RE: HOLD Your GRC - the Research Coin! We have a Long Way to Go!

in #gridcoin5 years ago

You can buy it on bittrex, poloniex,, c-cex. Or you can "mine" it by running BOINC. Have a look at to learn more about how to get started.



As a PhD researcher, every time I see someone do this, it makes me so, so incredibly happy. Mining sucks! You earn Gridcoin by helping humanity.

So @dutch, what term do you prefer:
Crunching, BOINC, or something else entirely?

Crunching, researching, BOINCing - all great. Just not mining, because it has those POW connotations.

That makes sense. You don't want people to confuse Gridcoin with a Poof of Work system that wastes power instead of a Proof of Research system.

Even 'mine' is great, because it makes people go "Hm, why is that in quote marks?".

Yeah I agree, I find myself using "mine" sometimes because it makes more sense to new users.
