About this Episode

In this episode we talk to Greg Osuri, the CEO of Akash Network. The DeCloud for DeFi, and the world's first decentralized cloud computing marketplace built with the help of Cosmos-SDK and Tendermint.

Akash Decentralized Cloud is 'a faster, better, and lower cost cloud built for DeFi, decentralized projects, and high growth companies, providing unprecedented scale, flexibility, and price performance. 10x lower in cost, its serverless computing platform is compatible with all cloud providers and all applications that run on the cloud'.

We spoke to Greg about decentralized cloud, of course and what are its benefits. About open-source and its efficiency. The stages in the development of cloud technology. Interoperability, scalability, composability... and a lot of other fancy, tech terms that Greg breaks down for much easier understanding. We talked about DeFi and flash loans. About SLA for AWS and alternative data providers. ‘Amazon tax’ and the ‘Burgers and fries’ business model.
