" Gridcoin securely rewards volunteer distributed computing performed upon the BOINC platform in a decentralized manner on top of proof of stake. Projects range from attempting to cure diseases to searching for extraterrestrial life! You can distribute virtually any kind of distributed computing process through BOINC (utilizing GPU/CPU/Sensors/etc). The BOINC network is currently made up of approximately 500k active users and 4 million registered users - a massive potential userbase for Gridcoin and a serious amount of computing power available for scientific research!"
In my opinion, if you're "in it to win it", you do so with your own ways and means. Ask questions, come up with your own ideas, crunch your projects. Complaining that GRC isn't worth what you'd like to be doesn't help anyone. The people in this community are doing their best by working on the Gridcoin Research Wallet, supporting those that have problems with the wallet, coming up with ideas that will secure the future of Gridcoin and, if you don't know this, they interview possible new BOINC Project managers/developers.for inclusion in GRC rewards There are numerous other things they/we do; to numerous for me to list here.
There are still many of us that got into this through BOINC and still believe in Scientia Humana Libertas.
If anyone has something to contribute Gridcoin has IRC channels, Slack, Steemit, and a few other mediums. The YouTubes has some interesting videos (Gridcoin Hangouts I think) where contributors in the community hash over ideas, what's been implemented, what hasn't, and it gives the listener a general idea of/a history of Gridcoin's growth. Personally, I dig the accents.
