Welcome to the Distributed Computer.
Passwords must be at least 8 characters long. We recommend choosing a strong password which is easy to remember but hard to guess, or using a password manager.
Distributed Compute Protocol (DCP) gives developers access to a stateless compute network. Designed to seamlessly integrate with web services, DCP enables quick and easy formation of grid computers for distributing tasks.
The public network acts as a compute utility that users can submit tasks to. Miners can connect to the public network and earn credits for completing tasks. In addition, private networks are available to be quickly setup and torn down for those who want to work locally.
Distributed Compute Protocol is an open-source project to extend the Internet Protocol Suite.
DCP requires a cryptographic wallet to connect to the network. These wallets are similar to SSH keys, and are locked behind passwords. DCP will ask you to generate or load a key if you do not have one available. The wallet will store your credits earned from completing tasks and allow you to deploy tasks to the network.
These keys need to be kept safe; DCP provides a user server which can keep password protected keystores. We do not retain passwords and have no access to stored keys. Keys can also be stored locally or in browser extensions depending on user preference.
The miner will connect to the public scheduler and complete tasks. As tasks are completed credits will be transferred from the task owner to the miner.
The Beta will restrict mining to approved accounts so that we can properly test and scale the network. We are working to connect all available compute.
