Bounties Are Over
Bounty 1: Image
We received several submissions, but they are all very focused on Gridcoin and less so on the podcast. We are going to go with a commissioned piece that will let us coordinate directly with the artist. That said, everyone that submitted is getting GRC! Also, keep an eye out on the Gridcoin marketing repo for the headers which will be free to use by anyone.
for your submissions!
Bounty 2: Intro/Outro
Claimed by terminet3! Expect future episodes (not immediately) to have the audio in the recorded uploads. You can hear more of terminet3's work on the Gridcoin hangouts as well!
What is Gridcoin?
Gridcoin is a multi-incentive open-source blockchain. Incentive one, stake rewards, rewards participants for securing the ledger through a proof-of-stake protocol. Incentive two, research rewards, rewards participants for contributing to approved projects hosted on the distributed computing infrastructure, BOINC.
BOINC, the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing, hosts major institutional computing projects such as IBM’s World Community Grid, SETI, and data from the Large Hadron Collider, alongside projects developed by students, enthusiasts, mathematicians, researchers, and citizen scientists.
