Every person that partecipates to the SETI@HOME project receives credits (you can see how many credits you received in your profile). But what are these credits? How do they work? Can I use them in any way? I'll wait an answer.

Thank you so much,
Alessandro

Credits are a way for the project to thank you for voluntarily doing work for them. They are mainly used to compare how well your computer does, against other computers. They can't be used for anything else, they don't have a monetary function.
