I stumbled across this site just now called coingeneration.com...
which promotes a program that allows it's users to "generate money" by
allowing it to use part of the cpu.
From the sources and forums i've read so far, apparently you lend this company "1 thread" of your cpu, by installing a program on your computer -
allowing it to run in the background, in exchange for $1 every 24 hours of use.
Now from my understanding, each core on a cpu (some cpu's have 2 cores, some have 4) usually supports its own "thread", however some cores (namely,
intel) support "hyper-threading" - which is multiple "logical threads" rather than actual threads.
However, we'll stick to the former as that's easier (1 thread per core)
A "thread" is a task that any given core may handle at any given time to run an application. Therefore if your cpu has 4 cores, then it supports 4
threads, allowing you to run 4 applications at any one time. Note that your OS switches between these apps at a fast rate, which is why you can have
lots of apps open doing nothing.
So by "hiring a thread" (or using up some of your computer power - for the laymen), this company is essentially paying you ($1 per thread per 24
hours). It does "sound" like an online scam, however i'm still looking into it and haven't fully concluded on anything.
The purpose of this thread is to gain other people's opinions if they've had their own experiences with this site or if you haven't - it doesn't
matter, just what do you think about the concept?
Seeing as the website mentions discussions at bilderberg meetings, an "unusual" program funded by a cloud supercomputer, and the morality of the
company, i'm personally starting to get the idea they are trying to reassure its users. Why are they going out of their way to mention morality?
Please try and stay on topic, and give educated responses. Don't just say "it sounds stupid". Try and elaborate your answers.
