Source is a blockchain powered network for internet access. By incentivizing every internet connected individual to share their internet access, we’re not only increasing the connectivity of digital consumers worldwide but also minimizing the costs of wireless access and communication. We are currently building on top of the Ethereum blockchain, to power payments, authentication, and our registry of verified internet providers. We're building a platform to bring internet infrastructure into the modern age.
Source differentiates itself from current internet service providers by rewarding any individual who publicizes their wireless network and/or mobile device‘s access. Payments are directly transferred from a network guest to a Source Provider. Payments will be closely tied to the Source Network Token. We’re establishing a single standardized token capable of purchasing internet access from any Source Provider.
By downloading our Source App on all your devices, you always have internet access anywhere you are in the world. Save the hassle of buying a local SIM card or giving your credit card information to strangers. You’re automatically connected with Source.
Purchase one of our pre-configured routers or download and install our software package onto your own Linux router. Right out of the box, you’re automatically connected to our payment infrastructure.
Even with Source, you’re free to roam onto any other network. When you’re out of range of a Source Provider, we automatically connect you to the best available cellular or WiFi hotspot.
Wireless access deserves a pay-as-you-go model. Current pricing schemes are outdated, inefficient, and favor centralization of large monopolistic Internet service providers. We‘ve chosen a blockchain architecture to take advantage of payment channel technology to facilitate fast and scalable micropayments.
With this model, everyday consumers save money on their internet expenses. When you travel to a new Provider, you’re instantly able to use the remaining time in your account.
Wireless access is a commodity. That's why we created the Source Network Token. As our network grows, the Source Network Token will cover the entire globe.
We integrate directly with the most trusted payment providers. This allows you to deposit and withdraw from within the Source app. We integrate with Coinbase and any other wallet provider. It might seem a bit complicated, but we’ve worked out a solution so all you have to pay for is data.
Control the websites that your users are allowed to visit, and the content that they are able to download. We extend and expose, in an easy-to-use dashboard, the normal firewall settings on your router.
Traditional internet providers store your payment, personal, and browsing information. We treat our user data very seriously. With Source, all your data stays on your local devices. While the information used to get access to a Source router is stored locally on that router, the rest of your information is stored on your own device. This means your personal information like age, wallet information, browsing habits can’t be accessed by anyone but you.
