Orchid is a decentralized bandwidth marketplace
Buyers use the Orchid app to get protection from snooping ISP's, unblock websites cutoff by firewalls, and for many other privacy benefits. Sellers receive payments in real-time as they provide service and stake OXT to compete for service requests. Orchid Technologies charges no fees, and the community maintains the Open Source software that powers the entire ecosystem. Try it out!

All of Orchid's code is Open Source and freely available to download on GitHub. Use of Orchid's source code is governed by the AGPL copyleft Open Source license. The Orchid community develops code "in the open" by continually pushing changes that anyone can see on GitHub and tagging releases as appropriate.
Orchid brings leading providers together through a unique, decentralized privacy marketplace. Because there are more (and more widely distributed) servers available, the user's data has more possible paths to choose from. This randomness makes user information more difficult for would-be trackers and hackers to exploit and the service is much more resilient.
Unblock Website & Apps
Use the Orchid VPN to break through firewalls and access blocked content. Using Orchid you can access the open Internet and bypass restrictions placed by your ISP or network administrator.
Orchid has a WireGuard and Open VPN client built into the app. Using Orchid is possible with your own VPN server setup ala Streissand or other home grown solutions - even other paid VPN services. Furthermore, Orchid allows you to string multiple types of VPN servers together, which has interesting privacy properties.
In a world where one assumes the Cambridge Analytica scandal is merely the tip of the iceberg when it comes to data abuse, it’s easy to see the project’s appeal.
This is what the future of VPN tech looks like. And you gotta see it.
Orchid’s mission is to build open-source software that keeps the Internet open and accessible — a natural resource for everyone, everywhere.
