Open Zezame, Open the Internet.
Join our mission to create an open, equal, private and secure internet for everyone, anywhere in the world.
The Problem Zezame is solving
People are being denied equal access to the Internet which in turn deprives them of valuable information. Lack of network neutrality, firewalls and government restrictions make it difficult for people in most countries to have unrestricted access to information and communication. In a world where information increasingly means power, this is a very hazardous situation.
Chained by contracts from a different era, content providers are limiting access to video content and informational resources for certain regions, ignoring global mobility of their customers and global demand for their services. Overzealous content providers and governments are imposing geo-restrictions. Therefore, users do not have the same access to information in different countries. For many people around the globe who want to participate in the cultural dialogue around hit TV shows, piracy (and associated risks of malware infections) is currently the only viable solution as VPNs (Virtual Private Networks) are increasingly being blocked.
Fortunately, the shift of power from big governments and large corporations to citizens is currently underway. New technologies are relentlessly disrupting existing structures and creating a possibility of new, autonomous and decentralized network. Facilitated by blockchain technology, we can create a system where both the power and the profits are shared.
