The CEDEN Network
The foundation of our infrastructure toolkit is the CEDEN Network.
CEDEN is a future-ready content delivery network (CDN) of efficiently interconnected peer-to-peer non-fungible token (NFT) nodes. Guided by AI algorithms, these NFT nodes streamline the delivery of data downloads by creating localized points of presence at the network edge that enable game publishers to host and serve content to their customer base.
The CEDEN Network is designed to empower the open source AI and network communities to achieve a truly decentralized delivery environment for the new era of entertainment that belongs to everyone, not just the monolithic corporations controlling the origin servers.
CEDEN eliminates monstrous centralized data centers.
CEDEN eliminates hardware manufacturing.
CEDEN allows interactive entertainment to transcend the tech limitations that prevent the future.
The EDEN Engine
Envision a Game of Thrones style battle charge, with a diverse cast of thousands forging forward on foot and horseback as dragons fly overhead spewing fireballs…
Full cinematic engagement can now be delivered via the EDEN Engine which allows for an unprecedented number of assets to exist concurrently and interact with one another.
EDEN is our open source game development engine, delivering two key components to the CEDEN proposition. Firstly, it is elegantly moddable to serve the interests and needs of gamers, with the ability for gamers to directly access the engine and all its capabilities for customisation.
Secondly, EDEN-powered games will serve as genre templates. For example, if a gamer has downloaded a racing game, he or she can access the engine to create their own unique racing game, using the original as a template.
The EDEN technological innovation drastically reduces game development time, increases concurrent development (where designers, animators and artists can work together in real time), and enables the maximization of system resources.

Keystone NFT Nodes
The CEDEN Keystone collection forms the foundation of the CEDEN NFT node network.
As the demand for processing power grows to meet the needs of the metaverse, the need for a more sustainable network alternative grows.
CEDEN’s peer-to-peer NFT nodes offer a more efficient, trustless, and sustainable approach to content delivery that utilizes localized points of presence, caching closer to the end-user while cutting down on the environmental footprints of centralized data centers.
The CEDEN Network uses an architecture based upon decentralized GPU power, allowing for a CDN that offers flexibility for metaverse level applications, such as interactive entertainment, and powerful AIs that run on these GPUs.
Keystone Nodes earn 10% of all block and network rewards while they are running the required minimum hardware and software.
The CEDEN Keystone NFT collection will be minted via a free mint for all CEDEN Mint Pass holders.
The CEDEN utility token ($CDN) serves as a proof of stake (PoS) mechanism for node operators who wish to service network content delivery needs and earn rewards.
Node operators stake a pre-defined total of $CDN tokens in order to mint a production NFT with a unique ID. Production NFTs grant the user the privilege to run the required hardware and software to earn block rewards and workload revenues.
NFT Node operators provide a peer-to-peer edge of network points of presence. These are used for content delivery, caching and data storage, handle routing, data service, and relay work. In exchange, node operators receive a share of the block rewards and the contract rate revenue generated by the CDN services their nodes perform.
Ten percent of the $CDN supply is issued via a daily airdrop to all CEDEN Keystone NFT nodes. This will begin at network launch and continue for four years.
Ninety percent of the $CDN supply will be released via block rewards distributed to active nodes in the network. 10% is shared by active Keystone NFTs. 90% is shared by active production NFTs.
