Skycoin Delivers Net Neutrality Solution with Skyminer

Bitcoin Press Release: Energy-efficient hardware for blockchain internet is here.

30th of January, San Francisco – Skycoin has announced the release of Skyminer with 300 units set to ship worldwide. The energy-efficient miner is a critical piece to deploying Skywire –- a secure, decentralized mesh-internet –- and actualizing a user-controlled internet unaffected by a net neutrality repeal.

Hardware for the New Internet

The custom-built Skyminer is meticulously designed and configured to deliver maximum power and performance, without huge energy needs. In addition to hardware specialized to act as a VPN, its configurations are as follows:

– Custom PCB boards
– 16-port OpenWRT router
– 16 GB RAM (32 x 512MB DDR3)
– ARM Cortex ™-A53 CPU
– 8 x 16GB Class-10 A1 Micro SD
– Hexa-core Mali450 GPU
– LAN Bandwidth: 8 x 100Mbps
– Gigabit ethernet, 8+1 port switch
– 64-bit Linux (Alpine Linux)

Skyminer Powers Skywire

Skywire provides a blockchain-based, decentralized internet that users can browse securely and privately. When users forward traffic and bandwidth on Skywire via the Skyminer, they earn Skycoin. When users need to access the bandwidth, they pay Skycoin. This setup incentivizes users to power Skywire’s peer-to-peer environment.

To access Skywire, a user runs a node. Like Tor, nodes forwarding traffic only see the previous and next hop. Unlike Tor, the experience is faster, more secure, and users get paid to run their node.For users sick of battling corporate ISPs and corrupt coins, the Skycoin project is the solution.

About Skycoin

Designed by original Bitcoin and Ethereum developers, Skycoin is a 360-degree privacy protocol powering the new internet. By enabling users to contribute to network resources, earn benefits, and make decisions, the Skycoin project is an internet revolution for users, by users.

SkyCoin Signs Partnership with Bitcoin PR Buzz Agency

Bitcoin Press Release: Skycoin, the third-generation cryptocurrency of alternative P2P project Skywire, have announced they will be signing a strategic partnership with Bitcoin PR Buzz.

January 12th, 2018 –  To those who follow us, you will know we have used BPRB (Bitcoin PR Buzz) multiple times in the last year. As we move into 2018, we are very excited to make this an official partnership, paving the way forward for both parties.

Skycoin, is amongst one of the oldest crypto projects in development, and has its infrastructure rooted in the basic concepts of bitcoin. What makes skycoin unique, is its completely original codebase featuring a state of the art, and revolutionary consensus algorithm. Skycoins algorithm, named “Obelisk”, contains none of the PoW/Pos similarities of most other altcoins, thereby eliminating the need for miners and operating on a basis of trust.

The Skycoin Team had this to say:

“Skycoin is the key to unlocking a new, huge, private internet, and BPRB is the partner to take us to our secure future”

This partnership provides Skycoin the advantage of our name, news and distribution channels, allowing announcements in innovation to be distributed more frequently, and to a larger audience. BPRB’s partnership with Skycoin will allow for the nurturing and growth of Skycoins web presence in mainstream media outlets as well as technological circles. With Skycoin’s announcements, road map and recent partnership with BPRB, the future looks bright for Skycoin this year.
