  • 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: Accepting LTBCoin for FoldingCoin (FLDC)

    @cyrusfx I'm sorry if this information is available elsewhere, I couldn't find it, but I'm wondering if there's any way to get the "Advanced Client" for FLDC to recognize ASIC devices. So far I just have 2 CPUs slowly folding away on 2 different projects.

    Is there a link available that explains how to configure the FoldingCoin client to recognize mining hardware? Thanks!

    Cyrus

    Unfortunately this is not possible. Remember, ASIC stands for "Application SPECIFIC Integrated Circuit". The applications that the mining ASICs use is either Scrypt or SHA256.

    Folding uses different applications that are far more advanced than just a single algorithm. There is a folding ASIC out there called "Anton Supercomputer" but it is expensive and not readily available to the public, but who knows, If folding gets as popular as bitcoin, there will be a need for it to come in economy size. Because before bitcoin, SHA256 never would have needed to go that fast.

    yes, thank you for that. but what I mean is the fldc-referral-program. link that you give can not open

    That means you do not have any FLDC in your LTB registered address. Now that you have 10 FLDC that I sent you from the faucet, simply follow these steps of registering that address with LTB http://letstalkbitcoin.com/forum/post/easy-step-by-step-guide-to-get-set-up-to-receive-ltbcoins and after you do that, you wil be able to view the forum

    @troy112 I could help you in next auction, if you need any help. pm me

    Just sent you the PM :)

    @apple This brings up an interesting possible site feature, lookup users by the address linked to their account. Or at least message them without necessarily know their username and then they could choose to respond or not.

    Thats actually not a bad idea. I wonder if something like this could be implemented. I tried looking for a way to lookup the address but no easy solution was here in the website that I can see.

    @cryptonaut Is this possible to do at this point, or possibly in the future?

  • Dear 13pg7QhkDnfWVPiprFdi7yr5QHumm1zTd6, I want your coins!

    Hello, this is Robert with FoldingCoin.

    Due to my job I keep missing these auctions and you happen to have a few tokens I would like to have to promote FLDC:

    • 6 LTBdisplay
    • 6 Sponsor
    • 2 Coinfiread

    I would love to buy these off of you for BTC or LTBcoin or a mixture of the two. It would really help bring the adoption of our project and help spread the word. Hope you see this!
