The Fireside Chat 23 - Gridcoin in the Blockchain Ecosystem

Tonight! August 30th, 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 is the beginning of a series on the bigger picture. We know what Gridcoin is when it comes to our immediate surroundings, but what about when it comes to the larger Blockchain/Crypto ecosystem? What is our focus? How do we relate to other science oriented blockchains and tokens? How do we interact with BOINC as it evolves? What can we do for science and society in addition to computing contributions?

Tonight -- Part 1: How do we relate to other science oriented blockchains and tokens?

Some reading to give you an idea on where we're coming from.

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.
