Decentralised blockchain aims to challenge webscalers with carbon-neutral cloud computing


A carbon-neutral blockchain has said that its incentivised testnet will lay the groundwork for decentralised, permissionless access to high-performance computing at scale.

An article on Cointelegraph, describes Cudos, a layer-one blockchain and layer-two computation and oracle network that enables the scaling of computing resources to 100,000 nodes. It aims to bridge the gap between cloud and blockchain by making the world’s available computing power more decentralised.

With the launch of phase one of its incentivised testnet, Project Artemis, the blockchain plans to lay the foundations of a decentralised, competitive, fair, and sustainable computing market. Even in its early stages, Cudos has ignited a considerable amount of developer interest, with over 20,000 developers joining its waitlist.

“This stage is the culmination of many years of work. With over 20,000 developers signed up already, we’re excited to see what ideas and projects are created along with the NFT marketplaces, DeFi (decentralised finance) and games platforms already being built on the Cudos network,” said Matt Hawkins, the founder and CEO of Cudos.

Named after NASA’s ongoing human spaceflight mission, the article says project Artemis will be the first stage in building Cudos’s carbon-neutral decentralised blockchain. Its main goals will be to secure the network, get developers building and create a diverse network of validators.
