Bitbox

Why Bitbox?
Currently, there are no direct incentives to run any full node. We aim to change that.

What is Bitbox?
Bitbox is a hardware solution specifically designed to run full nodes of not only Bitcoin but ANY blockchain network you want. Not only do we have a hardware solution, but our Bitbox app uses a modern containerization platform so you can spin up ANY blockchain network of your choosing, with a tap of a button on your mobile device. Each node you support will also come with full wallet integration, so your Bitbox can become the hub for your day to day crypto-related interactions.

Tokens, For What?
Incentivizing users to run full nodes isn't something that is inherently built into the core functionality of Bitcoin or any similar project. The tokens you will earn can provide flexibility to any Bitbox owner. By running a Bitbox, you will earn Bitbox tokens over time. The more nodes you run, the more you earn. It is that simple. You can:

  • Utilize the Bitbox tokens to participate in our PoS (Proof of Stake) network, ultimately making your nodes work for you.
  • Convert said tokens into any supported currency, via atomic swap.
  • Use said tokens to purchase Bitbox upgrades, new hardware releases, etc. as we roll new products out.

How Do I Participate?
We are in the beginning stages of our development, with multiple working physical prototypes and would love to get these into the hands of some passionate alpha users. We think this tool will be a valuable asset to the crypto community at large ad we would love to hear your feedback.

Within the next couple of weeks, we will launch our site's store where you can pre-order a prototype.

About The Team
We are a group of avid blockchain enthusiasts who have a combined number of decades working as hardware engineers, software engineers and designers for large financial institutions. Our goal is to lower the barrier of entry into the blockchain ecosystem while maintaining a great user experience.

Thank you!
