Welcome to Crowetic Hardware Development! We are your home of the ORIGINAL QORTector devices.

The QORTector Device - Full Desktop Computer System

The QORTector device is the original device built specifically for The Qortal Network and its users. It is meant to alleviate the need for configuration and setup of a typical computer, and replace that with a simple 5W5V device (takes as much power as your phone charger) that is pre-configured and ready to run Qortal!

What is the QORTector?

The QORTector is a 5W5V (as much power as a phone charger) device, build specifically to run The Qortal Network and to be a node therein.

4 Processor Cores

The QORTector may be a palm-sized computer, but it has all the processing power you will need for all of your computing needs! With 4 ARM-based CPU cores, everything you would do on your normal computer is possible on the QORTector!

8GB of RAM

Not only will you have 4 CPU cores with your QORTector, you will also have 8GB of RAM, making multiple processes able to run smoothly at the same time, and having more than enough memory for your needs with anything you plan to run.

500GB SSD Fast Storage

We chose to configure the QORTector with a 500GB Samsung SSD for reliability, faster performance, and peace of mind for the end users. SD cards are okay for use in the Raspberry Pi, but they are known for failing after about a year if used for an OS drive.

100% Open Source Device

With an OS based on Debian Linux, hardware based on Raspberry Pi 4, and a custom Kernel built specifically for handling Qortal and cryptographic processing!
The QORTector is built 100% open source down to the hardware level! You will not have to worry about what exactly your OS is doing 'behind the scenes' as everything is fully transparent and able to be viewed and verified. Qortal's codebase is also 100% open source!

A Full Desktop Computer - Replace Your High Power Use Desktop Machine or Laptop!

With the QORTector, you are not JUST getting a Qortal node device, you're getting a FULL DESKTOP COMPUTER with everything the typical computer user needs for their normal computer usage. Web browsing, email services, and any online service can be used (with more security than Windows or Mac) and multiple other features are included by default (or can be installed after purchase).

There is even an emulator image that includes emulators to run multiple games from PS2! The flexibility of the QORTector will astound you! Choose from the multiple OS image options available to purchase: Russcade, Plumbus, and Plasma Desktop to name a few!

Every QORTector device, regardless of which base level image is installed, is capable of running desktop programs, web software, web browsing, HD video streaming, and more. Literally anything you can do on your existing computer, can be done on the QORTector! That along with the added cryptographic performance to ensure that the Qortal node will run flawlessly and any other cryptographic applications will run faster than a much higher power usage system.

Your Qortal Node

The QORTector is built specifically to be a Qortal Node - to run all of the software necessary for The Qortal Network. You will be able to do anything you can do on The Qortal Network, with a QORTector device. No need to install any software on your existing computers, and no need for large power consumption as is typical with most cryptocurrency mining. The QORTector is your Qortal Full Node with NO EFFORT NEEDED!

Multiple Case Colors Available

The QORTector case is custom built by the team at Crowetic Hardware Development with our 3D printers, and will be available in multiple colors: black, transparent green, transparent blue, galaxy grey, and more! Customers will soon be able to choose a color of their choice but at the moment, we will be shipping devices based on the colors we have ready.

Your 5 Watt QORT Minting Machine

Along with being a full node and giving you access to everything The Qortal Network has to offer, your QORTector can also be your QORT minting machine! Using the technology within The Qortal Network, and of course a sponsorship from another minter of level 5 or higher within Qortal, you can turn your QORTector into a QORT coin Minter! Let this low-powered device run for you 24/7 and earn QORT coins! All of this using only as much power as a phone charger!

Dual Monitor Support with 4K XHD Support

Even with the size of the QORTector, it can still support DUAL MONITORS at 4K resolution! The incredible advancement in technology allows the palm-sized Raspberry Pi 4 board to support dual monitors at up to 4K resolution, for those who prefer more desktop space on their systems.

Build or Buy - or BOTH - Your Choice

If you're technically inclined, we provide all of the components, images, and necessary software to build your own QORTector. We also sell the QORTector cases individually, so if you choose to build your own and want our custom case, you can do that as well! The concepts of Crowetic Hardware Development are directly in-line with the concepts of Qortal. Everything is 100% open source and available to the public. There is no licensing, no copyright, no patent, and no reason why everyone shouldn't have a QORTector in their home! Whether you build it yourself, or order one from us, we just want everyone to have this secure and powerful low-powered device, and be part of The Qortal Network!

Here at Crowetic Hardware Development, we feel that it is totally up to each individual how they conduct their own lives, including whether they purchase a device built by our company, or if they build it themselves. One should not be forced into buying a device from our company only. The device should be open source, and available to be built by anyone, OR available for purchase by us pre-configured. This is the philosophy we abide by here at Crowetic Hardware Development.

Orders Processed First Come First Served

Again due to limited initial availability, orders will be processed first come, first served. Those who have been on the waiting list will receive notification of the website and order processing being active, and whomever places their order first, will be served first.

Order processing may take up to 14 days depending on availability of hardware, until the company grows. Each device is TESTED PRIOR TO SHIPPING for 100% functionality and performance. This process requires a little extra time, but will ensure that every order will receive a perfectly functional device with no flaws or issues.

We will do our best to get every order out ASAP, but because we do not have a huge supply of devices sitting and waiting, each one is built as the hardware and time is available. It is our goal to eventually ship every device within 2-3 business days of order being made, however, it may take a little longer in certain circumstances. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we begin this exciting venture together for The Qortal Community!

Every order is guaranteed against DOA shipments, as every device is individually tested prior to shipment. Further details regarding the devices will be posted as they are decided by the company.

QORTable - The Portable Qortal Node

QORTable is a portable installation of both the Qortal Core and Qortal UI for use on existing systems (Windows, Mac, Linux). We are in the process of developing the QORTable cases for the USB SSDs we will use for QORTable. Pictures and buying information will come soon, stay tuned!
