Blockchain powered VPN project, Mysterium Network, launches app for Android - CryptoNinjas

The Times via thetimes.co.uk

Mysterium Network, an open source, not-for-profit foundation focused on internet privacy, security, and freedom, has announced the release of the Mysterium VPN app for Android, which is now available on the Google Play store. The app, which was released today and is also available for Windows and macOS, will allow users to participate in the world’s first decentralized blockchain VPN. Utilizing advanced cryptography, the protocol is designed as a general purpose VPN for running on embedded interfaces and supercomputers.

The app will allow a user to browse through and connect to available node countries in the decentralized network TestNet. Users can also help provide a secure connection to those in need by hosting their own VPN node. The launch of the Mysterium VPN app for Android marks a turning point for the company, as it aims to become a fully decentralized, peer-to-peer based, serverless node network, designed to provide privacy restoring techniques to its users with financial incentivization to its node Network achieves this goal by utilizing the Ethereum blockchain and smart contracts, as well as advancing their features with state channels, combined with censorship evasion protocols developed by the community acting as applications of the network.

“This is a significant milestone for us as our ambition is to build an infinitely scalable P2P architecture which will become the privacy layer for Web 3. This architecture is being built with decentralization at its core, with the end goal being that no single node has access to who you are and where your traffic is being directed,” Višinskis continued. Powered by the OpenVPN protocol, which is an open source commercial software that implements virtual private techniques to create secure point-to-point or site-to-site connections in routed or bridged configurations and remote access facilities, the Mysterium VPN app will also integrate the WireGuard protocol in future.
