#1 Collatz Project Down Until...

Unread post by Newshound » Mon Apr 02, 2018 2:12 am

It seems a few people have come up with a way to game the system. Until I figure out what damage they have done and how many thousands of work units need to be re-issued, the daemons are shut down. You should still be able to return any completed work units and they will eventually be validated and credit given if valid, but no new work units will be sent until new applications and server daemons have been developed.

All I can do is laugh. I wonder if Gridcoin will ever admit how much they were scammed out of? I do feel bad for Slicker though. It's not his fault but now he must make changes to his project to keep scammers from stealing from Gridcoin. I sure hope Gridcoin is reimbursing him for his time.
