The i-systems company has invested PLN 1 million in the GamerHash app. The application is extremely easy to use and allows you to convert unused computing power into digital products for its users or payouts in Bitcoins.
GamerHash is a platform for Windows systems that opens up new opportunities for users of home computers.
– When buying a computer, usually for a couple of thousands PLN, its full potential is not used. Especially when browsing websites, watching movies or listening to music. Our PC in such tasks simply “gets bored” – explains Patryk Pusch, Chairman of the Board at GamerHash. – We wanted to use the resources that users already have – the computing power, and give them the opportunity to exchange it for some benefits. At current Bitcoin rates, the benefits value is up to PLN 300 per month. Such benefits include Netflix or Spotify premium accounts, cinema tickets, GSM top-ups, top-up on player platforms, e-vouchers, virtual currency in games or simply PC games – adds Pusch.
The obtained computing power through GamerHash is used for legal cryptocurrency mining, and in the future will also be used for CGI (computer-generated imagery) rendering or machine learning. This means that shared computing power can be used to process animations and special effects scenes or to influence the faster acquisition of knowledge by self-learning computer programs.
In addition to direct investment, i-systems will support GamerHash technologically. As the company has vast experience in the area of transaction systems, it will develop the e-commerce part of GamerHash.
– At i-systems we always want to be close to the latest technologies. Investing in GamerHash is a natural step towards blockchain solutions for us. We believe that those solutions have a much wider application than just financial operations. We also think that distributed applications will significantly affect the way of creating modern IT systems – says Paweł Szewczyk, Vice President at i-systems.
Tar Heel Capital Pathfinder has also invested in GamerHash. This is part of Tar Heel Capital, which supports innovative and forward-looking technological projects at the seed and start-up stages.
