Anonet

?

Freenet

A darknet that is primarily concerned with censorship rather than privacy. It is used for storing data. Will expose your IP unless you use another darknet (ie a VPN) in conjunction, or only use peers you trust.

Tor

The most well known of darknets, and one of the first. One of the best for circumventing firewalls. Tor operates by routing a given connection through a series of nodes, and optionally a bridge if necessary.

Utopia

?

I2P

The second most well known darknet, I2P operates in a peer-to-peer manner.

I2Prouter https://geti2p.net/ Written in Java, the standard router
I2P+ https://i2pplus.github.io/ A fork of the Java router
I2Pd https://i2pd.website/ Written in C++, is easier on resources and more minimal
Kovri https://web.getmonero.org/resources/moneropedia/kovri.html [Archive] An in-development i2p thing designed for the Monero/XMR cryptocurrency

Gnunet

?

Lokinet

An onion router that seeks to fix Sybil attacks by way of having exit nodes be invested in. http://web.archive.org/web/20211228031014/http://cheapskatesguide.org/articles/lokinet.html

VPN

A Virtual Private Network. Usually paid. Make sure to read the fine print and make sure they have a no logs policy.

Unlike Tor or others, a VPN is almost always one hop to a single node. If that node is compromised, so are you.

Name Offers Static IP Payment Description
IVPN No[1] Accepts Monero ?
Mullvad No[2] Yes[3] (previously you had to buy via proxy) Generally well regarded other than their Mozilla partnership for MozillaVPN
OVPN Yes[4] Accepts Monero Used by the PirateBay[5][6]
ProtonVPN Has free tier Not regarded highly
RiseUp No Free/Invite Only (See FAQ regarding invites) Unreliable

Another option would be to purchase a VPS (with Monero/XMR) and then setup WireGuard or OpenVPN on it, over Tor or I2P for maximum anonymity, and then use that as your VPN. It would only be one "node" however, but would include a dedicated IP. SSH Tunnels are another possible option.
