Everyone Is a Web Host
SubstratumNode lets anyone become a web host on the decentralized internet. Unlike many technologies based on blockchain, SubstratumNode focuses on an intuitive user experience. Anyone can earn Substrate (SUB) by turning their computer into a host. All it takes is a web browser and a few clicks. Watch our UI Demo here.
Change the World
SubstratumNode is one of the components that forms the foundation of a decentralized web. The more nodes running in an area, the faster the content is delivered. Advanced artificial intelligence rules define what content is served by which node, including factors such as geolocation of the requester.
Compression and industry-leading encryption with our own cryptographic algorithms ensures the data you serve is as secure and lightweight as possible.
Make Money While You Sleep
During peak hours your node will run using minimal system resources. When you sign off for the day, SubstratumNode goes into high gear.
For each request your node serves you're paid a microtransaction from the host in Substrate (SUB). It's an incredibly simple way to earn passive income and make the world a better place through the decentralized web.
Our Settings Application provides an intuitive dashboard for customizing how hard your machine works day and night. It's designed to be as easy to use as possible, opening the doors for the general public to contribute and earn SUB.
Transparent to the Rest of the World
Places like China, Russia, and Iran impose heavy restrictions on what content citizens can interact with. This limits the free internet to VPN and Tor users, both of which require additional software to use. Upcoming laws threaten to deepen that divide by banning VPNs in even more countries.
Substratum requires no special software for the average viewer. All they have to do is open their browser and start surfing. It's the power of decentralized web on any browser, including Safari, Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and even mobile devices.
The issue of net neutrality is a huge topic in today's digital world. Censoring and regulating content means the people have no control over what they do and do not want on the internet, it's all a matter of corporate money changing hands.
With Substratum, any member has the ability to vote content up or down. This allows people to identify bad players like child pornography or terrorism and get them removed from the network. This is a truly decentralized internet and the next logical step in our digital journey.
Universal Crypto Payments
Substratum will soon provide CryptoPay as a simple to use API (much like PayPal) for any website to deploy. You'll be able to use your hard-earned cryptocurrencies on eCommerce sites all over the internet.
CryptoPay transactions are performed by converting the currency you wish to pay with into Substrate (SUB), then converting Substrate into whichever currency the online vendor wishes to receive as payment.
Long-term plans include a terminal that can be sold to brick and mortar businesses which would allow you to pay with your crypto at physical shops.
