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.

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.
