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:

  1. Ensure stable power supply and avoid sudden interruption of power out.
  2. 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?
  3.  Check the density and number of surrounding hotspots and choose the optimal setup location. Please refer to where should COTX X3 be installed?
  4. 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?
