Wouldn’t it be nice to make some extra cash while browsing social media?
在浏览社交媒体的时候多赚一些钱不是很好吗?

That’s the promise of Golem, a peer-to-peer market for putting your computer’s excess CPU power to use for other people. And today, after three years and 14 software implementations later, it’s going live on the ethereum blockchain.
那是傀儡的承诺,一个放电脑的CPU功率超过使用其他人对等的市场。今天,经过三年14软件实现后,就住在伊斯利恩blockchain。

The project, which sold out of its GNT token in 20 minutes, raising 820,000 ETH – around $340 million, according to current metrics – in 2016 by selling its crypto utility tokens to investors will likely see a significant amount of fanfare since Golem was one of the earliest generations of ethereum applications.
项目,它出售了其GNT令牌20分钟,提高820000作用3亿4000万美元左右,按照目前的指标- 2016通过出售其加密效用的代币投资者可能会因为傀儡之一是应用最早的一代伊斯利恩看到大张旗鼓的大量。

But it has also received some amount of criticism for its failure to turn around a product relatively quickly.

但它也因未能迅速扭转产品而受到一些批评。

“This is typical for software development in general, and blockchain in particular, we underestimate the complexity of what we want to do,” Julian Zawistowski, CEO and founder of Golem, told CoinDesk. “You always underestimate how difficult it is, and this was obviously the case with us.”
“这是在一般的软件开发的典型,和blockchain尤其我们低估了复杂性,我们想做的事情,”Julian Zawistowski的傀儡,创始人兼首席执行官告诉CoinDesk。”你总是低估它有多困难,这显然是我们的情况。

That said, even though the project is still far from its goal of building a worldwide supercomputer, the mainnet launch is an important step forward in proving out its underlying architecture and ethereum itself.
就是说,即使该项目仍远离其建立一个全球超级计算机的启动是一个目标,mainnet提出证明其基础架构和伊斯利恩本身重要的一步。

In its current format, the service enables computers to rent unused CPU power for creating computer-generated imagery (CGI) using Blender, an open-source software for animated films, visual effects, interactive 3D applications and video games. It works by swapping computational power for GNT through an interface that connects to Blender directly.
以其当前的格式,该服务使计算机能够租用未使用的CPU能力,用混合机生成计算机生成的图像(CGI),这是一个开源的动画电影软件、视觉特效、交互式3D应用程序和视频游戏。它通过交换的计算能力-通过一个接口连接到搅拌机直接。

And this current release, Golem Brass Beta, is an effort to test whether the technology functions in real market conditions with real money. “We have to see how it behaves in the wild,” Zawistowski said.
这个电流释放,魔像黄铜测试,是为了测试是否真正花市场条件的技术功能。”我们已经看到它如何表现在野生环境中,”Zawistowski说。

CTO and co-founder of the company, Piotr “Viggith” Janiuk, told CoinDesk:
首席技术官和共同创始人的公司, Piotr”viggith”janiuk,告诉CoinDesk:

“The release is there to prove to us and everyone that we can actually deliver something that can run on mainnet and that’s really usable. And well, it is.”

“释放来证明给我们大家,我们可以提供的东西,可以运行在mainnet真的有用。好吧,是的。”

Big ambitions
大的野心

As such, Golem today works through a software client, which connects the two parties in Golem’s network – “providers,” those that sell computational resources, and “requestors,” those that want to rent CPU power.
因此,魔像今天通过一个软件的客户端,连接双方在傀儡网络”供应商,“那些卖的计算资源,并“请求者,“那些想租CPU功率。

The providers are given small tasks, or “subtasks,” which went pieced together, create a full computational picture.
供应商给出的小任务,或“子任务”去拼凑在一起,创建一个完整的计算图。

“We send those subtasks over a peer-to-peer network where peers compute them, return the results for you and connect that into one piece and pay for the use of the other peoples’ computers,” Zawistowski said.
“我们将这些子任务在一个对等网络中的节点计算,回报你的结果和连接到一块,支付的其他人的电脑的使用,”Zawistowski说。

Zawistowski explained that all interactions happen directly between nodes on the network. While it’s not built on a blockchain itself, Golem uses ethereum not only for its token, GNT, and for consensus on GNT transactions.
Zawistowski解释说,所有的相互作用发生在网络的节点之间的直接。虽然它不是建立在blockchain,傀儡使用以太坊不仅为其表征,GNT,和在GNT交易达成共识。

For now, the primary function of the mainnet release is to test the economic assumptions of the network, as well as appealing to early adopters for feedback on usability and issues.
现在的mainnet释放的主要功能是测试网络的经济假设,以及吸引尝鲜对可用性和问题反馈。

“You start with a very simple Golem that should work up to a point where we have the Golem which is perfect and self-contained and modular, and you give it a computation and it’s done in a matter of seconds,” Janiuk said.
“你开始用一个很简单的人,应该起到一个地步,我们的傀儡,是完美的,独立的,模块化的,你给它一个计算它在一秒钟内完成,”Janiuk说。

And that future goal is first to create a dedicated plugin for Blender so that there’s no extra step for using Golem’s service through the application, and then, even more ambitious, allowing the network to provide computational resources for the sought-after form of artificial intelligence called machine learning.
而未来的目标是先创建一个专用的插件,有搅拌机使用傀儡的服务通过应用,没有额外的步骤,然后,更加雄心勃勃,让网络为寻求形式的人工智能机器学习后提供的计算资源。

“We definitely need to move in the direction of machine learning. This is something that is suited to Golem pretty well,” Janiuk said.
“我们一定要朝着机器学习的方向前进。”。这是适合魔像的很好,”Janiuk说。

Inventing the wheel
发明轮子

But that will take time.
但这需要时间。

Speaking to the project’s long road to production, Janiuk told CoinDesk, “Interfacing with ethereum seems pretty straightforward, but once you want to move into production it is difficult. You have to make sure that it is as bulletproof as possible; there can be no holes because you’re risking someone else’s money.”
对项目的漫长道路的生产来说,Janiuk对CoinDesk说,“与伊斯利恩似乎很简单,但是一旦你想进入生产是很困难的。你必须确保它尽可能的防弹;因为你在冒别人的钱,所以不会有漏洞。”

And what the team behind Golem found was that their aim of splitting computational tasks up into smaller tasks and then reintegrated them was an uphill battle.
什么在傀儡的团队发现,他们的目的是分解计算任务分成更小的任务,然后重新整合他们的是一场艰苦的战斗。

The project faced with complicated and previously unresearched technical barriers.
面对复杂的和以前的研究技术壁垒的项目。

For example, while verification – or proving that a computation is correct – is easy to achieve for simple crypto transactions, it becomes extremely difficult to develop around different kinds of computations.
例如,对于简单的加密事务来说,验证(或证明计算是正确的)是很容易实现的,围绕不同类型的计算变得非常困难。

On top of that, there was the issue of building on ethereum, which has seen its fair share of hurdles recently, as platform apps cause transaction backlogs and rising fees. Even ethereum creator Vitalik Buterin lamented the state of affairs on the network recently, telling an audience in Seoul, South Korea that app makers are “screwed” by scaling challenges.
最重要的是,有建筑在伊斯利恩的问题,最近看到其公平份额的障碍,为平台的应用程序导致交易积压和学费上涨。即使buterin感叹造物主Vitalik虚灵议会事务的状态,最近在网络上,他告诉汉城的听众,韩国软件制造商“拧”,通过扩展的挑战。

Yet, as witnessed during CryptoKitties’ peak hype, this isn’t limited to Golem, but something that extends across the industry.
然而,作为见证cryptokitties峰值炒作期间,这不限于傀儡,而是延伸到整个行业。

“Any decentralized solution right now is I believe still at least a few steps before being even close to something that can be called a production-grade solution,” Janiuk said.
“任何分散的解决方案现在我相信仍然至少有几个步骤之前被更接近的东西,可以被称为一个产品级的解决方案,”Janiuk说。

And Zawistowski compared the situation to web development and infrastructure building in the 90s. While web developers today have a host of tools to choose from when building web applications, in the early days, developers had to start from scratch.
和Zawistowski的情况相比Web开发和基础设施建设的同时,在90年代,Web开发人员今天有一系列的工具来构建Web应用程序的选择时,在早期,开发人员不得不从头开始。

This is true of the blockchain space as well, Zawistowski said, adding:
这是真正的blockchain空间一样,Zawistowski说,加入:

“Very often you have to invent the wheel to solve your problems. Not reinventing the wheel, but actually inventing the wheel.”

“你经常需要发明轮子来解决你的问题。不是重新发明轮子,而是发明轮子。
