Get Some Gridcoin

  • In Gridcoin's Proof-of-Stake (PoS) system, BOINC rewards are given when users stake, along with an additional 10 GRC.
  • To stake and earn your BOINC rewards, a balance of GRC is required.
    • For monthly staking, a balance of 5000 GRC is recommended.
    • The rate you are rewarded for your BOINC work is the rate you mint PoS blocks because BOINC rewards are layered on top of these blocks.
    • Note: Your balance does not affect the amount of the payout, only how frequent. You also need to wait around 16 hours before any coins received are able to stake.

Ways to Get Gridcoin
