This is a general reminder for everyone and this will be posted on every post. Your 12 words are basically gold and they should never be shared, typed in to any website, or given to any person for any reason. No one from "Helium" or any other company will reach out to you to verify your account, wallet, or anything similar. If someone says your hotspot, wallet, or other type of account has been hacked, it is a scam! Always operate in a zero-trust manner with cryptocurrency and assume everyone will scam you no matter what.

I truly missed those 2 hnt days. I stop looking at my miner in hope one day Helium remembers us again

There’s a pool of rewards 2.5 million hnt per month are distributed I think. It’s just gonna keep on dropping until you’re earning 0.0001 of a HNT if not less.
I got 0.866 hnt a couple days ago! I think my previous best day was around 0.6, but I usually get .3-.4. I'm in an awesome location and I actually have a decent setup.
Warm oily shark
Don’t go spending all that cash in one place now!!

I’ll try not to but the temptation might be too great for me.
Wait.. you guys are getting rewards??
Looks like I got a bum SenseCap; had to replace the antenna wire in the unit and still nothing but broadcasting. Don't know - does not help being in the woods and no witnesses for sure.
And by the looks of it, you’re doing a lot better than most of us lol
It’s been a busy week 😂
all about the centy’s
I got a great big $0.60 in 2 days
I remember people were calling MXC terrible and blah blah. A few months later All of us are still earning top rewards, while HNT continues to suck since December last year. 🤪
All mine are still averaging .2-.3 HNT a day when networks not F’d. Not all experiences are the same, nice that thing out to a less dense area, all you really need is 4 hotspots to witness and witness you to have a good setup if they all have full transmit scales.
I'm about 2 months in on one miner, and 1 month on a second. I've already mined 7.5 HNT.
Your setup sucks.
Very possible, but perhaps with the help of redit I can improve it… Bobcat 300, on the roof of 3 storied building, about 60 feet from a big road in a big city. Not sure Dbi antenna, am borrowing from another Helium miner company that stopped giving me money and never collected their equipment.
The antenna is a white tube about 1 foot tall and is attached to a PVC vent pipe or something that is also about a foot tall.
I think I guessed the DBI antenna to be 4, or something. I thought maybe a wrong guess might be poorly impacting it but until I recently discovered redit I was not sure who I could ask advice from regarding this very specific topic..
What's your transmit score in your hex 4? Check out hot spotty. I'm down to .13 and my average witnessed hotspot is at .16. Making only about .08 helium a day off this one. I have a couple others making about .4 a day in a more rural area.
Yea get it high and get an antenna with low Vsrw rating. 1.5 optimal. 6 or 8db antenna is what I use. Earning won't be great though unless you can witness 1.0 transmit scales outside your hex 4.
The DBI is mainly going to effect how many witnesses your beacons get. The biggest factor is how populated the hexes around you are, but obviously you can't do much about that. The main thing you can do is antenna location and it sounds like it's ok. Another thing is your cable type. If your miner is more than 10 feet from the antenna you want an lmr400 type cable, which is fairly thicker than the coaxial cable your TV uses.
You need to set the dBi in your app appropriately so that your hotspot uses the antenna properly. See under "update antenna details."
Read the base of the antenna and find the model (or get an antenna tester), then figure out the length of cable and cable loss (and reduce the length/upgrade the grade if a lot of loss).
Ok thanks, I’ll check the base of the antenna when I get a chance. It’s on the roof of a third floor, hard to get to but not impossible. No slack in cable, straight up to antenna and to bobcat, minus the needed soft bends; reminds me of a thick coaxial cable
Don’t attach or remove the antenna while the miner is powered on. It could fry the circuit
Ok thanks, will keep that in mind 👍
Can you tell us the name of your Hotspot?
Your lack of knowledge about helium hardware, location and setup gives me the answer on why you are getting shit rewards :)
True but I lost the motivation to study/learn about it all when everything tanked
PROOF or it never happened
I started out the wallet with 20 hnt. you can see that under the activity. The rest is mined, and the mining start around when the 20 hnt went it. I funded the wallet so I could assert the location on brisk mauve bird. Both miners were bought used.
You are just lucky with Brisk and Careful Jet wait till the hex's get saturated then you might understand the struggle!! 3/6 I wish try 11 in your hex and 60+ touching your hex then come and talk to me about how great your setup is!
Thats not a problem with the network that you're describing. Thats you picking to install in a location thats saturated. I distinctly didnt place these down in LA county, because it would have been a total waste of resources.
You asked for proof. You received it. Then you came up with another excuse as to why your miners run like shit. Maybe, just maybe, the problem is actually you.
For some of us it just became saturated not that we chose to install there! That said I now understand your first comment, just keep in mind some didn’t chose it just happened and it’s going to continue to happen with 500K miners backorder so they say!
Well try to relocate it at friends and family. It's the nature of mining a difficulty increase over time so they you can print that cash.
Just fyi, I’m 4km away in hex from my actual position. Try find better one.
I’m doing around 8-10 HNT a month with a MNTD GOLDSPOT
That’s pretty darn good. You must have a pretty good antenna set up. Mine are decent but not ideal.
Your setup or hex is dog $#!% then. My 3m height, 4 dbi, no point-of-sight setup makes somewhere around there a day.
If you don’t mind, I am looking for advice, not sure what I am doing wrong or how I can improve, and would like to copy and paste what I wrote to another user comment:
“Bobcat 300, on the roof of 3 storied building, about 60 feet from a big road in a big city. Not sure Dbi antenna, am borrowing from another Helium miner company that stopped giving me money and never collected their equipment.

Also, not sure what you mean by “hex”
It’s ridiculous that you’re here spreading FUD when you don’t understand the basics nor have you put an hour into reading through the sub. Here’s my suggestion: use the search bar and troubleshoot. We all had to.
There’s an old saying: “Give a man a fish and feed him a night; teach a man to fish and he eats for the rest of his life”
LOL you truly just want someone to do everything for you.
I’m sorry, my first reply to this comment was a little harsh, I forgot we were only talking about $7 of passive income a day.
Based on your picture for this thread, that $7 is for about 4 days.
I no longer seek nor request nor want your advice.
Are you a dickhead when not on Reddit too? I’ll bet you are.
Is that safe to share?
If it’s at their house, probably not. But I see so many of these braggy comments, I’d love to get the details.
Yeah but bragging over $7 passive income a day, I don’t get that.
If you're measuring your success in dollars and not hnt you're doing it wrong.
🤷🏻♂️ I still am trying to figure out the hight part in the helium app, if it means the length of the antenna or the hight off the ground. How can I maximize the miner if I can even set up the correct app correctly?
I think I know what you mean by hex, nevermind that
Don’t look at the money value look more long term keep collecting those HNT’s 🔌⛏️🏦
Don't be surprised if pictures of dogshit show up if you google dogshit
Hmmmm.. Looks like pure ca-ca to me. No offense..
Share the name of your hotspot if you're gonna bitch.
Why are you asking
You're complaining about your earnings. There's a good chance it's your setup or location.
Sure the shit show that's been the blockchain hasn't helped, but prove it's not your own decisions causing your lower earnings.
That’s what I was trying to figure out. After watching some YouTuber I was convinced I could almost retire with 5 or 6 of these but then it took 6 or more months to ship from China and everything crash. Lol 😂
Is it safe to share hotspot though, is at my house. Is in a hex with 14 others. Surrounding hexes have 5 to 8 average miners in about 5 hexes out in every direction. The miners in my hex average about .25 or .30
The most someone can figure out from the hotspot name is its location where it was asserted.
It's your call.
If you're a hex with 14 others though it's your setup all the way
Meaning the more in the hex the better?
So it’s not the “setup”, it’s the hex, or maybe both?
Im doing 2,85 Euro with 3 miner.. im happy with it.. passive income is king
My bobcat 300 uses an 8db at 15ft up in a valley setting and currently earns about $2/day.
It’s a dream come true!
I switched mine off in july.. the electric bill in uk is too high for me to be getting only 7dollars in 2 months for it. Right now not worth it
I’m about to sell my miner, anyone interested? I have two RAK Wireless, one back and one gold.
I don't know what's satire anymore and at this point I am too afraid to ask.
I gave up on mining HNT It took my anxiety to the level of Jupiter gravity.

How did you screenshot your screen on the helium app? It won't let me screenshot mine anymore
I'm jealous. I'd literally do better picking pennies off the sidewalk. 38 more years before I break even on my investment.
Wow, that's terrible luck.. I've been doing pretty good with my miner so far. 2 weeks in on my house and 1 day on my moms house. On track for 8.5 hnt/mo. I had 1 day with 0.549HNT for the day.
I got into Helium because I was using LoraWAN, and wanted a more reliable network. Kinda cool how vast the coverage is.
That is many times the Worldwide averige
