What is PKT?

PKT is a decentralized physical infrastructure (DePIN) ecosystem supporting open internet access and powering the decentralized web.

Open Internet Access

Each Mini can optionally become a wifi access point and offer PKT Free Internet. This extends internet access by making it free for people to get online or they can pay for fast speed.

Decentralized Web

Mining builds the PKT Network. This is a place where anyone can build censorship-resistant websites that are accessible from traditional web browsers while promoting internet privacy.

Infrastructure

The PKT Network is full decentralized. It’s powered by people like you who are rewarded to mine PKT with their bandwidth and help get the next billion people get online.

How to Earn by PKT Mining?

The PKT blockchain automatically pays you every minute when you keep your Mini connected to the internet. The better quality your internet connection, the higher your yields. It’s that simple.

Estimated Earnings

Yields vary based on your available bandwidth speed, the number of people mining and the price of PKT. As awareness for PKT increase, the value of your holdings may increase as well.

Operation costs depend on energy and bandwidth expenses in your region. The Mini’s power consumption is ~18.3 Kwh/month. At $0.20 per Kwh would be less than $4 per month. Bandwidth costs vary based on your internet provider. If you are bandwidth constrained or have data caps, you can program your Mini for reduced bandwidth consumption.
Yields from each Mini vary depending on your bandwidth speed. Mini’s typically earn between 20-50 PKT per day. Profits will depend on several factors, including your bandwidth speed, blockchain mining difficulty, and the price of PKT. The PKT price is based on market demand. Blockchain mining difficulty is based on how many miners are on the network, divided by the Current Block Rewards. This information can be found at packetscan.io. Every 100 days the Current Block Rewards automatically reduces by 10%. This is designed to increase demand over time. It is believed that the best time to accumulate PKT is while yields are higher and price and demand are lower.
When the Mini is mining no one is using your internet. If you choose to optionally activate PKT Free Internet, people will be able to get online through your open mesh wifi, however, all access is through a VPN, so there is no privacy or security risk. You can also choose to charge for wifi access and earn additional revenue. You have full control over your network and wifi sharing.
When someone connects to PKT Free Internet, they are prompted to login via a captive portal. You can choose to collect login information, such as name, email, or phone number, or offer open internet access. When the user gets online, they connect through a built-in VPN. This means the user’s traffic is not registered through your internet service, which ensures your privacy and security.
PKT Free Internet is safe because all traffic is encrypted using VPN technology. This ensures that both your internet service connection and the user’s connections are safe and secure.
