* https://www.reddit.com/r/gridcoin/comments/6lspy8/the_top50_grc_addresses_own_48_of_all_gridcoins/


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.

    https://steemit.com/gridcoin/@erkan/the-top50-grc-addresses-own-48-of-all-gridcoins


Visit us also in IRC!


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.

Let's hit the chinese market:

Since gridcoin 格雷德币 has a Chinese version wallet now(translated by me),we should contact Chinese exchanges 中国交易所 to add gridcoin!That will promote the price for sure!
For most exchanges,using English in your email is OK. Most of the employees are well-educated, they can read and write English well.
I will make a list,but I think the contacting work is better done by the dev and marketing team,because they know more technique details than me.
List of main Chinese exchanges:
1: www.btc38.com 比特时代 It's one of the oldest altcoin exchanges in China. Email:contact@mail.btc38.com
2: www.bter.com 比特儿 It's another classical exchange,with less volume. Service Email: support@mail.bter.com Master Email: admin@mail.bter.com
3: yunbi.com 云币网 A relatively new exchange with more ICO coins. The boss is Xiaolai Li李笑来,the richest bitcoin owner in China. Haven't found the Email,you can directly contact the twitter:https://mobile.twitter.com/yunbicom
4: https://dax.btcc.com BTCC DAX The altcoin branch of the oldest bitcoin exchange in China. Now trading only ETC-BTC pair. Will add more coins hopefully. Email:support@btcc.com You can send the message directly at https://www.btcc.com/contact
5: www.binance.com 币安 A new coin-to-coin exchange opened by Changpeng Zhao赵长鹏,the former CTO of okcoin.com Will begin trading at 2017.7.15. Twitter:https://mobile.twitter.com/binance_2017

"Promoting the price" vs "promoting awareness" vs "adding value" are different things.

Promoting price, by itself = pump, not good

Promoting awareness is the most important thing for a coin like Gridcoin that actually does produce a valuable commodity when it is mined, something only a few other coins do.

Adding value is the best way to 'promote price'. This coin already has objective value, in that it produces something of great value as a result of its use.

Maybe looking for ways to increase its utility as a currency, and also simpler ways to encourage mining GRC for utterly new people. It would be cool to have a wallet anybody could download, onto any machine from a tablet to a supercomputer, that would automatically connect to some pool or whatever and mine without the user having to configure etc. Download wallet. Install. Click. Simple. Even if you only make $0.02 per day it would be a new step in facilitating beginners.

Why has #Gridcoin such a low price?

Someone or something is responsible for all coins' price drops. Was it Erkan ? https://steemit.com/gridcoin/@erkan/someone-or-something-is-responsible-for-all-coins-price-drops-could-it-be-erkan

Someone or something is responsible for all coins' price drops. Was it Erkan ? https://steemit.com/gridcoin/@erkan/someone-or-something-is-responsible-for-all-coins-price-drops-could-it-be-erkan

July 2015 market cap $316,206 https://coinmarketcap.com/historical/20150712/

July 2016 market cap $2,450,195 https://coinmarketcap.com/historical/20160717/

July 2017 market cap $10,189,661 https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/gridcoin/

It did hit $41,000,000 last month but it also peaked at $20,000,000 in May before dropping back to $10,000,000 then jumping to $40,000,000.

So the answer to your question is yes, it might be your fault. Can you make it go higher now?

Very frustrating coin...
BOINC is great, but GRC is like schoolboys prank: wallet crashes, no magnitude, diagnostics tool is a joke and so on and on...

Code:
"Command" : "explainmagnitude"
},
{
"Whitelisted Project Count" : 2.00000000,
"Grand-Total Verified RAC" : 3894.00000000,
"Grand-Total Network RAC" : 26436160.00000000,
"Total Magnitude for All Projects" : 0.00000000,
"Grand-Total Whitelisted Projects" : "2",
"Participating Project Count" : 0.00000000,
"(0.00/0.00)/2*115000=" : 0.00000000

On the other hand, closest competitor is Golem: no computing, no wallet and the latest one - no deadlines.

new Gridcoin version 3.5.9.3 released

* this version can crash for first-time actions with the NN, see fix in:

https://steemit.com/gridcoin/@erkan/new-release-gridcoin-version-3-5-9-3-not-mandatory


Another version will likely come soon...

3.5.9.3 changes:
* Fix neural network inability to stake superblocks
* Require superblocks to be populated with more than half of the whitelisted projects (see e.g. recent case with a superblock that had only 4% of the whitelisted BOINC projects included)
* Add subfolders to Neural Network
