Hotspot Share is available in North America at this time.

A Hotspot Miner mines a cryptocurrency called $HNT by providing wireless coverage.

$HNT is rewarded to Hotspots for peering with other nearby Hotspots as part of Proof-of-Coverage and for any data transferred through the Hotspot.

See $HNT rewards for Hotspots on SiteBot.

Submit a ticket if you no longer want to host the Hotspot. We'll send you a prepaid shipping label to send the Hotspot back.

If you're moving to a new location, we will reassert the Hotspot's location. Email us or send a ticket with your new address.

Due to a surge in applications, only a limited number of applications are accepted to the program at this time, depending on location. You will receive an email if your application is approved.

Hotspot Share operates independently from and is in no way related to Helium, Nebra, Bobcat, or Cal-Chip Connected Devices.

Up to one Hotspot per person is allowed in the program.

Set up the Hotspot by connecting to your internet and syncing to the Helium blockchain. Once this is done, the Hotspot will begin mining. Here’s a guide.

Hotspots use approximately the same amount of energy as a 5W LED light-bulb, which comes out to as low as $0.02/day.

Hotspots use approximately 15-20 GB of internet data each month.

Hotspots require one port open which is similar to many other home devices.

Hotspot Share payouts are sent to the provided $HNT wallet address each month after the Hotspot is online, generally during the first week of the month.

PDFs of Hotspot Rewards (including any referral rewards) are sent by email each month. The Hotspot's three-word identifier (labelled on the Hotspot) can also be used to check the Hotspot's total rewards on Helium Explorer.

A W-9 form is needed by Hotspot Share for all payouts greater than $500 for an individual during a calendar year. This requirement is to ensure we comply with all tax regulations. The $HNT Oracle Price at time of payout is used to calculate the total value of $HNT paid out. To send in a W-9 form, please submit it through your account Dashboard.

You can find your referral code in the "My Dashboard" page after logging in.
