FoldingCoin: Get Paid to Fold for OCN

I happened to be browsing EoC stats on other teams and saw some users on other teams with their wallet address as their username and were not on Curecoin's Team. I check their forums and found out it's possible to receive FoldingCoins (FLDC) by running FAH on other teams.

Downside: This requires changing your FAH username to one with your wallet address in it so you can be paid out.

1. Get a wallet. Go to https://wallet.counterwallet.io/# and click on 'Create New Wallet'. It will give you a 12 word passphrase. WRITE IT DOWN! Check the box saying you have saved the phrase and click continue. The next option is to create a quick access URL with your own password or it can be skipped. The quick access URL can be done later if needed. You'll then be sent back to the main page to log in by copying in the passphrase.

2. Sign up for an exchange. There are two exchanges that accept FLDC, Bittrex and Poloniex. Bittrex is not accepting new users so we're left with Poloniex. It requires a bunch of info and images of an ID. I signed up over a week ago and it hasn't been verified yet. An exchange is not needed to receive FLDC, just to sell them or change for Bitcoin, etc.

3. Change your FAH username. Payout is given to anyone with a certain kind of username with a set structure that contains their counterwallet address. The format is username_ALL_walletaddress. So for me I changed my username to mmonnin_ALL_1PBP3Vi2uVsYEeDEbvSNxw52J2xKHv1jzd . Since passkeys are tied to your username/email your old one no longer works. It didn't for me and I received no QRB. I suggest to quickly complete 10 good WUs with the NaCl in Chrome.

Payout comes on the 1st Saturday of the month. I folded on a GTX 970 for a week and had 2.25 million points. This netted me 171 FLDC which is about $4.40 at an exchange rate of $0.025783 per FLDC. Not a whole lot but I wasn't gaining anything before.

My 1st Payout to mmonnin_ALL_1PBP3Vi2uVsYEeDEbvSNxw52J2xKHv1jzd


Hopefully this will bring back some folders from mining and draw in some new folders. Credit for the info goes to Overclockers who are coming up fast.

This is cool. I don't have the hardware for it anymore but its a nice incentive

Feel free to correct me. I'm right just as often as I am wrong. Or wrong as equally as I am right at least. I dunno I could be wrong about that..

There is no PPD limit. Any CPU/GPU will work.

Hehe Maybe I will. I haven't [email protected] since my GTX 260 back in the day.

Nice find mmonnin. The need for the wallet address at the end of your username is a bit tacky though.

I just wish all this mining stuff would go away , but if anyone is buying a GPU and doesn't want to waste electricity on imaginary things I guess this is a lesser evil.

The passphrase reminds me of electrum for BTC.

edit: another thing to note is unlike cyptomining folding does require PCIe lanes of x4 or greater typically. This means people can't scale indefinitely without a new motherboard once they pass a few cards. You know those 6+ GPU configurations on "mining" motherboards? Not happening unless you are running weaker GPUs such as GTX 750 Ti / GTX 960 / GTX 1050.

The wallet address does look ugly. But it allows for anyone to receive FLDC. Curecoin requires you to join their team. I wish Gridcoin would do something similar for BOINC.

I wish it would go away as well. The concept of a decentralized currency seems a bit like wearing a tinfoil hat. W/o a central authority, a currency will not be stable enough for widespread adoption to become a complete replacement for fiat. BTC is just for gambling and speculators atm. Those that are mining for an actual coin are alt coins and I'm not sure what those that mine ethereum, litecoin, monero, etc are doing with it besides holding it for eventual trading for BTC or fiat. I'm not that big into it but I'm not sure of the uses for mining other coins besides revenue.

At least in this case there is some actual benefit. The CPU/GPU is being put to good use besides crunching some hash algorithm to very a blockchain transfer. The computer has no extra software installed, and it's the exact same folding process with a wallet address as the name.

No 19 slot B350 motherboards will work for this for sure. There is also the CPU overhead for folding. An exponential credit return with QRB that entices users to push their cards.

My cousin has been mining after his former coworker (?) that works in a datacenter sold their coins at the $20K / BTC mark. I told him that it is a bit late to the party by a few years .

BTC has become too mainstream: my uncle who has little to no technology interest asked why people pay so much money for BTC after reading about it in a newspaper. It's that mainstream: all people involved (including those in charge of BTC) lost sight of the purpose , which is decentralized currency that can be sent anywhere with minimal time and payment. Now the BTC takes ages to process if you don't pay the transaction fee and most of the mining is done at an industrial level , with overtly large pools making the 51% attack susceptibility a prospect.

If gridcoin actually added something like BOINCStats where they simply use quorum 2 projects and checked your progression (with normalization based on project) it would be neat. As it is now, it just reeks of "sellout" to all the people that left their teams to get paid.

Interesting. Good to see a coin tied to something like Folding. I mess a bit with the cryptocoins (side hobby more or less), so glad to see this compare to the other ones.

I'm surprised no one else has set it up yet. All but 2 of TSC! Russia top 20 have usernames with wallets in them. Looks like 3/4 of their active users are with wallets.

Well, I am on orders at the moment and still in the process of moving. So, going to take time for me to get my Internet reset up again.
