Bitcoin (BTC), VPN connections without trusted third parties

According to Moustafa Amin, a technology expert with more than 20 years of professional experience in large organizations and telephone companies, it would be possible to use Bitcoin to establish VPN connections without a trusted third party. In an article he published, the expert demonstrated a comment that could be done and why it would be beneficial to opt for this mode of connection.

Bitcoin VPN a much better alternative to traditional VPN?

Currently, the private exchange of data between two parties is done through a VPN service provider who acts as an intermediary or trusted third party.

And as you can imagine, this third party should not only be trustworthy, but also reliable. Which is not always guaranteed! Moreover, he must also be always online because if he were to cease his activities, the two concerned could no longer communicate with each other or lose the confidentiality to which they aspired. And again, some providers have not proven to be reliable.

To the question of knowing how to do without intermediaries and thus the inadequacies that characterize them? Moustafa Amin responds with a more or less revolutionary solution : Bitcoin-VPN.

Bitcoin VPN is a solution that could leverage the Bitcoin Network (Layer 1) or the Lightning Network (Layer 2) and allow two or more parties to discover each other and be able to communicate privately over the public internet.

A teleworker or a simple VPN user who wants to access the Internet from another location for certain content restrictions, for example, could use it. And as with the traditional VPN, he will have to access the web portal of the desired VPN service and follow a process that Moustafa Amine a detailed article in his article and which is not complex.

Companies that offer VPN connections are on the rise, but not for long. Soon, they could find themselves in a bad position because of Bitcoin. Indeed, Bitcoin, with its unique decentralized architecture, offers limitless opportunities beyond its financial or known capabilities.
