Developers from the company DFINITY have started to create an open protocol that allows to unite users' computers into a single decentralized cloud platform, turning them into a kind of" Internet computer ". Developers report that they plan to compete with cloud services from Amazon, Google and Microsoft. The computers connected to the system will be able to share their mining capacities for a certain amount in the company's tokens.
The developers explain that they want to create a system capable of turning the Internet into a kind of a powerful computing center, combining, with the help of an open protocol of its own development, all users who connect to the DFINITY network created.
The resulting network of computers can perform the functions of the cloud platform, while ensuring maximum security and competitive prices. Based on this platform, it will be possible to create decentralized applications – for this, the developers of "cloud 3.0" will make a set of special tools.
Developers have already been able to attract about $ 100 million for development. Release of the beta version of the platform is scheduled for the end of 2018.
