Golem enables users and applications (requestors) to rent out cycles of other users’ (providers) machines. Any user ranging from a single PC owner to a large data center can share resources through Golem and get paid in GNT (Golem Network Tokens) by requestors.
Golem utilizes an Ethereum-based transaction system to settle payments between providers, requestors and software developers. All computations take place in sandbox environments and are fully isolated from the hosts’ systems.
Software developers are in the center of Golem’s ecosystem: Our Application Registry and Transaction Framework enable anyone to deploy, distribute and monetize applications in the Golem network.
Together with the development of Golem’s core infrastructure, our focus is shifting towards creating tools for developers and software companies. These tools will allow to create and develop applications using Golem’s infrastructure as a competitive source of computing power and a viable alternative to existing cloud providers.
Golem Network is meant to be an infrastructure for developers to build and share their own distributed task frameworks and to monetize their ideas. The Golem team is dedicated to creating an ecosystem providing developers with unlimited resources and freedom.
