How do I stake in the Gridcoin Wallet? - GRC SUPPORT ...

What is Gridcoin and how to get started?

Gridcoin is a cryptocurrency that rewards researching for BOINC projects (https://boinc.berkeley.edu/) in a decentralized way.
There are BOINC projects, that for example cure Ebola (http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/research/oet1/overview.do), fold proteins (https://boinc.bakerlab.org/) or find aliens (http://setiathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/) and many more.
Just like in bitcoin there is a fixed rate of newly minted coins given out every day. But unlike Bitcoin, miners compete in doing calculations for actual research projects to earn coins. Gridcoin is based on Proof of Stake, but with the modification that the PoS reward gets bigger dependig on how much research you do compared to your fellow researchers.
In order to achieve this, all clients regularly query the whitelisted BOINC projects and come to a consensus, how much research was done by each user in the so called "Neural Network". This information is then stored on the blockchain and is the basis for how much a researcher gets when he stakes the next block.
The best way to get started with Gridcoin is on the official page: www.gridcoin.us. There are tutorials for both solo-mining and pool-mining. There is also a pretty good tutorial for solo-mining on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jX78dSvg8kg
The main sources of information about Gridcoin besides this subreddit are the forum (https://cryptocointalk.com/forum/464-gridcoin-grc/) and IRC (https://kiwiirc.com/client/irc.freenode.net:6667/#gridcoin-help).

What is Gridcoin?

Basically Gridcoin is a cryptocurrency like Bitcoin, but instead of solving useless hashes to mine Bitcoins, you have to run scientific simulations to solve cancer, make new renewable energy solutions or create AI.
Bitcoin is a great idea that has enormous potential as the currency of the future, but the mining is wasteful and useless as ensuring the security of the network can be done with a lot less waste of energy and the competitive element of who earns newly created coins can be done with a competition who gives most computing power to science.
The whole system is decentralized, the only centralized part is a whitelist that has the information which BOINC projects should be rewarded, that is currently curated by an administrator, but this will soon be replaced by incoin-voting, so that the community determines which projects are supported.
This is proof of all the work that has already been done by our miners: http://boincstats.com/en/stats/-1/team/detail/118094994/overview

Gridcoin Research 3.4.0.6/24.0 - Leisure Upgrade But Strongly Encouraged.

Gridcoin Research 3.4.0.6/24.0 Leisure Upgrade
Note: Due to the complexity of DPOR, the feature is broken into phases. In Phase I, we will need to reconcile the DPOR rac to match prod, thus it would be prudent for us to test this version together in prod (we are running DPOR side-by-side the legacy system to maintain complete network compatibility). I think testnet will be too small and error prone to complete this exercise. Instructions below:

Earn Gridcoin for your contributions to BOINC/ SETI

So, I recently came across a new type of crypto coin called Gridcoin, which rewards those of us who would rather volunteer our beautiful hardware for science, rather than solving Bitcoin hashes and wasting electricity.
You basically set up the Gridcoin wallet client, which runs parallel to the BOINC client, and it rewards you based on your RAC (recent average credit).
If you have any questions or want any more information, please don't hesitate to ask.

Happy crunching, and spread the word :D

Пресс-релиз проекта PiGrid

PiGrid - получай награду за помощь в исследовательских проектах
Научные исследователи уже имеют технологии, которые могут помочь в борьбе против болезней и глобального изменения климата. Да, эти технологии зачастую зависят от доступа к мощным вычислительным ресурсам для симуляции и проверки результатов вычислений.
Теперь, комбинация инноваций позволит ускорить прогресс в данной области.
В гражданских научных проектах, любой желающий может предложить свою помощь.
Выделив часть компьютерного времени исследовательским группам, любой может использовать время простоя вычислительного ресурса с пользой для дела.
BOINC[1] это научно исследовательская сеть, которая имеет все необходимое для логистики: она распределяет небольшие задания принимающим участие
компьютерам для выполнения ими вычислений и сбора результатов, при этом управляя масштабируемостью сети
В добавлении к этому, еще одна инновация Gridcoin[2] позволяет наградить за участие в BOINC сети.
Gridcoin использует блокчейн алгоритм для обеспечения быстрых и безопасных платежей в глобальной энерго-эффективной сети.
В то время как Bitcoin потребляет электричество на более чем 15 миллионов долларов каждый день[3], Gridcoin способен кардинально сократить растрачиваемую
впустую энергию и направить 98% мировых ресурсов подключенных к сети на научные цели.
Это стало возможным благодаря свойствам Bitcoin, ассиметричной криптографии Blackcoin[4] и продвинутого концепта "proof-of-research" реализованного
в блокчейне Gridcoin
По-прежнему, существует нерешенная проблема, связанная c адаптацией пользователей. Первоначальный процесс настройки Gridcoin в комбинации с BOINC
отнимает много времени и зачастую бывает сложным.
Это является препятствием для новичков.
Для того чтобы предоставить конечным пользователям «plug-n-play» решение, был разработан PiGrid[5] - решение
с открытым кодом, которое работает прямо из коробки и берет на себя все необходимые действия по конфигурации и обновлениям.
PiGrid может быть использован либо на вашем оборудовании, либо поставляться в виде коробочного варианта с предустановленным ПО.
Графический интерфейс пользователя позволит выбрать исследовательские проекты посредством перетаскивания мышью, мониторить прогресс и отслеживать
получение поощрений в Gridcoin
Первое поколение PiGrid решений будет создано на основе краудфандинга Kickstarter: http://pigrid.com/kickstarter
Ниже прилагается список ссылок со справочной информацией
Мы будем благодарны если вы упомянете PiGrid на любых новостных ресурсах. Если у вас есть возникли вопросы, присылайте их на адрес [email protected]
Спасибо за ваше время! С уважением, PiGrid

I read I need Bitcoin to change into Gridcoin before I can stake... sad thing is this is the first time I have mined for crypto coin and now I'm stuck because all the GRC faucets are dry and I do not have Bitcoin to exchange Would be very grateful for any help, also will repay startup coin once I have received coins from mining. The Gridcoin-Classic to Gridcoin-Research conversion began October 12th, 2014 and will continue until approximately April 20th, 2015, a 6 month window. The process involves destroying or "burning" coins to a designated Gridcoin-Research address that can not have a private key generated for it. To successfully burn Gridcoin-Classic coins and receive Gridcoin-Research coins the classic coins ...
