the ENIGMA whitelist poll has ended:

 

71.87% of the voter shares decided: 

 

ENIGMA@Home should be removed from the whitelist

due to no WUs for over 3 weeks

I've updated the instructions to delete a beacon:

http://www.gridresearchcorp.com/gridcoin/DeleteBeaconInstructions.pdf

 

Please note this is a new address.  

 

If the gridresearchcorp block explorer is in sync with the gridcoin network a delete beacon request should be automatically responded to in approximately 15 minutes or less.  If you did everything correctly you will receive a transaction for 0.00022 and you can advertise a new beacon.

 

If you send your request from the wrong address you will get a transaction in the amount of 0.00011, go back to the instructions and try again.  If you send it to the wrong address you won't get a reply, check the address you send your request to and make sure it is correct before sending me a PM that you are having trouble deleting a beacon.  

 

Thanks,

RTMoney

 

Hey RT - Are you able to assist me on a CPID Invalid issue? I have tried the beacon deletion you mentioned here and have also looked for help in the IRC chan - so far, can't get this working now. I've tried restoring keys and all, but it seems the key associated with my current beacon does not match anything I have on my GRC client or backups. Looks like I need mine clear so I can send a new one. Let me know what info you need and I will PM you.

 

Thanks!

So, a "stranger" comes by and you give him something immediately ?

 

I mean it's your account anyways, so you can do what you want, but I found that surprising

 

Perhaps it's because I don't know what an account owner can do.

I was just assuming that the assigned Foundation funds from a poll will be transferred to that account.

 

So, I'd definitely want to track some details now, and later on...

 

 

I would like to notify the community that we have a professional designer/marketer on our team now and that I am in the process of transferring the control of our AdWords account to him. His name is Jesse Taylor (aka Jescro) and I believe he will introduce himself here soon. You can check his introduction on Reddit.

 

It's been a year since we started using Google AdWords and I did my best to set it up properly, but I am aware it's not been as successful as we had hoped. I am thankful for your support and I hope you will support his work too. Of course, I am going to stay with Gridcoin, focusing on other marketing tasks, helping Jesse if necessary and continuing my Gridcoin GPU mining series on Steemit.

 

Hi guys, sorry for the delayed response, I know it adds a lot to my credibility from coming out of the shadows and offering help. I own a fair amount of GRC and am really interested in helping on the marketing front. Happy to CV my bonafides to anyone who wants to vet me out :)

Hey @ All,

 

just an idea.

Can we offer focus power of Gridcoin to BOINC projects? Same thing like that pentathlon, but for all those Boincprojects who need fast results.  Alongside whitelist, just an offer to all Projects. When it is finished crunched GRC will rain to each participant. (Teammembership could make it easy) Projects have to buy the payment on markets ...

I was actually thinking something like this recently. GRC needs an escrow service where projects can deposit funds and participants can be sure that the funds will get rained if conditions are met -- sort of like a reverse kickstarter. If you did it right, it could be a market where GRC BOINCers could go find projects offering whatever rates they're looking for, on top of the normal in-chain awards...

 

If I had more time, I'd try to build this myself, but not likely to have that much time until late this year at the earliest.

I made a Python script that can rain https://github.com/Scalextrix/GRCNN

Making it trigger on some condition like wallet balance would be fairly easy, just add the RPC 'gridcoinresearchd getbabalance' and an if statement >= x, then trigger rain. As its crypto we can all see the project wallet balance if we know the addresses.

Hy all,

 

Is everything ok?!

I did not get a reward for two days and i see that everybody in NN have Zero magnitude

 

db

No issues here.

 

PoR difficulty is fine and also Net weight.


Feel free to join Gridcoin Community Discord we have an irc-bridge, price-bot, and some more also a BOINC community Discord up for test with a channel for each project.

Contact me if you have any suggestions or problems to this.

So this should be something at my end...

I had started to work on this and make it part of the pool site, but I ran into a limitation regarding running multiple daemons on linux. It looks like I can't specify different -datadir (with listen=0) for different daemon instances. All daemon instances pull from the same datadir regardless of what is specified. Not sure if anybody else has seen this happen. However, windows seems to work as expected (but -server option doesn't work anymore). I can run the escrow wallet of course on the linux test box for example, but then need to setup apis for it, so it is more clunky that I wanted, but doable.

Did you try adding server=1 to the gridcoinresearch.conf file?
