Decentralized Infrastructure (DePIN)

Gaming Infrastructure for the Decentralized Era

Beamable is setting forth on the next step of our journey: taking the decentralized “Private Cloud” edition of Beamable, and integrating it with a node-based blockchain architecture that will enable thousands of node operators to contribute services back to commercial game developers.

How will it work?

The Beamable Network will operate three types of nodes that will route requests and compensate node operators.

Container Nodes

Container nodes are where the actual computation happens. Beamable containers allow flexible microservices to be executed, which can include everything from custom C# game logic, to off-the-shelf “games as a service” modules and third-party plugins.

Router Nodes

Routers are API gateways that link games to the containers capable of delivering the appropriate quality of service (QoS) they need; accounting for factors such as latency (relative to the players and game servers favoring high-speed edge nodes where possible), the container nodes quality-of-service history and overall performance.

Validator Nodes

Validators are a decentralized network of nodes that check the containers to confirm that they deliver the workloads they report, cross-referencing with other validators and the games that provision services. Nodes that report inaccurate data (i.e., data that falls out of consensus with the network) can be penalized or even banned from the network.

Beamable DePIN Technology Investments To-Date

Metering

All the metering and QoS telemetry for accounting of compute usage is in place

Distributed Actor System

A distributed actor system allows for workloads to operate closer to where users are, such as edge nodes on a far-flung network

Microservices

Beamable Microservices can run anywhere on the internet (your own developer workstation, hyperscalers, edge nodes, etc.) and bind to the Beamable Network

Live Marketplace

The Beamable Marketplace allows developers to easily adopt packaged Microservices, and deploy them to their environments in an adhoc manner

Infrastrcture-as-code

Beamable infrastructure is fully codified, as part of the Private Cloud offering, and can already be deployed in customer cloud accounts

Deployment Agnostic

All Beamable tooling, SDK, and workflows are designed bottom up to be compatible with both private deployments, multi-tenanted deployments and the decentralized network

Federation

Beamable “federated services” allows for last-mile, single-point solution to be plugged in to standardized API interfaces, which reduces implementation surface area
