There is little doubt that access to the Internet is fundamental to most people in today’s society. With increased demand comes the need for innovation and cutting-edge technology that supports connectivity and growth for people around the world.
Open Garden Powers People To Use And Share Their Internet Connection
The Open Garden Project has a lofty goal of building a “People Powered Internet,” allowing users to share their Internet access with others. The Open Garden mobile app will enable users to securely share their Internet connection with anyone who is in range of the signal – and also has the Open Garden app installed on their device.
Currently, Open Garden has app support on mobile devices running Android 5.0 or later operating systems. Mac, iOS, and PC support are in development. Those who are interested in signing up for early access on the iOS platform can sign up on the website for updates.
Open Garden Cryptocurrency Getting Added To The Stellar Network
In return for running this application, users will be able to earn cryptocurrency for their support of the project. According to a recent tweet, the OG Cryptocurrency is expected to go live on the Stellar (XLM) network on February 28, 2018.
As you can imagine, this service could help empower people with limited or no access to the Internet, allowing them to connect to communicate with friends and family, play mobile games, read the news, or even stream content. People who are willing to share their connection using the Open Garden Mobile app get the opportunity to collect OG cryptocurrency for their participation in the program.
