About Computecoin (CCN)
Computecoin 101

Computecoin (CCN) is a decentralized cloud infrastructure with a Web2 user experience built to power all-purpose cloud services, backed by two granted US patents, two academic publications, and a world-class R&D team.

Provide an accessible Web2 user experience to enable users’ and developers’ seamless transition to a decentralized cloud.

Build a decentralized cloud by aggregating all types of compute and storage machines—similar to Expedia, which aggregates hotels.

In short, Computecoin bridges a critical industry gap by allowing users and developers to use and deploy applications on decentralized cloud infrastructure easily while offering a low-cost, private and reliable alternative to traditional centralized clouds, such as AWS.

Just as Expedia provides an end-to-end booking solution that eliminates intermediate steps, simplifying the booking process and ensuring a smooth trip, Computecoin provides an end-to-end solution for users and developers that sidesteps the steep learning curve of decentralized clouds such as Filecoin. Computecoin thus simplifies the development and deployment process and ensures a seamless transition to Web3.

A first mover in the decentralized infrastructure domain, Computecoin's story began in 2018, when the project was being developed in university research labs. After years of research and development backed by US patents, academic publications, and a world-class R&D team, Computecoin's cutting-edge technologies now include blockchain, merged mining, AI, edge computing, networking science, and many more.

Computecoin makes it easy for you to get started in all things Web3: AI, VR, AR, dApps, NFTs, and more by providing rich, low-cost, low-latency, and trustworthy computing and storage power for Web.3 pioneers. Plus, our secure and decentralized network ensures that your data is always safe.

Computecoin
AWS, Google Cloud, etc
Decentralization
Computing power provided by independent data centers, miners, mining farms around the globe
Computing power from data centers built and owned by a handful of corporate only

Low Cost
30% - 50% cheaper enabled by a hyper-competitive open market
Set by corporates; very costly

Broad Coverage
Computing power providers located globally, enabling a broader geo-coverage
Corporate owned data centers are limited in numbers and geographic diversity (e.g. very few in Africa)
Scalability
Easier to scale. Computecoin Network is capable of executing a multiplicity of intensive computing tasks
Scalability restricted by the availability and capability of nearby data centers
Low Latency
Computecoin provides low latency network services for end users via its proximity network
Higher network latency due to limited geographic diversity of corporate data centers
Reliability/Security
Reliability and security provided by blockchain technology and Computecoin's proprietary patent PoH.
Corporate self-report their statistics/results; lack of transparency

Autonomous Governance
Computecoin community
