Please note: like most trading venues, we display the current mid-market rates in our price charts. When you trade, you get the current bid or ask price depending on whether you are buying or selling. There is always a slight difference between the mid-market and the current bid or ask prices. This is a natural result of how Exchange order books work.
Digital currencies are very high risk. Do not invest money you can’t afford to lose. Please consider the suitability of crypto for your individual position before trading.
About Orchid (OXT)
Orchid (OXT) was launched in December 2019 as the first peer-to-peer network for matching incentivizsed VPN-like service providers with online-privacy-seeking users.
A San Francisco-based “new internet” startup, Orchid Labs has built a surveillance-free layer atop the internet, like a ring-fenced liberty zone that's decentralised, scalable and sustainable. This one-fell-swoop dynamic is achieved via an optimally aligned bandwidth marketplace where node providers, staking tokens, relay their VPN services over the Ethereum network, matching supply with demand, as needed, users’ paying as they go.
The network features components designed to work together: the Orchid app, the Orchid VPN client that runs in the app, and the Orchid digital currency, OXT, together abetting an integrated, anonymously experienced internet. Orchid recently added a Chainlink “Oracle” (think of it as an animated, talking switchboard) that can sample providers’ bandwidth pricing across the network.
Among Orchid’s five founders are an eclectic mix of venture capitalists and digital developers with ties to big banks.
