What is Lokinet, Lokinet Exit Nodes & Anonymous VPN and why should you care?

What is Lokinet?
Lokinet is a decentralized onion routed network that uses Oxen service nodes as relays. Lokinet supports any traffic that can be put in an IP packet. It is also designed to be low latency, so you can run real-time voice and video services over Lokinet. Service node operators are economically incentivized to provide bandwidth and processing power for the network.

What is a Lokinet Exit Node?

Exit nodes are computers on the Lokinet that route traffic from Lokinet to the Internet. You could compare an Exit node to a VPN, but one that truly makes your IP address anonymous.

Why should I care about Lokinet?
In one word: Anonymity. If you wish to use the Internet anonymously, Lokinet can help you achieve that. If you are tired of the surveillance by big tech and other entities, Lokinet can help you stay under their radar.

How is Lokinet VPN different from standard VPN?
The major difference is that you don’t have to trust the VPN provider. Onion routing hides your IP address from the provider. With Lokinet VPN even the service provider, such as Privacy Pro Shop, doesn’t know your real IP address. A standard VPN provider, such as Mullvad, Proton, IVPN, ExpressVPN, etc. knows your real IP address at your home, business or mobile device and they can be compelled to reveal that information to authorities.

Why should I trust Privacy Pro Shop as my Anonymous VPN provider?
Because you don’t have to trust us! We don’t know and have no way of finding out what your real IP address is. As far as technical competence goes, we have been in the IT business taking care of servers for 25 years, so we have the experience and technical skill to keep these systems running.

Do I have to reveal my name when purchasing Lokinet VPN?
No! Our purchase process is anonymous as long as you use cryptocurrency for the purchase. We recommend you use Monero for complete anonymity, but we also accept Bitcoin, Ether, Tether (USDT), Litecoin, Binance Coin, Bitcoin Cash & Dogecoin.

Why do you ask for my Country, State & Zip Code?
That is because state sales taxes in the United States are determined based on where you live. If you live in the state of Washington or Arizona where we have offices, we will have to charge sales tax.
