Loki is a Privacy Project.
Privacy is having the agency to decide when you reveal personal information. It is a particularly valuable quality today, when the collection and storage of personal data is taking place at unprecedented levels in history.
Loki provides the means to transact and communicate privately and anonymously, using the decentralised nature of blockchain technology to create new methods of interacting with the internet.
Using multiple forms of cryptography, third parties can't see the sender, recipient, or amount of any Loki transaction. Only you get to decide when you reveal your private transaction data.
Loki is powered by a network of self-regulating Service Nodes, which are paid a part of the block reward to run. They route information privately through the network and help share the blockchain to users and other nodes.
Using the Service Nodes' off chain capabilities, Loki is a system that provides you with the ability to talk and browse with peace of mind.
Lokinet - A Blockchain Enforced Mixnet
The Loki cryptocurrency creates a network of Service Nodes who are paid to propagate the blockchain, process transactions, and route traffic and messages on Lokinet.
Lokinet is a new type of mixnet that uses market-based Sybil attack resistance and onion routing to create a new private tunnel to the internet. Users of Lokinet will be able to access normal websites and SNApps without revealing their IP address.
SNApps are traditional web applications that sit inside Lokinet. As the host’s IP is never revealed, this provides great protection for the development of censorship resistant social media, marketplaces, information sharing sites, and other apps that depend on user and server anonymity.
