Cloud computing — the process of offloading work to remote servers — is inherently broken. While it mostly works as advertised, we’ve found that inefficiencies still plague the system. The products produced by the major cloud providers are usable but they are limited to shortcomings that can be solved today with advancements in container technology and a powerful token economy. The purpose of this white paper is to put forward our plan for a cloud services market called Akash Network, the worlds first global spot market for cloud computing.

Cartesi creates Linux infrastructure for blockchain DApps

Article | February 18, 2020

DApps (sometimes called Dapps) are from the blockchain universe and so, logically, the apps part stands for application (obviously) and the D part stands for decentralised (only obvious once you know that we’re talking distributed immutable language here). According to the guides section at blockgeeks, DApps are open source in terms of code base, incentivised (in terms of who validates it) and essentially decentralised so that all records of the application’s operation must be stored on a public and decentralised blockchain to avoid pitfalls of centralisation. So then, Cartesi is a DApp infrastructure that runs an operating system (OS) on top of blockchains. The company has now launched a more complete ‘platform-level’ offering, which is described as a layer-2 solution
