Without storage, network and compute capacity, there would be no Internet. Think of the capacity layer as being the foundation of the new Internet. It is where farmers distribute and connect 3Nodes (hardware equipped of ZeroOS software) to the ThreeFold Grid.
Any application which can run on Linux, can run on the ThreeFold Grid but with more speed, cost-efficiency, privacy & security, sustainability, and more. Any individual or organization can utilize the ThreeFold Grid's capacity for any current or future IT workload - such as Blockchain, IoT, 5G, AI and VR/AR, and benefit from improved performance.
The ThreeFold Grid represents the most advanced and only true peer-to-peer network of capacity in the world.
Consists of 3 Nodes - affordable, secure and
highly efficient cloud storage units that can be purchased
and hosted by anyone for about 1000 USD
Data hosted on the ThreeFold Grid costs 70% less compared to other cloud providers.
People that run 3 Nodes are called farmers. They are remunerated and incentivized to constantly expand the ThreeFold Grid by
generating ThreeFold Token (TFT) for the capacity provided
Algorithms prove that workloads on the ThreeFold Grid are executed as intended
Being decentralized and using the
greenest hardware available, the
ThreeFold Grid is able to save 90% energy compared to conventional data centers.
Deploys and operates the infrastructure
without human interaction.
Algorithms ensure the data is
hosted where it is needed
A storage algorithm inspired by
space-technology is used and ensures the
integrity of all data, even if some nodes go offline.
The self-healing operating system ensures
that in the unlikely case that a node goes down,
your data remains safe and available.
The ThreeFold Grid's capacity is made available by farmers - people who connect hardware to the grid. They contribute to a more sustainable Internet for generations to come. ThreeFold is changing the Internet for the greater good of all, and farmers play an important role in this journey.learn more
Farmers rent capacity to the ThreeFold Grid and get TFTs in return.
ThreeFold Farmers earn from (1) renting capacity to the ThreeFold Grid, and (2) when capacity is reserved by users.
Farmers exchange their TFTs for fiat or other crypto currencies.
Users exchange their fiat or other crypto currencies for TFTs.
To ensure 100% security, users can reserve capacity only with TFTs.
Users reserve capacity with TFTs, they pay farmers and a portion goes to the foundation.
Note that everything you do on the web today involves data that needs to be stored somewhere. Now users get to choose when, how and where to store their data.
Become part of the foundation of the new Internet. Anyone can host a node from any location as long as they have an internet connection and an electrical outlet. We invite the world to decentralize the Internet by connecting capacity to people and businesses around you with one of the two farming options available - Do It Yourself and Certified Capacity.
Buy or build any 3Node that can run the Zero-OS - can be new or refurbished hardware, in large or small quantities. DIY allows flexibility for connecting to the ThreeFold Grid.
ThreeFold's certified hardware is completely locked down and secure. They run capacity, network and compute at a higher cloud production rate than DIY 3Nodes.
