Within about a week of starting the beta testing (back in 2004-2007), one of our candidates came
up with a great couple questions, which are leading us to create a whole new
The question was: "can I run a network, too?"
Contact us if you are interested in running your own traffic exchange network.
Why we like this idea
The internet is robust... knock out a router, and browsers can still find
websites through 'alternative routes'... even the massive switch destruction
of September 11th, 2001 simply slowed access to certain parts of the internet.
It seems silly, if we're creating a network of exchanges, to get all these
exchanges to point to a possible single-point-of-failure. So, we're
going to create a 'redundancy list', which will provide multiple sites
running the same or similar exchanges.
What exactly will be offered:
This will be a mostly turnkey business for someone involved in traffic
exchanging. You will be able to work with other exchanges, and bring
in members. In exchange for this work, you will get part of the
membership fee. In addition, you will be able to 'clear' tokens
through our central exchange.
We're starting gradually... 4 sites, and probably another 10 over the
six weeks or so. Still, a 14+ site network is a good start. So, if
you start a sub-net of our system, you will be able to honestly invite
people in to "your" 14+ site network, with redundancy at the main site.
The idea here is that you connect and join any ONE of the members of the
subnet, and can then access the network through ANY of the members of the
subnet. In general, members will be required to access the network
through the site they joined. However, in the event of a service
other sites will be available to provide you with service.
We will provide an advanced interface layer that manages your
member-sites' subnet-seeking behavior.
