Open Garden Inc. launched another Internet service today. Unlike conventional, unified ISPs, where one expansive retailer conveys services, Open Garden is a shared system that will grow into a huge number of crowdsourced suppliers. Members download the Open Garden application from Google Play to start – no extra equipment is required to fabricate the system.

In mid 2018, Open Garden will begin its own particular crypto currency, an Ethereum token called OG that empowers every client to procure tokens in return for sharing their bandwidth.
Open Garden will utilize FireChat to help bootstrap the system. FireChat has more than 5M enrolled clients of its award winning shared messaging platform, which will bolster full Internet network and free messaging for everybody. Providers keep 100% of OG they procure. By utilizing OG, an ERC20 token on the Ethereum blockchain, payments are secure and don’t require a mediator to ensure payment. Shoppers bring down the cost of Internet, adding no agreement responsibilities, and a compensation as-you-go display.
“The Internet belongs to everyone, and now people can shift the balance of power by taking back control,” said Paul Hainsworth, CEO of Open Garden. “More participants mean greater availability to more people at a lower cost.”
The Open Garden Android application is live in beta today in Google Play and is only the start of this biological system. Applications for iOS, Mac, PC, and support for set-top streaming boxes will commence in 2018. Undertaking Open Garden, an open source venture, will empower designers to incorporate OG with their own applications and equipment arrangements. OG can be utilized by existing WiFi framework owners -, for example, metropolitan WiFi, shopping centers, stadiums, airplane terminals, eateries, and private ventures – to adapt their current capital investment.
