Folding@home policy on cryptocurrencies

In light of recent discussions within the Folding@home community concerning our relationship to cryptocurrencies, we would like to take this opportunity to make an official statement.  Folding@home does not endorse any cryptocurrencies at this time but we are happy to engage with participants with a wide variety of motivations. Whether you’re interested in curing diseases, advancing our understanding of how the world works, seeing who can build the fastest computer, or earning cryptocurrency. There’s a long history of participants in Folding@home developing third party applications that enhance the community, and we see cryptocurrencies as falling in this category. Our policies will always be dictated by the science that is the foundation of Folding@home, but maintaining a level of consistency that incentivizes everyone to continue participating in the project is a high priority.
