  • 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

    @bitillionaire Thank you for your helpful post Ross.

    For me, the solution has been:

    1. Create a
    2. Import that private key to Electrum
    3. Sign a message with that address, thereby verifying it for use with the LTBCoin rewards program

    So, hopefully on the next distribution, I'll be included. When I went to import the address I had previously verified with QT, there were only BTC assets associated with it. I don't know what that means, but I think I'm all set now. Will report back if not.

    Just to clarify, I believe that when you import the private key, it sweeps the current funds from that Bitcoin address. However, your new LTB will still go to that QT address unless you change it in your account settings on your LTB account. This will mean you will have to sweep again when you want your funds.

    Do you still have your address in LTB going to your QT?

    Sounds great, just to clarify about the Auction system as in the title it says "The end of the auction paradigm", you are not ending the auction program correct? Or are you replacing it with the vending machine?

  • Re: the price is interesting on poloniex

    @derhush price of ltbc rised sharply :>

    Since LTB offers sponsorship now, I feel the price should go up more over the next few weeks

  • Re: Hmm

    @bitillionaire But, my address is not counterparty compatible, and there is still some superfrustrating glitch with Counterwallet that won't sign messages. I've given up on collecting these magic words. Apparently they're only for you if you had an XCP wallet verified before this bug started.

    If you used a Bitcoin QT wallet then the funds had been sent to you, but QT cannot decrypt the Counterparty assets, so it will never show that LTBC in your wallet. Do these things to verify that you received LTBC:

    1. Check your QT wallet for small incoming transactions of 0.00006 BTC that was sent to you, that would be your LTBC

    2. Paste your address in and you will see that you have your LTB

    In order to get your LTB out of that wallet, you will need to import the private key of that wallet into a CP wallet, QT does not allow CP assets to be transfered.

  • Re: NXT enthusiast Marc De Mesel LTBc buyout offer declined.

    @optictopic @pooktwo I read the articles you posted from cryptocoinnews and found the Jeff Garzik perspective interesting. I found the response in the comment section equally compelling. The argument that a crypto-currency with distribution heavily weighted in the hands of a few is by definition flawed is not an argument in favor of bitcoin or nxt, both have very large sums in the hands of a few. After all it could be argued that there is a very real possibility that Satoshi Nakamoto holds the keys to over 1 million btc. Both technologies bring something to the crypto-world table and I wish them both wild success.
    I believe LTBcoin will be a success no matter which platform it builds on because it represents true value to a growing community. At this stage in the game it doesn't hurt to bet a little here and there on the most promising techs. My favorites are BTS, NXT and what I feel will be the biggest of them all, Maid. I get excited when I think of the game changing effects the safenetwork brings to the table. Cheers, Rich

    Fair enough. There are tons of new exciting applications being built and I have a stake in all of them (some more than others) and which ever one comes out on top will no doubt ably be better than the current financial system. Me money is on CP though :)

  • Re: NXT enthusiast Marc De Mesel LTBc buyout offer declined.

    @optictopic @pooktwo Thank you for the detailed response. From what you said it makes sense to maintain the close relationship with the developers behind Counterparty. It also makes sense for NXT to develop on top of Tokenly to create more value within the NXT system. Why do you believe the NXT devs to be driven less by community than profit?

    Well if you look at the responses from Marc in youtube alone, you get that feeling. For example: he doesnt seem to understand that LTBC is a community coin and is not trying to become the next BTC. From what I gather, Marc seems to have a vision that LTBC should be, he even responded by saying he wants to backup LTBC with NXT now, when that is simply not a good idea.

    I guess I can't lump all NXT in that category, or even Marc for that matter. He is just trying to expand NXT by absorbing LTBC which you cant blam a guy for trying. And profit does make things successful, there is no doubt about that. Many NXT projects seem legit and interesting. I just dont like the closed-development group that NXT really is. I don't have a great feeling about them at times and trust other 2.0 projects more. Even Ethereum is disappointing that they are taking forever to release, but the dev team explains everything so well, and are super responsive to the community that i trust them. Here are two great articles to read in which I tend to stay away from NXT (just to clarify, I do hold some NXT, but I hold a little of everything lol):

  • Re: NXT enthusiast Marc De Mesel LTBc buyout offer declined.

    @optictopic @pooktwo I would love to see LTBc as an asset in the NXT platform. It seems to me that the decentralized community of the NXT platform is more robust, active, creative and productive than Counterparty's community. This is my impression and would like to know if you disagree and why.

    When FoldingCoin actually began, we had discussions on going on NXT or CP since those where the 2 options that are available. We went with CP because we actually feel that more development is happening on the CP side then the NXT side.

    Why Counterparty

    • LTB offers so many products and features compatible with CP assets

    • Counterparty Developers are very open about everything going on over there. They also have a face to every developers name

    • Counterparty devs are very responsive to companies having assets on their platform

    • Since we believe BTC is the future of money and not any other crypto, its nice to have FoldingCoin built inside the largest most widely used blockchain, every other blockchain is not as developed or has nearly as many followers. For example: If you had to recommend to buy a crypto to a friend who doesnt have any or know anything about it, would you suggest BTC or NXT

    • Overstock has shown interest in building a decentralized Stock market with Counterparty devs

    • Counterparty is much less intimidating than NXT. Yes NXT has great features, but the average person does not want all that. CP is smooth and simple, yet has the ability to be as complex as you would like

    • We love the idea of the "burn" where the funds where not even available to the devs

    Wny not NXT

    • very secrative at the beginning with developers being anonymous. It was great for Satoshi, but in the words of george harrison "its been done". Satoshi had no profit motive in mind, he wanted a better system. And Marc actually says in his response to adam, and i quote from youtube "and that's what will make us wealthy"

    • NXT never did this, but played with the idea of rolling back their blockchain when someone had millions stole from it. The person who got theft-ed did not secure his funds in the proper manner and should have been more careful. The fact that the NXT devs even suggested doing that is beyond me, and the fact that they would have been able to since its pOS and not POW is dangerous

    • NXT is not community driven, they are profit driven

    • NXT is still mostly held by the original devs and not the community
