Project Details

Gridcoin is an open-source blockchain that mints and distributes cryptocurrency in relation to the processing power a network participant directs toward datadriven 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.

Contribution Details

Translation Overview

This is the first out of 2 parts (as the Gridcoin Whitepaper is pretty small). It is pretty hard to translate it into Greek though, but I'm going to pull through! I've done harder ones (and worse ones *Looks at the Steemit Whitepaper*)

Project Overview

@dr-frankenstein (one of the DaVinci Translations Staff) approached me and asked me if our team could give the Gridcoin Whitepaper some higher priority. So I'm taking a little time off of Node.js! Gridcoin is using BOINC's crediting system to reward the participants with actual cryptocurrency.

I'll stop boring you with these for now. Let's get on with the specifics of this contribution.


The project is being translated from English to Greek. I'm a native Greek and because of my job (programmer) English is a "must learn" language.

In this session

As I was saying earlier in the post, this is the first part of the Gridcoin Whitepaper Translation. The total wordcount is 2764 words, there are around 250 words that are untranslatable (links, actual words like blockchain, proof-of-stake, etc) and this brings us to around 2500 words. The first translation part is 1253 words (minus 8% for untranslatable words, to a total of 1152). The Whitepaper is now at 45%, subject to @ruth-girl's approval.

tl;dr version

Gridcoin is a blockchain that rewards BOINC contributors with actual cryptocurrency. It user Proof-of-Stake, so that it will have minimal impact on a user's resources, in order to direct those resources to BOINC. If you don't know what is BOINC, and you've been clicking all those BOINCs in my post to learn more, I'm sorry, I couldn't resist! Click here to learn about BOINC (this is the actual BOINC website, no tricks this time).

I have translated 1253 words (-8% for duplicates and untranslated words = ~1152 words) for a total of 1152 words out of 2764 words. This brings the Whitepaper translation to a level of 45%.

Thank you everyone for taking your time to read about my contribution. Big thanks to the @utopian-io and @davinci.witness teams for making this possible, and also to the rest of the people of the Greek Translation Team that I'm proud to be part of:

Thank you for your 55th contribution to the Davinci-Utopian translation project @dimitrisp!
This was the 1st part of the Gridcoin Whitepaper project.

A short break from Node.js and Gridcoin Whitepaper is a project quite demanding, as it is a whitepaper, meaning it contains terminology and you need to be careful and focused while working on it. In this part you did very well and managed to accurately translate almost half of the English text. 3 mistakes is all I’ve spotted in your more than 1100 words text, an extra word that shouldn’t be there, a spelling error and a wrong ending. All in all, your writing style was fitting, your language was clear and easy to follow.

Your contribution post is also very nice. You included all the basic details and a short description of the project and the current session, but I would like to see some work samples, not for me actually, but for the ones who would read your contribution, so that they can get a taste of the project.

In general, it was a very good contribution as translation and presentation post are very good in all aspects.

Well done, @dimitrisp!
