Perlin is a decentralized marketplace that makes use of underutilized computational power in everyday smart-devices to make supercomputing accessible.

Perlin: About the Platform

Perlin is a blockchain AI-focused startup that is working with redundant power in common smart devices. In essence, it is the idea of cryptojacking - making use of the extra power that your smartphone can provide, only with Perlin it is not done in an illicit fashion:

“Our positioning is to become Airbnb for cloud computing,” said one of Perlin’s co-founders Kenta Iwasaki in an interview for the Chinese version of MIT Technology Review.

The very first use of the cloud computing platform that is developed by Perlin is going to be a socially economic initiative - a January 2019 hackaton called “AI 4 All” organized by leading tech organizations of India and Indonesia with the aim to use cutting-edge technology for helping poor communities in both organizing countries and globally.

Wavelet Ledger

The distributed ledger that Perlin uses is called Wavelet.

  • Wavelet promises far higher throughput than common public blockchains, benchmarking results are not yet ready though.
  • It runs on a proof-of-stake algo, but the computational layer takes from DAG (directed acyclic graph, made famous by IOTA).
  • It is Sybil-resistant with a privacy layer and made for dApp development.

The transaction throughput could be up to whopping 1300 tx per second. That is the top range promised in the whitepaper of the consensus protocol that Perlin uses. Copy of the whitepaper is linked from the Documents section; the protocol is called Avalanche and is relatively very new with last reviews of the paper from May 2018.

Wavelet has been running on testnet since October 2018 and is currently undergoing benchmarking before the computational layer goes live in early 2019.

Perlin: Token Promotion & Results

There is a host of big names among the advisors, investors and token holders of Perlin.

Token holders include:

  • Bitmain
  • OK Blockchain Capital
  • FBG, Blocktower, Arrington and others

Perlin’s advisors include:

  • Taiyang Zhang of Republic Protocol
  • Howard Wu of Dekrypt Capital
  • Vincent Zhou of FBG Capital
  • Rob Eldridge, Ex-CFO of Asia and Emerging Markets at Amazon

Perlin was founded by team of two entrepreneurs - Dorjee Sun (Loki, Devery, Airbloc, Santiment) and Mirza Uddin - and two engineers, Kenta Iwasaki (Naver, Velcron) and Trung Nguyen.

The Business Intelligence for Perlin

Perlin has offices in Singapore, New York, Sydney and Hong Kong. Perlin’s headquarters is located at the address Raffles Pl, Central Business District, 04, Singapore.

Investing in Perlin

Perlin welcomes registered participants for the AI 4 All Hackaton which was announced at the AI conference organized by NITI Aayog and Observer Research Foundation (ORF) in Mumbai on 16th November 2018.

All students, startups and existing companies are welcome to submit their idea on AI applications that would have significant social and economic impact in India and Indonesia.

The best Idea Submissions will share in a total prize pool worth USD $12,500 in cash and non-cash rewards.

The AI 4 All Hackaton is organized by NITI Aayog, the Indian innovation think tank, and PT Telkom, Indonesia’s largest telco with 180M users.

Perlin is taking on an important role by providing access to its decentralized cloud platform, which will serve to support the AI work done during the event.

Your ideas for AI 4 All Hackaton can be submitted through perlin.net/hackathon before the deadline on 15th January 2019.
