Wish you could mine Tron Weekly token? That’s possible, already, and comes with a good cause. Last March 21st, Tron Weekly Journal officially launched its Mining program. It is a weekly activity where the payout is given every Thursday. In this post, we’ll provide you with details of this awesomely ‘rewarding’ crypto mining program.
Folding@Home is a distributed computing project which is being operated in Pande Laboratory at Stanford University. Its main purpose is to study the causes of protein misfolding which results in several diseases including but not limited to Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and Huntington’s disease, and cancer.
The project uses idle processing resources of the computers being used by the volunteers to simulate protein folding and to examine why it misfolds.
They are the pioneers in using graphics processing units (GPU), Message Passing Interface (used for computing on multi-core processors), Sony Xperia smartphones, and PlayStation 3s for distributed computing and scientific research. In 2007, Guinness World Records recognized Folding@Home as the most powerful distributed computing network, with a computing power of 135 petaFLOPS (135 quadrillion floating point operations per second), as of 2018.
The Tron Weekly Mining Program
Tron Weekly Journal joined thousand of teams volunteering on the cause of finding cures and in improving drug design to several illnesses. We at TronWeekly encourage our users to join and share their computer’s computing power to the research and in return, give rewards to the participants as per certain terms. Hence the term “mining”.
The mining has a weekly cycle and it resets every Thursday at 1 PM SGT (UTC+8). After that, the payout rewards for each participant get calculated and sent within 1 hour. The rewards pool starts in a specific amount and it increases once we reached milestones per stage. We are currently in the third stage of mining.
Also, the participants who will be in Top 2 for two consecutive weeks will be eligible for a surprise reward. Moreover, there will be surprise rewards to be added to the reward pool once we cross every million points.
How to Mine and What’s in it For You
To Mine Tron Weekly, you just need to go to their downloads page and pick what’s applicable to you. The folding software, FAHClient, is available for Windows (64-bit and 32-bit), for MacOS (10.6 and up), and for Linux (32-bit and 64-bit). Alternatively, you can also mine using your Google Chrome browser. You just need to go to this link to start. Once you are ready, you just need to input your “Identity” as your wallet address and the “team” as 234953 and then click on start.
Joining the mining program will not only make you eligible to receive Tron Weekly based on your weekly points but also by running the folding software, you are contributing to a noble cause of computing research and finding cures to the illnesses which are affecting millions of people around the world.
Based on a BrainTest.com, there are approximately 46.8 million people having Alzheimer’s disease alone. So by sharing your idle computing resources to the network of Folding@Home simulation, you are getting involved and playing a big part in developing the drug for treating these degenerative diseases.
