Ether-1 (ETHO) is a fork of Ethereum implementing a decentralized hosting platform (ethoFS) using a community-owned node network combining blockchain indexing technology and the IPFS protocol to deliver decentralized content on-demand. EthoFS is a decentralized website hosting platform which utilizes the node network for storage and bandwidth, DDoS protection, censorship-resistance, and reliability. Community-owned nodes share in data hosting revenue generated by the network.
Node Types Available For Deployment:
- Service Node (SN): Act as a data relay and secure the Ether-1 blockchain.
- Masternode (MN): Provide storage and processing resources to the network and secure the Ether-1 blockchain.
- Gateway Node (GN): Provide storage and processing resources to the network, secure the Ether-1 blockchain, and act a gateway to decentrally hosted ethoFS data on the network.
