The pre-release Orchid app now available
Download the Orchid app today for a local traffic flow analysis of your phone's internet connection with no external servers and no third parties.
As we build towards a decentralized, tokenized marketplace where users can construct their own custom VPN configurations and privacy services (as described in our), the first feature offers under-the-hood introspection into your internet connection.
Preserving the natural internet
Humans naturally crave space to freely express their agency. No other place on Earth has the potential for all humans to collaborate and access opportunities than the web that connects us all.
Orchid is building a suite of Open Source tools and cryptographic protocols developed and run by people who want the internet to extend our natural human freedom, not curtail it.
We believe that by eliminating centralization, rewarding network contributors, and harnessing the power of blockchain, we can preserve an open and accessible internet.
Utilizing the power of Ethereum’s ecosystem allows Orchid to operate without a central authority. The app runs local on your device—not through a server—and no data is ever stored.
Orchid is 100% open source software, enabling the sharing of ideas, community auditing, debugging, and, of course, contributions.
Peer to peer
Orchid clients and network providers transact directly, with no middlemen, creating an open, transparent, and low cost marketplace for bandwidth and VPN connectivity.
