What is Gridcoin?

Gridcoin is a multi-incentive permissionless blockchain initiated in 2013. It mints and distributes cryptocurrency in relation to the processing power a network participant directs toward data-driven analysis and scientific discovery, as well as through a proof-of-stake reward mechanism. The Gridcoin blockchain monitors processing contributions to the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Networked Computing (BOINC). BOINC hosts major institutional computing projects such as IBM’s World Community Grid, SETI, and CERN, alongside projects developed by students, enthusiasts, mathematicians, researchers, and citizen scientists. Access to Gridcoin's computation resources is free, while computation contributors are incentivized with cryptocurrency minted by the Gridcoin protocol.
