Okay, well I will kick it off, especially because you called me out. I make no secret of the fact the I am an avid supporter of CryptoStorm. I hold an "aleph token" with them, which makes me a lifetime member, but I also buy a new standard token every year to continue to support the entity as much as I can. I truly think that Cryptostorm is as perfect as you can get with a VPN. Before I elaborate, let's get this out of he way:
I couldn't care less what Mr. Spink does/did in his personal life. I bet half the people who use this forum have been involved in some way or another with "drugs" at some point or another in their life. Granted, I figure a much lesser percentage will have been involved with bestiality, but to each their own (and I have no proof that he has been, nor do I care). Whether or not I've let a dog lick some peanut butter off my wang, or screwed a goat, doesn't make me any less of a privacy activist or amazing VPN service organizer and staff member. If anyone here wants to automatically disregard all of the awesome points there are about CryptoStorm because ONE of the staff members might have committed bestiality, then so be it. I think the technological achievements speak for themselves though.
For those of you who don't know, CryptoStorm is designed from the ground-up for the service to not know who you are, even before and during your "subscribing" to the service. This is accomplished through their token system. You can buy a token from anyone you want. I can sell you mine, you can buy one from a token seller, or from CS itself if you don't care about that extra layer of privacy. You log in with your (hashed) token and nothing else. No e-mail, no password, nothing. All they know is when a token is set to expire. They don't know who you are and don't care. Tokens are freely transferable. If I buy 10 tokens, I can sell them to 10 different people and CS has no clue who any of those ten people are. It's brilliant.
They log nothing. They log even less than AirVPN, and they don't keep any active session data either. There's really no way to track the users at all. They null route all of the logging functions that are inherent in the system. You can read more about that here: https://cryptostorm.org/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=6332&p=10139
Contrary to popular belief, CS is just as open source as AirVPN is. You can get the code for whatever you want on their github, and if anything is missing, just ask for it on the forum and you'll get it forthwith. They encourage the use of OpenVPN rather than their proprietary client, which the call the "widget". df will supply you the source code for the widget if you want it. It's just an OpenVPN wrapper though, so that less tech saavy users can just use it out of the box. See the github for details on how stuff works: https://github.com/cryptostorm
Another innovation of theirs that I feel the need to highlight is their DNS system, which they have dubbed "deepDNS". I personally find this to be the best DNS option out there, especially with the newest addition to the DNS, which they are calling TrackerSmacker. DNS is run on each server, just as it is here at AirVPN. Unlike AirVPN though, when you are using the CS DNS, you are able to natively resolve .onion and .i2p extentions without even being on TOR or the Invisible Internet Project. You are just happily browsing away in your browser, going to .com to .onion at will, with no need for TOR. You can, of course, use TOR over the VPN if you want, but it's just not necessary. DeepDNS has no logging of course, and as of about a week ago, it no protects you from malicious trackers and ad-based malware automatically (you can opt out and be tracked by malicious crap if you want to, due to your overly-libertarian beliefs or whatever). See here for some information on the deepDNS: https://github.com/cryptostorm/cstorm_deepDNS
and see here for details on the TrackerSmacker: https://cryptostorm.org/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=8981&p=15603
I could speak ad naseum over all the reasons that I think CS is the best VPN out there, but I'll stop here for now. Maybe I'll expound more later. There's so many awesome things to talk about, but I'm done geeking out for the present moment.
TL;DR? There's only two VPN Services that I trust with my data, and those VPN Services are AirVPN and CryptoStorm. There is no VPN service out there that is better than either one of these. CS is technically my primary VPN. I just feel ever so slighly more comfortable on their network. But I use AirVPN on a daily basis too. If you can get over the fact that some dude might like animals, you may think CS is pretty awesome too!
