About us

GNY was born in 2015 to answer a specific question: how can the vast amounts of digital data left behind by people be organised and analysed to provide business, marketing, and social impact solutions that are predictive, adaptive, and responsive?

GNY’s patented machine learning identifies repeatable patterns, and learning components that constantly adapt to our ever changing human behaviour. It does this by responding to millions of independent variable features while using hundreds of machine learning algorithms in parallel, in order to predict defined business values.

Offering this service as a consulting service through the traditional centralized model limited the number of customers we could reach because this kind of consulting is expensive. So we decided to challenge this concept by delivering our service in a brand new way.

What if we decentralised our machine learning platform on the blockchain so anyone could access it?

We followed that idea and built our own native blockchain to host our machine learning system.

As the system developed it became clear to us that the GNY blockchain we were creating was extremely versatile. It offered benefits far more wide-ranging than just decentralised machine learning alone; and it offered them to a much wider base of developers and enterprises.

We decided to make it so that anyone could access GNY’s powerful set of tools to launch and host projects from conception to implementation in the most developer friendly environment built around artificial intelligence.

GNY Mainnet, launched in Spring of 2021, brought the community a powerful tool that can be used by anyone who needs a predictive platform for their business. Later in 2021 we will start opening access to GNYDataplace, which will transform how business view the value of their existing datasets, and think about collaborating with others to create value through data and decentralized ML.

Whether you are adding our machine learning to an existing chain, or building a brand new application as a sidechain to GNYMainnet, GNY can help unlock the hidden value in your data.

Magic Wish Technology Grant

GNY awards the Magic Wish Technology Grant bi-annually to distinguished charitable partners with a committed track record of using data to advance their missions. Magic Wish grantees will work with our engineers to build a custom DApp powered by GNY to solve for their most pressing and complex data problems and enjoy a supply of GNY tokens for the duration of their program. 

Every 2 years a number of organizations will be selected for the grant, and all eligible organizations are encouraged to apply. Magic Wish Grants are best for organizations already deeply involved with data, analytics, and technology.

Magic Wish grantees receive:

– A dedicated GNY liaison to analyze and refine their data challenges, facilitate construction a custom GNY engine to attack the problem and two years of technical support to refine the application

– An annual supply of GNY tokens to power their DApp as long as the Magic Wish charitable requirements continue to be met.

Latest Social Impact Partner

GNY is proud to announce that the latest recipient of its Magic Wish Technology Grant is Child Rescue Coalition. The non-profit rescues children from sexual abuse by building technology, free of charge, for law enforcement to track, arrest, and prosecute child predators.

To date, Child Rescue Coalition technology is directly responsible for the arrest of over 10,500 predators and the rescue of over 2,400 child victims. Law enforcement officers in all 50 US states and 84 countries across the globe use Child Rescue Coalition’s proprietary, one-of-a-kind technology.

Child Rescue Coalition is excited to partner with GNY to enhance the robust platform on which tens of thousands of law enforcement officers rely. CRC extensively utilizes blockchain, and the partnership with GNY will greatly enhance the product offerings, leading to the increased rescue of victimized children and the furthering of the mission of Protecting Innocence Through Technology.

​Research shows that as many as 85% of online offenders are already hands-on offenders of children in real life. The entire GNY team is committed to working with Child Rescue to see how our machine learning technology can help them provide new and improved tools for law enforcement.
