What is Gridcoin?

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 (Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing) hosted work, which can be virtually any kind of distributed computing process (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. It's free, and harnesses the unused clock cycles from processors and graphics cards to attempt to cure cancer/aids/ebola/malaria, map the milkyway, crack enigma codes, etc..

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.

Why is Gridcoin holding this tournament?

The Gridcoin network hopes to be one of the first few cryptocurrencies to be integrated into Peerplays once it has launched; the Gridcoin network has approx 12k users and the BOINC network has 4 million registered users, we could bring a lot of users to the Peerplays network.

So I don't have to click anything now to roll the dice or whatever?


Have to wait for all 20 people to join first.


You need to wait till 20 have joined, then you need to play rock paper scissors. So keep an eye on the game filling up.


there are 20 in it but I can't play anywhere?


No. I think now I just missed the game when I was eating.

I did a different one and the other user was not responding, so I think that happened to me here.

Thanks for putting this on - super intrigued by PeerPlays:

lol whoops i dont have ny testnet grc address im out of town haha. will tonight :)


You should be using your production GRC addr, not testnet.

A bit more details would be appreciated. Like: Do I just need to sign up or do I need to tranfer steem or GRC (from testnet?) to it?

Especially for those who not know Gridcoin a few more links, like to the wallet, would be good, too ;)


You don't need a Gridcoin testnet wallet nor do you need to pay anything to play - this is the peerplays testnet & you're given 100 tokens to test the system with.

In order to play, you need to sign up to the testnet website yes.

I'll add more links to the Gridcoin website.

Edit: I've added a description about Gridcoin, and there are instructions for users to post both their GRC (production) address in this thread for rewards, and their Peerplays testnet username (to prove they participated).

Seems like 20 users is a bit too much, it takes a bit long to star a new game. However the more the funnier :-)


Took us a while to get 20 users in the game, but it worked out quite well :)

Edit: Sent the 10 GRC anyways ;D

That is the game underway! Click the 'Join' button!

8 users failed to provide their addresses, 100 GRC was rained in IRC instead.


Issues raised by community:

  • When you were waiting for your next game, of if you lost (with no further games) you were presented with a 'no "in progress" game' message, which prove confusing. A more verbose message would be excellent, especially if you've got more games to compete in.

  • There were some strange single player games shown in the overview?

  • It would be cool for there to be a spectator mode, especially if you lost or if you are a non-participating tournament organizer.

Hey, sorry but you missed the tournament.

Try out the testnet peerplays anyways? There's a few open games at the moment.

Have fun everyone and enjoy your Peerplays & Gridcoin winnings!

This is awesome!

cm-steem - Do you mind if I copy aspects of this format for another(s) tournaments? I would credit you and give shout outs to Gridcoin...

I would like to do this for other coins in order to get others to check out Peerplays.


Go for it, the more users we can get on the Peerplays testnet the better! :)
