At ColossusXT, we are committed to contribute for the computational research, one of the reasons why we are here today as volunteers to build a truly decentralized grid platform that caters to the privacy of its users, Colossus Grid. As of today, we are starting a campaign to join forces for the fight against COVID-19 and we will be rewarding the most contributing users to COVID-19 computational research.

As some of you might already know, Folding@home project aims to understand disease mechanisms at the molecular level then find weaknesses that medicines can exploit. Today, it is simulating the dynamics of COVID-19 proteins to hunt for new therapeutic opportunities. You can easily start contributing to this research by downloading the Folding@home client today.

To incentivize participation for this good cause, we’ve decided to create our Folding@Home team together with the Gath3r community which has aligned vision with us and we are going to turn it into a friendly competition.

Starting right now and until the end of June, we’ll be running a competition for most credits completed within our Folding@Home team. Our team number is 260272.

Rules for the Campaign

We will provide 1,000,000 $COLX + 10,000 $GTH as a prize pool!

  • First place gets 500,000 $COLX* + 5,000 $GTH**
  • Second gets 350,000 $COLX* + 3,500 $GTH**
  • Third gets 150,0000 $COLX* + 1,500 $GTH**

* COLX rewards to be distributed right after the following week when the event ends

** GTH rewards will be distributed after the token is listed on an exchange as per standard vesting schedule
