  1. Hi guys, regarding the issue we have with the new European privacy rules at WorldCommunityGrid and Einstein@Home, I can tell you that I requested WCG that they offer a tickbox about yes/no to put the crunching stats public or not (for every individual user to choose from) Actually, many bragging banners and special websites like boincstats.com rely on that kind of data, so it should be user's option to "keep it hidden" or no. It's not like only we were to be affected. Most people at WCG and many other projects are badge collectors. So.... all badge data would be non-respective of that new EU-law... and seriously, I guess, a lot of users are going to be angry about that.... not just us here. A lot of users will go.... "no badge? no crunching!". In the meantime, focus on the projects that are "non-EU" or that otherwise will skip this privacy rules... I expect that the big projects with lots of financial ressources might want to comply, but many smaller projects won't really care, especially if non-EU based... if problem persists, we maybe want more whitelisted from other parts of the world. ;) I assume, on the midterm, this will not be a major problem. It's just sad as the big projects of course bring more people, but basically we're here to "crunch for good" and in the end, I gladly will donate my computing power to smaller projects instead if the big ones hassle around. :D crunch on... :P
  2. Xaminmo, thx for the answer ;) Uhm, I noticed that bittrex still has the GRC-wallet in "inactive status / Wallet Offline - awaiting dev response". Since latest wallet was specially designed *for exchanges* I wonder if those got a note that there was a new wallet edition for them? (Unless maybe in the meantime there is a new version in the pipeline that is meant for them...)
  3. My update on Win-PC worked great. Running just fine... one notice still on my wishlist: The integrated update function has not been re-implemented. This "ease of use upgrade option" is very important for the grand public. Also, I'm curious if the crypto-exchanges will adopt this version as those guys have been set "on hold" by the dev team. Guess, I'll find out soon... XD
  4. Hi Tyro. Sorry to read about your issue. I remember having read that some online exchanges haven't updated their master wallet to the newest edition, respectively they might not have downloaded the most recent blocks snapshot to be on the right chain. So sadly I guess, you need to ask them why they are lagging behind... because my wallet is running just fine.... as a result, I only can imagine, they have not implemented the right thing on their exchange service. I hope your issue will be sorted soon.
  5. hehehehe.... BTC "I am your father" GRC "Nooooooooooooooooo" :D Jedi master "Join the dark fork you must!" Hahahaha.... lmao! XD MMmmmm.... we somehow must improve grc on the fork side of life... because we otherwise won't be able to efficiently use it in real life if we are on the forks too often. Also, I wish that the integrated upgrade function be reinstalled again. Because it improves ease of use which is essential when it comes to common people use. If we have to manually download it from git or other sites, it feels like Windows 95. While that's Ok for us crunching geeks here, it doesn't help with less involved people. Just look at Apple. Ease of use wins it all. We also need an automated repairwallet option running at the startup of the wallet. Why? Well, my wallet is running smoothly, I did not expect any issues, did "repairwallet" just to check, and loooook at that..... a difference of 38grc showed up! So, *even* if your wallet runs great, you want to do a "repairwallet" once in a while, just to make sure the displayed amount is right. Keep on crunching guys! Push it! It's winter! Beside science, crunching keeps our homes nice and warm.... XD Have a great day!
  6. Hi MikeK. If you look at gridcoinstats.eu under the statistics, you can see from the graphic that there is a new version being tested by some people. So I expect there will be a new mandatory update coming up soon, set to fix the fork issue :) Maybe you want to read this for a bit more details on the fork issue.... so trust me, our dev team is on it. :) https://steemit.com/gridcoin/@donkeykong9000/gridcoin-github-forking-due-to-beacon-checks Have a great day and enjoy your BOINC crunching! :D <
  7. Hi folks. I just checked gridcoin.us on firefox for android (latest build) To my taste, upper frame was too large and the compare table wouldn't fit the screen (like frame breaker style in the old days). Tilting screen to landscape would not help with the table issue. (Good rework by the way, i am curious about looking at it on my home screen)
  8. Hi guys, I hope you are doing well today. :) While I read erkan's post about the missing projects in the last superblock, I was thinking about about what could trigger a missing project in the superblock. Most likely, I guess that as the procedure of data collect from the various projects stay the same all the time and the missing projects usually vary (a bit) every time with some projects more or less included in the superblocks, and on theoretical base could happen to any project at any time, I assume that the requested data file might not have been available while the superblock got generated. As the superblock can be produced anytime all around the clock, it might be likely to occur when some projects are in "internal updates" in order to update their own user stats (and badges). I am thinking of the project of WorldCommunitGrid which, if I remember right, does this twice a day every 12hrs. If the superblock is produced exactly at the time of the update, I can very well understand this not being included in the superblock. While I assume it would be technically doable to have a "mirror-file" as backup file for each project data if the original is unavailable, in order to get the previous update from this mirror-file, I also could imagine this said mirror file to be a potential security issue, so I personally prefer to have missing projects in the superblock rather than having a superblock with all the included projects but with the possibility of this being able to be manipulated. So, in the end, I am fully Ok with missing projects in the superblock every now and then... they will eventually be included again and user paid retroactively anyway. Luckily, right now, I am staking multiple times a day but we want to keep in mind we will be switching to V8-staking in less than 2000 blocks (in about 50-60hrs from me typing right now). I will continue to stake "often enough" (time will tell how often) but others might not. Of course, I could be totally wrong. ;) All right, I'm going to have lunch, have a great day and some incredible crunching. :) PS: I also remember having listened to a very interesting interview with Valter from TN-Grid and was wondering about what happened to his project stats. 7 out of his 10 top daily contributors are part of our team (includes our pools). This is amazing. It truly shows how the effect of our coin can impact especially the smaller research projects once they get whitelisted. :) We need to get the buzz going!
  9. Hi folks! :) I was reading about different opinions on steem about the V8-issue. So, as most of those users are here anyway, here's my 50cts about that: 1) If it serves security, then it's only beneficial even it it comes with downsides. Security always has to come first. Because if the blockchain is insecure or can be manipulated to prevent others from staking, this definitely can lead to some kind of abuse (reminding me of DDOS-attacks onto websites). In our case, it could have put a damp on our grc-value, enabling a win on a tader's platform (like stock-option manipulation) In general, everything must be done so that the blockchain remains secure. Otherwise we need no blockchain. Because as you know, there are people on the planet that are trying to find every possible breach in every notable cryptocurreny (or wallets) if there is some important amount of digital money to be stolen. But I guess this is no news to anyone here in this forum. 2) I understand that starting block 1010000 the mag will not be taken into account for staking and I read here that you need 10k-20k in order stake daily. Personally, I am no big fan of pool mining. Why? Because it does *not* serve decentralization and you have to rely on other people (pool op's) in oder to get paid. I do not like that idea and if I had to join a pool about 2 years ago, I might not have done so. I prefer to fully mine on my own. But on the other hand, I understand that pool-mining is somewhat a must if you want to mine any of the bigger coins anyway, so if pool-mining for all the noobs become an indirect requirement in order to get paid, then we need some of our big heads here to get our "pool issues" settled very FAST because I assume, only a small amount of people will invest into the required amount of GRC in order to stake on a 2-3 day basis. As of me texting, this would require about 300€ of investment in order to buy those 10k of GRC and 150€ for 5k. From the perspective of most Boinc-crunchers (at-home gamers/researchers crunching a couple of hours a day!) that is A LOT OF MONEY and we must admit, it needs some real flippin' commitment from them to invest that much into (how they see) a new coin with nearly no reputation outside its own mining team, as the GRC-train is only starting to roll. So I guess most users might not take that financial risk and go for the pool instead. (*If* they wish/choose to hassle around with pools!) 3) As from the last sentence in point 2, I assume there *will* be a steady run on the pools from +-90% of all the new joiners, so get the pools going! As I'm not even able to handle wordpress, I for sure will not run a pool. And remember to put the required (pool-)info on top news on Gridcoinstats.eu as well as gridcoin.us otherwise we'll be flooded with questions like "Why am I not staking?" 4) I noticed that even the 2 active pools with superhigh mags are at most making +- 100-200 grc a day on some major whitelisted projects... so I guess, the price of GRC is set to rise. Or at least, it should. I have no idea when this will happen, but it's very likely it will happen at some point. And as this will happen, it is even *more unlikely* that people will join GRC by just crunching on their own because their initial investment into GRC would go up as well. If we want more users to join in, we need a simple "1-2-3 pool setup" on frontpage right now, because V8-staking is just around the corner. Thanks to all here trying to improve this coin and thanks to our dev's for another version of our wallet. Have a great weekend. ;) -From the strategist at UnitedNetwokers-
  10. @LennStar Re: My info says ??? ***** I upgraded 4 wallets on windows without any issues using the upgrade button. Initial block loading a bit slow, but that's on my end I guess. Looks like great improvements have been done to our wallets. Thanks to the dev's. :) EDIT (added txt): Ahhh, OK, I get what you mean... you mean the build info 43.5 is missing at the "About Gridcoin" option. Indeed, I have this as well. But the wallets themselves are running fine so far.
  11. Only 75 blocks to go. :D i might miss the party because i'm at work. :D have a cup op champagne! :D i will do so when i get back home later in the day.
  12. As usual, thanks Rob for this great work on our wallet. I upgraded without any issue using the integrated upgrade button and it's running smoothly on my W10 pro 64 V1703 so far. :)
  13. Die Zahl der Auszahlungen richtet sich nach der aktuellen Zahl an GRC in deinem Wallet. Je mehr GRC, desto öfters wirst du ausgezahlt werden. Da du laut der Stats-Seite nur knapp 5GRC im Wallet hast, dürfte das dauern. Willst du die Wartedauer kürzen, musst du Poolmining machen. Poolmining ist allerdings nicht wirklich mein Ding. Ich würde einfach Solomining weitermachen, und die Wartedauer eben aussitzen. Bei mir hatte es zu Beginn aus recht lange gedauert bis die ersten Coins reinkamen. Inzwischen laüft's sehr gut. Was den Superblock betrifft, so dürfte normalerweise etwa ein Superblock pro Tag anfallen -> https://www.gridcoinstats.eu/about.php Was die Strompreise betrifft, ja da hilft nur die Flucht in den tiefen Ostblock, nach China, oder sonstwo.... aber in Westeuropa... "naja". Desswegen sollte die Profitabilität in einem Land mit hohen Strompreisen also nicht an erster Stelle stehen. Siehe die Gridcoins als Dreingabe an die du für's Boinc-Crunching bekommst welches du auch ohne GRC sowieso getan hättest(!). Und warte einfach ab bis der Gridcoin eine Bewertung von 10k$ erreicht. :D :P Viel Glück ;)
