The Internet is the global communication platform that enables all humans to connect,
share and transact freely across the world.
In the simplest of terms, the Internet is the ‘thing’ that connects us to everything and
The Internet comprises of software-driven networked switches, routers, firewalls, servers
and storage hardware that switch, route, protect and store all our voice, video, text and
blockchain data from our smartphones, tablets and computers intelligently across the
The Internet is also the infrastructure that connects all blockchain nodes, and upon
which all blockchain traffic traverses. Accordingly, its availability, reliability and security
to all cryptocurrencies and decentralised applications cannot be over-emphasised.
Therefore, it can be concluded that:
Without the Internet, there is no Blockchain;
Without Internet-connected computers called “Nodes”, that relay, validate and
This white paper explores:
How Multiven intends to cyber-defend and help secure the future of Bitcoin and
other public cryptocurrencies by ensuring that “centralization attacks”, malicious
and other forms of network and non-network-based cyberattacks
will less likely succeed;
How Multiven intends to disrupt the entire $3 Trillion per annum worldwide
Information Technology market, starting with the $600 Billion per year computer
networking equipment market by creating the world’s first blockchain-based, peer-
to-peer marketplace for new, pre-owned and re-cycled computer and Internet
network hardware, software and services. The secondary goal of this marketplace is
to make Bitcoin node hardware more affordable for less affluent people in emerging
markets which will lead to further decentralization;

“Hardware vendors (and their Governments)
have significant control over Bitcoin. A
competent backdoor could be extremely
difficult to detect and [could] act as a kill
switch for hashing power, allowing the
network to be killed outright or putting
Bitcoin under the control of a single actor.”

Founded in 2005 by Peter Alfred-Adekeye (Cisco Systems’ former Technical Leader for
IOS, the software that runs 75% of the Internet infrastructure), Multiven is today, the
world’s first and only, apolitical provider of decentralized software integrity maintenance
and cyber-defense services for all the Internet Protocol-enabled devices (routers, servers,
switches, firewalls etc.) that make up the global Internet network infrastructure.
The Company’s services are powered by a combination of a global community of an
elite team of 1200 Internet network experts, security researchers, cryptographers and
distinguished engineers in 55 countries, called “Pingsta” and a proprietary Artificial-
Intelligence engine called mySolvr.
In order to maintain its financial independence and thus political neutrality, Multiven has
In order to simplify and eliminate costly intermediaries in the centralised, monopolised
and silo-ed telecommunications equipment global marketplace ecosystem, Multiven
is creating the world’s first Blockchain-based open marketplace, powered by smart
contracts, that enables the world to buy and sell new, pre-owned and re-cycled computing
and Internet network hardware, software and services, directly on a peer-to-peer basis.
The /bitnodes.21.co map shown below confirms that there are only a handful of active
Bitcoin nodes in Africa, Latin America and South East Asia. This is no doubt due to the
high cost of acquiring and operating computers in emerging economies. Our hope is that
the vastly reduced cost of purchasing node hardware, amongst other types of computing
equipment, via the Multiven marketplace will lead to greater decentralisation.

there are 8.4 Billion devices connected to the Internet today, of
which, less than 12,000 nodes make up the Bitcoin network and about 23,000 nodes
make up the Ethereum Network.
A Blockchain is a continuously growing list of records stored in computer memory
blocks, that are chained and secured together, using cryptography.
Each block contains a cryptographic hash pointer as a link to a previous block, a
timestamp and transaction data.
For use as a distributed ledger, a Blockchain is typically managed by a peer-to-peer
network of computers called Nodes, that relay, validate and record transactions onto
memory blocks. Specifically, mining nodes validate transactions, add them to the
block they are building, and then broadcast the completed block to all other nodes.
Once recorded, the data in any given block cannot be altered retroactively without the
alteration of all subsequ...

In order to maintain the decentralized nature of Bitcoin, Ethereum and other public
