if (err) return console.error(err);
client.api.getJoint(registry_unit.metadata_unit, function(err, result) {
if (err) return console.error(err);
const metadata = result.joint.unit.messages.find(item => == 'data');
console.log(registry_unit, metadata ? metadata.payload : null);

description: "WCG Point is a honorific token, a recognition of contributing to World Community Grid projects. The token is not transferable, therefore, it cannot be sold and the balance reflects a lifetime contribution to WCG. Some services might choose to offer a privilege to users with large balance of this token."
