At this time, the Bobber 500 will not be available for any other countries outside of the US.

Bobber 500 Profitability 

Bobber 500 will provide wireless network coverage for IoT devices and cellular devices (like cell phones) operating in the CBRS band. In deploying a Bobber 500, users will earn HNT cryptocurrency by offloading cell data for carriers like DISH Wireless and GigSky. 

HNT cryptocurrency is freely exchangeable to other cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin or fiat currencies at many popular cryptocurrency exchanges. Please refer to public data sources for HNT prices and places to trade.

Bobber 500 will always mine at least as much as a Bobcat Miner 300 but has the added capability of earning additional rewards by attaching a cellular radio. The rewards for cellular mining will vary depending on a number of factors including: 

  1. Location of the Gateway 
  2. The Capability of the Small Cell Radio
  3. The speed and Reliability of Your Internet Connection
  4. The Number of Roaming Partners on the Network. 

Additional Hardware

Yes. In addition to the Bobber Gateway, you will need to buy a radio, certified to operate in the CBRS band. We are currently working with FreedomFi to certify small cell radios that will be available to purchase on our website.
