ABOUT GLOBALCHAINZ

After four years of development, GlobalChainZ is a fully operational decentralized supercomputing network.

GlobalChainZ connects non-interoperable networks utilizing its own off-chain protocol to overcome current scalability issues of blockchains to directly challenge the entrenched oligopoly dominating cloud computing.

TECHNOLOGY

GlobalChainZ is a fully operational, turn-key solution for interoperable, low latency, and affordable Cloud Computing.

GlobalChainZ delivers the benefits of forging spare computing capacity of millions of devices around the world. It does not require technical knowledge for its usage which drastically expands the potential user base and instantly monetizes the idle computing resources of retail or enterprise devices, thus increasing profitability potential.

GlobalChainZ seamlessly integrates the best aspects of traditional cloud services and non-interoperable decentralized networks. The synergy between these technologies will allow complementary benefits in ways their creators never thought possible.

Advanced features to improve the network and the user experience:

Third Party Arbitration and Advanced Usage Efficiencies are integrated to improve blockchain optimization of both outcome verification and provider profitability

GPU, Multi-Platform, and Multi-OS Support creating network diversity, thus expanding target producer audience.

Legacy Application Integration with Auction & Adaptive Pricing to create a frictionless user experience to minimize barriers for enterprise adoption and non-technical user penetration.

Unique Security & Encryption embedded for additional layers of protection to meet heightened consumer and corporate demands.

SECURITY

GlobalChainZ is fully encrypted providing both the producer and end-user full security through the GCZ protocol.
The GCZ protocol does this by:

Encrypting both input and output data.

Avoiding open extra ports.

Using a multi-tenant system via hosting of third-party SaaS and data.

Utilizing symmetric-key algorithms for encryption and verification.

All traffic within the GlobalChainZ Network is secured using symmetric-key encryption. Even the same data transmitted by two different users in the network shows a complete different set of bits transmitted at the lower layers of the network.

PROTOCOL

GCZ is an off-chain, agnostic protocol. This makes it both considerably more scalable as well as interoperable with other decentralized technologies. The GCZ Protocol provides the following features:

SCALABILITY

GlobalChainZ abstraction layer on top of the Ethereum blockchain allows the GlobalChainZ off-chain protocol to asynchronously distribute computing jobs while the blockchain settles the transactions.

SPEED & EFFICIENCY

GCZ aggregates block verification when presenting transactions back onto the Ethereum blockchain for improved efficiency and a dramatic reduction of the block verification expense to the end user.

INTER-OPERABILITY

In the case of the GlobalChainZ Network being fully occupied with computing jobs, the extra / unallocated capacity can be offloaded to a centralized or a decentralized cloud provider.

Proof of Work Resources

The GCZ protocol uses Proof of Work Resources (PoWR) to create an incentive for Producers to participate in a competition for hosting a SaaS instance and calculating its results correctly demonstrating their contribution to the network. This forms the basis of earning GCZ tokens.

GCZ is a dark protocol, meaning there is no bias toward who is rewarded for computational power.

PoWR enables a useful blockchain framework that does not waste computing power on hash discovery, but rather shares these resources towards useful tasks required by the Consumers.

INTERFACE

The Producer Application incorporates potential profitability analysis allowing the user to input their electricity rate and setting their availability to the network (also available in a headless version for server implementation).

Producers can potentially improve their profitability by up the 10x through GlobalChainZ Saas deployment versus crypto-mining alone.

The Consumer Dashboard displays the user’s token balance, the user’s history, and the available job functions. New jobs are launched via this application. The end user can tailor their search based on budget and requirements of facility type, connectivity, availability and producer reputation.

GlobalChainZ substantially lowers the consumers’ cost of compute resources by up to 90% versus existing cloud-based solutions. The embedded job functions reduces adaptation and frictional costs incurred by consumers to implement solutions.

USE CASES

OPTIMIZED MINING

The verification mechanism that is critical to several crypto currencies like bitcoin involves a computationally intensive process known as block mining.

GlobalChainZ uses this well-known instrument to harden a robust network of computing resources , and a base line for Producers to monetize their shared devices.

GlobalChainZ can provide at least 10x the revenue with the same device and same energy, utilizing the same computing power. The automatic system always mines the most profitable coin, for each device at the moment of use.

AI/DEEP LEARNING

The computing resources provided by the GlobalChainZ network offer turn-key solutions to host up and scale up deep-neural network training software.

Being cost efficient means accessing more computing power at GlobalChainZ than on the current cloud providers at lower price.

Moreover, GlobalChainZ consistently supports existing machine-learning software like TensorFlow, Apache Spark, Caffe, including access to GPUs.

Artificial intelligence and Deep Learning require a lot of computing power. GlobalChainZ saves up to 90% of the cost of centralized cloud computing services.

IMAGE RENDERING​

Giving instant access to a vast pool of computing resources, GlobalChainZ can render images and videos at a competitive price compared with traditional render farms.

GlobalChainZ provides turn-key solutions for the most popular render engines available in the market.

MOLECULAR DYNAMICS

The decentralized network GlobalChainZ represents the next generation of accurate and verifiable scientific simulations, giving access to the computing power required to drive the research behind climate change, new materials, studying of deceases and similar.

We are currently running scientific simulations, helping scientific communities to conduct research in their fields.

HISTORY

GlobalChainZ was born in 2014 when the founders were analyzing the scalability issues of different blockchain implementations.

GlobalChainZ seeks to create the largest peer-to-peer network to monetize computing resources throughout the world, connecting non-interoperable networks utilizing its own off-chain protocol.

Overcoming current scalability issues of blockchains are a crucial challenge every blockchain-based project is facing. GlobalChainZ approach in this sense is a key contribution to the further development of blockchains in general.

On the other hand, GlobalChainZ is directly challenging the entrenched oligopoly currently dominating cloud computing, democratizing the space and ultimately delivering computing power to a wider public at a much more affordable price.

THE PRODUCT

GlobalChainZ is a working product. The network is currently accessible by a selected group of users who are helping to reach the level of robustness and minimal infrastructure required for the network to go live.
