The Fireside Chat 24 - Manual Reward Claims (MRC)
Tonight! September 6th, at 8:00pm EST, Midnight UTC
Join us every Thursday at 8:00pm EST, Midnight UTC on the Gridcoin discord server for discussions on Gridcoin, cryptocurrency, blockchain, and DELTA.
This Week (Tonight!)
This week we begin to explore the finer details of Manual Reward Claims (MRC) logistics and economics. What if a user could simply push a button and receive their rewards? Why would we want this? What security would be needed? What economics would be involved? How would MRC change the larger Gridcoin UX and ecosystem?
See you soon!
Like what we do at the fireside? We happily accept GRC donations.
What is Gridcoin?
Gridcoin is an open-source blockchain that mints and distributes cryptocurrency in relation to the processing power a network participant directs toward data-driven analysis and scientific discovery. Currently, the Gridcoin blockchain is secured through a proof-of-stake protocol and monitors processing contributions to 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.
