The QORTector Gen 2 Series
The QORTector Gen 2 Series systems are based on the Raspberry Pi 4 Single Board Computer, and comes in 2 styles. The original QORTector Gen 2, and the QORTector-KB.
They are both essentially the same hardware, just in a different overall format. With the KB being built into a keyboard, and coming with a mouse. Both are FULL DESKTOP computers, and do not rely upon another computer in order to function. However, it is recommended to use the QORTector as only a node and minter for best performance.
Your 5V QORT Minter
Want to mint on the innovative Qortal Blockchain? Don’t have a computer you keep on all the time? The QORTector is your solution. With only as much power as the typical smart phone charger, you can run your Qortal Minting computer all day Using QORTector as a ‘standalone minter’ is the recommended use case.
Full Desktop OS
To run the QORTector, all you need is a monitor/keyboard/mouse (or just a monitor in the case of the KB). The QORTector is a standalone computer with a full desktop Operating System. NOTE – Do not expect the QORTector to run as fast as an intel/AMD CPU, but it can be a full desktop computer.
Open Source Ideals
The QORTector, along with everything else built by CHD, adheres to the principles of Open Source Development. Everything we build has every piece available publicly. If you are someone who likes to tinker, we provide everything necessary to build your own device, down to the 3D printer files for our custom case.
