In traditional Bitcoin mining, the barriers to entry are high for the normal user. Today, things in the mining world are changing and doors are opening up to just about anyone expressing interest in contributing to a project’s service or offering. This new (low electricity consuming) class of miners have been created to provide world wide services with Low-Power (LP) products, making it easy for dispersed networks to be built and utilized by individuals in private homes and businesses quickly becoming the new darlings of Passive Income.

Synopsis of 3 miners highlighted above:

1. Deeper Network mining

  • Pros

2. Helium Network mining

  • Pros

3. PlanetWatch (Awair) Mining

  • Pros

While all of the above projects have their pros and cons, it’s not a requirement to choose one token to mine over the other — all can be mined non-competitively. All three of these projects are easy enough to mine if you have the basic ability to follow instructions and troubleshoot when roadblocks occur. I find that Reddit and Discord and been helpful resources when setting up and looking for answers on one-off problems.
