About

WeatherXM is a community-powered weather network that rewards weather station owners and provides accurate weather services to weather-sensitive industries & Web3 enterprises. WeatherXM is a Decentralized Physical Infrastructure Network (DePIN). Participants install their own weather stations, contribute data and get rewarded in $WXM, the network’s token. Since launching in 2022, WeatherXM has deployed more than 5,000 stations in more than 80 countries across the globe. Our weather stations are the world’s first to natively support Web3 technologies.

WeatherXM has deployed more than 5k stations in over 80 countries, with the goal of creating the largest decentralized weather network. To support this, we developed the Explorer, a web app that let's you discover all weather stations deployed worldwide and view real-time weather conditions. We'd love to see you enhance our Explorer. To kick things off, we prepared ideas to give you a sense of direction. Feel free to use them, or just come up with your own: 1. Weather Layers: - Use our public API to make the explorer display more weather data such as temperature, precipitation, and wind heat map layer (e.g. like windy.com). 2. Decentralized Cell Bounty: - Create a decentralized tool to incentivize station deployments in specific cells (areas with no stations). - Users can connect their wallet, add a bounty (in tokens) for a particular cell, and once a station is deployed in that cell, the station owner can claim the bounty. 3. Cell Modelling Information: - Enable the explorer to display all cells, including non-active ones (cells with no stations). - Show cell-modelling and capacity-related information for each cell. - Introduce a cell ranking system where each station within a cell is ranked based on their latest rewards. 4. Come up with your own idea: - Experiment with our repos or data, come up with any idea and create something out of the box, without building on top of the explorer. Top 3 teams will also receive a WeatherXM weather station! Best of luck!
