What is Helium (HNT)?
Before understanding iHub, it is important to learn about the Helium project.
Helium was founded in 2013 by Shawn Fanning, Amir Haleem and Sean Carey, operating from Florida, USA.
The main aim of Helium is to create a global hotspot network (much the same as an internet hotspot) to connect IoT devices. IoT (Internet of Things) devices include smart bikes, tracking devices, smart home gadgets and other devices which can connect to the internet to exchange data.
To build the hotspot network, Helium sells router-like devices to miners.
Every Helium Hotspot Miner device is connected to the global network and hotspot device owners get rewards for mining.
HNT (Helium Token) is a cryptocurrency based on Helium blockchain technology, miners primarily get their rewards in HNT.
Helium wants to create a global network and ecosystem via its different platforms.

All one needs to do is set up the Helium hotspot and receive rewards in form of an HNT Token.
The Helium devices focus on deploying LoRaWAN i.e. Long Range Wide Area wireless networks that can connect to devices up to 5 miles away.

iHub Compensation Plan
When members host hotspots, they become eligible for earning 25% out of the overall mining earnings. The remaining is kept by iHub Global and distributed among affiliates.
To start earning with iHub Global, it is crucial to build a personally recruited downline. There are mainly 4 types of teams: Pro, Bronze, Silver, and Gold. The size of the team decides the percentage of commission.
|Personally Recruited Affiliates||Team|
|1-5 Affiliates||Pro Team|
|6-15 Affiliates||Bronze Team|
|16-25 Affiliates||Silver Team|
|26 and above||Gold Team|
Now there are different ways of earning with iHub Global such as Referral Rewards, Coded Bonus, Pro Network Bonus.
20% is paid as Referral Rewards for every hotspot developed by an Affiliate.
For instance, 20% of the total HNT generated from the Pro Team, 20% of the total HNT of the Bronze Team, and so on is Referral Reward for Affiliate.
The Coded Bonus is similar to the residual commissions. It is earned as a percentage of HNT that is mined by the teams in the Affiliate’s downline. Depending on the type of team, the percentage of the bonus differs.
|Downline Team||Percentage of Bonus|
Pro Network Bonus
It is paid as the percentage of HNT first five people.

To Be Concluded
Hope the above explanation helped you to understand the Helium hotspot project and iHub Global affiliate program.
Although it seems a lucrative opportunity and futuristic project. But there is risk and uncertainty for the time and money we invest in it.
There are separate arguments on Helium Project and iHub Global.
Future of Helium Project & HNT?
iHub Global totally relies on Helium. The commission is mainly rewarded in HNT and as cryptocurrency, its price is highly volatile, so the gathered commission value changes every second.
When this post is written the HNT ranks 44 as per the stats of CoinMarketCap, the future is unpredictable.
Personally, I get fascinated with such projects as Helium Hotspot to bring all IoT devices to one table. But practically Helium has major challenges to face.
The internet is free, so building people’s network on the internet is an easy and better option, instead of installing routers in every corner of the world and using hotspots.
Hotspot Minning Devices required continuous electricity and internet connection to operate, which is a major challenge to cope with.
Personally I feel, doing mining and earning HNT as the reward is the best use of Hotspot devices. While Mining devices are specifically for Helium mining and its hotspot project, if this project fails all your invested amount on hardware will waste as we can’t mine other cryptocurrencies with it.
Moreover, Helium’s project sounds interesting, but building people’s networks with Helium Hotspot devices has extra provisions.
iHub Global Affiliate Program
iHub Global is not a network marketing opportunity as no income from the multi-level downline is involved. iHub Global is more like an affiliate marketing program where deploying host will provide referral commission. More personal referral leads to higher commissions.
But Why iHub Global?
Now a question arises, if Helium itself provides the opportunity to install a Hotspot device and earn HNT, then why one will join iHub Global.
If someone wants to be part of Helium Hotspot, then they can purchase any available Helium Hotspot device and set it up.
Device price starts from $350 and individuals have the option to choose different manufacturers and models while joining with iHub have some limitations.
Even though affiliates have to pay a $99 application fee.
iHub only provides 25% of the total mining reward and reserves a major commission percentage for the referral bonuses.
iHub Global change its compensation structure as per their convenience. So why a serious miner will allow an intermediate to control their mining earnings.
The only advantage of iHub Global is the referral reward. Introducing the Helium project and installing a hotspot will provide commission for a lifetime which is not possible on joining Helium directly.
Referring up to 10 to 20 hotspot devices can provide decent passive income.
But is it worth convincing everyone to pay $99 extra?
iHub will have control over you and your enrolled affiliates’ mining earnings. iHub Global can change compensation structure anytime, which will affect your earnings extensively. While the intermediate also put some limitations.
The final decision is in your hand.

it’s a ponzi scheme…do the math…my miner did not work…they charge a fee just to watch their vegas show….the monthly fee is 18$ to rent/ 3$ interest and you mine about 9 coins/month…the promise was at first 8-10/000$/month…you only get about 20% of those coins…the company keeps the rest…after you pay your taxes you make no money…total scam…hansen promised me my money back…275$…I sent the miner back but I have NOT received one penny but the 18$ keeps being deducted from my bank account…the english guy who got me involved messaged me and apologized…these 2 scammers are making millions while we get nothing…they are liars and cheaters to a million people!!!
jaja glad you share the experience Im like an detective reading before signing I saw it the moment I saw the contract and conditions but you confirm it.
It is a scam. There charging $18 a month and the unit is producing only $4 – $5 a month. I want to return the unit, but cannot get anyone to contact me with return information. You can mine HNT without these jokers. STAY AWAY!
Garbage company, Garbage!!!! I just poured some gas on the hotspot an blew it up. Fuck off Ihump Global!! More rewarding seeing it explode anyway
I would love to do the same with the one I have but I was dumb enough to lease it and trying to find a way to break the lease and return it. So far, no luck.
As an ihub global helium miner I have noticed that the company has abandoned its hotspot miners. They have moved on to other endeavors touting their ihub travel and ihub meta verse projects. Guess that’s because HNT has gone down from its high of almost $40 to 1/10 th of that now and I receive only 25% of that HNT amount. I have been mining since April and have made less than $5 of HNT after shelling out $108 in lease fees. We need to band together and bring a class action against these scammers. Supposedly there are thousands of us.
I’m effed just like the rest..
Supposedly this Melissa lady from management team was supposed to contact me about my payment plus since I’m in NYC , coin zoom does not operate in my state . I need my refund and cancel the lease agreement. No one ever told me about CoinZoom not operating in NYC. Scumbags!!
Because of the hype, I was quite curious about their offer for awhile but realized it couldn’t be so easy.
