What is Akash Network
Akash.network currency is a digital token the Akash, whose ledger is stored on a blockchain.
Akash providers bid to place workloads, driving costs down. There is no middleman on the Akash network, so no entity uses monopolistic power to extract highest possible margins.
Companies from over the world can monetize slack server capacity sitting in their owned or collocated datacenters, then pull capacity back from the network whenever they need it.
Deployment slots are allocated via an auction process that begins with a user defining the deployment criteria (resources, topology, price) in a declarative file posted to the Akash blockchain. Akash providers then programmatically bid on the deployment, with the low bid winning and creating a lease between tenant and provider, again written to the chain.
