  • 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: Cryptographic trading card game.

    @cryptonaut damn.... I literally had the exact same idea man. Collectible trading coins! Buy booster packs of 10 random coins (potentially rare and super rare ones) for 0.01 BTC or something :p

    Haven't really looked into the Spells of Genesis thing much until now, seems pretty cool. Seems almost more like a browser RPG though.

    What I have been thinking is something pretty much exactly like Yu-Gi-Oh or Magic the Gathering. Collect cards either by buying or trading from other players, winning them somehow or by buying booster/starter packs. Compete against other players in the same style of game - each players "deck" gets randomized, they pick up 5 coins to start, each one represents a monster or specific trap or power. Place coins on the battlefield and take turns attacking eachother etc. If you have played either game you know what I mean. Would be cool also to have a "game pot" that is up for grabs for whoever wins each match or each tournament (entry fee for each player maybe), add some profit motive :)

    I am totally down for this

    They plan on allowing anyone to use the tokens from this game to be expandable to other games such as their trading card game Manga. But if you create one to nick I would def buy into it. I am a huge MTG player :D (well used to be until it got to expensive. Now I just keep one really really good legacy deck)

  • Re: Buying a house with BTC

    @tw79

    @odolvlobo I don't want to seem negative, but have you done the math? You can generate 5 BTC per month with 17 TH/s, but that doesn't account for power costs.

    I'm trying to do this with cloud mining. South Texas is a very tropical climate, and running miners all day will kill my electric bill. I had an S1 for a few months and my wife beat me over the head with it when she saw the electric bill.

    Until the house is built and we move in, I hope to reinvest enough to bring in the 5 BTC.

    Just to clarify, you will be simply converting the BTC to USD then paying your house off correct? Under that circumstance, its not a real world use for BTC as the mortgage company is not accepting you BTC, but you are selling them for USD and paying USD.

    @pooktwo

    @bernhard I have tested it now over 2 month. A funny game with bitcoin cloud miner. I got already payed with 0.01 btc and waiting for an other 0.005 maybe tomorrow. Just use my referral link and get 20 GH for free. You need only your email and your btc-address, don't forget your password, it must be minimum 8 number or letters. Thats all and you are done to start with 20 GH. YOU DO NOT NEED TO PAY ANYTHING! Then it gets funny. I will tell in later posts what all you can do... haha

    I remember when i paid $1300 dollars for a 25 Ghash BFL.... now thats being given away for free :(

    In hindsight, i should have just bought BTC back then

    yes this were other days but the difficulty was much lower for the mining. now you start with 20 GH free and activate the douple mining. so you will have 40 GH for 1h15min. try it out....

    How much does 40 gh even get these days? It has to be really small. My BFL is on a shelf labeled "Antique upon Arrival", i only ran it for about 1 week before turning it off lol
