Michael Herman (Toronto)
Founder at Orbis Communications
Bluetooth mesh networks have diverse applications ranging from its numerous commercial IoT applications such as smart manufacturing, smart homes, automation, and peer networking. Individual consumers and developers however remain locked out of this lucrative market. The Orbis platform aims to establish a platform for both consumer and commercial developments in Bluetooth mesh by establishing pre-existing infrastructure and network for developers to deploy onto. The Orbis Token (OBT) will also be used initially to reward developers for successful releases as well as consumers for simply participating.
Jason is the author of the founding Orbis whitepaper and passionate about bringing his vision of consumer level mesh networking to fruition. Jason funded the initial development of Orbis with returns from early investments to conduct a successful presale. Though young, Jason seeks to grow his platform in the cryptocurrency community and aims to disrupt the wireless communications industry.
