How to be part of TestNet?

And options for poolmining will be true or false for better payment and mining?

How about a field "GRC/POR owed: xxx" on the front page of a wallet ? Then we would have a number that constantly grows and shows the user that he is doing right.

We already have the fulfillment %.

Rob,

 

isn't the newbie boost and... payment from beacon supposed to be in testnet only? I'm seeing many irc users.... rejoicing getting the boost and staking blocks... in production.

Quick question: These changes (newbie stakeweight) are being contained purely to testnet and not being pushed to prod yet, right? Because users in IRC are reporting getting newbie stake weight in prod...

 

Edit: Also, gridcoin.us is reporting error 503.

Hi, I've joined testnet now, and I'm fully synchronised. Please feel free to send a small or large amount of GRC or none to mpbsDLsNrMGMYyJpKQJTfA6vLnkwmHABJk, depending on your testing requirements.

 

1000 sent! And ty for joining testnet :)

 

Thanks, but I didn't receive it, for some reason! I've double checked the receiving address and that I'm definitely looking at testnet rather than production. My client is continuing to synchronise, and I'm now on block 69716.

 

 

What is your current version? The latest version is 3.5.4.6. If you're not on that version, chances are you are on a fork.

 

Ah, I was on 3.5.4.4-research; I've upgraded now, and I can see the 1000 GRC - thanks! I guess I'll send a beacon now, then.

RE: Eclipse attack mitigation, can you specify which btc/blk commits specifically (using commit id from google doc) you implemented so we can keep track (incase of future related issues)?

Aside from that, excellent release :D

 

edit:

Unsure if you replied earlier, but if newbies work is tracked from beacon sent time instead of first stake, then is the newbie stake bonus neccessary any more?

See the first post on page 1 of this thread for a guide on how to join. If you're on Windows and have the default client configuration i.e. without specifying an RPC port, it's very easy to join, as you don't need to make any configuration changes.

 

I'm not sure about "options for poolmining", but you shouldn't have to join a pool for testnet. Once the enhancements included in testnet have been tested and implemented in production, you shouldn't have to join a pool for production either. :)
