Render Network (RNDR) is a distributed GPU rendering network created on the Ethereum blockchain with the goal of connecting artists and studios in need of GPU computing capacity with mining partners willing to rent out their GPU capabilities.
Render Network will make the process of rendering and streaming intricate virtual works easier for all users. It will allow complex GPU-based render jobs to be distributed and processed on a peer-to-peer network, making the transactional process of rendering and streaming 3D environments, models, and objects much simpler for end users.
What are Render Token’s key features and how does it work?
Render uses a unique Proof-of-Render mechanism in order to verify transactions. Proof-of-Render is a combination of manual and automatic Proof-of-Work. This process involves verifying the given artwork is rendered appropriately before releasing the agreed funds for the rendering and the rendered artwork.
Whilst the artwork is being rendered, the RNDR funds are kept in escrow until the artist who has commissioned the rendering has manually verified the successful completion of the render. Node operators then receive and can distribute the payment once manual verification is received. As a deterrent to malicious behavior, networks assets are watermarked during the entire process up until payment is sent and the rendering is verified.
Owners who are looking to connect GPUs to Render Network can link their devices to the network and become a Node Operator. Upon becoming a Node Operator, users can accept rendering jobs from Creators and receive payment in the form of RNDR Tokens. Creators are anyone who requires rendering. They send their files to the network and are assigned a Node Operator for their task.
