There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Server-assisted clients like blockchain.info rely on centralized servers to do their network verification for them. Although the server can't steal the client's bitcoins directly, it can easily execute double-spending-style attacks against the client.

What I want to highlight from below is this:

    me: "The top50 GRC addresses own 48.76% of all Gridcoins" (total coins = 392.5 million GRC)

    me: the top50 are surely not 50 individuals but a few people only

    me: that's what I'd do when I'd be smart

    me: having more than 1 address is not only advised due to avoiding people pointing fingers at you, also backup/security wise


The other things discussed below may be true or not, but the above fact doesn't change.

Hi everyone. Windows client is killing me. I'm trying to download blocks for the third time and it's always stuck at 99,99%.  Huh It's so frustrating. Please guys help me before i smash my laptop  Angry
It most likely isn't stuck, but the estimate is wrong. When it's at 99.99% it's actually more like 66%, so it needs more time, but the counter can't move past 99.99% until it's really finished.

It's all good now. Wallet synced. I totally forgot to run the client as administrator, so it was all my fault  Tongue

just uploaded the windows wallet for the first time (last version).

1st time I opened the wallet, I got a few small messages (e-mail address
and others which I ignored).
Finally, I told to myself it would be better to complete every steps.

So, I closed the wallet thinking that I would see again the different messages.

But NO, I opened again the wallet and I don't get the different messages.
The wallet directly started to sunc and did not display the small windows
showing the messages)

As this is different from other wallet / coins (sure), I am not familiar
with those little setup "requested" that I denied.

Could someone help me to understand what to do to be fully operational
with the wallet and have everything setup for the best benefits of the wallet?

thanks in advance

A recapture of what happened yesterday:

* So, how do you actually know that something is wrong in your Gridcoin client?

* The situation today is GOOD (and also was good yesterday after like 1-2h)


Did we save the world yesterday? Maybe, perhaps, who knows... https://steemit.com/gridcoin/@erkan/did-we-save-the-world-yesterday-maybe-perhaps-who-knows

Greetings from our superblock: "Magnitude too low for POR reward."

* Only 20% of the whitelisted projects  are in this superblock now, thus lots of users will experience the "magnitude zero" problem

The project cost me a lot of money. Every time I buy at high points, sell low, and get stuck every time

Too bad, seems daily trade is not for you. My guess is you that you don't even know what Gridcoin is. You probably saw it in the top-earners of coinmarket and decided to buy.

My suggestion, start practising the HODL strategy. Gridcoin has a super strong community that grows everyday. Selling it low is stupid in the long term.

outreach: giving Wikimedia users Gridcoins for their activity?


We could add also Wikipedia statistics into Gridcoin so the editors there can get GRC for their activities.


* me: and there are so many Wikipedia language editions

* me: and then there is also many sister projects like: Wikisource, ....

* me: lots of people (e.g. English Wikipedia has 116k editors who were active in last 30 days)

Worth pointing out

1) Most coins, including GRC, are mostly held on exchanges that have at least one large cold wallet and one large hot wallet.

2) GRC is traded on Poloniex, Bittrex, CCEx etc so at least each of those exchanges would have cold and hot wallets which would obviously be a lot of the total coins.

3) GRC is different from most coins, and similar to other math and science coins, in that its use is in actual users, not in being held on exchanges. People who anticipate the direction altcoins are likely to go in when public adoption increases are betting on GRC, even though not a lot of the public actually uses altcoins yet.

Because of the underlying network, boinc etc, this is probably a strong coin for the future but it does not have the glitz of heavily marketed coins like ethereum where the focus is strictly on short term profit.

I am one of the new investors of this brilliant coin. I am not fully master but i am learning GRC. I think this coin has very big expectations and the potential for the future. One of the reasons that i chose this coin is the big fall from 4650 until now. I am long term investor for this coin and i think the price is very very cheap. The total market cap is also very low which means this coin is going to be very profitable.
