It's been a long year (or two...)
We know you can't wait to put your feet up and binge your favourite cheesy Christmas movies.
But we want that feeling to last a little longer, so we're gifting a free VPN for the rest of 2022. Winners will get enough MYST to stream, browse, download and explore the furthest limits of the internet. That's enough free crypto to stream hundreds of movies or thousands of episodes of your favourite TV shows.
FYI... adults in the US spend almost 11 hours interacting with online media each day, most of that being video content. Over 70% of online viewers watch more than 7 hours of online video weekly, and nearly 30% watch more than 10 hours!
That’s a lot of screen time - please stretch your legs and rest your eyeballs. 👀
Here’s how we crunched the numbers...
1 MYST gives you approximately:
12 hours of (legal ;) lvideo streaming (0.08 MYST per hour)
128 hours of music streaming (0.007 MYST per hour)
156 hours of browsing the web (0.006 MYST per hour)
If you want to enjoy one movie per day (max. 3 hours), that's 0.24 MYST (0.08 MYST/hr X 3 hrs).
And if you were to scale up for the next 12 months:
0.24 MYST per day
X 365 days
= 88 MYST per year!
Aside from getting unlimited access to global content, you can also stream music, browse the web and download until your computer short-circuits/your fingers cramp/you dominate cyberspace, because one year's worth of MYST also equals:
12,571 hours of music streaming
14,666 hours of browsing the web.
977 GB of data in downloads.
We'll deposit your prize MYST directly in your Mysterium VPN account.
Because we're feeling particularly generous (it's that post-mainnet glow-up), we are giving away one year's worth of free crypto VPN to THREE Mysterium users.
