What is Grass?

Grass is a network of over 2 million people who are rewarded for helping AI developers access the internet. Its goal is to prevent the concentration of AI by allowing ordinary people to play a part and share in the benefits of its growth.

How is Grass utilized by AI labs?

Training an AI model takes a huge amount of web data, which can be obtained from public websites. Grass nodes view these websites and compile structured datasets from their contents, which are then sold to AI labs for use in the training process. To learn more about the role that Grass plays in AI development, check out our blog post here.

How does this involve me?

When you install a Grass node, the network will occasionally route web requests using your internet connection. Think of it as your computer checking a random website every once in a while. None of this will be visible to you and it will not affect your internet experience at all.

Is my personal data safe while using Grass?

Grass does not access or utilize your personal data in any way. The network is used to access public websites, and has nothing to do with the data on your computer. You can use Grass with confidence knowing that your personal data is safe and secure. To read more about how Grass can guarantee your privacy and security, check out our blog post on the subject here.

How can I get involved?

Simply download one of the Grass apps on the Chrome Web Store or the Google Play store, sign up, and start participating!

What is Wynd Labs?

Wynd Labs is a core contributor to Grass.

How does the referral system work?

Direct Referrals:

  • When you join Grass, you'll get a unique referral link. Share this link with others.

  • If someone uses your link to download and use Grass, you earn a bonus. You’ll receive 20% of the Grass Points they accumulate, continuously. This means the more active they are, the more points you get.

Extended Referrals:

  • The rewards don’t stop at direct referrals. You also benefit when your referrals bring in new users.

  • Secondary Points: If your direct referral successfully invites another user, you earn an additional 10% of the uptime points this secondary referral accumulates. This bonus is ongoing, enhancing your earnings as long as they remain active on Grass.

  • Tertiary Points: The system extends further. If a secondary referral from your network invites someone else (a tertiary referral), you gain an extra 5% of the uptime points earned by this tertiary referral.

New Enhancements:

  • Referral Bonuses:

    • When you referral someone to the grass network you receieve 2,500 bonus points, subject to your referral hitting 100hrs of uptime.

    • When you join the grass network via an invite link you recieve 5,000 bonus points, subject to hitting 100hrs of uptime.

  • Tiered System: A new tiered system offers additional bonuses based on the number of referrals you have and their overall activity on the network. Check out the list here.

In summary, the more active users you refer, and the more active users they in turn refer, the greater your rewards. It's a comprehensive system that appreciates and rewards your efforts in growing the Grass community.

Note: Referral bonuses (20/10/5%) are not subject to the 100hr uptime threshold.

Can I download Grass on multiple devices?

While you can download Grass on multiple devices, if they’re all connected to the same Wi-Fi network, you’ll receive a split of 24 hours of uptime between all the accounts on the network.

Can I make multiple accounts to earn more?

Each user is permitted only one account. You’ll be able to add more than one device under your account - if you have a computer and a mobile device, for example - but you risk being banned if you attempt to game the referral program by referring yourself under multiple accounts.

Are there any restrictions or limitations on using Grass?
  1. You must be 18 or older to use Grass.

  2. If two or more accounts are on the same Wi-Fi network, daily uptime earnings will be split between the two accounts.

  3. Grass cannot be used with a VPN enabled.
