CARV and Aethir Partner to Power Next-Gen Gaming and AI, Offering Reciprocal Rewards Between Communities

[PRESS RELEASE – SANTA CLARA, California, May 2nd, 2024]

CARV, the largest modular data layer for gaming and AI, and Aethir, a global leader in distributed GPU computing, today announced a partnership to unlock opportunities driven by the merge of “User-Owned Data + Decentralized”, starting with gaming and AI.

CARV is building a modular data layer that safeguards privacy while ensuring users benefit from the value created from their data. Aethir provides a powerful decentralized infrastructure that pools and redistributes idle GPU processing power. By combining CARV’s data layer with Aethir’s distributed GPU computing capabilities, the partnership will enable cutting-edge gaming and AI applications that require immense computing resources while prioritizing data privacy and user incentives.

Three core synergies are driving the collaboration between CARV and Aethir:

Seamless Game Discovery on CARV Play: CARV Play is the go-to gamer’s achievement, social and game distribution platform, hosting 750+ web2 & web3 games and 2.5M gamers. CARV will embed Aethir cloud gaming tech into its modular layer. This allows CARV’s 2.5 million users to stream and play games without downloading large files. Gamers now will be able to easily discover and test games reducing friction and user acquisition costs.

Decentralizing CARV’s Infrastructure via Verifier Nodes: On the heels of CARV’s recent $10M series A fundraise featured in Techcrunch, CARV is further decentralizing its modular data layer to meet the scaling demand with the launch of verifier nodes. Verifier nodes check TEE nodes’ attestations on-chain, ensuring that individuals share the value created when their data is being used in a privacy-preserving way. Aethir’s GPUs include the trusted execution environment (TEE) capabilities CARV needs for privacy-preserving computation. CARV delves into how nodes can catalyze CARV from 1x to 100x here, with additional information on CARV’s node sale on CoinTelegraph here.

Aligned Ecosystem Incentives: One month post Aethir’s 100M node sales, it introduced the Cloud Drop Campaign to distribute upcoming $ATH token supply among active community members. CARV’s vibrant community is also set to participate in these rewarding initiatives. Moreover, turbo-charged with CARV’s Infinity Play, a token-locked voting mechanism, CARV’s reward campaign post node sales will include many of the current 750+ partners, bringing rewards to core CARV contributors and node holders.

“Gaming and AI are at an inflection point, fueling unprecedented demand for high-performance GPU computing,” said Victor Yu, CARV’s Co-Founder. “Through our partnership with Aethir, we’re combining forces to meet this demand in a scalable, decentralized manner while catalyzing user-driven innovation.”

“Our partnership with CARV is an important step on Aethir’s road to provide much-needed, low-latency GPU power for cloud gaming enterprises. By combining our infrastructure and CARV’s platform, Aethir is empowering the next generation of Web3 gaming,” said Daniel Wang, Aethir’s CEO.

CARV is set to launch its node sales on May 13. For details regarding CARV’s node sale, please visit For the latest updates, follow CARV on X @carv_official.
