When the internet was first unveiled, this innovation that has undoubtedly revolutionized the world was pegged on an “open and shared environment.” That was probably the idea behind the name “Internet” or more strictly, an interconnection of different networks. And it had the initial promise of having an open and shared network where hosts would freely connect to one another and collaborate.
Paradoxically, the present version of the internet is not conforming to the original idea of being an “an open and shared environment.” It is delving away from that and instead becoming increasingly centralized and controlled, a factor that’s ridding it of real internet features. This phenomenon is substantially expanding, thanks to port blocking, NAT, DNS and non-static IP address.
What Is LocalXpose?
In the wake of the upsurge in cryptocurrency revolution and the demand for P2P connection becoming a lot important, this gag of the free, open and shared environment isn’t right. This trend is indeed worrying, especially if it continues going on this way.
Luckily, there could be a real solution in place, thanks to LocalXpose.io who is trying to solve this issue by allowing free exposure to any localhosted services using nodes spread across the world. LocalXpose takes advantage of the new and innovative blockchain technology to create a network of nodes spread all over the world (in countries that permit inbound connections).
How LocalXpose Expose Localhost Using Reverse Proxy Works
It is a p2p reverse proxy hub that is designed to enable users to expose their computers (localhost) to the web. At the core of this platform are three features: a Blocked Node, an Open Node and the End User, with the open node serving as the intermediary between the two.
It is a tunnel that connects blocked nodes and open nodes so that computers can freely access blocked services that are available on the web. Primarily, with this platform, you will use the three to have your localhosted services working for you 24/7.
- Blocked node – it is the node that shares out your localhosted services to the internet through the Open Node.
- Open Node – it is the go-between and only accessible from the internet used to send out the requests that emanate from the Blocked Node. For it to work, the Blocked Node will have to pay for the services using LocalXpose tokens.
- End User – it refers to everyone eager to access services that are typically blocked. An end user can be a client, a friend, a family, etc.
LocalXpose LXP Token ICO Details
Development works that are thus working on a Beta version is under the tutelage of a 3-member executive team. On the ICO and subsequent release of LXP tokens to various global exchanges, everything is well underway. LXP is a utility token based on the stellar blockchain used to incentivize users to run the LocalXpose Open-Node server. LXP will be used as payment for serving the platform.
LXP Functions For Holders:
- Trade LXP In Exchanges
- Transfer And Store LXP In Their Stellar Wallets
Parameters Of The ICO:
- Token Symbol: LXP
- Token Sale Dates: Yet To Be Determined
- Total Supply: 200,000,000
- Soft Cap: 1,000,000
- Hard Cap: 15,000,000
As the Whitepaper that explains the whole idea behind this noble invention elucidates, LocalXpose.io is the long-awaited solution. At the heart of this is user privacy which is upheld; no login details can be shared whatsoever, thanks to blockchain that the platform is anchored on. It is DDoS proof centralized solution.
The platform will be a pay-as-you-go kind of resource for an effective saving of money. Other than that, a user located in a country that allows inbound connections may choose to be an Open-Node user and rent bandwidth to other users.
