GRIDCOIN is based on the BOINC platform which was used for decoding transmitted signals from seti. For those who contribute computing power to the research done on this project, they will earn the GRC token. Users get paid based on the degree of research carried out on the platform, which led to the consensus algorithm "proof of research." The research ranges from medical drug discovery, studying space signals, and protein structures.
