Citizen Science Grid
The Citizen Science Grid is dedicated to supporting a wide range of research and educational projects using volunteer computing and citizen science.
Jan. 2017 Working Project. CPU only. Windows, Linux, Mac and Android.
I think their Android support ended when the subset_sum project concluded. It's now Windows, Linux, and x86 Mac only.

Their Android application was last seen on a course towards the Bermuda Triangle.

DENIS@home and Enigma@Home have, to all appearances, been abandoned.
Free-DC is managing them still like active projects, but Boincstats shows them as "retired".

(Oh, and SETI@home is on its way into its indefinite hiatus.)

Edit, NumberFields@home and SRBase now have AMD GPU and NVIDIA GPU applications.

Edit 2, Rosetta@home and Universe@home have Android applications.
Universe@home does not have an active AMD GPU application anymore.

Minecraft@home is a new project with a GPU app.

"Minecraft@Home studies questions related to Minecraft, such as the properties of worlds that can be generated from different random seeds."

"Currently, this application only supports Windows 64-bit clients with an Nvidia GPU, this will be expanded to cover the majority of other platforms soon."

New BOINC project: Kryptos@home
Vbox only with native app(s) planned.
Can join project via above website only.
I joined the project but cannot create a team until I have completed a task, and the project apparently doesn't have any work available (or just doesn't want to give me any) right now...

Thank you for the update. Always looking for new projects to add to the stats collection! ;)

Edit: Tasks have been received and completed, so now the team has also been created. :)

New project SciEnterprise.


Accounts must be created on the site. Not in the BOINC client.
The invitation code is: um-sjtu

The TeAm has been created.

Project description from the site: Welcome to Science@Enterprise! Nowadays, enterprises own a lot of idle computing resources in their private cloud, while research projects are restricted by limited computing power. In this project, we aim to decrease this imbalance by building CloudTides, which is an elastic platform on idle cloud resources. Enterprises can donate their idle cloud servers, and individual organizations or research groups can make use of these resources.

There are Windows, Linux, and Mac OS applications with VBox. Also several native Linux applications.
No work has been created yet, as of 1/29/2021.
