  • Bio:

    From 2007 until present Robert has been building out MDFs and IDFs for multi million dollar companies across the midwest and has managed hundreds of new construction IT build outs for various project sizes from small retail stores to large shipping distribution centers. Also during this time frame Robert has serviced hundreds of general IT service calls dealing with everything from broadband, to network upgrades, and everything in between dealing with copper cabling, security, fiber optics, and any commercial grade IT equipment maintenance. In between this time, Robert also spent 1 year acting as a Northern Michigan Red Cross IT administrator and has dedicated a small amount of time doing Linux server configurations for a small Indianapolis company.

    In 2013 Robert discovered Bitcoin and has spent every free moment dedicating time to advancing his knowledge in the field of cryptocurrency. From March 2013 until April 2014 Robert was a Bitcoin and Altcoin miner building up a mining farm consisting of 34 GPUs and 8 CPUs. Since mining on general computer hardware was no longer profitable for cryptocurrency mining, Robert co-founded FoldingCoin Inc in July 2014 with hopes of helping to redirect a large amount of the mining power that goes into altcoins to be better used towards Stanford's Folding@home project.

    Since FoldingCoin was well received in the cryptocurrency community, Robert decided in January of 2015 to go full time in the Counterparty community. Since the beginning of 2015 Robert has taken on the following roles:

    • Director of FoldingCoin Inc
    • Community director for the Counterparty Foundation
    • Host of the LTB podcast: “XCP Weekly Update”
    • Webmaster of XCPassets.org
    • Event coordinator to the Indy Bitcoin Meetup

  • Re: Spell of Genesis Crowd Sale - Invest or pass?

    @febo Does anyone know why math dont work here?

    Did they sell some BitCrystals cheaper or what? As i read on their web, they should increase price on 5th day. not after few hours. Does anyone have link where is detailed explained how will this crowd sale go?

    As it currently shows is or 2/3 BTC is missing or BitCrystals were sold at 1/3 of current price.

    it sll should be found here http://bitcrystals.com/

    And i think that the progress bar on this page is not accurate, it seems broken to be honest.

  • Re: Spell of Genesis Crowd Sale - Invest or pass?

    @adam I'm planning on playing the game so my intent is to get some of their bitcrystals.

    I cannot wait for the very first LTB tournament :D I will for sure be there!

  • Re: Spell of Genesis Crowd Sale - Invest or pass?

    @pairmike Is the Spell of Genesis crowd sale a good investment or not. I'm interested in hearing your thoughts.

    As a MTG player for 15 years, the potential of this game to disrupt the trading card game market is huge. I bought the second package, the 1.07 one, but if i had the money i would have invested 5.

    Obviously this is my opinion so please make your own, but i forsee BITCRYSTALS being the first mainstream crypto asset of them all simply because they are innovating a current industry, not re inventing it. Here are the things i think are most valuable about the SOG platform:

    • Cards will not lose value because of condition variables. Physical cards can be completely worthless with the smallest scratch for collectors, there is no chance for that with SOG

    • The ability to compete online in tournaments rather then having to go is huge. I have won many local indianapolis MTG tournaments, but i have never had the money to make it to cali to compete in bigger tournaments, with online i can now do so.

    • The ability for people to make their own games using the same assets is really cool. The magic club i was in during high school (yeah thats right, i was in a magic club :D) we used to always make our own versions of MTG. But since it was all kind of just created with verbal rules, if someone did something not legal, we would argue about it. If people can code new rules into their own platforms this is great

    • trading on the DEX, swapbot, ext... is crucial. Before i would have to wait until i went to tournaments to do some serious trading as my friends who played magic with me wouldnt have as many cards as lets say 100 people that show up to a tournament. and when trading at a tournament before the tournament begins, it can be very time consuming and by the time trading is done the tournament begins and i could not add the new cards easily with complete thought so sometimes cards would mistakenly be added to decks i would not like them to be in. trading globally anytime is fantastic

    • nerds love this stuff. i dont think everyone will be playing SOG as it is a special market for only those of interest, but those who love TCG's are always willing to pay top dollars for. I have a 61 card MTG deck worth $700 and my non MTG friends think i am stupid for spending that much on cardboard, yet i love it :)

    • unlike every other crypto asset, since these are pretty much cards i feel they will retain their value a lot more then BTC, XCP, ext.. as if the card is good, it will always be worth more then the cards that are not. Just like kelly bluebook for cars, there are basically bluebooks for MTG cards that have been established and say this card is worth this amount, you will undoubtable see this happen with SOG cards. Volume doesnt really matter for cards, the black lotus in MTG changes hands maybe 10 times a year and is still worth 5k

    Thats why i think it is reat to invest :D Even if you dont play card games, you may want some as they will still be valuable for someone else

  • Re: Need a search feature on the forums

    @cryptonaut

    @eshriek Just wondering where the search is at. I've used the site search for the last year and just realized now that it doesn't include Token Controlled Access forums. Is there a way to embed my token address if I use google site:... feature?

    I'm thinking this will be one of the things that change with the pending site overhaul. Looking forward to it!

    Planning on building out a better search system along with the new redesign, which should be coming out sometime late august / early september

    Im excited to use it :D the only problem i really have with the current site is the forums not being a smaller list
