The word Sentinel means literally, "a person whose job is to stand and keep watch". In the XYO Network, sentinels are location witnesses that can record the data in the physical world, and save it to a cryptographic ledger. They can observe heuristics, like location, temperature, elevation, wind speed, etc!
Because a SentinelX can collect different kinds of data, there's a lot of use cases for it! For example, imagine a smart car that can report traffic increases, or current speeds on the highway! A smart watch that could report human heart rates in a certain location, or a shipping container that can detect the temperature of the goods inside it. Maybe even a drone that can tell you the elevation of the pizza it’s delivering. There’s a lot of data out there, and we just need to make devices XYO-enabled so all that data can be verified, trusted, and delivered when someone needs to keep a more informed eye on their products.
Note: You can always make an account later, even if you decide at first to play without one.
To begin geomining and earning digital assets, click the pickaxe button at the bottom of your screen. As long as your quadtile (section) has not been geomined yet, you’ll see your XYO Token counter at the top of the map increase.
If you did not earn XYO Tokens, it may be because that quadtile has already been geomined. You can see already geomined quadtiles through the color difference on the map.
If the following is true, you can withdraw your digital assets and store them in an external wallet:
