Twentysix Cloud is an all-in-one, decentralized cloud marketplace, powered by aleph.im’s Decentralized Physical Infrastructure Network (DePIN). This launch marks a significant step in bridging decentralized cloud solutions with the growing demand for computing resources.

Paris, France — Friday January 26, 2024 — Aleph.im announces the launch of its innovative hub. Twentysix Cloud is a decentralized cloud marketplace offering a full range of blockchain-based storage, compute engine, indexing, and AI solutions for businesses and applications. By leveraging the aleph.im network, Twentysix Cloud ensures a secure, resilient, and transparent user experience. It sets a new standard for modern cloud infrastructures, utilizing tens of independent nodes worldwide.

The decentralized design of Twentysix Cloud meets the evolving needs of businesses and developers. It provides a versatile environment for a wide range of applications, empowering users through a robust architecture that seamlessly connects on-chain and off-chain data, eliminating centralized points of failure.

Twentysix Cloud now operates on a Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG) model, offering users the flexibility to pay only for the resources they use. This approach leads to lower costs due to the distributed nature of resources. Payments can be made in ALEPH, the native token of the network, or in stablecoins. This system, which charges by the millisecond, leverages Avalanche C-chain and Superfluid for optimal payment solutions.

“We’d like to welcome Twentsix Cloud powered by Aleph.im into the Avalanche ecosystem. The team’s Pay-As-You-Go model is an example of what can be created by harnessing the speed, power, and flexibility of Avalanche to build unique products for optimal payment solutions.”
Nadim Chamoun, Sr. BD Associate at Ava Labs

Twentysix Cloud is enhancing its integration with EVM blockchains like Avalanche to facilitate global streaming payments. This enhancement enables a seamless Pay-As-You-Go payment system that operates effortlessly across node operators, who contribute to maintaining and securing the network independently.

Jonathan Schemoul, co-founder and CEO of aleph.im, shared, “Twentysix Cloud offers a wide range of products for companies who wish to use an alternative solution to traditional cloud services. Until today, our users needed to hold or stake tokens to use our solutions. With the introduction of our Pay-As-You-Go model, we’re excited to onboard more businesses and developers, providing easy access to a full Web3 cloud platform. Our product will incorporate DeFi components to facilitate stablecoin transactions and include fiat gateways to enhance ease of use.”

Jonathan added, “Our mission is to contribute to the open-cloud industry as a whole and drive innovation across the space, providing new ways to build, deploy, and scale more effective models for AI. By opening this technology, we are offering decentralized AI’s virtual agents and conversational AI products to all who wish to use it, in a confidential way.”

In addition to its advanced capabilities, Twentysix and aleph.im are GDPR compliant. This ensures that stakers’ personal data remains secure, and they retain ownership of their uploaded documents and metadata. These are stored on Twentysix Cloud’s decentralized storage across 80+ core channel nodes, and 250+ compute resource nodes.

For all Compute Resource Node owners you will need to update it in order to enable Pay-As-You-Go:

  • Have IPv6 Egress configured and working
  • Add a STREAM REWARD ADDRESS on both your node account page and the settings file.

All technical informations regarding the Pay-As-You-Go feature are available on our official GitHub.
