KyotoPotato is all about helping the environment.
Users of the site get credit rewards for producing less idle time than other users of the system. These credits can be stored in the users KyotoPotato portfolio or bought and sold on the Idle Exchange Market, a market which trades idle minutes from different continents as commodities.
How does it work?
An application on your computer records the time you are not using your computer but is switched on. The time you are not using your computer is called idle time and gets added to your KyotoPotato account. The idle time can be sold on the idle exchange market.
The price of idle differs from continent to continent getting cheaper the more the users in that continent create idle time and more expensive the less it is produced1 and purchased.
