Helium is a decentralized wireless network using low power smart devices (IoT) to transmit and receive data to and from the internet. Coverage providers for the Helium Network are known as "miners". Miners purchase a Helium Hotspot to use RF radio signals to provide coverage in return for payment in Helium tokens (abbreviated as the cryptocurrency HNT). Miners earn greater amounts of HNT if they transmit and receive with more Helium hotspots, so hotspot placement and antenna strength are key factors in HNT earning potential.
