Creating a Bitcoin client that fully implements the network protocol is extremely difficult. Bitcoin-Qt is the only known safe implementation of a full node. Some other projects attempt to compete, but it is not recommended to use such software for anything serious. (Lightweight clients like Electrum and MultiBit are OK.)

I think its because the community is stagnating, i believe very few new members comes to community and a lot just dumps, just because there's this big 'barrier' of entry (you need like 2k grc to stake once in blue moon) Magnitude pos weight balance, etc...

Look, I understand you have to do 10 posts a week because of your sig. I have the same after all. But please abstain from making idiotic posts. The price (in satoshi) is going down for the same reason most coins go down.

1) BTC is exploding and everybody is selling to get btc. So gridcoin and almost any other altcoin goes down.

2) The community is stagnating? Really? And then why does gridcoin has like 10 new posts on totally different topics, everyday over https://steemit.com/trending/gridcoin? Or maybe have you checked slack? How about the original ann here? https://cryptocurrencytalk.com/topic/1331-new-coin-launch-announcement-grc-gridcoin

Gridcoin is super active and the community grows by the day. The only place members are not active is here on the ann. I am trying to change this by posting all the news here but it's not effective. My guess is because the new people here mainly really care for the top-10 coins and the new ones where they can shill and make (hopefully) a fast buck.

3) The only point you are right is the coin barrier for staking.. But guess what? All POS coin are like that (except the ones that have a 70% per year stake). If you want to stake a lot of coins, you need to buy a lot of coins. It's simple math.

TLDR: Stop spreading BS

Always good to have some of these very old rock solid projects being around. Too many of them have been left by the devs half way.

And not just any coin. A coin that benefits humanity with scientific research Smiley

Yes, absolutely agree Smiley We will see in the future how big the benefit for humanity contributed by Gridcoin turns out to be.

First of all points noted Smiley
I am crushing BOINC for like a decade or so with some downtime and I'm grateful for grc community. It is great coin with purpose behind it. Yes grc team doing great job attracting members from other BOINC teams. Yes steemit has buzz around grc.
So there's that.
And on the other side there's ugly truth. I almost can guarantee you that 99.99% of human population on planet earth doesn't even know that BOINC exits/is. And then you subtract the amount of BOINC users who doesn't even know what crypto is  then you get ... lim -> 0.
I know GRC has voting system, kinda unique PoS system and even integrated neural net for consensus(?) but It's not advertised ANYWHERE in human readable form.

Ruhr Universität Bochum is in Germany. Is this a German project? If not, pretty cool people from around the globe have a look at the security model.

 Most Internet projects are at least somewhat international.

 But no, AFAIK Gridcoin is not based out of Germany.

Yes sure. But that they dedicate their time to Gridcoin is interesting.
