Skywire Miner - skyguy - 12-04-2017

The Skywire “miner” is meticulously designed and configured to provide a backbone for the new internet. Its custom-built hardware exceeds technical specifications to deliver maximum power and performance. Skywire functions as a “miner” for Skycoins. It acts as a specialized VPN, using the following hardware configuration:
  • 8 CPU boards
  • 2 GB of RAM per board
  • 4 CPU cores per board
  • 64 GB of storage per board
  • 64-bit Linux (Alpine Linux)
  • Gigabit ethernet, 8+1 port switch
Each board features an ARM processor, 2 GB of RAM, and anywhere from 32 to 256 GB flash storage. The hardware is segmented in such a way that even if one service is compromised, the other services on the same machine can’t be. An OpenWRT router with strict packet forwarding rules and access control increases security. The setup can be further customized to consist of 4, 8, 16, or 32 boards.

1 Bitcoin (BTC). I believe the miner costs $600 so you get the difference in skycoins
