Mysterium Network is building a decentralised virtual private network (VPN). In the last few months we have transitioned from our Testnet 1.0 to Testnet 2.0. You can dive deeper into what these updates have meant for our network in our latest product update.
Following our upgrade to Testnet 2.0, we have seen organic growth of Mysterium node network – with a 1000 stable nodes and counting to date.
This has meant a need to review our residential IP bounty program, as we hope to extend the opportunity of earning in Mysterium Network to more regions around the world.
Attention all Mysterium Node Runners
We are updating the Mysterium Residential IP bounty to offer more flexibility as we go grow our node network. This will mean quick and iterative changes to our Residential IP bounty.
This begins with an introduction of a cap of bounty rewards to 60,000 MYST/ month for the residential IP bounty program.
We will also be reviewing growth of Mysterium node network monthly and making amendments to the regions included alongside with maximum payouts per node. Firstly we are increasing the amount of nodes who will receive payouts in our residential IP bounty from 250 to 400. This applies to node runners in the US, UK, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, and Australia.
For the month of March we are excited to announce addition of Canada and India into our residential IP bounty program! This has been a long awaited region in our community and we hope to see consistent growth of node runners offering service from the region.
The following are the main changes to Mysterium Node bounty programs:
Residential IP bounty
Maximum earnings of 150 MYST / Mysterium Node
400 nodes will earn in total
New region introduced: Canada
Global IP bounty
Maximum earnings of 40 MYST / Mysterium Node
4 nodes / region in Global IP bounty

We are inching closer and closer to the much anticipated Mysterium Mainnet. With this we will seek to implement the following: Unified Node Pricing We will seek to remove manual price selection and unify pricing in Mysterium Network based on region, type of node, quality of service and the supply and demand coefficients in that region. More detail on this coming soon.
