Sentinel, an interoperable networking layer for distributed services, today announced a new partnership with StrongBlock, a Nodes-as-a-Service (NaaS) provider. Sentinel is a blockchain framework for building decentralized VPN (dVPN) applications.
StrongBlock is a trailblazer in monetizing node operation, utilizing DeFi protocols and NFTs to incentivize the node community. It provides tools allowing anyone, even a non-technical user, to launch blockchain nodes and be a part of the blockchain ecosystem while earning rewards for running them.
With a community of over 55,000 StrongBlock nodes running through more than 8,300 operators; this partnership will be another step in truly scaling Sentinel’s decentralized VPN. In contrast, existing centralized VPN competitors fail to provide this scale and are at a high risk of a single point of failure.
StrongBlock + Sentinel
Led by blockchain and enterprise software veterans CEO David Moss, CTO Brian Abramson, and CPO Corey Lederer; StrongBlock is the first and only cross-chain protocol to reward nodes for supporting the infrastructure of their blockchain.
The STRONG protocol and node reward mechanism integrated with NFT token incentives, lays the foundation for stronger, more secure, and economically sound blockchain networks.
Sentinel’s network consists of nodes that share their bandwidth and which decentralized VPNs and other such services are built. The purpose of the Sentinel ecosystem is to empower universal access to the internet in a trusted and provable manner.
Besides this news today, Sentinel offers an opportunity to be part of its ecosystem through its Ambassador Program; inviting like-minded individuals from across the globe to participate, grow the network and build communities.
