Gridcoin (Ticker: GRC) is a decentralized, open source math-based digital asset (cryptocurrency), kind of like Bitcoin, but also very different. Gridcoin was the first digital currency that delivered a working algorithm that equally rewards BOINC (Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing) scientific work.
Gridcoin came into existence in 2013. Since then, team Gridcoin has become the top Boinc team in the entire world, doing close to 200,000,000 credits in daily scientific work, spread out over 30+ Boinc projects:
How does Gridcoin actually work?

What is the purpose of this campaign?
The purpose of this Thunderclap campaign is to raise awareness about BOINC scientific computing and digital currencies like Gridcoin, which gives volunteers and newcomers a monetary incentive to contribute to science with hardware at their disposal.
Boinc computing uses up sizable amounts of electricity on a monthly basis and generous volunteers across the world usually pay for this cost from their own pockets. Gridcoin provides a way for Boinc volunteers to recoup their monthly power costs and be part of a growing and exciting digital economy.
You can join the Gridcoin Thunderclap campaign with your Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr account. The campaign needs to gather 100 supporters by September 24, which is 12 days away. Join today and let the world know about the importance of volunteer scientific computing and digital currencies like Gridcoin that support it.
