I have 2 rigs mining for over a week now and I have not had that problem yet. But others have reported this exact same situation.

This coin is going to be amazing!

@OP if you changed the topic to more to reflect what this coin does, it might get more views.

Yea Conqueror PM'ed me and I told him I was having the same issue with the client I had running on my laptop for the giveaway. Turns out it's because of the version. I still had Mining Module Version 4 whereas the newest MSI client was Version 10. Anyways, deleted everything but my wallet and conf, installed the new version and worked fine Smiley

Ye I agree, the thread title needs to be changed to reflect the Gridcoin's purpose.

You can currently mine both GRC and XRP at the same time. Ripple Labs is running an XRP giveaway based on contributions to the World Community Grid, a BOINC project.

Details at https://www.ripplelabs-wcgxrp.com

The giveaway exchange rate is 1000 XRP for every 5000 WGC points (714 BOINC points), which at current rates is roughly a $10 USD value each time you cash in your WCG points.

As long as you're already mining GRC and running BOINC, why not pick up some free XRP for no extra effort?

Hey,

I like the sound of this project, I love anything that strives towards efficiency. I would love to understand how this works at a high level. I am presuming that the PoW and BOINC work are separate but enforced as part of the protocol?

If this project got more awareness I see a lot of potential.

I want to make the world better than I found it

Are you on windows?  If so check your system tray, it's probably there.  (near the bottom right corner, on your taskbar)

Lol had that happen to me lots of time with guiminer. If you're able to maximize it by right clicking on it on the task bar, and then drag it out of max view it should fix it.
