This is a very interesting project on the EOS.io Blockchain. You can utilize your CPUs to generate BOID tokens among other ways. Connect your devices and generate boid, and earn rewards.
If you are interested in giving it a try, the link is below. Also if you are holding EOS, there will be a 5 boid to 1 EOS airdrop coming soon too.

Further details and signup can be found by searching for "Boid Alpha".


What is BOID?
At the heart of Boid is the desire to make the benefits of blockchain technology accessible to all people. Boid acts as a gateway, lowering the barrier to entry for non-technical users to directly participate in blockchains and distributed computing projects. Boid has a social network layer, where users can join together in teams and compete on global leaderboards.

Can I make a blockchain based battle royale game? Capital investors should fall over themselves trying to give me money.

I still don't really understand what it is. I've read the wikipedia article, but I still don't get it.

It's no mining scam. They have a great Discord and Telegraph group too.

It's basically combining CPU power to help those that need it. In return you get rewarded. It's pretty cool. Actually.

You can make a Blockchain based game if you like. On the EOS.io Blockchain.

So far there's EOS Wizards, EOS Knights and a couple more. They also have buy and sell items in the game. Pretty cool.

I'm pleased to see that blockchain can be used to do better than wasting energy and computer parts.

I'm surprised cryptomining isn't a kind of "rent computational power" instead. Like you subscribe and get a cut of the rent price.

Agreed.

POW is inefficient and wastes massive amounts of power all while places in the world can use power / energy to survive but they can't afford it.

This is why Dan Larimer, Legendary Programmer and Genius Visionary created DPoS to help eventually rid the world if POW. The same thing Bitcoin uses.

Dan Larimer created Steemit, Bitshares and EOS. All three are the most active Blockchains of all time.

But why? SFEOS looks interesting, but what's the point of using blockchain technology for a game?

Decreased R&D costs and multi-game integration.
In game currency, selling virtual goods.
Higher security, multiple games on the same Blockchain allows cross functioning of game features. Etc.

Many more positives for Blockchain. Of course there's various negatives too, but the benefits outweigh IMO

This so stinks of brightlocker.com. If you want to contribute to human advancement, try BOINC.

Never heard of Azure or AWS? Better performance, lower cost, and secure environments. No reason to consider blockchain at all.

But why? SFEOS looks interesting, but what's the point of using blockchain technology for a game?
Makes the users directly pay for the upkeep. Other than time to write the code, the developer/operating can only profit.

The fact anything to do with blockchain doesn't come up with a search for "boid," this is really fringe/unpopular/obscure.

Wouldn't surprise me at all if the website has a JavaScript cryptominer running which tripped anti-malware software.

Here's a little more info about BOID.
BOID - Social SuperComputer based on EOS Tech.

They have rewards coming soon too.

So I've read through the entire boid site and that site, and I still have absolutely no idea what the point is, apart from generating BOIDs, which can be used to access "advanced account functions" and vote on the platform development and using them to mine cryptocurrency, which seems redundant.

What does it actually provide, practically?

By the Discord Boid Mod:
Boid is a metaplatform... meaning it will bring together distributed computing, mining and distributed storage in one easy to use account that an everyday computer owner can run. They can contribute to research while earning crypto for themselves or donate it to charity or scientific projects.

And to add:

Boids mission is to bring these protocols to the masses and help educate and facilitate the adoption of blockchain and distributed networks

So it's an "easy" way supposedly for non-techy people to mine crypto as well as contribute to distributed computing projects, just how much % does boid take from your mining efforts, I also see you linked your own account meaning you would also get a cut from anyone who joined using that link, that was nice of you... I'm sorry just for that reason and the fact that their info is so vague I'm out, though good luck trying to get others to sign up under your referral link, seems a lot like you spamming

So instead of running BOINC or mining Whatevercoins I mine BOIDs which i can then use to get Whatevercoins or spend on BOINC or whatever? That is utterly redundant and it sounds like someone is just after a quick buck because blockchain, look! I have a blockchain, and you can have one to! It's a platform! See how flat it is! Invest enough and you can vote! On stuff! AND THERE'S PRIZES!

CryptoKitties? The same one that's on Ethereum, the same Ethereum that's slow, expensive and pretty much useless. Probably not fine lol

Spamming? Not at all, it's free choice whether you want to view this thread or not. And that's correct, it's a referral link. Though you can always remove the end portion, had you chosen to try it out. That said, I'm sure U how referrals work. Like anything else that has referrals.

CryptoKitties? The same one that's on Ethereum, the same Ethereum that's slow, expensive and pretty much useless. Probably not fine lol



Spamming? Not at all, it's free choice whether you want to view this thread or not. And that's correct, it's a referral link. Though you can always remove the end portion, had you chosen to try it out. That said, I'm sure U how referrals work. Like anything else that has referrals.
its a referral link, regardless, you knew what you were doing posting it when you did and in all likelyhood you wanted to profit from it like everything with your own referallink, you didnt specify you were linking people to it and you wanted people to sign up to increase your presence/ranking, you should really get banned for such links imo

its free choice when jacki chan from china comes in posting links to his own crap on ebay but it's still spam, shame on you trying to profit from your own crap on boid expecting to profit from everyone signing up to this oh so great idea....

Seriously, get over yourself.
Careful not to click on 100's of thousands of referral links online OK. LMHO

A little abrasive with that "Seriously, get over yourself". @NdMk2o1o, has a right to express his/her concerns...

And, it is a little bit surreptitious to post a link and not disclose that you will, possibly, profit from it.


A little info on BOID, quote from their FAQ:

What does “Boid” mean?
Boid is short for bird-oid. A computer simulation of birds in a flock. Each “boid” follows simple rules of interaction with nearby boids. Many boids interacting results in emergent meta patterns. Likewise, the Boid Platform relies on computing resources from a large number of individual contributors. These small contributions cumulate into massive real-world impact.

What is Boid?
At the heart of Boid is the desire to make the benefits of blockchain technology accessible to all people. Boid acts as a gateway, lowering the barrier to entry for non-technical users to directly participate in blockchains and distributed computing projects. Boid has a social network layer, where users can join together in teams and compete on global leaderboards.

Who is Boid for?
Boid is for anyone who wants to be part of something huge. We designed Boid from the ground up to be as accessible as technologically possible. Anyone with a computer (or compatible smartphone) and internet connection can use Boid.

How do I participate in Boid?
Participation on Boid is all about increasing your Boid Power rating. To increase your Boid Power, you either need to contribute computing power by running the Boid application on your devices, or invite people using your invite link.

What happens when a person joins Boid using my invite link?
That person will automatically join your team and a small percentage of the Boid power generated by their devices will be credited towards you. There is no limit on the number of people you can invite or the Boid Power you can earn from those whom you invited.

How can I contribute computing power towards Boid?
To increase your Boid Power , you need to install the simple Boid application on your device. The Boid application runs in the background, transparently taking advantage of unused computing power. The Boid application connects to your Boid account, and can tap into your CPU, GPU, and HDD space automatically, to maximize your Boid Power rating. You can install the Boid app on as many of your devices as you like. Desktop computers with dedicated GPUs tend to perform the best, but laptops and cell-phones can also work as well.

Is Boid safe?
Security is a top priority for Boid. We only work with the most reputable distributed science projects, and we architected the Boid app such that applications have limited permissions. It’s worth noting that BOINC (the tech behind Boid) has been commonly used since the late 90s with a perfect security track record due to a robust security architecture. We continue to roll out updates to make Boid even more secure and hacker-proof.

A little info on BOID, quote from their FAQ:

I read that, and it says absolutely nothing of value. No practical applications apart from something about participating in a blockchain and competing, and how recruiting more people will give more Boid power, which isn't explained at all.

Did you read this FAQ on Tokenization:
What is the BOID?
Boid will have a native cryptocurrency called BOID. The token will be airdropped to EOS token holders in 2018 Q3. You can earn BOID IOUs during the Alpha by running the Boid app. More details about tokeneconomics will be released soon.

What is the function of BOIDs?
The Boid token (BOID) unlocks advanced functionality on the Boid platform. Users can stake their BOIDs to upgrade their account functionality. Staking BOIDS is required to create a Boid Team and issue team assets. BOIDs can also be staked for Proof-of-stake mining and voting. Staking BOIDs is required to operate a Boid masternode.

How do I get BOIDs?
When you participate in Boid you get to choose how you would like to be paid out. In addition to cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, you can choose to be paid in the native BOID. Additionally, if you are an EOS token holder you will receive some BOID tokens during the airdrop. You can also earn BOIDs by performing social functions on the platform like inviting your friends.

Just my opinion... It looks like some pyramid scheme.

Quote from TEAM FAQ:

What is a Boid team?
A Boid team is a group of users who are gathered around a specific brand or idea.

Do I have to be on a team?
All users on Boid participate as part of a team. If you can't find a team that you want to join you can just stay in the default Boid team or start your own team.

What is a Boid Team leader?
Team leaders are responsible for managing the incentives and rewards that a team provides to its users. Team leaders are a big reason you might choose one team over another.

What are the benefits of being a team leader on Boid?
Team leaders can capitalize on their existing audiences outside of Boid to engage with their community in interesting new ways. Team leaders receive a percentage of the Boid Power generated by the team. The can choose to use this Boid Power to generate cryptocurrencies or donate it to important causes.

Yep, and that doesn't really say anything either, other than they exist and you can use them to improve the platform, which will earn you more boids?
