Light Hotspots - HeliumTracker.io API - New Features

The transition from helium to "light hotspots" is complete. As most of you have noticed, the update did not go smoothly and has resulted in the loss of POC rewards for a few days.
With the update, validators will take over the job of generating beacons and therefore our hotspots will no longer need to sync the blockchain. This will ensure that the network will be more stable in the future and fewer hotspots will be offline.

# New features on heliumTracker.io.

* Sync Data removed

Sync-Data & Block Height have been removed from the website and from hotspot guard.

* Validators have been added: *

So now you can also track your validators revenue through our service.
to add a validator you can currently use the hotspot add form and use the address of your validator in the address field.

* DEVELOPER TOOLS: HeliumTracker.io API & Webhooks

We also released our HeliumTracker.io API a few weeks ago. You can use this to use data from your account in your own tools.
You can also define a webhook URL in your account to which all realtime notifications will be sent.

* Automatic Payout Receipts via Email

You can now send payout receipts via email to your hosts when paying your comisssions.

* Monthly Report via Email

Long awaited by many: You can now also have your Monthly Reports sent via Emails: this feature is available for your account as well as for your hosts/contacts.

* Thanks to HotspotRF.com

As previously announced, we are already working behind the scenes with HotspotRF.com to share our Dedicated Blockchain Servers (ETLs). This has given us the opportunity to take our Blockchain Servers offline and perform important maintenance.
We will continue to deepen our cooperation with HotspotRF in the coming week.

New version of our HeliumTracker mobile app

Today we released a new version of our HeliumTracker mobile app.

This version fixes issues with In App Purchases so it is important to update before you purchase a membership through the app.

In the old version it happened that some of you bought duplicate memberships and paid for them twice.

Unfortunately, we cannot actively refund duplicate payments. You have to request a refund in the AppStore or PlayStore, which we will of course refund.
If you are affected please open a ticket in support with your UserId so we can fix your account.

Android Mobile App - Open Test

We have finally reopened the public test of the android version of our mobile app in #beta-test-mobile
To participate react to our support bot and follow the link.

As we are already fully approved by both apple and google we are very close to the final release of our mobile app.
The only thing missing for the version 1.0 is the in app purchase of our premium membership.

If you want to test the premium features (hotspot guard, reward push notifications...) you can purchase a membership on our website. The membership is valid for both the app and the website.

Last but not least: Sorry for the last (fake-news) announcement on this topic when we thought the open test is available. This time we have verified it multiple times.

please leave your feedback in #bugs-android or #suggestions-mobile

Custom Dashboards & New Boxes

With today's update you have the possibility to customize your dashboard to your needs.

In addition to the "old boxes", there are now also boxes for the last 24 hours, the current and past month and even one that shows you the rewards since the last payout.

In addition, the new system now also shows the percentage change from the comparison period before.

In some boxes you will also find a prediction function - however, this is still in the testing phase and will be optimized in the next few days.

Do you have an idea for more boxes? Drop it in #suggestions-website

In the background we are still working hard to release our mobile app. It turns out that it's not that easy to publish a crypto-related app in the AppStores. The integration of the in-app-purchase causes us many hurdles and without it we are not allowed to publish the app.

If the process takes longer, we will restart our internal tests for Android users without limitation.
