  • 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

    @d415a it shows here http://foldingcoin.net/FLDC-Daily-Payout-Summaries/20140824.html that you received it looks like 325 credits worth, the rest will come today, sometimes it can be delayed but there isnt anything we can do about that. I will watch your address again today to ensure that you receive your amount

    @hesham3del

    @pooktwo @hesham3del Thank you :) please let me know if you would want to do a skype session with me and the other devs, or if you want to contribute by just staying on top of the forums that is a great help as well as you seem to be very knowledgeable about what we are trying to do. Please email me at rross@foldingcoin.net if you would like to receive anything from me or ask anything outside of the forums. And you should totally give me a counterparty address so i can tip you :) Thanks a million!

    Dear @pooktwo

    It's my honor to do a Skype session with you and devs, I'm looking forward for it, I just need to read more about about FLDc.

    Beside I like and understand FLDc (I've read about Folding since years ago and saw Egyptian team which had ranking between other teams over the world and I liked the idea), you and James, are one of the kindest and nice person ever's I've meet in the crypto currency world, you remind me of Adam, Cryptonaut and Rob in the LTBn, this is where I get my power from, from your HEART.

    I would like to be added as an official helper for the FLDc, as I'm now for the LTBn.

    My address is here 1LzWSHxTRxYRKNvJ6w4zzgPSbihMbYbxPK

    Thank you for the tipping and I'm looking forward to grow with you and with the FLDc.

    Thats great :) thank you for the kind words as well :) I look foward to doing a skype with you to discuss you coming on board. Since it is morning time for you now, and night time for me, lets try and find a time over skype that works for the both of us. Cheers :)

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

    FLDC is now selling for 0.000001 BTC per FLDC on counterwallet

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

    @sbatz72 our complete guide is http://www.foldingcoin.net/index.php/step-step/ to get started folding

    The medical research has helped the following papers https://folding.stanford.edu/home/papers/

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

    @sbatz72 any processor will work with the program (even a pentium III) so if you have a laptop or PC just install the program and your off :) Thanks for the kind words to, but i do want to clarify that we are not with the university, this is a project not supported by stanford, its just our way of trying to help bring more awareness to what they are trying to do.

    They have a goal of 1 million CPUS and only have 170,000 right now so every 1 counts :)

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

    @shopnhowler This is their direct page http://fah-web.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/main.py?qtype=teampage&teamnum=226728

    But I like this third party site http://folding.extremeoverclocking.com/team_summary.php?s=&t=226728

    And the medical papers produced are here https://folding.stanford.edu/home/papers/

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

    @shopnhowler the devs are currently working on the following things:

    -continue to upgrade the website

    -continue to find ways to make distribution of the coin easier

    -get the word out on forums (I live on forums all over the internet and I am starting to upload those to the website)

    -get people in our local communities to start folding with their computers

    -getting on exchanges

    -social media advertising

    I am now the guy amongst my friends that talks about this great program folding@home. Stanford states that tey want 1 million computers but currently hve only 200,000. I feel with the advocatio of the coin it will not only bring awareness to F@H but also brig awareness to BTC.

    But in general the beautiful thing about this project is there isn't much overhead or development needed, so we can focus on creating an economy around the coin.

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

    @butch not at the time, but the more popular it becomes, the more valuable it will become. All coins have to start somewhere and we are only a month old. Unlike the 300+ other altcoins that are just constantly being put on mining cryptoswitch programs, ours is unable to be mined, it is not a coin but rather a token. We believe that this gives it value in comparison to the other coins. some other things that give it value are:

    -the devs of our coin do not have to focus on security of the coin, that is covered by counterparty and Bitcoin Network

    -It is backed by medical research, not just a new blockchain

    -current ASICs cannot go after it because it is not just a single algorithm

    -we are actively trying to develop uses for the coin such as being a currency for meetup.com groups
