Explore Skyminer

The Skycoin Skyminer is meticulously designed and configured to provide a rock-solid telecom backbone for the Skywire infrastructure. The custom-built hardware is focused on delivering maximum security, efficiency and performance to the software-defined network. The multi-board architecture enables each node to support an independent service on Skywire. By isolating the nodes, each service can safely operate independently of attacks on peripheral services. These service-providing nodes are managed by an OpenWRT router with strict packet forwarding and access control rules for additional security. Skyminers are paid in Coin Hours for providing services and security to the Skywire network.

The Skycoin Consensus Algorithm

At Skycoin, we want to bring users what they asked for: a true, decentralized network without central authority. To accomplish this task, we went beyond PoW and PoS to create a wholly new decentralized algorithm that reconfigures the inner workings of blockchain. Our distributed consensus algorithm, Obelisk, succeeds in delivering just such a network.

Its web-of-trust style consensus prevents the development of centralized power. Skycoin requires no mining, is immune to 51% attack, and transactions occur in seconds. Decisions are made through community consensus, not based on the wishes of a few majority stakeholders.
