  • 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

    @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.

    Read this quote from the bitcointalk, i could not stop laughing :D https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=970294.msg10593637#msg10593637

  • Re: How is it that Poloniex can be a registered money service business and know not require any information from users?

    @cryptomatic

    @pooktwo

    @cryptomatic From the terms of their site:

    BSA / FinCEN

    Poloniex is registered with FinCEN as an MSB (Money Services Business), registration number 31000055869515. Poloniex may be required to file details of account activity to this organization from time to time.

    I've never had them ask for information even when withdrawing from my account. The only thing they required was an email address. They are also based in Whitefish, MT, USA so it just seems a little strange to me.

    It might have something to do with the fact that they are not dealing with any USD directly, but rather tokens that represent USD (XUSD).

    But I looked it up on FinCen and they are there, here is the search area http://www.fincen.gov/financial_institutions/msb/msbstateselector.html and just put in their MSB number 31000055869515 and you will see them

    Yup, they're listed as having activities of 'money transmitter' and 'other'. I wonder if things are going to change in terms of information they require from users when the bitlicense is finalized since NY is included as one of the states they do business in.

    Its still a grey area everyone is trying to figure out both on the crypto side and the government side

  • Re: LTB Podcast/Audience Stats?

    @adam

    @pooktwo @adam i am very excited for the information you just posted here. Keep up the good work, but try and enjoy your vacation ok? :D

    I'm very much enjoying myself, not being very productive at all.

    Very good :) Its well deserved to you my friend. Also speaking of podcasts, i sent an email to Steven and he got back to me already, but http://dogecoindark.net/radio/ is looking to be a LTB podcast. They are a 24 hour radio show, but at night they have live interviews that last really long. this is the show me and james went on a while back https://www.mixcloud.com/dogedradio/foldingcoin-interviewed-on-the-doged/ and they have many other guest who have come on https://www.mixcloud.com/dogedradio/

    We are also setting up another podcast with them for March 27th that will include the following people (its a counterparty panel):

    • Filip Martinka - Counterparty Rep
    • Chris DeRose - CP Foundation Rep
    • Jeremy Lam - Vennd
    • Robert Ross - FoldingCoin
    • Evo Ked - Storj Rep

    Their show is unique as they are really long discussions that are virtually open and normally an entire panel rather then 1 or 2 people.

    Also in the near future me and another guy named Jona Derks will be looking to do a podcast centered around Counterparty and wanted to see what we need to do to make these two happen.

  • Re: Would this work to minimize counterwallet fees?

    @adam

    @pooktwo

    @cryptonaut Unfortunately there isn't any way to send multiple amounts of multiple counterparty tokens to another address in one transaction, just because it's simply too much data to hold in a BTC transaction.

    If your able to use the command line interface instead, you could setup a local copy of bitcoind (which you already have if you are running bitcoin-qt), import your private keys into there. Then you can set up a local counterparty node on top of bitcoind and use the command line options to customize the fees.

    Example command:

    python3 counterpartyd.py --multisig-dust-size 0.00001 --regular-dust-size 0.00001 --fee 0.00001 send --source [source_address] --destination [destination_address] --asset [token name] --quantity [amount]

    you can make the fees pretty much as low as you want, as long as you don't mind waiting extra long for them to confirm.

    Is this something that could be implemented with the asset distributor as an option to make the fees lower? Like lets say there could be an option that allows you in the distributor to set your own fee you wish to pay?

    Fees are set platform-wide at the moment since they are fee instructions to the distributor, and the cost in the distributor is already about as low as we found it to be still reliable. In the future we will have multiple pricing models, per-tx fee for normal users and no or very low per tx fee for users with appropriate rolecoins

    Makes sense. Thanks :)

  • Re: how to get bitcoin ? and how it works ?

    @asep77 anybody can explain to me, what is exactly bitcoin? how to use bitcoin ? and how it works ? then what is the opportunity to have a lot of bitcoin in this real world .thank you for the reply.

    The best place to start is here https://bitcoin.org/en/

    If you aren't familiar with Bitcoin please take the time to read that site thoroughly if you have never heard anything about bitcoin. It does a good job for those not familiar to grasp a basic understanding of how the technology works. Once you are done, please come back and ask any question you would like :D

  • Re: [VOTE] We've made it , we're on BTER coin voting.

    @franckuestein

    @bernhard haha you are funny. its not the question were ltbc can be listed. its the question were ltbc will be accepted.

    I know… but to let exchanges accept LTBc we have to use, move and promote it ;)

    FLDC, SCJX, and XCP just got on Bittrex, maybe that should be the next exchange LTBC tries to get on as they have not had the recent bad publicity that bter has. I will send them an email
