Miners of Bitcoin could combat the Coronavirus

Since the year 2000 there is an application with the power to bring together the power of the graphics cards are inactive, known as Folding@home. Among its possibilities you are able to conduct research on serious diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and Cancer. However, with the new pandemic of the world, will focus on studying the Coronavirus.

Nvidia urges you to collaborate with the research
