Reward for computational time
Gridcoin is a cryptocurrency that rewards volunteers for participating in the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) network. BOINC is a distributed computing platform that allows users to contribute their computing resources to scientific research projects. The Gridcoin network rewards users for their contribution to these research projects by distributing a supply of 28000 GRC (Gridcoin) every day. These rewards are distributed every 24 hours, when the network generates a "superblock".
This system is called a "magnitude economics". The Gridcoin network has a total magnitude of 115000, which is evenly distributed across all whitelisted projects. Each project is given the same amount of magnitude to distribute among its participants. This system encourages users to seek out projects with fewer contributors, ensuring that lesser-known projects have access to significant computing resources.
Users interested in supporting specific BOINC project can also reward other users for their computational time by distributing GRC using the "rainbymagnitude" feature. This allows users to send GRC to other users in proportion to their magnitude on a particular project.
All whitelisted projects can be displayed by "listprojects" command.
Einstein@Home is searching for weak astrophysical signals from spinning neutron stars (often called pulsars) using data from the LIGO gravitational-wave detectors, the MeerKAT radio telescope, the Fermi gamma-ray satellite, as well as archival data from the Arecibo radio telescope. Volunteers have already discovered about fifty new neutron stars. One of the long-term goals is to make the first direct detections of gravitational-wave emission from spinning neutron stars.

NFS@Home is a research project to do the lattice lattice sieving step in the Number Field Sieve factorization of large integers. Integer factorization is interesting from both mathematical and practical perspectives. Practically, many public key algorithms, including the RSA algorithm, rely on the fact that the publicly available modulus cannot be factored. If it is factored, the private key can be easily calculated. Until quite recently, RSA-512, which uses a 512-bit modulus (155 digits), was commonly used but can now be easily broken.

TN-Grid is a platform to do research in various scientific projects based at the Research Area of Trento of the National Research Council of Italy and currently hosted by the University of Trento. One of the main goals is investigation in bioinformatics - the causal relationship among genes. Eventually, the result of this research could contribute to the development of medical science.

Universe@home is a scientific research project that performs simulations of the evolution of stars and galaxies. The project is developed and run by a Polish higher education institution and uses advanced parallel computing methods to study contemporary scientific problems. One of the main goals is reproducing the evolution of stellar populations as whole galaxies consisting of billions of stars. By performing simulations on such a large scale, scientists can compare the results with all available observational data, which is far more comprehensive than studying a single system. This method, called population synthesis, allows scientists to not only understand the evolution of stellar populations, but also to study their multiplicity and statistics.
