Do your part for Science/Maths and earn Crypto (Gridcoins)!

By beachbummer | CryptoBeach | 19 Aug 2019

Perhaps you have felt that the amount of electricity going into BTC mining was a waste since it was just being used for calculating whether a cryptographic puzzle could be solved?

What if that computing power could be contributed towards the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence? Or a cure for AIDS, cancer or Zika? If Maths is more up your alley, then what about giving your computing power towards Amicable Numbers or the Collatz Conjecture?

Do your part to Compute for Good, and at the same time, you can also earn coins from a well established cryptocurrency! Be part of a grid computing network that has the computing power to theoretically rank number 5 amongst the supercomputers.

If that has piqued your interest, you should join a computing pool so it will be easier to receive your rewards, which comes in the form of Gridcoins -- a coin that has been around since 2013.

At time of writing, your computing rewards are only received once you have successfully staked your coins. If you are just starting out, you will not have any coins, so you will need to be part of a pool to stake.

For more details, you can go the official Gridcoin page for clear instructions on how to setup your PC to join a computing pool to support the movement to Compute for Good!
