Two significant trends present a compelling business opportunity.

Growing AI Demand

A Big Economic Impact

Artificial Intelligence is forecast to add $14 trillion USD to the global economy by 2035. (source: Accenture)

Challenges to Adoption

A lack of technological capabilities has hampered adoption of AI solutions and barriers to entry remain high.

Winners and Losers

Businesses that embrace the power of AI will have a significant advantage over competitors in the future economy.

The Invisible Supercomputer

A Network of Billions

The number of internet connected personal computers, smartphones and tablets numbers in the billions.

The Trend is Up

Global smartphone adoption continues to grow while hardware and broadband advances continue apace.

Untapped Power

Collectively, these devices constitute an enormous, distributed resource of untapped computing power.

The Hadron Marketplace

Hadron connects the demand for AI computations with an abundant supply of processing power in a centralized, virtual marketplace. Customers put out bids for computing tasks and miners can accept work in exchange for Hadron coins.

How it Works

Image Description Step 1

Hadron's customers have AI computations that need to be processed

Image Description Step 2

You have idle devices with untapped processing power ready to work.

Image Description Step 3

Your devices start processing tasks for Hadron customers. We call this mining.

Image Description Step 4

As you complete tasks, the customer compensates you with Hadron coins.

Who Can Mine?

Unlike traditional mining which requires highly specialized hardware and uses a winner-takes-all approach, mining with Hadron is accessible to a much wider population. If you have a compatible smartphone you can start mining in under a minute.

Real World Applications

These are just the tip of the iceberg based on Hadron’s current technology. In the future, Hadron looks to power even more applications with its AI.

Charitable Computing

Charitable Research

A core value for the Hadron team is leveraging Artificial Intelligence for the benefit of society.

Users will always be paid for their computational efforts, but they will also have the additional satisfaction of knowing that a portion of all Hadron company profits will go towards funding AI computations for charitable causes including medical research for cancer and age-related diseases at institutions like Stanford University's School of Medicine.

Users can also donate coins directly to charitable causes within the Hadron dashboard.
