Have you thought about the economics of having a program where people earn money from allowing use of there processing power vs paying for it regularly/ having your own processing power.

Even if it was barely worth it for the user after factoring in electricity costs the novelty factor might attract people.

We have thought about it.. there is a downloadable app an individual can use, but it's not too likely they'll earn any significant money.
