Not interested in earning BOINC rewards?
Switch to the Non-Cruncher guide. You do not need to install or run BOINC in order to use GRC as a cryptocurrency.
In order to earn Gridcoin, you need to crunch one or more whitelisted BOINC projects. You must install the BOINC client. A video version of this guide is available.
