The Skywire "miner" is meticulously designed and configured to provide a backbone for the new internet. Its custom-built hardware exceeds technical specifications to deliver maximum power and performance. Skywire functions as a “miner” for Skycoin. It acts as a specialized VPN, using the following hardware configuration:
- 8 CPU boards
- 2 GB of RAM per board
- 4 CPU cores per board
- 16 GB of storage per board
- 64-bit Linux (Debian)
- 100 Mbps Ethernet, 8+1 port switch
Each board features an ARM processor, 2 GB of RAM, and anywhere from 16 to 256 GB flash storage. The hardware is segmented in such a way that even if one service is compromised, the other services on the same machine can’t be. The setup can be further customized to consist of 4, 8, 16, or 32 boards.
Nodes operating on the Skywire network will be receiving a network incentive reward to help build out the network, in addition to traffic forwarding payments.
Skycoin rewards will be adjusted every month to equal 1/24 ($83.30 USD) of the miner price. Every miner is eligible to receive up to 24 reward payouts, provided uptime requirements for the network are met. Rewards can be claimed within three years.
After completing the Skyminer purchase you will receive an email to complete registration with our whitelisting system.
