Golem brings together computers in a peer-to-peer network allowing both application owners and individual users called as "requestors" to rent resources of other users’ machines or the "providers".
- Requestors: Rent Golem’s computer power and pays GNT to access such service.
- Providers: Providers get paid for renting out their hardware or computer power.
- Software Developer: Software developers can use the Golem network as a distribution channel of their software. You can compare this to Google play store or Apple store.
