and Aethir Join Forces to Revolutionize How the World Accesses Supercomputing Power

Singapore, Singapore, April 22nd, 2024, Chainwire

In a move set to transform the computing landscape, and Aethir today announced a groundbreaking partnership to make supercomputing accessible to all. By combining their decentralized networks of hundreds of thousands of GPUs worldwide, they aim to become a shared hub for computing — enabling anyone to rent out their idle computing power and allowing all developers to affordably access the massive processing required to build cutting-edge AI.

The rapid rise of AI has created skyrocketing demand for computing horsepower. But for startups and developers, the only current options are building their own expensive server farms or renting computers from big corporations like Amazon and Microsoft — uneconomical approaches that stifle innovation. and Aethir are on a mission to change that. has built a vast decentralized network of over 600,000 GPUs and CPUs worldwide. Now, through this partnership, Aethir’s 40,000 top-tier GPUs, including 3,000 powerful NVIDIA H100s, will also plug into the network. Developers will be able to instantly tap into this aggregated computing power on-demand, dramatically reducing costs.

Breaking Down Geographical Barriers to Innovation

Geographical barriers to innovation will also crumble. Most of today’s computing infrastructure is concentrated in highly developed countries. For an AI startup in an underdeveloped country, precious data must inefficiently travel across the globe. But no longer. The network will crowdsource computing power in the developers’ own backyards, minimizing latency and costs.

And it’s not just developers who win. Anyone with an idle computer or high-performance GPU will be able to share their spare computing power, earning rewards in the process. It’s a win-win that democratizes access to tomorrow’s essential resource: computation.

To kick off their collaboration, and Aethir will airdrop $50M of each other’s tokens to their respective communities — a $100M commitment to accelerating the world’s computing transformation.

Executive Insights

The synergies between and Aethir are as obvious as they are extensive,” said CEO Ahmad Shadid. “We are delighted to work hand in glove to make supercomputing accessible to all.”
