ONE-CLICK MINING of NKN on DIGITAL OCEAN

$100 FREE ON SIGN-UP

NKN (New Kind of Network) is a new kind of peer to peer connectivity protocol powered by a blockchain, the network allows internet users to share network connections and utilize unused bandwidth for rewards. By running an NKN node, you become part of the NKN network community helping to build the decentralized internet.

NKN have developed a One-Click Droplet which deploys the code needed to run a mining node with Digital Ocean.
If you sign-up from my link you will get $100 credit once you add a payment method, you can just let the mining nodes run until your credit is used up but I do encourage you to let a few nodes keep running as this is a great concept and actually a bit of fun watching it grow.

Digital Ocean also offer other virtual hosting packages including wordpress sites, linux, etc you can use the $100 credit to host any sites you have, its a pretty good deal.
