After two years of development, one of the first ICO start-ups, which raised 820,000 ETH in 2016, is launched in the main network Ethereum. This is reported by Trustnodes.

The road to mainnet was a complex and challenging one, more than the Golem team would have expected. After 14 major (and some more minor ones…) software iterations of the Golem Alpha version that supported several OS including MacOS, Windows, and Linux; combined with more than two years of research and development, the Golem team decided to launch the Beta version, called Brass onto the Ethereum Mainnet.

This is a beta version, so it can have some bugs. 

Golem is a dApp, and as any other, it required testing through a contained “laboratory”. But in order to progress, we need to get out of this comfort zone, and make sure the elements that we have worked hard, and continue to build, are responsive and working well on a decentralized setting.

Thus, the developers launched an experiment, the participants of which can lease the computing power of their computers to anyone who wants to.

The idea behind Golem developers is to create a super-computer that will combine the computing power of users' computers that want to sell them, and subsequently will redistribute these capacities in favor of those who need them.

The first area of application Golem will be the rendering of computer graphic interfaces (CGI). Typically, this task requires significant computing resources, which Golem is ready to provide at significantly lower prices than competitors.

It is also worth noting that this event had a great impact onto Golem price - it rose for 23% in 24h.

Users Suspected RusGas of Scam

Reddit users have already accused RusGas of exit scam, since its behavior is much like  recent scam project Oyster Protocol

The RusGas cryptocurrency project (RGS) demonstrates disturbing signs and releases new tokens in excess of the pre-set emission limit, Cryptovest reports. With an aggregate capitalization of $ 117, RGS trading volume for the last few days is $ 35,000. Events unfold against the backdrop of promises made by the project organizers about the upcoming restart.

Most of the RGS trade is focused on the Crex24 exchange, which has a daily  of $ 700,000. RusGas had a daily volume of several million dollars in its best days, which already then caused questions about the authenticity of this value.

According to CoinMarketCap, RGS emissions are limited to 10 billion tokens, but Etherscan indicates that currently 298 addresses contain 860 billion RGS. The rapid growth of emissions was recorded in recent days and hours. The largest wallet contains 99% of all tokens, which is probably the crex24 wallet. The developers themselves explain these movements to the next restart.

Reddit users have already accused RusGas of exit scam, since its behavior is much like  recent scam project Oyster Protocol(PRL), when the additional issue feature was used in a smart contract.

The likelihood of such an outcome is a characteristic feature of projects based on the Ethereum protocol, which allows additional emission of tokens through a smart contract at the discretion of its owner, not to mention other vulnerabilities that cost investors a lot of money.

RusGas is based on the idea of ​​using tokens and blockchains to optimize the Russian gas industry. Despite the dubiousness of the project’s mission, the data on the network indicates that in April of this year he managed to raise $ 2.2 million for ICO.
