   * Can act as a ‘minting’ node which allows users to earn QORT token rewards for a plethora of usages (minting being the method that is most relatable to ‘mining’ on a ‘traditional’ blockchain; helps secure the blockchain and is rewarded for doing so). **You must first have an enabled minting account in order for this portion of the device to be utilized. Enabled minting accounts can be obtained by becoming '​sponsored'​ and getting the 'right to be a minter'​ after a set amount of blocks in '​sponsorship period'​. The start sponsorship period is 5 days. Once that period has passed, you are then a level 1 minter and can mint blocks.**   * Can act as a ‘minting’ node which allows users to earn QORT token rewards for a plethora of usages (minting being the method that is most relatable to ‘mining’ on a ‘traditional’ blockchain; helps secure the blockchain and is rewarded for doing so). **You must first have an enabled minting account in order for this portion of the device to be utilized.

-*Limitations - There is virtually no limit to what features can be added. If it is Unix friendly, it can be added provided the source code exists. For example, G-Wan web server (http://​gwan.ch/​) only provides binaries so it can’t be ported on the router but a legendary IRC Client BitchX (http://​www.bitchx.com/​) can be ported. However, certain services can't coexist at the same time due to the nature of traffic, universal port allocation and usage. Pi-hole can run standalone as it has a DNS server (FTL) itself but it will conflict with the QORTecTor ​device’s dnsmasq service and DNS over HTTPS server. The solution is to obtain a secondary standalone minimal device with DNS leak prevention and Pi-hole ad blocking features.+*Limitations - There is virtually no limit to what features can be added.
