What is Fry Foundation?

Fry Foundation is a DePIN crypto project that utilize their Fry miner hardware to incentivize users to collect data and earn the Fry token. Fry foundation is looking to become the network of networks with all the data collection that can be gathered sold and utilized by companies. And since they offer such a broad selection of miners within different fields and have the cheapest miner devices I believe they will be able to perform very well. So I think they have a good shoot of becoming large within the new field of Depin.

What is the Fry miner?

The Fry miner is a crypto miner made by the Fry Foundation that earns the $FRY token. These mining devices are plug & and play and are easy to setup. However, the setup process varies a lot since they have everything from weather station miners to camera miners that work in different ways. Users who setup and use their miners receive crypto tokens as a reward simply for keeping them up and running. Fry Foundation are also using refurbished hardware parts for some of their miners in order to try and minimize E-waste. All fry miners are silence and produce no noise.

What are DePIN miners?

The new term “DePIN” stands for Decentralized Physical Infrastructure Networks. DePIN miners are devices that collect data for decentralized networks. The data collected will ultimately be used within the networks for real world applications. Regarding Fry Foundation, the data will eventually be sold to companies and utilized. The emerging field of DePIN is growing fast since companies have realised that they can utilize the people themselves to setup infrastructure, which makes the building and maintaining aspect of networks a lot cheaper.

To get the summary I would recommend to see this youtube video were I show exactly how many of each sort of miner you can have in the same location. Also, further down on this page under “Fry miner earnings” you can also see the number of devices you can have per location.

What is the difference between the Fry miner and the Fry BYOD licence?

The Fry hardware miners are the devices that Fry Foundation sell on their website. These are plug and play devices that come with everything you need to start mining the fry token. The Fry BYOD licences are lifetime digital licences you buy for $105 that enables you to make a DIY fry miner/turn one of your own computers into a fry miner. The difference between a Fry hardware miner and a Fry BYOD licence miner is that the fry hardware miner earns double the amount of fry tokens.

Can I use one Fry licence on multiple devices?

You can only use one Fry licence on one device. Running multiple licences on one device could end up with your IP address and miners becoming banned and unable to earn anything. So no, you can not use one Fry licence on multiple devices.

How to buy the Fry BYOD Licence?

To buy and setup your own Fry BYOD licence miner you can see this video here where I show how. A Fry BYOD licence cost $105 dollars and you currently buy a licence using 50% Algorand tokens and 50% Fry tokens. You perform the licence purchase on this site. To make the purchase you need to connect your algorand wallet to the site. I utilize the Pera wallet, which is a free smart phone app wallet for the algorand blockchain.

The cost range from $150 to $500 and are thereby the cheapest crypto miners on the market. Anyone can also make the fry miners 35% cheaper by using the fry discount code: nordic

Fry miner discount code

The Fry discount code “nordic” makes the fry miners 35% cheaper. The code also works for all their items.

Fry Miners electric cost

The power use of the fry miners varies a lot since they got 24 different kinds of miners. However, all of their miners are low powered miners that use little power. I would say that the highest power consuming fry miner is probably around 10-20 watt costing about 1-2 dollars per month to run. But most of their devices are probably using less than 10 watts of power. This makes these low powered miners cheap to run.

Are the Fry miners difficult to setup?

Fry Foundation have many different crypto miners that varies in setup. However, all of the miners come plug and play with everything you need to set them up. The average setup time for me is about 15 minutes per miner.

Are there video setup tutorials on the Fry Miners?

Here are a few setup tutorial videos for the fry miners.
Satellite and Bandwidth miner
Decibel miner
Camera miner
Weather miner

How long time does it take to register my fry miner?

The registrations are performed manually by Fry Foundation and can therefore only be processed during weekdays. The registration can take between 2-7 weekdays to go though. You will see it go through by your miner starting to receive fry tokens.

How to verify Fry miner

To verify your fry miner you first go to the Fry Foundation website. Under “Hardware miner resources” you find the tab “Verify your miner here”. There you connect your algorand wallet you have your miner on and click verify. You also verify your BYOD licence miners there as well.

How long is Fry miner shipping?

The shipping time varies for each fry miner. On the Fry foundation website for each miner it displays the shipping time in the ribbon.

What wallet do I use for the fry miner?

The Fry token run on the algorand blockchain and thus we need an algorand wallet to where our fry crypto rewards can be sent to. I am using the pera wallet which is a free algorand wallet that I use through my smart phone. I start by creating a new wallet and save the seed phrases (these are needed for the miner setup). In all kinds of algorand wallets you need some algorand tokens to perform actions with. So it’s good to keep atleast 10 algorand tokens in the wallet.

Can I have multiple fry miners on the same wallet?

You can not have multiple fry miners on the same wallet. For each new fry miner you need a seperate algorand wallet. So what I do is that I create several accounts on the same algorand pera wallet, so that I don’t need to login/logout each time to handle a miner. There is a “plus sign” in the pera wallet where you can select “Create new account”. For each account you get a separate wallet address and seed phrase. Save and store each seed phrase since you need it for the miner setup and to keep your crypto safe.

How to add the Fry token to my wallet?

In the pera wallet, in an account, you can click on a “plus sign” next to where it says “manage”. There you can add new crypto tokens. In there you can search for the “FRY” token. Select the FRY token that have the following code: 924268058. That is the Fry token contract address verifying it’s the actual real Fry token.

What is the Fry token contract address?

Fry contract address: 924268058

Where can I sell the FRY token?

The Fry token can be sold on the decentralized Exchange Tinyman or Vestige or using the Pera wallet. On these exchanges you swap the fry token either for algorand (ALGO) tokens or USDC. In the pera wallet you can use the swap feature to swap Algorand tokens or USDC into Fry tokens back and forward.

How to stake Fry tokens

You can stake Fry crypto coins on the following website cometa. There you can choose to stake your Fry tokens either flexible, meaning you can withdraw them whenever you want, or you can lock them up for different amount of days. A longer lock up period usually gives the stake a higher APY% and therefore higher interest from your stake. To perform the stake you connect your pera wallet to the site and perform the stake through that.

How to provide Fry token liquidity

You can provide Fry liquidity on both tinyman and cometa. On Tinyman there are liquidity pools for both FRY/ALGO and FRY/USDC. The trading pair with the highest trading volume is FRY/ALGO that brings in the most fees and thereby the highest APY% from providing liquidity. Make sure you read up on what it means to provide liquidity and impermanent loss before you provide any liquidity.

Fry dual mining

You can dual mine the fry token with a few other crypto miners. Here you can see a video tutorial on how to dual mine Fry with the ETCMC Node. Here is another video on how to dual mine Fry with the GEODNET miner. There are also further potential to dual mine using the IOTX pebble, WeatherXM Miner and Onocoy miner.

Fry token multipliers

The multiplier is a factor that affect the fry token earnings you get with your miners. The multiplier can be based on factors like data accuracy, uptime, bandwidth provided and more. Another multiplier that becomes active is when the Fry token price goes below 1 cent in value. Then the multiplier becomes 2x all miner earnings. If the fry token price would decrease even further and add another “0” to the price, an additional 1.5 multiplier would be added.

What are the minimum system requirements for the Fry BYOD licence software/DIY miner?

To run the Fry BYOD licence software on your own computer you need the following minimum system requirements for it to work. Windows 10/11, 4 Gb ram and 1 Gb free disk space. The minimum specs are therefore very low to run a DIY miner.

Fry Foundation Whitepaper

You can read more about Fry Foundation, the fry miners and how they work in the Fry whitepaper.

Fry token airdrop

Fry Foundation will be having a Fry token airdrop to all users who have verified their miners or BYOD licence running devices. I therefore think that the more devices you have verified perhaps you will earn more from the airdrop, but that is not clear yet. See above on this page on how to verify your miner.

Which Fry miners should I get?

They have so many different miners with different use cases. Anyone can choose a miner if they want to both utilize it for its earnings and it’s intended use case, such as the weather station miner for measuring weather parameters. The easiest miners to setup and use I think are the satellite or decibel miners. These two are pretty much plug and play. After that comes the camera miners. Some miners do however cost more and others and earn more than others. The current highest earning miners, or rather nodes, are the fry nodes that will be released Q3 or Q4 2024. So it depends on what you are looking for.

  1. Can i buy i BOYD license to make my stationary pc a bandwidth Miner if i just ordered a $FRY Reward Decentralization Node. can i run them both when it arrives?

    • Hi,
      You can have how many different kinds of Fry miners as you want, as long as you stay under the limit per location per miner type.
      Adding a BYOD to your stationary computer can work, however that would need to be on 24/7. That’s why running Fry BYOD licences on mini-computers is most often seens since they don’t require that much power.

  2. Hello NordicCrypto.

    For example, can I buy 5 HP elitedesk PCs, and buy 5 “indoor satellite miner” licences and start mining after a few days ? Can I do this ?

    Is the price of the licence the same for each miner ?

    Is there a discount code for buying a licence ?

    Thank you for your answer.

    Reply
    • Hi Gilles,
      You are correct in that you can get 5 of your own computers and install fry licences on them. You need to install one fry licence on each computer. Each licence costs $105 dollars. 50% is paid in Algo tokens and the other 50% is paid in fry tokens.
      There is not discount code for the licences.

      • Hey, I have a cheap amazon laptop. Can I use that to set up the node, decibel, or satellite miner, than put my laptop away? I don’t need a desktop running with my miner right? Thanks!

        Reply
        • Hi Dennis! Good question.
          With the Fry miners you need a pc or laptop that is able to run 24/7. So you would need to have your laptop always running for it to work. If that works for you then it should be no issues with using a laptop for a Fry BYOD licence miner.
          Best of luck! /Nordic

  3. Your videos on fry and dual mining have caught my attention but has raised a question I don’t see answered anywhere else.
    You talk about dual mining on a ETCMC with the GPS miner, could this also be done with the indoor decibel miner or other similar BYOD addition?
    Is it possible to have both a GPS and indoor decibel miner run on the ETCMC node, thus triple mine?

    Reply
    • Hi Simon,
      Great question! You are correct in that the dual mining on the ETCMC Node can be done with a Fry BYOD indoor decibel miner.
      You can not however have two different Fry miner additions to one and the same device, only one is allowed per device.
      That is why you can not either add a Fry BYOD licence to the Fry hardware miners.

  4. I set up a byod miner as a bandwidth miner, got the licence, but when I try to verify it says no device connected. On my fry foundation dashboard it shows that i have 1 unverified miner – is there a quick fix for this? In pera i can see some algorand payments, so something is working.

    • Hi Ed,
      There seems to be some issues currently with the verifying of fry miners. We have until 28th October to get our devices verified so Fry Foundation will have plenty of time to fix any bugs with the verifying process.
      Hopefully we will see it start working soon!
