  • 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: LTB Network Tutorials! Here's What We're Doing, What Are We Missing?

    @adam The plug is no problem and honestly the video is great, I just got a chance to watch it.

    Cool :) We also could be able to create some cool intro for LTB like we did for this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aRL1ewGw6AY We would need a .ai file of the LTB logo though (or whatever raw data the logo is in)

  • Re: LTB Network Tutorials! Here's What We're Doing, What Are We Missing?

    @adam Hey Robert, lets just keep things decentralized - You guys produce your content and we'll produce ours - Thanks though!

    Fair enough, I still would love to help make the videos if you are interested (without the plug), its the least we can do for using the hell out of you guys.

    You still interested in that?

  • Re: LTB Network Tutorials! Here's What We're Doing, What Are We Missing?

    @adam I'm game for that, I'd record the voice-over and hand it off to you guys for the rest?

    I just read this since i forgot to subscribe to the post lol

    So i made the video with my voice and shared it with you on drive https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B1dUVgiNzH0naENhbUZpRkNBRzQ&authuser=0 you should be able to view it. I would have waited if i read your comment, but i think it turned out good :)

    I have no problem making it over again with your voice over. I am now subscribed to this thread so i will see when you respond :D

    Also i was simply gonna cover the things that I could actually talk about. I can do all sorts of videos if you are gonna do the sound. I am 100% game for that. Send them my way and we will take care if it :)

    Feel free no say no to this as we can do them anyway, but at the end of each video can we do a "Edited by FoldingCoin" picture?

    Thanks!

  • Re: "Posts That Pay" Forum Anti-Spam System Proposal

    @irnhnve I think it is quite a few steps for a new user to take just to use the forums. There's people who will take the time to do them, but I feel like it would turn an even larger number away.

    What if instead we simply had new user's accounts flagged until they had received x amount of likes on their posts from full users. It could also be set up in tiers so that x number of likes on a post from a full member gets them to the next tier where they would begin receiving 25% of the distribution they earned during that period, but they rest are set aside in a pool. When they hit the next threshold they get 50% and so so on until they hit 100% at which time all of the LTBc that is set aside in the pool are released and they get the full distribution each week going forward.

    This way an account that has reached a certain tier becomes more valuable to the user since it would be difficult to start all over again if they tried to spam from the high tier account.

    @adam Even though is think that the credit system is a great idea, irnhnve is correct that many might not want to go through this process, though i dont think irnhnve's proposed solution is the answer either. I have still been thinking about this in the back of my head for a few days and I will submit an idea when i have one, there has to be a way to make this work because its a really good idea :)

  • Re: How do you listen to LTB podcasts?

    from the website, makes it so I dont have to have one more thing installed on my computer

  • Re: "Posts That Pay" Forum Anti-Spam System Proposal

    I love the idea of a credit system, but here are my suggestions to help combat the spam and alter your idea a hair:

    • I do not like the public and private area. @tintin is right, this can lead to ideas not being accessed by one time users. TCA is great for specific projects but not half of the site. Also how would you choose which thread sections get to be public and private?

    • The credits is awesome! I think that is great, but what if we changed it a little. How about instead of distributing the lets say 10% spam credits among everyone, what if who ever flagged the spam would receive the credits from the spam? That would give an incentive for people to go spam head hunting. So if you dont flag spam, you dont receive the benefits

    • What if good spam hunter had a reputation system where if they have flagged enough spam that when they start flagging the spam it is removed from public view and sent to the LTB administration to review and make sure it is indeed spam. If it ends up being spam, then LTB can delete it permanently and if it didnt end up being spam, then it goes back to public viewing exactly where it was and the flagger receives negative feedback on his/her reputation possibly losing the ability to remove posts from public view.

    • I think the small amount of LTBC to pay for credits is not a bad thing, as LTBC is supposed to be used for this site. So finding another use for LTBC is not bad and I would never even expect to see it back. If I get 100 credits and continue to flag and add content, unless I am posting 100 times a week that should last virtually forever.

    • It is good to note that someone might not want to go through the hassle of acquiring LTBC in order to purchase credits if they do not already have LTBC. What if you made it possible to buy the credits with BTC and LTBC? You said accepting other tokens is possible, but if they dont have LTBC and are coming to the site for the first time, they may not have any CP tokens.

    @alchemix

    @pooktwo I try and convince every waiter/waitress that I ever have to accept a tip in BTC. By doing this it is at least making them aware of the existence of the technology and believe it or not, i have about a 25% success rate of getting them to accept the BTC. Thats pretty good in my opinion :)

    Do you help them set up a MyCelium(or other mobile) wallet on their smartphone? I think if we as a community organically spread the word about bitcoin to service industry employees, the use and popularity will spread like wildfire

    I just usually get them setup with blockchain so that way if they use applications that require Bitcoin payments, it can be easier for them to pay.

    I actually have never used MyCelium, I need to check it out though

    I just read that Google took down MyCelium from the Play store. You can still get it directly from their site but this still kinda sucks...

    Read a thread where a bunch of people were freaking out wondering if their current balances on their wallets would be effected.

    The general belief is that Google is wanting some of the miner fees people pay for transactions, and since they barely discovered this "hidden fee" (sarcasim intended) they are made that they havent been receiving their piece of the pie...

    I hope it all gets straightened out whatever their reason

    hey, everyone wants their piece of the pie. Imagine how expensive paypal btc transactions are gonna be? It will be like using it with usd
