This is the 3rd and final blog in our series about the NuNet private alpha. In part 1 we looked at the demo application that uses NuNet's software-hardware mesh, and part 2 went into more detail about the technical capabilities and features of this private release. In this part, we'll be looking at how NuNet's hardware-software mesh communicates with the applications running on it, and with the swarm of machines providing services, and how it joins them together to build ad hoc decentralized execution environments.

NuNet and SingularityNET strive towards similar goals in different sub-specialties: SingularityNET is building a decentralized…


After months of development, we are proud to announce that the launch of NuNet’s Private Alpha has arrived! The first post of this series, published a day ago, presented the user oriented aspect of the release – fake news warning application, built from AI Services running on NuNet platform.

This is an exciting release, as we can now run AI services in a truly decentralized way on NuNet’s dynamic hardware/software mesh, with many endpoints and geographically dispersed topologies – based on community provided hardware – all coming together in a single workflow.

Private Alpha allows Linux boxes to join the…


This is Part 1 of the mini-series of posts announcing and explaining the private Alpha release of NuNet. We start the series by introducing the showcase application that runs on NuNet’s Alpha and is constructed from SingularityNET Services. Full and current description of the NuNet private Alpha release and its main components is available on our website.

The simplest kind of marketplace involves just two parties: a buyer and a seller. While the two-sided platform is a timeless business model, some recent breakout companies, especially software platforms, are multi-sided marketplaces, involving other kinds of players beyond simply buyers and sellers. An example would be eBay, where buyers can buy from eBay itself, or from brands that sell their own products via the eBay platform. The brands, the platform, and the buyers form a multi-sided platform, a sort of mini-economy.

Other examples of multi-sided platforms are AirBNB, which involves guests, hosts, and the platform, or Uber, which involves drivers…


NuNet is designed to match compute demand with compute power. Alice gives compute power to Bob, Bob gives tokens to Alice. However, there are also cases where compute is transferred without an exchange of tokens. In these cases, the resource provider’s incentive is social, rather than economic.

The current state of volunteer distributed computing

Gathering computing power from volunteers into a distributed supercomputer is not a new idea. In 2008, the Guinness Book of Records recognised that the largest computation ever performed was a volunteer distributed computing project: SETI@home. …


NuNet is a global economy of decentralized computing. It allows computational runtimes, open-source and proprietary, to run in parallel and be combined, ready to be executed on any device that’s offering its hardware resources to the network. These runtimes can draw on data from various sources within the network, and any data provider can offer their data to be used by the network, and get crypto payments for it.

This post delves into how NuNet achieves this, taking a closer look at the components necessary to build this environment, and at how they fit together to enable emergent properties.

To give a…


Mid November last year, NuNet team has participated in Odyssey Momentum 2020 online hackathon within Nature 2.0 challenge. As a result, the team got the opportunity to work further within Nature 2.0 and Odyssey ecosystem towards a pilot project with other four Nature 2.0 teams and three large Dutch ecosystem providers. However, this post is not about that cooperation — we will inform about its fruits when they come about. Instead, I want to characterize the place we are in our research and development trajectory, perspectives that open from here and our short term plans to harness them. …


During the weekend of November 13–15, NuNet team is taking part at the Odyssey Momentum 2020 massive online hacking event within Nature2.0 challenge.

NuNet is building an intelligent, flexible and decentralized computational universe and machine to machine ecosystem by tokenizing and connecting scattered and fragmented computational resources of the world into a global economy of computational processes. As a spin-out of the global AI network SingularityNET we are using the SingularityNET’s technology for providing community sourced computing…


NuNet is building a framework that will be able to provide globally distributed computing power and storage for decentralized networks. We believe that there is a tremendous amount of unused latent computing resources available in the world that can be put to good use by enabling interoperability between owners of data, computing resources, and computational processes that demand them.

We are designing a flexible network that connects computing supply with demand from a variety of different sources to multiple types of endpoints. The platform envisions encompassing mobile consumer devices, edge computing and IoT devices, personal computers, servers, and data centers…


Interoperability layer

The mission of NuNet is to develop an interoperability layer that enables the connection of all computing resources and data of the world (mobile phones, personal and corporate PC’s, IoT devices and large cloud infrastructures) into a global computing framework. The goal is to make this globally interoperable protocol powerful enough to execute most computationally intensive tasks required by humanity, and integrate huge amounts of static and streaming data scattered across devices and locked in data silos around the world.

Biological metaphor

We believe that implementing and following radical decentralization principles is key for achieving this vision. While it may initially look…
