What is a Workerdrop?

iExec is a marketplace for cloud computing resources. It’s the first time that computing power can be traded like a commodity. Having recently deployed all its features on the Ethereum mainnet, the goal of the iExec Workerdrop is therefore to educate and encourage any computer owner to open a new revenue stream by providing their computing power as worker’’

  • During the second Workerdrop, the execution will be replicated on three workers to increase the level of security. No staking will be needed. This second Workerdrop will stand for 24h.
  • During the third Workerdrop, the execution will also be replicated on three workers and, as it will run with PoCo, staking will be required. This Workerdrop features all the processes implied by a fully-operational worker pool on iExec. This third Workerdrop will also stand for 24h.
