we are 25 times or so as fast as folding@home. By far the most powerful distributed computing network there is. Maybe we should claim the world record.

edit (2012-01-13): link updated:

add your comment that the records as stated is wrong and that bitcoin is faster!

http://guinnessworldrecords.com/search/Details/Most-powerful-distributedcomputing-network/65883.htm

http://bitcoinwatch.com says we are at: 149796 tera flop/s (149 Peta flop/s?) not at 25 petaflop/s as you claim.

EDIT:

Iam correct on this right?
Damn thats just so much faster then the fastest super computer out there (K-computer - 8.1 Petaflop/s)

Instead of doubting just go and read

FAQ #12
Quote
How much do I have to pay when I make my record attempt?

Generally, nothing! The only time Guinness World Records might expect payment is if you need to use our Fast Track service – and if members of our staff have, by arrangement, attended your event.

Also, while all successful record breakers receive, free of charge, a certificate recognizing their achievement, we do make a charge for any additional copies if they're requested.

I know a lawyer in New York who's probably already filed for the record.  Undecided

This would give Bitcoin some credibility in the public's eyes. Definitely a worthwhile endeavor.

Guiness (beer) does not travel. You cannot pass a judgement until you tried it in Dublin.


As for the record claim, it is an awesome idea and it must be done. Free good publicity is even better than free bad publicity.
