The world-wide demand for data processing is increasing year-on-year, with data processing applications requiring ever increasing performance from data processing devices and services. Industries, such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), video rendering, powering blockchain computations, scientific simulations and research, financial modeling and analysis, weather analysis, medical imaging and healthcare and autonomous vehicles are all increasing their demands to collect, store, analyze, manipulate and extract data, delivering real-time results.
There is a need to make sense of the vast amounts of data being generated through the increasing use of data-driven technologies and services. The higher the performance of a device combined with the greater the number of devices undertaking the task, the quicker the result or outcome is provided. As real-time systems demand immediate results, the performance of data processing becomes critical to the delivery of the service.
Centralized data centers have previously been supported by many countries, including Iceland and China, to provide data processing services. However, as demand for data processing grows, centralized data processing centers are having difficulty coping with the demand. Centralized operations consume significant amounts of energy both in terms of service delivery (data processing) and service support (e.g. air conditioning to cool the infrastructure). Energy distribution infrastructure is not supportive of increasing localized demand, impacting commercial and residential supply. In addition, centralized service centers are having difficulty with physical expansion, both in terms of available land and space and impact on energy distribution infrastructure.
With the global increase in energy prices combined with the problems associated with centralized data centers taking energy from the local distribution ecosystem and the need for growth to support the increasing demand for data processing power, organizations are looking for alternative approaches to delivering data processing services.
Spreading energy consumption with decentralized, cloud based data processing networks
Global, decentralized data processing is the way forward.
Creating a decentralized, global data processing network, interconnected through cloud technology is one approach to solving the centralized data processing problem.
Firstly, the cloud offers scalability and flexibility. Cloud-based data processing allows businesses to scale their processing power up or down as needed, without the need to invest in expensive hardware. This means businesses can pay only for the processing power they need, when they need it.
Secondly, the cloud offers cost-effectiveness. Cloud-based data processing eliminates the need for businesses to invest in expensive hardware and software, or pay for the maintenance and upkeep of on-premise data centers. This can result in significant cost savings for businesses.
Thirdly, the cloud offers accessibility and mobility. Cloud-based data processing can be accessed from anywhere, at any time, as long as there is an internet connection. This means businesses can access their data and processing power from any location, making it ideal for remote working and global operations.
Fourthly, the future of data processing lies in the cloud because of the nature of the technology.
GAIMIN has solved this problem! – GAIMIN.CLOUD
GAIMIN.CLOUD harnesses the underutilized processing power found in high performance PC-based Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) into one network, delivering supercomputer-level performance, facilitating the delivery of large scale data processing requirements whilst spreading the consumption of processing energy, globally.
GAIMIN identified gaming PC’s as the most appropriate device to target to create GAIMIN.CLOUD. A gaming PC typically includes a high performance Graphics Processing Unit (GPU).
From research, the GPU is typically underutilized within a gaming PC. The gaming PC is typically only used for around 20% of the day for gaming, but remains switched on when not being used. The gamer continually looks to improve their gaming experience and continually upgrades their PC resulting in even greater performance available from the devices.
GAIMIN’s approach creates a greener, more ecologically compliant approach to energy consumption for data processing services, spreading processing capability through different countries and regions, mitigating energy consumption bottlenecks, and resolves supply problems through the ability to re-route network processing.
GAIMIN calls this network GAIMIN.CLOUD
Through a free to download PC application, a user permits their device to participate in GAIMIN.CLOUD.
GAIMIN identifies each device available and builds a data processing network from available devices. GAIMIN submits data processing jobs to devices and the network according to task priority and profitability, returning the data processing output for the job back to the customer.
GAIMIN rewards users for allowing their devices to participate in GAIMIN.CLOUD in the form of GAIMIN’s own cryptocurrency and pays back upto 90% of the job fee received by GAIMIN, back to the user, pro-rated in relation to the contribution their device made in the delivery of the data processing job.
GAIMIN.CLOUD currently focuses on the delivery of video rendering jobs and is investigating the use of GAIMIN.CLOUD to support AI data processing requirements. When there is no video rendering or AI data processing job, GAIMIN uses GAIMIN.CLOUD for the fallback, always available service, to power blockchain computations.

With GAIMIN, gamers can make a real difference in the world by contributing to the data processing needs of businesses and organizations.
One of the most exciting aspects of GAIMIN.CLOUD is that it offers real social impact by giving back up to 90% of the revenue to gamers. This means that users of the platform can help create genuine social impact and improve the lives of potentially 1.5 billion gamers. Gamers can earn extra income and improve their financial situation while they play, without having to take on extra work or sacrificing their leisure time.
In addition to improving the lives of gamers, GAIMIN.CLOUD also helps to bridge the digital divide by providing access to powerful data processing capabilities to individuals and organizations that may not have been able to afford it before. This can help to promote innovation, economic growth, and social progress in communities around the world.
GAIMIN.CLOUD is not just a powerful data processing platform, it is also a powerful social and economic engine that can help to create a better future for everyone. By harnessing the power of the global gaming community, GAIMIN.CLOUD is helping to build a more equitable, sustainable, and inclusive world for all.
GAIMIN monetizes through GAIMIN.CLOUD with the provision of different data processing services. Currently focussing on video rendering and powering of blockchain computations, GAIMIN.CLOUD will soon be extending its service provision into other data processing services, including AI data processing and other big-data processing requirements.
Using AI to maximise rewards
GAIMIN’s AI driven approach develops sub-processing networks within GAIMIN.CLOUD, capable of delivering different data processing services.
The decision making AI engine identifies the devices currently available to GAIMIN and builds processing networks based on devices, performance and data processing job requirements. Some devices are more appropriate for specific data processing services and so, depending on job requirements, GAIMIN will build a sub network comprising appropriate processing devices and submit jobs accordingly.
The GAIMIN AI Engine identifies the most profitable jobs first and allocates devices where the most profit is available. There is always the backstop solution – powering blockchain computations. When there is no other job available, the AI Engine diverts available resources into the powering of blockchain computations ensuring GAIMIN.CLOUD is always delivering some form of monetization and reward generation.
GMRX – GAIMIN’s own cryptocurrency
GAIMIN pays its users in GMRX, GAIMIN’s own cryptocurrency.
When a user monetizes their device, GAIMIN receives payment for the delivery of services in a number of different ways – fiat and crypto for example. GAIMIN returns upto 90% of the rewards generated back to the user in the consolidated GMRX crypto currency.
A user stores their GMRX, which can be used for the purchase of accessories, merchandise, in-game assets and NFTs. As GMRX is soon to be listed on crypto exchanges, a user can convert their GMRX into other crypto assets or fiat currency.
As you would expect, GAIMIN wants its users to retain their GMRX and use it for purchases through GAIMIN. GAIMIN incentivises GMRX holders to retain their GMRX through additional benefits, bonuses and discounts, including NFTs, bespoke merchandise, discounted accessories.
GAIMIN will sell NFTs in its marketplace at a low cost to enable users to build their NFT-based gaming asset repository at a low cost.
As an example, a user with a mid-range GPU could expect to earn $1 per day when active in the GAIMIN network. GAIMIN intends to create in-game NFTs for $1 or less, enabling a gamer to build their own repository of in-game interoperable NFTs to support their gameplay. Being interoperable, the NFTs can be re-used across different games and genres and take a form and operational structure relevant to the game.
Medium and higher cost NFTs, which have enhanced utility and attributes, will be minted but require the user to remain participating in the GAIMIN network until they have earned sufficient rewards to acquire a more expensive asset.
No Gamer Left Behind
GAIMIN’s monetization approach is multi-functional and not based on one aspect.
GAIMIN has created a number of user-retention mechanisms. Traditional monetization options typically focus on one approach – for example, mining alone or rendering alone, where the value of user rewards are dependent on the performance contributed by the user. The greater the performance of a device, the greater the contribution, the greater the reward. This discriminates against users who do not have high performance devices!
GAIMIN’s multi-functional approach implements a variety of mechanisms to reward users for participating in the GAIMIN network. This includes rewards based on hashpower however to ensure no gamer is left behind, GAIMIN has introduced other approaches to reward a user – for example, time (hours) connected to the GAIMIN network – the longer a device remains active on the network, the more hours the user builds to allow them to claim different NFT assets and rewards. This approach is unique to GAIMIN and sets GAIMIN apart from the perceived competition whose focus and reward is purely based on hashpower.
GAIMIN’s philosophy of “no gamer left behind” is designed to allow as many gamers as possible to earn rewards and enhance their gaming experience and does not just reward those users who have highly performing devices.
