WCG is also one of the whitelisted Gridcoin projects and members who are crunching this project have now an attractive opportunity to earn another coin while crunching for Gridcoin. You can earn $1.00 (in Bytes) for every 150,000 points generated. This is obviously a different metric than the reward allocation based on RAC and magnitude for Gridcoin.
It takes two steps to start receiving Byteball:
- Install the Byteball wallet
- Establish the link between the wallet and your WCG account using the “World Community Grid linking bot”, which you can find in the Bot Store in your wallet
Further setup information can be found here.
When you are an existing WCG contributor, there is a start-up bonus available where you will receive a one of reward depending on the points generated so far. The following distribution will be applied:
- $0.20 for 100,000 to 1,000,000 points
- $3.00 for 1,000,000 to 10,000,000 points
- $40.00 for 10,000,000 to 100,000,000 points
- $150.00 over 100,000,000 points
@steemmillionaire has already confirmed in the comments section below that the start-up bonus is really awarded. Hopefully more people will enjoy this extra benefit.
So after having received your Byteballs, you could of course sell them again on the Exchange for Gridcoins to further support this fantastic coin!
