The GROW coin that is on the exchange is no longer valid, so don't buy any GROW from the exchange. The coin is now GROW2, since I lost access to the original GROW coin account.
The coin was pretty transparent at the beginning, but then everything went to crap as most everything we had purchased with the expectation of receiving dividends from ended up dying out. So now there's really no transparency, no true hash power behind the coin at the moment, and I send out payments when I feel it's been too long between payments and want to make sure people don't get discouraged.
The only real transparency is that I try to tell you guys what's going on, and what to expect. I have an S5 ready to go to the data center (it has been for 2 months now) and am just waiting on my buddy to go with me to set it up. Once that's installed, all earnings from it will go toward you guys as payments. In the meantime, I'm mostly paying out from btc that is in the wallet and not doing anything. I also plan to send some btc from my S7 out occasionally in order to help keep payments going. It'll still be a while before we break even on the coin, but I'll do my best to make sure everybody does.
Each time I send out a payment of .01 btc, you can expect 0.00005154 btc per GROW2 coin you own. So, if you purchase any coins from anybody, be prepared to hold onto them for at least a couple years before you can break even.
