The Big Picture

CureCoins go to three main areas: Folders, Miners, and Developers. The folders will get 76% of the total coins (or 80% of the coins distributed per day - see "Day to Day" for more info). SHA256 miners get 19% of the total coins (or 20% of the coins distributed per day). 2% of the total funds are distributed to people who donated to project development. The other 3% is dedicated to Curecoin developers, and will be used for paying for development costs (such as hiring professional programmers, paying for infrastructure, etc.), and for giving back to the community (folding hardware giveaways, faucets, covering 0% mining pools, etc.). In total, this means that 5% of the total CureCoin mintage is reserved, and the rest is distributed daily to network members.

Day to Day

So how many CURE is your folding equipment earning? Each day our "Protein Folding Team Members", as a whole, receive 7488 CureCoins to be divided amongst them proportionally. This means that each folder receives (FolderPPD / TeamPPD) * 7488 CureCoins.

Some examples:

You can estimate your earnings (Use the "24hr Avg" from the stats at the top for a very rough estimate, or click through and use the last full day's 24-hour stats for more accuracy):

(YourPPD / TeamPPD) * 7488

To determine daily folding cost; include your equipment's power consumption, hardware depreciation & maintenance:
Start by multiplying the following: Equipment's total Thermal Design Power (TDP) * cost of local utility kWh rate * 24 hours (alternatively use a Kill-a-Watt meter to determine specific power usage). Add depreciation costs for your computer equipment based on a depreciation curve (use example in: Depre123 or similar). Then don't forget to include your personal time maintaining your rig(s) since the average US pay rate for a System's Administrator/Technician is $22/hour.

The remaining 20% of Daily Coin goes to our miners. Those coins are mined via SHA-256 in 13-CureCoin blocks (see pie chart at the top of this page).
