Boosteroid team that is creating a cloud services platform announced the final ICO stage. At the previous stages investors expressed significant interest in the project and invested more than 5,5 million USD.
The token sale will continue from January 15th till February 15th, 2018. The developers plan to exchange 400 million BTR tokens for ETH, BTC, LTC and BCH. The price of 1 BTR is $1,88 and corresponds to 1 hour computing power rent.
Investors who purchase from 1000 to 10 000 BTR will get additional 10% bonus tokens, from 10 000 to 100 000 BTR – 15%, from 100 000 to 1 000 000 BTR – 20%, from 1 000 000 and more BTR – 25%.
Boosteroid is a cloud services platform that provides convenient access to computing power, storages and software products.
Cloud computer will allow to process video, create 3D-graphics, play games requiring high computer performance or carry out machine learning even on the device with the lowest performance. The only thing that user needs is a stable connection to the high-speed Internet.
According to Boosteroid CEO Ivan Shvaichenko, the project is based on a revolutionary idea to make user-interface of the service so easy that even a child will be able to deal with it.
“Currently it is rather difficult to rent computing power provided by market leaders. It is necessary to learn many instructions and watch a number of video guides. Besides these services are as “easy-to-use” as for example MS-DOS. We decided to reach the iPad-level and make it clear even for a child – notes project CEO Ivan Shvaichenko – with a really user-friendly interface users won’t need to spend time and efforts on complex settings and tutorial”.
Unlike other similar services, Boosteroid will be multifunctional.
Users will not only have an opportunity to work with big data files, render video but also play games using any device even a PC with the lowest performance.
The only required thing is the high-speed Internet. It does not matter where a user is located and how much processing power their devices have.
It will be possible to access computing power both via browser and a desktop app that will have a single account on mobile devices and PCs.
The application will include various text and graphic editors, cloud storages, social networks and Boostore where a user can buy programs for charge or free of charge. Users will be able to choose programs they need and launch them immediately: the system will choose necessary computing power. Advanced users will be able to change the settings of their cloud computer themselves.
Developers believe that the service will be useful for a large number of users. It will be possible to try Boosteroid yet in spring 2018.
Boosteroid demo and machine learning
The developers have already launched the service with a limited functionality and conducted an experiment. The team learnt AI-models to turn photos into pictures made in style of famous artists. The experiment was made using Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure and Boosteroid computing power.
“Our budget was 1 BTR. As the result we were able to carry out machine learning for approximately 6.30 minutes using AWS & Microsoft Azure computing power and 10 minutes using Google Cloud. Boosteroid computing power allowed us to do it way longer – for an hour”, – mentioned Ivan Shvaichenko.
According to project CEO Ivan Shvaichenko, computing cloud test mode will help receive feedback and fix all technical problems.
“We will increase the number of available virtual machines and we will also launch a test version of payments with BTR, digital currency, EUR and USD after the ICO” – told Boosteroid founder.
The company has already built a data center in Ukraine and will start building data centers in free industrial zones of Georgia in January or February, 2018. It is also planned to locate data centers in Iceland and the Arab Emirates.
*1 BTR = the cost of one hour computing power rent on the basis of eight NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphic cards; two Intel Xeon E5 2680v4 processors; RAM 256Gb; SSD 960Gb.
