Ratings and Reviews
Works with PIA!
Works as intended and your existing VPN provider! I hit an initial snafu with setting Orchid with PrivateInternetAccess but their support got back to me relatively quickly with a small fix. The UI is clean, navigation is ok & docs could be improved. That said, this is an exciting project & hats off to the team to pull off the MVP!
Developer Response ,
Thank you for reaching out to support, we sent you something to add to your OpenVPN config to get it to work. We're working on updating our documentation to make that easier. To delete a hop, swipe it and it will be removed.
So I was all in for a project like this that is geared toward protecting privacy; that’s a big deal that we should all care about, right? But then I listened to a few minutes of a recent Orchid podcast where the guest was an admittedly far-left liberal who is all about shutting down “misinformation” and basically shaming anyone that does not agree with her version of “science”. News flash: there’s a plethora of information that is all science-backed that can give a different perspective to even a far-left liberal if they take the time to read or listen. What a shame that a privacy-centric company that says they believe in privacy and individual rights, would promote that only far left liberal science is real. A total let down. Your user base does not have to be only far left liberals, unless that’s who you want to market to. And in that case, your middle-of-the-road or more conservative customers can take their business to where it is welcome.
Clearer documentation + better UX/UI needed
My OXT balance in MetaMask somehow got locked up, though I don’t recall initiating any staking. If I try and transfer any amount I get “insufficient balance”. I have more than enough OXT and ETH.
I think it’s how it draws the balance for the app to work. Adding more OXT to MetaMask just locks up that amt as well, there is no distinction between a tradable vs reserved balance. I think they’re trying to get there but the UI looks wonky and the UX could have done a better job of accomplishing MVP tasks.
Deleting the app is probably not what you want to do, especially if you had a paid account with a balance you hadn’t used yet.
I seemed to have lost access to my previous account, hence why this may appear as a new review vs editing the one I left about 1hr ago and the app asks for details to create a new account or access an old one.
I ended up getting the OXT out, which is what I was trying to do to begin with. I had to go through Uniswap, which looks like first it created a contract to control the OXT, then allowed me to swap it for ETH.
I think I’ll leave this one alone for a while. Needs work.
