GRIDCOIN - STATE of the NETWORK

Report #20 - August 20th, 2018


Welcome to the 20th Gridcoin State of the Network Report. The SotN Report is a fortnightly report organized by @parejan and @jringo. It compiles useful news and statistics for the Gridcoin community.

DEVELOPMENT

Last week's development update. Thank you @barton26!

Beyond the development update linked above, a lot of the discussion these past weeks has revolved around optimization and stake-splitting. Stake-splitting is becoming increasingly likely to be a short term reality due to some UTXO optimization work by @jamescowens. More on UTXO optimization is found in his post, here.

@ravonn has been working on identifying possible sync optimization paths and has potentially reduced full chain sync time from 20+ hours to 2-3 hours. You can read more on his work here.

NEWS

Design work continues for the new GUI, so if you have any suggestions or ideas do reach out on the development thread linked below.

Development Thread

Gridcoin is taking place in a BOINC team challenge running from August 27th to August 31st. The project is WCG. To participate, crunch WCG on team Gridcoin during those days. Happy crunching!

MARKETING & OUTREACH

@cm-steemit recently attended the 2018 BOINC workshop to discuss Gridcoin alongside other BOINC development topics. If you see him around give him a nod. You can read more and listen to his presentation by following the link below.

One thing I've noticed about the graphs is that the linear trends should not be taken too seriously. For example, the minimum time between superblocks changed levels from 0 to 25, while the linear regression line just gets a shallower slope over time, reflecting a nonexistent trend.

I told @jringo this a couple SoTN posts ago. It's been bothering me too :P

Thanks for your input @rufusfirefly / @barton26.

Reflecting on your comments, I will remove the trendlines from the next SotN.
