Unlike many cryptocurrency miners, the BOINC toolkit won't turn your powerful computer into a sluggish machine.
The process of building this superensemble begins when a volunteer registers with BOINC and obtains a task from the BOINC server at Oxford University, and the task runs on his/her computer while it is idle.

He said Boinc was different from other existing services because it offered access to all music without download charges, monthly subscription fees and ads, while also ensuring a fair compensation for artists.
Now, MilkyWay@Home has outgrown even this famous project, in terms of speed, making it the fastest computing project on the BOINC platform and perhaps the second fastest public distributed computing program ever in operation, just behind Folding@home.The interdisciplinary team behind MilkyWay@Home, which ranges from professors to undergraduates, began the formal development under the BOINC platform in July 2006 and worked tirelessly to build a volunteer base from the ground up to build its computational power.
The result is BOINC, which stands for Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (
The software for the model, which was produced by UC-Berkeley's Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC), is derived from the global climate model originally produced by the U.K.'s Meteorological Office.
The BBC and Oxford University are running what they claim is 'the world's largest climate change experiment'--using downloadable BOINC software developed at the University of California, Berkeley, to harness the collective idle computing power of at least 10 000 personal computers, generating more model calculations per second than the largest supercomputer.
One can install a free, open-source software program called BOINC (Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing), developed at the University of California, and link up to the Docking Server at the University of Delaware to become part of the network.
