From some of the stats I've seen it seems many people start trying to earn gridcoin and give up.
I imagine they ask for starter coin, use the faucets, and maybe get a small pay out from the pool.
And then stop putting as much time in trying to optimizes earnings, or checking what they have made, or give up trying to buy GRC from the exchanges for now. And eventually forget about gridcoin.
If you see this post, and later are no longer interested in gridcoin please consider doing on of the following:
1) Backup and verify your wallet in case you want to revisit later.
2) Donate your GRC to new people on these fourms like others likely did for you.
3) Give the coins to the faucets:
4) I've created an address for 'Thanks for all the Fish' donations to me:
My idea for funds to this address is to Pay It Forward, ideally after I can start solo mining and can stake within 180 days.
I think it is very important for more people to solo mine and stake for the security and stability of the network / block-chain.
I am also working on a gridcoin 101 blog based on my experience and what I found helpful and current. If you found this to be a good post and would like to support my efforts I have another address setup.
My 'Patreon' address:
I'm using a bunch of address to track different kinds of community interaction and plan on discussing the experience and responses on my blog, so please leave a message in the transaction. Thanks!
