Overview of Genesis Mainnet

As of the Genesis Mainnet Release, the RNDR Network will be migrating from the Ethereum Ropsten Testnet to the Ethereum Mainnet. As a result, all work on the network will be done using fully functional RNDR Tokens. To date, since Phase I in early 2018, users have been able to redeem RNDR Tokens for GPU Compute tasks on the OctaneRender Cloud (ORC) network for production GPU rendering. Additionally, on the Ethereum peer-to-peer Testnet, we have processed almost a half a million frames with over a hundred forty users testing decentralized rendering. With the Genesis Mainnet release, RNDR Tokens are now available for production decentralized GPU rendering

  • Node Regions that allow decentralized GPU nodes to be clustered efficiently to serve decentralized rendering demand. Regions also allow node tiering for Higher and Lower priority rendering work, enabling users to optimize their preferences for speed, security, performance, and cost.
  • Encryption to enable the secure asset distribution across a decentralized network, with encrypted uploading and downloading. When you upload an ORBX file, the scene file is encrypted and stays that way at rest.
