Helium Mining and It’s Benefits

Helium mining is an emerging technology that allows users to earn digital currency by contributing to a decentralized network that powers the Internet of Things (IoT) devices. In this blog, we’ll discuss the benefits of helium mining for businesses, individuals, and society as a whole, and compare it to other network technologies like WiFi.


Antennas and Your Helium Miner’s Location

You’re about to learn how to make more Helium tokens. Let’s dive into antennas and your Helium miners location.

Maybe you’ve already bought a helium miner. Maybe you’re still tossing up which one to get (in which case, shameless self-plug: use our code MINERSAU for a discount on miners avaliable).

There’s a few questions you might have stewing away. Do I need an antenna? Will it make my Helium tokens shoot for the moon? How do I know if this antenna works with my miner?

Relax. We’ve got you covered. Let’s get into it.


What antenna should I use for a Helium Miner?

Helium miners are taking over Australia you’re probably wondering what antenna should I use for a Helium Miner?

With competition heating up between individual routers for those valuable Helium tokens (HNT), there’s one element of setting up your miner that’s becoming more and more important.


The antenna you choose can have a huge effect on your miner’s ability to generate Helium tokens over a long period of time. 

Antenna research can get confusing, so we put together a few points to help clear up some common questions on the ins and outs of choosing an antenna for your Helium miner.

Helium, LoRaWAN

How does a Helium Miner work and what is LoRaWAN?

Helium mining is becoming a very hot topic leading into 2022 and you’re probably wondering, what is a Helium Miner, how does a Helium Miner work and what is LoRaWAN?

Key points:

  • Helium miners form a LoRaWAN network for low bandwidth, long battery life devices
  • LoRaWAN is a networking protocol built atop the LoRa communications protocol. It is a decentralised network, unlike similar protocols such as NB-IoT and LTE Cat M that are operated by large Communication Service Providers
  • Helium miners provide the incentives required to scale the LoRaWAN network
  • IoT device numbers are projected to reach into the 10’s of billions in the coming years, making it a highly lucrative industry
