Techniques described herein provide innovation directed to directing traffic through a distributed network. Packets can be received at a first node that is directed to a recipient in which the location of the recipient is unknown. The recipient can be determined to be a member of the distributed network based on information within a distributed ledger stored locally on the first node. The location can be determined to be within a geographical region based on a transaction recorded by the distributed ledger. The direction of the packets can be obfuscated based on determining that a second node is outside the geographical region and generating a tunnel from the first node to the second node to send the packets to that second node. A subsequent node to the second node can direct the packets to the geographical region.
