Mysterium Network has raised a whopping 68,629 ETH ($14,358,975 USD) in under 45 minutes in their Initial Coin Offering (ICO) today.
Mysterium Network aims to be fully decentralized, peer to peer based and serverless VPN  node network, designed to provide privacy restoring techniques to its users and financial incentivization to its node operators (providers). It will work by utilizing blockchain technology such as Ethereum, smart contracts advancing their features with state-channels and evolving mechanisms of promises, combined with censorship evasion protocols developed by the community acting as applications of the network.

Development of Mysterium Network is spread out into distinct phases starting with Phase I and Phase II. Each phase is further divided into several internal stages.

Please refer to https://mvp.mysterium.network. Ubuntu and Devian versions for Node are available to download and install.

Cost ot Mysterium services will be defined by the node operators. Since this will create a phenomenon known as ‘perfect competition’ – we expect prices to be significantly lower than of current VPN providers.

  1. MOE Farms as an ICO, what are your thoughts?

    The MOE Farms® business model is complex with a lot
    of moving parts; however, at its essence, it is a farm of farms; food farm,
    feed farm, server farm, fuel farm, energy farm… The synergies and
    cross-pollinations among the profit centers and the incremental margin
    contributions from effective vertical and horizontal integration of the entire
    transaction chain cycle, from raw materials to finished retail packaged
    specialty products, creates the ‘Stacked Margin Effect’, the hallmark of an
    Apex Class Competitor.

    The MOE Farms® business model effectively and efficiently addresses a homogeneous, pervasive and systemic problem, affecting highly motivated and affluent customer groups and end users, with a smart, healthy, connected and elegant solution. Durable, high-margin competitive advantages, unassailable proprietaries, authentic and unique marketing messages, and branding collateral.

    Unique to the Data Caster Labs (data center) design is the repurposing of CO2
    produced as a byproduct of power generation along with data center waste heat,
    producing renewable Bio-Diesel back to E Q Power, in-turn providing electricity
    to data center operations. CO2 is also incorporated into a proprietary
    data center cooling system, creating the first commercially viable and
    scalable, grid independent, sub-zero emissions, GHG mitigated, carbon negative,
    ecologically balanced, closed loop data center eco-system with high-speed
    data transmission.

    Beyond Organics is not some clever marketing gimmick, it is an unquestionably authentic
    restoration of the symbiotic relationship between healthy soil and the vitality
    of our food, simply put, “life is in the soil, death in the dirt”.
    Integrity through vertical integration, old-school Agra-science and intelligent
    technologies in synchronicity with mother nature.

    Better than gold; as it has a yield & it produces whatyou will be trading that coin (assuming you have electricity and internet) gold& silver for (food, water, electricity, fuel, security, etc.) if/when the SHTF. This is what a real SHTF plan looks, smells, feels & tastes like.
