Hey @thedg245, how are iExec compute prices determined? Is it automatic with some calculator or do you have any ability to change them

The Developer ((D) app) indicates the price. This price is expressed in nRLC. Workers will have to own 60% of the requested nRLC. The decentralized marketplace and schedule and based on the logistics and reputation, the task is settled large or small. Much is not clear yet who joins the distrubed compute. A datacenter has between 50k / 80k intotal servers. Edge compute will focus on private to public chain. As the scalability of the EVM becomes more mature, this will work as a stack. Cost models will relate to service contracts, subscriptions. Investors will find RLC. Regulation and capitalism can not be ignored.

Another milestone has just been reached!IBM Cloud has joined iExec, allowing enterprises to run their most sensitive workloads on shared hardware.https://medium.com/iex-ec/ibm-cloud-joins-blockchain-startup-iexec-to-increase-the-security-of-decentralized-computing-72e6ee8f8d3a

Amazing news
https://www.ibm.com/blogs/bluemix/2018/11/iexec-integrates-ibm-cloud-to-increase-the-security-of-decentralized-computing/

I believe that the EVM that is created brings a true change in how we deal with data. IExec is going to be used extensively (datacenters & 3rd party trusted devices) and we will see interesting earnings models on this infrastructure. We are still in an early stage to have an answer to all questions.first A decentralized solution in key Management with IBM / Fortanix, public workers and scalability on the mainnet.

That’s why decentralized cloud computing have a bright futur

That’s why decentralized cloud computing have a bright futur

Many more sites that than too, not just the crypto related. The webpage and mobile app of South Korea's largest e-commerce firm could not be accessed either. Korean community manager, Kang, was saying this was the biggest news in Korea today. That 'Single point of failure' 😉 Its one of the main arguments for decentralized networks- supported by, and distributed over multiple nodes

Though iExec could do sth similar in France :)!!

@Lotwana Marketing hasn't been the #1 focus of the team. They've been working hard since the ICO on delivering an actual working blockchain product (v3 on its way). In the form of a decentralized marketplace. Their marketing was mostly catered towards enterprises and developers. They went around the world basically every week presenting iExec to anyone willing to listen.Perhaps strange to mention, but this gave iExec a slight advantage in 2018 imho. Now the market demands intrinsic value, real supply&demand, and actual usuage instead of pretty words on a whitepaper and creating unnecessary incentive models. And iExec seems a lot further ahead in this.

How does iExec differ from Golem or SONM?Golem, SONM and iExec have their own visions for the common goal for a new Internet enabled by the blockchain. However, their respective go-to-market strategies differ. Golem’s network aims to attract regular 3D rendering by supporting computations for Blender 3D rendering software. SONM aims to approach fog and edge computing from the beginning.At iExec, we invision an ubiquitous decentralized cloud where developers deploy their legacy application on top of iExec using our SDK. With this, the possibilities are endless.

Oleg will be leading a workshop at Imperial College London on Friday, demonstrating how developers can use the iExec SDK to easily turn their applications into decentralized ones. Come along! 🎟 Registration: https://t.co/CnWBX3L10f

hi guys, i'm doing some research on decentralized cloud computing companies to see if anyone is making any money yet by renting out their copmutational power or is buying power for rendering or ML fitting?

CryptoBond
Or only computing?

iExec is aiming for decentralized cloud computing. Sia, Storj are example of decentralized storage

i strictly trade DEX, mostly through any bitshares DEX, there is enough liquidity for me, not sure why most people dont, think its just a matter of time before more people start using them

I have tried BTS DEX. Liquidity is quite low for anyone who trades with some amount of volume and the spread on most assets is completely uncompetetive. Big problem they have is that the order books for same assets across different dexes in the BTS ecosystem are not combined into the same liquidity pool but are separate. Right now convenience of the CEX + amount of fees you save wins over the decentralized aspect.

Decentralized cloud computing is gaining momentum, and those who need it are already considering solutions for themselves. Competition is necessary as a growth factor for service enterprises. The best solution is iExec, the pioneers of distributed computing. A lot of work has been done so far, the first decentralized market of computing resources, working pools, market for decentralized applications, PoCo, iExec E2E Intel SGX solution, before the official release in May, many more updates will.

Im very eager to learn more about v3 and the data market

I am also, @ThirteenCircles😃 curious for the following developments with Parity, 0x & RSK, IBM Cloud Data Shield / Fortanix, Scone University of Dresden and Shanghai Tech University. The developments in decentralized marketplace and Interprise Ready, Enterprise Ethereum Alliance Off-Chain Trusted Compute Specification V1 for April 2019 and Flexible Launch Control from Intel that makes it possible to activate 3rd party enclaves etc.

Hi Blair. Excellent start of the year, waiting for more news and videos!

It is exciting to be exploring what has never been done before. Fog computing between devices, sharing data in completely decentralized way, not using any centralized cloud.- We are getting closer to the dream of true decentralization, where all devices are connected in an ‘Internet of Things’ world.

NLP is the ability of machines to understand and interpret language and the way it is written and spoken.Troubadour is a decentralized application that is already bridging the gap between data on a computer and human language.https://medium.com/iex-ec/troubadour-a-natural-language-processing-platform-using-decentralized-cloud-computing-70cc04e8e03d

Will iexec attend it
Last year iExec was invited to IBM think. For this year I do not know if there are plans for this.https://medium.com/iex-ec/iexec-presenting-trusted-execution-environments-for-decentralized-cloud-at-ibm-think-las-vegas-32a06c2f0cab

- All but the most basic Ethereum applications need iExec to carry out their computations ‘off-chain’. As it stands, heavy calculations are not feasible on the blockchain. (As much as we still have all the love for Ethereum💙)Aside from that, even non-blockchain ‘legacy’ applications can be decentralized with iExec, benefiting from many of the advantages of decentralization.

Decentralized cloud? Right?

Yesterday I read the report of Deloitte's 2018 global blockchain survey and it strikes me that there is a lot of movement in blockchain. But that nobody can really tell where this Consortium of these databases will develop. I also find it typical of this report that only 3 emerging disruptors are mentioned of which 2 represent decentralized storage in the blockchain.But what I understand is that you can also get this on IBM Cloud https://cloud.ibm.com/catalog/services/data-store-for-memcacheAlibaba and IBm cloud are the only ones that offer SGXSo from Deloitte's point of view, I believe they have a share in the examples mentioned in the report.It is a bit this case:The rules of blockchain:Rule # 1 - You probably do not need blockchainRule # 2 - You probably can not live without blockchainRule # 3 - By the time rule # 2 is true, you will not know you're using blockchain😄

BTC value appreciation was first based on the idea that it would in the future be a highly fungible, widely adopted medium of exchange (meaning store of value, because it would represent access to resources and services in general, and held for the purpose of future use), and then later greater fool theory based on the "digital gold" idea.As a single-service-use token, RLC likely cannot appreciate due to the same psychological motivations people had for buying and hoping for the appreciation of bitcoin value.Adding value later somehow in a way that is entirely unrelated to game theoretically useful tokenomics can be done, like adding a modest token burn on every payment. Some who performed ICOs have done this and it is a decent way to reward investors with appreciation. Something like the decentralized platform utility token version of the classic stock buyback.I wonder if they would really wish to do that though. I have heard no talk about it. Adding a fee based token appreciation mechanism that is not useful for the functioning of the network besides possibly to provide supply/demand stability and liquidity when it comes to tokens on exchanges, for marketplace users simply passing through the RLC token in order to exchange computing resources with fiat. Hmm I guess that could be argued to be justification enough, though some would disagree (not me).I'm more curious about things that is already known that will be there that affects token velocity. If there will be an update soonish regarding the good-actor-credibility staking function for suppliers, or even better, additional staking functions that provide some other utility for the marketplace, I will definitely check up regularly and spread the word if it looks promising for token velocity reduction beyond the medium of exchange function.

They say immediatly we are not a decentralized platform

Quick question - we have some large enterprise customers who are sick of using AWS and paying so much. We think some sort of decentralized compute partner could be of help but find that iExec's current model isn't necessarily ideal for partners.

If we look at companies that are trying to be like iExec, you have SONM, MGD, Golem, Dfinity, etc... these are all amatures and most of them have no experience in grid computing... I don't think any of them do... Sure they may have there own developer skills, blockchain experience, etc... But try to find a decentralized computing asset that has ANY experience in desktop/grid computing... Try to find any competitor with as much research, history, and developments as iExec... \

Environmental sensors + ubiquitous 5G connectivity + Blockchain level trust= autonomous and decentralized smart city and smart car uses. One of our working partners will share an article one one particular use case we've been exploring 😄

Is any company using RLC ? Where I could see hash rate of RLC network?
https://market.iex.ecThis is the first-ever decentralized marketplace for computing resources. You can trade computing resources like a commodity. Many dapps are using iExec network for computing resources.And many big companies like IBM, TF cloud is in our workerpool. They are going to provide their computing resources in iExec network

Yes, the idea is not to focus too much on this one specific demo but rather to imagine what is possible

What we have to think about is: as 5G connectivity increases, more people will want to connect to networked devices to access services. As IoT becomes more present, smart cities in which multiple connected devices such as cars, drones or robots carry out a multitude of complex and sensitive tasks autonomouslyThe demo shows that Blockchain-level consensus and a trusted execution environment (using Intel SGX) enables solutions to operate on a decentralized basis, autonomously and without a controlling central authority. While data owners remain in control of their assets and can control who can use them.

5G has been one of the main talking points at MWC19. iExec, alongside Intel are overcoming its challenges for decentralization and privacy.Learn more about the collaboration, that uses robots for decentralized 5G-based smart city services:https://medium.com/iex-ec/iexec-and-intel-showcase-5g-and-blockchain-use-case-for-smart-cities-at-mobile-world-congress-2019-987be6972527

There’s other projects, and my guess alot of companys are waiting out which one to use

We can say that many projects are still in development phase. We know there has been a lot of interest in decentralized and distributed cloud solutions and we are building the infrastructure to provide the best and most secure solution possible.
