Skywire Miner Components List
#11
i read somewhere that the 1st gen miners come with the equivalent of 8 orange pis. i have two questions. 1) is it worth just building a one-pi skyminer or does it make a significant difference if i have 8. Also, does 8 mean buying the entire part list 8 times or just the mem cards and a bigger power supply and 8 of the orange pi motherboards?

I would say start with 1 Pi and scale up when / if required. Alternatively, configure a PC node while waiting for skywire to be launched

If you have experience with Ubuntu (Linux), see this thread for info -> https://skywug.net/forum/Thread-Configur...ntu-Server

i have no experience with linux but am so inspired by this project that i am taking this opportunity to both become acquainted with linux and become a better programmer so that i can contribute to the project. I asked a programmer friend of mine and he said that CX most closely resembles C, and to get good at that language if i want to become good at CX. Anyway im getting ahead of myself, the next question I had is do i only need to build the pi for ~$125 and thats it? Do i not need some sort of strong wifi broadcasting antenna type thing or other stuff? thanks again for helping

whoops i was looking at the list posted by doprah weedfrey in the telegram. ill copy paste it here for clarification.

Skywire node can be configured on a windows desktop as well. See here -> https://github.com/skycoin/skywire

Regarding wireless antennas, that will be part of the mesh network phase of skywire, where communities get together and build big mesh networks

So I dont need to buy any sort of antenna, and I would have to come together with my local community to buy one and put one up somewhere? How is the initial freemium tier of users going to connect to my node if they dont have internet access and I dont have an antenna? Im supposed to have a weaker antenna type thing of my own right?

I have PSU (shown below), how many miners will be running on  this PSU?

Also, where to give power for this device?

It depends on how many wats has and how many wats all the equipments will consume.
To power the powersupply you have to tie to a C13 plug or directly a cable to the coresponding L ( line) N (null) and Gnd that picture next to the N. It depends on the country which cable colour scheme to watch, bellow you will find one. And from the DC output you will use + and - to power the pi’s an all other equipments.

Just for reference, how long are the standoffs used in the "factory" miner? I assume M2.5 x ?

Any particular reason for opting for the Orange Pi Prime? Couldn't a Raspberry Pi work, or a NanoPi Fire3 or something?
Or is this just about trying to replicate the specs of the Skywire Miner?
