A company by the name of Polyswarm is looking to revolutionize the cybersecurity space with the creation of a malware-fighting marketplace that is designed to bring together cybersecurity experts from around the world to develop new solutions, with their efforts fueled by a special cryptocurrency token called Nectar.

In recent years, there has been a spate of malware and viruses taking over people's computers and causing widespread havoc. According to the people behind Polyswarm, one of the problems with the current setup is that cybersecurity experts don't have enough incentive to proactively go out and identify new malware so that they can be stopped before they spread.

This is where the Polyswarm malware-fighting ecosystem comes in. By rewarding security experts with Nectar cryptocurrency, Polyswarm hopes to sweeten the pot for people with expertise in fighting online viruses, helping to create a safer Internet for all.
