The idea of nuco.cloud
The idea of nuco.cloud came up when the founder – Tobias Adler – developed a trading robot for stock trading which needed a lot of computing power.
After a long market research and price calculations it became clear that the main computing power suppliers were too expensive and required long term contracts.
Together with Matthias Klees they came across BOINC, the open-source solution that would enable their work to be more satisfactory and less expensive. They agreed that more people must feel the same way. The problem now was that BOINC was just for scientific projects and was not user friendly.
They came up with the idea of nuco.cloud – a decentralised supercomputer, accessible from any device connected to the internet which is also a commercial and user friendly evolution of BOINC.
Ever since that, the aim of the nuco.cloud has been to use idle processing potential of every PC, server and smartphone to solve issues that require considerable computing power.
Founded in 2018 nuco.cloud now consists of two independent platforms dedicated for both individual and professional users.
Nuco.cloud (coming in 2021) will be connecting idle computing power of computers, laptops and smartphones and selling it to the individual clients using a blockchain payment system. Nuco.compute should be ready in quarter 4 this year and will be connecting idle computing power of large data centers with security certifications and selling it to the professional clients using both ways of payment: traditional one in FIAT (EUR) and blockchain (NCDT). The customers will get a discount of 20% if they choose to pay in NCDT.
Both systems will work on the “pay as you go” principle which simply means no contracts and no subscriptions.
Built on everything learned from the experience, nuco.cloud is a complete new definition of distributed cloud computing that goes even further than any other cloud solution on the market to help its users to get back to what matters – saving time and money.
