When planning a hotspot we run it through a series of intelligence checks to verify that it is an "eligible" placement for an iHub Hotspot. Currently, our algorithms are only checking to see if your planned hotspot is in too dense of an area or too close to another live hotspot, reserved hotspot, or pending reservation (24 hour period).
If your location does not pass intelligence, you will still be able save that planned location in your Planned Hotspots, but will not be able to send someone a virtual mining assessment, nor reserve an iHub hotspot for that location.
Why do we do this?>
1 We want to ensure a fair and level playing field for all iHub members when planning and deploying their networks. If there is a live, reserved or pending reserved hotspot already in that placement then placing another hotspot too close will only conflict, and prove mututally unbeneficial for both parties.
2 We also try our best to make sure anyone who receives an iHub Hotspot will generate decent mining rewards. If we didn't take location placement and proof-of-coverage into account then it would almost guarantee low mining rewards.
