Gridcoin needs more marketing.

I've been quite heavily pushing it on reddit, and we've only got 50 suscribers on there.
Reddit is a great way of establishing a community for a cryptocurrency; we should really try that angle.

But in the mean time, people have successfully reached out to boincstats to get them to accept gridcoin.
We should next contact EVERY boinc project directly, and ask if they'll accept gridcoin donations, and for them to put a gridcoin donation button up on their pages. We'll donate a bunch of grc to them, and their regular users will ALL see gridcoin on the official project pages and we'll get the core boinc users flooding to us in droves.

What we could also do, is go to the major boinc team forums and post that they can offset their electricity costs by participating in cpu mining boinc at the bare minimum, and go further with gpu mining.


edit:
On another hand, could someone elaborate on why we need beacons in the first place?
We've got the gridcoin team stats online, is it just a second layer of verification that the work is getting performed?
And what's happening to these grc being used as beacons? My beacons are about 1GRC in size, usually going to similar addresses..

Can we raise funds or get people to volunteer to do giveaways on reddit and twitter?  I've seen very successful giveaways on twitter by asking people to 1) retweet and 2) Change their profile picture to the gridcoin logo. Everyone starts seeing the logo everywhere and it goes viral.  I've got a couple thousand twitter followers that follow me for crypto news and I would be glad to retweet it without the chance of winning.

The Gridcoin linux wallet has a fatal error that needs to be resolved before it can be fully implemented on AllCrypt.

AllCrypt uses RPC calls to communicate with the wallets. The function getblock, which takes a hash as a argument, and returns data about the block in question, is completely broken.

On the command line, some blocks return data - but the data seems like it could be wrong.

Other blocks return various errors:
gridcoind getblock 87940ec2e76b5981d1454ea53de8fa3c0fac4b1c683f72971a74ea8f78751046
error: {"code":-1,"message":"Block number out of range."}

However, I got that hash with:
gridcoind getblockhash 74001
87940ec2e76b5981d1454ea53de8fa3c0fac4b1c683f72971a74ea8f78751046

Also:
gridcoind getblock b228595e0676536b5eed64ad079d8046ea7ed5cb27d94a2c24018b60ec945d59
error: Error parsing JSON:b228595e0676536b5eed64ad079d8046ea7ed5cb27d94a2c24018b60ec945d59

It's completely borked.

Also, when issuing the command line for:
gridcoind getblock 3acbe7fae017d900a0957038dce03c48b5d4458cabd79ad809a194fed9bf2154

It returns what APPEARS to be info for block 3?
{
    "hash" : "d39f406fc1e83823f0af3feccecf97439b8c418340fae92cb32de2a0b0d882f7",
    "confirmations" : 75296,
    "size" : 438,
    "height" : 3,
    "version" : 2,
    "merkleroot" : "8e192930415caa67236c9facd54d5cb64080d340dc2d9db7f06901044727cafc",
    "tx" : [
        "8e192930415caa67236c9facd54d5cb64080d340dc2d9db7f06901044727cafc"
    ],
    "time" : 1381979271,
    "nonce" : 73673216,

And when using the RPC call to check that same block, it errors out with: (I had to put spaces in the damn site keeps putting it in a code block)

Request error: A r r a y  = > -1 [message] = > value is type str, expected int
Which is completely wrong because a block hash cannot be an INT.

The linux Gridcoin wallet is completely unusable as it stands on AllCrypt. If this coin is on another exchange - we have NO idea how they are doing it unless maybe their wallets are on windows? (What??)


Dear Allcrypt-


The problem is we have 3 commands for Gridcoin, getblock, getblockbyhash and getblockhash.

Getblockbyhash 178bca9db419ef349b040f92e960a7c05914949d4f7f5e6a7228266069f502cd returns the info your RPC is looking for, but our getblock 1 returns the information you are receiving.


What version of the wallet are you running, windows or Linux?  I may be able to change the commands back to the way they are in bitcoin.


Grid


Linux. And if this is going to be on an exchange it absolutely has to have more than those three commands. Just off the top of my head we use: listtransactions, listtransactionssince, getinfo, getbalance, gettransaction, move, and god knows how many others.

In the future instead of completely changing how the wallet works, for it to actually be compatible with other software, ADD new commands - don't change the way standard commands work. We have 42 other wallets that all work according to that standard.

PM me once you have something worked out.

That's cool, just as an FYI, we ADDED a command to the already existing commands and renamed an existing command.

I will put the original commands back the way they were, but its not going to be tonight or tomorrow, so take it easy for a while and Ill let you know when its working.


Thanks!

Ive got some bad news!  We're being hacked.
 
Part of the reason I delayed scrypt sleep was because I saw forks yesterday, the other reason is pool incompatibility.  Either way we have it off now and things are simpler.

The real reason everyones wallet is "rescanning" every time you open it is the fraudulent activity on the network.
 
Also, the real reason we have forks:  Starting @ 9AM yesterday, someone with a lot of hash power has been running a fraudulent client and solving blocks.  I'm compiling an emergency release now to help stop it.

 
We are going to need to get everyone to upgrade ASAP as this new version lowers the block reward back down to 150 and shuts off most of the cpu miner rewards.  The hacker is attempting to pay himself ALL of the max block payments for every block (1500 grc) and since the boinc hash is missing, all the clients are rejecting the blocks causing forks; but the payments are going through AFTER the block is over 5 blocks old, because we allow old blocks into the chain to prevent sync issues (ie the assumption was a block wont be accepted if it is fraudulent, but if it is older than 5 blocks old it is accepted).  This means some blocks that are hacked are being accepted by our nodes, and then that node sits out of sync for 5 more blocks while other nodes pick up the slack.
 
More info coming.

I've just upgraded on one machine. While waiting for sync (76419 of 76665, 11 hours behind, feels stalled), I looked at the first page to check for any changes. Great coin logo, if anyone hasn't seen it yet. Anyway, I noticed this:

------------ snip -------------

Sample gridcoin.conf
rpcuser=username
rpcpassword=password
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
rpcport=9332
server=1
poolmining=false
gen=0
PORTS
RPC Port: 9778
RPC Port (testnet):  19778

---------- end snip ---------

which makes it look like PORTS (upper case section) is part of the conf file. I don't think that's the intended effect, and I imagine the apparent conflict between "rpcport=9332" and "RPC Port: 9778" could use an explanation.

Mandatory Upgrade:
Version 2.0.0.0/9.0:

- Incremented network protocol version to 72000
- Removed cpuminer payment system

To upgrade if you are in safe mode:

Go to the desktop and copy a shortcut of "c:\program files (x86)\gridcoin\grcrestarter.exe" to your desktop.
Edit the shortcut, rename it "Upgrade GRC", and modify the Target textbox to:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Gridcoin\GRCRestarter.exe" upgrade

If you do not sync to block 76785+, rebuild the block chain.

Do a get getinfo to ensure protocol version is 72000.
