He realised a significant amount of power was needed for these projects and while he offered a few hundred GPUs to these projects, he knew the best tool for the job was BOINC, so he started the 'Minecraft@Home' project to get this done and deployed and maintains the BOINC servers which have been used for some of these seed finding projects, including this one
