Blockchain is being touted as the technology that might soon shape many aspects of life. Bitcoin (BTC) is a product of the same tech. In the crypto world, different projects are using the blockchain in their own unique ways.
Mining finds a key place in the cryptoverse with miners using sophisticated Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) to create new crypto tokens. One crypto project, Render Network, claims to leverage the idle GPU capacity and put it to use, with returns accruing to the GPU owner. Render’s native RNDR token is up more than 30% over the past 24 hours. Let’s explore.
What are Render Network services?
The network claims to connect a GPU owner with someone who wants to perform a rendering job. It uses the concept of mining to perform a different function using idle GPU strength. It is said that the owner of a GPU can pick a job uploaded on Render Network and earn RNDR tokens by completing it. GPU owners, Render Network states, become node operators.
On the other hand, people who want to perform rendering jobs are referred to as “creators” within the network. One primary function of Render Network is said to be helping artists by storing their designs in a decentralised space.

Why is Render crypto rising?
One of the reasons could be the recent listing of the RNDR token on Coinbase for New York residents. Another reason could be the Render token’s participation in the NFT.NYC event 2022.
Separately, BTC and ETH have also gained immensely over the past one day. This could have fueled interest in other major altcoins like Render crypto.
