The problem of the internet today is the growing efficiency of government’s eavesdropping and censorship capabilities across most of the world wide web. The denial of the basic principle of network neutrality has been ruthlessly defended (even denied) by the Chinese, Iranian, Australian, German, and American people among others. The government firewalls are growing increasingly efficient and thereby threatening the security of private data online. The complexity of today’s technical solutions prevents us from using reliable encryption methods to protect data of neither ordinary people nor small enterprises.
The ideal choice to bypass government restriction is to use Virtual Private Networks. These networks use softwares to create a secure, encrypted connection between your home PC and the servers operated by your VPN service provider. This means that all your internet traffic will pass through a protected channel that prevents even your service provider from seeing your traffic until you exit the channel. I am no cryptography expert but even I can’t fully trust my personal data to centralized VPN service which might be compelled by the government to disclose my internet activities.
Is there an alternative solution? Let’s consider Privatix, the unique internet solutions company, with its token sale set on October 19, 2017. The platform, founded by developers responsible for the products like Temp-Mail.org and centralized VPN, is all about ensuring the freedom of the internet, online cybersecurity and the rights of individual and businesses to online privacy protection.
The Privatix network is a decentralized, fully autonomous peer-to-peer Virtual Private network, based on blockchain technology that allows users to share their internet broadband with other network members.
Privatix is not the only internet censorship solution in the world today. However, a majority of VPNs are governed by a centralized body and are vulnerable to Internet Service Provider’s (ISP) control. Also, the fact that these VPNs have been there for a while allows them to charge high prices for their services which is mostly over-rated. On the other hand, the decentralized nature of Privatix makes it less vulnerable to ISP control.
Privatix being a product by industry insiders provides solutions to overcome some of the false statements given by other VPN providers about log-keeping, overcharging, user data monetization, unclear billing policies, and the incredible margins that are siphoned off for marketing, advertising, among other things.
At the time when people are seriously considering whether the VPN industry is really protecting their privacy, the Privatix network presents a conceptually new solution, designed to benefit ordinary internet users, developers, and online businesses. It will feature reduced price tags and margins in the VPN consumer market, eliminating the middleman and enabling people to share their spare broadband while profiting from it.
