Located in Lyon, France, iExec is a blockchain-based project (running on ) that provides cloud computing services comparable to those of Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure but in a more decentralized manner. The main services of iExec allow users to have on-demand access to computing power, datasets, and applications over a decentralized network. This network is furnished by resource providers who are incentivized with tokenized rewards. [4]

"iExec is the first blockchain based fully distributed cloud platform. It changes the way we do cloud computing a lot. We are streamlining the blockchain and in particular on the Ethereum smart contract technology to create a sort of decentralized market place where everyone can monetize their servers, their applications and their data sets" - Gilles Fedak[5]

iExec's products include the Marketplace, RLC token, Oracle factory, Confidential computing, etc.

RLC Token

The iExec RLC token is an  token that serves as the platform’s primary medium of exchange. All transactions that occur on iExec’s decentralized cloud marketplaces are settled in RLC tokens, and workers need to  RLC tokens as security deposits to be eligible to execute computation tasks. [6]

RLC token has a total capped supply of 87 Million. On April 19, 2017, iExec launched its token sale through an and raised more than $12 Million in exchange for 86,999,784 RLC (69%). [6]
