Went to lunch, came back and it looks like it is in sync.  Took a few hours to get those first blocks.


Any info on why the burn site says don't use until 16th but people are saying they have done it?  Are we still suppose to wait?


I would suggest hold on burning the coins until the sync issues in the chain are dealt with.

May we help you somehow?
Maybe excluding some ips in our .conf files would cause syncing with the proper blockchain only? And leaving the wallets open till weekend would help others sync with the proper chain?

My wallet says: 3565 of 3565 blocks, synced, am I on good chain?

You should compare your highest blocknumber with the one listed at http://explorer.gridcoin.us
or find our active community board at https://cryptocointalk.com/forum/464-gridcoin-grc/

When should my coins arrive? I've been computing on boinc since more than a week, and I've changed my team to gridcoin team yesterday.

I think me and Traderman are the only ones reading here. Perhaps cross post in the long thread.

Who is the dev?

My opinion is that the problem starts when there's PoR and scrypt PoW running in the same time. I think that a better idea would be to have pure PoR or PoS/PoR, because it's safer. Maybe instead of repairing blockchain every day (or twice a day), it would be better to finish PoW and switch to pure PoR (or rather PoR/PoS) now? And I wonder if the PoR block minting is a good idea (let's compare it to curecoin, where the research makes no blocks but a normal trasfer hashed by asics, here it should be hashed by PoS). By this ocasion the reward algorithm could be improved: no halvings, but more proportional amount of coins to the amount of points in long term.

PoW is only running on classic, PoR is the new chain with the converted coins. Are you on CCT yet?

You can start already, please follow the instruction on the burn page carefully!

I have asked Rob to remove the text saying you cannot use it yet.

By this ocasion the reward algorithm could be improved: no halvings, but more proportional amount of coins to the amount of points in long term.

We spent almost 4 months discussing, voting as a community, and testing the Proof-of-Research wallet.  Most of the information about testing and discussion is contained in these threads:
https://cryptocointalk.com/topic/13792-testers-wanted-gridcoinstake/
https://cryptocointalk.com/topic/16940-proof-of-research-and-economic-variables/
and starting about page 270:
https://cryptocointalk.com/topic/1331-new-coin-launch-announcement-grc-gridcoin/

In all there are well over 150 pages of in depth discussion that lead to the current launch of Proof-of-Research.

The new wallet is pure Proof-of-Research plus Stake now.  Only the wallet in retirement uses scrypt Proof-of-Work and the community decided that 6 months was a sufficient amount of time to convert the Classic coins to the new Research coins.  For the next 6 months there will be 2 wallets, the Classic wallet that runs on Proof-of-Work with a reduced reward and the Research wallet that runs on Proof-of-Research plus Stake.  For the most up to date information visit the wiki at:

Great! I didn't understand it properly before Smiley
One more question - my world community grid shows:
Gridcoin       10/14/2014 - Current       0:002:06:48:15       9,964
