Gridcoin Community Hangout #026

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

025 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 #025:

9PM GMT 18th MAR 2017.

Compare 9PM GMT to your time zone!.

TN-Grid has solved its problems with work units. New work units are now available and are running well.

I'm sure many will agree that we still have a desperate need for a Greylist.

When there is any work unit modification or work to be done on equipment a project will be down for a while.

We need to be able to take this into account and give the project some leeway to do whatever work is required.

I probably won't be able to join this weekend, but in case anyone is interested here's what has happened in the dev branch since the last hangout.

Also a shoutout to everyone who helps the development by providing test data, doing code reviews and leaving feedback on github.

I've created a Gridcoin Haskell script for tracking sequentially staked blocks on an individual CPID basis, should be good for analysis.
