Project Description

Gram is our official internal use testing Blockchain. The original dev abandoned the coin and the entire community. This caused the community to die as well, leading to not even a single node for an extended period of time. Nobody even had a functional wallet by the time CryptoCoderz got involved. We were forced to re-block the entire algorithm and start it from scratch. Currently we are using this Blockchain to test SHA-256 functionalities and other future projects. Due to the coin being our private test chain there is currently no Bitcointalk thread, nor a wallet.

No Wallet?

The reason as to why we haven’t made a new wallet for gram available to the public is because we do not want this project to gain monetary value. CryptoCoderz took something dead and replaced it with a test to both preserve and utilize this Blockchain. Due to the state in which we found Gram we believe it will do better as a test rather than a functional technology.

Why SHA-256

the reason we chose Gram in particular to be our inside testing Blockchain is because of the algorithm SHA-256. We do not believe that SHA-256 is secure enough to be a functional Blockchain for what CryptoCoderz has planned however it is a great test to help us develop Implementation of several types of algorithms into one universal system. CryptoCoderz views this as a long term goal and will be working on perfecting this function over the course of an undisclosed amount of time.

Algorithm

The SHA (Secure Hash Algorithm) is one of a number of cryptographic hash functions. A cryptographic hash is like a signature for a text or a data file. SHA-256 algorithm generates an almost-unique, fixed size 256-bit (32-byte) hash. Hash is a one way function – it cannot be decrypted back.
