After an exhaustive debate on Reddit, another stakeholder and I agreed that we should to have a poll on whether or not to continue to support Moo! Wrapper on the Gridcoin blockchain because of the non-knowledge producing nature of the project. @dutch (I think) had expressed will and ability in putting it to a vote. We wanted it to be democratic so please make it a participant poll. In addition, you might want to make sure that individual can actually vote before making it.
I am going to vote keep it for these reasons:
It provides magnitude from old/aging equipment that would otherwise become E-waste. It runs nicely on decommissioned smart phones. It is also gentle on other equipment.
It could be used as a hedge for workunits in the event that all other BOINC projects fail (unlikely) or do not have workunits. This is due to the fact it should take something like 150 years+ at current computational resource allocation levels to test all combinations. Also, it is producing a steady stream of workunits.
Reasons for de-listing:
Fails to pass mission-critical test of benefiting science in a constructive way.
Runs a brute force command that has been proven to work already.
If anyone has anything else to add please do so below.
What are the requirements to fund a poll?
Is it 100,000 GRC?
Is the GRC consumed when the poll ends?
