Gridcoin's Whitelist

Whitelist justification
  • The whitelist was created to increase security and to focus user's resources on active projects.
  • Without a whitelist, there was the potential for malicious BOINC projects being created for users to solomine for GRC, or potentially to infect gridcoin users with malware.
Whitelist discussion/scrutiny
Please note:
  • You will only be rewarded for whitelisted BOINC projects.
  • Any BOINC work done outside of the whitelisted BOINC projects will not be rewarded.

BOINC Project Hardware Breakdown

Nvidia GPU only
Project Goal Compatibility Quick Links
GPUgrid Full-atom molecular simulations of proteins Windows linux virtualbox
Asteroids@home Asteroid research - it uses photometric measurements of asteroids observed by professional big all-sky surveys as well as 'backyard' astronomers. The data is processed using the lightcurve inversion method and a 3D shape model of an asteroid together with the rotation period and the direction of the spin axis are derived. Windows linux osx freebsd
Combined AMD, Nvidia & Intel GPU
