Emerald Onion is a Seattle-based 501(c)3 not-for-profit and encrypted-transit internet service provider. We work to protect privacy, anonymity, access to information, and free speech online. To further that mission, we operate high-capacity, fully open Tor exit routers with connectivity to the Seattle Internet Exchange. Emerald Onion envisions a world where access and privacy are the defaults. If we do not have human rights online, we will not have them offline, either.
To support our goals, we need to move our hosting operations into the Westin Building to reduce surveillance points incurred from the larger internet architecture incurred when when hosting outside of major points of presence within the internet.
The initial goal of $8,000 would fund several high capacity Tor relays and our firewall's rack space, power and 1Gbps bandwidth for 1 year.
