How many LEOS tokens do I need to participate in the Leonardo Network?
LEOS tokens will be staked by miners in order to provide computer power to the network. The exact number of LEOs tokens miners need to hold depends on the number of GPUs and their models (the higher the GPUs rendering performance, the higher the stake). We will release staking requirements for all popular GPU models soon.
How many GPUs do I need to participate in the Leonardo Network?
We currently have a minimum threshold of 50 GPUs for mining facilities to join. This quanta is necessary to avoid latency and provide great user experience and a fast rendering time. But we have no specific requirements for individual miners who have their equipment installed in a large mining facility that connected to the Leonardo Network, e.g. GigaWatt.
How will LEOS tokens will be used?
Miners will need to hold LEOS tokens to provide rendering services. If the miner decides to stop rendering, they can sell LEOS tokens back. So LEOS tokens need to be staked to gain access to the network. This stake also serve as the security deposit. If the miner does not provide a reliable service in terms of promised time/processing power, etc, they can be challenged and the deposit in LEOS tokens will be used to compensate the client for unsatisfactory service. The exact stake size in LEOS tokens will be announced shortly for popular GPU models based on their rendering effectiveness benchmark (it correlates with Mh/s but there may be differences). The more rendering power you have, the more tokens you need to stake. E.g. the stake for each 1080 Ti is higher than for 1060, etc.
What differentiates Leonardo Render from a company like RenderToken?
1) We only work with certified infrastructure to ensure 100% availability. Render Token is a distributed super computer that uses all GPUs regardless of capacity. We believe there are serious technical shortcomings that make this approach infeasible if not impossible. 2) We have a working product 3) With us you pay in fiat which keeps the price fixed and stable 4) We have just started and already 3 major mining sites onboard 5) We have a working, proprietary software that allows you to render on your computer
What is the difference between Leonardo Render and other graphic rendering projects?
Render Farm: you upload your project, the render farm runs the rendering and sends you back the final product. Cloud Render: you rent a portion of server (Google, Amazon, etc.) and you render on their powerful hardware. Both of these alternatives are not ideal for rendering clients. In the case of 1) you are required to share your confidential intellectual property; have to queue and wait for your turn; and you don’t see the final product until the end, after you have already paid. In the case of 2) you pay even when you are not rendering, you are forced to work remotely, and you have to buy-install all the software licenses because you are working on a totally new platform. In the alternate case of Leonardo Render: you work on your computer, you pay for what you use, don’t need to upload anything, and don’t need to purchase new software licenses.
If I hold LEOS tokens will I be repaid by those who use the Leonardo System?
The main purpose of the LEOS token is that it gives access to the miners to provide rendering services on the Leonardo network. It also serves as a security deposit that guarantees the quality of rendering services provided by the miners. Just holding the token without the GPU equipment used for rendering does not provide repayments from Leonardo system users.
Is the Leonardo Render software compatible with all GPU’s?
At the moment our software is compatible with Nvidia GPUs only as we use a library called CUDA driver developed by Nvidia. We are planning to implement OpenCL framework support that will enable using AMD cards.
Is the Leonardo Render software compatible with ASICs?
No, ASICs can not provide rendering services.
