An interesting article on TechCrunch about WeatherXM leveraging blockchain to improve weather forecasting! The idea of a community-powered network with crypto incentives for data collection is intriguing. This has me wondering if blockchain could revolutionize other areas like gardening or public transportation. Time to do some digging and see if I can build a fun project using an Arduino or Raspberry Pi – all thanks to the potential of blockchain! #Blockchain #Web3. Article details below.

Can blockchain make weather forecasts better? WeatherXM thinks so

Accurate weather forecasts are critical to industries like agriculture, and they’re also important to help prevent and mitigate harm from inclement weather events or natural disasters.
