Nodle is a wireless network connecting and securing the next trillion Internet of Things (IoT) using smartphones and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE).

Nodle is privacy and security focused,100% software-based and efficiently uses existing physical infrastructure, which is both more cost-effective and eco-friendly.
This is the network that is created by users like you, who downloaded our app. Learn more here: https://thecitizennetwork.com
All you have to do is create a username, password, turn on Bluetooth in your phone’s settings and start earning Nodle Cash. It’s that simple. Nodle Video
You earn Nodle Cash when your phone connects and collects data from IoT devices and sensors using Bluetooth Low Energy. The information is then sent back to the owner of the IoT device. Your personal data is not shared with the owner.
To better understand, there are increasingly more and more IoT devices with sensors all around us which need to transfer data back to their owners, but only have Bluetooth radios in them (e.g. no WiFi or LTE). The Nodle Cash app uses the Bluetooth radio in your phone to connect to these IoT devices as you walk by and securely transfers the IoT data from Bluetooth to LTE to whatever company owns the IoT device (e.g. e-Scooter, pet with a tracking device, cargo with a sensor). The app tracks how much data your phone transfers for the IoT device(s) and awards your account with Nodle Cash accordingly. The amount of each award is dependent on many variables such as: quality of the connection, how much data is transferred, 'value' of the IoT device in question, and more.
We will be adding more features in the future, so thank you for your patience–exciting times ahead!
Eco: The app will run as long as it’s open. You may earn less or find fewer IoT devices nearby than in Expert Mode, but it’s more resource-friendly.
Expert: For power users who want the best performance (earn more Nodle Cash) and fully contribute to The Citizen Network, unlike Eco Mode, Expert Mode forces the app to run in the system’s foreground. The only drawback is that it’s less resource-friendly.
Nodle Cash in Eco Mode is designed to use 1-3% of a smartphone battery per 24 hours. This varies due to Smartphone version, Android system version, BLE chipset manufacturer, BLE chipset firmware version, and the number of nearby IoT devices. We are working hard to optimize our application.
Simply turning off Bluetooth in your phone settings stops Nodle Cash from scanning in the background. Our app is specially designed to run at all times in the background without impacting user experience.
Yes, just backup your 12 character public key in the settings section.
Your address is generated from your public key, it can be shared with people so they can send you some Nodle Cash, this is similar to the address of your home when people want to send you some letters. A public key is part of some cryptographic material called a “key pair” (like the keys you have in your pocket) that can be used to send transactions to the network (like when you open a locked box to access a secret).
Nodle Cash is a reward we use to incentivize participation in The Citizen Network. We’re working hard to bring more value to it. (scroll below for more on Nodle Cash)
