Whitelist justification

The whitelist was created to increase security and to focus user's resources on active projects.

Please note:

You will only be rewarded Gridcoin for whitelisted BOINC projects.

Any BOINC work done outside of the whitelisted BOINC projects will not be rewarded Gridcoin.

Want a project whitelisted? Create a thread about it!

You can check whitelisted project details on Gridcoinstats.

The whitelist is verifiable within the Windows client (coming to Linux soon).

Greylist

When projects are running out of work or are offline for temporary maintenance they are placed on the Greylist. These projects will not reward Gridcoin until they meet the requirements to be placed back on the whitelist again. Please see various social media (Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, Slack) for notices about greylisted projects.

Please see The official Greylist website for daily updates on which projects are added and removed from the Greylist.

This document outlines the Greylist procedure for all whitelisted projects.

Project Goal Sponsor CPU GPU Team Stats
Citizen Science Grid Umbrella project for DNA@Home, SubsSet Sum@Home, and Wildlife@Home. University of North Dakota
Cosmology@Home Darkmatter/Universe Model Research Department of Astronomy at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
LHC@Home Accelerator Physics CERN
NFS@Home Lattice sieving step in Number Field Sieve factorization of large integers. Many public key algorithms, including the RSA algorithm, rely on the fact that the publicly available modulus cannot be factored. If it is factored, the private key can be easily calculated. California State University Fullerton
NumberFields@home Research in number theory. Number theorists can mine the data for interesting patterns to help them formulate conjectures about number fields. Arizona State University, school of Mathematics
ODLK1 OLDK is building a database of canonical forms of diagonal Latin squares of the 10th order
Rosetta@Home Protein structure prediction that may ultimately lead to finding cures for some major human diseases. University of Washington
SRBase Attempting to solve Sierpinski / Riesel Bases up to 1030. The project is in collaboration with the Mersenne CRUS project.
TN-Grid The gene@home project is an implementation of the PC-IM algorithm, whose purpose is to expand Gene Regulatory Networks (GRN). Each network is a graph that specifies the causal relationships inside this set of genes, and helps in studying the gene expression phenomenon: the process through which the DNA is transcribed into RNA and the RNA translated into proteins. National Research Council of Italy (CNR)
VGTU Distributed computing platform for scientists of Vilnius Gediminas Technical University (VGTU). Vilnius Gediminas Technical University
Universe@home Physics and Astronomy University of Warsaw
World Community Grid FightAIDS@home, Smash Childhood Cancer, fight Tuberculosis, research better materials for solar panels. Sponsored by the IBM responsibility initiative
YAFU Factorize numbers of 70-130 digit length which are needed to bring Aliquot Sequences to a size of 130. Private
yoyo@home Brings existing distributed computing projects to the BOINC world using the BOINC Wrapper technology Supported by Rechenkraft.net e.V. , accept private Donations, also accept Bitcoin
Amicable Numbers Amicable Numbers is an independent research project that uses Internet-connected computers to find new amicable pairs. Currently searching the 10^20 range. Private
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. Charles University in Prague
Collatz Conjecture Attempting to disprove the Collatz Conjecture. Private
Einstein@home Search for spinning neutron (pulsars) stars using data from the LIGO gravitational-wave detectors, the Arecibo radio telescope, and the Fermi gamma-ray satellite Univ. of Wisconsin - Milwaukee, Max Planck Institute
Enigma@Home The M4 Project is an effort to break 3 original Enigma messages with the help of distributed computing. The signals were intercepted in the North Atlantic in 1942 and are believed to be unbroken. Private
GPUgrid Full-atom molecular simulations of proteins Private Sponsors, accept donations in Bitcoin
Milkyway@home Creation of a 3D map of the Milky Way galaxy using data gathered by the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. This project enables research in both astroinformatics and computer science. Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
