[OFFICIAL] We're moving the giveaway out of beta

Postby jaesharp » Fri Nov 22, 2013 2:25 am

G'day Fellow Ripplers,

We've had a tremendous response to the beta version of the World Community Grid giveaway. With your help, as of the last statistics update, we've collectively donated 114 years and 284 days of compute time and our contribution over the last few days is second only to IBM!

We are now preparing to move the giveaway out of beta. To do this, we're discontinuing the ability to generate XRP claim codes at the giveaway site as of 2 PM PST (10 PM UTC) Friday, 22 November, 2013. However, you'll continue to be able to redeem any existing unredeemed claim codes that have been generated. Please prepare accordingly and stay tuned for another Ripple Labs announcement!

--

Update (Fri, 22 Nov, 2013 - 15:14 PST) - Claim code generation has been discontinued as previously announced. Standby for an announcement in the next few days about how we'll be continuing the WCG Giveaway. As stated in the responses below, your existing claim codes remain valid.

Interesting news.

Any knowledge if or when "transaction pending" codes will release the XRP. I have some still pending 4+ days on.

Must say this is an interesting way to do a Giveaway. I enjoyed seeing how many WCG points my 5-year-old quad-core Mac Pro could generate in a day! But if there is going to be widespread adoption, there should be some kind of bonus to sign up new users. With the new user getting the "reserve amount" as bonus for signing up and doing "X" amount of transactions; and the referrer as well getting a bonus once that criteria is met.

Is the RippleLabs team on WCG going to shut down or accept new members? was thinking about getting some more folks to join.

The team membership requirements will remain the same once we're out of beta. The team will continue functioning. Only claim code generation is impacted.

Will we be able to claim points accumulated during the beta once the official giveaway goes live? If not :
1) does that mean that you lose your points at the cut-off time even if you were like 30k+?
2) are you going to track the points balance of members at cut-off?
3) what happens to the points mined between the cut-off time and the go-live of the official give-away?
4) do you plan to change the exchange rate? In which direction?

for the mean time, before the next announcement, can we continue accumulating points? or do we have to stop then wait until after the next announcement?
