ATOR is an internet privacy ecosystem, administering a decentralized network of relays through the ATOR token. The ATOR Protocol strengthens the provision of anonymity networks such as Tor via on-chain recognition rewards, whilst facilitating their adoption through innovative hardware, services and education. The ATOR token fulfils a number of key functions within the ecosystem: The ATOR token’s value proposition within the ATOR Protocol ecosystem is multi-faceted and encompasses several key aspects: Token Rewards and Incentives: The primary function of the ATOR token is to serve as a reward mechanism for relay operators of decentralised privacy networks such as Tor. This cryptocurrency network allows relay operators to register an ERC20 wallet to receive on-chain recognition rewards in ATOR tokens Decentralized Services: ATOR token holders may use their tokens to access specialised services within the ATOR Protocol ecosystem, or, if they are a service provider, set up their own service pool that can pay out relays for third-party functions. The token serves as a means of accessing and transacting within the network. DAO Governance: The ATOR token is designed to play a central role in the governance of the ATOR Protocol. Token holders have the opportunity to participate in decision-making processes related to protocol upgrades, changes, and the allocation of resources within the ecosystem. Recognition: The ATOR token also provides a form of recognition for users and operators within the ecosystem. Holding and, going forward, staking the token indicates a contribution and commitment to global anonymity and privacy networks. Join us in this journey towards a more open and anonymous digital world.
