To push Bitcoin adoption to new levels, innovative projects need to be created to enable it to become part of our everyday lives. BitMesh is a project dedicated to doing exactly that! This project allows people to share their internet bandwidth in exchange for Bitcoin payments. And, the best part about BitMesh is that everything takes place in true peer-to-peer fashion.
Decentralizing The Internet Through Bitcoin
The BitMesh project is nothing new in the world of Bitcoin and technology, as a working prototype was released a little while ago. Even though this is not a final build, the BitMesh software can be installed on a Raspberry Pi to let several clients connect to it. BitMesh’s software will then establish micropayment channels between the server and client.

The amount of internet connectivity time given to the client will depend on the amount they paid so far. As far as the “usage policy” goes, this is entirely determined by the server.
Meshnet attempts have been undertaken multiple times throughout history, and
