What is Cloud SETI?
Mining turns your machine into money, while SETI turns your machine into an alien finding satellite. You can purchase BPPD (BOINC Points Per Day) to search in the cloud with Eobot's hardware instead of running it on your own machine.
0% electricity/maintenance fee applied to Cloud SETI.
You will earn Gridcoins for your Cloud SETI.
Gridcoins will be distributed by using GRC via DPOR
Eobot will not receive any Gridcoins as a fee, and 100% of Gridcoins will be distributed back to users. For instance, if Eobot has 1000 BPPD in total supply, and you have leased 100 BPPD, then you will get 10% of the Gridcoins paid out.
SETI is largely a charitable action. In other words, don't expect to earn a large amount of Gridcoins back to pay for your investment.

Cloud SETI contracts are 1 year in duration.
Help the world find aliens. SETI@home is a scientific experiment that uses Internet-connected computers in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) by simply running a piece of software on your computer or in our cloud.
The problems we are trying to solve require so many calculations, we ask people to donate their unused computer power to crunch some of the numbers.

What are they currently researching?
We are assigned work units, and the project generally changes daily, or sometimes even more often. However, here's our latest research contribution for those interested:
