Dota 2 recently had an international competition with $1million prize money for the top team. It would be great if Foldit can make itself a really big game by holding competitions with prize moneys so large that it can draw professional gamers all over the world. Foldit will definately get some full time players such large prize money =) I think this game can definitely be big like the olympics.

A good idea in theory, but who will front all this prize money? Would you donate a large figure to make this happen? For what protein should the money be awarded?
