A new product has been launched on the Ghost website: an eSIM.
Ghost is a famous privacy crypto that uses a PoS (Proof of Stake) system.
The product is thus a virtual SIM, not a physical one.
It’s worth mentioning that this crypto was launched by John McAfee and has the purpose to achieve greater privacy without sacrificing network speed: in fact, considering other secure systems these are not very scalable.
The service behind this eSIM is called “Ghost Cell Phone Data Service” and allows some interesting features like:
- Being invisible on the Internet, thanks to the traffic that passes through several servers before reaching the destination;
- No physical SIM, we are talking about a virtual SIM that can be scanned using QR code;
- VPN protection, as the app contains a VPN that allows all data to be encrypted;
- Choosing the location: it is possible to select an IP from over 2000 addresses and more than 35 different countries;
- Fast connection with 4G technology;
- Global use: the advantage of this eSIM is that it can already be used in over 35 countries.
Considering that this is an eSIM, the user needs to have a suitable phone to use this technology.
Some supported models are the Google Pixel 3, 3XL, 4 and 4XL, the Samsung Galaxy S20, s20+, Z Flip and Fold, the iPhone 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max, XS, XS Max and XR.
Another detail that has been revealed is the data plan that, besides having access to the network, provides 1 GB of data, though it is possible to buy other more extensive packages.
The call service is not available, but the phone would be enabled to make VOIP calls and supports apps like Skype.
For the moment there are no other details on this Ghost eSim, but other information such as the cost of the basic plan will be announced soon.
Undoubtedly such a service is very convenient for all those who are in areas that are difficult to cover, so it could be a real turning point for the protection of privacy and resistance to censorship.
