Hi,

did the cpu mining change since january? At that time I had to log me in on boinc with my gridcoin-adress.

Now I logged in in the project I participate (peom@home) with christopbergmann

I modified my .conf (added the email-adress I set when signing up at poem@home). Then I startet gridcoin-qt. Boinc is running, the project is running, my cpu is completely used. But in gridcoin-qt I can't access the mining-console. When I click it just nothing happens.

The debug-file says:

Gridcoin is doing a hardfork over the weekend, so you might want to wait till that clears up before starting anything!

Official statement (find here: https://cryptocointalk.com/topic/1331-new-coin-launch-announcement-grc-gridcoin/page-286) was given on our main board Cryptocointalk:

Quote
Gridcoin Classic Alert!

 

This is an important early warning message for the Classic wallet.

 

We will be hard forking the wallet client over the weekend and everyone including exchanges will need to upgrade.

 

The hard fork cannot be done at a specific block number as this change involves a protocol upgrade - that is a static piece of the wallet and cannot be changed by block number.

 

We will have the new block payment schedule in the wallet that goes in effect on Oct 20th, 2014.  So full block payments will still be paid in classic up to that date.  On the 20th the block payment drops to 10 grc and does not require as strict boinc participation level (more details on that will be available).

 

This change is necessary to prevent fraudulent compiled versions of the wallet from burning coins through the exchange system, and, obviously for the new retirement phase.

 

We are anticipating a new version of the wallet around noon tomorrow (9-27-2014) I.E. 30 hours from now.  Unix Time: 1411822800.

 

I will contact CC-ex and Poloniex over the weekend.  Feel free to post on BTCtalk.  Ill post on both sites when the version is close to being ready for release.

 

Rob

Yes your coins are safe.  You should however always backup your wallet in case of computer failed or some other problem.  As long as you have the backup you can recover your coins.  All you will need to do is run an upgrade from the wallet upon release.  You will have 6 months to convert coins when Research is released in October. This release is to setup the rules for when the switch begins.

All-

Please see this draft that we will be posting in a dedicated PR thread regarding our transition to the Proof Of Research wallet around mid October (shortly before our 1 year anniversary):

http://www.gridcoin.us/guides/gridcoinpor.pdf

This guide outlines the major differences between the existing proof of work wallet and PoR wallet.

On a high level, we will be exercising the following actions over the next month (will provide details soon):

* Hard fork required in the classic wallet around Oct 1st 2014 (this ensures higher security during the retirement phase and a diminishing block reward for its last 6 month lifespan)
  for all users and exchanges.
* Release of PoR wallet around 10-10.  Mining in the PoR wallet begins.
* Exchanges stop trading GRC classic
* Exchanges start trading GRC using the PoR wallet
* Coin burning begins - extends on for 6 months
* Coins are exchanged via a dedicated foundation site for Gridcoin PoR coins (at 10* quantity)

It is a very exciting time. 

We also started advertising on Bing and have had over 600 clicks into gridcoin.us.

Rob




All good news! What will be the new maximum supply of GRC after the fork/update? Capped or uncapped?

Cheers!

Hi,

The new decay schedule that starts on 10-20-2014 is very aggressive.  Please see the end of this document:

You have to open a support ticket on Poloniex otherwise you will not see your coins. I think due to the switchover they have instituted some kind of manual approval system or something, what bothers me about Poloniex is that their support is silent on why these delays are happening, I have inquired multiple times, but so far onle silence. For the time being I have decided to stop using them till this situation is resolved.

really glad to read this post, just one question: what do you mean whit Coin burning begins ?

Regarding coin burning - or coin exchange:

We are planning to launch the new Proof Of Research wallet on approx 10-15-2014 (we will be writing a summary and will give at least 10 days notice before mining begins).

Once we start mining the new wallet, a web site will be opened up for the foundation that contains the 31-32~ million GRC in escrow.
These classic coins will be converted to PoR coins by multiplying the original coins by a factor of 10.

All users will burn their old classic coins through the foundation site by sending the old coins to a dedicated vanity address.  They will receive coins in the new wallet automatically *10.

In this way all old classic coins will be destroyed and all users will end up with Proof Of Research coins.
The program will go on for approx 5 months to give everyone time to convert the coins.

Running the upgrade shuts down any instances of cgminer running under command prompt (observed on two Win7 machines so far). GRC used to do this but it was fixed weeks ago. No big deal, but it requires a bit of intervention when it happens. Perhaps an old fix has come undone.

All-

Please see this draft that we will be posting in a dedicated PR thread regarding our transition to the Proof Of Research wallet around mid October (shortly before our 1 year anniversary):

http://www.gridcoin.us/guides/gridcoinpor.pdf

This guide outlines the major differences between the existing proof of work wallet and PoR wallet.

On a high level, we will be exercising the following actions over the next month (will provide details soon):

* Hard fork required in the classic wallet around Oct 1st 2014 (this ensures higher security during the retirement phase and a diminishing block reward for its last 6 month lifespan)
  for all users and exchanges.
* Release of PoR wallet around 10-10.  Mining in the PoR wallet begins.
* Exchanges stop trading GRC classic
* Exchanges start trading GRC using the PoR wallet
* Coin burning begins - extends on for 6 months
* Coins are exchanged via a dedicated foundation site for Gridcoin PoR coins (at 10* quantity)

It is a very exciting time.  

We also started advertising on Bing and have had over 600 clicks into gridcoin.us.

All good news! What will be the new maximum supply of GRC after the fork/update? Capped or uncapped?

Cheers!

Hi,

The new decay schedule that starts on 10-20-2014 is very aggressive.  Please see the end of this document:

Cheers,
Rob


really glad to read this post, just one question: what do you mean whit Coin burning begins ?

Regarding coin burning - or coin exchange:

We are planning to launch the new Proof Of Research wallet on approx 10-15-2014 (we will be writing a summary and will give at least 10 days notice before mining begins).

Once we start mining the new wallet, a web site will be opened up for the foundation that contains the 31-32~ million GRC in escrow.
These classic coins will be converted to PoR coins by multiplying the original coins by a factor of 10.

All users will burn their old classic coins through the foundation site by sending the old coins to a dedicated vanity address.  They will receive coins in the new wallet automatically *10.

In this way all old classic coins will be destroyed and all users will end up with Proof Of Research coins.
The program will go on for approx 5 months to give everyone time to convert the coins.

Rob


thanks for the quick and clear answer. Just one doubt: why do you choose to use a factor of 10 and not a factor of 1?

thanks for the quick and clear answer. Just one doubt: why do you choose to use a factor of 10 and not a factor of 1?
We had some surveys and came to the agreement the 10:1 exchange ratio will decrease our inflation rate in the new wallet by 95%.
Since starting with 325,000,000 grc in the new world with an emission rate of 20 mil, to 5 mil, to 1 mil will keep inflation low - a pro for the investors.

In contrast to keeping a 1:1 distribution, our inflation rate would be 100% the first year at the current reward schedule rate.

We are also envisioning an increase in exchange value with 325mil minted, theoretically our value may rise above $1 million and spark more interest.  Obviously this is not backed with sound financial fundamentals, but the PR campaign may spark enough interest to fulfill it.  One view is that people tend to lose/forget about coins worth 10* less, until they rise in value then they want them back.  Its a measure to try to make GRC more rare over the long term.

Running the upgrade shuts down any instances of cgminer running under command prompt (observed on two Win7 machines so far). GRC used to do this but it was fixed weeks ago. No big deal, but it requires a bit of intervention when it happens. Perhaps an old fix has come undone.

Thanks, looking for it.
