You can do pool mining for now pool.gridcoin.us or you can wait till the cpu mining is upgraded to make some security upgrades.

Just looking for a confirmation at this point.  As of the v2.0.0.2 Update, if I don't have a GPU capable of being used in CGMiner, I can no longer mine GRC?  And, if that's the case, is this a permanent condition going forward?

Alright, I guess I'll give the pool a shot for now.

EDIT: Never mind, this is a non-solution. The pool only interfaces with CGMiner in the wallet, and will not mine with CPUMiner.

Great concept. You have my support; It give's me a real reason to start mining. The benefit I am providing to BOINC is a kick in the rear to start up right now!

Looking forward to seeing the progression of this coin in the long term.

The main volume for GRC is going on C-CEX and they just Tweeted

"We have several complains about GRC transactions. All TxID we were given are returning "Invalid or non-wallet transaction id". GRC dev aware".

Any update about this? I think the market value at the moment is still very influenced by this developing problems recently. I honestly think the idea is brilliant, I hope to see soon a more active developing and updates about all problems solved. Twitter is fundamental and the account should be pushing more.

The coin is also good position on Cryptorush (keep voting) and Mintpal, could be on those in a couple of weeks, but whoever arrives to this topic (the main place to get info about the coin) must read something from official dev saying that all problems are sorted Smiley

There seems to be an imminent hard fork in the development of gridcoin the developers are talking about making cpu mining also calculate a cpu only algorithm diverting users processors away from boinc Sad

What is being proposed is 1 thread that will run a cpu algo not the entire processor!!!!!!!

Yeah, but that's still one thread too many. What if I've only got a single core processor? You're adding unnecessary bloat to cpu mining. And creating an arms race for cpu mining this algorithm instead of contributing towards boinc.

Right now everything is under discussion so we have not finalized anything. I would say at this point security is going to be first priority from now on.

Alright, so what will this algorithm determine? Whether or not my boinc points get rewarded? That's hardly fair to the lower power cpu miners.

CPU mining will be back and stronger than ever, I had several rigs CPU mining and I was really enjoying it, once we get a bullet proof security on it we will be kicking ass again.

I hope you guys understand that it may not be possible to have 100% boinc cpu mining because security is the issue then. As we saw some f*ckers came and used it to exploit 0.5M grc. I know that Rob would also want to have 100% of cpu time towards boinc but it may not be possible. As Rob said it could be possible to use 1 thread with about 10% processor time to calculate algo. So with 1-core processor you would still have 90% for boinc.

I had a graphic designer create this Infographic for Gridocoin. You can use this freely and post it on reddit or other forums to showcase what Gridcoin is all about.

Very nice - lots of work building that!

Suggestions for next draft: "protein" is spelled incorrectly in at least three places, the acronym "BOINC" appears incorrectly in various forms, for example sometimes all lower case and sometimes with just the "B" capitalized.

I realize the gridcoin.conf blurb is copied directly from the first page of this thread, but I don't think it is correct as written - (PORTS stuff). I posted about this earlier, but no replies yet, so perhaps I'm mistaken.

When/where can we buy coffee mugs and t-shirts with the new coin logo? Do they take crypto?           Wink
