Golem explained

Golem is a global, open source, decentralized supercomputer that anyone can access. It is made up of the combined power of users’ machines, from PCs to entire data centers.

Golem is capable of computing a wide variety of tasks, from CGI rendering, through machine learning to scientific computing. Golem’s limitations are only defined by our developer community’s creativity.

Golem creates a decentralized sharing economy of computing power and supplies software developers with a flexible, reliable and cheap source of computing power.

Golem ecosystem

Golem as a marketplace to empower Users

Golem enables users and applications (requestors) to rent out cycles of other users’ (providers) machines. Any user ranging from a single PC owner to a large data center can share resources through Golem and get paid in GNT (Golem Network Tokens) by requestors.

Ethereum-based transaction system

Golem utilizes an Ethereum-based transaction system to settle payments between providers, requestors and software developers. All computations take place in sandbox environments and are fully isolated from the hosts’ systems.

Developers in the center of Golem’s ecosystem

Software developers are in the center of Golem’s ecosystem: Our Application Registry and Transaction Framework enable anyone to deploy, distribute and monetize applications in the Golem network.

Enter the Golem Ecosystem

The future Golem releases will bring major improvements to the protocol in terms of its flexibility and robustness. New Golem use-cases integrations are in progress in cooperation with several partners. This is crucial to grow our user base.

Clay Beta on Mainnet

Earn tokens by renting your unused computer power, render Blender animations, integrate WASM apps, test molecular simulations with gLAMBDA and transcode your video files

Find out more


•   First use-case live on mainnet.

•   Render complex Blender scenes or animations fast, at a reasonable price set by the users themselves.



•   Live on mainnet.

•   Create decentralized applications easily with a WebAssembly backend.

•   Integrate existing applications or services by moving the computationally expensive part to the Golem platform.

•   gWASM applications can operate on Golem and Golem Unlimited.

start with docs


•   Originally built to add support for distributed RASPA execution First molecular computations in Golem.

•   Run in a gVisor-secured Docker container and contains Python packages.

•   Golem’s first use-case in the area of scientific research - more to come

coming soon

Video transcoding

•   Upcoming use-case.

•   Use Golem and Golem Unlimited for f heavy files video-transcoding.

•   A dedicated web service with an intuitive interface for less tech-savvy users to create Golem tasks.

coming soon

Golem Unlimited – GU

•   Utilize trusted computing resources which are part time idle (eg. data center-like setups, for example render farms)

•   Create an internal trusted network of computers with a hub, acting as a Golem requestor

•   Other machines can join the Hub’s network as providers to calculate tasks

•   Connect the Hub and its network to Golem Network as one fat provider (coming soon)

•   Current use cases: Hoard Compiler Gromacs and Golem Unlimited MPI Computations (GU-MPI)

Graphene - a Library OS for Unmodified Applications

•   Applications programmed for one system often do not work on another.
Graphene bridges this gap by hosting the application-facing code from the operating system (OS) kernel into a userspace library.

•   Graphene uses a platform adaptation layer (PAL) that is easy to implement on a new host system.
