Why Run a Mysterium Node?

Earn cryptocurrency while you sleep

Most of the internet you pay for goes to waste, sitting idle or completely unused. Sell VPN services with your spare bandwidth.

Fight censorship with a click

Help us reengineer the web so it’s censorship and surveillance-free. A residential IP network will rewire it to be safe and private by default.

No technical skills required

Our node application is easy – just a few clicks to get you up and running. Your personal dashboard tracks your earnings and contributions.

Hear from our node runners

I believe in a less restrictive internet where governments or ISPs are not the withholders of information. That seems to be even more important in current times where citizens risk being forcibly detained because they are trying to spread information to the rest of the world but are being tracked online by their government.

I heard about Mysterium via a facebook post, and having a keen interest in Raspberry Pi's and having a spare one available, thought I'd give it a go. I've never used cryptocurrency before, which was a learning curve, but have been happy with the project.

I feel a true duty to support others who are not as fortunate as I am to live in a democratic country (UK) where the internet is a free and open place to communicate. I’d used VPN's before, but I found myself wanting increased control of my personal data... a decentralised VPN was to me at the time unheard of.
