Decentralized Serverless Cloud Services

Developing decentralized applications that can handle high scalability and compute-intensive tasks demands substantial computing resources. However, relying on centralized cloud providers is insecure and contradictory to the principles of Web3.

Acurast offers a unique decentralized cloud computing solution for dApp developers. There are over 6.8 billion smartphones globally, and the number is expected to surpass 7.1 billion in 2024.

Acurast utilizes mobile devices’ untapped computing power to create a decentralized cloud without servers capable of handling heavy workloads. The network allows individuals to earn rewards by simply sharing their device’s unused computing capacity.

By integrating with Acurast, developers building on Vara Network access decentralized computational resources previously unavailable through traditional cloud providers. Acurast users providing compute power through their smartphones will benefit from the rewards Acurast provides.
