Building physical infrastructure with PKT

PKT is a utility-focused cryptocurrency. The blockchain proof-of-work is designed to pay users who power the network's infrastructure. The PKT blockchain also interfaces directly with the PKT Network as payment rails. This seamless alignment between the high speed, encrypted networking and integrated peer-to-peer payments is the next-gen of the decentralized web.

Why build physical infrastructure for PKT?

Open Source

PKT is fully open source, fostering community collaboration and driving innovation in decentralized network technology.

Expand Global Mesh

Through mesh networking, nodes connect peer-to-peer, ensuring network resilience and decentralizing internet access.

Safe and Secure

Developers have access to PKT's high speed decentralized, VPN-based infrastructure, with end-to-end encryption and censorship resistance.

PKT Lightning Integration

In an upcoming release, PKT Lightning Network will deliver near-infinite transactions per second with near-instant settlement for limitless scalability.

Physical Infrastructure

PKT community members own and operate their own physical internet infrastructure. Anyone can support the network by running a PKT miner, setting up a cjdns node, building a website, or operating a PKT mining pool.
