How Akash Network is Democratizing Access to Cloud GPUs | Greg Osuri

This week Dan and Sam are interviewing Akash Network CEO and Founder Greg Osuri to dive into how Akash is building an open, decentralized marketplace for cloud compute resources to serve web3 developers. They discuss the high utilization and demand on Akash, innovations like training AI models on the blockchain, and why the future of cloud computing infrastructure needs to be permissionless and decentralized. Greg provides an inside look at the mission behind Akash, the economics of their cloud marketplace, how it compares to centralized providers, and his vision for the protocol going forward. Thanks for watching!
