Thank you for the addition of the newbie compensation. It is the last phase. Development has been active and a wonderful group of volunteers testing numerous fixes.


all those forking, exchanges and third-party wallet issues related to forking and other problems make me much less enthusiastic about the entire GRC project ...


Don't be so gloomy, there is an active development and community behind it.

The forkage will pass.


I agree... with both of you.

Active developer / engaged community member has different point of view than Sunday member. It's like race cars and daily cars. Race cars are in the garage every day. But if you buy a nice daily car and have to take it to the garage every two weeks... enthusiasm quickly changes into frustration. Race car engineers have more patience, but even they will be disappointed if they miss consecutive races as car didn't move from the start line...
