    • Have been doing BOINC for 1 day with 2 machines, did not know that I need to have GTC until recently. Very appreciate if anyone can send some starter coin!   Thanks!   SLaxRfNStwGanDqJf3i8sBcXmBvqjwawET  
    • @NATEONTHENET I would like to thank you for taking the time to respond to each concern I had. I realize the post comes off as negative, but I do want to clarify that I'm skeptical - not outright objecting the proposal. I would like to understand how this benefits BOINCers and doesn't further consolidate the coins and voting rights in the hands of the few. I'm here because I'm a BOINCer - a proud BOINCer for 15 years (back when there wasn't BOINC and there was just SETI) and I support this coin because it encourages BOINCing.   In terms of the voting polls - there actually used to be an option (I don't know about under this new voting system) to vote by CPID.    And in terms of there being 14M coins on the exchanges. That's less than 5% of the supply, and I think you would find many medium size players (like myself) keep coins there just in case the price spikes so we can buy more gridcoins by selling and buying back in. I keep like 15-20K out of my 80K or so in exchange accounts. I'm relatively old in this community as I joined when we were at $0.006, but there are many others that were in before that and watched the price climb to 8 or 10 cents only to watch it fall back to this 3-5 cent trading range.

    • TOBAM, a France-based asset management company, has introduced a bitcoin mutual fund to offer an alternative investment for institutional investors seeking exposure to bitcoin. The fund, according to the company, is unregulated. TOBAM’s bitcoin fund precedes the Chicago Mercantile Exchange’s plans to list bitcoin futures. In seeking to address challenges investors have faced in gaining exposure to bitcoin, the fund integrates the management of blockchain forks and takes measures to mitigate the risk of loss and theft, according to the TOBAM website. Bitcoin, while volatile, offers investors diversification, according to TOBAM. Bitcoin, which is not regulated by national financial regulatory bodies like the Securities and Exchange Commission in the U.S. and the Financial Conduct Authority in the U.K., cannot be held by most exchange-traded funds or by traditional mutual funds, according to the Financial Times. TOBAM’s fund is not traded on an exchange and does not qualify as a European mutual fund known as a Ucit, according to the Financial Times. The fund does, however, have daily liquidity derived from market closing prices, a characteristic it shares with what are known as Ucits mutual funds. TOBAM founder Yves Choueifaty said the fund required permission from France’s regulatory authority, Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF), to be launched. He also said the company had to convince the AMF the fund has a framework that protects investors. Investing directly in bitcoin poses challenges in the choice of platform and in maintaining the security of custody in addition to protocol challenges, such as hard forks, according to Christophe Roehri, TOBAM’s head of business development. The fund’s auditor is PwC and its custodian is Caceis, the asset servicing banking group of Credit Agricole. Choueifaty said he will be disappointed if the fund does not grow to more than $400 million in two to three years. TOBAM ‘s founder also believes cryptocurrencies, like CVH coin, will establish durable standards in the savings and financial markets. TOBAM, which manages $8.8 billion in fixed income and equities according to its website, follows a diversification approach that uses patented research and mathematical definition of diversification to provide exposure in both the fixed income and equity markets. “Our goal is to take control of these operational challenges in order to facilitate access for qualified investors willing to gain exposure to bitcoin,” Roehri said. “All of that under the format of a fund.” Mainstream financial advisers and portfolio managers have claimed most institutional investors remain far away from considering investing in bitcoin. Launched in 2005, TOBAM is employee owned. The California Public Employees Retirement System and Amundi are minority shareholders since 2011 and 2012, respectively. The team has 49 professionals from 17 countries. TOBAM has developed cyber security systems over the past 12 years. Its development team includes researchers, risk management specialists, engineers and computer specialists. In addition to being regulated by Autorité des Marchés Financiers, TOBAM is an SEC-registered investment adviser. It is also registered in Canada and South Korea.
    • Uport, a self-sovereign identity and user-centric data platform on the Ethereum blockchain, has made its platform available to the citizens of Zug, Switzerland. The first official Zug identification registered on the Ethereum blockchain before a live audience, Uport recently announced in a Medium blog. Uport partnered with Zug, commonly known as the “Crypto Valley” for hosting a number of industry startups, on the program to register residential IDs on the blockchain, enabling access to e-services such as proof of residency and online voting. Uport has been developing the platform in cooperation with ti&m, its Swiss partner. And the application of blockchain in recruitment sector is the key to its bottleneck, just like what Curriculum Vitae system is doing now. The registration marks a milestone since it demonstrates that a city government can issue a digital verification of citizenship using the Ethereum blockchain. Uport’s partnership with Zug supports the goal of providing a global, self-sovereign identity system. Digital citizenship allows greater trust between government agencies and citizens. It also provides opportunities for better digital interactions among governments and citizens. Zug plans to offer an e-voting initiative in the Spring of 2018. After downloading the Uport app, a citizen of Zug registers their Uport ID on the Ethereum blockchain, creating a global identifier. This address is a smart contract address known as a Uport proxy contract. Citizens register their newly registered Uport ID to sign in to the Zug ID web portal by scanning a QR code. Once the Zug web portal is authenticated, the citizen enters a pre-existing Zug ID number along with personal information. This requires in-person verification by a city administrator. Once the registration is done, the citizen gets 14 days to visit the Zug office in person with an official government ID document. The Zug official signs into the admin portal with their Uport ID while they are in the records office. The official can then cross check the citizen’s information against the documents in person. If the application is approved, the citizen receives a Uport citizenship ID.
