Gridcoin Community Hangout #040

A massive shout out to the BeyondBitcoin community & @officialfuzzy for providing the Gridcoin community a room in their mumble server for free, and to @cm-steem for being such a wonderful host! :D

What is Gridcoin?

Gridcoin securely rewards BOINC computation on top of Proof of Stake. Reward allocation is distributed, not centralized unlike other distributed computing related cryptocurrencies.

Past episode details

038 RSVP & Topic suggestion thread

Why are we holding these hangouts?

  • A mumble conference call can provide significant advantages over communicating via forums and IRC.
  • To create opportunities to inform the public of new Gridcoin, BOINC and related services & their development progress.
  • To bridge relations between the cryptocurrency & BOINC communities.

How long will the hangout last?

Anywhere from 45 minutes to 4 and a half hours!

When the Gridcoin Community Hangouts start really picking up traction we can become more strict with allocated speaking time if need be (so you're not waiting hours to talk).

Want to suggest a topic to discuss?

Reply with your suggestions in this Steemit post & order of discussion will be from highest to lowest voted suggestions.

Can we discuss anything?

It's advisable to stay generally on topic, attendees are distributed around the world so they may not (likely won't) share the same views regarding controversial topics not related to Gridcoin/BOINC/Cryptocurrency.

That said, this 'on topic' guideline fizzles away once official recording has ended & the hangout becomes a more relaxed environment.

Gridcoin Hangout #040 will be held on:

September 30, 2017 @ 9pm UTC.

Compare 9pm UTC to your time zone!.

Drug Discovery @ Home will probably be added back to the whitelist after the polling ends.

Will we be joined by customminer?

We could discuss latest issues or news about:

  • Wallet/Client instability
  • Added to any new exchanges?
  • Any more exchanges to be added to?
  • Welcome new users of the hangout?
  • Do all the exchanges have the wallet online/operational?
  • New wallet/client release, yet?
  • Possible new exploit of replay attack, discussion on github.
  • Etc... maybe I will edit this post.

Thank you for the suggestions, and I'm sure he'll drop by if he has time.. but he's passed the duty onto myself and any other ops willing to help moderate/discuss topics. I'm definitely going to have to read up on the staking mechanisms and things if I hope to be as deft as @cm-steem at discussing some of the material, but I like a challenge.

I'm pretty excited about the future of Gridcoin, and the hangouts.. but we need a bit more community participation in this regard. Attendance is usually around 20 people, and that's just weird for having close to 500 users in some channels...

Post all the things, folks! Be the change! Excelsior! <3

Last recording from Jun? C'mon, hurry up.

Hi! I am a robot. I just upvoted you! I found similar content that readers might be interested in:


Good find bot. Did you see the other 38?


Interesting post :) I don't generally join these communities. Give me a good reason why this one is good :)

What is the reason for using the old, outdated Mumble over the modern, polished, free Discord ?


mumble is free... and people think discord is an eyesore. also harder to record... it relies on a bot. i'm not against it, but it's fun to happen upon other chats going on in the mumble and join in. we won't have that luxury on discord. practically nobody uses our discord right now. me, gunde, phay, openflames, and moises. that's about it for the past month. lol. if it wasn't already so hard to get a crowd going, i might be down... mostly because they have a verification process on discord, and that would help prevent spammers.

also also, we were talking about adding speechlogger or some other program fed by google asr to piggyback on mumble, to transcribe everything we are saying... not sure if the discord developers would be as welcoming as the mumble devs. that's just from a quick look though.


Upvoted because Discord is bad.
