最初，较大份额的 HNT 分发给了构建和保护网络覆盖的 Hotspot 分享者。
随着网络不断发展，Hotspot 通过在本网络上传输设备数据赚取了更多的代币，相较而言，Helium Inc. 和投资方所占的份额较少。20 年后，配额不再调整，保持固定。
HNT supply comes from mining with a compatible Hotspot that both mines HNT and creates network coverage for IoT devices. All HNT was mined from genesis, and gets created at a fixed 5M/mo rate.
Data Credits reflect demand based on usage of the network. To create DCs, HNT must be burned from circulation. DCs are non-transferable or resellable, and can only be used for data transmission on the network.
As usage increases, more HNT will burn from circulation, decreasing the inflation rate. Moving forward, we expect more usage of the network driving deflationary pressure, and continually reducing the circulating supply of HNT.
DC Demand Increases
More devices means more DCs
HNT Supply Reduces
HNT is burnt to create Data Credits
Inflation Rate Reduces
Devices add deflationary pressure to HNT
Data Credits 是通过 Helium Network 发送数据的唯一认可支付方法。
Data Credits 允许用户通过 LongFi 无线协议传输数据字节，用于支付区块链交易费。Data Credits 价格固定以美元为单位。正如预付手机通话时间或航班里程一样，Data Credits 是不可转让的资产，仅供原始拥有人使用。
要获得 Data Credits，网络用户可以兑换 HNT 或从 HNT 分享者处获取。任何兑换成 Data Credits 的 HNT 将永久从循环供应中移除（也称“烧币”）。
