SPARC is the first North American globally-distributed IaaS
providing consumers with the most costeffective, flexible, and
easily accessible cloud-based high-performance computing. To
achieve this, we are
1) Initially leveraging existing demand and infrastructure. The
Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) is a
computing platform comprised of 1,128,897 compute nodes. At 17.1
petaFLOPS, it is the third most powerful supercomputer on Earth and
supports computing projects in astrophysics, mathematics, and
biology, for example. The alpha version of our network connects to
the BOINC network and rewards participant nodes with Science Power
and Research Coins (SPARC) for computational work performed.
Researchers and developers requiring computing power purchase SPARC
tokens from an exchange and attach them to their projects. These
tokens are distributed to the participant nodes in proportion to
work performed. SPARC tokens can then be exchanged directly for
computing power from the network or traded for conventional
currency on an exchange.
2) Recapturing wasted computing power. We have identified
inefficiencies in existing blockchain currencies. For example, in
the competition-based process of hashing a digital transaction on
the Bitcoin network, approximately 5,000 peta hashes per second are
discarded. This amount of wasted compute power is equivalent to
approximately 64,000x the combined power of the Top 500
Supercomputers. Instead of hashing to determine proof-of-work,
SPARC is compensating participant nodes for actual work performed.
We are effectively recapturing wasted computing resources and
making them available to science and industry.
3) Varying hardware allocation instead of varying pricing.
Whereas Amazon EC2, Google Cloud Compute and other services vary
the price as a function of system loads, our network varies the
hardware dedicated to your service via an auction process. We allow
you to set your price point and let the network compete for
available jobs. This ensures 100% network usage, and potentially
high rates of power at low cost without added setup for your
4) Expanding infrastructure by connecting new compute assets to
our global cloud. Our platform is designed to operate across all
intelligent devices; smart phones, tablets, laptops and computers
connected to the SPARC network generate revenue for their owners by
performing computations for user projects. Computer power
consumers can also participate as suppliers earning SPARC tokens
that can be used to fund their own usage, or be traded for
conventional currency on an exchange. This is an example of demand
5) SPARC foresees that imminently arriving self-driving
automated vehicles, each containing Massively Parallel Processing
(MPP) units, when not in operation, will network together forming
one of the most powerful distributed supercomputers on Earth. The
Internet of Things allows for any device to participate in our
distributed computing network, earning SPARC for device owners and
providing compute power for users.
6) Due to its globally-distributed architecture, SPARC incurs
minimal costs relating to infrastructure, operations, and
maintenance. This enables us to provide the most cost-effective and
the most powerful computing services in the world.
