GKIIN Vol 1 Issue 3



The Gris­tle King Indus­try Insid­er Newslet­ter is a week­ly pub­li­ca­tion gath­er­ing all the intel and obser­va­tions we col­lect as crit­i­cal nodes in the blockchain + meatspace.

-GEOD­net is look­ing for third par­ty man­u­fac­tur­ers for their min­ers.  They are aim­ing to grow to 100k min­ers world wide.  They can cur­rent­ly run on a Pi4, which is the rea­son for the RAK V2 swap offer, or their own pro­pri­etary hard­ware (Hyfix.)

-With ear­ly Hotspot mak­ers like Pycom going out of busi­ness, there may be an oppor­tu­ni­ty for Bob­cat to be the “back­up of choice” for pro­vid­ing long term support.

-HIP 72 (Secure Con­cen­tra­tor) may offer an oppor­tu­ni­ty for Bob­cat to mfr those.  Hap­py to make an intro to Dinocore (HIP orig­i­na­tor) if that’s useful.

-The Bor­ing Pro­to­col (cryp­to VPN project) wants to move in as a Heli­um sub­DAO.  Bor­ing Pro­to­col allows you to buy a sep­a­rate device or add firmware to a cur­rent device (like a Heli­um Hotspot) that acts as a node in a VPN. Some com­plex­i­ties exist around adding firmware, as some­one will have to burn HNT to do that. We rec­om­mend con­sid­er­ing a con­ver­sa­tion with them sup­port­ing their firmware.

-The Map­Met­rics SPT track­er arrived, and like many ear­ly cryp­to hard­ware projects, works about 20% of the time.  They’re promis­ing 2000 MMaps (their cur­ren­cy) to all who received a unit.

-Max has just applied as a com­mit­tee mem­ber for the Heli­um Foun­da­tion’s new gov­er­nance com­mit­tee. We’d rec­om­mend you apply as well, con­tact Valerie at the Heli­um Foun­da­tion to see if they’ll accept a man­u­fac­tur­er rep.
