Golem – Distributed Computing Energy

@wp: That is very simplified, however 1 GNT right this moment prices roughly $0.05. In case your electrical energy price = $0.20 per kwh, then electrical energy price = 4 GNT/kwh. (i.e. $0.20/$0.05). Assume your electrical energy price in 5 years in fiat phrases received’t price way more than right this moment, say $0.25/kwh. However let’s say, hypothetically, in 5 years, GNT is double right this moment’s worth. Due to this fact, in 5 years, electrical energy will price 2.5 GNT/kwh (i.e. $0.25/$0.10). In different phrases, by holding GNT, you’ll be capable to purchase nearly twice as a lot kwh of electrical energy in 5 years given these assumptions. There are implicit assumptions right here too, however for the sake of simplicity, I omitted them. And naturally, the electrical energy which you’ve got bought will probably be within the type of compute energy.

  • Objective is for first iteration of Golem (Brass) to be prepared for business use by the tip of June.
