Aethir, the industry leader in decentralized cloud infrastructure for GPUs, has announced its highly anticipated Node Sale. Aethir is an enterprise-grade GPU service provider focused on AI and Gaming. Aethir’s decentralized cloud computing infrastructure enables GPU vendors to connect with enterprise customers who need the raw power of NVIDIA H100 chips for sophisticated AI/ML tasks.

Furthermore, Aethir’s infrastructure supports cloud gaming customers and has contracts with the world’s largest gaming and telecommunications companies, leveraging its flexibility and coverage in terms of technological and operational expertise.

$ATH token is the native token for the Aethir network, to reward vendors and node verifiers for maintaining Aethir’s decentralized cloud infrastructure network. This decentralization starts first with Verifier Nodes, the validator of our ecosystem, equal opportunity to participate, equal opportunity to validate, and equal opportunity to earn an additional bonus to spot bad actors and reduce their rewards.

Aethir aims to be an enterprise-focused infrastructure partner leveraging the Arbitrum ecosystem for DePIN and AI, as it will host its own node infrastructure in the ecosystem and prepare for its own node sale on Arbitrum.

Why run a node on Aethir?

Running a node on Aethir contributes to the decentralization of cloud compute and earn rewards from being a network participant. The first type of node in the Aethir network that will be made available is the checker node, a node for any user to operate to help in the verification of the uptime, latency, quality of service, and computational power provided by other node participants in the future. Aethir’s team always strives to ensure a decentralized approach in every aspect of the project. The team’s commitment to decentralization and community ownership starts with opening up the decentralization of the checker nodes licenses, which play a critical role in the ecosystem in validating service provision within the Aethir infrastructure.

The details of the Node sale are as follows:

  • 100,000 nodes available in a tiered pricing system.
  • The nodes will be sold on Arbitrum via a public sale.
  • Nodes are transferable one year after sale.
  • The rewards will be accumulated and earned according to a maturation logic for each user
  • No limit on the number of nodes you can purchase.
  • Special assignment for the Aethir community, partners and KOLs for whitelists for early adopters of the network

Exclusive earning opportunities for Node operators

As a node operator in the Aethir ecosystem, users can earn up to 15% of the total offering of the Aethir ecosystem (over the next four years) reserved specifically for checker node operators. Other rewards will be reserved for other mining and technical participation roles within the network. Nodes earn rewards for helping verify data and service provision within the network, acting as checks and balances for future mining throughput of AI-enabled processing chips and other computational power.

This control node for sale offers the opportunity for anyone to be part of the network to support the creation of a decentralized ecosystem for the largest collection of decentralized AI computing power, without forcing every normal user to be ready from day one to participate to heavy computational work.

Node Level Public Sale – An opportunity for everyone to participate

With nodes starting at $500 per control node, and then increasing with each level, and reserved whitelists for diverse participants across the Aethir community, partner community, KOLs and venture capital teams, this sale is designed to engage all types of participants.

Users will participate with wrapped ETH (WETH) on the Arbitrum network, and full details of the sale will be available at this link: http://checker.aethir.com Node launch details will be made available upon launch of the testnet.

Aethir is excited to announce the first public sale of tiered decentralized AI nodes, ensuring fair and broad access to its rapidly growing network. While a select number of nodes have been reserved for whitelisting, including KOLs and members of the Aethir and partner communities, the majority of nodes are open to the public for purchase on a first-come, first-served basis. This structure ensures that everyone has the opportunity to join Aethir’s revolutionary journey towards decentralization.

KOLs will receive a unique referral code to share with their community, earning a referral commission for every node sale made using their code.
