. So, we’re taking the next steps in rolling out our mesh chat app for iOS and Android smart devices by having recently kicked off our development.
Our software development partner is a market leader in providing custom web and mobile solutions, and they’re locally-based too — this is something very important to us as we strive to build up other South African companies. They have built a rock-solid reputation in the app development community for providing excellent development and consulting services to a vast array of clients.
Scope Outline and Deliverables
We are undergoing the development of iOS and Android mobile applications that use and create mesh networks with surrounding smart devices to send messages and data to one another, both on- and offline.
By using a Bluetooth enabled mesh network data is passed between devices without cell reception, data or WiFi. However, we will enable the ability to connect with other users via these systems should you be in range.

Our combination of software (Phase 1), hardware (Phase 2), and blockchain (Phase 3), as well as our ability to act in an area that needs these solutions the most — Africa — is driving this product offering.
We’re looking forward to completing the Phase 1 chapter of the BlockMesh story and appreciate your support in helping us to achieve our goals.
