Mine this coin on any computer while your computer NOT in use. You can even mine on your mobile device, and you don't need a powerful GPU, you can mine on any CPU even if you mine other coins in parallel.
And the COOL part is, your compute resources are not wasted, but are rather used to solve scientific problems, such as finding cure for Zika and Ebola, solving complex math problems, etc.

Mining Gridcoin isn't a competition to waste the most energy but to find the "cure" of cancer, Embola or HIV...

The Decentralized Hardware Evolution Project (https://dhep.ga) is one of the 20 projects the Gridcoin team is contributing to. This project uses artificial evolution for circuits in concurrent error detection. This can pave the way for self-diagnosing hardware that will repair itself! Very exciting stuff, and great to be apart of.

The Gridcoin ecosystem brings people together and gets actual real-world work done. It is a cryptocurrency that has substantial ability to drive humanity itself into the future by encouraging people to invest into science.
Gridcoin is for everyone. Any regular person can become a researcher and start computing scientific projects to help advance the understanding of humanity and get rewarded for it!
Mine science, not hashes!
This is truly something worth investing in.

Billions and billions of watts are used to mine those shitty coin. Gridcoin makes the energy waste into something good.

For Science, for humanity!
Gridcoin is as secure, but several times faster than Bitcoin. Moving energy and hardware resources to Gridcoin network, resources wasted now in Bitcoin network, would allow us to solve many scientific and health related problems.
I'm not against Bitcoin, just we should use Earth's resources in a considerate and wise ways.

For anyone thinking about signing up for boinc
If you want to get started making some Gridcoin using boinc then here's are links to the pools:

Gridcoin is a cryptocurrency that leads to scientific/mathematical discovery. The computations aren't wasted! Gridcoin helps use idle processing power for Science!

Hope we win this time!

This is one of the few coins where the power used for mining is not a total waste of electricity/energy. Imagine that research that could be done if people stopped wasting CPU time on useless hashes and put them to useful scientific research. I truly hope most other coins fall to the wayside and Gridcoin really takes off. It's something special.

A reward for the altruistic work of many people who shares their computer power for science projects like seti, cure for cancers, medicines...

Because it is based Proof of Research (PoR) rather than on Proof of (intrinsically useless) Work (PoiuW), every Gridcoin earned advances vetted scientific research projects (currently managed by BOINC).

Bitcoin is fueled by coal-fired power plants in China. Even with a conservative emission factor, this results in an extreme carbon footprint for each unique Bitcoin transaction. With Gridcoin the energy is used for computational research.
