  1. All cryptos work along that principle (no central control). Well, not all, but all good ones :)
  2. Yes, it has happened before - it's a bug, not a hack. Things will most likely return to normal tomorrow, with a complete superblock. Devs are looking into it.
  3. Only Poloniex can help you. They will, but you'll have to wait at least 2-3 days, their support is completely overwhelmed.
  4. Noobs recently reported on reddit that they are staking once a day even with only 1000 GRC (mag~100 and biggest whales offline obviously). 10k GRC is now 854 USD, might discourage a noob from going solo.
  5. I'll post it on futurism. Most likely, it will get deleted, but it's worth a try. EDIT: I posted it in futurology, but it does not even appear as an active discussion. Probably because of the Steemit link.
  6. 620 views on Steemit, not bad. Please, continue sharing: https://steemit.com/gridcoin/@vortac/while-crypto-is-booming-scientists-across-the-world-lack-the-computing-power-to-find-a-cure-for-diseases-which-can-affect-us-all
  7. That's the right thing to do, yes. And copy everthing to a USB stick or external HDD while you are at it. Better safe than sorry.
  8. You must keep wallet.dat and gridcoinresearch.conf. But the latter might be corrupted, runtime errors are common with corrupted gridcoinresearch.conf
  9. GPUGRID is listed as "Multi-GPU" project, but in fact it's only Nvidia
  10. Onlypuzzles plays like a pro and the leaderboard shows it. I would be interested in getting some chess lessons from him (and pay in GRC, because pro lessons are seldom free).
  11. Real novice here. Now running Einstein and LHC. All other task suspended and projects flagged for no new task. Anything else I should do? BOINC Pentathlon is not mandatory, run any other whitelisted BOINC project you like, you will get your magnitude and your Gridcoins (and help science).
  12. Griddcoin Price Rises By More Than 300% In a Few Hours: http://www.livebitcoinnews.com/gridcoin-price-rises-300-hours P.S. They speak highly of Gridcoin, but bear in mind it's a new crypto-website with little traffic
  13. New article about Gridcoin on The Merkle: https://themerkle.com/how-can-i-contribute-to-science-right-now/
  14. I have another idea for Gridcoinstats: hosting an official copy of GridcoinResearch.msi (Windows wallet). Because http://download.gridcoin.us/download/downloadstake/GridcoinResearch.msi is down at the moment and newbs are out of luck trying to install Gridcoin. A backup copy is always a good idea.
  15. http://download.gridcoin.us/download/downloadstake/GridcoinResearch.msi doesn't work! Internal server error. Please, ASAP?
