Gpugrid has a credit bonus scheme to incentivize a fast return for processed tasks.
Bonus are dependent on the time elapsed from one task is sent to a host, to a valid result is received by the server from that host.
You'll find a full description at the following link:

With some rare exceptions, explained at this other link:

Work Unit #27061433, comprising your task #32607445 just hit what I call the "credit paradox" scene...

the first one with lower credits is because you returned it after a valid task was already returned, so you get the same credit they got. they returned it after the 48-hr bonus period so you both only got base credit.

chronologically this is what happened:
-task was sent to an Ampere host, errored out
-task was resent to the host before you
-that host did not return their result before the 5-day deadline.
-task was resent again to you
-host before you finally completed their work and returned it, was awarded base credit (348,750)
-you returned your result, even though within 48hrs for the bonus, you will only get the same credit as the host before you.
