I've been doing boinc since a long time as a screensaver, 11 years on and off now i guess and in the last years also on smartphone and almost got around 2 years of runtime.
My favorite projects are mostly WCG and recently CSG, and some asteroids and seti too, I generally love cancer and clean power/water projects.
Then gridcoin came to my attention and I saw that, in my opinion, there is a cryptocurrency actually worth standing behind after all without the extreme negative impact on the climate, resources and sometimes obscure criminal dealings you hear in the news and if there is a way to be more motivated to let it crunch than just some altruism and ideals.. well why not :)
However I got some questions after doing some research of my own;
-after syncing the wallet for a very long time and let boinc do it's thing as usual, it says invalid cpid, is this because of that beacon you have to send? also i have been scrounging up some decimals worth of gridcoin but one of the faucets seems to be dry now.
-Is work being completed on android smartphones being rewarded?
-Running the diagnostic it says my clock is off by like 25 million minutes (hah wow), although my pc is being managed automatically by the time servers, als an outbound TCP connection failed; is this a problem?
I've seen on the forum that people aren't afraid of asking for a kickstart so if someone is feeling exceptionally generous:
Anyway thanks for the read and extra thanks if someone of you could verify the problems i'm having!
