Hello everyone!

Here comes a probably stupid question:

Does the wallet needs to run on the same machine as boinc does?

Boinc runs on a win8.1 system and i would like to run the wallet on a separate ubuntu machine.

Any problems to expect?

Thanks and regards,
djoser.

yes. just add the same project you are crunching to boinc on your ubuntu maschine where your wallet is runing and click no new tasks for that project.

Make sure you have connections to peers.
If so, just wait...sometimes it takes several hours to sync, after an initial install.
Patience is key here, even if it looks as the wallet doing nothing.

Cheers, djoser.

BTW: What the frog is going on with GRC/BTC price today??? Any obvious news i missed?

It will be a lot quicker to sync if you use the snapshot... http://download.gridcoin.us/download/downloadstake/signed/snapshot.zip provided on the official Gridcoin site.

Once download just extract to the appropriate directory and it should sync the remaining blocks relatively quickly.

The block explorer (http://www.gridresearchcorp.com/gridcoin) seems to be stuck on block 523487.

Can someone explain me the economics of GRIDCOIN?

I do understand that miners use their calculating power to help scientific researches and then are rewarded with GRC.

However I don't understand how does it work on the customer side, if a lab need some computational power does he needs to pay the miners? Or he can use the miners for free?

If a scientist or a commercial entity wants to get computational power from Gridcoin they will have to setup their own Boinc project, which then has to be vetted by the Gridcoin community and voted on for acceptance into the whitelist: http://gridcoin.us/Guides/whitelist.htm

Thanks for your answer traderman but that does not explain what is the purpose of the coin? When some projects are in the whitelist and use the computational power, do they have to use Gridcoins ?

Sorry but it is still confuse for me even if this project seems really interesting.

Do some research on boinc and you'll understand.

It's free for science projects and for commercial projects there might be some kind of fee in the future, but that is still open.

Only five months of delay from the original promised date, and the give a fantastic compensation of 200 GRC. How many GRC can have they made with the 50 PiGrid sold during this 5 month? You think it's nice and fantastic, from a bit more realistic point of view I feel goxed. And with no project update for more than a month, last on 27th March and they told that time that PiGrid was almost shipped.

In future updates you will be able to choose between pool mining and solo mining mode.

I want to clarify that a Kickstarter pledge is not like ordering in an online store. We are building a project for the Gridcoin community and the backers help us realize that project.

Obviously there can be unforseen issues during the development of such a project from scratch. This fact combined with high expectations that we have ourselves and only a small (but growing) development team leads to delays. We would like to apologize for any inconveniences.

Additionally I would like to point you to the Kickstarter conditions (https://www.kickstarter.com/terms-of-use):

"At the same time, backers must understand that when they back a project, they’re helping to create something new — not ordering something that already exists. There may be changes or delays, and there’s a chance something could happen that prevents the creator from being able to finish the project as promised."
