  • 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: FLDC.XCP - Alternative to GPU Mining

    @otakusboy we only did one airdrop and it is over, as for the crowd funding has not even been advertised yet, we are currently working on the details but should be up before the end of the year.

  • Re: Is Mining worth it?

    @prototech but eventually when you keep that up, the original antminers that you buy will produce less and less until they became obsolete, and i would think that money could be better used buying BTC directly since the sifficulty increases 10% usually ever 2 weeks. thats what happened when i purchased my BFL, obviously that was when ASICs were new so i DEF will not see ROI, it still hasnt produced a whole BTC and its been almost a year.

  • Re: FLDC.XCP - Alternative to GPU Mining

    @ney we are currently trying to make FLDC the currency of MeetUp.com groups. More is to come from this as we are currently setting this up but if you read some of the previous pages on this forum you will see that conversation

  • Re: Is Mining worth it?

    @prototech how much did you invest total? And your roi cannot be that high (at least in my experience)

  • Re: Is Mining worth it?

    @petki4a yes i was one of the BFL investors and i learned that you do nit get your money back at all mining BTC, even the cloud hashing that you can buy for cheap like PETA is 0.0016 per Ghash but u only get paid 0.00001 a day, and that gets worse every day, so that would take over 100 days just to get your money back (if it stayed at that 0.00001 a day). Thats why we decided to do foldingcoin because at least the electricity used is for developing medicines, so its not a complete waste. Its as if you are donating the electricity cost to Stanford Universoty

  • Re: FLDC.XCP - Alternative to GPU Mining

    @mengine that means that no more coins can ever be created, even by our dev team. All the coins that have not yet been distributed are help in the address: http://www.blockscan.com/assetbyaddress.aspx?q=1DqgPfNnDKGJcXLbfTHX9MUL8x8St8ZX9P

    Currently there are 98,000,000 which means 40 days have been paid out. We always distribute to an LTB distribution address which then distributes to the participants of that day. We locked it so that way no one ever can say that we will just create more

  • Re: FLDC.XCP - Alternative to GPU Mining

    @mengine I agree, it did wonders for us. I have been answering forums and emails left and right since the airdrop. Thanks for helping contribute :)

    @c0d3m4st4 Thanks, great to have you :)

    Distributions have been paid out today, sorry was a little late, work went over

  • Re: Is Mining worth it?

    @thecalling418 do not do any BTC mining, u will not turn a profit, even cloud hashing. If ur gonna mine check out foldingcoin as it is ASIC proof. It's new so not valuable yet, but all altcoins are at the beginning http://www.foldingcoin.net
