Golem publishes a video demonstration of Unlimited, a feature that allows nodes to create an internal trusted network for sharing computing power under their own policy
The Golem Project is an open-source distributed computing network running on the Ethereum blockchain. With Golem, anyone can rent or rent out computing power. Golem seeks to provide a computing platform for a wide range of fields such as computer graphics, big data analysis, machine learning, cryptography, DNA analysis, protein folding simulations and more.
According to the roadmap blog post, the Golem team has discovered a need for closed shared-power groups, as there seems to be a certain lack of trust between individual nodes. Rightfully so, as each acts as an independent market participant.
With Unlimited, Golem looks to address this need and adds a feature that allows for the creation of trusted networks with specially designed power-sharing policies and rules.
Golem Unlimited is meant for medium- and large-scale setups with idle computing power like data centers and hardware-renting companies. Unlimited features a hub acting as a requestor and computers in the hub’s trusted network are providers. The shared processing power is made use of via a plugin installed on the requestor’s machine. In the video demonstration, we can see a mining plugin being used to mine ETH and XMR.
