InterPlanetary Consensus (IPC) is a revolutionary blockchain technology that powers planetary-scale web3 apps.
IPC's breakthrough approach aims to bring web2-level speed and scale to the decentralized world by harnessing flexible networks of recursive blockchains or “subnets”. This design not only promotes massive scaling through parallel blockchains but also ensures they can communicate seamlessly with one another.
With IPC’s modular runtime, developers can run programs written in any language compilable to WebAssembly. Soon, IPC-powered networks will also be able to dynamically adjust their throughput by spawning and closing temporary subnets as needed. Developers will be able to hyper tune their networks to their needs, including custom gas schedules, their own native tokens, membership rules, <1s blocktimes, & more.
IPC’s modular runtime enables the creation of lightweight and flexible blockchains, adaptable to various platforms such as web browsers or mobile devices. Moreover, IPC-powered networks can dynamically adjust their throughput by spawning and closing temporary subnets as needed.
Lilypad enables users to run AI workloads in a decentralized GPU network where anyone can get paid to connect their compute nodes to the network and run jobs.
Lilypad uses IPC to build a dedicated subchain that underpins Lilypad's computational network and enables Lilypad's own token (LP) for service and gas payments.
Fluence is a decentralized serverless platform & computing marketplace powered by blockchain economics. Fluence is a global, permissionless, scalable, and secure alternative to centralized cloud computing platforms.
Fluence will use IPC to build a dedicated Fluence subchain with custom computational primitives and enable Fluence's own token for service and gas payments
Spark is a trustless retrieval sampling protocol for Filecoin that allows users to contribute resources to improving the Filecoin Network and earn rewards.
Spark plans to use Mycelium, a public general-purpose L2 built on the IPC technology stack to run retrieval jobs and distribute rewards at scale.
Lighthouse is a perpetual file storage protocol that allows the ability to pay once and store forever.
Lighthouse will contribute to Mycelium, a public general-purpose L2 built on the IPC technology stack.
IPC comes from the builders at Protocol Labs, including the founding members of key projects like Filecoin and IPFS, which power much of the global web3 ecosystem. IPC is compatible with Filecoin and EVM-compatible chains (with more to come).
