What Is HOPR (HOPR)?
HOPR is a blockchain-based protocol aiming to solve data and privacy issues on a global scale. With an official initial coin offering (ICO) in 2021, HOPR sets out to completely decentralize private data exchanges. According to the protocol’s official website, HOPR is a next-generation privacy solution, allowing both private and enterprise users to decide who has access to their online and personal data.
As a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO), HOPR is not controlled by a centralized entity, but rather governed by the HOPR community and supporters. The protocol is a pioneer in introducing community-enabled governance (DecenGov), which puts control in users’ hands. HOPR aims to bring universal data privacy through the use of blockchain technology and distributed ledgers
Who Are the Founders of HOPR?
Sebastian Bürgel is the founder of HOPR and president of the HOPR Board. He graduated with a degree in information technologies and electrical engineering from ETH Zurich in 2008 and then completed a Ph.D. program in biomedical engineering in 2010. In 2016, Bürgel co-founded SONECT, an ATM as-a-service provider company. He served as the chief technology officer for SONECT until 2017. Alongside working for SONECT, Sebastien Bürgel was also CTO at Validity Labs, providing education-related solutions via blockchain technology. In 2020, Bürgel left Validity Labs to start his latest blockchain project — HOPR.
Another fundamental member of the HOPR Board of Directors is Dr. Catrina Luchsinger Gaehwiler. She graduated from a law program at the University of Zurich and has been a member of several boards throughout her career. Dr. Gaehwiler is currently working as a banking and finance partner at FRORIEP, one of the largest law firms in Switzerland.
What Makes HOPR Unique?
By bringing data privacy to the new era, HOPR employs the powers of blockchain technology and the HOPR token to ensure users have full control over how their data is utilized. The HOPR protocol uses “mixnets,” or routing protocols, in order to shuffle around data and make it extremely hard to track. While shuffling data makes it almost untraceable, the different pieces of information are successfully delivered to the user to decide how to use the whole data set.
In addition, HOPR uses cover traffic to boost data protection further. Cover traffic is the process of sending out empty data packages throughout the mixnet so that this further challenges data interception and misuse. HOPR pioneers the data privacy space, especially because of the focus on blockchain technology. The project has already attracted institutional partners like Avado, Elrond, Sedimentum and Blockarc. HOPR is continuing to improve the protocol and dropping improvements as the ecosystem grows.

How Is the HOPR Network Secured?
As an Ethereum-based protocol, HOPR is secured by the proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus mechanism. The HOPR token is a traditional ERC-20 token. A unique feature of the HOPR protocol is the additional utilization of a proof-of-relay mechanism, which allows every node runner to be incentivized and correctly relay data in exchange for HOPR tokens.
Unlike other popular consensus mechanisms like proof-of-work (PoW), the PoS mechanism is more eco-friendly, as it requires node validators to use less computing and electrical power. Not only that, the versatility of the Ethereum blockchain allows for greater scalability and an increased variety in use cases for the blockchain.
