RAK Hotspot V2 earn HNT when devices connect, and for validating wireless coverage delivered by peers. Using a system called Proof-of-Coverage, RAK Hotspot V2 earn more HNT when they're in range of other RAK Hotspot V2, but need to be at least 300 meters apart.
Range depends on the environment, for rural areas up to 10 miles or more, but for more dense areas up to a mile. Single RAK Hotspot V2 earn less as they can only issue Challenges over the internet, and can’t participate in Proof-of-Coverage.
