What is Privatix?
VPN allows traffic to be encrypted and routed through different locations, and while centralized VPN is available, it has its disadvantages.
From section 7.2 in our whitepaper:
VPN means Virtual Private Network, a secure tunnel between two or more devices. VPN creates a secure tunnel between your computer and the Internet, allowing you to surf the web anonymously from wherever you want. VPN also hides your IP address and changes it to another one. Classic VPN providers use dedicated servers around the world and standard VPN protocols like Openvpn, pptp, l2tp, sstp , etc. VPN shields your privacy, helps to avoid Internet censorship and encrypts your transferred data. The problem of centralized VPN is DPI-based blockers (utilized in China) and data server’s IPs that detect when you use a VPN. VPNs based on the Privatix Network will allow you to surf between millions of exit nodes at the best available speed and use advanced modified VPN connections that are undetectable by DPIs. If you choose to be a peer in the network, you will be able to pay for it by sharing your traffic with other users. If you get more traffic than you give, you will have to pay the difference and vice versa, as the difference will be paid to you.
