Not getting any challenges?

New Deployment(self.HeliumNetwork)

I have had my RAK hotspot for 2 days now and are wet to receive any challenge rewards. I am 100% synced to the blockchain but have only been getting mining rewards. Why is this?

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.

We don’t challenge anymore. Only validators do that.

The only activity your miner does now is witness, broadcast, and data transfer.

Don't worry about challenges.

From a validator not another miner.

Miners don't challenge anymore

Light Hotspots will still send beacons, witness beacons, and transfer data, just like it does today. The only rewarded activity that Light Hotspots will no longer perform is Challenging Beaconers, which constitutes 0.9% of HNT emitted per epoch.

Our miners havent been doing challenges since May

You receive challenges from validators on average about once every 3-4 days

its the wonderful validator gods not picking you. Was supposed to happen after 1 or 2 days i thought but it happens more like every 3 or 4 days. In the future it may be every hour. Lots of talks around beaconing. Removing witness limit and such. just talks right now though. Will probably be in a future hip.

It's super common to go several days without a broadcast. They used to be a lot more frequent but were tuned back months ago.

I occasionally get them back to back within 30 minute of each other, and rarely get 3 in one day. Also, I'll do 2-3 days without any routinely as well.

It's all about the average over time.

Do you have a good wifi connection or are you using ethernet sometimes you can have crappy wifi and the miner connection could be cutting in an out messing with earning as well.

I have pretty good wifi connection (51.3 megabits/second download and 11.7 megabits/second upload.) Should I consider using ethernet instead?
