SID start-up culture is to serve the global less fortunate citizens and businesses to enjoy the share Internet offered by SID.
Our innovative technology aims to enable a global Internet access boom and thus help to lift certain segments of the 500 million poor people out of poverty.
SID (Share Internet Data) is a peer-to-multi-peer decentralized internet sharing system that allows sharing internet from one person’s smartphone to another nearby in an automated manner.
One of our key missions through the SID project :
“To lift as many people as possible out of poverty by means of giving the less fortunate a way to access the Internet”.
Certain users will be able to get free Internet access by obtaining tokens in exchange of consuming advertising. Such obtained tokens can then be used to consume internet megabytes from other nearby Users in exchange for tokens OR Users will simply trade some of their tokens directly with other SID Users. Those trades will be done simply through a secured blockchain, on a public exchange to ensure full transparency with the control of the tokens and the control of sharing internet or not fully decentralized, meaning solely under end-user’s control through their post ITO (Initial Token Offering) token Wallet inside the SID App.
We propose a solution, different to the status-quo, where users up to now only obtained Internet directly from traditional service providers or mobile network operators or Wi-Fi hotspots. SID will offer Smartphone Users the possibility to access crowd-sourced internet shared by other Users of our “SHARE INTERNET DATA” ecosystem when they have no coverage or no data credit or simply no Internet access at a given location but they are nearby other SID smartphones who do have Internet access. This is achieved by using our innovative crowd sourced Internet in a peer-to-peer or peer-to-multi-peer structure overseen by a patent pending proprietary technology.
The trading of tokens for megabytes of shared Internet will be done in an automated way through contracts secured by a blockchain. Such trades will create a liquid token (virtual voucher) market that could possibly trigger the unleashing of a vast amount of people coming out of poverty simply by the fact that they would have finally a means to access the Internet.
Using SID is free for all Users and in future those who share their internet will get compensated by a points-value-based voucher system (utility token or SIDT), which they can redeem on the SID Platform to obtain internet themselves from other SID Users.
With the SID App you can get access to an Internet connection through these features:

To facilitare the understanding of the SID project, we have compiled the most frequently asked questions about SID. If you have any other questions, please get in touch with us through the official English language SID Telegram Channel .
SID (Share Internet Data) is a peer-to-multi-peer decentralized internet sharing platform accessed through its iOS and Android Apps. All SID Apps have access to the shared WiFis on the SID platform whilst only SID Android Apps share internet from one person's smartphone to another user nearby smartphone in an automated manner.
To lift as many people out of poverty as possible by means of giving the less fortunate a way to access the Internet. SID support the United Nations Nr1 SDG as follows: providing future SID users who can´t afford to pay for tokens away to access the internet through internet shared by the SID community, thereby giving those users access to information and education. It’s the latter, education, that is proven to lift people out of poverty.
SID is about community building, users themselves add WiFi passwords so that all SID users are able to access internet from that WiFi. Default setting in the app is set to share only WiFi but you can manually set to share also mobile plan (3G/4G) internet. After our ITO (Token sale) we will activate the trading of SID Tokens for shared internet data (mobile or home WiFi as public shared hotspots are always free) between SID users smartphones. Currently already several hundred thousand WiFis have been added by our SID users and this number is growing daily. According to #Statista in 2018 there are around 16 times more smartphones then WiFi hotspots around the world so merging the sharing of WiFi and Mobile Data with other SID users is a powerful mix.According to #Statista in 2018 there are around 16 times more smartphones then WiFi hotspots around the world so merging the sharing of WiFi and Mobile Data with other SID users is a powerful mix.
There are many great incentives to share internet. When you share a WiFi internet connection it extends the range for others. This is because SID is all about community building and thus a working WiFi password entered by one is used by the platform for all SID community users. So, when you need internet you will get WiFi internet from the SID community. As for Mobile internet (today it’s free but the default setting is set to OFF which you can activate manually to ON) the incentive post initial token sale (ITO) is that you get paid in tokens by nearby SID users who you share your SID Android Smartphone internet with. The only point pending is post ITO, to differentiate between public and home WiFi, through a secure authentication mechanism ensuring that the owner of the home WiFi is truly the real owner, thereby allowing the owner to get paid in Tokens on his SID account for internet shared from his home WiFi with the SID community.So when you need it internet you will get WiFi internet from the SID community too. 2.- As for Mobile internet (today it’s free to show it works but setting is default off) the incentive post initial token sale (ITO) is that you get paid in tokens by nearby SID users who you share your SID Android Smartphone internet with. 3.- the only pending thing is post ITO to differentiate between public and home WiFi , through authentication ensuring the owner of that home WiFi, to allow the owner to get paid in Tokens for internet shared of his home WiFi.
Yes!! You can download SID apps from Google Play Store or App Store for iOS. Download the SID App now and start using SID today.
Please go to your iPhone or iPad “settings” and scroll down to Safari. Click on Safari and in there click on “Clear History and website data” and then login again to your SID account or Register again.
Tethering would kill your battery if you leave it permanently on but not SID. Actually, the smartphone that has internet consumes very little as it only will activate the internet sharing power-consuming Radio transceiver on demand by another SID smartphone nearby that has no internet and request to receive internet from anyone within range.
Yes. The SID Android smartphone can only be an internet source for other nearby SID Android users. As for iPhone, Apple currently does NOT yet allow access to the radio hardware . Apple allowed SID access to WiFi such that we can auto-connect to WIFI’s on the SID platform added by the community themselves. Our SID app has been in commercial release version since Feb. 2018 in both App-Store (only “autoWiFi” SDK as per our Whitepaper) and in Play-Store (both “autoWiFi” and auto sharing internet between Android smartphones and tablets as per our Whitepaper).
It is normal, simply because the SID App core function is to share internet. If you want to receive internet from others the App does that automatically if that setting is ON. The only way to automate internet sharing is to monitor the hardware and detect the moment when it’s NOT connected to the internet to request other SID users to share their internet. In order to save battery, the SID App will only start searching for nearby other SID internet sources when the mobile is not connected to the internet. Without that access there would be little point in having the app as we would not be able to detect if your device has internet or needs internet.
Security of data is absolutely a top priority. The communications channel encrypted 256/128 AES encryption AND the internet shared between SID smartphones are encrypted too.
Free SIDT (SID Tokens) can be obtained by downloading the SID App from AppStore or Google Play and earn free tokens each time you add a new WiFi to the SID platform, once the credentials of each added WiFi are validated as working ones by the SID platform.
SID Tokens (SIDT) have a number of utility purposes within the SID Platform depending on the role that the user chooses to take on. Essentially, SIDT will have the following functionality within the SID Platform: SIDT will be used to pay for fees within the SID Platform; SIDT will be used to acquire certain internet megabytes from other nearby users of the SID Platform; SIDT will be earned by sharing certain of their internet megabytes other nearby users of the SID Platform. SIDT might be earned in the future when consuming “paid Ads” when users are connected to the internet directly or connected to internet through other nearby SID users.
SIDT does not have any functionality or utility outside the SID Platform. The functionality and utility of SIDT will therefore be limited to interacting with users/content within the confines of the SID platform. SIDT are not intended to have any functionality or utility outside the SID Platform. The SID Platform will therefore be structured as a “closed system” insofar as the use of SIDT is concerned. Whilst it is possible that a secondary market could develop for trading SIDT, SID Ltd will not operate such secondary markets nor will act as an exchange for any secondary markets. To the extent a secondary market or exchange for trading SIDT does develop, it would be run and operated wholly and independently of SID Ltd, and independently from the Token Sale and the SID Platform.
The principle objective of the Blockchain for Share Internet Data (SID) is to ensure the highest possible form of security, transparency, and efficiency of executing the trades of Tokens (vouchers) for internet Megabytes transactions and for keeping SID future users’ Wallets up to date and safe.
SID has deployed a smart contract system (the “Smart Contract System“) is based on the Stellar blockchain for the purposes of creating its own proprietary tokens, SIDT, and issuing such SIDT to the Contributor’s Stellar wallet. SIDT uses the Stellar blockchain for the micropayment for future shared internet between users of the SID community.
