  • 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: Earn Spells of Genesis on FoldingCoin

    @eshriek

    @pooktwo So BITCRYSTALS and FDCARD can no longer be earned via merged folding, however Spells is now distributing MAGICFLDC on merged folding. They are not yet releasing what exactly it will be used for, its a surprise, but i suspect it will be for something mana related :D but thats just a guess, i actually dont even know :)

    I'm ashamed to say that I am up and running on folding coin (finally). Should have been done 2 years ago. It looked so much more complex than it ended up being.

    ty

    Glad to have you apart of the team!!!!!!!!

    @eshriek

    @pooktwo The Spells of Genesis team is proud to announce their partnership with FoldingCoin, providing 100,000 free BitCrystals and 300 unique trading cards towards their Merged Folding Platform, assisting in the computational development of vital medicines.

    I missed this opportunity. Will it run again? I'm guessing all the cards are gone. Any suggestions on how to acquire one in the future?

  • Re: Token experiment with mobile counterwallet.

    @cointea1121 they wouldn't have to pay in the token, just sign a generic message at the check it booth from an address that has the token in it. Then the booth worker can just see if the message he/she signed came from an address that has the token in it for access.

    Obviously this isnt a problem right now, as you can just have then show you their phones indiesquare ap and you will see if they have the token or not, but in the future in might be handy :D

  • Re: cyber • Fund Release the Rating

    will you be adding APIs ? That could be a great addition to your site

  • Re: Token experiment with mobile counterwallet.

    Yeah I actually stopped the recording before we began discussing the meetup @cointea1121 otherwise i would have put it in :( Next time I will stop recording the moment the guest hangs up and not a minute before lol.

    It was a great conversation and the meetup idea is excellent. Though I do wonder this, how can you verify their wallet from the meetup? Im sure i could make a indiesquare ap appear to have the required token through manipulation.

    This was one of the big things FLDC ran into when we had an early idea way back of being a meetup token, but that was the big issue. But there is an easy solution, signing messages from the mobile wallet.

    That would make it incredibly easy to verify someone actually does have they wallet, a QR code message signing at the check in booth. Is this something you guys might incorporate with the wallet?
