I will be voting to whitelist this project.

The project currently does not have a lot of work units available, however they have a lot of potential (multiple crypto assets, the project administrators have been communicating directly with the Gridcoin community, etc).

Their cryptocointalk project thread is worth a read!

I think we should whitelist [email protected] Their planned token will bring some attention to BOINC from the cryptocommunity and such attention will most likely be benefitial to Gridcoin as well.


I agree, they've talked about creating two tokens (at one point mentioning ethereum, but there's a lot of options out there!).

They spoke of a potential ICO and using a portion of raised funds to rain GRC onto their users.

I look forwards to [email protected]'s further developments.

Project has been voted into the whitelist. Still no workunits available or even pending. No test WUs. SSL is not working in the scheduler. This is a mess.

I do not want to get into a debate, but there is no SSL there ;)

The DrugDiscovery admin will have to fulfill the whitelist criteria as all other BOINC projects before them.
If I remember correct, the SSL are not a MUST criteria, but if they want to protect their users, they should implement it.
I have asked the admin the question:

Also, we as users decide where we crunch. We can also weigh in, by NOT crunching...

Just as info:
the other BOINC project that is currently voted on (TN-Grid) has mostly SSL ready:


good to hear !
