Bit coin mining isn't really much for cancer research for the most part, and lately the market has tanked so its not really worth going into anymore.

Folding is all about cancer research and works better on nvidia graphics cards then amd. Chris our folding captain or some of our big hitting folders would be able to tell you more about Fold@home.

Hey good to hear you interested in folding! Its a way of donating your cpu for cancer and alzheimers' research.

$3 bitcoin barely covers power, let alone hardware or any profit. Too bad it's amd for bitcoin and nvidia for folding.... Makes you very inefficient if you try to redirect your resources from one thing to the other (gpu wise)
