Shuang believed, as a blockchain-driven cloud platform, BonusCloud is well positioned to solving issues faced by traditional cloud technology by recording transactions and audit in the chains. BonusCloud aims to combine virtual technology of cloud computing field with blockchain and enhance blockchain functionality of virtual machines, so as to further broaden PaaS applicaiton. On such a basis, BonusCloud will not only execute smart contract, but also network applicaiton, storage application and computing application.

BonusCloud endeavours to develop a global computing power trading platform, so as to connect such global computing resources as existing cloud computing, IDC, enterprise computing centers, and personal CPU/GPU/bandwidth etc. By attracting tens of thousands of resources contributor, platform users and application developers, it could provide a trustworthy cloud computing platform service featured by low price, wide scope and strong computing power, shaping the business model and resources distribution structures of traditional centralized cloud computing.

According to the source, BonusCloud adopts hybrid consensus algorithm of DPoS+PBFT, in which bookkeepers will be regularly elected by workers based on contribution value. All workers, bookkeepers, DApp developers will be rewarded based on weights of resources and assignments of different types. Rewards includes compensation generated by resources users and token from blocks. Furthermore, on one hand, DApp developers will be rewarded at various level based on their amount of contributions in line with Developer Impel Protocol (DIP), which selects DApp every few blocks in a given time interval. On the other hand, well-defined reward mechanism and service procurement will ensure sufficient liquidity of token, so as to ensure completeness of platform ecosystem.

BnonusCloud’s vision of becoming AWS in decentralized cloud computing industry is supported by a team of core members with proven track record and complementary mix, mainly from world leading internet and IT companies, such as Alibaba, Cisco, Baidu, Meituan, Sangfor etc, covering full range of R&D, operation and maintenance, marketing and sales.
