  • 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

    @bernhard

    change it quick

    That is what most people do, but this is not possible if you are trading. Let's say you want to place a limit order, or maybe you are day-trading. In that case you have to have your coins there.

    so dont trade on this kind of exchanges !!

    there are many others

    Poloniex is far from small. Day trading is a dangerous game, everyone knows the risks and you gotta just be ok with that. Thats one reason I stay away from day trading. Early on I lost money in a site i cant even remember the name to, but they were the first site you could mine directly to and it was also an exchange.

    I lost a good number of BTC there and was turned off by the whole day trading thing after that.

    Finally, I have a couple of Raspberry Pi devices that I use as host computers for my bitcoin mining rigs. I love the RPi!!!

    RPi ftw!!

    Thinking about running a full-bitcoin node on it!

    If you do that, please make a video and post it on youtube. I would love to see it

  • Re: Bitstamp.net hacked

    I dont keep really any money in any exchanges that i am not comfortable losing at any moment. But I am also not a day trader, so if I want to trade for something its like a 3 hour process for me. Put the money in, traade it for whatever, take the money out.

    I leave about 1.5 BTC in coinbase for the various btc apps i use to pay for stuff but thats about it.

    But to be honest, Bitstamp handled it very well and I wouldn't give up on them yet. These things happen in this space. The big companies become heavy targets and thats part of the risk of being a day trader (which is what keeping your money in these exchanges is really for, high frequency trading).

  • Re: Windows or MacOS X or Linux?

    @jrb0bd0bbs I administer a datacenter that supports mostly Windows workstations and servers, but we have some Linux appliances that we have to run to keep everything working properly and safely (NetScaler, etc.). On my personal desktop at home, I dual-boot between Windows 8.1 and Ubuntu, and also run virtual machines of many different kinds (LinuxMint, RoboLinux, UbuntuMATE, Windows 10, Windows Server 2012, etc.). I use a laptop that also dual-boots between Windows 8.1 and Ubuntu 14.10.

    Finally, I have a couple of Raspberry Pi devices that I use as host computers for my bitcoin mining rigs. I love the RPi!!!

    That tends to be many organizations setups:

    • Windows for client stations
    • Linux for security and serrvers
    • RPis for awesomeness

    @piebeyb

    @reputation

    @piebeyb I also would think the same as it was like you, but that obviously does not need a lot of talking, do not need to have the complete article, but look at the quality and development, I guess you do not want to hear the promise but the evidence, I understand it and do not force you to follow these , because this information is only to be read instead of a proof of great development or vice versa, I guess when you know bitcoin, would you say bandit or fraud, but when you look at the evidence and the public bitcoin popularity continues to grow, all of it because of the evidence, not of what you read

    You are just reinforcing my point. What you're saying is not to look at the details, but just to blindly trust in promises.

    Here's my logical equivalent to your proposal:

    I have a spaceship that you can ride on if you send me your money. Don't worry about how the spaceship works, just think of all the cool things you can do on the spaceship. If you realize how amazing spaceship technology is, then that is evidence enough that my spaceship is just as amazing as I say it is.

    The first goal is only to share information, because all the parts inside it there is a refinement of the system which I am made, yeah maybe I would say that all developers need a place where all can know what they are doing, at least people know ever launched and wherever post was made, and do not forget I thank you for your comment well, luck to you

    I apologize if you actually have good intentions, but as an FYI in this space without valid information, websites, road maps, examples, white papers, ext..... You will be labeled as a scam, and this has all the appearance of a scam even if it is not.

    So if you are for real about this, i would recommend pulling it for now and get some more valid information for the public to view otherwise you are just going to keep getting "scam" comments and it can destroy your reputation before it begins.

    Best of luck to you :D
