Truth and facts[edit]

  • Golem is helping to power personal computers to be able to take on roles specifically reserved for servers, computer farms and supercomputers. Golem helps to activate a P2P network, a traditional trading system and many other features.
  • Golem is basically Airbnb for computers. Rent your CPU/GPUs, get paid in cryptocurrency. A truecloud compute platform.
  • Golem is a global, open sourced, decentralized supercomputer that anyone can access. It's made up of the combined power of user's machines, from personal laptops to entire datacenters.
  • Anyone will be able to use Golem to compute (almost) any program you can think of, from rendering to research to running websites, in a completely decentralized & inexpensive way.
  • The Golem Network is a decentralized sharing economy of computing power, where anyone can make money 'renting' out their computing power or developing & selling software.

Official

  • Slogan: Worldwide supercomputer.
  • Golem (GNT) is based in Warsaw, Poland.
  • Golem is the new way the internet will work.

The Golem Project

00:00 Golem is a creature from Jewish mythology, it's a creation of man that collects all the bits of pieces of Golem, essentially it's made of mud and create something called sheer power and something that haven't exists before and give us opportunities and possibilities never seen before.
00:25 What is Golem? we are quite convinced that not so far into the future, internet will be much more decentralized than it is today, and this will require new infrastructure.
00:37 And Golem, Golem seems to be developing solution to this problem.
00:40 Not only to distributed computation but decentralized computation.
00:43 Golem is a new way of distributing computing between computers over the public network, where users can sell their redundant computation power the users who need it.
00:56 This means that you can compute your tasks on other people's machine.
01:01 Technically, golem is a peer-to-peer network, meaning that users join on equal basis and there's no central authority or no one is more important than anyone else.
01:11 What is it for? you can use Golem safety computation, for AI, artificial intelligence requires quite a lot of computation, in distributed, you can split it into small tasks.
01:22 I don't know, in chemistry for example, you can search for new molecules, Golem would do the job perfectly.
01:30 For example, when you're an artist or an architect that has created this 3d model of a house and would like to see a photorealistic image of it, so he can use Golem, split this path into smaller parts then send it to the network and each person will compute a small part of the image and they will compute this in same time, so everything will be quicker and then there has also to be sent back on the artists machine and Golem will put it together whether.
02:02 Modelling, folding proteins, research for new medicals, and even mining cryptocurrencies, I would say that the sky's the limit.
02:14 Distributed computing is nothing you, you have it in a cloud, you have it even in hosting of services, you have it in a cloud storage, so what is really new is that we plan to use not a bunch of servers summary in Google or in Amazon, but we want to give you a possibility of using the power of computers around you, contributed to the network by other people or neighbors or people living in the same country or in the same continent for money.
02:45 So you pay them for using their computers.
02:48 And this is where Golem with it's significantly lower prices will be a very attractive alternative.
02:56 At first, not we will pay the money but other users are in need of additional computing power will pay for using other users computers.
03:03 The economics of our business model comes down to commissions for every transaction between users of Golem Network.
03:12 So this means there will be a fee on every completed computing tasks are on every unit of time software as a service is applied to complete these tasks.
03:22 Users can join Golem to become producers or consumers of computational resources or to switch between the two roles.
03:30 This means that we will join the market of software as a service and infrastructure as a service which could potentially grow by 40 billion dollars over the next few years.
03:41 What is the challenge? just the idea that you could rent your idle computing resources for money seems to be a very obvious way of organizing internet, but that is the technical part that is difficult and this is what we spent last year on.
04:01 The first one is transaction system, in payment system.
04:03 For micro transactions the transaction fees, with even with Bitcoin, are so large that they sum up to amount that is bigger than the payment, okay.
04:16 So we have to come up with some micro payment scheme.
04:20 We're going to z/2, the term is a new blockchain technology that can be used to implement a contract that would use some sort of lottery send the money to participants.
04:32 User that has to pay, organizes a lottery in which only one participant gets paid.
04:38 This lottery approach may seem unfair for most the participants, but if a user takes part in a lot of lotteries over a period of say few weeks, then over time the long run, her income would be predictably the same as if she were paid small amounts each time.
05:03 Provided that you still take part in computation, that should make people more interested in taking part in it.
05:08 So you can imagine a Golem as a some kind of extension of Ethereum that will bring market for sharing computing powers to the table.
05:20 There will be a problem with unfair users.
05:23 For example, we can imagine situation where there in the network are users who want to be paid but they don't want to compute anything or they just send a wrong result.
05:36 We implement ranking protocol but especially for them so that they won't take part in computation the network in general.
05:43 We know that they can appear from time to time but we have to get rid of them as soon as possible so that other participants simply can do their job.
05:52 At the end of the day, we hope that Golem will not only give scientists and businessmen new way of doing computation but will also change the way internet is working.
06:05 Golem for me is a challenge, it's a very challenging problem but the problem that we know how to solve.
06:10 And yeah, it's undertaking that I believe can result in something spectacular.
