  • POS + DPOR Stake Weight Balance?

    by Cm-Steem:https://steemit.com/gridcoin/@...





    POS vs DPOR stake weight balance?

    This was brought back up in the following Gridcoin GitHub issue: https://github.com/gridcoin/Gridcoin-Research/issues/106

    When considering how to improve total participating stake weight, we should evaluate the POS:DPOR stake weight balance (huppdiwupp's posts are worth reading) : https://cryptocointalk.com/topic/49141-dpor-stake-weight-calculations/

    Link to hupdiwup's initial (not final proposal) post & following quote:

    "If you have a low magnitude the probability to stake would be greater if you just ran an investor wallet. If you have a high magnitude the probability to stake is greater than running an investor node. This was a little bit of a surprise to me. I thought that you would always have at least the probability to stake of an investor and the work you do for boinc crunching increases this probability. So that despite the imapct of "owed" the ratio between investor and cruncher would be constant, given a magnitude."

    Proposal 1 conclusion:

    "Now, if you are owed nothing the probability to stake is the same as if you were an investor. If owed is positive your probability goes up, if owed is negative it goes down. The impact of the variable owed is dependent on your magnitude, so it boosts small magnitude nodes more than large magnitude nodes. The problem with this is that you could create a lot of gridcoin+boinc nodes with a small magnitude, close the wallets and then build up probability.
    The way it currently works you can also build up probability by crunching with the wallet closed. But since small magnitudes and small balances are being penalized it is more expensive. This is at the cost of newbies not staking blocks or having a newbie boost.
    This is basically the same problem as with PoSv1 vs PoSv2, whether to use coinage or coin. So maybe we should eliminate the owed-variable from the equation."

    Proposal 2 conclusion::

    "The advantage of this would be that you cannot build up probability to stake. Regardless how long your wallet has been offline or what you are "owed" the probability stays the same.
    But this would come down to the same discussion we had with the vote weight. What should the ratio between magnitude and balance be. If ideally all coins would stake all the time it would be no problem if the weight was equal (p=1). But if only 20% of the total coin supply stake at one time it could be too much.
    I don't know if the total coin supply is easily accessible. If it is not it could be set as a constant but then the importance of Magnitude would slowly decay as more coins are created.
    If there is a way to determin how many coins stake at a single time, we could use that metric instead of total coin supply. This would mean that you would have to have 51% coins staking plus 51% magnitude staking for an attack at any point in time.

  • Gridcoin hangouts: minutes and tasks

    You will find:

    • the minutes for the Gridcoin hangouts from now on here, and also 
    • the tasks community members mentioned in our conference calls (see here).

    The motivation for the tasks is:

    • that the mumble sessions don't just produce "hot air" (but you know that already, since the meetings bring transparency + make it easy to understand topics + give a regular summary of our activities)
    • bringing the ideas from all places (forum, audio calls, ...) together so people
    • * see them easily, and 
    • * can act on them faster

    If you feel like you can do a task:

    • e.g. there exist marketing tasks
    • tasks that will help future Gridcoin newcomers (see here), 
    • tasks with bounties (some of the bounties need to be still precised)), or
    • tasks which were identified to be on the official roadmap

    just add a note how/when you will realize it.

    The Gridcoin hangout minutes are useful because:

    • search engines can lead people to the audio files which will help them understand Gridcoin topics much better

  • Adblockers and Superblocks

    By,sc-steemit

    AdBlockers

    Since yesterday we no longer allow the usage of the faucet while using an AdBlocking software. We do allow usage of other parts of the page with adblocking software, so far, but please do donate some for our effort to the page if you have something to spare. Much appreciated.

    Superblocks and User CPID stats

    Yesterday the network, one again, ha two superblocks in a matter of minutes. The code behind the page gets a little confused about this and the result is that there are no (or partial) data pulled from projects. Yesterday no data was pulled from projects. This means all projects currently show no wu stats, no avg rac stats and users have no Magnitude estimation. The next release have this dealt with, but will still be a few weeks before we have it fully up and running. The page will correct itself on the next superblock.

  • Major webpage update

    Great update today!

    Today we pushed out a great update. We’ve been working on this for the past month and put several hours of love in to it. The backend has received a full overhaul since the first version and should now be much more stable. We’ve included much more data that we collect. The frontend has been recreated with a responsive design to make the page look great on smaller devices. Let me tell you about these changes!

    SSL

    The page are now available over SSL and can be accessed at https://gridcoinstats.eu! After the much talk about securing resources for Gridcoin, we can't ignore our obligation :)

    Responsive Design

    The menu will be redesigned in the next update to look better for computer users. As you may have noticed, the page is now responsive. Because ~20% of our users are browsing the page with a device with a narrow display, we’ve been compelled to make the page look better for these users. There have been some sacrifices to make this change, the menu has been redesigned to comply with the new narrow screens. The data tables will hide some columns if the screen is to narrow, but will show if you turn the screen to fit them.

    Network Traffic

    The table for Network Traffic (staked Blocks) are now much slimmer. The table will load new blocks as they arrive to the network. The size of the data has been slimmed and should require less usage.

    Transaction History

    The transaction history for Addresses and CPIDs now has a uniformed design to the rest of the page. All transactions are collapsed per day and can be expanded by clicking on the row, or you can expand them all by clicking the link on the top of the table.

    Polls

    The Polls are now updated to be calculated correctly with shares. Monetary shares are calculated from the block that the poll was inserted.

    More Graphs

    The page has gained a bunch more graphs to visualize data.

    The projects page

    Details page now visualizes WUs, RAC and number of Users.

    The CPIDs page

    The CPID page now has graphs for historic RAC and Magnitude. We've had to reset the RAC history for all users with this update, but they are collecting up fast.

    Network Stats

    The main page now has two interesting images to visualize the price and client versions.

    Change of links

    There have been a few changes in the way we do our page URLs. Most of them have automatic redirects.

    The Projects page have changed from project ID to project Name in the URL. This has not been corrected, please change your links if you link to a specific project page. The user will be redirected to the projects list page on an invalid link. The link to World Community Grid for example is:

    https://gridcoinstats.eu/projects.php?a=view&id=world%20community%20grid

    The Transactions and Blocks pages have been merged. Any links to the old Transactions page will be redirected to the blocks page. We’ve made a function that will expand the specific transaction on the block page if a TX is passed to it. This will be the same by automatic, for example this will look up what block the input hash belongs to and expand the transactions details for that hash.

    tx.php?id=3043d1085e16844b277e3ff15db74fae6a1586ed4f3c789d43ef78e93591b9ab block.php?tx=3043d1085e16844b277e3ff15db74fae6a1586ed4f3c789d43ef78e93591b9ab

    You can off course pass block id to it as before like

    block.php?id=800000

    Thanks for visiting us!

    These are some of the many updates we've put into this update and we hope you will enjoy your stay at our page and find it worth using and helpful. We look forward to many more updates and an interesting future with the Gridcoin Community! If you're new to Gridcoin, come by us and get some free Gridcoin from our Faucet.

  • Gridcoin Advertising (4): The crypto campaign

    Few weeks ago, it was suggested on cryptocointalk
    that we should focus our AdWords advertising efforts on crypto-related
    websites (like coinmarketcap, eobot, themerkle etc.) to attract more
    crypto-enthusiasts and potential investors. Well, since last Saturday
    (March 04) we are spending our entire AdWords budget (10 USD per day)
    solely on crypto-related websites, so it's time to present some findings
    & statistics:


    We collected +1000 clicks at a cost of 6 cents per click, that's not bad. But the bounce rate is quite high: 83.22%. I guess that's not entirely surprising, we probably need a flashier website at www.gridcoin.us in order to attract more general crypto users. BOINC crunchers (our main user base) are used to non flashy web designs, but crypto folks are certainly much more demanding - there are a lot of coins out there, competition is tough and every bit of design helps. 

    Typical BOINC website ([email protected]).  I guess we are used to it, but it certainly looks bland. Well, people who are into science and volunteer computing can look past bland designs, but we can't count on the same with crypto users.

    Experimenting further, today I decided to focus our efforts on www.blockscan.com  (Counterparty Block Explorer website, they rely on AdWords for advertising, just like we do on gridcoinstats.eu). Some surprising results:

    Today's Top 5 targeted websites, sorted by cost. We spent 5.09
    USD for advertising on blockscan.com and achieved click-through-rate of
    9.28%. Almost every tenth visitor clicked our ad there, that's a very
    high number by all standards. Hope they don't have some kind of ad-click
    bot there :)



    Counterparty Block Explorer website with Gridcoin ad :)   I am going to replace that unsightly font with the font used on our logo, just like on this ad:
