PlanetWatch Licenses on sale next week!

Dear PlanetWatchers,

As announced in a recent blog post, we’ve come up with a new system to help you get sensors faster and easier. You’ll be able to buy sensors approved by PlanetWatch from wherever you like.

Today we’re excited to unveil the pricing model for the licenses and announce a partnership with the maker of Atmotube PRO, our approved Type 4 sensor, who’s offering a big discount for your purchases! Don’t miss out and keep reading this post till the very end…

But first, let’s recap:

PlanetWatch uses four types of air quality sensors:

  • Types 1 and 2 are outdoor devices designed for research and private use respectively, 
  • Type 3 refers to indoor devices, 
  • Type 4 stands for wearables and other special devices. 

For each type, we’ve identified devices which strike a good balance between price and performance. You can connect the approved devices to the PlanetWatch network and earn token rewards in return for data. This list of approved sensors is bound to grow in the future as we continuously keep an eye for you on the sensor market.

So, here we go with the first formal announcement: 

From now on, approved sensors must be linked to an active PlanetWatch license in order to connect to our network and earn rewards. If you got a Sensor from PlanetWatch before today you’ll get a free, perpetual license.

License prices and promotions

Please note that French VAT may be added to your purchase depending on where you live and whether or not you’re a corporate entity or not.

The above prices will apply until the Planet token is listed on the first exchange. Afterwards, prices may be subject to change and the token promotion will be withdrawn. 

We’ll be opening online license sales next week. Initially, we’ll accept FIAT money (Euro and USD), stable coins (eEUR and UDSC on the Algorand blockchain) and Algos.

As soon as the Planet token gets listed, we’ll open up to Planet payments too.   

Please note the following important points:

  • The License validity period starts when the license is first linked to a sensor. You can buy your license at any time, even before you get your sensor, as the counter won’t start until you link it to your sensor.
  • For the time being, all licenses are non-transferable, i.e. once you link it to a specific sensor, it can’t be used later on for a different one.

Finally, we recommend that you don’t trade sensors after they’ve been linked to an Algorand account and to a PlanetWatch license. If you do, you might be in breach of governmental regulations (some sensors are certified for use only in specific regions of the world). Also, Planet earnings won’t automatically follow sensor ownership transfers as earnings are tied to Algorand wallets and licenses. In the future we might be able to set up a secure sensor ownership transfer process, so stay tuned for any updates.
