You can get some gridcoin from uscore.net, also read: http://wiki.gridcoin.us/Main_Page#Getting_Started

Hey can anyone help me start to mining? And take me some gridcoins! Thank you so much!! my address: SDApsTPGcUNCkXqaJV7WB4QhNDJt3m3vpb

Gridcoin is in TOP5 fastest growing teams: http://boincstats.com/en/stats/-1/team/list/12/0/0

Still waisting energy on Proof-of-Work? Use your Rigs for scientific progress!

good news,  doing science instead of wasteful PoW computations will hopefully prevail.

Just imagine the computing power now put into bitcoin going into protein folding or cancer research.

Not to talk about potential commercial applications, where currency is creating by the inflation process by solving actual problems that companies/people pay money for, which would make it the first currency that is backed by something, in this case the useful work that was done to create it.

1) is there a save paper wallet for GRC ?
2) If there will be updates in the client- will the GRC on my paperwallet always be valid?   
3) If I had some GRCX in a paperwallet the would still be valid? ... I suppose not.

Thx

Yeay, the first Find @ Home user of the day with a Gridcoin Profile (cheap PR)

http://boinc.ucd.ie/

profile (with Gridcoin logo):

"I started crunch BOINC in November 2014 after I was talking to a friend about the waste of hardware that was catching dust rather than do something useful. A day later I discovered the possibility to get paid for the contributions I do for BOINC:
If you are a member of the Gridcoin BOINC team, you can receive Gridcoin as a reward for your BOINC contribution. These coins are exchangeable for Bitcoin on several coin exchanges. The blockchain is secured by both Proof-of-Stake and Proof-of-Research algorithms rather than wasteful Proof-of-Work hashing like in Bitcoin.

If you are interested in earning Cryptocurrency for running BOINC, please reference these links or visit us on IRC at irc.freenode.net #gridcoin - (Web IRC).

I think there is currently not yet a paper wallet for Gridcoin Research.

The new GRC (research) are a totally different coin, so no a paper wallet of the old coin will no longer be valid, you should change all your old gridcoin to new gridcoins (http://pool.gridcoin.us/CoinExchange.aspx

However I think there will soon be a paper wallet of the Gridcoin Research and there will be no further updates that create a new coin, the new system is very stable now and you can mine coins by doing science Smiley

I like the idea of this coin. But I dont like having all these coins on my computer or an exchange. As soon as there is a paperwallet I´ll store some safe.
Good work the Devs made with this coin!  Smiley

Grcx has to be switched to the new GRC by the end of April, otherwise you will loose them.

No they won't! You have to do it from your own wallet.

The main forum for gridcoin is by the way here:

https://cryptocointalk.com/forum/464-gridcoin-grc/

This thread on bitcointalk is relatively unused, most of the important discussions are on cryptocointalk.

Gridcoin has been upgraded announcing:
Gridcoin-Research
[GRC]


Why mine when you can research?

Advancing science, mathematics, technology, and understanding the world around us.

A secure blockchain developed on the philosophy of benefiting humanity.


Proof-of-Work algorithms have been criticized for wasting energy on meaningless equations in the mining process and for centralizing transaction processing by encouraging a specialized hardware arms race. Gridcoin introduces a Proof-of-Research algorithm that gives computers something productive to do. Instead of racing to solve meaningless equations, Gridcoin miners Researchers work on problems such as finding cures to diseases, mapping genomes, or climate studies, and are compensated for the work they do.  

Gridcoin rewards you for doing real work. Our goal is to divert computing power from wasteful hashing to productive computing, creating a supercomputing cluster that supports all kinds of scientific investigation and technology development. Access to supercomputers has traditionally been restricted to large research universities and corporations. By creating a large network of computing devices, complex computations once out of reach for most researchers are now possible. The Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC), an open computing platform that supports all kinds of hardware and adapts as technology changes, has been providing distributed supercomputing since 2002, but until now the network was limited to those willing to contribute their resources on a volunteer basis. A few cryptocurrencies have attempted to create a compensation mechanism to increase participation in research, such as Ripple, Curecoin, and Research Support Coin, but these have used a centralized model for determining reward distribution and selecting research topics. Gridcoin lets you decide what to research, and pays you for your research.

Gridcoin is built on top of BOINC and is not limited to any one program, algorithm, or type of hardware. BOINC supports Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and Android. You don't need special hardware to participate and earn rewards for your contributions to research — the computer you use for a few hours every day can contribute to CPU-based scientific projects when you aren't using it, and you won’t waste electricity competing with GPUs or ASICs for rewards. Those with special GPU mining rigs can also participate in projects designed specifically for parallel computations and you don't have to worry about losing your ROI to the next generation of ASICs.  There are currently over 30 different projects available, each with its own hardware needs — some need CPUs, some need GPUs, and some need sensors. The diversity of hardware supported makes it possible to contribute to the network with almost any device, making it more secure and minimizing the centralization of mining power.  

The reward system is designed to pay you in the same way as a pay-per-share mining pool, so you are rewarded fairly based on the work you do — not by how fast you can solve a block. The devices you can use to contribute to scientific research through BOINC include CPU, GPU, Android, R-Pi, and ASICs, with more being added all the time.  

We ask for the community to join us as volunteers, developers, investors, and evangelists seeking to enable a fundamentally different paradigm for the blockchain and the benefits to humanity it can produce.

Real world results

World Community Grid
http://www.youtube.com/embed/eKVtC7rJ438?wmode=opaque
World Community Grid distributes millions of small data-based computer-based experiments to thousands of volunteers' devices. It gathers the results and sends them back to researchers, who interrogate the data for patterns, getting them closer to those world-changing results - faster. Since it began, volunteers have helped scientists to complete thousands of years' work in a few short years. World Community Grid has enabled scientific breakthroughs in cancer treatment and solar energy research. Our research partners have published over 35 articles in peer-reviewed scientific journal based on research conducted on World Community Grid, advancing knowledge in health, poverty and sustainability.

Rosetta@Home
Determining the 3-dimensional shapes of proteins in research that may ultimately lead to finding cures for some major human diseases. By running the Rosetta program on your computer while you don't need it you will help us speed up and extend our research in ways we couldn't possibly attempt without your help. You will also be helping our efforts at designing new proteins to fight diseases such as HIV, Malaria, Cancer, and Alzheimer's.  View disease related work: http://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/rah_medical_relevance.php

POEM@home
The project intends to study how protein structure determines protein function, predict a protein's structure from its amino acid sequence, investigate how proteins interact with each other and understand how malfunctioning proteins can cause sickness. The resulting knowledge can then be used in the development of medical treatments.

30+ more projects covering areas of Science, Technology, Mathematics, Materials, Space Exploration and much, much more!

@ traderman:
Then this one should be closed Smiley Scattering information should be avoided.
And please double check the Announcement on actuality of information (like poloniex listed GRCX as GRCX now, paper wallet generator not working for GRC yet etc.) and actuality of links.
When you post it, Ill also review it!

Quez

EDIT: And this thread should be renamed to "...GRCX ..."
