Thinking out loud

what does everyone think about a coin that acts as a rewarded to people who run an open guest network on their router? 

The more internet or users the host gives away the more coins they make.

Proof of Altruism is certainly a cool idea for coin minting. There might be too many technical and practical issues in the way of the public hotspot use case, though. Like I wouldn't share my connection because whatever is done by any anon user on it would get blamed on me by my ISP.

I proposed a basic simple version of this a long time ago.

a mobile device on a mesh network , but with  "on ramps" that were company sponsored around cities

the idea was to basically give the handset out at cost and this would provide the mesh network - with "on ramps" connecting peer hubs.

revenue could be generated from a number of ways once the "free" network is viable.

a "block-chain aspect" could just provide end to end encryption also extra incentive.

it would be feasible, not going to work in a police surveillance state but.
