Poor impulse control.

No, there's no need for a blockchain if you're not doing crypto. Just work received and work submitted. Is that what you meant?

I was thinking a worker/server system, or perhaps a p2p system?

workers download a file that contains information about the job at hand, after multiple jobs of the same kind (eg, 10 md5 hashes) the work would begin.

Unless you were planning on only doing the same work every time (eg rainbow table generation) then you'd need a new client or at least a new module to produce the work to send back. Like doing work for seti@home or folding at home.

Why the 10 MD5 hashes at the start?

If you were to bruteforce a single MD5 hash, it would take x time to go through all combinations up to 8 characters.
If you were to bruteforce two MD5 hashes, it would still take x time to go through all combinations up to 8 characters.


If two+ hashes/whatever? needs to be cracked, do them at once and it will take half as long.

I guess you can get where I am going with this. Pay more if you want it done instantly, or less if you want to wait for another of the same type

There is a GPU rainbow table project in boinc  -  http://boinc.freerainbowtables.com/distrrtgen/ and http://www.freerainbowtables.com/
