new update from Rob, it seems that development is going along really well!

Quote
Just a high level update for the day before I bury myself with code:
 
- Please dont get the idea gridcoin finance is dead.  The issue is some other priorities sped ahead of it and required changes to its web host and architecture.  The .NET Dll project (Global Developer) is forcing me to change P2P authentication over to a session key that stays on your machine as a cookie, your password (that you create in register) is never transmitted to the boinc p2p server sql its only hashed (hint hint...), and the state of the session is stored in the p2p sql server as Authenticated:0 or 1.  One other issue is the co-dev Im working with in DC (brilliant person who is writing 30 frame per second p2p rdp sharing over html5) requires a dedicated port to be used for the app sharing. This disrupted my hosting of finance.gridcoin.us.  Im working on splitting the ports and re-hosting it on a new server.  So once all this is done, Ill bring it back, and I do intend to make the interface for contributors by the end of the year and get it actually trading possibly with real money as long as we meet the regulatory hurdles.  RTM is checking on those for DACs.
- Pallas, Ill definitely reach out to you to see what project you want to work on.  Im just backlogged again trying to get out the testnet whitelist project, merge in the github changes to catch them up, and integrate this new session stuff into Gridcoin.
- Support.gridcoin.us:  This is held up for the same reason.  I have to integrate the latest changes with authentication.  Technically it should remove the lag and be snappy.  Im also writing a "watchdog" to make sure the codevs code does not die.  Its got an issue that freezes up in the middle of the night.  I did send support emails and they are working on 5 bugs that I reported.  Im responsible for writing part of this product for them, and this is slowing down the entire project to a point.
- Tickets:  Once I get the new auth window to show in the coin, tickets will work with security.  I also have to set up the security function so that once a ticket is assigned to you, no one can push it off of you or close it except you.  Also, the handle and the username will be secured by the hash.
- GRCNation sent me an entire version of boinc, reverse engineered in c#.  Its pretty interesting.  It may offer a valuable purpose eventually for us to add some more features.
- In Coin Voting:  This is sort of a fun project that Id like to add in along with the automatic notices and its pretty close to being tackled once I go through the tickets again.

Testnet for the new features is open, here is the thread: https://cryptocointalk.com/topic/13792-testers-wanted-gridcoin-research-test-boinc-whitelist/page-69#entry173243

Quote
TestNet Instructions:
 
Upgrade GridcoinResearch to 3.3.9.9+
cd %appdata%\gridcoinresearch
Alter your gridcoinresearch.conf:
Ensure these lines exist in the config:
server=1
rpcuser=yourusername
rpcpassword=yourpassword
rpcport=9334 (or any port you want to scrypt mine against)
email=your_boinc_email
addnode=node.gridcoin.us
rpcallowip=*
Once edited copy the gridcoinresearch.conf into %appdata%\gridcoinresearch\testnet
To Start the program:
cd c:\program files (x86)\gridcoinresearch
gridcoinresearch -testnet
Note that the window name will also contain [testnet]
Configure your scrypt miner to mine against 127.0.0.1, with your rpcuser and rpcpassword
Start the miner
(we scrypt mine until block 2050 then transition to POR)
 
In TestNet, I made the rewards +1000 per block - otherwise they are the same as Prod.
Added the ability for the coin to recognize new projects or blacklists or remappings automatically within 5 minutes of a change to the coin while running.
(Every 5 blocks, the coin pulls in any key changes added within the last 5 blocks).
 
Im running 300kh/s or so scrypt miner in testnet now and Ill do my best to leave it running on grid3 until we are finished.
 
So far Ive added these projects to the whitelist:
 
"Project" : "asteroids@home",
"Project" : "bitcoin utopia",
"Project" : "collatz conjecture",
"Project" : "malariacontrol.net",
"Project" : "milkyway@home",
"Project" : "rosetta@home",
"Project" : "simap",
"Project" : "theskynet pogs",
 
Test the list cpids, list projects, list magnitude, list rsa, and verify magnitude levels equalize and projects are valid.
 
We will also have to test blacklisting a project (pretending that it became rogue etc) and we will also need to test the Project Re-Map feature - this is when Netsoft uses a different name than the boinc project name.
 
And anything else you all can think of !
 
Thanks!

You need RAC > 100 in a project that Gridcoin recognizes your research.

And in Leiden you should wait, up to 2 days will it take from the point when you reached 100 RAC.

update on the machine learning project:
Quote
I have a first version of the gridcoin machine learning project as well as a whitepaper explaining excactly what it does.
 
The BOINC project is at: http://ec2-54-93-162...s.com/boinctest
 
What the client does is basically:
- download training data, data to be predicted and a program
- the program find patterns in the training data with a random forests and makes predictions according to those patterns for the data to be predcited
- the predictions are uploaded again to the server
- on the server the different predictions from the different clients are aggregated (for why the prediction are different, see the paper)
 
The link to the whitepaper is here: https://drive.google...XhiNUtBREk/view
 
What is needed now is a discussion, under what exact circumstances does gridcoin support commercial projects/DACs?
 
What do you think of this project?
 
The thread of the project is here: https://cryptocointa...19-gridcoin-ml/, maybe it's better to have some of the discussion there.

update on the finance project by Rob:

Quote
Update on Gridcoin Finance...  Although I would normally post this on the finance thread, I dont think anyone has been there in 6 months - and the site has been down for 30 days so Ill just post an update here to reinvigorate interest in it.
 
I brought the site back online - finance.gridcoin.us is back up.
 
One of my todo items is to add the close trade button for one to allow people tracking their own fake portfolios to close trades and two, to allow me to close the trades during expiration week (for house managed accounts).
 
During auditing of the ROI a couple of days ago, I found some of our trades are already expired, (these are 4 legged trades), another words, the short put or short call already expired in the past meaning that trade is actually already closed.
 
So, I wanted to keep the ROI accurate, so I made the mark to market system automatically mark an expired trade at the expired value (ie assessed as of the date the box expires) for accuracy.
 
During that process, I found two trades (out of about 50) that had a component in the trade with an unquoteable equity.  One was Master Card, had a 900 call that could not be retrieved.  The other one was AAPL had a box that was quoted on 7-14-2014 (probably when we started the site) that due to the reverse split, could not determine an accurate value of the box.  I just deleted these two trades.  Note that these were actually not Losing trades, so this definitely does not skew the ROI to be in our favor - they are just cases that we have to have better programming to prevent being executed and marked - and code to deal with them.  So I still believe the ROI is accurate.  Next I did a quick check on each option, and 100% of them have marked quotes received by the data service. Another words, over time, I have quotes in the database within 3 days of every option price, with changes per trade.  So there is no way that the system created trades and buffaloed the data over time or skimmed out losers.  They are all there and I have history of the mark to market for each option as time passed (although I only marked them once per week since I have to manually click a button to mark the portfolio to market in the admin panel).  But anyway, the state of the options now: they are all marked with actual quotes and that means the rows should be accurate.
 
 
If you have been taking snapshots you will probably remember we had a 100% total ROI in 6 months, but some of the listed trades showed a very big loss (like -50%) and now you will see they are more like -5%.  I did NOT change ANY trade execution data, the issue was, those trades were actually expired, and the system was still marking them with Todays prices which is actually not possible, since the options are expired, the position price has to be assessed as of the day they expired, and they are now.  (And to add complexity to the issue, when I say today, I mean 2 of the 4 legs of the Live options in a box were marked with todays prices while the 2 legs that were expired were Deep in the money with full intrinsic value, showing a loss greater than would have been possible).  But to put people at ease, when we go back to the expiry date of those rows, the system will automatically detect the earliest end date out of the 4 legs, and assess the row as of the expiration date giving a fully valid realistic price which is what we see right now).
 
So to summarize the first iteration of finding, executing, marking and reporting the trades appears to be working fine and now we need to start over, re-analyze current conditions, enter new trades and watch a new cycle and see if we can repeat the performance.
 
But its very promising in that this cycle was a complete success with 100% ROI .
If anyone wants to audit the individual legs feel free to drill into all the data and shoot holes in it.
 
One useful report I would like to add is what percent of trades did we find, what percent were profitable.  The other positive feedback that I see based on the results is the winners tended to be larger than the losers by at least 1 magnitude.  Meaning the losers we picked became very small losers with small percentages and the winners became large winning percentage.  This lends credence to the original algorithm in the sense that one of the criteria to pick a trade requires the profit/risk ratio to be high before it is considered to be traded - meaning that if you can earn $100 on $100 with a $20 risk it is considered where earning $10 on $100 with a $75 risk is not considered.  The results mirror the selection process since you can see, the losers bore out to be approximately capped at the levels of the original assessed risk (not because we have risk caps per row, because the Actual risk in the position was low due to the nature of the black scholes model for that trade).
 
Rob
