What is CPUcoin

We’re building a cutting-edge Infrastructure-as-a-Service solution

The Content Generation Network (CGN) is our new Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offering. We will pay you (and anybody) to let us use the idle time of servers, mobile devices and PC computers.

We will pull together these unused resources and restructure them into a vast, highly scalable, reliable, edge-capable, CDN-compatible, robust network of highly available compute resources.

We will then lease this infrastructure in the form of a distributed services delivery infrastructure to the operators of cloud-based applications, who will use our powerful, convenient and reliable systems to operate their services at scale, and at much lower cost.

A new utility token called CPU Coin will enable any customer to pay as they go.

Today’s massive adoption of cloud-based client-server applications be it web-based software, software installed on PC’s or one of the 2-3 million mobile apps available, has resulted in tremendous growth of the need for cloud infrastructure, required to reliably operate the services that power these applications.

Problem State

Problems related to global compute infrastructure

Inefficiency of consumption

Reliable compute infrastructure is costly to acquire and operate. This results in difficult-to-meet needs commonly shared by businesses that sell internet-based applications and services.

Data centers have huge capital costs associated with their sophisticated operational systems. Cloud infrastructure services, themselves hosted in data centers, have the same underlying expense structure and are usually even more costly to use.

Untapped supply of capacity

Inefficiency of utilization

There exists a vast amount of untapped global CPU power in the form of computers that sit idle or are not fully in use.

These are computers worldwide that are powered on 24 hours a day, but which sit idle most of the time, not being asked to do any work.

Often these computers are spare capacity servers kept online and ready for use, but other types of resources often run underutilized.

Solution

Introducing the Content Generation Network

A cutting-edge infrastructure-as-a-service solution which taps into the growing amount of global unused compute resources and restructures them into a vast, highly scalable, reliable, edge-capable, CDN-compatible, robust network of highly available compute resources.

Cross-licensing deal

Current Customers of MediaRich

MR.io_logos
  • To ensure adoption, CPUcoin will kick start the ecosystem through a cross-licensing deal with Equilibrium
  • Equilibrium will port its battle-tested MediaGen image processing services to run as the first DService.
  • This will put the following enterprise users onto the CPUcoin Content Generation Network upon release
  • Mediarich will provide an initial major user for the service, while working hard to drive continued adoption and growth of the ecosystem through a plan to port an ever-increasing number of applications to run in the CGN
Currency

Creating a sharing economy

CPU Coin (ticker symbol CPU) is a decentralized cryptocurrency that is equivalent to a specific deflation-adjusted amount of computational power having no central owner. CPU Coin is used as a means of transacting in computational resources within the CGN platform, which runs autonomously.

CPUcoin-minted

A new utility token called CPU Coin will enable any customer to pay as they go. As the native currency of the CGN, it will be used to pay for all consumption of services, as well as being used to pay out to the many providers of idle computer time.

This levels the playing field for any sized organization to make scalable client/server apps without all the upfront infrastructure costs.

CPUcoin will isolate users from price fluctuations in the CPU Coin so that the service will not increase in price when the CPU Coin appreciates in value.

CPUcoin will do this by pricing our services in fiat currency, and actively converting between fiat currency and CPU Coin on behalf of users of the system.

Tokenomics

We are defining one CPU Coin as being equivalent to the amount of computational resources that could be purchased for €1.00 on AWS on January 31, 2019. See White Paper for further details on CPU Coin equivalency to computational resources .

Frequently asked questions

Below we’ve provided a bit of Solution, Technical and ICO related questions and answers

CPUcoin is developing a first-of-its-kind Content Generation Network (CGN). A unique, flexible, and scalable Infrastructure as a Service offering targeted at the needs of B-to-B. A distributed system for delivering services that power DApps (Decentralized Applications) – both consumer AND enterprise-class. The CGN is a general-purpose ecosystem, uniquely architected to excel in providing services that meet demand in real-time, processing requests to perform the specialized work needed to generate and deliver vast amounts of content consumed by DApps globally. The CGN ecosystem is exclusively powered by a new utility token called CPU Coin (Ticker symbol: CPU)

What makes the CGN unique is its design that capitalizes on the vast amount of unused CPU power available across the globe, enabling a new sharing economy for CPU resources. The CGN amasses a pool of compute resources of unknown and inconsistent availability and reshapes that into a massive, powerful and coherent infrastructure service, one which provides overall consistent availability and excellent performance. Due to the relatively low value associated with idle CPU power, we can offer a lower cost means of delivering services. We have coined the term DService (Decentralized Server Application) to mean any service built or adapted to run in the CGN.

To competitively price our Private sale we are making 50 million Tokens available at €0.15 per token plus 50% bonus tokens. All tokens are combined and have a 12 month unlock period starting immediately upon purchase.

This project will be tested and used by Equilibrium for their Content Compliance Cloud buildout, which will adopt the CGN for use with an existing product line. This product line not only has a proven track record, but also has a new Microsoft Cloud Alliance Partnership and a new hosted cloud service with a large target growth plan. Please see the following link for more information: https://equilibrium.com/equilibriumnew/content-compliance-cloud/

Yes! We will use a readily available, scalable off-chain time-series database system to store microtransactions, and strategically connect it to the Ethereum blockchain. This solution will provide the performance and throughput benefits of a time series database, with all the benefits of proof of correctness of the blockchain. We are confident that we can create a system that is tightly scoped to our needs that will not be complex to design, build and deploy.

In a client-server implementation, this is the server component. It is a piece of server software developed to run within the CGN environment. The DService executes requests made to it in accordance with a well-defined API that it exposes, and performs all forms of specialized, compute-intensive work tailored to the needs of a specific DApp or family of DApps.

A US-based company engaged in the business of developing and providing premises and cloud-based media processing software. Equilibrium has an established product family and has spent years building product demand and has also built a significant established user base. Equilibrium wishes to expand the reach and capacity of its product line by being among the first to make use of the CGN, DApps and DServices to provide global, highly scalable image processing services in compelling new ways.

The first DService, licensed from Equilibrium and built on proven technology. MediaGen DService will leverage the CGN to provide the services layer needed to power the MediaGen family of DApps and client applications. The MediaGen DService operating within the CGN ecosystem, will provide the services for performing general purpose, near real-time request handling for image, animation, font, audio/video, dynamic processing and rendering operations.

For contrast, content Delivery Networks (CDN’s) are an existing technology designed to decentralize the delivery of static assets to client applications (such as Web browsers, but also DApps) so that end users are always able to access Web assets from a server geographically close to their computer. This greatly shortens traffic roundtrip times and improves the user experience. This also helps manage load spikes on the central asset storage and delivery mechanism when many users around the globe try to request the same asset simultaneously. The CGN differs from a CDN in that the CGN emphasizes generation rather than distribution. The CGN is a breakthrough technology that, for the first time ever, applies the principles of a CDN to dynamic content, decentralizing its generation, and ensuring consumers of dynamic content will be ability to obtain custom-generated assets as quickly as possible from a server in close geographic proximity to their computer.

The CGN by design is also CDN-compatible, meaning that the CGN itself can be wrapped by a CDN for even more robustness. The pairing of a CDN with the CGN yields both benefits, with the CDN preventing re-generation of the same content repeatedly, and allowing the delivery of the underlying dynamic content to also benefit from additional distributed, global caching by the CDN. This can relieve the CGN of unnecessary computation load caused by redundant regeneration of identical content

We will offer 5,000,000,000 (five billion) tokens.

The purpose of this stage is the early raising of funds to fund initial development of the project, and to operate the team and take the project through completion of the IEO. This portion of the crowd sale will be offered to a small number of qualified investors who will also offer their own expertise and guidance to help the project succeed through the IEO. For private sale inquiries please contact us at ieo@mediarich.io or on telegram @mediarichio

The public main sale will be structured as a series of offerings of a block size of 10,000,000 tokens distributed over a 29-hour period, repeating continually until all tokens have been sold. The 29-hour period guarantees that day by day, the final hour of bidding will land a convenient time of day near each time zone once every 4 days. This results in a pattern where the final hour moves from east to west 7 by time zones each day, thereby circling the globe roughly every 3 ½ days For more details on both the public presale and main sale structure please view our white paper.

An Initial Exchange Offering (IEO) relies on having an exchange (or set of exchanges) function as a counter-party. Developers mint the project’s tokens and send them to the exchange, which will then sell the tokens to individual contributors for Ether or BTC.
