And receive recognition through ATOR
ATOR strengthens Tor with on-chain rewards. Contribute to internet anonymity as a Tor relay and receive ATOR through the Proof-of-Uptime protocol.
ATOR aims to grow the number of live Tor relays, strengthening the network to accommodate more volume
Tor relays, including ATOR's own hardware, can earn the ATOR token for encrypting and transmitting packets
Relay registration is built for anonymity. Delegation means registration can be gas-less and does not expose IP.
Through Immediate Tor Interoperability
Existing ToR Nodes
Incumbent Tor nodes can be whitelisted into ATOR Proof-of-Uptime.
PoU enables whitelisted nodes to mine ATOR by doing what they already do.
The ATOR router will connect you to Tor on any network, including public WiFi
The ATOR Relay
Our relay hardware is immediately interoperable with PoU rewards and allows non-technical users to contribute to Tor and mine ATOR
Your Hardware Or
The ATOR Router
The ATOR router allows users to connect their consumer devices to Tor through a hotspot-like product.
