⭐ Good Practice Description

ThreeFold Grid is a peer-to-peer network of storage and compute capacity developed by ThreeFold Technologies (TFT). It creates a decentralised, privacy focused, and secure resource pool of participants that add their compute and storage capacities to a grid.

Success Factors

Business Success

ThreeFold Grid is growing at a double-digit rate, with country-level projects increasing. This is because ThreeFold Grid enables the establishment of peer-to-peer networks at different levels – at the community level, regional level, country level, and global level, depending on the defined scope. Another key area of growth is partner adoption.

Governance and Organizational Structure

TFT has created an independent peer-to-peer network in which every organisation can participate, has added its own resources to the grid, and is being compensated for it.
