Dear Blender Artists Community,
We would like to present you the Golem Project – a decentralised market for computing power. We are in the early alpha phase, focused on fine-tuning our first use case, which is CGI rendering in Blender.
You can use Golem to rent your computer when you do not need all its potential and to buy computing power whenever you need more. All transactions are direct transactions between users. Golem is somehow similar to Sheep it Render Farm, but there is a market for computing power behind it, with all price setting and competition mechanisms and Golem can be used for any computing, not just Blender rendering (ultimately, at the moment it is just Blender and LuxRenderer).
We are ready now for test with users and for scaling up our testnet. We kindly invite you to join our test: as early adopters you might have a head start with Golem, plus there are dozens of nodes in the network already, ready to crunch your renders. Rendering on testnet is free – we use a test transaction system, but tokens are of no value.
If you are interested in joining, please e-mail us to [email protected]. You may learn more about the project on our webpage and blog. You may also join us on slack. And you will find test & installation instructions here.
Ask us anything
Yours Golem Team
