Circulating Supply, Sensors Location & Custom Sensor Names

Circulating Supply, Sensors Location & Custom Sensor Names

Dear PlanetWatchers,

Following requests from the community and advice from partners, we are releasing some significant updates and new features in the PlanetWatch Explorer.

Updated Features

Circulating Supply

According to the CoinMarketCap and CoinGecko definition “Circulating Supply is the best approximation of the number of coins that are circulating in the market and in the general public’s hands.” Based on this definition, we have updated the PLANETS circulating supply figure, which now indicates the total  number of circulating tokens which are not held by PlanetWatch. This update will soon enable CoinMarketcap, CoinGecko, etc, to display PLANETS Market Cap figures!

Total number of Sensors

Previously, this figure was calculated as the total number of individual devices connected to the network. An update was needed for the following reasons:

  • Due to some problems with the Mobile App, in some cases sensors had been connected but not activated, resulting in “ghost” sensors. 
  • In other cases, sensors which have been banned following violations to our rules, were still counted in the network. 

Following the update, the figure for total number of sensors now accurately reflects the number of connected sensors which are actively contributing to the PlanetWatch network.

New Features

Top Holders

We have added In the Explorer homepage the list of the top 100 PLANETS holders. Are you on this list?

Update Sensors Location

In the My Sensors section users can now update location info for their sensors. You can easily do it by clicking the Update Location button. This will open a map. Click on the exact location where your sensor is located! We ask all PlanetWatchers who currently use PlanetWatch address (50 rue Gustave Eiffel, 01630 St. Genis-Pouilly, France) for their sensors to update their location as soon as possible. 

Note: If the location shown in the map doesn’t match the actual location of the sensor, just click on the actual location. Don’t worry if the street name does not match the correct one – only the GPS coordinates of the location matter here.

Custom Sensor Names

Last but not least, the icing on the cake: you can now assign nicknames to your sensors! To do this, click on one of your sensors. Then, in the sensor info card, click on the pencil. This will open a window where you can update the sensor name!

We hope that you will enjoy these new features. Keep watching the Planet!
