  • 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

  • Re: Best VPN?

    I agree that Private internet access is the most popular and very secure. It also accepts bitcoin which is a plus when trying to stay anon

  • Re: Libyan refugees

    Open borders is kind of like thw elfare system, on paper it looks and sounds great.... until people corrupt and abuse the spirit of what its trying to accomplish.

    The world is not yet ready for open borders and the refugees are just looking to go somewhere in which they can try and build a life. Africa has different problems, but still problems. Europe nations are more economically established just like the USA is

  • Re: Why not monetize LTBcoin?

    @cryptonaut All in due time, we are busy behind the scenes working on the tools to enable stuff like this. All of our stuff is open source and we are quasi-decentralized, so feel free to start your own initiatives and make contributions if you can.

    The pieces the LTB team has been developing will be used in a Marketplace we are building that is close to what you are saying. We right now have the backend server up and running, but not much else. We need to start plugging in various opensource applications such as TOKENLY and get an instance of counterparty ruby on there as well. When i am working on the server you can see the progress with this link:

    Remember, it isnt much now. You cant even login yet, but we are working on what you are describing :D Also that link will only work when i am on. I will leave it open for awhile so you can see it, but you can also check the link periodically to see our progress

  • Re: hackers threatening Bitcoin

    You will continue to see a growing amount of hackers in this space, more so then any other space. Before BTC, the most they could do is steal information. Now information is valuable, but by stealing information as a hacker, you must follow through with that information you have obtained by trying to do things like identity theft to actually steal money. Each layer gets harder and harder. As for with BTC, you can steal money directly with no one able to compensate the end user back. From this day forward, you will never see a shortage of hackers again.

    With BTC (like everything else including the internet) you need to take the good with the bad

  • Re: apparent contradiction re: (de)centralization

    @thatlarkin Am I understanding correctly? I'm open to all opposing viewpoints. I just listened to a half-hour long plea to embrace decentralization and P2P market forces, then later, a half-hour of how the inherent value of LTBcoin is determined by one person, pretty much the most centralized a system can be. Again, I'm not trolling. I really want to understand better what I perceive to be contradictory messages.

    So assets like LTBC and FLDC are centralized to a point. Someone still has to distribute the funds and that is the creator of the token. So it depends on the trust you have in that person or company. However, since lets say LTB has a heavy interest in LTBC, it would not be in the best interest for them to do something to screw with the coin by lets say introducing more coins in the market that goes outside of their set schedule. They collect a lot of LTBC for things like advertising, so doing something to hurt the coin will hurt their own investment and time spent in the coin.

    That being said, it is in deep centralized (semi centralized because the people who own the token LTBC still cannot have it taken away from them). I forsee a future in which some assets need to be centralized, such as a stock built inside of the blockchain using the counterparty protocol
