Project details

"Gridcoin is an open source cryptocurrency which securely rewards volunteer computing performed on the BOINC platform.
BOINC is an open source volunteer computing grid which combines the processing power of individual users for the purposes of scientific research. It is free to use and already home to 30+ projects spanning a range of scientific disciplines. Examples include protein structure prediction (Rosetta@home), mapping the Milky Way galaxy (Milkyway@home), and tackling problems in public health and clean energy (World Community Grid)."

Gridcoin (an open-source blockchain) is an exciting project which mints and distributes cryptocurrency to reward users who 'donate' their unused processing resources towards data-driven research and scientific discovery. The project is currently secured through a proof-of stake protocol. I love the idea to make use of something that would normally be 'wasted', like not throwing away perfectly good food but instead creating a good leftover lunch!

Links related to the project





So far I've translated a bit more than 1000 words out of the 2700 total. It will be a short but sweet project to work on: the information in the whitepaper is precise and clear, which makes it fun to read and translate. I'll be done before the end of this week and probably start contributing some of my own computational resources to the project myself!

Hi @altrosa!

Thank you for your contribution to the Gridcoin Whitepaper Open Source project for DaVinci and Utopian!

This was your first translation for the project, which is only 2700 words.
So with that in mind, we'll have worked through this project by the end of the week, making the Dutch translation the second after the Greek team.
I love working on new 'fresh' projects, and I can see that you do too. There is also a learning curve in this (as with most projects) and I agree: it's great to see projects like this one come up on the blockchain and I sure hope we'll hear a lot more from them.

As for your translation: there are really no comments, other than: Well done!

Your contribution has been evaluated according to Utopian policies and guidelines, as well as a predefined set of questions pertaining to the category.
