Hi I am new here and would like to know how do you use the work unit?
Can you exchange it for money or vouchers? I have been looking allover for how to use it but all i can find is how to make it.

This has been asked, and answered many times.
Credits are awarded for completing "tasks", and having them validated. Each Work Unit is sent out to, initially, two randomly selected users as tasks; when they have finished their tasks the two results are compared and credits are awarded, provided the task has not finished in an error (in which case you get no credit).
They have no monetary value, but are intended to be used in comparing the performance of our computers, both against ourselves and with other users.
