Hey all, so I won't be able to mine on my server anymore due to power usage, i actually changed over from BOINC to another program for quite a while because it was going faster, however I started up gridcoin again, and apparently I have over 5000grc (still syncing but it's a tad over 5345 right now). Pretty surprising, which is awesome, however I'm wondering what the best way is to sell it or convert it to bitcoin so that I can move it over to electrum. I'm in Canada if that makes any difference.
Bitcoin mentioned around Reddit: How much computing power would the Bitcoin network have if the DOE managed to bribe/payoff the developers to convert bitcoin to be a type of gridcoin clone in order to harness that computing potential /r/hardware
Bitcoin address is red when I try to send myself gridcoin?
Hey all so finally set up a bitcoin wallet, and I tried to send myself some gridcoin, however the bitcoin address turned red when I tried. It's a coinbase wallet, I'm just wondering what the cause of this is, or if I need to do an exchange somewhere before I can send it to my wallet.
As of right now Bitcoin Has Fallen 7.29% at 9:45 am est to $442. A quick check of Crypto-currency Market cap shows That most alt coins Took Big Losses around 10% to 25% in many cases. That Being Said Gridcoins Loss at this time is only negative 3.87% Which is about only Half the Loss Of bitcoin.

That Being Said Gridcoins Loss at this time is only negative 3.87% Which is about only Half the Loss Of bitcoin. Of course this can change alot and the information on coin market cap is really not perfectly accurate all of the time. Lets Study how gridcoin compares to Bitcoin in a Dip. I'm Hoping that Gridcoins could hedge against bitcoin
https://github.com/gridcoin-community/Gridcoin-Research/releases/tag/220.127.116.11 Finally! After over ten months of development and testing, "Fern" has arrived! This is a whopper. 240 pull requests merged. Essentially a complete rewrite that was started with the scraper (the "neural net" rewrite) in "Denise" has now been completed. Practically the ENTIRE Gridcoin specific codebase resting on top of the vanilla Bitcoin/Peercoin/Blackcoin vanilla PoS code has been rewritten. This removes the team requirement at last (see below), although there are many other important improvements besides that. Fern was a monumental undertaking. We had to encode all of the old rules active for the v10 block protocol in new code and ensure that the new code was 100% compatible. This had to be done in such a way as to clear out all of the old spaghetti and ring-fence it with tightly controlled class implementations. We then wrote an entirely new, simplified ruleset for research rewards and reengineered contracts (which includes beacon management, polls, and voting) using properly classed code. The fundamentals of Gridcoin with this release are now on a very sound and maintainable footing, and the developers believe the codebase as updated here will serve as the fundamental basis for Gridcoin's future roadmap. We have been testing this for MONTHS on testnet in various stages. The v10 (legacy) compatibility code has been running on testnet continuously as it was developed to ensure compatibility with existing nodes. During the last few months, we have done two private testnet forks and then the full public testnet testing for v11 code (the new protocol which is what Fern implements). The developers have also been running non-staking "sentinel" nodes on mainnet with this code to verify that the consensus rules are problem-free for the legacy compatibility code on the broader mainnet. We believe this amount of testing is going to result in a smooth rollout. Given the amount of changes in Fern, I am presenting TWO changelogs below. One is high level, which summarizes the most significant changes in the protocol. The second changelog is the detailed one in the usual format, and gives you an inkling of the size of this release.
Note that the protocol changes will not become active until we cross the hard-fork transition height to v11, which has been set at 2053000. Given current average block spacing, this should happen around October 4, about one month from now. Note that to get all of the beacons in the network on the new protocol, we are requiring ALL beacons to be validated. A two week (14 day) grace period is provided by the code, starting at the time of the transition height, for people currently holding a beacon to validate the beacon and prevent it from expiring. That means that EVERY CRUNCHER must advertise and validate their beacon AFTER the v11 transition (around Oct 4th) and BEFORE October 18th (or more precisely, 14 days from the actual date of the v11 transition). If you do not advertise and validate your beacon by this time, your beacon will expire and you will stop earning research rewards until you advertise and validate a new beacon. This process has been made much easier by a brand new beacon "wizard" that helps manage beacon advertisements and renewals. Once a beacon has been validated and is a v11 protocol beacon, the normal 180 day expiration rules apply. Note, however, that the 180 day expiration on research rewards has been removed with the Fern update. This means that while your beacon might expire after 180 days, your earned research rewards will be retained and can be claimed by advertising a beacon with the same CPID and going through the validation process again. In other words, you do not lose any earned research rewards if you do not stake a block within 180 days and keep your beacon up-to-date. The transition height is also when the team requirement will be relaxed for the network.
Besides the beacon wizard, there are a number of improvements to the GUI, including new UI transaction types (and icons) for staking the superblock, sidestake sends, beacon advertisement, voting, poll creation, and transactions with a message. The main screen has been revamped with a better summary section, and better status icons. Several changes under the hood have improved GUI performance. And finally, the diagnostics have been revamped.
The wallet sync speed has been DRASTICALLY improved. A decent machine with a good network connection should be able to sync the entire mainnet blockchain in less than 4 hours. A fast machine with a really fast network connection and a good SSD can do it in about 2.5 hours. One of our goals was to reduce or eliminate the reliance on snapshots for mainnet, and I think we have accomplished that goal with the new sync speed. We have also streamlined the in-memory structures for the blockchain which shaves some memory use. There are so many goodies here it is hard to summarize them all. I would like to thank all of the contributors to this release, but especially thank @cyrossignol, whose incredible contributions formed the backbone of this release. I would also like to pay special thanks to @barton2526, @caraka, and @Quezacoatl1, who tirelessly helped during the testing and polishing phase on testnet with testing and repeated builds for all architectures. The developers are proud to present this release to the community and we believe this represents the starting point for a true renaissance for Gridcoin!
Most significantly, nodes calculate research rewards directly from the magnitudes in EACH superblock between stakes instead of using a two- or three- point average based on a CPID's current magnitude and the magnitude for the CPID when it last staked. For those long-timers in the community, this has been referred to as "Superblock Windows," and was first done in proof-of-concept form by @denravonska.
Network magnitude unit pinned to a static value of 0.25
Max research reward allowed per block raised to 16384 GRC (from 12750 GRC)
New CPIDs begin accruing research rewards from the first superblock that contains the CPID instead of from the time of the beacon advertisement
500 GRC research reward limit for a CPID's first stake
6-month expiration for unclaimed rewards
10-block spacing requirement between research reward claims
Rolling 5-day payment-per-day limit
Legacy tolerances for floating-point error and time drift
The need to include a valid copy of a CPID's magnitude in a claim
10-block emission adjustment interval for the magnitude unit
One-time beacon activation requires that participants temporarily change their usernames to a verification code at one whitelisted BOINC project
Verification codes of pending beacons expire after 3 days
Self-service beacon removal
Burn fee for beacon advertisement increased from 0.00001 GRC to 0.5 GRC
Rain addresses derived from beacon keys instead of a default wallet address
Beacon expiration determined as of the current block instead of the previous block
The ability for developers to remove beacons
The ability to sign research reward claims with non-current but unexpired beacons
As a reminder:
Beacons expire after 6 months pass (180 days)
Beacons can be renewed after 5 months pass (150 days)
Renewed beacons must be signed with the same key as the original beacon
Magnitudes less than 1 include two fractional places
Magnitudes greater than or equal to 1 but less than 10 include one fractional place
A valid superblock must match a scraper convergence
Superblock popularity election mechanics
Yes/no/abstain and single-choice response types (no user-facing support yet)
To create a poll, a maximum of 250 UTXOs for a single address must add up to 100000 GRC. These are selected from the largest downwards.
Burn fee for creating polls scaled by the number of UTXOs claimed
50 GRC for a poll contract
0.001 GRC per claimed UTXO
Burn fee for casting votes scaled by the number of UTXOs claimed
0.01 GRC for a vote contract
0.01 GRC to claim magnitude
0.01 GRC per claimed address
0.001 GRC per claimed UTXO
Maximum length of a poll title: 80 characters
Maximum length of a poll question: 100 characters
Maximum length of a poll discussion website URL: 100 characters
Maximum number of poll choices: 20
Maximum length of a poll choice label: 100 characters
Magnitude, CPID count, and participant count poll weight types

What is your personal financial strategy and vision of Gridcoin?
I started the 2020 year by totally ignoring what is a blockchain, or a cryptocoin. And once I started Qwant-ing (alt Google) it, it was a matter of a few days that I learned how to CPU and GPU mine. I even got a SHA-256 ASIC warming up my flat. Of course, the more I learned about Bitcoin and other PoW coins, the worse I was feeling about the incredible waste of energy with such useless hashes and the consequences of the greedy speculation against the "smaller" coins. So I got rid of the ASIC and while looking at the web for alternative coins using PoS or similar, I found this project, in which I really get identified. Now I'm a happy math and astronomy cruncher. It's just amazing, to be crunching and at the same time, getting rewarded. There are plenty of things to contribute to this project, and I feel really motivated to get further involved into it. Now my question concerns the "money" side, the financial stuff. Of course Gridcoin is not Bitcoin, although it seems that Gridcoin has a long story behind. I see potential, mostly due to the very active community, the increasing interest in Distributed Computing (and thus the eventual popularity of the Proof-of-Research concept) and the "seriousness" of this project. But the perpetual inflation and the apparent lack of significant volume exchanges might underestimate its value, strictly speaking of the markets dynamics. The growing scarcity and popularity of the mainstream coins might also be pushing this coin out of the radar of most of the people, explaining the actual stagnancy of the GRC market. And so, here is where I ask to you: what is your vision of Gridcoin? Do you (personally) bet everything for this project, in terms of investments (GRC-only wallets) and computational resources? Or do you diversify your portfolios, speculating as well in another cryptos/stocks? I'd really like to hear from you, to know if you're interested (or not) in the money side of the project, and, for the affirmative case, to know why you're here and why you want to stay here. Thank you for your attention and your feedback!
Going over 16 GB of RAM is pointless.... thoughts?
I'm a Mac tech and I often have to decide how much I should upgrade someone's computer. People often thing that RAM = SPEED, thus the more RAM, the more speed. My general rule of thumb is that for regular use, 8 GB is plenty for almost everyone. The idea of more always being better comes from the days when no computer could hold "enough" or at least no one could afford "enough". But these days, you can easily load up a machine. But some people are power users, some people run a lot of heavy stuff, and for those people, 16 GB can be noticeably better than 8 GB. For the sake of this discussion, lets completely ignore/exclude servers and virtual machines. I'm a bit of a power user myself. I've been running 16 GB on my primary computer for about 8 years now. It's great. I've definitely used all of it, occasionally. But I've never felt like I was short on memory. Recently I upgraded a Mac Pro I also run, from 7 GB to 32 GB. It wasn't my intention to go that high but it was a crazy deal so I went for it. This Mac is currently running Bitcoin core wallet, Dogecoin core wallet, Gridcoin wallet, BOINC with 12 full time Rosetta work units, and [email protected]. That's a lot of work for one machine. It would regularly choke to death on that when I had 7 GB. Since upgrading, I've kept an eye on it and it has never gone over 16 GB of used memory. Of course, adding RAM is always a case of diminishing returns the higher you go. But I feel like you would be hard pressed to find reasonable situations (again, excluding servers and running virtual machines), that would really benefit AT ALL from having more than 16 GB of RAM. Thoughts? Please be specific and bring specs/configs if you got em.
I've been in the cryptocurrency industry for 4 years now. Thought much about it. I don't mean this by any negative context, just going off by what I see. I have reason to believe that popular cryptocurrencies by marketcap are not in favor of innovation in context to creating an new form of money. How is that so? To figure this out we first have to look at fiat currency; the currency currently with the greatest market share. Notice that because we've not had the technology of cryptocurrency greater than 10 years ago, we had to rely on the fiat framework for money. You'll notice that as a fundamental expression of value changing over to crypto has been highly difficult in part that we tend to entrust leadership to those with lots of fiat currency. If our current leadership is optimized for fiat, wouldn't spending by the rich be more directed at buying cryptocurrencies that would protect the value of fiat? It's hard to believe that Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, ect could be doing the opposite of what they claim to be doing. But bare with me. It's well known that Bitcoin and Ethereum are hoarders of electricity. The objective of those industries is to control the electricity supply whether it be renewable or not. And why might that be? I presume it's to stop any cryptocurrency from taking over fiat. At least for now. The societal transition from fiat to cryptocurrency has inertia. That means the resources expended by fiat to buy cryptos like Bitcoin to protect itself is limited. At some point the electricity that is being wasted, or at least over-used to check and process transactions will not be optimized to creating new jobs, which is what the next generation of people will desperately need. So if the vast majority of crypto isn't in favor of innovating, what is? Well for one I'm a big BOINC fan. They are an organization that has existed since 1995 for distributed Science. They work on complex tasks like protein folding, or challenging mathematical conjectures, and break them down into work units that you can help solve with your own computer hardware. Doing the math, if we took the electricity consumption of Bitcoin at this moment and distribute it over the wattage of the best performing GPU, we would have a super computer 40 years ahead of it's time. The possibilities are endless here. Okay so the crypto part here is that you can in fact earn cryptocurrency with BOINC through Gridcoin a currency that has existed since 2015. If you look at the Gridcoin price it's not fairing well compared to Bitcoin, but hold on a second. It doesn't have to be Gridcoin, it could be any currency that does this. It makes sense to reward distributed Science and that idea can't be killed off. You see if a cryptocurrency like Gridcoin were to take off, it would be a threat to fiat; in particular the fiat rich who can buy the most Bitcoin right now. All the news you've ever watched, all the products, and cryptos advertised to you at this point are more than likely to have a fiat agenda that isn't in your favor unless you're protecting your fiat investments. Now as I've stated above there is inertia with the transition from fiat to crypto. Some of you reading this far (kodos to you for being open minded enough to anther opinion) might be very against what I'm stating. Just know that I know where you're coming from. We live in a world where fiat currency still has the highest market share, and that you've been trained your entire life to protect it, even creating and investing in cryptocurrencies that do that for you without knowing it.
With regards to the delisting itself, at the very least we must respect that Bittrex is an exchange and an exchange is a business and businesses have the freedom to make their own decisions without an explanation. Unless they decide to enlighten us on their rationale, we are left to draw our own based on their public comments on delisting found here. That is the system in which we operate. It is neither good nor bad. It just is. However, if you do not agree with the system in which you operate, change the system, build an alternative, innovate for your own needs. This is a driving principle of open systems, open-source organization and development, and distributed ledger technology. Anyone can use the tools available to innovate. There is no need to seek permission. Let's look at the quintessential example of an open system: the internet. The internet created a protocol for global communication and exchange of information. It was implemented as an open system. Ideas, business, culture, technology, whatever; no one needed to ask permission to build anything they wanted on the internet. Some people innovated on scales of a few -- a group of friends making a geocities site to share ASCII art -- while others innovated on scales of billions. It made no difference. Open-source communities continued the legacy of the open internet. Without seeking permission, people built on the work of others in order to innovate for their own needs. People built for themselves instead of for the strategic goals of a larger entity. People built with passion. They built things of soul. DLT is a result of this legacy. Its initial tech, the Bitcoin blockchain, was implemented as an open system. All permissionless blockchains are implemented as open systems. No one needs to seek permission in order to participate, to run a node, to change the code, to build, to innovate. Gridcoin is such a system. The people that participate do so for their own reasons, without permission, to foster change for their own reasons. They build with passion because they build with purpose. They build with purpose because there is a change they'd like to see or use. They build with Gridcoin because it offers a means to their end. I cannot speak for anyone but myself, however from the people I have met over my years in this community, I am confident when I say that most of these sought after changes are systemic. We live in a world of closed scientific, economic, and macro systems. We want to build alternatives to these systems. Gridcoin and the larger blockchain ecosystem offers everyone the tools, opportunity, and community to open these systems to the levels of innovation open systems historically encourage. All anyone needs to do is learn to use them.

Edit: For those of you downvoting this post. You will never ever flatten it out completely. It will always be a bump in the road everyone will notice not matter how small you make it. Distributed Science will always be an idea, it will always exist. There's no stopping it.
The core developers are pleased to present the 22.214.171.124 Elizabeth milestone leisure release. This is a leisure release primarily aimed at non-mandatory items and bug fixes leading up to the Fern mandatory milestone release. This release also enables us to whitelist teams other than Gridcoin as a stepping stone for the implementation of no team requirement in Fern. Enjoy! https://github.com/gridcoin-community/Gridcoin-Research/releases/tag/126.96.36.199 Changelog...
Add freedesktop.org desktop file and icon set #1438 (@a123b)
. Well folks the day has finally come. Gridcoin's newest mandatory, 188.8.131.52, CBR is here. Betsy is ready for showtime!
184.108.40.206 is a mandatory update for all users. This means you must update your wallet before the hard fork date or you will be left behind. The hard fork is set at block 1,420,000. This is approximately 20 days from now. We expect the hard fork to occur on either November 7th or 8th. Please update before then!
The biggest change in 4.0 is, of course our new block version, v10. This brings CBR (constant block rewards) to Gridcoin. Instead of earning 1.5% APR from Proof of Stake, every block will instead be worth a static 10 GRC. This change follows network consensus through three seperate polls with the aim to increase network difficulty, and by extension, increase the strength and security of the Gridcoin blockchain.
If you wish to see resources about how to optimize your staking for CBR, please see this excellent post by core developer @jamescowens.
