FARMING AND FARMERS

Farmers can be compared to Bitcoin Miners because they earn rewards for providing hardware. The main difference is that while Miners essentially waste their hardware capacity to solve riddles that offer no benefit outside of the Bitcoin ecosystem, Farmers provide capacity in the form of storage, network and compute, that can be used by anyone.

HOW IT WORKS

Farmers are the backbone of ThreeFold's decentralized ecosystem.

FARMER

Everyone can become a Farmer... 

HARDWARE

... just by aquiring a 3Node or creating one themeselves out of existing hardware.

STORAGE, COMPUTE & NETWORK 

3Nodes are plug and play and automatically become part of the largest decentralized grid on the planet.

USERS AND DEVELOPERS 

The storage, network and compute of this grid is then utilized by developers and users.


As a reward for their efforts, Farmers earn ThreeFold Tokens (TFT) in two different ways:

Farming

Cultivation

BENEFITS

SUSTAINABLE AND
NEUTRAL GRID

Contribute to a movement
towards a more sustainable and neutral internet grid.

HELP THE WORLD
CONNECT 

Bring the Internet to places where it is currently not as available.

ASSURE A PROTECTED FUTURE 

The Internet has become a central part of our lives and will even become more important in the future. It needs to be fair for everyone.

EARN TFT

ThreeFold tokens are the medium of exchange in the ThreeFold ecoystem and can be bought and sold via several exchanges.
