What is the Sentinel Network?
The Sentinel Network is a decentralized, blockchain-based node marketplace where anyone can buy and sell bandwidth, enabling multiple VPN providers access to its network offering users enhanced privacy and security through a more diversified, robust, and competitive framework than other VPN applications and bandwidth providers.
Anyone can build a dVPN application on top of Sentinel that is more secure and trustworthy than any centralized VPN application.
What are Sentinel dVPN apps?
Sentinel dVPN apps are applications that provide access to decentralized Virtual Private Network (dVPN) services through a peer-to-peer bandwidth marketplace on the Sentinel Network, offering enhanced privacy and anonymity, resilience against censorship, transparent and trustless operations using blockchain technology, and a community-driven economic model, all while being open-source for continuous community-led improvement and transparency.

What is the difference between a VPN and a dVPN?
A traditional VPN is a centralized service operated by a single entity, which can create vulnerabilities and require users to trust the provider with their data. In contrast, a dVPN (decentralized Virtual Private Network) operates on a decentralized, distributed network of nodes run by various individuals or entities, enhancing privacy and security. dVPNs offer greater resistance to censorship and targeted attacks due to their decentralized structure and often use blockchain technology for added transparency and trust. Unlike the subscription-based model of traditional VPNs, dVPNs can feature a peer-to-peer marketplace for buying and selling bandwidth, providing a dynamic and potentially more economical approach to secure internet access.
dVPN applications also maintain a standard of being open-sourced, offering clear visibility into the back-end architecture and establishing a trustless relationship.

What is the $DVPN coin?
The $DVPN coin is the native cryptocurrency of the Sentinel Network, serving primarily as a utility medium within its decentralized VPN (dVPN) ecosystem. It functions as the transactional currency for accessing and paying for VPN services, incentivizing network participants by rewarding those who provide bandwidth. Additionally, the $DVPN coin may play a role in the governance of the Sentinel Network, allowing coin holders to participate in decision-making processes. As with other cryptocurrencies, its value is subject to market dynamics and can be traded on various cryptocurrency exchanges. $DVPN’s integration into the Sentinel blockchain ensures secure, transparent, and efficient transactions within the network.
$DVPN also acts as a form of revenue share as $DVPN stakers earn 20% of all payments made to dVPN nodes for bandwidth services.

What is the sentinel growth DAO?
The Sentinel Growth DAO is a community initiative comprised of ardent supporters of Sentinel with the goal of educating newcomers, creating an environment that’s more fun than formal, organizing group gaming events to help spread awareness of Sentinel on a less formal basis. , but ultimately using community pooled funds raised from network activity to spend on promoting and supporting the continued success and growth of decentralized VPN on the Sentinel Network.

What are sentinel Nodes?
Sentinel nodes form the backbone of the Sentinel Network by providing decentralized bandwidth for its VPN services, enhancing privacy and security. Operated by individuals globally and incentivized with rewards like $DVPN tokens, these nodes ensure a resilient, distributed network that resists censorship and promotes secure, community-driven internet access.
Currently community members can host dVPN nodes that support either the Wireguard or the V2Ray protocol.
