Golem Summary and Utility

Golem is a flexible, open-source network for peer-to-peer (P2P) sharing of digital resources including idle computing power. Examples of projects being built on the network’s modular architecture include machine learning, data analytics, video transcoding services, CAD simulators, chemistry simulations, and image and video rendering.

Golem was founded in 2016 by Julian Zawistowski, Andrzej Regulski, Piotr Janiuk and Aleksandra Skrzypczak. In November 2016, it was one of the first blockchain projects to raise money from crowdfunding to build the network. In 2018, the initial implementation of the protocol, Brass Golem, was one of the first applications launched on Ethereum’s live network, or mainnet.

The current version of the Golem platform, with a new architecture, was launched in 2020, and its former native token, GNT, began its gradual migration to the GLM token in November 2020. GLM has the same maximum supply of one billion tokens, all of which are in circulation, giving it a current market capitalisation of $420m.

Golem has migrated the token to the ERC-20 format, which requires ERC-20 tokens for the Ethereum Layer 2 transaction framework. When the GNT token launched in 2016, ERC-20 was not widely adopted. It has since become the standard for applications across Layer 2, decentralised finance (DeFi) and decentralised exchanges (DEXs). Golem was one of the first networks to implement Layer 2 payments.

In September 2021, Golem launched Thorg, a mining application featuring Layer 2 payment built on the Polygon network. On 8 December, Golem released Beta IV, with support for its new Polygon mainnet payment driver.

There are several advantages to Polygon over ZkSync, the previous payment driver, the announcement noted. On ZkSync, fees for transferring GLM are around one GLM per transaction, whereas on Polygon, transaction fees are 100-200 times lower, depending on the gas price. Polygon transactions are finalised after 128 blocks, or around five minutes, while blocks on ZkSync can often remain pending for hours. The cheapest off-boarding on ZkSync involves converting GLM to USDC, but USDC is supported on Binance and via direct deposit from Polygon, without having to first bridge to Ethereum.

Token Trading History

The golem token started trading in November 2016 at $0.01505 and spiked to $0.7258 in June 2017. The price reached its all-time high of $1.09 in January 2018, joining in the broader cryptocurrency market rally, then retreating as the market crashed in April 2018 to $0.1937. The price spiked again to $0.9112 in May 2018, and subsequently fell back to around $0.10 until the end of 2020.

As the markets rallied again in early 2021, the GLM price spiked to $0.6901 at the end of March. When the markets collapsed in May, the GLM price dropped back and bottomed out at $0.1665 on 22 June. The price peaked again at $0.9336 on 28 November as Layer 2 tokens in particular staged strong rallies, but it was again unable to hold on to the gains and ended 2021 at $0.4558. The coin has largely traded between $0.40 and $0.50 so far in January.

It’s important to keep in mind that cryptocurrency markets remain extremely volatile, making it difficult to accurately predict what a coin’s price will be in a few hours, and even harder to give long-term estimates. As such, analysts and algorithm-based forecasters can and do get their predictions wrong.

It’s recommended that you always do your own research, and consider the latest market trends, golem news, technical and fundamental analysis, and expert opinion before making any investment decision. Keep in mind that past performance is no guarantee of future returns. And never invest more than you can afford to lose.

Forecasters can and do get their predictions wrong. You should do your own research to make informed trading decisions. Keep in mind that past performance is no guarantee of future returns.
