Bobcat Miner OTA Update - 01/20/2022

Jan 20, 2022 - Bobcat pushed the latest OTA update today at 04:30 PST.

The following updates occurred in this OTA:
Bobcat Miner Firmware updated to 1.0.2.75
This update was exclusively for Bobcat Firmware and features an optimization for the Diagnoser display that stabilizes the gap and block height, so that it does not inaccurately display large negative numbers when the blockchain height cannot be retrieved due to the API being unavailable.

POC Activities During an OTA

When a Bobcat firmware update takes place, there is no impact to PoC activities because the miner software is not affected and therefore continues running throughout the OTA update.

When a Helium miner software update takes place, the current miner running on the hotspot has to be stopped and replaced. These software updates will inevitably result in fluctuations in PoC activity and occasional downtime, but we will continue to work together with Helium to keep these fluctuations to an absolute minimum.
