In return, we receive points based on how much we Fold. Every year, the top Folding teams compete against each other in the Chimp Challenge. Partly to increase production across the board, partly for pride.

Remember that we Fold for the research, not for points, or victory in a competition. As such, we do not encourage actions that are detrimental to the Project. This includes priming multiple WUs to drop as the competition starts, or Folding on hardware without permission from the owners.
