Gridcoin (GRC)

533 satoshi
(Source: Poloniex, 6 minutes ago)

Gridcoin (GRC) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Litecoin in 2013. Originally it was a proof-of-stake currency with scrypt as its hashing algorithm, but the original client is now being discontinued in favour of a new client called "Gridcoin Research", launched in October 2014. The most distinguishing feature this cryptocurrency is a consensus mechanism called "Proof of Research" which is able to cryptographically verify BOINC (Berkley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing) computing tasks and which rewards the client with a cryptographic token for completing the task. BOINC currently hosts a series of scientific projects including cancer research, drug candidate testing, high-energy physics, space mapping and disease control. Original announcement.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 79 (4.2), 6 months: 90 (3.7), 3 months: 85 (4.3), 4 weeks: 72 (3.0), 1 week: 73 (2.7)
