    One of the most important aspects of crypto world is decentralization - a process of taking the power away from a central authority (it being banks, goverment or other) and giving it to thousands of "nodes", making the system regulate itself, without third-party. Presearch is a decentralized search engine, meaning that it takes power from shareholders and gives it back to the people. Anyone, who has a laptop, internet connection, and Docker (software platfrom that operates in containers) can set-up a node and become part of Presearch community!

How to set-up a node?

    1. First of all, you need to sign-up for running the node on Beta testnet, to do this, follow this link:, and answer two simple questions. Then you'll need to wait around a day to be approved (you can check the updates in Preserch telegram group:

If you don't have the possibility to provide a node, or simply don't want to do that, there is another way of earning in Presearch - just by using it to search, you'll get paid in small amount of PRE tokens. That's it, no other work needed, just surf the web, looking for some weird stuff as you usually do, and get paid, isn't it sweet?
