This will be my last time posting anything related to these podcasts here. I apologize if this is seen as spam. It is not intended.
I know there are some folks that know about Gridcoin but aren't exactly sure what it does, how it does what it does, and what some of the larger implications of all this blockchain/cryptocurrency/cryptoeconomic/democratized-incentive technology might be.
This is an episode that introduces everything. From network concepts, to security, to cryptoeconomics and incentives, to Gridcoin's open-source operation model. In the future we will be going into more detail with many of these topics and more, including how to bring more people into BOINC and distributed computing. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or think we should discuss a specific subject.

Here's timestamps and topics (I hope this formats correctly =). Note that these are more or less the topics that will be put into an updated, more permanent, and translatable whitepaper being developed (again) by myself and others.
