Welcome to Orchid!
The Orchid network enables a decentralized virtual private network (VPN), allowing users to buy bandwidth from a decentralized pool of service providers.
To do this, Orchid uses an ERC-20 utility token called OXT, a new VPN protocol for token-incentivized bandwidth proxying, and smart-contracts with algorithmic advertising and payment functions. Orchid's users connect to bandwidth sellers using a provider directory, and they pay using probabilistic nanopayments so Ethereum transaction fees on packets are acceptably low.
Our vision is to enable secure access to the internet for everyone, everywhere.
