How are tokens HNT earned?
On the Helium Network, gateway earns HNT in two different ways: Proof of Coverage and Network Data Transfer
- Proof-of-Coverage （PoC)
You are rewarded for participating in, witnessing and creating Proof-of-Coverage challenges. You can read more about the mechanics of PoC on the Helium website. https://docs.helium.com/blockchain/proof-of-coverage/
- Network Data Transfer
You are rewarded for providing LoRa Network service and transmitting data packets to the Internet.
Suggestions for increasing HNT earning:
- Ensure stable power supply and avoid sudden interruption of power out.
- A fast and stable network that is not relayed. The public IP used by the hotspot must be fixed IP. It cannot change frequently. Network conditions can be detected at https://app.heliumstatus.io/. Use the network cable and forget about the WIFI function. Please refer to how do I deal with Hotspot relay?
- Check the density and number of surrounding hotspots and choose the optimal setup location. Please refer to where should COTX X3 be installed?
- The antenna should be set higher than surrounding buildings to prevent the RF signal from being blocked. Please refer to where should COTX X3 be installed？
