This is a question on everyone’s mind as they decide whether they want to get into Helium or not.
A Helium miner makes on average 0.08 HNT a day in March 2022. This amounts to about $1.75 per day in earnings.
By comparison, the Highest earning miner makes 1.9 HNT per day or $41.5.
How long before I can recover the investment in my Helium Miner?
If you paid $500 for your miner, you will recover your investment in 286 days. But this assumes that no additional miners are added to the Helium Network. It also assumes that the price of Helium doesn’t increase.
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 620,000 hotspots on the Helium Network. The average amount a miner can make every month is 1,475,000/620,000 = 2.38 HNT. Divide this by 30 gives about 0.08 HNT per day.
