What is Render Token (RNDR)? 

Render Token (RNDR) is an ERC-20 utility token used by artists on the network to exchange for GPU compute power from GPU providers (node operators). Designed as the payment token for services offered by Render Network. 

Render Network is a distributed GPU rendering network built on top of the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain, focusing to link studios and artists in need of GPU compute power with mining partners willing to rent their GPU capabilities out.  

Solving GPU limitations 

Using the Render Network, creators can tap into GPU power to render final images at higher speeds and lower costs than previously available. While node operators rent out their spare GPU to creators and receive RNDR tokens for time spent rendering. 

Despite being in great demand, GPUs are often idle when they are not being used by a developer to render their own work. By tapping into these unused resources, the Render Network suggests it can greatly improve inefficiencies in the current system. 

Utilizing the inherent security properties of the Ethereum blockchain, proprietary assets are hashed upon upload and sent to nodes piecemeal for rendering. All RNDR payments are stored in escrow during rendering and are released to node operators upon manual verification by the commissioning artist of successful work.


Founded in 2016 and launched in 2017 by Jules Urbach, CEO of OTOY, the RNDR team is based out of Los Angeles with team members from all over the world.

Render Phase I: Post Token Sale (Q1 2018) 

Begin to enable cloud rendering services on the orc.otoy.com website with the ability to exchange tokens for rendering services that will be kept track of and facilitated by the blockchain. These services would be initially handled by OTOY or third party servers and would set the framework for a reliable transition into the peer-to-peer framework of rendering.   

Render Phase II: Development Process & Preparation for Peer-to-Peer Transition (Q2 2018) 

Leverage the ecosystem to bring ~7 million users on-board with the Render token platform on the ORC Network and create a simple user interface so that users and developers can easily utilize their GPU power for rendering and streaming jobs in exchange for Render tokens. To also create and expand the structure for the back-end OTOY network that will handle the efficient processing of the rendering and streaming transactions via the Ethereum blockchain. Beta launch of the network and testing will take place in this phase 

Render Phase III: Launch Peer-to-Peer Network (Q3/Q4 2018) 

Launch the peer-to-peer exchange and unlock full capability of the Render token network to enable users to use the untapped GPU power from the available resource pool. Make back-end processes streamlined and make the facilitation of the rendering/streaming job to the recipient completely automated through smart contracts and blockchain development. 

Render Phase IV: The Ultimate Vision (TBD) 

Once the peer-to-peer network is all set-up and running in a stable manner, begin to focus efforts to unlock the true value and potential of the render jobs processed through the Render Token and the ORC network.  Stress the capabilities that they will bring in terms of custom streaming permissions, copyright protection, and unique render creation and publishing. Eventually, the process of rendering using our framework will carry additional value in the form of new and exclusive features. Release additional information on this process during future written posts and documentation.
