Hey,

For some reason, the other thread has been locked (hopefully this thread will not meet a similar fate): https://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_thread.php?id=9648

Gridcoin website: https://gridcoin.us/
Stats: http://boincstats.com/en/stats/-1/team/detail/118094994/overview
Pool: http://pool.gridcoin.co/rankings/


Gridcoin (Ticker: GRC) is a decentralized, open source math-based digital asset (cryptocurrency). It performs transactions peer-to-peer cryptographically without the need for a central issuing authority.

Gridcoin was the first block chain protocol that delivered a working algorithm that equally rewards and cryptographically proves solving BOINC (Berkely Open Infrastructure for Network Computing) hosted work, which can be virtually any kind of distributed computing process (ASIC/GPU/CPU/Sensor/Etc).

BOINC is an open-source volunteer oriented computing grid that combines the processing power of all individual users for the purposes of scientific research. Its free, and harnesses the unused clock cycles from processors and graphics cards to aid in curing disease, exploring the mysteries of the universe, and more.

Gridcoin rewards BOINC computation using the Distributed Proof of Research (DPOR) reward mechanism, which is a combination of Proof of BOINC (POB) and Proof of Stake (POSv2).

Proof of Work (POW) consensus mechanisms are not utilised by the Gridcoin network, making the Gridcoin cryptocurrency network far more energy efficient than any existing POW cryptocurrencies.


You can earn Gridcoin via solo crunching (you need to stake a block to access your earned rewards) or via pool crunching (crunching using a pool cpid - you receive rewards every few days from the pool operator).

Currently, the Gridcoin network requires team 'Gridcoin' membersip (mandatory requirement), however this may not be the case forever: https://cryptocointalk.com/topic/44260-discussion-mandatory-team-gridcoin-membership-requirement/

Keep crunching!

All threads auto-lock after 90 days to stop spammers from using them as their vessel to sell their crap. Yours will fare the same fate, unless you or others periodically add content to it.

Clicking on the (report post image) on the locked thread and requesting that a moderator opens the thread so you can add to it is also a possibility. As long as you then add content to it within the next 24 hours, else it'll auto-lock again.

Gotcha, thanks for clearing this up. I'm too used to getting gridcoin threads locked/deleted on other forums lol. Could we delete the old thread?

Hi team Gridcoin, hi BOINC users,
This is my first post here.

CM made a well-apreciated presentation of Gridcoin at the BOINC Workshop 2017 in Paris.
Here is the steemit poster with a link to a Youtube video and a link the Soundcloud recording:
https://steemit.com/gridcoin/@cm-steem/i-attended-the-2017-boinc-workshop-and-gave-a-short-presentation-on-gridcoin

What a good way to re-open a thread :-) Thank you CM !
