Tangram is a decentralized platform that provides video encoding services using peer-to-peer technology.
Efficient video broadcasting is becoming crucial for a number of activities that utilize video on the internet: from advertising to news to sport and social media, more and more content video is produced, shared and broadcasted every day.
YouTube claims that over 400 hours of content are uploaded every single minute. Cisco states that annual global IP traffic will reach 3.3 ZB per year by 2021, and IP video traffic will be 82% of such number. Video traffic will grow fourfold from 2016 to 2021. It would take more than 5 million years to watch the amount of video that will cross global IP networks each month in 2021.
The broadcasting of huge video files is very expensive, as they use a lot of bandwith and cannot be handled efficiently. Therefore, to be transmitted, videos need to be encoded.
Tangram aims to develop a decentralized platform that will provide video encoding services using peer-to-peer technology: virtually any server, pc, smartphone or even TV and wash machine, has unutilized (or sub-utilized) computational power that can be used to perform encoding tasks.
Such technology will be using both permissioned (i.e. private) and public Blockchain (Ethereum) as an effective, innovative and secure tool to identify and authenticate users, to empower and synchronize the task to be performed, to track and manage encoding activities thanks to the distributed ledger technology. Finally, Blockchain will be used to record credits and reward the users
Single computers can only perform to their best ability but with distributed computing, you get the best from across the whole system.
A single server can be rocked by glitches, but with distributed computing, a single glitch cannot result to complete system failures.
The p2p network that process the tasks can accommodate an infinite number of nodes without need of new configurations or manual tasks.
The business model utilizes “third parties” unutilized CPUs and rewards them with a token, so that lower hardware investments are required.
