What is Motivus | Distributed Computing in a Sharing Economy

Welcome to the future of distributed computing. In Motivus we set out to democratize the access to high performance computing based on a collaborative monetization system.

A World Run by Data


It’s not a surprising thing to say that the modern world is dominated by data. With 2.5 quintillion bytes generated per day in the world, organizations of all kinds are using data analysis to create products and services that better meet consumers' needs.

Data processing and analysis not only applies to product or service based companies, but it also is necessary in different scientific research projects. The creation of the COVID-19 vaccine, for example, relied heavily on data processing and AI to accelerate it’s creation.

As of now, processing big volumes of data takes place either in supercomputers or cloud computing services offered by companies like Amazon, Google and Microsoft. It's no surprise that these three giants currently hold the keys to accessing the data you need.

But what if everyone around the world could share the idle power of their own personal devices? And what if people could get paid for this?

Enter Motivus


Motivus is creating a collaborative high performance computing network, where clients can process big volumes of data while users get rewarded by sharing the processing power of their devices.

Our multilateral platform benefits users and clients alike, allowing users to have an additional stream of income while offering clients a safe and affordable environment to process big volumes of data.

Motivus runs in a sandboxed execution environment while also having HTTPS encryption. These methods allow us to offer safety and data privacy to our users and clients. To know more, please visit our article Importance of Cyber Security at Motivus.

Anyone that has a computing device with access to a web browser (laptop, desktop, phone, tablet) can become a user. Users then log in to the Motivus Floating Tool to start processing projects of their own choosing.

You could help scientists create 3D models of RNA, run cosmological simulations, or even mine cryptocurrencies. These are just some of the many projects that are currently being set up at Motivus.

Data scientists and programmers can also create their own algorithms and run them with the Motivus Framework. Motivus will then distribute tasks to all devices that are available. Eventually, programmers will be able to sell their algorithms through Motivus to other individuals or entities to use.

Last but not least, website owners can host the Motivus Floating Tool on their own sites to serve as an alternative to classic banner-like ads. By having users log in to the Floating Tool through their website to start processing, website owners will receive a commission on that transaction.

What is the current state of Motivus?


We have just launched our website and with it the beta version of our Floating Tool. To test our platform, we will be running a Benchmark Contest on January 21st. The objective of this benchmark is to try to have the largest number of users processing data for the longest amount of time. The Benchmark will run between the 21st of January and the 11th of February.

Our goal is to grow a community of users that benefit from being part of our platform, which is why we’ve chosen to set up our Benchmark as a contest. We will be giving out Amazon Gift Cards of $50, $75 and $100 USD to participants with the longest processing times and tasks. Please visit our Motivus Benchmark article to learn more about the details of the contest!
