  • 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: Upcoming Bitcoin Hard Fork & /r/bitcoin censorship

    @twebit What ever happened to the hard fork policy at bitcoin.org? https://bitcoin.org/en/posts/hard-fork-policy Does the XT violate this policy? Always wondered?

    They just state that they will not promote any hard forks on bitcoin.org, so i would not expect to see XT on the website. However Bitcoin is open sourced, so something like XT is permission-less, you dont ask anyone if your aloud to fork an open source project.

  • Re: Upcoming Bitcoin Hard Fork & /r/bitcoin censorship

    @tatianamoroz Hey guys, I would like to know what the hell is this fork thing? I keep hearing about it but seeing as I don't have much to contribute to the technical discussion, I haven't paid much attention. So how would you explain it to a person new to Bitcoin, or to someone non technical? Why is it happening? What are the possible repercussions? Does this mean Bitcoin's price will go down? Seems like a big deal, no? What problem were they trying to solve?

    You can start by reading this blog, it explains things pretty well https://medium.com/@octskyward/why-is-bitcoin-forking-d647312d22c1

    about 4 hours of mine today was consumed in reading about this. So to my understanding, the way this is being done with 75% of nodes needing to switch over is completely fair. And it shouldn't interrupt any service if it does not pass. If no one wants it, then they will not switch over.

    I expect this to pass, but i am curious on if Chinese miners will start to exit and if they might dump more Bitcoin then they normally would right at the cut over deadline

  • Re: SoG - Ethereumcard SwapBot Lottery

    @heunland @Andaloons, sorry to hear about the mixup. I suggest you also make this announcement on ethereum forums where perhaps the person that received your payment may be active. Good luck!

    If you look at the address it has tons of sog cards so I wouldn't think it would be anyone there, but perhaps

  • Re: SoG - Ethereumcard SwapBot Lottery

    @andaloons Somehow I sent 0.09115 to what I thought was the SwapBot address but it turned out to be another person's address that had JUST PURCHASED an Ethereumcard from the SwapBot. If you have a nice new shiny balance of 0.09115 at your address would you be so kind as to return it to me??

    Thanks!!

    -Andaloons

    Odds are that they may not be involved on LTB as they have no LTBCOIN, they also do not have any FLDC except the 10 giveaway from last year so i cant look through my records to see if i could tie it to a donor.

    However, I will announce this on my next podcast and hopefully they will hear it :D You could also join the counterpartytalk.org forums and ask there, i will send you an invite
