Mining grins will become possible as soon as the “mainnet” is released, which requires a fully developed, well-tested and hopefully audited codebase. How long will that take? Software timelines are notoriously difficult to predict, and this is particularly true of open source projects that rely on volunteers’ time. So the best answer we can give you is “as long as needed”. A less good answer would be “at least 9 months from now” which would be a guesstimate that’s likely to be wrong.
As far as buying, it’s completely dependent on exchanges and so outside of our control. In any case, don’t try to buy anything until after we’ve announced the mainnet release.
Heh, not sure how to take “Linus style engineers” but the fact is that we don’t know and this is a complex enough project that we’re likely to be wrong. I’ve been saying toward the end of the year here and there but would definitely not sign with my blood on it.
I highly doubt it would shock you what I mean by it; I haven’t been shy criticizing your economics policy your implementing but I’ve very much here waiting for you guys to finish in a sea of shitcoins; if I didn’t think this tech would be good I wouldn’t be here.
personally through checking the listing sites on https://howtobuygrin.com I chose chainrift but your volume support is needed! don’t trade on the big volume fakers like hotbit and the likes but come to the real ones all you fine grinners out there thanks
