hey @jringo thank you for this series. I've just noticed a serious boost in the growth of users per day around january. Do you think it is related to this particular holiday period of the year? Was it like this last year?


The user growth is related to the steep GRC price increase during this period which has attracked a lot of new members. Unfortunately the numbers have been slowing down since the peek in January.


I agree with @parejan. Bitcoin breaking 10k (and GRC following to new ATH) brought a lot of new people to crypto (and GRC).

Thanks for the update!

Thnx for another update @jringo good work!

Nice that exchanges are accepting gridcoin again

That's some good news.

Where sell GRC without KYC/AML?
