Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Within the BOINC platform for volunteer computing, the BOINC Credit System helps volunteers keep track of how much CPU time they have donated to various distributed computing projects. The credit system is designed to avoid cheating by validating results before granting credit on projects. This ensures users are returning accurate results for both scientific and statistical reasons. Online distributed computing relies heavily, if not completely, on volunteer computers. For this reason, projects such as SETI@home and other BOINC projects depend on a complicated balance among long-term users and the cycle of new users and retiring users.show more
