Serious security issues exist today in the telecommunication and infrastructure technologies that either support or enable Decentralized and Cryptocurrencies.

Protecting both physical and virtual networks is a difficult task. Recent news reports show that both hardware and software wallets are at risk of being hacked through physical and software-based methodologies.

ClearFoundation is uniquely positioned in the market today. ClearCenter offers products available through an exclusive partnership with Hewlett Packard Enterprise hardware and services. By combining these services with ClearFoundation software and ClearCenter management tools, ClearFoundation can provide an unmatched and secure backbone architecture to secure Cryptocurrencies and Decentralized.

This packaged offering from ClearFoundation enables a new generation of uses including our value as a service, end-to-end secure audits, private exchanges, new mining options, and much more.


The ClearNODE Vision

In order to provide the most secure backbone for Decentralized and Decentralized currencies, the ClearNODE infrastructure and packaged apps protect your system on all four critical layers server, chip, disk and apps. ClearNODE is the only architecture available today that can fully secure all four layers.

The ClearNODE Managed Service includes the Clear Digital Lifecycle Management covering 4 key aspects - system hardening, consolidation, security, monetization.


What Are ClearTOKENS And What Is ClearNODE?

ClearTOKEN is a utility token from ClearFoundation that was created to enable a new Platform and Decentralized App (Dapp) Marketplace making Decentralized nodes, digital currencies and Dapps more reliable and truly secure.

Half of the total proceeds from ClearTOKEN will be set aside to fund an asset-backed Responsibility Endowment. This portfolio will tokenize natural and renewable energy classes allowing ClearFoundation stability and allowing it to continue to build, promote, and defend Decentralized-based and open source technologies worldwide.

The remaining half of ClearTOKEN proceeds will fund the expansion of ClearFoundation’s Decentralized Platform and Dapp Marketplace including the ClearSHARE decentralized storage service and other offerings.

ClearNODE is an integrated product line of managed hardware, software, and security services. ClearNODE leverages Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) ProLiant servers to run ClearOS, a Linux-based operating system, connected to the ClearOS Marketplace, and secured by the ClearGM security service.

You will be able to use ClearNODE as a secure decentralized storage device, a hybrid hardware/software wallet, to farm ClearTOKENS, and more. ClearNODE will also protect your local network, servers, wallets, Decentralized nodes, Dapps, devices, and even your family.

ClearGM - Decentralized Network Protection & Security

Secure the Decentralized network from external and internal threats with Gateway. Management from ClearGM. Its zero-trust model is like a next-generation VPN but more secure using DNS-based filtering, machine-learning, and full egress control.

Decentralized Remote Security Audit Service

Decentralized Remote Security Audit is a service for system administrators to limit the damage potential of corrupted or altered system files. The service quickly notifies administrators so that damage-control measures can be taken in a timely manner. The service utilizes ClearCenter's SDN cloud service and protects against a malicious attacker disguising any intrusion due to the creation of a unique hash which is stored in the cloud then validated against subsequent audits.

Secure Decentralization Management

Gain visibility into your entire environment with ClearCenter's new Secure Decentralization Management tool. It securely provides oversight for all of your network and connected devices even across decentralized and distributed environments.

Remote Decentralized Backup

ClearCenter's Remote Decentralized Backup Service app provides secure, simple and reliable backup around the world in a region of your choice. Your data is encrypted — both in transit and at rest — in clusters managed and secured by ClearCenter. You maintain total control over the encryption keys.

Powered by: logo


ClearCenter's Decentralized Storage App is similar to a NAS but with added redundancy and security. It stores your mirrored data locally on-premises and also in a sharded, encrypted, and decentralized peer-to-peer cloud. ClearCenter automatically shreds , encrypts, and distributes your files across a decentralized network. No one else but you has access to keys or controls your files. The Decentralized ensures consistency and verifiability, while decentralization and redundancy on the network means that a local disaster or service interruption cannot cause a loss of data.

Decentralized Mining App

Most Cryptocurrencies require a proof- of -work model to mine coins requiring high CPU/GPU utilization that wastes both electricity and hardware resources. CLEAR is based on a secure proof- of- unused Space model that is less wasteful and more decentralized while enabling new capabilities.

ClearCenter’s ClearWALLET Decentralized-based wallet app functions as a hardware wallet, software wallet, or a hybrid wallet. Private keys can be protected from internal and external threats through DNS-based zero-trust model technology from ClearGM which controls all egress traffic from the wallet.

Strong Industry Experience of Leadership Team





The ClearFoundation is a New Zealand company which was created in 2009 with the purpose of developing and maintaining ClearOS under a Simple, Secure, and Affordable open source model. The foundation exists to ensure that every small business and distributed IT environment on the globe can have access to enterprise-grade IT security, privacy, filtration, and management tools.

ClearOS began life as ClarkConnect in May 2000 as an innovative and easy-to-use Linux-based operating system with a simple web-based GUI featuring automatic updates via a Service Delivery Network. The original developers of ClarkConnect (Peter Baldwin and Ben Chambers) continue to maintain and grow ClearOS today in addition to the thousands of Linux and open source developers and community members who maintain its core functionality from around the globe.



Formed by Founder and CEO Michael Proper in 2009, ClearCenter is focused on delivering stable IT solutions based on Cloud, Server, Network, and Gateway layers that make delivering IT highly scalable and easy to manage.

Michael's vision around a simple, highly scalable platform stemmed from his experience starting and growing DirectPointe, Inc. from its inception in 2000 to the top of its industry and its acknowledgment as the world’s No. 1 MSP in 2007-2008 by MSPMentor.

Today, ClearCenter supports more than 10 million end-users spanning more than 430,000 deployments in 154 countries worldwide and in over 86 languages.

Frequently Asked Questions

ClearFoundation General Questions:

ClearFoundation was privately funded until the release of CLEAR Token, at which time a small portion of the ClearFoundation CLEAR Token funds received will go toward funding ClearFoundation operations. (see: www.clearfoundtion.nz.co)
New Zealand has a stable economy and open Intellectual Property laws that provide fertile ground for enabling ClearFoundation to grow. Though other jurisdictions offer similar benefits, there were some patently clear reasons to set up in New Zealand. A couple of those reasons are around how New Zealand treats software patents and copyright laws and takes a pragmatic approach to financial regulations both in the short-term and long-term.
There are several advantages of becoming an incorporated society: 1) A society becomes a separate legal entity once incorporated. 2) An incorporated society can lease, rent, buy and sell property, borrow money and enter contracts in its own name. No member of the society can have personal rights or interests in any of the assets of the society. 3) An incorporated society will continue as a separate entity even though its membership changes. 4) Members will not be personally liable for the debts, contracts or other obligations of the society.
ClearFoundation was formed in 2009 in New Zealand as an organization focused on managing and developing the source code and repository of ClearOS, an open source Linux-based operating system. ClearCenter was also formed in 2009 and is headquartered in Orem, Utah. ClearCenter is focused on commercializing ClearOS and other open source applications and services, whether developed by the company or by members of the open source community.
Yes, it has developed under an GNU General Public License version 2 software license. ( see: https://www.clearos.com/clearfoundation/code/clearos-eula )
While there’s no way to be sure, probably not.

ClearFoundation IP & Copyright:

ClearOS is a modular Linux operating system consisting of hundreds of software components. The copyright for each component is located in the component's source code. Point Clark Networks Limited currently owns the copyright to webconfig and various other middleware components. The Point Clark Networks software is licensed under GPL. The copyright will be transferred to the ClearFoundation in the not-too-distant future!
New Zealand copyright protects the expression of ideas or information ? not the ideas or information itself. For example, if you write a novel, the text will be protected, but not the ideas or plot. Someone could write their own novel using your ideas, without necessarily infringing copyright. Similarly, if two authors independently create a similar work based on the same idea, without copying from each other or from someone else, there is no copyright infringement.
Yes. New Zealand is a party to various international agreements on copyright protection. This means that most works created by people in other countries are also protected under New Zealand copyright law. Similarly, copyright material created in New Zealand or by New Zealand citizens will be automatically protected in other countries.

CLEAR Token and Daily Bonanza Giveaway:

CLEAR Token is a digital currency and a utility token that enables a secure and reliable Blockchain platform and Dapp Marketplace. CLEAR Token is part of a larger vision between ClearFoundation, ClearCenter and other partners. See the questions below for more details.
Fifty percent of the proceeds from CLEAR Token will be used under a mandate from ClearFoundation to form and tokenize a natural and renewable, energy asset-backed Responsibility Endowment. This will allow ClearFoundation to continue to build, promote, and defend Blockchain-based and open source technologies in perpetuity and help to create one of the first true crypto assets. The remaining 50 percent of CLEAR Token proceeds will fund the expansion of ClearFoundation’s Blockchain Platform and Dapp Marketplace made available through ClearFoundation’s commercialization partner, ClearCenter, via ClearCenter’s Blockchain-based ClearNODE product line of managed hardware, software, and services (including the ClearSHARE app and ClearGM security service).
ClearFoundation's long term plans for CLEAR Token start out with a new Platform and Dapp Marketplace that makes Blockchain nodes, Dapps, local networks, servers, devices and families more secure (see clearnode.com for more info). CLEAR Token together with ClearFoundation, ClearCenter and a growing number of partners will enable the acceleration of new types of third-party Dapps across many industries starting with identity, healthcare, fintech and insurance just to name a few. Work is already underway for ClearFoundation and ClearCenter to release their own apps and Dapps including hybrid software/hardware digital wallets, digital currency exchange services, and public/private banking services. ClearFoundation and ClearCenter see the future as a Blockchain-centered world where individual rights, privacy, and security are of utmost importance. We believe citizens of the world should be able to interact with and transact with each other using any number of methods - including given the right to create micro-banking communities using the currency of their choice. ClearFoundation and ClearCenter also believe we as a human race are responsible to be stewards over our own domain and to conserve our planet's resources when possible. CLEAR Token is based on a Proof of Storage model vs. more traditional Proof of Work models that waste computational and natural resources due to the large consumption of electrical power and high levels of CPU/GPU utilization. (For example, in a November 2017 study, it was calculated that Bitcoin nodes consume more electricity than the entire country of Ireland.) Fully half of all proceeds from CLEAR Token will be used to form and tokenize a natural and renewable, energy asset-backed Responsibility Endowment allowing ClearFoundation and ClearCenter to help promote ClearFoundation and ClearCenter's values, stabilize CLEAR Token, and will also continue to build, promote, and defend Blockchain-based and open source technologies in perpetuity and help to create one of the first true crypto assets.
ClearFoundation's mission has always been to level the playing field for marginalized organizations without big enterprise-grade budgets. This philosophy also permeates into CLEAR Token. ClearFoundation wants to give as many people as possible the ability to earn CLEAR Token and participate in the future. ClearFoundation also wants to incentivize the activation of as many new nodes on the network as possible so future Dapps and Blockchain-based services can automatically take advantage of a robust ecosystem.
The CLEAR Token Giveaway Periods will start during August 2018.
There will be 1,825 total CLEAR Token Giveaway Periods over a 5-year period starting August 2018. Each period lasts 24 hours.
Yes, there is a 12-month holding period built into CLEAR Token. Exactly 12 months after the issue date of each CLEAR Token, it will become available for exchange.
CLEAR Tokens can be converted to ClearCenter credits and used to buy select hardware, software and services through ClearCenter. CLEAR Token owners are also free to trade CLEAR Tokens in secondary markets.
In 2018 only the ClearNODE for the Home (Personal) found here will be available using CLEAR Tokens. More ClearNODE line ( see: www.clearnode.com ) and ClearOS ( see: www.clearos.com ), ClearVM ( see: www.clearvm.com ), ClearGM ( see: www.cleargm.com ) and ClearGLASS ( see: www.clear.glass ) product will available in future quarters and years.
Yes, we are working on integration with the most trusted, secure reputable digital asset exchanges.
To see the CLEAR Token allotment for any given day, sign into your ClearFoundation Portal account, click on the Tickets section at the top, then scroll down to the calendar area. Mouse over any date on the calendar showing a country's flag to see the allotment for that country's Independence Day.

Today ClearNODE will fully protect every device in your home from inbound and outbound security threats. Soon you will be able to run a hybrid hardware/software digital wallet and also use ClearNODE as a decentralized storage service and/or earn CLEAR Tokens by renting out unused hard disk capacity. In the future we will enable new apps and services including private banking and exchange services.
Yes and no. If you want to achieve similar functionality then yes, you can wipe your Minebox, install ClearOS then install the ClearSHARE app from the ClearOS Marketplace. This will provide similar features and give you the ability to earn CLEAR Tokens by renting out your unused storage. Since ClearNODE is a fully managed service including new HPE hardware, and a set of managed software and security services, you wouldn’t be able to fully convert a Minebox to a ClearNODE since you would lose the all of the managed services. However, you could install ClearOS on your own x86 hardware and then install all of the other apps included with the ClearNODE bundle on your own via the ClearOS Marketplace app but you wouldn't get anything as a "managed service" vs. buying a new ClearNODE. Also depending on the edition of ClearOS you choose your support options will vary (from forum-only support up to phone/email). But you will be able to get most of the same features and apps that will come on a new ClearNODE.
Yes, configuration options depend on the number of hard disks installed.

ClearVM began with an acquisition by ClearCenter in 2015. ClearVM came with patents pending and were fully issued in 2017 for ClearCenter’s new disruptive IT deployment model. ClearCenter may use these to enter into other opportunities in the future. That being said, ClearVM uses KVM and libvirt and allows for easy interaction into the open source side of the virtualization stack. ( see: www.clearvm.com )
ClearVM 2.x is based off of CentOS. It has better functionality when dealing with network interfaces as well as having support for UEFI. ( see: www.clearvm.com )
If you use ClearVM 1.x, you will need to move your virtual machines to ClearVM 2.x before ClearVM 1.x becomes end of life. ( see: www.clearvm.com )
See https://www.clearvm.com for a list detailing the Free, Standard and Premium features.
We are not a hosting service. Our ClearOS 7 does run in a hosted environment. ClearOS 7 is also available to run on-premise, both stand alone and virtualized. Our ClearVM product is a virtualization platform for your on-premise servers. We do have an orchestration platform ClearGLASS to manage your cloud, virtual and physical machines as well. You would need an account with a cloud provider for a hosted virtual machine.
ClearVM is a virtualization platform that allows you to create, deploy, and manage virtual machines through cloud-based web portal on any physical server regardless of location.

ClearVM is free for up to 2 physical server and 8 virtual servers. Your bare-metal servers will be ready to host virtual machines within 10 minutes. You will not need to update your virtualization software. You don't have to install centralized management. You can also deploy most major operating systems including ClearOS directly from your ClearVM portal. Go to ClearVM.com to get started.
