Gridcoin is getting to be really exciting actually Smiley such a good coin! Should take over Litecoin! Personally I'm rather attached to bitcoin but I dont know why it couldn't be a better than bitcoin? has bitcoin got anything that gridcoin doesn't?

More people know Bitcoin, more services accept Bitcoin.

Nothing that can't be changed.

I said it before (when the price was at 300 satoshis) and I say it again (now its at 1100 satoshis, rising): What are the people, YOU, waiting for? We have a coin with USEFUL algorithms, ASIC proof because there are many different algorithms, with incoin voting and smart contracts. Once we reach Top 5 in terms of coinmarketcap (the price has to rise at factor 10 for that) you can thank me for sounding like a troll Cheesy

First mover advantage.

But the big thing about gridcoin is that the computations you do solve real world problems, eg. protein folding, simulating a brain,....

Imagine if Gridcoin was as big as Bitcoin, then it would be by far the fastest and biggest supercomputer in the world, run by people all over the world, solving the world's scientific problems!

If you really think about it, there is really no way to even begin to comprehend the scientific implications if Gridcoin really does take off and millions of Boinc participants and commercial mining entities come into the picture. Simulations that may have previously taken several months or even years with current distributed computational power may end up being completed in days/hours. The time savings alone for scientists would be incalculable. IT BOGGLES THE MIND!!!

Many projects keep an own list of discovered prime numbers (https://www.primegrid.com/) or "rendered" asteroids (http://asteroidsathome.net/scientific_results.html) for example.

One discovery made it to science news lately from einstein@home, for example: http://www.space.com/24190-pulsar-gravity-einstein-general-relativity.html

Hello from 'IndiaMikeZulu.'

Guys, we are an active group of Australia krypto geeks. At present, our Bitcoin exchanges are under flat-out attack from the banks. And electricity is expensive here.

And Gridcoin keeps getting mentioned as a candidate for cpu mining. (Your community members on Reddit Doge cryptocurrency do a good job.)

So we're interested to ask some questions. That is, Australia might become a enthusiastic outpost of Gridcoiners. Will pop in tomorrow.

Hey IMZ, welcome to Gridcoin,

I have been hearing that recently the Australian banks have been terrorizing the crypto community. I think they are starting to realize that times are changing and not necessarily in their favor. Although, if they play their cards right they may get a slice of the new pie. Just join our irc community!

Thanks, traderman. Yeh, us IMZ guys busy right now tryin' ta figger it out.

http://cointelegraph.com/news/115379/bitcoin-staggers-in-australia-as-banking-cartel-conspires-against-exchanges

In regard of Gridcoin, IMZ is coin-agnostic, so we are willing to help anyone with any coin*, and if GRC can be effectively cpu-mined here, then . . . that's pretty good!

Will try IRC.

Mark

*We think that circumstances here make co-operation an imperative. We have huge distances, scrappy Internet, and an uncertain regulatory environment. We don't need squabbles. If there are any Australian Gridcoiners here, come and register at Cryptoguild.com, our cubby house.

Guys, we need more "customer service" at our IRC channel. If you have the spare time and are pretty knowledgeable with GRC and BOINC, please join us at #gridcoin on freenode to provide help and support to newbies.

Web IRC Client: https://kiwiirc.com/client/irc.freenode.net:6667/#gridcoin

or download hexchat from https://hexchat.github.io/ which is a stand alone IRC client.
