What is Akash?
Akash is a peer to peer marketplace for cloud computing resources, and a deployment platform for for modern distributed workloads. The big difference of the big value it provides compared to the incumbent (Amazon Web Services or AWS), it’s designed for a very modern developer. So what takes normally 10s of hours on a cloud takes minutes, right? So developers can do more with less. And it is private and permissionless. So there’s no signup, and incredible user experience that you get permissionless networks. And it’s, of course, unstoppable, since that’s becoming more and more important, considering what’s happening today. And, and in a big value is cost. I mean, costs anywhere from two to three X on a normal lower than the Amazons and Googles to Microsoft’s, in some cases, even 10 times slower. So that’s an incredible value proposition.
