MNTD. the crypto-hardware company providing consumers with easy-to-use crypto-mining devices, has unveiled an industry-first everything-in-one 5G Helium hotspot.
The MNTD. 5G Hotspot combines multiple solutions in one device, eliminating the need for a complex setup and added cost of buying and combining multiple solutions from different vendors. The 5G device is designed to be future-proof and ready-to-use with upcoming Helium networks, such as WiFi6.
“Designing a product for non-technical crypto users is not easy—it takes time to get it right,” says RAKwireless CEO Ken Yu.
“We are thrilled to announce the next evolution of 5G devices. We have successfully built a device that enables a spectrum of wireless connectivity options—spanning 5G, WiFi6, 4G/LTE, and LoRa.”
By hosting a MNTD. 5G hotspot, consumers help build 5G cellular coverage and are rewarded in cryptocurrency tokens. It mines only $HNT today. When HIP 51 is deployed, it will mine $MOBILE and $IOT tokens as well.
To maintain hardware simplicity and a clean look, the device uses a single cable to power the hotspot and connect to the network. The built-in USB-C port provides consumers flexible options for extensions, such as connecting to external outdoor radios.
The MNTD. 5G Hotspot is also powered by Qualcomm FSM10056, the industry’s pioneering 5G chipset for CBRS small cells, only released at the end of 2021. While most manufacturers currently base their devices on the traditional x86 hardware platform, MNTD. moved its hardware to the ARM platform allowing it to use less power and cut unnecessary costs. MNTD. is the first manufacturer in the Helium network to make this move.
The MNTD. 5G Hotspot will be available in Q4 2022.
