    Is there any there any way to make money from using the power of your gpu or cpu that pays well? The only other thing that I know of that harnesses the power of your computer for calcuations is for charity things such as SETI.

    Yes I have it running on a slave desktop. The maximum you can earn is $45 per month, but its worth it if you have a machine running all the time anyway.

    Yes you can run it on a VM

    It uses cpu
