Edge, a provider of network services built on blockchain technology, has announced the launch of multi-device onboarding. Previously, users who joined the network by adding their own computer device, were only able to add one host (aka node).
Adding multiple devices allows users to earn more from the extra spare computing capacity. The Edge network now has over 300 hosting nodes in 51 countries across the globe. Nodes are owned by individuals who connect devices to the network.
“Allowing people to add multiple devices to our edge computing network means that we will be able to expedite the growth of Edge’s reach and scale globally. Our existing community has been asking for the ability to add multiple devices in order to earn even more from their spare computing capacity, evidencing the community’s confidence and belief in our technology. This development will lead to more people joining the network, allowing them to monetize underutilized computing power, which in turn will help to drive down the cost of cloud computing as edge computing becomes further adopted.”
– Joseph Denne, CEO, and Co-Founder of Edge
Due to its distributed architecture, Edge is a more secure and cost-effective alternative to established cloud services such as Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure.
The Edge team expects the adoption of its network to continue growing at a rapid pace via its expanding pipeline of customers.
