Is there a decentralized version of Cloudflare Workers?

Is there a decentralized version of Cloudflare Workers or some comparable service like AWS Lambda functions or GCP Cloud Functions? I would love a blockchain based, or just a decentralized version of a Cloudflare Worker that could run functions called by a static website.
Yes, there are decentralized alternatives to Cloudflare Workers and serverless computing services like AWS Lambda or Google Cloud Functions. One such alternative is called "serverless computing on blockchain," which allows developers to deploy and execute functions on decentralized networks such as Ethereum. Examples of blockchain-based serverless computing platforms include NuCypher, Ankr, and Akash.
Another option is using decentralized storage and content delivery networks (CDNs), such as IPFS and Swarm, to host and serve static websites. These networks can provide a decentralized and censorship-resistant infrastructure for hosting and serving static websites without relying on centralized services.
In summary, there are decentralized alternatives to Cloudflare Workers and serverless computing services that leverage blockchain and other decentralized technologies to provide a similar functionality.
Thanks for the feedback! I've played around with NuCypher and Akash. They are definitely interesting. I've also worked with IPFS. Swarm and Ankr are new to me though so I will look into this. Thanks
