What is Mysterium?
Mysterium is a decentralized VPN powered by Blockchain. It’s an Open Sourced Network allowing anyone to rent their unused Network traffic, while providing a secure connection for those in need.
Mysterium is currently undergoing an open TestNet where anyone with the necessary software can set up a Node within the network to act as an endpoint for users traffic. You can see stats of the current TestNet here. This shows the current status of Nodes on the network, where they are based, and how much traffic the network is pushing.
What is Linode?
Linode is a cloud hosting platform that allows you to create Linux virtual machines (VM) in a range of sizes for running services and software. Not only can you create virtual machines in minutes all around the world, you can automate it!
This guide will run you through how to create a micro virtual machine (called a Nanode) and deploy the Mysterium Node docker container inside it, all in one single command, via the use of the Linode API.
