Earn While You're Idle

Salad allows gamers to mine crypto in their downtime. We turn your GPU power into credits you can spend on items like subscriptions, games, gift cards, and more from our curated storefront.

How Salad Works


Requires Windows 7 or 10, and compatible hardware. Check here to see if your PC is supported.

The Salad app is open source, and supported by a strong, vocal community. While many believe that blockchain is harmful, Salad is changing this misconception with our 4.7 star Trustpilot rating and commitment to transparency.


Just click "Start" to put your computer to work.

Mining cryptocurrency is complicated, but Salad handles the hard part for you and allows users to reap the rewards of their PC’s work immediately. There is a catch though, running your computer uses electricity, so make sure you crunch the numbers on this. Get help from our Discord community.
