The Fireside Chat 20 - The Importance of the Superblock
Tonight! Thursday, August 9th, 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!)
The Gridcoin superblock is a unique tool that aggregates and store data pertaining to participant computation contributions. It is the decentralized version of what might otherwise require centralized management. It replaces the middleman Gridcoin helps push to the side. How does it work? How can it be improved? What else can it do?
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.
