Golem Network is a platform that allows anyone to gain access to censorship-resistant computing power. It enables users to provide and lease idle hardware on a peer-to-peer basis. Golem currently operates as a decentralized alternative to Amazon, Microsoft, and IBM’s centralized cloud computing solutions. The protocol’s settlement layer enables the creation of a shared and alternative economy in which users earn passive income by leasing their hardware. The network is powered by the Golem Network Token (GLM), which was previously known as GNT before a token swap in November 2020.
