Gridcoin implements a "Proof-of-Research" (POR) scheme, which rewards users with Gridcoin for performing useful scientific computations on the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC), a distributed computing platform. Gridcoin uses a more energy efficient[clarification needed] proof-of-stake system - although it fails to explicitly address the energy cost of computing power.
