As we begin 2021, we are extremely excited to unveil our first sneak peak of what we call Hypernet Core, the layer 2 scaling piece of the Hypernet Protocol stack. See it in action:

Click to watch: Hypernet Protocol Demonstration Video

The Hypernet Core is designed to enable gasless microtransactions that are virtually instantaneous. As Todd explains in the demo, two of our major aims are:

  • User-friendliness in the purchase of services, including for those who are unfamiliar with blockchain
  • The creation of a user-friendly developer tool. The goal is to make it easy for developers with little to no…

Today the teams at Hypernet Labs and Storj jointly announce a software integration connecting Storj’s Tardigrade with Hypernet Labs Galileo. The integration enables you to easily perform compute functions (data science, simulations, etc.) on your data stored in Tardigrade and manage and share data in your Tardigrade account without using an uplink CLI.

Tardigrade Connectors bridge the chasm between the applications we use everyday and the underlying storage infrastructure on which application data is stored. Galileo provides an intuitive, unified web portal to HPC, cloud, and traditional on-premises resources for parallel processing, batch processing, and collaboration. …

  • The Hypernet Protocol aims to address blockchain throughput issues by incorporating Connext’s latest protocol, Vector, into a seamless experience for developers and end users.
  • The collaborative work aims to facilitate mass adoption of blockchain-secured payment systems for decentralized computing and that are generalizable to other subscription and on-demand metered services.
  • The Protocol is meant to facilitate a blockchain-secured marketplace, which Hypernet Labs is building to enable users to buy and sell access to computing resources through the Galileo web application.
  • Connext is an open-source, peer-to-peer protocol of networked state channels that efficiently and economically facilitate micropayments on the Ethereum blockchain.


Hypernet Labs continues to make significant technical progress bridging cutting edge scientific computing with blockchain technology.

Galileo Cargo Bays: new and improved storage features for big data

The Hypernet engineering team has been plowing forward with improvements to the underlying scientific computing technology that will provide a use case for the Hypernet blockchain protocol.

To make sure our first product, Galileo, is a killer app, we are perfecting several new features, including:

  • Cargo Bays, or storage integration, eliminating the need to move data
  • In-app text editor, allowing users to edit their files without re-uploading
  • Jupyter Notebook integration

The hugely significant cargo bay feature allows users to connect to their own object-storage providers, including popular options like Dropbox and Box as well as competitive alternative options. …

Hypernet and its portal application, Galileo, constitute foundational technology that we are bringing into the world for the very first time, tying together disparate areas of computer science in order to impact all areas of research and development affected by computing. The current stage of technical development is the most important for making Hypernet’s ubiquitous compute a reality.

We are focusing on delivering a seamless experience to consumers of computing power (the demand) for the deployment of all their scientific workloads. Our goal is to realize the adoption of our protocol through a powerful real world use case, driven by…

Despite the global challenges that we are all facing together, Hypernet Labs has marked an important milestone with the limited release of the third version of the Hypernet portal application, Galileo.

This month, power users of computing infrastructure have been testing the new version and features prior to wider release. Galileo 3.0 is a significant technical achievement. Its genesis required foundational innovation and the extensive user testing we have been carrying out over the past several months.

Since March 1, 2020, Galileo users have run the equivalent of 2,239,704,506 seconds, 622,140 hours, or 71 years worth of computing work using…

Hypernet Labs fights SARS-CoV-2 using Galileo and computing power.

We’ve had a productive summer so far at Hypernet Labs, and we’ve done our best to rise to the challenge of the global crisis. Our work with computer scientists and medical researchers has been recognized in academic publications as well as VentureBeat. We continue to work with COVID-19 researchers and recruit them to the Galileo computing portal alongside knowledge workers in other fields and industries.

We will soon reach out to Hypernet community members interested in donating computing power for this research through our emerging marketplace. Please contact us at hypernet@hypernetwork.io if you are interested in participating.

We’ve also made…

Together we are living through a historic moment and unprecedented experience. But in every crisis and tragedy, there is also an opportunity to work harder to make changes and make things better. We at Hypernet Labs are working to rise to the challenge and fulfill our mission of supporting scientific discovery, human progress, and ultimately, human life.

Here are some highlights from the past two months:

  • Since the end of March, we have on-boarded scientists and researchers around the world, in various fields, as users of the Galileo web application, powered by Hypernet.
  • Many of these researchers are using Galileo…
