Symbioses is a fully operational, turn-key solution for interoperable, low latency, and affordable Cloud Computing.

Symbioses delivers the benefits of forging spare computing capacity of millions of devices around the world. It does not require technical knowledge for its usage which drastically expands the potential user base and instantly monetizes the idle computing resources of retail or enterprise devices, thus increasing profitability potential.

Symbioses seamlessly integrates 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.

Advanced features to improve the network and the user experience:

Third Party Arbitration and Advanced Usage Efficiencies are integrated to improve blockchain optimization of both outcome verification and provider profitability

GPU, Multi-Platform, and Multi-OS Support creating network diversity, thus expanding target producer audience.

Legacy Application Integration with Auction & Adaptive Pricing to create a frictionless user experience to minimize barriers for enterprise adoption and non-technical user penetration.

Unique Security & Encryption embedded for additional layers of protection to meet heightened consumer and corporate demands.


Symbioses is fully encrypted providing both the producer and end-user full security through the SYMIO protocol.
The SYMIO protocol does this by:

Encrypting both input and output data.

Avoiding open extra ports.

Using a multi-tenant system via hosting of third-party SaaS and data.

Utilizing symmetric-key algorithms for encryption and verification.

All traffic within the Symbioses Network is secured using symmetric-key encryption. Even the same data transmitted by two different users in the network shows a complete different set of bits transmitted at the lower layers of the network.


SYMIO is an off-chain, agnostic protocol. This makes it both considerably more scalable as well as interoperable with other decentralized technologies. The SYMIO Protocol provides the following features:


Symbioses abstraction layer on top of the Ethereum blockchain allows the Symbioses off-chain protocol to asynchronously distribute computing jobs while the blockchain settles the transactions.


SYMIO aggregates block verification when presenting transactions back onto the Ethereum blockchain for improved efficiency and a dramatic reduction of the block verification expense to the end user.


In the case of the Symbioses Network being fully occupied with computing jobs, the extra / unallocated capacity can be offloaded to a centralized or a decentralized cloud provider.

Proof of Work Resources

The SYMIO protocol uses Proof of Work Resources (PoWR) to create an incentive for Producers to participate in a competition for hosting a SaaS instance and calculating its results correctly demonstrating their contribution to the network. This forms the basis of earning SYM tokens.

SYMIO is a dark protocol, meaning there is no bias toward who is rewarded for computational power.

PoWR enables a useful blockchain framework that does not waste computing power on hash discovery, but rather shares these resources towards useful tasks required by the Consumers.


The Producer Application incorporates potential profitability analysis allowing the user to input their electricity rate and setting their availability to the network (also available in a headless version for server implementation).

Producers can potentially improve their profitability by up the 10x through Symbioses Saas deployment versus crypto-mining alone.

The Consumer Dashboard displays the user’s token balance, the user’s history, and the available job functions. New jobs are launched via this application. The end user can tailor their search based on budget and requirements of facility type, connectivity, availability and producer reputation.

Symbioses substantially lowers the consumers’ cost of compute resources by up to 90% versus existing cloud-based solutions. The embedded job functions reduces adaptation and frictional costs incurred by consumers to implement solutions.

Symbioses is running today.



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.

Symbioses can provide at least 10x the revenue with the same device and same energy, utilizing the same computing power. The automatic system always mines the most profitable coin, for each device at the moment of use.


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.

Artificial intelligence and Deep Learning require a lot of computing power. Symbioses saves up to 90% of the cost of centralized cloud computing services.


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.

We are currently running scientific simulations, helping scientific communities to conduct research in their fields.

Most frequent questions and answers


Symbioses was born in 2014 when the founders were analyzing the scalability issues of different blockchain implementations.

Symbioses seeks to create the largest peer-to-peer network to monetize computing resources throughout the world, connecting non-interoperable networks utilizing its own off-chain protocol.

Overcoming current scalability issues of blockchains are a crucial challenge every blockchain-based project is facing. Symbioses’ approach in this sense is a key contribution to the further development of blockchains in general.

On the other hand, Symbioses is directly challenging the entrenched oligopoly currently dominating cloud computing, democratizing the space and ultimately delivering computing power to a wider public at a much more affordable price.


Symbioses is a working product. The network is currently accessible by a selected group of users who are helping to reach the level of robustness and minimal infrastructure required for the network to go live.
