Perlin Network is building a scalable privacy-preserving general compute network

Project stage

Only a whitepaper

Detailed description

The Perlin Network is a distributed computing platform built on top of the novel DAG. The network commodifies underutilized computing resources into highly parallel batches of computing power, which can be utilized for tasks such as analyzing big data and training machine learning modules.

The platform has three major components:

  • Self-audited distributed ledger
  • Cryptographic proof of computational resources
  • Framework for highly parallel blind computing.

The Perlin ICO and PERL Token are raising funds for the launch of a scalable DAG-based protocol using Avalanche consensus. The Perlin ICO also includes the launch of a decentralized compute layer, called the Perlin Network, which will serve as a marketplace for the exchange of computing resources between providers and customers.


Having a network of nodes that can reason in a trustless manner and reach a consensus about a set of information efficiently in terms of time and energy is a trillion-dollar problem that plagues both decentralized and distributed systems.

Researchers, developers, startups and enterprises incur excessive costs to power up the cloud machines/instances they rent from centralized cloud computing providers.

Several solutions that have been conceived to address this space have to do with effciently utilizing and epidemically spreading less/more information viably across a network of nodes.


Perlin is creating a decentralized, trustless cloud computing marketplace which delivers massive computational throughput and power with the ability to attain high transaction volume and market activity, effectively reducing the cost of computing power.

Perlin is optimized to be a solution for developing dApps that require large amounts of computing resources and disk space, opening the door to a variety of potential use case scenarios.


High-throughput parallel compute
Perlin coordinates and provides on-demand access to aggregated batches of compute machines around the world to collectively execute the most computationally expensive tasks, and host the most computationally-exhaustive technical infrastructures.

Privacy-preserving computations
Perlin delivers a developer-friendly privacy-preserving application framework built with homomorphic cryptosystems, zk-SNARKs, and interactive verifiable computation protocols to leave advocates and institutes that work with highly sensitive data and processes with peace of mind.

Resource-lock proofs

Perlin facilitates the trustless exchange of computational resources across its market by introducing novel cryptographic resource-lock proofs representative of a miner's CPU time and RAM invested into a client.

Scalable economy

Perlin's unique interplay of economic incentives between miners, validators, and clients and price stability mechanisms allows for a truly decentralized, trustless, egalitarian computing market which scales in the presence of mass adoption.

Perlin Network frames a trustless market around an untapped computing power supply consisting of highly underutilized computing resources to make supercomputing economically viable and accessible globally.
