A helium crypto miner is basically a device that uses proof of coverage. These problems are then rewarded with new coins or tokens. This is done through a process known as Proof of Coverage (PoC).
There are many different types of crypto-miners, but each one works in the same way. The user enters their computer into the machine and starts the miner. Once started, the miner will use your computer’s processing power to try and find solutions to the math problems.
Every time the miner solves a problem, it gets paid for its efforts. It keeps track of all this data on an internal ledger which can be used to calculate the total amount earned throughout the day.
As long as the miner covers a certain radius it will continue to generate income. When the miner has found enough solutions, the block is finished and the money is transferred out of the system.
