The goal of Astra is to use the blockchain technology to empower people to participate in creating a global and trustworthy supercomputer to disrupt the cloud-computing industry. By uniting as a part of the Astra project, the society can share the computational power of their devices that together will create a machine with previously unknown possibilities.
This supercomputer can then be used to power scientific discoveries to improve healthcare, battle the global warming, find solutions to economic challenges and more. The applications are virtually unlimited!
Astra is building 5th Generation Trustworthy Social Supercomputer. It will empower common people and data-centers to trustfully offer their idle computing resources for noble causes such as Cancer Research, Drug Discovery, and for building Artificial Intelligence Machines.
