Why I am Very Disappointed by the Upcoming V8 Removal of the Magnitude Component of the Gridcoin Staking Weight

in gridcoin •  2 years ago

dutch, I really appreciate the way you explain things, no offense but it seems to work along better than others explanations with my brain, lol. You should hear how I have to turn things around for my wife.

I've never really looked into the big fish of GRC, looked at their stats etc., because what would be the point, GRC is supposed to be altruistic, and now I have. I'm about to pass RHalford in one project, but he's made no movement there in a long time, merely "invested" and sat in that position. I really should have given that a think when I started, but, I was more excited to do research for research sake, and others are playing a different game. Ok, well, game on.

GRC is supposed to be altruistic

That may be the perception by some, but this has never been an official stance within the Gridcoin network. For-Profit and non-scientific projects are likely going to be a reality in the future.

he's made no movement there in a long time

Similar to the vast majority of the BOINC network, they have become inactive in crunching due to real life situational changes.

I was more excited to do research for research sake, and others are playing a different game.

You can do that without gridcoin, the introduction of gridcoin in the picture means you're playing the same game.

I have typed my response to this, like four times now, thank God for backspace, because I feel like I am forced to pretend that I did not hear that.
