EARN $HNT WITH LINXDOT

What is the Linxdot Helium Hotspot?

Designed to be elegant and discreet, yet in the background part of wireless revolution.

The Linxdot Helium Hotspot provides wireless network coverage for Internet of Things (IoT) devices using Long-Fi. Plug the hub to an ethernet connection and it becomes part of the Helium network, the world’s largest wireless network. 

Helium then rewards you in $HNT cryptocurrency for providing and validating this wireless network coverage.

Linxdot uses as little as 12W of energy and can cover up to 10 miles. All you need to do is set up your Linxdot Hotspot from your home and start mining. It is that simple.

How does Linxdot compare?

With so many Helium Hotspots to choose from, why should you choose Linxdot? 

The Linxdot Hotspot has been designed so it doesnt look out of place anywhere in the home or indoors. It’s built by an experienced team of electronics engineers and IOT experts, who specialise in electronics product design and manufacturing.

Our existing global delivery network is ready to ship once the product is ready and our customer support team are on hand if you need to contact them.  

Expert
Manufacturer

Linxdot is designed & built by a team of experienced engineers. Across the group, we have designed and manufactured our own high-end, Qualcomm Android smartphones that have sold in over 60 countries globally.

3dBi
Antenna

The Linxdot Hotspot comes with a higher gain antenna, allowing your hotspot to cover much further distances. This means increased $HNT earnings!

Compute
Power

The Linxdot Hotspot runs on a quad core 1.5GHz CPU. Higher cycle eMMC allows for maximised longevity of the device, compared to the lower-rated MicroSD cards in the original RAK hotspot.

Frequently asked questions

The Linxdot hotspot is currently pending Helium community approval and testing. Subject to passing community approval, testing and certifications, we expect to open pre-orders and start shipping hotspots in Summer 2021.

We suggest joining our waitlist to be amongst the first to hear when we start accepting orders.

Depending on location, altitude and building density, the Linxdot Hotspot covers areas between 1 and 10 miles.

Shipments to the UK are shipped from our UK warehouse.

Shipments to the rest of the world will ship from Hong Kong with an express courier service via FedEx. We don’t charge sales tax for orders outside the UK, therefore this will be charged via the courier at the time of delivery based on local tariffs.

The People’s Network is powered by a new rewards-based model, made possible by the Helium Blockchain. Helium LongFi™ combines LoRaWAN with the Helium Blockchain and is optimised for miles of wireless network coverage, and long battery life for Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

The People’s Network connects devices and collects data through its secure and affordable wireless connectivity, without needing to deploy & maintain costly cellular networks and infrastructure.

  1. Affordable pricing – Costs are much cheaper than those associated with cellular networks.
  2. Mass coverage – Helium is the largest public LoRaWAN network in the world. 
  3. Miles of Range – Devices can communicate 200x further on Helium Long-Fi than through Wi-Fi.
  4. Earn $HNT – By hosting a Helium Hotspot Miner, you will be rewarded with HNT helping to provide network coverage for IoT devices.

The Linxdot miner runs on legal for broadcasting frequencies. The device is pending global certifications of conformity and it only uses pre-certified components.

The frequencies emitted and received by the Linxdot miner are lower in power than those used by smartphones, and are completely safe for use indoors.
