I was asked by the GroestlCoin community to look at some of their most recent achievements and write a new article. A lot of things have happened over the past few weeks, so I guess we’ll have our work cut out for us!
As this is a new trend in the world of cryptocurrency and altcoins, GroestlCoin has gone through the Proof of Developer process. Quite surprisingly, GRS came out with a 3 out of 5 rating, which is the lowest I have seen in a while.
The developer of GroestlCoin did not go through the face verification process apparently, which automatically reduces the achievable rating by 20%. Don’t be fooled by the rating itself though, as the work being done and the long standing history of GROESTL bring a lot more legitimacy to this coin than a POD rating ever could.
I am pleased to announce a world premiere in the world of cryptocurrency and altcoins, as there is now a Groestl-based Multipool! After two weeks of beta testing, this mining pool has been released to the public, and can be found here.
In order to mine on the Groestl-based Multipool, a special version of sgminer is required. This fork of sgminer is OpenCL optimized for coins using the Groestl or MyriadGroestl algorithm. You can download grs-sgminer here.
How does playing a 3D Worm game where you can win free GRS sound? Unfortunately for us, this competition ended roughly a week ago, but I still very much like the initiative. You can find out more about this competition here.
When it comes to promoting your cryptocurrency, instructional or promotional videos can go a long way, as they have a broad audience. No less than 3 videos have been published over the past few weeks, which you can find here, here and here.
What I like most about the progress so far is the fact GroestlCoin has been added to two new payment processors lately. Both Casheer and CoinToPay have accepted GRS as a payment method on their platforms. Very exciting news!
On top of that, GroestlCoin can now be traded on the ColdCryptos exchange. Even though I have never heard of this exchange before, it’s always good to see coins with a long history being added to these new platforms.
Last but not least, two GRS tipbots are now live! One can be found on Facebook , while the other one can be found on Twitter. The Facebook one is the MuitiCoin Tipping App, which also includes GroestlCoin as a supported coin.
