Please advise Dragino LSP8, is a Helium Data-Only Hotspot (will mine by Data Transfer), and it is NOT a Helium approved miner hotspot.

Note: The 915 MHz band is for use in USA. For our 868 Europe/India version, click here

The LPS8 is an open source LoRaWAN Gateway. It lets you bridge LoRa wireless network to an IP network via WiFi or Ethernet. The LoRa wireless allows users to send data and reach extremely long ranges at low data-rates.

This is NOT a full hotspot and, as of this publication, does NOT transact on the Helium mainnet, earning HNT, it works on the helium testnet and earns TNT. This is expected to change in the near future, but it is not clear when.

Currently Data Only hotspots can only mine HNT through packet transfer. See more important details from the Helium site here.

For more information on the expected timeframe of the implementation of light Helium hotspots, Please refer to the Helium roadmap here:
