We live in an era of visual digital content. Our visual experiences are the product of human hard work and computational power.
We also live in an era where ‘Speed’, ‘Deadline’, and ’Delivery’ are the key-words that differentiate between success and failure. I can’t believe that in 2018 CG Creators have to wait twenty-four hours to see their rendering completed, while Animators in some cases have to wait nearly a month for a single second of animation. There is a deep necessity here, and where is necessity, great ideas come to life. Welcome to Leonardo Render, the Blockchain Render Farm. Marco Iodice CEO & Co-Founder.

Leonardo Render is a decentralized graphical rendering platform. We facilitate the rendering tasks by speeding up the process using massive computing capabilities.
The Leonardo Render software allows you to process your renderings offering a seamless experience and affordable prices.
Based on Blockchain technology, the Leonardo solution is extremely secure and ease to use. The project is already in the first stage of deployment, with a vertically integrated partnership with the 23,000 GPU facility of Giga-Watt - the largest crypto mining site in the United States.

Rendering Made Easy
Creators of computer generated imagery (CGI) require rendering. Rendering is the last stage of CGI production; it is the process that transforms a wireframe into a photorealistic image. This process requires computing power, and computing power is incredibly expensive. The rendering process also requires an extraordinary amount of time, leaving content creators hard-pressed to meet strict deadlines. Leonardo Render will greatly enhance the speed of the rendering process in a simple and affordable manner.
Intellectual Property Protection
Rendering transforms line-drawings into photorealistic images. But this process takes times even on powerful workstations.
For today's speed and fast-moving industry this timing is not acceptable. From architectural studios to animation firms time is money and computing power is incredibly expensive. From IP protection to seamless workflow, Leonardo is built around the Users's needs.
A Problem Worth Solving
Rendering is the last stage in the production of Computer Generated Images. Even for extremely advanced computers, the process of completing a render is an intense, demanding task.
The key tool used in completing a successful render is a computer’s GPU (Graphical Processing Unit). Using a single, powerful GPU, it might take hours - or even days - to produce a photorealistic render. Through its decentralized network of large-scale GPU providers, Leonardo aims to make this process faster, simpler, and more affordable.

Using Leonardo’s application, artists, designers, manufactures and studios are now able to complete their renderings with unparalleled speed.
The system offers both unlimited computing power, intellectual property protection, all while being cost effective.
Currently, the users can access 23,000 GPUs.
Leonardo Render relies on a growing network of large GPU infrastructures.

Benefits for GPU Miners
Leonardo will take advantage the high performance computing capabilities of the crypto-mining infrastructures.
GPU mining is facing a decrease in profitability. Leonardo Render offers an alternative solution for GPU miners.
Processing renderings gives the miners the opportunity to increase the profitability while relying the stability of the service priced in Fiat.
Cloud Rendering Market
Most of the users are medium to small players. The reason is cost. Cloud Rendering is cheaper than building a render farm, so medium and small players rely on cloud services. Big studios are still rendering most off their content in-house, but the increasingly high complexity of Computer Generated Images will drive even the big players to rely on third party solutions.
LEOS is an ERC-20 token on the Ethereum blockchain. Miners in the Leonardo network need to stake a certain amount of LEOS tokens to provide rendering services.
The stake size in LEOS tokens will be dynamically adjusted to optimize miner and customer incentives. Staked tokens also serve as a security deposit to ensure a high quality finished product.
The Leonardo Render software is a fully functional application. Further improvements and development will be done till 2018 Q4. The release of the final product is planned on 2019 Q1 and a full range of available application support (VRay for Maya and 3DS Max) and other major GPU- supported rendering engines. In 2019 Q4 We will kick off Leonardo Lab, the creative arm of Leonardo Render.
A network of smart creatives all connected in the Leonardo Render network.
