    Set your Primegrid prefs to only run PPS-Sieve and you should be good to go. It doesn't give any massive amounts of mag but for the power it consumes and the little noise it produces it's ok.

    I have a GTX 650Ti and I do Primegrid on it.

    This is weird. I can see your vote in the chain but the TX does not contain the vote fee. EDIT: Ok I was looking at it wrong. The TX fee is there so there is the vote cast for your CPID.
  4. New Coin Launch Announcement - GRC - GridCoin

    We are working on solving the chain situation right now, see my reddit post. We have fixed the crashes and one of the forking issues, and what remains is to prevent additional forks when the clients reorganize. This is currently being worked on.
  5. New Coin Launch Announcement - GRC - GridCoin

    We are working on both the crashes (seem to be fixed) and the forking situation. See reddit post. It looks promising so far.

    Good news is that all of the points have either been fixed or are being worked on: Staking is needed to secure the network. Alternative ways of claiming the rewards are being looked into, but right now if you don't want to purchase GRC to stake or don't want to wait for the rewards there are pools to turn to (this is true for every coin, be it PoS or PoW). Exchanges have been contacted but we cannot force them to include us. Many of them also come with a listing fee so getting listed on all would become expensive. Do you have some exchanges where you think our presence is missing? Superblocks have not been borked for quite a while now, right? released in September last year. At least I haven't heard about issues since then. Crashes have been a pain, I agree. Some were addressed in and it will hopefully be more stable now. UI is being redesigned right now, though it does not trying to create the smallest wallet window possible. However, now is a good time to see what information can be thrown out and what can be rearranged to improve the space utilization. Poll title was changed.

    The upcoming release will fix at least one, possibly two, silent shutdowns which affected Windows users only.

    We cannot do global credits as the credits are given out locally per project. For the sake of clarifying what I'm aiming for, consider that we have two projects in the whitelist; SETI with 100k credits gained in the last SB, or some other time period of our choice, and WCG with 50k credits gained. On the next SB SETI has declined to a credit increse of 80k, giving it a 0.8 shares of the SB's magnitude. WCG on the other hand now increased its credits from 50k to 70k, giving it 1.4 shares of the SB: - SETI: 100k -> 80k = 0.8 - WCG: 50k -> 70k = 1.4 Assuming 50000 available magnitude to be allocated: - Total shares in SB: 0.8 + 1.4 = 2.2 - SETI: 50000 * (0.8 / 2.2) ~ 18181 magnitude allocated - WCG: 50000 * (1.4 / 2.2) ~ 31800 magnitude allocated - You provided 250 credits to SETI this SB so you get 250 / 80000 * 18181 = 56.81 magnute from SETI - You provided 0 credits to WCG so you get nothing If that makes any sense. If a project does not increase (due to lack of WUs for example) it gets no magnitude allocated to it. If you decide to switch projects you do not lose magnitude provided that the projects give out reasonably similar proportional local credits based on work done. It does heavily favor magnitude to new projects which see a sudden rush of researchers. Not sure how to combat that. I'm hoping my proposal can either be tweaked to make it somewhat foolproof or shot down entirely so we can focus on something better. This, along with the Linux magnitude scraper, can be implemented in the current client as well if we wish to do so. Edit: @huppdiwupp pointed out that this will even increase the incentive to project hop. The idea might not be doable.

    Currently we allocate magnitude evenly across projects. This has indeed shown to be an issue when a project runs out of work. The lucky ones who crunched the project are then rewarded fully until their RAC decays. This also means that in order to maximize profit you have to continuously chase the projects with the least competition. This goes against the spirit of the coin and I would sleep a little bit better if I could just pick the projects I'm interested in and be rewarded fairly. So, my proposal is that each project is allocated magnitude based on how much it has progressed since the last superblock. Then each researcher is allocated magnitude based on how much they helped that project progress. I know it's not perfect but in my opinion it is a more fair distribution than the current one. If a project stops handing out WUs then that project is not allocated any more magnitude. If you switch projects you get credited roughly the same as on your previous project since it's all about pushing the project forwards. This also removes the RAC buildup/decay. There are at least two flaws in my proposal: - WU hoarding - How do you determine project progression on new project? I see WU hoarding as a non issue in the long run, but the initial progression increase must be solved in some way. Right now I don't know how.
  10. OS X builds - Feedback & Bug Reporting

    I'd like for us to include OSX builds in the Travis build process. Can anyone help us out with that?

    If I got the URL right it looks like we can't access their stats. Or their servers were down:

    Yeah, my scribbles in gedit are way too ghetto. Need a proper tool, or at least an easy to use spreadsheet.

    Directly to the bounty claimer is probably easiest.

    It will be difficult to implement since the wallets have no idea who owns what. It is technically possible to do it like gridcoinstats does but it comes a cost on both RAM and performance. It is much simpler to just pay everyone the same for the same work done. Regarding mixing age into the formula, that was remove when we switched to the _previous_ stake engine (V3) since it was insecure. Move your wallet to cold storage for a few months and get a big stake boost when you come back.
