CPUShare is the first technology that can recycle CPU cycles over the Internet without requiring donations (in terms of a electric energy and aging of the CPU) from the home users.
CPUShare allows the home users to be rewarded with cash and in turn to profit from the significant power of their hardware that otherwise would be wasted every day.
Using the CPUCoins (the CPUCoins are a virtual credit, like in a video game), CPUShare can be optionally used as an energy accumulator, without requiring cash transactions to be useful. After accumulating CPUCoins, users can be allowed to share them with their friends, so that joint supercomputing projects can be developed too.
CPUShare might give to the Linux Desktop a Negative Total Cost of Ownership: thanks to CPUShare Linux is the first operative system that allows its users to sell the CPU resources online, to avoid wasting them."
