This Helium miner release prepares for off-chain PoC by updating the automatic beacon rate to every 6 hours. From there, the off-chain oracle will process the Proof-of-Coverage and store the results in a database, NOT on the Helium Blockchain.

No rewards will be given for Off-Chain beacons or witnesses at this time. It will not affect rewards for Hotspots on the network until the chain variable activation in January 2023.
