Note: DADI has been rebranded to Edge. This thread has been updated accordingly



The world's first dedicated edge network. Peer-to-peer, powered by the blockchain and built using the spare capacity all around us.

Edge is kinder to the environment, fairer to people and better for business.

It offers services that are faster, cheaper and more secure than the cloud.

Current Status

Developed over four years, the Edge Network has recently gone live with its first core service: CDN

The network’s storage solution moves to beta this year.

Multiple additional services are in the road map, including Edge Compute, a KVDB and ML tools.

Highlights

  • The token of the Edge Network, $EDGE, was launched in January 2018 through a crowdsale and token distribution event to our community
  • Contributing capacity to the network is possible today using Linux based devices, with Mac, Windows and Mobile versions expected soon
  • There are currently over 500 nodes active on the network in 51 countries and 157 cities, processing c32 million requests per month, delivering content for established businesses

The Edge Paradigm

Edge networking is a distributed computing paradigm which brings data storage and computation as close to the point of need as possible, pushing applications, data and computing power away from centralised data centers.

This reduces the volumes of data that must be moved, the consequent traffic, and the distance the data must travel, providing lower latency and reduced transmission costs. It’s better for the environment too.

The Edge Network is a tokenised platform: it uses its own utility token as the mechanism for buying and selling services in the network, enabling individuals to participate through the contribution of their spare computational power.

Blockchain for Value Transfer

The Edge Network is a tokenised platform. Revenues from network use are converted to the $EDGE utility token, and these are distributed to nodes in the network in return for their computational power.

$EDGE is a deflationary token with a fixed supply: individuals who contribute to the network provide a stake in $EDGE in order to do so, reducing the circulating supply of the token, making it more scarce, and increasing its value over time.

In summary: with services charged based on a fixed US$ price, as we experience growth in customers using the network, more nodes are required, which reduces the tokens that are available to buy services, resulting in an ever higher $ purchasing value.

Key Benefits

1. Performance

Edge’s architecture creates a hyper-local peering system that routes traffic from nodes that are as close to the end consumer as possible – going as far as delivering within the local network loop.

This reduces the distance and volume of data being moved, which massively increases the performance of services.

2. Security

Files stored within the Edge Network are broken in to hundreds of encrypted fragments, with no one file stored on a single machine.

This removes the attack vector for file storage, providing a platform that is significantly more secure than traditional storage methods.

3. Price

Because it’s making use of existing capacity, the costs in the Edge Network are significantly lower than in traditional cloud environments.

We are seeing average cost savings of c77% vs. traditional cloud providors.

Customers that also contribute capacity to the network can unlock further discounts.

4. The Environment

Traditional data centers consume roughly 3% of all globally generated power and account for approximately 2% of greenhouse gas emissions – a carbon footprint equivalent to the airline industry.

In contrast to this, because it is making use of existing device capacity, every request within the Edge Network represents a net carbon saving.

First Service: Edge CDN

Fast and cost-efficient content delivery at the edge. A CDN that makes websites, APIs, eCommerce stores, mobile applications and SaaS platforms more performant and highly secure.

CDN Features

Hyper Local

Edge CDN has hundreds of nodes in over 60 countries, getting your content closer to your audience than ever before.

Integrated Image Transformation

Full media pipeline allows for just in time image transformation: Blur, filter, flip, format, resize, rotate, saturate, sharpen and crop.

Offsets the weight of media management to your delivery solution.

Real Time Optimisation

Real time compression and resizing of assets at the point of request saves an average of 60% in filesize, speeding up delivery and reducing your overall costs

End to End TLS

Take workload off your origin by serving SSL certificates from the edge, accelerating performance and increasing availability.

Cost Effective

Edge CDN saves 30%+ on average vs. traditional content distribution networks as a result of better media compression and the use of edge devices instead of centralised data centers.

Why are you guys entering into this blockchain space? DADI has been through several business pivots it seems, from content and digital agency, to a data agency, to a technology agency (CMS / CRM / general online ad stuff) and now with an added blockchain layer to what you already did. Why is this time around going to be a lasting success when it previously never did?

It seems that you are basically adding blockchain to what you did before and now proudly you're telling everyone that you "already have a working product". Add a blockchain layer to a local food shop and boom they are already ahead of a lot of (in the future) worthless ICOs.

Allow for us to be a bit skeptical. Since it's been apparent that lots of companies are now heading into the blockchain space all of a sudden seeking a quick buck for themselves (founders) and their partners. It's time for us all to be even more skeptical and critical of the numerous token sales.

Thanks for the note stuffstuff,

We sold our last business - Airlock, a digital agency - to Publicis in 2011, the second largest media agency in the world.

During our time at Airlock we also developed Symphony CMS, which had an active community of c.20k contributors.

We setup DADI some time after the sale of Airlock, in 2013. DADI has been a technology company since day #1, and we've been consistently iterating ever since. Our original web service was data focused and we've built out from there. There are currently some 200 brands using the platform.

This represents the natural evolution of that success.

The products that we have in production today are our core web services. These are running in a containerized setup within traditonal cloud platforms in the main, but it's important to note that we also have a working prototype for the distributed network live, which is powering the content layer for one of our current customers.

I get where you're coming from with the skeptical line of questioning, and we take the same view about 99% of the crowdfunding events out there. But that's not what we’re about.

We're being completely transparent about what the funds we are raising will be used for. Furthermore the decision to make our technology available through the decentralized web makes perfect sense: currently web services are provided by a handful of massive tech companies who control everything – the market, data, technology availability etc. And their platforms are hugely complicated and very difficult to scale.

We're creating an open model that bypasses these companies and puts power back into the hands of the end users, and surely that can only be a good thing.

Thanks for the questions, coinporch.

It's not entirely like SiaCoin, though there are some similarities. SiaCoin is more of a decentralized S3, focusing on secure distributed storage. What we're building is a decentralized cloud computing network, tailored specifically to web services. We have a number of web services already built and being used in production on some pretty big sites, see https://dadi.cloud/en/#services for more information on them.

I think there are a number of reasons you should invest in our project, but it really depends on what the project means to you. As an engineer, I love the idea of turning our global device pool from it's current dormant state into a living and breathing network powering all the services around us. I think it's mad that we have so many devices all over the world, doing next to nothing, and yet still we stockpile servers in datacentres and use them to host our services.

As an investor though, that might not be why you want to invest, instead you might be looking to see if a project is a legitimate organisation or company (check – https://dadi.cloud/en/due-diligence), has a decent whitepaper that properly explains the technology behind the idea (check – http://dadi.link/iW), has an established team with relevant experience (check – https://dadi.cloud/en/team), has a realistic roadmap (check – https://dadi.cloud/en/roadmap), and perhaps even a track record of successful product delivery (check – https://dadi.tech/en).

I hope this answers your questions. Just let me know if there is anything else you'd like to know.

Hi Sxafir,

We don't have an open social bounty as we want to avoid any semblance of shilling. Maintaining the integrity of our proposition is very important to us as a founding team.

However we are open to individual discussions with potential partners, and have a dedicated token pool set aside for meaningful engagements. So if you think you can help, please drop me a PM.

Note that individuals are obviously free to use their referral codes in social and other spaces. A guide can be found here: https://dadi.cloud/en/referral-program

Hi illusionspeak,

Presale

The price of the DADI token has been set at $0.25 USD (0.000754 Eth at the time of writing) for the Presale. The Presale is capped at $2.5 million USD.

1 ETH = 1,326 DADI tokens

This represents a 50% discount on the Public sale price.

Public sale

The price of the DADI token has been set at $0.50 USD (0.001508 Eth at the time of writing) for the Public sale. The Presale is capped at $25 million USD.

1 ETH = 663 DADI tokens

-

During each round the exchange rate will be updated regularly, either every 12 hours or every 24hrs.

Hi imjustsayintho,

"SONM is a universal fog blockchain based supercomputer. It is an ethereum based network of globally distributed computational power. SONM project’s main purpose is to provide safe, cost efficient, means for executing general purpose computing workloads that can range from game servers all the way up to complex calculations of various forms of scientific research, using a free decentralized marketplace."

SONM is a general purpose computing cloud, whereby you can rent machine resource to execute specific tasks. Their focus appears to be on functionality traditionally served by super computer clusters, such as scientific projects, neural networks and rendering. However they do mention site hosting as a potential use case, albeit with a significant lack of clarity and with big barriers to adoption such as a lack of ability to map in traditional top level domains, instead falling back to a service- specific address layer:

"In the address bar the service may look like name,site.sonm or probably just %name%.sonm (which would be the name of the service that finds a hidden node using the locator and loads the website)."

Our focus is on the provision of clearly defined interlinked web services (See https://dadi.tech/, many of which are already in market and proven at scale. In this and other respects we're significantly ahead of already-ICO'd projects like SONM.
