Our pièce de censorship-résistance 

Mysterium VPN, 

the crown jewel of our network

Intro

This is how it all started. Mysterium is now a global, distributed network powered by everyday people. Network participants are incentivised to share their resources in a supply and demand marketplace, helping others gain access to the open internet. Our VPN app is the heart of the network, and our users are the soul which carries this philosophy to every corner of the world.

Problem

The greatest invention in modern history, the internet is becoming increasingly fragmented, controlled, censored and broken. It is governed by a handful of powerful businesses, with privately owned servers that power the web for everyone. Government censorship denies entire populations of their basic human rights, such as freedom of information and the press.

A regular VPN is just a band-aid fix for what is a deeply flawed infrastructural problem. We believe the internet should be publicly owned infrastructure - and blockchain technology can make that happen.

Solution

The Mysterium dVPN was the first use case and validation of our protocol. We wanted to create a dapp which encapsulates the ethos and power of decentralised technologies. Permissionless by design, trustless by default, more censorship-resistant by the day.

As a hybrid of Tor and a regular VPN, Mysterium is built on the WireGuard and OpenVPN protocols. Instead of paying a regular VPN, users pay peers within the distributed network to connect to their residential IP address. Thanks to its P2P architecture, it’s technologically impossible for Mysterium to log any user activity. Our uniquely developed micropayments system (Hermes Protocol), enables pay-as-you-go transactions, by seconds or by data transferred.

Impact

We have over 100,000 Monthly Active Users, connecting to over 3800+ nodes worldwide. Our community is growing fast, with users in places like China, Iran, Nigeria and Russia.
But our dVPN is just one of the many tools and solutions that can help piece together the world wide Web 3.0


The Mysterium network and protocol is our contribution, and we’re inviting developers and innovators of all stripes to come build with us. Much of our success relies on this shared vision and collaboration between teams and projects. Together we can redistribute control over the web and place users once again at the top of the digital pyramid.
