std::future::share

From cppreference.com
< cpp‎ | thread‎ | future
std::shared_future<T> share();

Transfers the shared state of *this, if any, to a std::shared_future object. Multiple std::shared_future objects may reference the same shared state, which is not possible with std::future.

After calling share on a std::future, valid() == false.
