Do you sleep? Have a laptop or desktop that sits idle during those eight hours? Need an extra $20 a month? If so, startup CPUsage has a proposition that you should hear. The eight-month-old startup wants to pay folks so it can harness their idle compute time to sell to corporations. CEO and co-founder Jeff Martens estimates an average user donating four hours of compute time every day could score about $10 a month.

May be worth it for people with idle hardware, especially if you don't have the best mining cards.

ONLY if you have free electricity. An idle laptop use a lot less power than a 100% usage laptop.

Finally, a competitor to http://parabon.com/ which accommodates individuals. I've been waiting for this for years. (Not that I'm sure I'll actually do anything with it now.)

One has to see waht they pay. Has to be worth it after lets say 15 US cents power / 10 euro cents. Yes, many people pay less, but many also more.
