About Akash Network (AKT)
Akash Network (AKT) open source cloud is a shift from computing resources being owned and operated by the three large Cloud companies (Amazon, Google, and Microsoft) to a decentralized network of Cloud providers running an open platform developed by the open source community creating competition in an open marketplace with more providers and lower costs. The Akash Platform is a deployment platform for hosting and managing containers where users can run any Cloud-Native application. The Akash Platform is built with a set of cloud management services including Kubernetes to orchestrate and manage containers.
Akash Network (AKT) Deploy your application in minutes without having to set up, configure, or manage servers. Package your application in a container and expose any TCP/UDP port you want. Define how much CPU, Memory, and Disk in a single file. Set the price for providers bid on, and letting you select the best price and provider. The Akash Marketplace is the mechanism by which users acquire resources on the Akash Platform. The Akash marketplace is an on-chain decentralized marketplace for leasing computing resources on the Akash Platform. Akash’s blockchain is a tendermint-based application based on the Cosmos SDK (cosmos-sdk). Akash uses the blockchain to store records of requests, bids, leases, and settlement payments using the Akash Token (AKT).
Akash Network (AKT) Akash Application contains everything needed to run the Akash Platform, the Akash Marketplace and the command-line interface and is distributed in the Akash open source GitHub repository. The cost of hosting your application using Akash is about one-third the cost of Amazon AWS, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and Microsoft Azure. You can check the prices live using the Akashlytics.com price comparison tool. If you’re new to Akash, start with the Getting Started guide and go from there. Akash’s community has written several more advanced guides for learning about Akash: a node operator guide, a validator guide, a cloud provider guide, and several deployment guides for running various apps on Akash.

Akash Network envisions a world where cloud computing is permissionless, sovereign, and open, where builders of the internet have greater freedom to expand the human experience. Akash Network is building this future. Known as the “Airbnb for Cloud Compute”, Akash Network provides a fast, efficient and low-cost application deployment solution. Developers leveraging Akash’s platform can access cloud computing at up to three times less than the cost of centralized cloud providers like Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure. Utilizing containerization and open-source technology, Akash Network leverages 85% of underutilized cloud capacity in 8.4 million global data centers, enabling anyone to buy and sell cloud computing.

What Makes Akash different from Decentralized VM Platforms?
Akash is a decentralized cloud platform that hosts containers where users can run any Cloud-Native application. There is no need to re-write the entire internet in a new proprietary language, and there is no vendor lock-in to prevent you from switching Cloud providers. The deployment is off-chain and performed over a private peer-to-peer network isolated from the blockchain. Asset transfer occurs off-chain to provide the security and performance required by a mission critical applications running on the Cloud.
A container is a standard unit of software that packages up code and all its dependencies so the application runs quickly and reliably from one computing environment to another. A container image is a lightweight, standalone, executable package of software that includes everything needed to run an application: code, runtime, system tools, system libraries and settings. Container images become containers at runtime. Available for both Linux and Windows-based applications, containerized software will always run the same, regardless of the infrastructure. Containers isolate software from its environment and ensure that it works uniformly despite differences for instance between development and staging.
The Akash Marketplace revolves around Deployments, which fully describe the resources that a tenant is requesting from the network. Deployments contain Groups, which is a grouping of resources that are meant to be leased together from a single provider.
Deploying applications onto Akash involves two types of users:
- The Tenant: the entity that deploys the application.
- The Provider: the entity that hosts the application.
It is important for the tenant to send their manifest to the correct provider, and for the provider to ensure only valid owners can access their deployments. This authentication is implemented with mTLS and involves each account creating a certificate prior to deploying a workload or starting a provider. Default certificate lifespan is 365 days from the moment of issuance. This can be customized to be valid up to a certain date, or not valid until a certain date.

AKT token holders can vote on network upgrades, and allocation of the Decentralized Cloud Foundation’s funds and resources.
AKT is used to incentivize providers to offer lower prices, and incentivizes stakers to participate in the network longer term by staking.
AKT provides a default mechanism to store and exchange value, and acts as a reserve currency in Cosmos’ multi-currency and multi-chain ecosystem.
Once the network achieves more significant gross merchandise value (GMV), rewards will comprise inflationary rewards and include a share of the total network spend (Take Income) users pay.
