Hotspot Firmware Updates: Hardware Support and Blockchain Improvements

· One min read

The team has a new release tagged 2020.12.30.0 with improved hardware support for the RAK Hotspot Miner updates (ECC chip support), new region configs for future hotspots in China, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore and Australia, minor adjustments to challenge targeting jitter, and a snapshot bump. Please read on for more details and plan for GA.

miner#597: Adjust the POC challenge jitter factor

Adjust the PoC interval jitter to behave better with larger PoC interval values. This should result in slightly increased challenge rates.

miner#589: Snapshot bump to 653041

We have updated the snapshot block to 653041 to allow newly onboarded hotspots to sync faster to the current blockchain head block.


We have been beta testing 2020.12.30.0 since December 30th, 2020 2:00PM PT. Current ETA for GA is 12:00 PM PT, December 31st, 2020.
