GridCoin.co 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 - http://www.bitcoinutopia.net/bitcoinutopia/ Pointless without being able to set apps leiden classical - http://boinc.gorlaeus.net/ Doesn't support weak auth keys rosetta@home - http://boinc.bakerlab.org/ Doesn't support weak auth keys world community grid - http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/boinc/ May add in the future yafu - http://yafu.myfirewall.org/yafu/ Not accepting new accounts yoyo@home - http://www.rechenkraft.net/yoyo/ 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. Updates: (Updated: Jan 10th, 2016) Jan 10th, 2016 - Payments will be sent out more frequently. - New profile/project settings have been added. - Work begins on leaderboards and overall pool stats.

The objective of this topic should be to follow and watch over each Gridcoin whitelisted project so that: Enough work and work units are offered to Gridcoin researchers Enough work and work units are available at all times for the existing number of Gridcoin researchers Work is distributed fairly among researchers The majority of a projects' RAC is not consistently and suspiciously assigned to a minority of researchers The project is stable and its operators are honest The number of whitelisted projects is enough and efficient to maintain Gridcoin's fairness and research stability Any other suggested fairness measures.... Feel free to post anything related to project fairness as it affects Gridcoin research/mining. If you are experiencing problems with any project please do not hesitate to post it here. Experience from all Gridcoin users/researchers is very much welcome and should help us classify the best BOINC projects for inclusion/exclusion into the Gridcoin system. A list of projects known to BOINC and whose description is considered accurate by BOINC can be found here: http://boinc.berkeley.edu/projects.php A list of current Gridcoin whitelisted projects including a few statistics can be found at: http://gridresearchcorp.com/gridcoin/?result&t=Whitelisted_Project_Leaderboard
