Akash Network is the decentralized and open-source cloud.

Akash Network envisions a world where cloud computing is permissionless, sovereign, and open, where builders of the internet have greater freedom to expand the human experience.
Today’s cloud infrastructure providers have a real oligopoly, which allows them to charge non-commodity prices for commodity compute, inhibits real competition, and crowds out open-source projects. We think that’s wrong. Wrong for companies and individuals that use cloud compute; wrong for their customers to whom costs are ultimately passed; and wrong for society as a whole because one of its basic building blocks is controlled by three huge companies.
- Distribute then decentralize
While the current cryptocurrency landscape is undeniably fascinating, the real power of blockchain lies in its ability to create a cryptographically-enforced, distributed, and open source of truth.
We are indeed living in interesting times. Technology-driven decentralization will affect the social and political domains in unpredictable ways. Token sale-driven funding models will affect which types of projects become viable and how they grow, again in unpredictable ways. And from a purely technological perspective, blockchain is new and will evolve rapidly and unpredictably, with new capabilities forming a feedback loop with social, political, commercial, and of course regulatory domains.
