Distribution through World Community Grid

One of the longest running distribution methods is by donating computing power to the World Community Grid.

World Community Grid is an IBM sponsored philanthropic initiative running since 2004. WCG allows one to use idle time of one's computer to help scientists solve the world’s biggest problems in health and sustainability.

New users who join the Obyte WCG distribution are rewarded in Bytes for their previously accumulated points. Further contributions are rewarded with non-transferrable "WCG Points" tokens to recognize their contribution.

Obyte team on WCG is one of the top contributors by results, points, and total run time, and has contributed over 29,000 years of run time since the program started. We have participated in multiple challenges and won some of them, e.g. THOR Challenge 2019.
