RNDR is a blockchain peer-to-peer GPU compute network that connects creators in need of additional computation power for rendering their scenes, to providers that receive RNDR tokens for their GPU power.
It allows complex GPU-based render jobs to be distributed and processed on a peer-to-peer (P2P) network, making the transactional process of rendering and streaming 3D environments, models, and objects simpler for end users. The blockchain functions as a public database for the RNDR network, providing an improved means of tracking digital assets and objects - in which content is time-stamped and stored with a unique ID. With RNDR, users can create ultra-high resolution media, crowd source projects and manage complex 3D digital rights, providing a vibrant marketplace to produce and share digital works, assets, and applications that anyone can access and leverage.
The Internet was built on the promise of distributed computing and the open exchange of ideas and data. As we move from hypertext and hypermedia to a fully immersive metaverse built on interactive 3D content, the challenges and opportunities are exponentially greater. In order to support the emerging media of tomorrow, it is crucial to be able to bridge the gap between the promise of these breakthroughs and the feasibility of widespread access to them. Until now, no system scales rendering speed across many dimensions of work in order to allow content creators to tap into the vast pool of graphics cards from an online network.
