Sentinel goes live to offer decentralized virtual private networks

Leveraging the blockchain to disrupt the VPN industry

Advantages of using a dVPN

  • Provable end-to-end encryption between an internet user and the server that they seek to access information from. A dVPN would achieve this via open-source transparency and application verification integrity systems.
  • Proof of bandwidth. A dVPN would have a bandwidth provability system, which would ensure server providers over the right bandwidth for the agreed compensation in a provable and trustless way.
  • Proof of no logs. A dVPN would offer evidence that application developers do not collect any information, regarding an internet user’s browsing activities or data history.
  • Distributed exit nodes. A dVPN would feature a robust network of exit nodes owned by distributed users that don’t know the identities of internet users.
  • Distributed relay network. This feature would help minimize the threats of malicious characters and ensure internet users remain anonymous to exit node hosts.
