SPARC is currently being rebranded to DCC Credits.
is a token being awarded for BOINC computation on the Ethereum network. GRCPool.com is participating in the alpha stage of the DCC network.
In other words, by using the pool, you are essentially dual mining with BOINC. Not all projects are supported by DCC, check the pool project status page
The pool receives DCC via their network website every 1-2 weeks. I manually send the DCC to an Ethereum address to store them from the DCC website.
After the tokens are received, I reference the DCC website and update the amount received per project into the pool's database. This is a completely manual process of entering in the DCC amount
for each project into the pool's database as there is no API and you can't use copy/paste either. At this point, a process is triggered to distribute the tokens
on a per project basis using your recent average credit to determine the number of tokens you receive, and the owed amount is incremented within your account.
Withdrawal of DCC automatically is not currently available. However, you can enter in your ETH ERC20 address capable of receiving tokens on your account page.
From the DCC address page, you can also initiate a request to have your DCC paid out. I may charge a 1-5 GRC fee to cover ETH gas if needed. Also, I usually do waive the fee if you
are donating to the pool.
