“Since I began working on Blockchain technology in 2017, I’ve been searching for the crossover of existing cloud technologies like Docker and Kubernetes, as those systems and the cloud in general, have been grappling with many of the same distributed systems problems. Akash Network, with its cloud native developer workflow, backed by a decentralized network, is the most exciting project in this space today. Their platform is a tremendous step towards the realization of the world’s first open, permissionless, and secure public cloud.”

Why Join Akash Network?
Akash Network is the world’s first decentralized cloud, offering developers an open, permissionless, and secure marketplace for unused compute cycles. Through Akash’s platform, developers can easily and securely access cloud compute at 2x-3x lower cost than the current market providers (AWS, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure). The platform achieves these benefits by integrating containerization technology with a unique staking model to accelerate adoption, built on Tendermint and Cosmos.
