Gridcoin Hangout #003
A massive shout out to the BeyondBitcoin community & @officialfuzzy for providing the Gridcoin community a room in their mumble server for free.
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.

Past episode details
- The second Gridcoin Hangout had an attendance of approx 11 individuals, the majority of whom were from the Gridcoin community.
- Link to soundcloud channel
- #002 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?
The first Gridcoin Hangout lasted 2.5 hours of recorded time, with 40 mins beforehand (to get rid of nerves & introduce yourself) and a couple unrecorded hours after the hangout completed (for more casual communication).
The second Gridcoin Hangout lasted approx 3 hours, hopefully we can reduce this to a couple hours of official recorded time in the future.

Can we discuss anything?
It's advisable to stay generally on topic, users are distributed around the world so they may not share the same views regarding controversial topics not related to Gridcoin/BOINC/Cryptocurrency & nobody wan't to be tuning into an argument.
