Today i was browsing the GPUGRID forum looking for moar info about ATI when i meet that thread

http://www.gpugrid.net/forum_thread.php?id=2839

About a new project where ATI runs and wow, runs better than Nvidia (GPUGRID is a nvidia only project, they are working on an ATI client but so far with fail performance)
And it will help with their funding... oh well let's check

http://www.donateathome.org/

And...

Quote
Donate at home is a fund raising initiative. Donate@Home allows participants to donate towards funding by using their GPU to ‘mine for BitCoins’. This novel way of generating funding involves contributing within the bitcoin experimental network. Crunchers don’t gain bitcoins in this project, the project does and can convert these into standard currencies. Donate@home’s first goal is to raise enough funds through the collective contribution to be able to contract a researcher for the Gpugrid group

Basically donate@home is a mining project, partecipants attach to it with BOINC and crunch work units that mine bitcoins.

Sure, it can be useful but it's weird... they don't say much about mining and whatelse, not even on the forum

Also, someone found a donation address somewhere? They even start a bitcoin mining project but doesn't accept bitcoin as donation?
The network tries to produce one block per 10 minutes. It does this by automatically adjusting how difficult it is to produce blocks.

They need to link the between (not just one way) between the donateathome.org and the cpugrid.net so we know that donateathome.org is not a scam.  I personally do not think it is a scam, but it would take very little effort on their part to make it more concrete.

it's not very official but it seems that a senior member has posted the thread on the gpugrid.net

and i like his enthusiasm but it doesn't seem to have much support from his "folders", guess he feels like Gavin sometimes when he proposes new stuff and we get all over him with saying things. They claim bitcoin is used for bad things and stop there without thinking they could use it for science and be a good thing, old chicken and egg problem.

There is a chicken/egg problem with growing bitcoin use, but "ohhh, bad people use it" is just a chicken problem.

If the project administrator of gpugrid speak about it, it is not a scam.

I'd love to see an open source BOINC miner, perferrably for p2ppool with adjustable payout addresses. It could be financed by taking a 0.1% fee or whatever for the devs or the main server operator who tracks stats + hosts the project.

I certainly don't want to donate bitcoins through mining, so the project is not for me, but in general I like the idea of combining BOINC + BTC, as it is a great infrastructure and very easy to set up for a first tryout of mining.
