Welcome to Nym Test & Earn

Nym is building privacy into the network layer of the internet. With surveillance now powered by Machine Learning algorithms, privacy protections need to keep pace - no previous solutions protect against large scale traffic and metadata analysis!

You can contribute to making privacy the default for everyone by helping us test the mixnet and have the chance to earn NYM tokens.

What happen in the background:

As a first step towards generalised network layer privacy, Nym has launched NymConnect, a Beta app to stress test the Nym mixnet - a powerful, global mixnet run by a community of operators across the world.

When you open NymConnect and select that you want to participate, this opens a proxy to a site that can only be accessed via NymConnect over the Nym mixnet. This helps send traffic through the mixnet and allows us to stress-test the network to see how much load it can handle and where we can optimise. The proxy site then sends you back a task that is only visible to people using the mixnet, so that you can prove that you have actually used NymConnect.

Thank you for being part of the Nym community and making the new internet a free and dignified place for us all.


The Nym Network is powered by the NYM Token, a utility token that is used to access and operate the Nym mixnet. NYM should only be used within the Nym mixnet. NYM is not a general purpose payment mechanism, an investment asset, or a cryptocurrency.

Test & Earn participation and rewards are only available to individuals who do not reside in locations that makes them ineligible to participate or receive prizes, including the United States, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Syria, Russia, the Crimea region of Ukraine, the so-called Donetsk People’s Republic and the so-called Luhansk People’s Republic. Nym may request that participants provide relevant information as necessary, and can only process rewards once cleared by the Nym compliance team.
