What is BandZ?

Imagine being able to trade bandwidth/Internet just like any other cryptocurrency.

BandZ is a P2P extranet infrastructure protocol designed to serve a global market of smart devices. BandZ aims to redistribute the internet via decentralizing bandwidth access. BandZ enables users to share the bandwidth/internet services via blockchain technology.

The internet enabled blockchain and now the blockchain will enable the internet.

BandZ will offer a range of decentralized services from bandwidth sharing to VPN tunneling, with other layers and WebRTC services planned for the future!

Decentralized Bandwidth

Blockchain is at the very frontier of technology. The only means of utilizing mass decentralization are communication networks – the internet.

BandZ will give the web a new range, depth, and identity. Decentralized bandwidth sharing means that each user can act as his/her own ISP. You and your ISP can sell/buy bandwidth with BandZ to companies or other individuals. By utilizing your mobile devices, you can create large areas of connectivity to improve your ISPs service reach and share in its profits.

Internet & Current Issues

The modern world of ISPs is strictly controlled and regulated by governing bodies, pigeonholing them into expensive fees for limited services. All natural monopolies exist because of a lack of optimal technology. When the right technology does come along, it makes the medium not only more accessible and cheap, but also ubiquitous. The same can be said for internet through our airwaves, and BandZ is on its way to helping that vision come to pass.

One use case is travel. Roaming fees are precariously expensive. This same data is offered locally at a fraction of the price. There is a clear opportunity for great, scaling efficiencies for both the user who gets farther and faster internet access and the ISP who can reach new customers in areas with little-to-no landline infrastructure.

BandZ & The Free Market

BandZ will give users the power to choose.

By sharing your internet, you can earn BandZ. These BandZ tokens can than be used to purchase internet/bandwidth and enterprise-grade security services from others peers on the network. This creates a free market in the truest and most liquid sense, where users can manage their internet use and pricing as the optimal equilibrium would dictate.

Questions About Bandz?

The best way is to just go and ask them directly!

Talk to the team here in their Telegram group.

Graphic Information

Make a graphic that is relevant to BandZ as well as their goals. These will be images that may be used in their articles, or just to show their followers! Feel free to stick to the color schema of their logo, or create something totally unique. It can be anything! It can be users selling/buying bandwidth, a graphic depicting free exchange of bandwidth, or anything in between. A flyer, a logo, a comic, or whatever you feel will best represent BandZ in a graphic! As long as it is appropriate and relevant, anything goes. It can be humorous or technical. The most important thing is that your image is creative and original!

Excelete challenge, hands to work.

hello, i'm interested in participate, but have a pair of questions: it can be any kind of image, like a poster or publicity, no limits on that? and your logotype where i can find it? it is necessary? thank you and hope to receive your answer so i can start!

Not sure if I understand the question, but I will try my best to answer.

As long as the work is original and your own, anything goes. Posters, flyers, etc. Just a graphic that depicts something about BandZ!

I am not sure what you mean by logotype. The logo they have can be used in the graphic, but you are also free to be as creative as you want!

If you aren't sure, take a look at some of the previous contests :)

Nice, i though you needed something like and advise of your brand with the logo included, but if i can do anything i want (under the rules you posted) then excellent! i will try!
thank you, any doubt i will ask again anyway!

Yeah, just a short description, link to website and your design. A little explanation on why you picked your graphic, just so we know your thought process.

Again, previous contests are a great reference point. Maybe refer to winners announcement if you are curious to see what kind of submissions have won in the past.

Good luck!
