  1. And to specifically answer these two questions: - Update notices get pinned on r/gridcoin on Reddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/gridcoin/), announced on Twitter (https://twitter.com/GridcoinNetwork), announced on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/gridcoins/) and announced by the Gridcoin Testing Coordinator, @barton26, on Steemit (https://steemit.com/@barton26). Upgrade announcements are also spread by many other respected members of the community but the aforementioned are the specific notices that you should check after seeing any other upgrade announcement and take seriously. - No, at the moment you will get a newer version
  2. Will relay this to the web-dev team and credit you. (I know you don't want the answer but I'm going to include it anyway for others that view this thread.) For now, at the time of writing, the version that you download from the Gridcoin.us website is As mentioned, was mandatory (you absolutely MUST upgrade if you're on an older version) and is highly recommended for Windows users (so if you're on point eight or point nine then it's best that you go ahead and upgrade again to point ten)
  3. While I support developer pay and the increase, there needs to be justification for $60 per hour. This needed to happen before putting the poll live and it is disappointing that it wasn't. Since the poll is already live this will have to be done retrospectively. For example: Developers have done a great job in the past six months [citation needed]; The value of blockchain development is more in line with $60/h than with $30/h [citation needed]; The cost of higher pay to the foundation is acceptable [citation needed]; Gridcoin wants to attract more developers and $60/h is an attractive compensation rate; Gridcoin would like to encourage more of the core dev team to invoice for their work which higher pay will do; And / or other reasons.
  4. I should have been more clear in my comment as I'm aware that these polls are to gauge community interest in looking into these areas - not actually implementing them. ... However, I do mean that (in my mind) it should not be an issue for 2018.
  5. • During the months of discussion, TCD was a very popular proposal. Unless some strong, viable criticism is raised, I will be voting in favor of implementing Total Credit Delta. • I am strongly in favor of a yes vote. I believe research is at the core of Gridcoin and should be at least a part of securing the blockchain. • Personally, I think there is little reason to implement either superblock payouts or Manual Earned Research Reward Claims yet - development attention should be focused elsewhere for the time being. At the moment I will be voting "No". I am open to being convinced I'm wrong; change my view...
  6. @gino_cj, @GapraCooLz & @rocendroll Unfortunately at the moment if you have few coins (2000 is the generally advised amount) it is extremely unlikely (near zero probability) that you stake a block – the requirement to collect your research reward - before six months when the reward for your crunching starts to expire. Please consider buying the coins you need or joining grcpool.com. Feel free to ask any questions regarding this.
  7. For those interested the following article summarizes the 45th Gridcoin hangout: https://steemit.com/gridcoin/@geebell/gridcoin-45th-hangout-summary

  9. Regarding the first part, are you (casually) announcing a privacy breach? Regarding the rest, are you suggesting we move to a new Mumble server or not...?
  10. Regarding the name "Neural Network", I would like to add my single opinion to the single opinions of @jringo, @cm, @barton26 and @huppdiwupp that it should be changed.
  11. Total Credit Delta, TCD, is awesome! Please see Brod's suggestion with regard to bunkering and TCD. Finally, note that TCD can be implemented without Superblock Payments. Regarding the scaling of Superblock Payments, does this mean that it is possible to scale in terms of block size? Can it also scale to this level in terms of computation required to calculate everything required for each of the 10 000 recipients? Could you, please post (or link) the pdf of the Dash audit?
  12. And here's part two https://steemit.com/gridcoin/@geebell/grc-classroom-002-wallet-tour-part-two-includes-backup-and-encryption

  14. No. Forks are something that comes with blockchain technology. By keeping your wallet running you, along with hundreds of others, are helping secure the network which means it will happen less (at the moment, the more coins staking the smaller the chance of this happening). The developers of Gridcoin are also actively looking into ways to reduce the number of times this happens.
