A Review of Distributed Supercomputing Platforms Using Blockchain
- 20 Downloads
体育赛事投注记录advances in blockchain technologies like the introduction of smart contracts and providing alternative solutions to payment systems have given rise to the idea of using blockchain and smart contracts as a backbone for distributed supercomputing. just like ipfs is used for distributed storage over the internet, the concept of distributing computing safely came into existence. distributed supercomputing is not new but using blockchain technology as a way of registering and rewarding the participating computers and users is novel. here, we analyse four of the many projects, namely gridcoin, golem, sonm and iexec and point out their strengths and failings.
