Gridcoin Community Hangout #024

A massive shout out to the BeyondBitcoin community & @officialfuzzy for providing the Gridcoin community a room in their mumble server for free.

Another massive thanks to @peppernrino for editing the hangout recordings! Follow him on Steem! :D

What is Gridcoin?

Gridcoin securely rewards BOINC computation on top of Proof of Stake. Reward allocation is distributed, not centralized unlike other distributed computing related cryptocurrencies.

Where can I listen to past hangouts?

Past episode details

#023 RSVP & Topic suggestion thread

Why are we holding these hangouts?

  • A mumble conference call can provide significant advantages over communicating via forums and IRC.
  • To create opportunities to inform the public of new Gridcoin, BOINC and related services & their development progress.
  • To bridge relations between the cryptocurrency & BOINC communities.

How long will the hangout last?

If there are not many topics suggested then hangouts won't last longer than an hour, on the other hand if there are many topics suggested then the hangout may last 2-3 hours!

When the Gridcoin Community Hangouts start really picking up traction we can become more strict with allocated speaking time if need be (so you're not waiting hours to talk).

Want to suggest a topic to discuss?

Reply with your suggestions in this Steem post & order of discussion will be from highest to lowest voted suggestions.

Can we discuss anything?

It's advisable to stay generally on topic, attendees are distributed around the world so they may not (likely won't) share the same views regarding controversial topics not related to Gridcoin/BOINC/Cryptocurrency.

That said, this 'on topic' guideline fizzles away once official recording has ended & the hangout becomes a more relaxed environment.

Proposed time for Gridcoin Hangout #024:

9PM GMT 18th Feb 2017.

Compare 9PM GMT to your time zone!.

We need 100 subscribers to get a custom name (instead of random characters), it'll potentially help our search engine optimization.

How to improve the UI ?

enjoi is currently working on some suggestions, here is one:
UI suggestion

Personally, I want an UI tailored for our different groups (newbie miners, pool boys, investors, ...). Not everyone needs all to see... and ideally in concert with the startup wizzard

Waiting for more versions from enjoi :-)

I really don't like the dual UI design that BOINC uses. It feels like I'm missing out on something regardless of which mode I use. Instead, I think we should have one UI and either take inspiration from the mobile app design where only the most important information is displayed in the "main" UI, or the current approach but with a modernised design.

See Storjshare are an example of a minimalistic UI, though it can be scaled down even more.

whitelist time:

  • experiences with the newly added BOINC projects: TN-Grid, DrugDiscovery
  • any new candidates for the whitelist ?

Candidate: [email protected] --> Currently has no cryptocointalk project thread neither :S

Projects previously removed from the whitelist?

I think that there's a few other projects that have been created recently too..

There is a request to make a whitelist poll for DENIS

Denis still needs a cryptocointalk project thread, can someone create it please? :)

Amicable whitelist poll has been created:

The project admin has issued a notice regarding this poll (received by entire userbase!):

Xansons is scheduled for a Summer 2017 release, it's currently in a maintenance phase. Let's re-evaluate it when it's fully launched?
