in #gridcoin4 years ago (edited)

The 17th sprint challenge (from 20 total) by the FORMULA BOINC team will take place on:  

  • 10/20/2017 05:00 (UTC)  - 10/23/2017 04:59 (UTC) 
  •    with BOINC project TN-Grid
  • 21 BOINC teams joined this competition
  • team Gridcoin got 1st place in the 16th challenge

about "16h before challenge: no WUs anymore, 89k in progress", see also:

  • BOINC admin: "The way we produce work is rather complicated (computationally speaking), at the moment this is the maximum pace we can achieve."

It seems around the time this challenge ended, there began a decline in offered/processed WUs:
