Social recommendations and mentions

We have tracked the following product recommendations or mentions on Reddit and HackerNews. They can help you see what people think about Golem and what they use it for.
  • How do you break into the space and where is a good place to find projects to work on?
    Golem, develop Docker applications and make use of their (now) very limited features. It's best suited for heavy calculations, or calculations you can split up between dozens or hundreds of nodes through sharding. A fork is working on bringing GPU & internet access, but it can be hard otherwise. They have a GLM Rewards Program that - generously rewards up to 20 users per month under regular conditions. - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
  • Calling all developers, what are your opinions and experiences with various cryptocurrency protocols?
    For compute, my experience has been the best with Akash, then Golem, then I have been unsuccessful with any other project as of yet. Both of these supports Docker images, but Golem is painfully thorough with securing providers with sandboxing in both networking and workloads. This makes Akash easier to use right now when wanting to run something more advanced such as a custom backend or a Minecraft Server. - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
  • Isn't ICP a *clear* evolution of blockchain technology, am I missing something?
    If you want to run scientific calculations or similar, I highly recommend Golem. Right now, its best applications are ones that can scale by sharding, to use parallel computations. Think doing 100 similar small jobs on 100 computers instead of 1 large job on 1 computer. One average CPU-month costs $3.17, or you can rent 100 CPU-hours for $0.44. Notable examples are blender_cuda which runs on a GPU, and the... - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
  • Guys I need a new project! Please provide ideas!!
    If you're not using your computer, you can consider letting other people use it! Come checkout golem, a distributed super computer similar to [email protected], but for all kinds of computation not just protein research. You even earn some money and it's really easy to get started. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Electricity/Cooling: how do you all afford it?
    This is where the math of VPS on demand for testing vs home starts to matter. OR higher buy in but lower ongoing is SBC boards. Raspberry pi, turingpi, ION whatever boards from nvidia. All have higher cost, more limited abilities (in some ways) but FOR SURE are way lower power/heat than traditional low initial cost/higher ongoing. It's a common issue. Getting yourself a NAS or ESOS or SAN or whatever as an always... - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • What to do with 18,000 Cores?
    It is public and been running for a bit now, seeing as you asked I assume its ok for me to say its ? Definitely open though if you want to join. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Why would you build a Raspberry Pi Cluster?
    Run a node to rent out some pi's to others who can purchase their compute power, isn't much but glad to help someone when I'm not using it. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Got a PC? Golem will pay you for your unused CPU, RAM, and Disk
    Golem is a distributed and decentralized marketplace where users can rent and rent out computing power. You can specify how many CPU-cores, how much RAM, and how much Disk you want to rent or rent out - and you can also choose your own pricing. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago

  • Run Offline-Docker Apps on Golem
    Golem is a decentralized network where you can run Docker images on nodes, utilizing thousands of cores, and a massive amount of RAM and Disk. Here's a statistics page! - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago

  • Three questions relating to mining, how to spread out my coins and how to earn Crypto outside of mining and buy/hodl.
    Personally, I love bounties, hackathons, and so on. You'll get the most rewards if you're a developer, BUT you can also earn without being one. The GLM Rewards Program by Golem offers rewards for both developers and non-techy users. There's also GitCoin, which has a list of a lot of bounties and hackathons currently active from tons of projects. You can also find bounties elsewhere but you can spend enough time on... - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
  • Interesting crypto usually not mentioned on this sub
    I also think that Golem, Sia/Skynet, & Mysterium are worth considering. They are projects within Compute, Storage, and VPN. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Convince me to buy something other than ALGO...
    I would say that Golem ($GLM), Sia ($SC), & Mysterium ($MYST) all are interesting coins/projects. Compute, storage, and VPN. - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
  • Minimize loss from idle-servers
    Don't want to mine on CPUs? This might make you not like Golem - even though it isn't a constant workload and you can tweak how many cores, how much RAM, and how much storage you allocate to the node. If not, you can get started here. The Raspberry Pi's could also be running Golem nodes on any amount of cores too. Installment instructions for Raspberries can be found here. - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
  • Overview of Compute Projects
    I would say that there are three major projects right now: Golem, iExec, and Akash. I also found other projects but they seemed to irrelevant as they were either too small or exit scams. - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago

    If you want to go decentralized route: - Source: Hacker News / almost 2 years ago
  • Show HN: RentMyCPU – An open-source computational network
    Http:// and give you building blocks to build something similar to Got to say, despite HN's general aversion towards blockchain/crypto, the space is budding with some really interesting decentralized frameworks, platforms, and apps not possible before. - Source: Hacker News / almost 2 years ago
  • Why Decentralisation Matters
    Cryptonetworks are networks built on top of the internet that 1) use consensus mechanisms such as blockchains to maintain and update state, 2) use cryptocurrencies (coins/tokens) to incentivise consensus participants (miners/validators) and other network participants. Some cryptonetworks, such as Ethereum, are general programming platforms that can be used for almost any purpose. Other cryptonetworks are special... - Source: Reddit / about 2 years ago
  • These community projects are being ported to Golem’s mainnet
    No, Golem is an infrastructure project that provides web 3 developers with decentralized computing power that they can pay for with an erc-20 token. We've been here since 2014, and probably our websiteis the best place to get to know us better. - Source: Reddit / about 2 years ago
