can cryptocoins be put to good use? now or in the future?


it would be amazing is there was a Cryptocoin that could be put to good use. Like some sort of protein folding. Curecoin, CureCancerCoin exists but it doesn't put anything towards computational research projects. Folding@Home is an example of something that could be integrated to a cryptocoin.

Is there anything other than Curecoin or CCC?

Primecoin is an example of a well-known cryptocurrency that is doing something useful. As its name implies, its utility relates to prime number discovery:

The innovative prime proof-of-work in Primecoin not only provides security and minting to the network, but also generates a special form of prime number chains of interest to mathematical research. Thus primecoin network is energy-multiuse, compared to bitcoin network.
