  • 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: Windows or MacOS X or Linux?

    @supercat Linux is kernel, not OS. i used Debian GNU/Linux about two years, and i don't want go back to windows.

    Technically yes, but when explaining linux to someone, i do not refer to it as kernel, i call it an operating system because thats what it basically is :)

    @ikidesu

    @francescu In my case some weeks ago when I tried to enter to my Counterwallet account, the message of "Terms and Conditions" appeared but in the forum people said that you can accept and continue to the dashboard in which you can see your funds.

    IMAO be patient and keep trying in other navigators such as Firefox :P

    What should i do? :-/ i used firefox, i must change my browser? chrome?

    I use chrome. Also this happens about 3-5 times a week for me. Just wait an hour or so and it shoud come back. Everytime they do updates, the Counterwallet service needs to catch up to the BTC vbockchain

  • Re: Clock/Time on This Forum?

    @ikidesu I just want to suggest, how if put a clock/time on this forum?

    that would be nice, it would save me a little bit of math everyday :D

  • Scotcoin Joins Merged Folding!

    Scotcoin joins Foldingcoin’s fight against diseases!

    On February 5 2015, Scotcoin will become part of the merged folding network of Foldingcoin, contributing it’s mining power to the Stanford@Home network. This grid computing initiative enables scientists to use the combined computing power of individuals to find cures for diseases like Parkinson’s and cancer.

    To celebrate joining the merged folding initiative of Foldingcoin, Scotcoin provides 5 million free coins to the people that contribute to the Stanford@Home network. These coins are distributed over a period of 160 days, what equals 31,250 Scotcoin per day, divided evenly amongst all participants. While ‘mining’ for Scotcoin, contributors will also automatically earn Foldingcoin.

    According to Foldingcoin’s founder Robert Ross: “Foldingcoin welcomes all altcoins to join our merged folding initiative in order to stop wasting computing power on blockchains and use it for curing diseases instead!”, he continues “By becoming assets on the Counterparty network, altcoins do not need their own mining power anymore, but can use it to contribute to science. We help them set this up!”

    Start contributing to the Scotcoin initiative client is easy! It just requires people to Setup their wallet with counterwallet.io and Download and Setup their FAH Client.

    For more information about FoldingCoin and Merged Folding, please visit http://foldingcoin.net/ or email Robert Ross (rross@foldingcoin.net) directly with questions or concerns about the platform.

    FoldingCoin Inc. harnesses computational power used in alternative cryptocurrency blockchains to be used for Stanford@Home’s medical and scientific projects. When people contribute to the network, FoldingCoin compensates them with cryptocurrencies built on Counterparty.

  • Re: My mom has set up a fund raiser campaign for my fight w/ cancer...

    Hello :) I would love to donate some FLDC to your treatment anytime someone donates BTC to you.

    If you dont know what FLDC is, please visit http://foldingcoin.net/

    In a nutshell, FLDC is earned by contributing computing power to help find cures for cancer, Alzheimer, ext.... instead of mining a traditional Altcoin.

    Here's how we could do this:

    We are currently running fundraiser of our own using the Vennd.io platform. What Vennd does, is it sends a certain asset to someone depending on the amount of BTC that someone sends to a particular wallet. So in our case, anytime someone sends BTC to the wallet:

    12m9e3TqVTC8ndUagCPn6TXy1PPdw7kyGt

    FLDC is sent back to that wallet at a rate of 1 FLDC per 0.00001 BTC. We could setup the same kind of system for you (with the help of Vennd).

    If this is something that interests you please PM me or email me rross@foldingcoin.net

  • Re: ? FLDC = 1 BTC

    A correction to the above calculation, I did not take into factor the FPGAs that had hit the market really starting in Dec 12,

    26 TeraHASH X 12.7 PetaFLOPS = 330 PetaFLOPS.
