Out of the kindess of your heart, to help out my lowly self, while not able to mine with my current nvidia card,

Can you give me some Gridcoins, and I will support gridcoin in some small ways. Smiley

Dupee-
We did successfully create a Linux version that builds and mines (tested it yesterday), however it currently does not support our new block format that is coming in the next 3 days, so we are not going to release it.

One thing you can do is run windows in a virtual machine in Linux.

Can you at least change the thread title to reflect that this coin has bionic built in?  (pop3 email too!) It would probably help this coin get a lot more recognition. (which it deserves!)

I think its good that the coin is flying under the radar for the most part at this stage.  It will get huge once pool mining is implemented.  Enjoy the solo mining while it lasts..

Yes that could be the case. But I for one hope it gets huge because we need all that power on the Boinc network.

@Rumlazy, @Traderman, thread name changed
(Limited by max characters!).
Thank you all for the great ideas.

@Traderman; No surprises, just the Expanded block header to hold
boinc projects, CPUMiner hash,
and the new security information.

The main issue is we will have to have everyone
upgrade relatively soon so the network synchronizes
the new format amongst each other so we keep in place. (Will announce it here and on cryptocointalk ASAP).

We will put out an upgrade to let this change settle
in before enforcing mined blocks that miss this info
(so as not break everyone at the same time)
but shortly after will start enforcing the new security
in the chain for new mined blocks.

Regarding R&D, recently I have been compiling a list of distributed
(official BOINC XML APIs)
that provide avg credit information for non-GPU users
through a special succinct internet interface not designed for web users.
 I have uploaded my GRC wallet
address (as a boinc username), and started a team called "Gridcoin".  In beta,
we are looking into the possibility of
adding a CPU-mining pool for non
gpu-users who want to participate.  We're just testing this
out to see how viable it is. The PoW is done by Berkeley.
The credits are not stored on a single server, they are
stored on 70 official project nodes outside of the coin.
The credit would be checked by a call to an API from
a "different" miner (the miner who solved the GPU block)
to add the Cpu credits to the pool.  The CPU pool would be paid once per day
during their "wallet hour" with an amount of 150grc divided by the cpu miners
going into a separate block and the CPU shares would be their avg daily credits earned.
  As the blocks fill up more would be paid at different
times.  The idea is this might spark a lot of interest for non-gpu users and give us a strong
user base.


Best Regards,
Rob Halford

Gridcoin,

You should add to the main page that the reward will halve every 840,000 blocks or about 4 years.  

Also, when a block explorer is created in the future, will it be possible to calculate definitively the outstanding money supply or will we have to continue to estimate (so far 2/3 max block reward)?
It would be interesting to see how close it is running to the estimates, ie the amount of BOINC utilization most miners are using on average..

Ye if we can get people with NVidia cards mining too that would be great. Definitely adds to the appeal of the coin.

I like this idea, as my nvidia graphics card is regarded as useless for mining, and I think I agree
you could get more people mining and more interested this way.
Do you think you will have instructions to help newbies like myself to learn how to get the cpu
mining working?
