What is Helium? I’m glad you asked!
I bought my hotspot. Click HERE to buy yours!
Why would I want to BUY a Helium Hotspot?
With a Helium Hotspot, you can earn cryptocurrency by helping to build a wireless network in your city while creating a more connected future.
As you and your neighbors buy and deploy Helium Hotspots, a wireless mesh network is created to cover the whole neighborhood and city.
What do I do with my Helium Hotspot?
When it arrives, find a good spot in your home near a window, plug it in and let it do its thing. The yearly energy cost is minimal, about the cost of a fancy blended coffee drink at the upscale local coffee shop.
The Hotspot serves as both the backbone of the network by providing many square miles of connectivity and as a node for the Helium blockchain which powers the reward system. Simply provide internet to the Hotspot and join the network.
Hotspots can support thousands of devices, yet only require about the same amount of power as an LED light bulb (5W).
When you deploy a hotspot in your city, you are helping to provide wireless coverage for low power Internet of Things (IoT) devices and earn a new cryptocurrency, HNT, from your living room.
Your hotspot will connect millions of Internet of Things devices in your city. Hotspots will earn you HNT (which is now traded on Binance). When you purchase and deploy your Helium Hotspot, you join and contribute to a network that belongs to the people, not the big telephone companies.
What are Internet of Things (IoT) devices?
The video above does a great job of introducing the Internet of Things (IoT) and how they work within the ecosystem.
Your Helium Hotspot allows these IoT devices to connect to a network. Businesses that utilize the network like Lime, InvisiLeash, SmartMimic, and other companies pay to use the network, which then pays you in HNT for contributing to the mesh network.
What about security?
The Helium Network is secure. You can read more here.
Helium devices are hardware secured to protect the traffic from the 900 MHz spectrum. This means the security is built-in since devices using the network have AES private key encryption at the chip level.
The security of the network and Hotspot owners is of the utmost importance. While the internet connection is necessary, it is only used to provide backhaul to the Hotspot for blockchain peer-to-peer and LongFi networking.
What is LongFi?
Helium LongFi is a new open, wireless technology optimized for miles of range, and long battery life for IoT devices.
Whereas your home WiFi router may cover several hundred feet, LongFi covers several miles! Depending on your topography, the Helium Hotspot is estimated to cover between 3 – 6 miles straight out of the box. Some people use an antenna extender to increase the range even further.
Is the Helium Hotspot profitable?
I am not a financial advisor, so it’s best to do your own research. What I’ve discovered from other people who have been in the game longer than me, is that a ROI is less than 1 year for a $500 router.
Your profit depends on where you are in the world and how close you are to other Helium Routers. The more of a network you create, the better the return you should make.
Based on a YouTube video I watched, one gentleman earned his money within 6 months. Of course, since we are paid in helium tokens, the fluctuation of HNT will affect your profitability as well.
Overall, this looks like a great opportunity for ME, so I decided to by my first Helium Router. I plan to deploy 10 routers within the next 30 days. Would you like to join me? I’ll teach you exactly how I am doing this.
Plus, since Helium Routers are still under 10,000 cities, there are some special incentives available for the people who get involved now. Would you like to claim a city in the world? If your answer is YES, then please contact me TODAY.
I’ll keep you posted on my progress with Helium!
