Impervious represents a radical shift in discretion and control over data back to the parties actually creating and consuming it.”
“Impervious is working to standardize privacy and censorship resistance for all software developers via a Bitcoin-native programmatic layer where these features are not bolted on but inherent to the technology stack itself,” said Christopher Calicott, TVP’s Managing Director.
As an example of what can be developed utilizing the Impervious API, Impervious is releasing a dynamic VPN that leverages the Lightning Network to provide on-demand, high-bandwidth VPN services. The Impervious API can operate from behind hostile networks and denied access areas using the Lightning Network as a credential exchange and transport layer to establish peer-to-peer, secured channels for censorship resistant data transmissions.
Applications being built on the Impervious.ai API include peer-to-peer streaming video, podcasts, live events, news reporting, distributed storage, and VOIP-based communications.
Impervious CEO, Chase Perkins elaborated;
“There are only two plausible futures. One where centralized intermediaries and gatekeepers have greater discretionary control over your life and business. The other is where they have far less. Impervious is enabling the latter.”
