Fold at home for a good cause and earn 1337 coins weekly
1337 folding is a charitable initiative of the 1337 Foundation to support Stanford’s Folding@Home. Folding@Home is a distributed computing system that helps Stanford University scientists studying Alzheimer's, Huntington's, Parkinson's, and many cancers by simply running a piece of software on your computer. More than a 100K people are donating more than 20K teraflops of computing power. Honorary points are awarded by Standford for the computing work preformed and users can compete in teams for most points. For greater community mobilization and our bid for a greater number of points, the foundation will reward members with 1337 coins in the bid to help researchers find cures for diseases.
To facilitate 1337’s community, we have created an automated weekly payout system to our team that pays contributors with the funds donated to the 1337 Foundation. Fold for a good cause and earn some 1337 coins for your support towards team efforts. All you need is to register with a valid 1337 wallet address as your folding user name, the automated system will take care of the rest. It takes into account totally team points, with payout split among folding team’s contributors proportionally. This week's reward have been deposited and a larger fund thanks to generous donations has been collected. We aim to regularly add portions to the weekly payout.

It's as easy as opening your browser. Through browser folding you can assist with smaller tasks. However, for larger tasks you can install the Folding@Home client. Once your machine completes a folding work unit, Stanford will reward you with points. Whichever option you take, configure it with your 1337 wallet address in the "Folding as" field and 233050 in "team id" field. The bigger the task, the more points you get, and the larger your payout in 1337. At the end of every week, the automated system will compare your points to the team total and send your share to your 1337 wallet!
