Abstract:
Advances in blockchain technologies like the introduction of smart contracts and providing alternative solutions to payment systems have given rise to the idea of using blockchain and smart contracts as a backbone for distributed supercomputing. Just like IPFS is used for distributed storage over the Internet, the concept of distributing computing safely came into existence. Distributed supercomputing is not new but using blockchain technology as a way of registering and rewarding the participating computers and users is novel. Here, we analyse four of the many projects, namely Gridcoin, Golem, SONM and iExec and point out their strengths and failings.

THE VISION
THE MISSION
ABOUT I-STEM
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
