People-Powered Network

Start a Wireless Revolution Powered by the Helium Blockchain, The People’s Network represents a paradigm shift for decentralized wireless infrastructure.


Mine Crypto with Radio

The People's Network is powered by an entirely new incentive model made possible by the Helium Blockchain. Hotspots comunicate with other Hotspots and pariticipating in Mining process also data transfer.

A New Kind of Crypto Miner

Mining HNT is done by installing a simple device on your office window home or House . That’s it. Seriously.

Hotspots provide miles of wireless network coverage for millions of devices around you using Helium LongFi, and you are rewarded in HNT for doing this. And because of an innovative proof-of-work model (we call it “Proof-of-Coverage”), your Hotspot only uses 5W of energy.

One Hotspot and his mining rewards: 

As you see there is already many Hotspots deployed in specific area.


Each of them are trying to connect to neighbor Hotspots, transfer the data and participate in chalanges, as you can see more connections means more earnings in HNT.  


Checking one of the Hotspots you can observe Mining Rewards(HNTs) per Day, Month and Year.

You can calculate mined HNT price. 
With Official widget HNT To USD provided below by CoinGecko. 
Average price of 1 HNT is 7$ right now.

How do I earn HNT?

Participants earn HNT by mining and building coverage for The People’s Network using compatible Hotspots.

A World of Hotspots

Below are the Hotspot models that have so far been approved by the community and tested by Helium.Following hotspots are recomended to make future Antena Upgrades. 

You can buy Your Hotspot on official Pages:

We use one of the best Hotspot from Company Nebra(Sold out) And RAK
They have Indoor and Outdoor ones, with PoE support and antenna Upgrade posibilities, 

This is only our opinion on the HW part, so you can go with different vendors also. 


How are Tokens Earned?

Hotspots earn HNT for building and securing network infrastructure and transferring device data.

The amount of HNT distributed to Hotspots depends on the type of “work” they perform based on the value to the network. This validation of network contribution is accomplished by a new work algorithm called Proof-of-Coverage (PoC).

To participate in PoC, Hotspots receive instructions (or 'challenges') to transmit payloads to any nearby Hotspots to witness and verify. These single-hop challenges are also known as 'beacons'. Hotspots without neighbors earn less as they can only issue Challenges, and are unable to have their beacons verified. After the first year, distribution amounts adjust.


How Challanges are paid, amount of HNT mined by Your Hotspot 

1.CHALLENGERS: 0.95%

Hotspots are chosen by the network to issue challenges, encrypted messages over the Internet, to a target group of Hotspots. Challenges are used by Proof-of-Coverage to validate wireless coverage. Hotspots can issue challenges from any location, not just to local Hotspots.

2.PROOF-OF-COVERAGE: 5.31%

Hotspots earn a share of HNT for participating in Proof-of-Coverage and validating their peer’s wireless coverage. The amount each Hotspot earns depends on how often it is directly involved in Proof-of-Coverage activity.

3.WITNESSES: 21.24%

Hotspots that monitor and report Proof-of-Coverage activity (beacons) of other Hotspots receive a portion of HNT depending on how much activity they’ve witnessed, and the reward scaling of the Challengee.

4.NETWORK DATA TRANSFER: 32.5%

HNT is distributed to Hotspots that transferred data from devices on the network. The amount of HNT is allocated proportionally based on the amount of data a Hotspot transferred.

5.CONSENSUS GROUP: 6%

Hotspots are randomly elected to the Consensus Group to perform tasks including validating transactions and publishing new blocks to the blockchain. Group members receive a portion of the 6% distributed to the Consensus Group.


Frequently asked Questions / Clarification and useful Links

  • Where can I buy Hotspots ?
  • As we mentioned Nebra And RAK company providing 2 types of Miners Indoor and Outdoor, they have good support and accepting to make order also in HNT. Nebra and RAK can Ship Worldwide. 


To buy your Hotspot Visit Oficial Nebra Page: Link

You have 2 Options Indoor or Outdoor, you have to select which is the best for your case, both are mining same way so no difference.

  • Average Minings in HNT ?
All depends your location, Hotspot stability/avaiability and number of witnesses around you, because main % you earn from mining is provided from Chalanges Hotspot is part of.
To have a idea, right now the statistic is:

  • 3-5  Witnesses >250HNT  per month
  • 5-15 Witnesses >650HNT  per month 
  • 15<  Witnesses >1100HNT per month
Always try to have all chalanges done to get better scale, to get more mining rewards, 1.0 is the best Scale you can get. 



To get better scale please be aware thet this depends directlly to Hotspot position. You can check Helium.place to calculate better spot hor your new hotspot. 


you can check powerfull tool (SiteBot) provided by Helium, to see per state, city witch Hotspots are mining more: Link



  • What is the HNT (Helium Coin) Price ?

As all Crypto coins, HNT price is dynamic, please check it on CoinGecko widget to see actual price of 1 HNT Coin. 




  • How the easy is to set up Helium Miner? 
This is one of the easiest tasks, it should be done with Helium APP, you can find it in Apple Store, or Google Play. 

Download app and just follow 3-4 step instructions. 

  • Where you can start mining ? 

Helium Network is avaiable WorldWide and you can check all online Hotspots on Map, so you can get idea if there is more Hotspots on your area. 

Helium Official Explore Map: Link


  • Frequency I have to use in my location ? 

Generally all main countries and regions have their own frequencies and Nebra provides it for EU / USA


If you need to get more detailed information regarding, please check following
 Link 
Were you can see Frequency per Country. 

  • How can I upgrade Hotspot Antenna if needed ? 

Depending your location and high, you may need to add more powerfull antenna on your GW. 





Some time its better to use lower dbi antena, but all depends your enviorement and geographical position. 

Magnetic Base with Cable for Indoor Hotspots: Link 

Please Note: There is Country base regulations on dbi, so before making any installation check Local requirements and restrictions.

  • Best Location to install Hotspots?

Main rule is to have Hotspot installed in elevated place with good high, also good visibility is +. 

If in your area you see Hotspots 300m-27Km you can easily reach them if you have Line of Sight. 



  • Is Signal Quality important ? 
  • You have to have some good parameters to get VALID witnesses or witness somone, there is oficial info were you can see signal VALID RSSI and SNR. 

    You can see this information in Explorer evey time you witness or do beacon. 

    If your comunication quality is Poor, this will be discarted and will not selected as VALID

Invalid one: 


  • How to install Outdoor Miner ? 

  • As Nebra Outdoor miner supports PoE (Power Over Ethernet) best way to install it is to use only one Ethernet cable.  
  • Always recommended to have ground cable installation. 
  • You can Use LMR400 Type Cable if you do not want to connect Antena directlly to the GW. 

  • How to convert Indoor Hotspot to Outdoor ?
  • Find IP67-Enclosure witch fits your needs.
  • Use the Board Base to fix GW and Power splitter Supply correctly. 
  • Try to organize all cables to have better air circulation. 
  • Use External Antena Connector and fix it on Enclosure. 
Check some good example: (Same can be done with Nebra Indoor GW.)

  • How to increase mining rewards?

  • Make sure Your Hotspot Have good Internet connectivity.
  • Make sure Your Hotspot is always Online.
  • Make sure you are using best antenna for your enviorement.

  • Which Cable/Connectors I have to use to connect Antenna to Hotspot.

For Indoor: RAK/Nebra have SMA Interfaece. So, You must use cable with RP-SMA Male to N Type Female connectors. 

For Outdoor: Nebra have N type connector interface, You can connect Glass Fiber Antenna directlly or use cable with N Type F-M connectors. . 

Cable: If you need to extend and connect Antenna on Outdoor area, maybe you need Coax cable for it, Always try to use good quality cable, at least use LMR400-600 type, better cable you use less Db loss you get.



Pole, Tripode: When you using external installation is very iprortant to Level correctlly Pole or Tripode, and avoid any loss of covarage, we recomend to use any device like: 

  • Can I Split the cable and use more than 1 Antenna ? 
Yes, you can do many things with it, but all depends on your area and would recommend to test it, as all this technology have Loss of dbi may be not worth to do. 
But we will explain how it can be done: you can decide if you want to try it. There are 2 Options : 
  • 1) You can use splitter device for coaxial cable: 
But as we mentioned all passive splitters have loss of dbi, here you can see table explaining some generic splitter losses on dbi: 
  • 2) You can use more basic setup, using directlly some bad quality cable with 1-IN 2-OUT connectors:  
(Sorry but we cann not provide exact DBi losses from this cable as manufactor do not indicate on especifications, but should same or worse then mentioned splitter device. 
Also we sharing some installation of this cable on one RAK Hotspot: 


  • How can I use PoE for Nebra Outdoor  ?
Nebra Outdoor hotspots have support of PoE (Power over ethernet), so you will need only PoE Injector to take Power and Internet till Hotspot. Both only with One Cable.

  • How can I make correct enclosure and use PoE for Indoor Hotspot ?
If you need to make same and use only 1 Cable to take Internet and Power till Hotspot, you will need at least two more additional device, PoE Injector and PoE Splitter. 


We made this basic, topology mentioning all needed material with Names to make more easy for you. 
There are 2 Options to make Antenna connection, 1st one is recommended as you use less cable and connectors so less Dbi Loss. 

This Guide can be used with RAK, only difference is on Power side, you will need Splitter with USB C Connector. 
We recommend to use good quality devices as every device you add Means "More Point of failure". 

  • If there is no one in my area, how much I will earn?

This is not the best you can do becouse you will earn 0,25 HNTs daily, but think about to get more than 3 Hotspots and extend it in your area.

also take in mind many people looking to install their Hotspots, so maybe you are not only one in your area. 


  • What happens if my GW stollen ?

GW have strong encryption, so its unique and cannot used for Other Wallets, only with your.

So, Hotspots cannot Reset, no one can use your Hotspot.

  • How to Transfer mined HNTs from Wallet to USD/EUR ? 

You can use several Crypto exchanges, our recomendation is to go with Binance or Binance US.


  • How many GB used per month by Active Hotspot?
This is something dynamic and depends how many witnesses your hotspot have. We saw numbers from 3-50 GB per Month, this is our experience.
    
  • Should I use Ground cable if i have any Exterior part ? 
This is something we recomend, if you have Outdoor Hotspot it has Ground connection, also antena can easily grounded in connector part. 


Or you can use Lightning Arrestor to make it more profesional way. 
In some countries per law requiered to Ground PoE adapter also, if so you can use PoE Injector with This capabilities. 
If you are looking for the best Grounding solution let us share one ! 

  • What use cases we can use in Helium Network ?

Hundreds of companies and thousands of developers are already building on The People’s Network, the world’s largest, and fastest growing LoRaWAN network.

Thousands of existing solutions, sensors, devices and gateways can be easily configured to run LongFi - a powerful blend of LoRaWAN and blockchain technologies.


You can check Semtech official page, there is a lot of LoRaWan Use cases 
detailed. 

We found Some Videos on Youtube where you can see Helium Console Dashboard from Cliente/developer side and also you will see how easy is to transfer data over Helium Network.
