Hi, I've just created a new account and I didn't understand what the credits are and in what they consist. I only see I've for now more than 100 credits pending. I try to search something but I didn't find what I need about. Can you explain to me this? Thanks and best regards.

They are a measure of how much work you have done. Used to compare the performance of users, teams and projects. They have no monetary value.

Read more about credits here.

Third party sites such as boincstats use them to provide all sorts of rankings.
