Before you purchase a miner, it might be worthwhile to ask the important question:
How much will I make with Helium in 2022?
Based on our calculation, in 2022, a miner will earn 0.1 HNT per day on average.
Let’s take a look at how we get this number.
Every month 2,500,000 Helium tokens are awarded in total.
Here’s how these 2.5M tokens are distributed:
|Awarded to||% Amount||HNT|
|Helium company and Investors||35||875,000|
Today there are nearly 400,000 hotspots on the Helium Network.
We can expect there will be 500,000 hotspots in the first quarter of 2022.
The average amount a miner can make every month is 1,475,000/500,000 = 2.95 HNT.
Divide this by 30 gives about 0.1 HNT per day.
Obviously some miners will make more than others. For instance in this post that discusses the profitability of Helium mining , we’ve shown how earnings can vary by a factor of 120. The actual number of HNT you can make in a day depends on many factors including:
- How long your miner is online
- Positioning of your miner – includes antenna and height
- Miner density at your location
In this post we have discussed some tips to increase your HNT earnings.
