BOINC Development Fund
The Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing is a software tool connecting researchers with large data sets to an international network of volunteers willing to contribute their computational power. The combined computational power of BOINC’s volunteer computing network comprises one of the world’s largest supercomputers.
Unfortunately, BOINC has suffered from a lack of development funding over its lifespan of 20 years. This has hampered its usability and functionality, preventing new user engagement and full utilization of hardware resources.
Indeed, BOINC’s network of volunteers continues to shrink. For BOINC to thrive it needs the means for continuous development and support. Since the closure of the [email protected] project and bounties, there hasn't been a way to monetarily support BOINC and its developers. Your contributions to the BOINC Development Fund will go directly towards bug bounties and BOINC development.
These bounties and developments will help us add a number of bugfixes and features to the BOINC software with the goal to enhance BOINC’s usability and user experience.
We can accept donations via the following methods:
- CC/Debit Card
Be sure to choose the correct project fund you want your donation to support, or let us choose and we'll put the money where it is needed most!
Did you know that The IRS classifies cryptocurrency as property for tax purposes? This means that donating crypto, as opposed to selling crypto to donate fiat, is the most efficient way to support our cause!
