PODC (Proof of Distributed Computing) allows blockchain energy to be used productively,
to help cure cancer and fight AIDS and Malaria!

With BiblePay (BBP), a Charity Cryptocurrency,
you can now earn BiblePay coins for you volunteered CPU science contributions!

You will need to perform some initial setup steps
after which BiblePay coin rewards will be distributed daily to your Wallet!
To fully receive rewards you will need to buy and hold some BiblePay coins in your Wallet, this is called "staking"

This guide is for novices and experts, please skip any steps you have already completed

PART F: Calculate Staking

If your RAC is below 250, you do not need to have any coins

If you are on "Team BiblePay", you need (RAC ^ 1.3) coins
If you are not on "Team BiblePay", you need (RAC ^ 1.6) coins
