Contributors to protein folding and COVID-19 studies can now earn free cryptocurrencies

One step in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic is to study the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the general protein folding,media neowin reported. To that end, we’ve seen initiatives that allow people to contribute extra computing power to projects such as Folding@home, Rosetta@home, and IBM World Community Grid.

To further stimulate the involvement of these projects, CPUcoin, which provides a decentralized infrastructure-as-a-service solution, announced a partnership with BOINC at the University of California, Berkeley. BOINC is an open source software platform that uses voluntary resources to calculate, providing cryptocurrencies for protein folding and COVID-19 research for volunteers who share their computing power.

Especially those who contribute to Rosetta@home projects or IBM World Community Grid can start automatically earning cryptocurrencies once the system is in place. The move follows the earlier integration of CPUcoin with the BOINC system at the University of California, Berkeley.

TO GET STARTED, PEOPLE FIRST NEED TO DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL CPUCOIN’S CGN MINER AND BOINC. Then, you need to choose from two COVID-19 research projects that are supported under venture capital – Rosetta@home or IBM Community World Grid. When a user supports a project, CGN Miner is automatically detected and additionally rewarded with the user CPUcoin every day. Other digital assets, including Teda (USDT), Bitcoin (BTC) and ETH, can then be traded on the ProBit exchange with CPUcoin.
