Currently, your Salad earnings are tied to the performance of Ethereum. ETH is the fastest, most reliable way for Salad to utilize your GPU’s power right now. However, earning rates fluctuate when mining for ETH, due to market changes, mining difficulty, and other factors.
This is why our top priority is to incorporate High Performance Computing into the Salad network. Individual earnings for these tasks are subject to neither market volatility nor the nuances of “winning the block.” Once we begin to run genome sequencing, machine learning, and other HPC jobs on Salad, our user’s earnings will not only be severed from market dependency, but have the chance to skyrocket compared to mining.
