What is Gridcoin and BOINC?

BOINC stands for Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing and was developed in 2002. It's serves as a platform for projects to distribute and collect small work units that computers run. The kind of work can vary greatly.

Learn more about BOINC in the BOINC section.

Gridcoin is a Proof-of-Stake v2 cryptocurrency, initially released in 2014. It also adds a second layer of rewards for work done on the BOINC platform for a pre-defined list of validated projects. Users gain their rewards when staking new blocks to the network.

More in-detail description of the mechanism can be found on, Gridcoin Whitepaper, Gridcoin Staking Bluepaper
Here are the latest news and updates from various sources within the gridcoin space. This includes updates from the explorer and whitelisted BOINC projects. You can browser all the available items on the News section as well as filter based on your preferences.
