I think we should be doing more voting here: http://panelpicker.sxsw.com/vote/55483

Yes... WCG should be voted in, but WCG is not going to mention Gridcoin. Unless you mean we should be posting comments.

Not trying to be a dick but...

Quez,

Something seems to be brewing. I can't really put a finger to it but past weeks have seen some big volume at CCEX and Trex.

GRC are changing hands, that's for certain...

I made a post on r/cryptocurrency about Gridcoin.

It's still on the front page! https://www.reddit.com/r/CryptoCurrency/comments/3h7yrj/visualisation_of_how_much_research_was_done_by/

I know. I just wonder who sold nearly 30 BTC of GRC in this small timeframe when we had >30 BTC volume. But for 600 Satoshis I would have sold a bit, too Smiley
Probably one big investor bought for the 600 sats.

I'm guilty of buying some myself. LOL. GRC is currently very very undervalued. I mean, seriously. Look at the tech we have in the coin. It's definitely worth a lot more than what it is now. And the new features we are testing in testnet, would bring even more value to GRC. And Rob's new idea blew my mind. In coin options exchange.

To quote Rob,

I think having the ability in the coin to buy a Put would be pretty huge; and if we did this in a decentralized way, even bigger.

Actually I did not fully understand this new idea(s). Will we have an actual exchange in the client? Or will it be optional? Will we be a competitor to our partner-exchanges or do we just provide additional possibilities which they do not provide?

But apart from the things I don't understand, I truly believe we are just at the beginning of the rising GRC price. Just think about the basic principle of Gridcoin: using a kind of PoW in combination with PoS for something good, for science. No other coin can do that. Okay there are/were some but they were only focusing on one project like folding coin, right? We have the full variety of BOINC at our disposal. Actually I am proud to earn a crypto-currency due to cancer research or CERN stuff for example.

The low volume is due to the fact that there are not many places to spend GRC, so most people just hoard it. Other than 1 gambling site (crypto-games), there isn't much to do with your newly minted grc. That is what we need to work on! I would say that is where the majority of the foundation funds should be spent on.

Hmm true, we have to work on many things. But with a higher marketcap more peple will get interested and so will be online shops. Therefore we need to get more people investing in Gridcoin.

It will compliment the exchanges and not in competition. It's more like a platform to buy and sell options.

There are many things I do not understand either. You are not alone Cheesy And yes, I'm proud to be "mining" GRC for I know, for every GRC I generate, research is being done that will propel the humankind forward. Be it the protein folding research done by Rosetta, or clean water by World Community Grid, every work unit your computer computes and send back to the projects, gets us closer.

Agree with you.. Gridcoin is extremly undervalued especially when seeing the tech. There are currently higher market cap coins do not deserve that position. I'm in the Gridcoin project now almost 2 years and non exchange prices were at that time about 900-1000 satoshi if i transfer it to the current coin supply.

However we had those prices even with much less features and tech and community so everyone can imagine what Gridcoin should be actually worth now with existing real world adoption, tech and outstanding community. 2000 - 3000 satoshi is the price investors should focus and expect in the long term.  To be honest i haven't seen a better, real world adopted coin out there apart from Bitcoin itself.

Sounds like i am promoting something, however i just mention pure facts!

Actually I am hoping we will exceed 3000 satoshi. I am not mining now like a mad man that I 'only' have 10 times the price we have now. My belief is we will end up at least in the top 10 of all the coinmarketcaps so we will have at least 50-100x the price we have now. But as we are the one coin having useful mining on a big scale with many options to mines/research, I really think we will end up at the top 5 or higher. Imagine all crypto-people united in researching for the greater good. Serverfarms will be build for all the researchers out there in the expectation to earn GRC which is worth more than the electricity (plus the investment for the serverfarm). I like that thought and until then my GRC will stay in my wallet.

I don't think features alone are going to get GRC into the top10 cryptos. We need uses for the currency, there is not much you can do right now with your grc. Our volume is also really low on the exchanges, which is not a good sign.

The Gridcoin price is rising! I like that. About 40% in the last few weeks. But there is more to come, especially when Research Age is being implemented so the core is finalized. Then we have no limits to a number of researchers(=miners) and a fully operational and decentralized payment system, the Neural Network.

And then Rob will have the time to implement all of his crazy-genious ideas of Gridcoin Finance, the options market within the client, perfecting voting and and and... Smiley
