  1. Pool (beta) This pool is under active development and may have issues/bugs from time to time. However things have been pretty stable and everything, including payments, are working normally. Please leave any issues/bugs you run into here or leave me some feedback! ♥ The front page of the site should have all the info you need to be able to connect to the pool and start researching right away. If anything is unclear or you think something should be added, please let me know! I want to make this as easy as possible! This pool works a little differently then the previous pool. So I will give a brief summary on how it works. Instead of relying on BAM!, I have created my own account manager which will handle attaching the pool's projects to your BOINC client. It will also upload your host information to my database, allowing you to link your host to the pool automatically, you do not have to do anything. I have a script that runs every two hours to pull host RACs from the pool's account on each project. This is then updated in my database and displayed on your profile page. For now payments will be done semi manually, in that, once we stake a block, or once a day, or whenever I feel it should be necessary, I will run a payment script that reads everyone's RAC, compares it to everyone else in the pool and assigns you percents. "Project Percent", which is the percent of your host in that project compared to all other pool members in that project. "Total Percent", which is the percent of your host compared to the entire pool, all projects. Your total percent is now the final percent used against the pool's staking balance. For now, the script crafts a sendmany command that I can use in the wallet's console. (This will be made all automatic once I am happy everything works correctly and is stable) A word about my account manager, this does mean you wont be able to use other managers while using mine, however once you have confirmed your host and projects are showing up on your profile, it would be perfectly fine to stop using the account manager, your RAC is updated independently of the account manager. Just make sure to connect once again if you want to add new projects or change settings. Also, it is possible to research projects on this pool as well as research your own projects. Solo and Pool researching can be done together so long as your wallet is setup to your solo CPID BEFORE you start using the pool. Thank you to everyone on IRC who has helped me test the pool, I wouldn't have been able to get this far without you all. ♥ Pool's CPID: 204d178f9b6d4de25297c99fed0ed860 Projects not currently supported: bitcoin utopia - Pointless without being able to set apps leiden classical - Doesn't support weak auth keys rosetta@home - Doesn't support weak auth keys world community grid - May add in the future yafu - Not accepting new accounts yoyo@home - Doesn't support weak auth keys To-Do: (Updated: Jan 10th, 2016) - Add more info to profile (Last payment date/amount) - Leaderboards and overall pool stats.

  2. Gridcoin Research .exe Assertion Failed Hello, I run Windows 7, since I upgraded to the latest Wallet Version, it kept crashing after a few minutes... Since yesterday, it wont start at all, always a Error Message - Assertion Failed. I attach a screenshot of the Error. Every Help is very appreciated! Thx Martin
  3. Research Coin Excuse me if this is in the wrong section, but I have a couple of questions. Some where I read that any research you do that is whitelisted you receive your gridcoin? Usually what is it and how much roughly? If you accumulated 65,770 credits should you not see some type of coin for it? And if not how long would you have to wait?
  4. South Korean Researchers Predict Bitcoin Price Using Forum Data An open access, peer-reviewed research paper published on May 12, 2017, by researchers from Korea University and Kangnam University in South Korea has explained a method for predicting the fluctuation in the bitcoin price and transactions based on user opinions posted on online forums...

  6. How do you research a particular cryptocurrency? Do you even dig in deeper before buying??? Here a couple of handy sites and sources I use when looking into a particular cryptocurrency. Yes, the technical analysis and charts are very important but knowing the story and fundamentals behind the project are just as critical. Especially if you're committing capital for the long term. Having a strong belief and conviction in the project will help you hold through the ups and downs.

  10. To Open up Science and knowledge creation by means of the blockchain (r)evolution. To bring science towards reproducible results, autonomous and free data handling and incentivisation of true innovation. To guide the social, technical, cultural, political, economical and legal impacts of the blockchain (r)evolution to science. To support scientific communication and education. To free science from any kind of censorship, central point of failure or other potential deadends. Allow technical innovation without centralisation. To provide insights to current stakeholders, science workers, research funders and institutions, and to constructively involve them in the transition process so as to prevent unnecessary friction costs among stakeholders (agnostic of the deep societal entanglement of science and research). To provide alternative systems that may amend instead of forcefully replace existing systems. To evolve sciences artificial competitions and markets so as to incentivise outliers and not the mean. To provide novel, less overhead (and empty ‘conduct’ creating) concepts. To make them unpredictable for system gamers. To evolve business models, analyse their impact on the scientific culture and provide roadmaps to autonomous and continuous scientific endeavors and their applicability. To replace our marketing heavy economy with innovation heavy economy. To solve the innovator’s dilemma. To make the most efficient and sustainable use of our unique resources on earth, to accommodate an increasing number of humans and finally to make humanity multi-planetary, to prevent extinction of our species and to extend the ultimate frontier to become independent of our earth.

  11. Researchers, I wanted to create an official thread for supporting Feel free to also use the below methods to contact me for support... 1) facebook page: (and good to follow for updates and pool information) 2) pool's email: 3) sometimes the IRC as 'bgb': Also just a couple quick bullet points about me: I started crunching on Seti@Home about 17 years ago before BOINC existed and haven't missed much crunching since then. I have been involved in cryptocurrency related projects for 5 years. I work full-time as a programmer (19 years) in the telecommunications industry.
  12. I spoke in December about a Literature Review I had to perform as an university assignment, I chose a BOINC related topic & have obtained permission to upload this here. Bear in mind that the formatting (margins) are so that you can write in the margins, so each page doesn't contain a lot of information. The 'lit review' also comes off more as a paper review than a true lit review of the subject I chose (derp), so it's not an amazing paper (still worth a read though). If you (the reader) are one of the individuals behind one of the papers I've reviewed please don't be triggered, I would be interested in further discussing the topics in a future hangout though. Collusion detection and prevention mechanisms within Volunteer Desktop Grids Best regards, CM. ----- Would anyone be interested in a BiBTeX file containing BOINC research papers? Would anyone be interested in performing their own literature reviews, or original research regarding BOINC?

For more information and real-time updates, please visit Cryptonaire (number #1 cryptocurrency research and investment firm). Top 5 Cryptocurrencies to Invest in: Don’t you wish you can go back to February 14, 2011 and buy a thousand Bitcoins for the price of $1,000? Then wait around until November 25th, 2013 to sell all of them and make a million dollars! Yes we all do. Unfortunately we can’t go back, but what you can do; is make a new smart investment. Always remember something; every currency in the world has a country connected to it (even though cryptocurrencies aren’t officially currencies yet). The population of each country and the economical state matters and go hand in hand. Although, a cryptocurrency doesn’t have a country. It has the internet. Adding all the currencies in the world into one. Expect to see over 3 billion people use cryptocurrencies, because over 3 billion people use the internet every day. Here are the top 5 cryptocurrencies that are predicted to skyrocket: 1. Ripple (XRP) Ripple is based on shared, public database or ledger, which uses a consensus process that allows for payments, exchanges and remittance in a distributed process. Ripple tries its best to keep it free of charge for any sort of exchange or trade. They will have a hard time with third-parties, but why go to third parties when the officials themselves are offering to trade or exchange with no fee. Ripple has been successful adapting big banks to their system. Professionalism and high quality development is being put into this cryptocurrency. Currently Ripple has teamed up with biggest banks such as RBC, CIBC and more. These banks are currently using Ripple as a Interbank blockchain, but later on it is expected that these banks will be transfering funds more often through Ripples gateway. Ripple is considered to be the best cryptocurrency for long-term investment. 2. Bitcoin (BTC) Yes, we all know Bitcoin and its nothing new. Although, people started to see that its flattening out anywhere in the $500’s. Sorry to tell you, but it’s not stopping there. This cryptocurrency has the most merchants that accepts bitcoin. With large volumes through companies such as Tesla; we could see bitcoin double in value. Bitcoin is the mother of all cryptocurrencies and many of the upcoming and startup cryptocurrencies are revolving around Bitcoin itself. Think about it like this. If you are gardening, and would like to plant tomatoes from scratch you’d need to put the seeds (new cryptocurrencies) into the soil (Bitcoin). The more the seeds grow into a tomato plant the more space it takes up. You’ll need more soil for the other plants just to grow just as healthy. Which means more soil (bitcoin). Even though many of you are hesitant to invest into bitcoins due to the high price, it is still worth investing into because it won’t stop there. 3. Ethereum (ETH) Ethereum is a public blockchain platform with programmable transaction functionality, and a cryptocurrency itself. It provides a decentralized virtual machine that can execute peer-to-peer contracts using a cryptocurrency called Ether. Many other cryptocurrencies are using Ethereum’s system to run there cryptocurrency. Ethereum has been doing great at representing a professional image to the cryptocurrency and a strong foundation. Many of the major banks have been looking into ways to adopt the blockchain effect. Ethereum is at the top of the list. With many Chinese, Russian and Canadian private investors backing up the cryptocurrency; we will see a bright future in our daily lives involving Ethereum. The cryptocurrency Ethereum is attracting the eyes of the investors, banks, politicians, and consumers. You might be looking at the future mainstream cryptocurrency. 4. Monero (XMR) Monero has been known for continuous successful effort to make the most anonymous cryptocurrency. Monero has been known to be used on the Dark nets largests marketplace where millions of sales transactions are processed every month. Businesses and Organizations have been using Monero due to its healthy value and anonymity for its trace. The Monero development team has been working on Paybee. A payment processing gateway for users and merchants to accept a variety of payment methods and get settled and converts instantly to Monero, Bitcoin or Fiat. This will ease the process for more merchants to use Monero and become much more comfortable with the cryptocurrency. Slowly but surely this will be a cryptocurrency that will start branching off to investment firms that do large sums of transfers to dodge public awareness and Darknet Marketplaces and will sky rocket the value. The biggest factors also include the supply and demand. Currently there is approximately 13,00,000 coins available for supply (which is not a lot). Which means there is not enough coins for the demand, so grab your coins while you can. It’s bound for the price to go up, to create difficulty in creating a positive demand or the little supply. The supply is bound to decrease every year. 5. Litecoin (LTC) Litecoin has been around for a very long time and has shown success at keeping a healthy value to its cryptocurrencies. Also the largest Bitcoin wallet provider Coinbase has added the cryptocurrency to GDAX for trading. The longstanding trusted cryptocurrency has been a safe long term investment for quite a while now. Picture Litecoin to be the 5 dollar bill compared to the 100 dollar bill (bitcoin). To have a successful cryptocurrency it needs three things: professionalism, quantitative flow, and trust. Litecoin has it all.

  16. Hey! On our Coin Cafe blog, I'm working on an interview series about companies that accept Bitcoin. I posted on the Goods board too, but a fair amount of the companies are accepting Bitcoin for services, so I thought I'd post here as well. It's been really fascinating to hear the viewpoints of all of these different people that accept Bitcoin! I hope you enjoy the interviews, and there will definitely be more to come! Here are the companies I've interviewed so far that accept Bitcoin for services (click the name to read the full interview)... The Techno Tourist (boutique/festival travel agency): "Transaction fees have increased significantly, and there’s a lot more red tape around sending money, so it’s become extremely difficult to accept money from people. So I think that once we start to give customers the option to pay lower fees [with Bitcoin], the choice is going to be pretty easy for them." Autism Speaks (research/charity): "We’re always looking for new and innovative ways to fundraise, and I think that online fundraising is an area that everybody talks about. Everybody feels strongly that it is the future of how the younger generation, the millennials, will be donating to organizations. But there’s not really many easy ways to make these donations." Wallis Creative (website design): "At this point, I decided that an agency who can’t see the incredible potential of new technology like Bitcoin isn’t the agency I wanted to be part of. That’s when I decided to leave and set up my own online marketing agency." Many more to come soon! Thanks everyone! - Emily
  17. We are a growing startup working on the problems of data accessibility and visualization in Bitcoin and across the larger cryptocurrency space. Through the course of our work, we read and index much of the academic and industry research that is published online. Recently, we realized that the internal resource we have created might be of value as a reference compendium for researchers everywhere. As entrepreneurs and engineers ourselves, we understand that access to research and to data lays the foundation for much of the innovation and development we see in the news each day. Accordingly, we are pleased to announce the public release of the Smith and Crown research index. We look forward to your feedback, comments, and submissions. We hope that you find this resource as useful as we do.
  18. Hey everyone, I'm doing my research project for school about cryptocurrencies. I was wondering if i could have some detailed answers to this question. I need other peoples thoughts on the topic. Can some cryptocurrencies be viable and ethical for the future? Please answer this specifically and in detail. Thank you for your time. Zac.

  21. SmallChange (SMC) - a 'faster' version of Litecoin which also uses scrypt as a proof of work scheme and is intended for microtransactions. *) 15 seconds block targets: beat that MinCoin! *) 42 007 680 total coins *) no subsidy within the first 3 days and after approximately 5 years; in between: 4 coins per generated block *) difficulty retargets every 0.35 days *) currently peers are looked up over IRC only *) currently no block checkpoints are in the code (but could be easily added) Other than that, this coin is exactly like Litecoin and should by no means be used as a real cryptocurrency. All of the coin parameters are chosen arbitrarily or at most with 'fairness' towards everyone in mind. [..] But head over here for the client and more information: Cheers! Any mining efforts are probably wasted efforts. Imagine this coin to be like a small Bitcoin testnet with it's own set of (untested) rules. However, Balthazar has put a Windows build up here: On Linux (e.g. Ubuntu, Debian) getting and building is as simple as: Code: # those steps need to be done only oncesudo apt-get install libboost-thread-dev libboost-program-options-dev libboost-filesystem-dev libminiupnpc-dev libdb5.1++-dev libssl-dev libboost-dev build-essential gitgit clone every time you do a fresh buildcd ./smallchange/srcgit pull # update local sourcesmake -f makefile.unix For qt, see: updates 2013/05/14 Many thanks to sido, who operates for now a node on a permanent IP: 2013/05/10 please update now (move to a (hopefully unique) network magic number), details: and some of the following posts. 2013/04/24 the block reward was reached a bit earlier than planned and total hashing power is now around 12 MHashes/s, 46 peers; difficulty 'slowly' adjusts. Right now 22 937 blocks are mined and the current total smallchange around is: 22 628 coins. 2013/04/22 please update before block 15 000 [sourced from]
