(Golem: a few months ago, Phillip, one of our longest standing community members helping out with tech support - reached us out as he had been building a web gateway for people to pay with their credit cards to submit tasks to the network. Now Phillip takes the charge and tells us about his project)
My name is Phillip, and I’m currently 18 years old. I have always had a deep passion for technology and I love to build stuff myself and feel ‘independent’.

As mentioned before, I'm a huge technology nerd and I’ve been looking at Golem since 2017 and always been a fan.What is GolemGrid?
GolemGrid is a web gateway built on top of the Golem Network. The final aim is to integrate every possible use case integrated into Golem and create a simple and easy-to-understand interface.How do you use it?
To use GolemGrid you have to create an account. Once you log in you’ll be greeted by the Dashboard. This is where your tasks will show up. In the sidebar, you’ll find the Blender rendering option. That’s where you submit your task for computation. This page contains a list of settings you can choose from.
When you submit your task, you will be redirected to the Stripe payment page to pay for your computation. Once it has been confirmed (should happen instantly), then your task will start computing and appear on the Dashboard with ...
