PSA - Gridcoin WINDOWS Wallets, Please Update Your Wallets To Help the Network Stake Superblocks Reliably!

in gridcoin •  last year

UPDATE: A new wallet version has now been released. Please upgrade to v3.5.9.7 if you are running a Windows client.

A new wallet update has been released, which includes fixes with the aim of reliably staking Superblocks using Windows clients. Please update your client to version ASAP, which can be done from within the wallet's update menu. While this update is not fork mandatory, the more clients that are running, the quicker we should see a new Superblock.

A word from the original developer, Rob Halförd, on the current release:

It looks like we may finally see some improvement with the current superblock situation: The popular hash of d996 is gaining popularity quickly (execute neuralreport). We will probably stake one within a few hours.

All 24 projects are in d996, and the average magnitude is 44 (IE within range) and has an average project RAC of about 125000, so I see no reason for it to get rejected.

To clarify some of the misinformation that has been going around, no-one has lost any POR rewards at all, regardless of what project you have been crunching. The POR payout window until research payout is lost is 6 months, not 14 days. Please update your wallet, and continue to crunch your project of choice as normal.

To keep up to date with any further developments of the Superblock (or other Gridcoin news), I would suggest you join the official development channel on Slackchat, or the Github repo. Both of these are entirely transparent to everyone who wants to be involved.

If you have any questions, drop them below and I will do my best to help.
