In a recent video released on Skycoin’s (Crypto: SKY) official YouTube channel, Synth, the co-founder of the project, discussed the new router (dubbed skyminer) they designed for powering the next generation of the internet. The skyminer is really a combination of a router, a server rack, and soon a Wi-Fi access point as well. It is slated to have anywhere from 8 to 256 computers per router, and it will allow each one to perform a different function independent of the others. This increases robustness as well as security, since damaging or hacking one computing node does not affect the function of any of the other computers on-board.
In the future, Synth is looking to develop the technology such that each skyminer could be simply plugged in and anyone could start deploying personal blockchain applications on it using a simple graphical interface.

The Skycoin ecosystem is made up of several different components that are held together by Skywire. Skywire aims to put the control of ISPs into the hands of users. As a self-sufficient network that is 100% owned and operated by its users, Skywire uses peer-to-peer blockchain technology to create a decentralized mesh network that’s fast, private, and secure.
