The Charity Engine app was not invented purely to be a charity fundraiser, but to harness the vast idle computing capacity of the Internet's 2Bn PCs and 1Bn smartphones.
The charity partners are essential for user acquisition and retention, as they give CE credibility with the public and are an almost universally acceptable reason for participating.
The result is a unified global PC grid that is already more powerful than the world's fastest supercomputer, yet costs virtually nothing to run.
Product is live.
Charity Engine is now the cheapest, greenest and most ethical computing platform on Earth - literally.
