The Gridcoin Fireside
Tonight! July 18th at 8:00pm EDT
The Gridcoin Fireside is a participatory podcast brought to you by the Gridcoin community. It is intended to introduce and explore DLT, cryptocurrency, and crypto-economics from a science oriented perspective.
The audience is welcome to participate through voice-comms or via the discord text chat.
Join us every Thursday at 8:00pm EDT on the Gridcoin discord server.
Permissionless blockchains are cryptographically secured and transparent digital ledgers of data; Financial data, contribution data, file data -- the journey into the possibilities has only just begun.
At the same time, experts are often vetted through a process assigned to a trusted keeper of a social ledger that is, all too often, fairly opaque.
Join us tonight as we discuss the potential of using a permissionless blockchain to decentralize the power to define an expert.
How would a system of permissionless expertise operate?
How would it free experts from undesired positions of authority?
How would it give countless people access to the world of progress and production and unleash a tidal wave of discourse, equality, education, and innovation?
This week @delta1512 introduces us to computational driven protein folding. Protein folding is a novel science that provides a means to cure disease and create new super materials. Because proteins are awesome.
Folding is the process where you take the strand that makes up the protein and model it into a different shape. This shape is very important because it defines what the protein does and whether it will fall apart later on.
To learn more, check out the project brief post linked above, or join us live tonight on The Gridcoin Fireside.
See you soon!
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.
