What is it?

Symbioses delivers the benefits of forging spare computing capacity of millions of devices around the world.

Symbioses does not require technical knowledge for its usage thus drastically expanding the potential user base.

Symbioses instantly monetizes the idle computing resources of the devices you own and expands their profitability potential.

Symbioses will seamlessly integrate the best aspects of traditional cloud services and non-interoperable decentralized networks. The synergy between these technologies will allow complementary benefits in ways their creators never thought possible.

The problem

Demand for computing power and storage capacity will increase exponentially in the coming years. Growth restrictions of Blockchains need to be resolved to allow decentralized computing to be a serious contender to centralized cloud based solutions.

Non-interoperable Technologies

Current technologies are not interoperable between one another. Symbioses can connect to these external systems.


The high prices of the centralized cloud providers make computing services unreachable for many.


Ethereum-based scheduling protocols suffer from low number of transactions, potentially deteriorating the scalability of the network.

the solution

Symbioses combines available computing resources into accessible software solutions available in a pay-as-you-go manner.

Fully compatible with existing cloud solutions and advanced distributed computing technologies, Symbioses empowers connected devices to forge their computing resources into turn-key solutions, determining their price, negotiating terms, executing agreements and gathering the rewards.

Consumers Dashboard

SYMIO Protocol

Our off-chain protocol eliminates scalability barriers in a fully automated process with zero user intervention.

Minimal latency

Computation and data closer together, maximum potential with minimum latency.

for everybody

Symbioses realizes these processes through a simple APP for all devices with a processor. You do not have to be an expert or a technician to use it.



The verification mechanism that is critical to several crypto currencies like bitcoin involves a computationally intensive process known as block mining.
Symbioses uses this well-known instrument to harden a robust network of computing resources, and a base line for Producers to monetize their shared devices.


Giving instant access to a vast pool of computing resources, Symbioses can render images and videos at a competitive price compared with traditional render farms. Symbioses provides turn-key solutions for the most popular render engines available in the market.


The decentralized network Symbioses represents the next generation of accurate and verifiable scientific simulations, giving access to the computing power required to drive the research behind climate change, new materials, studying of deceases and similar.


The computing resources provided by the Symbioses network offer turn-key solutions to host up and scale up deep-neural-network training software.
Being cost efficient means accessing more computing power at Symbioses than on the current cloud providers at lower price. Moreover, Symbioses consistently supports existing machine-learning software like TensorFlow, Apache Spark, Caffe, including access to GPUs.




Instantly monetize your computing devices seamlessly and automatically.


Generate revenue from sharing your spare capacity on the Symbioses Network.

Producers within the Symbioses Ecosystem are rewarded for the resources they provide to the network. The Client Application, a lightweight interface with the rest of the Symbioses Ecosystem, turns a device into a Producer of computing resources thus starting earning right after installing it.

It can easily be deployed using a graphical user interface, the design of which follows modern standards of desktop OS, or in headless mode taylored for server-like appliances.

The Client Application takes care of:

  • communications between the Producer's device and the rest of the Symbioses Ecosystem,
  • deployment of Consumer's applications before their execution,
  • logging information to support complete transparency,
  • updating the application binaries so thatthey are always up-to-date,
  • automatically scheduling the device resources based on its usage and electricity power source,
  • optimize the usage efficiency by mining during down-cycles.


Decentralized networks can save up to 90% compared to traditional cloud services.

By minimizing maintenance and overhead costs, decentralized networks can drastically reduce the prices offered to deliver the requested computing resources.

Generate revenue to offset your current cloud service expense by sharing the spare capacity on the Symbioses Network.

The Client Application can easily be deployed using a graphical user interface, the design of which follows modern standards of desktop OS, or in headless mode tailored for cloud server instances.

Auctions and adaptive pricing: profit from large amounts of available computing resources by bidding your offer in an open market. Tailor bids to match your time requirement and budget.

Symbioses incorporates a software-agent mechanism that automates the double-auction method for trading computing resources. The SYMIO protocol calculates the initial suggested price before deploying an application. Then, Consumers may alter their offer deciding how much a certain execution is worth, given a particular use case and set of requirements.

This bidding mechanism has the ability of shaping the pricing of the computing resources in an open market, since the negotiated prices are used as seeds for calculating subsequent suggested prices of similar executions.

Third-party arbitration permits automated output verification, a major benefit of decentralization.

When result verification of the delivered results is requested, Symbioses will compare results delivered by different Producers between each other. Should they differ, more Producers are randomly brought in by the SYMIO protocol to solve the dispute.

Note that, due to the dark-pool nature of the protocol, the Producers have no visibility or knowledge about the role they will fulfill once they deliver their results. This prevents a-priori negotiations between Producers willing to mark an execution as broken and claim the payment for it.

Instantly exploit the benefits of the Symbioses Ecosystem by integrating your legacy applications.

No reimplementation of software. Profit without requirement to adopt current software to another platform thus minimizing software integration expense.


Access control to your data is supported by robust and state-of-the-art techniques: allowing only you to access your data, not even Symbioses can access it!

When evaluating the security of the Symbioses Ecosystem consider the roles and interests of the parties involved:

  • a data provider wants the data to be protected from theft and may want to have control over it;
  • a software provider wants the software to be protected from theft;
  • a consumer needs to securely access the output data produced by an application after processing some input data;
  • a producer wants the data on the shared device to be protected from theft while sharing computing resources.

The Symbioses Ecosystem implements a security model using asymmetric cryptography, where one component may be disseminated widely and the other one is known only to the owner. This accomplishes the authentication function, where the disseminated component verifies who the owner of a digital asset is. The encryption function is performed only when the private component can decrypt a given digital asset.
