At its core, Sentinel is a decentralized p2p bandwidth distribution network built on Tendermint and the Cosmos SDK that gives anyone the ability to monetize their bandwidth by devoting it to the Sentinel network.
The amount of bandwidth given and used by network participants is metered and confirmed by Sentinel’s set of validators.
