QORTector & QORTable Overview

Qortal allows the average computer to operate as a full node, although a cheaper and revolutionary concept has emerged: the QORTector and QORTable. The QORTector current is our Gen 2 hardware device model that utilizes RaspberryPi boards with a custom kernel that operates on an average 5W power consumption - the equivalent to charging a phone! Comparing that to the dreaded power-hungry ASIC miners of Bitcoin, it becomes apparent how incredible the options are for running a node on the Qortal Network. For those who are technically inclined to do so, the images for the QORTectors are made available for download so you can purchase and configure your RaspberryPi on your own. Go to Raspberry Pi 4 to build your own!

Crowetic Hardware Development LLC is a company that 3 of the Qortal Founders put together as a third-party service to provide Qortal’s community with plug-n-play QORTectors if they wish to purchase: www.crowetic.com

For those interested, you can build your own QORTector (RaspberryPi 4 + SSD) by following the guide on the Raspberry Pi 4 page.

Crowetic Hardware Development is profit sharing 20% with Qortal’s development team and will be rolling over remaining profits to the company to help build inventory. The pricing is extremely fair with what these devices are really worth! Anyone who like to become an affiliate and team up should contact G Factor! QORTable coming soon!

The QORTable devices are USB flash drives with software that allows you to run the Qortal Core and UI without having to install anything on your computer. The core and UI run with your computer's CPU, but the database stays in the external drive, which means you can plug-n-play your Qortal Core and UI from one computer to another at any time! In other words, you can stop where you're at on one computer and pick up where you left off on another computer with QORTable! Although the current usage is around 20gb, the demand for more space will likely grow over time so the capacity of your flash drive is recommended to be 128gb if you are buying new. Otherwise, a used 32gb or 64gb will work at this time and can be upgraded later as needed. These have yet to be officially released! We appreciate your patience as we're tackling a LOT of things all at once both with the hardware and blockchain at large!
