Hello TM Fam,
I’ve been mining Helium (HNT) for awhile now with two hotspots. For a small network u need three so I ordered two RAK miners since Helium hotspots were sold out. Due to corona and other delays the RAK miners won’t be available until march of this year.
While researching LoFi miner antenna I learned about the MatchX 2 miner. The MatchX 2 works on LoFi like Helium except it has a longer reach (20km) and mines two coins Machine Xchange Coin (MXC) and Data Highway (DHX). MXC is a token under the Polkadot umbrella. It’s currently listed at $0.01 but once Polkadot launches expect it to gain value. DHX is not yet listed.
With Helium network HNT valued at $2.98 the more hotspots u have the more u earn. The drawback is, the hotspots all have to be 200m away from each other. With MatchX u can have up to five miners and they can be side by side. Aside from HNT and MXC I also mine XMR with an old laptop. If u didn’t know or forgot, Monero is one of the few coins u can still mine with a computer. My question is…Do u mine? If so which coin or token? What type of hardware miner? For those of u who mine HNT how much more do u earn with 3 hotspots?
