Allocating network bandwidth is required to earn mining rewards.
The more connected nodes the faster the network becomes.
Meets the demands of network operators and infrastructure providers.
PKT is a blockchain enabling anyone to become an ISP. Users allocate bandwidth from their local internet connections and build a global, decentralized edge network, by the people, for the people.More Details
PKT is a Bitcoin fork, using PacketCrypt, the world's first bandwidth-hard proof of work. PKT is efficiently mined when miners collaborate, and collaboration requires bandwidth and CPU.More Details
Casual miners use idle CPU time to generate small messages called announcements and broadcasts them to block miners who pay for them.More Details
Dedicated miners use specialized equipment to secure the blockchain, but the PacketCrypt algorithm allows them to do less work if they have more announcements, effectively substituting bandwidth for CPU power.More Details
PKT is a native cryptocurrency based on Bitcoin code, making it Lightning Network ready from day one. It is not a token so there is no centralized issuer and no gas fees.More Details
PKT is a new blockchain that rewards users for contributing bandwidth to the network. Nodes broadcast what are called announcements (“anns”) across the network, and Blockminers gather those anns and put them into the blockchain.More Details
The network steward is an address which gets 20% of every new block-mine so that the developers can finance the building of mesh network technology. Unlike a premine or founder’s fee, the recipient of the network steward payout can be changed by a PoS vote.
There are several options for installing a PKT wallet. Certain wallets are suited for simple transactions while others are enabled for mining. The wallets currently supported include a terminal based command line wallet, the Electrum PKT wallet, and the PKT Zulu GUI wallet. A mobile wallet is also being developed and will be available soon.
