  • 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: Is there any site to sell FLDC cause I didnt found any

    @cryptonaut @alwinlinzee yes and they think our project is a fantastic idea, they want to see a good use for the coin first before bringing us on. We are def going the route of implementing this as a meetup coin and I have several meetings about this starting tomorrow.

  • Re: FLDC.XCP - Alternative to GPU Mining

    We are testing the new distribution system so this morning you will see you received another payment the same as yesterdays, this was a test so these are freebies (this was taken out of the main wallet for testing, but we put the funds right back in from our personal, see http://foldingcoin.net/index.php/distribution-history/ for the wallets that performed this)

  • Re: Is Mining worth it?

    @rebelchicken but we propose is great in two ways:

    -its not an algorithm, its a process called protein folding for medical research, so ASICs cannot do it at all (there is a supercomputer called an Anton that can, but this has not been developed for public use, if it did though that would be great for F@H)

    -instead of selling your GPUs, why not give back to the http://stanford.folding.edu project that helps create medicines that can better all humanity, not just the altcoin community

  • Re: FLDC.XCP - Alternative to GPU Mining

    @mengine many people have asked about this same problem and i dont seem to have it :( i offer a team viewer session if anybody wants one including yourself to have a look, our you could go to https://foldingforum.org/ to find the actual folding forum that has been around for a while. Im doing my own research on this and will share with everyone once i find the problem. I dont know if NVIDIA requires you to have CUDA installed or not either, that is a possibility, (or maybe your particular GPU isnt supported)

  • Re: FLDC.XCP - Alternative to GPU Mining

    oh yeah, distribution paid, quick stats:

    7 Day Active Folders: 48

    7 Day Inactive Folders: 29

    Credits this payout: 2,489,991

    Total credits: 71,835,808

    Team Speed: 39 / 220,559

    Team Rank: 386 / 220,559

    FLDC per credit: 0.20080394

  • Re: FLDC.XCP - Alternative to GPU Mining

    @mengine WU is "work Units" basically want this is is the actual particular protein that you are working on (you know how in the program you have a status bar, that status bar is the actual WU) the reason why you can have a lot of credits but not that many WU, or a lot of WU and not that many credits is basically the difference in folding a protein with a CPU or GPU. GPUs automatically fold larger protein molecules that would take a CPU a very long time to do. So with a GPU you only accumulate a WU every day or 2 (depending on your GPU) but you receive alot of credits because it was a more complicated task. CPUs deal with less complicated proteins, it seems like with a good processor you can create 2-3 WU a day but since they are less complicated, you dont receive that many credits.

    Both are important as they deal with differnet medical research, but the network will match up a WU to your particular device in accordance to its power and ability to maximize your credit accumulation.

  • Re: Is there any site to sell FLDC cause I didnt found any

    @Josh1776 the counterparty exchange is very flaky :( We are working hard trying to get on other exchanges because of this problem. We are only a month old so many of the exchanges are doing their research on us before accepting, but all think it is a great coin and a good idea :)

    Another limitation some exchanges are having is they are not fully counterparty ready yet.

  • Re: Is there any site to sell FLDC cause I didnt found any

    @akinale im sry, i dont understand :(

  • Re: Is there any site to sell FLDC cause I didnt found any

    @denissidoro Thanks, it actually went very well :) i cannot disclose the exchange but i have now talked to 2 different representatives from them. I can say that they say this coin is for sure one of the most unique and potentially useful coin they have come across. The big perks they like are:

    -Current ASICs cannot mine it

    -It creates medicines

    -it can be appealing to the general public and not just BTC enthusiasts

  • Re: What is FLDC ?

    @d415a interesting.... you didnt get credited those other 325 for some reason today (and we are missing 0.02% of the credits) We are reviewing our code to see why this is but in the meantime here is 1000 out of my personal for our mistake somewhere. I will update everyone when we find this glitch and we will make sure that no other credits have been lost somehow, and if they have we will make it right. Thank you for pointing this out
