Building Golem is an incredibly rewarding experience, we learn new things every day, but at the same time, constructing something that has never been done before is unpredictable and tricky.
We are glad to introduce our latest major release, Brass Golem Beta 0.17.0. Below you will find the details about this.
After the introduction made a few weeks ago, it’s now time to deep dive into our Blog post series. As mentioned, this series will feature some insights into the computational perspective of the Golem platform; alongside the requirements, imposed constraints and emerging challenges.
A few weeks ago, Joanna Rutkowska and her team at Invisible Things Lab (ITL) published a guest post (including a demo) of their work on Graphene-ng, their proposed solution to solve the issues within enclave computations, most specifically Intel-SGX.
In this instance, we would like to introduce a hotfix-like update for our users. Having detected that payments were incoming in a reliable manner, but transactions were not marked as confirmed in our UI, we decided to fix this pain point to improve the Golem experience and reduce our users’ ...
The new patch release of Brass Golem Beta 0.16.1 is available. This version contains some minor bugfixes, optimizations and a payment system refactor.
Well, nowadays we might not have any real-life moths stuck in our computers (or software, to be more precise) but software bugs need to be zapped as well. We hope you can join us in doing so.
A few months ago, during my keynote at Black Hat Europe, I was discussing how we should be limiting the amount of trust when building computer systems. Recently, a new technology from Intel has been gaining popularity among both developers and researchers, a technology which promises a big step ...
Important! This version introduces changes to the Golem protocol and uses different cryptographic methods for signing and serializing messages so it’s not compatible with the previous Golem versions. Nodes running 0.16.0 would be able to only compute tasks from nodes that are running this ...
Golem completed its mainnet launch on April 10, 2018.. Our users, many of whom have been with us from the very beginning, are now using our product, and we need to provide the best support possible because we owe it to them. Our team has changed since the early days of Ethereum development, and our ...
At Golem we take our promo tours seriously. And especially after launching mainnet, we are proud of what we’ve achieved so far, and we want to show it to the world.
In preparation for our CTO Piotr “Viggith” Janiuk’s presentation at EDCON: “Arbitrary computations with SGX in Golem. Architectural considerations, security risks, and efficiency tradeoffs”, we are releasing the initial slides on the Golem Architecture including SGX. Viggith has been tailoring his ...
Now that main net has launched and we all got some well-earned rest, it is time to tell our community about our first experiences in Asia, and what’s coming next.
This release adds as a feature, the possibility to restart a single subtask after the whole task hits deadline.
We’ve come a long way. From being one of the first crowdfunded projects, way past the challenges we had to face while navigating the uncharted territory that is building Golem, the time has come to take the big step: mainnet launch is here.
We are still processing everything that’s happening around our mainnet launch — so we really cannot explain how we feel. We are continually pinching ourselves to figure out if we’re dreaming or this outstanding response is real.
In order to launch Golem in the most correct, responsible and secure manner possible, the team needed to complete a critical step — the audit of the smart contracts.
The insightful Supercomputing Frontiers conference has a European edition. This year, the conference took place from March 12th to 16th, in the city where Golem was born, and where a large part of our tech team is based: Warsaw.
We are very pleased to announce the new release of Golem 0.14.0. This release adds password management for unlocking Golem accounts and several other features that will be needed for the upcoming switch to mainnet. Also worth mentioning, are the updates in the GUI.
TL;DR: In preparation for the Brass Beta mainnet launch, this is an update on our plans in regard to community engagement, and where you will be able to find us in the upcoming months.
We are happy to announce the new release of Golem 0.13.0. This releases supports new version of Golem payment contracts and contains several protocol improvements. And general bugfixing.
With our mainnet release on the horizon, we have taken special care to respond to the suggestions of our community members. Inspired by user suggestions during our recent AMA, we decided to reorganize our Kanban layout to provide more clarity for our users and transparency into our progress. Below ...
Today, The Golem project is happy to announce the new release of Golem 0.12.0. This release focuses on local verification of tasks, protocol improvements (including anti-sybil based on key difficulty), UX/GUI refinement and general bug-fixing.
Like, not in the literal, skynet’ish, space-oddysey’ish, matrix’ish way. At least for now.
We’ve come a long way since we defined the project in words and not commits, pull requests and testnet releases. A year and a half in Blockchain equals a decade in the real world. We’ve gone through many changes, challenges, and every day we get closer to our mainnet release (though we’re still not ...
We’ve been developing Golem for a few years now, and as Ethereum is one of the core infrastructure components for us, we had the opportunity to take a close look at its evolution from both the end-user point of view and most importantly, from a Dapps developer perspective. As Ethereum and related ...
The media outlet Salon sparked some controversy by publicly giving readers the choice to lease computing power to mine a particular cryptocurrency, trading it for the right to read their articles free of charge.
We have just initiated the re-airdrop of OMG tokens transferred to Golem’s multisig.
We are delighted to announce the next major Golem release that consists of changes in the protocol, the core and the GUI. The main improvements are: an uPnP support (which means no need for a port forwarding anymore if supported by a router), GNTW migration (testnet will now work with a contract ...
TL DR: We are working to address the problem of verification on Golem network. We will achieve it by checking small parts of computed tasks for accuracy. We will be publishing more on our research results over time.
Over the past years, we’ve spent a lot of time researching topics relevant to Golem development. That effort was documented on wiki in our github repository, but we started it as a collection of private notes in May 2016, when the project was not open source yet. As initially it was not done for ...
We are pleased to announce the next major release which contains a few long-awaited features and protocol optimizations.
We are pleased to announce new major release which means you can observe some changes to protocol. It also contains bugfixing, changes in dev tools and other improvements which are listed under the photo. As you can see on our Kanban we completed the File transport issue. Please expect more ...
Golem is pleased to announce the hiring of Chris Waclawek who will be responsible for Business, Strategy and Partnerships.
As many of you who follow our official GitHub repository may have already noticed we are ready to announce yet another step towards Brass. As in previous - so called - “minor releases” it means that the newest version is backwardly compatible with Brass Golem Alpha 0.9.0 and you should not expect ...
Friend and Golem are pleased to announce a formal partnership to ensure the advance of decentralized computing, peer-to-peer networking, and blockchain technologies as a whole.
Due to the issue in the latest Parity multisig code, all Paritymultisigs deployed after 20th of July this year are frozen. It is unclear at the moment if the funds are recoverable, but it seems likelythat no action on the smart contract side can be taken to unfreeze those wallets.
Ockham’s Razor proves to be a very useful problem-solving principle not only in philosophy but also in everyday life. From the developer’s perspective, you could apply it like this — simpler theories are preferable to more complex ones because they are more testable.
Anniversaries serve a social function. They allow us to pause, take stock and reflect on all that has come before us. To celebrate, or commiserate and to understand how our lives have changed.
