Rewarding Volunteer Distributed Computing

What is Gridcoin?

Gridcoin is an open source cryptocurrency (Ticker: GRC) which securely rewards volunteer computing performed on the BOINC platform.

What is BOINC?

BOINC is an open source volunteer computing grid which combines the processing power of individual users for the purposes of scientific research. It is free to use and already home to 30+ projects spanning a range of scientific disciplines. Examples include protein structure prediction (Rosetta@home), mapping the Milky Way galaxy (Milkyway@home), searching for record prime numbers (Primegrid), and tackling problems in public health and clean energy (World Community Grid).

How can I participate?

Individuals: Join BOINC and start earning Gridcoin for your contributions! See the 'Guides' section for details.

Researchers and institutions: Tap into the spare processing power of tens of thousands of volunteers, and create your own BOINC project for free! In turn, the Gridcoin network can reward your project's userbase to encourage participation and improve user retention.
