💥  Cutting Edge with Shoal Research

In collaboration with Shoal Research, this week’s special feature will dive into Compute DePin.

Key Words

Compute: Processing power. 

DePIN: Blockchain protocols that build, maintain and operate physical hardware infrastructure. 

GPU: Graphics processing units. 

What is it? Compute DePin is a category of crypto projects that allows real world access to GPU and computational power. This type of power is typically used by AI training models. 

What does it do? Compute DePin allows users who need significant processing power to access decentralised computational power without having to run hardware themselves or pay for expensive services. 

Why is it interesting? Artificial intelligence models require significant computational power. As AI continues to grow the demand for GPU power will grow as well, making the Compute DePin very interesting.
