Unlike Tor and Katzenpost/Meson, Nym uses blockchains in order not to have a central directory and uses incentives to decentralize the mix network itself. Due to cover traffic and timing delays based on the Loopix design, Nym provides superior privacy than both VPNs and Tor, and can be integrated to communicate with any blockchain to enable communication without censorship or fear. Nym fills in the missing pieces of the cryptographic revolution necessary to end mass surveillance."},{"insert":"\n"},{"attributes":{"background":"transparent","color":"#000000"},"insert":"Learn more from our"},{"attributes":{"background":"transparent","color":"#000000","link":"https://nymtech.net/nym-litepaper.pdf"},"insert":" "},{"attributes":{"background":"transparent","color":"#1155cc","link":"https://nymtech.net/nym-litepaper.pdf"},"insert":"litepaper"},{"attributes":{"background":"transparent","color":"#000000"},"insert":"."},{"insert":"\n\n"},{"attributes":{"background":"transparent","color":"#000000"},"insert":"Team Nym"},{"attributes":{"header":1},"insert":"\n"},{"attributes":{"background":"transparent","color":"#000000"},"insert":"The Nym team is comprised by established coders and researchers in privacy-enhancing technologies."},{"insert":"\n"},{"attributes":{"background":"transparent","color":"#000000","bold":true},"insert":"Harry Halpin,"},{"attributes":{"background":"transparent","color":"#000000"},"insert":" CEO is a renowned computer scientist and a leader in the movement against mass surveillance who worked under web inventor Tim Berners-Lee at the World Wide Web Consortium, lead NEXTLEAP and PANORAMIX, amongst other accomplishments."},{"insert":"\n"},{"attributes":{"background":"transparent","color":"#000000","bold":true},"insert":"Claudia Diaz, "},{"attributes":{"background":"transparent","color":"#000000"},"insert":"CSO (Chief Science Officer) with 20 years working on privacy-enhancing technologies, she is one of Europe’s preeminent researchers in the field recognized for her contribution to the foundations of metadata protection from surveillance, traffic analysis, tracking, localization and behavioral profiling."},{"insert":"\n"},{"attributes":{"background":"transparent","color":"#000000","bold":true},"insert":"Dave Hrycyszyn, "},{"attributes":{"background":"transparent","color":"#000000"},"insert":"CTO has founded, built and sold several companies from Chainspace, Blockmainia, and the Vega protocol.
