Technical Q and A

I have several questions. I’ll add each one separate.

How much wifi data does one bridge use in a given month?

What determines the value of a given blue tooth block (or sector whatever we are going to call it). Is it perhaps the amount of blue tooth devices active in that area or the value that land has for example if it is a shopping mall or a casino. It is important to find this out so we can mine more efficiently.

Can our sentinels be mined by others?

On the leaderboard the top one Miner had mined 400,000 how many days was that in?

Does the bridge mine faster than our cellphone?

How often does our sentinels record data. Is it like when we auto mine with our phones? In other words what is the refresh rate or ping rate. What is the time it takes for each sentinel to communicate with each other.

I would have to guess that travel speed of 15-25 mph is Max for you to mine a square so it would have to be close to 2 1/2 seconds to a Max of 5 secs. It would be a safe guess of 3 seconds. But that doesn’t mean that the sentinels are set to search constantly at that rate. I noticed that about every third to forth time my phone mines that I get a bigger hit. With that being factored in I believe the sentinels are set to search about four times a minute rather than every few seconds. Plus given that the square it stays in has already been mined then it won’t search till it moves to a new square or the given minute for the current square has passed. Any other ideas people?

I believe that to be true. If 2 people attempt to mine at the exact same moment in the same ‘Quadtile’ (XY’s descriptive word for a single square on the map.) then the resultant XYO coin generated will be shared between both miners.

As far as I can tell so far the Bridge does not mine. In fact I bought a bridge and so far it seems to have done nothing useful, I am hoping the true value of a bridge will be revealed soon.

Does sentinels mine? I mean my general understanding is that they do. That they record there surroundings and upload/unload that data to a Miner/bridge. If so how long can a sentinel collect data before it becomes full and needs to dump it’s memory? Need to know this so I would need to know how soon to interact with each one.

Turning your device to a sentinel would that make your phone create a ledger that would be mined for xyo through the coin app? How would you register a phone or tablet as a sentinel on the coin app? I mean if you can’t mine the phone or tablet then what would be the purpose of making it a sentinel? I know that I can register them into the xy findable app and that grows your origin chain but does that mean a bigger mining rig or just more witnesses?

One sentinel can be used by multiple people around to mine the coin app. However, with the kit. The sentinel download load info collected from other user to the bridge.

With the kit the sentinel are use as information gatherers and witnesses. A sentinel can offload to another user’s sentinel if the other sentinel have the space to store the data. Both users get bound witness credits.

But how fast will the sentinels memory get full if the data doesn’t get offloaded? Need to know how often to cross paths with each sentinel.
