Tokenly Bitsplit Integration

Adam Levine joined us at the meeting today to discuss the new collaboration between FoldingCoin and the Bitsplit product. Tokenly is now contracted to do the following work for the FoldingCoin team:

  1. Integrate the FoldingCoin database directly within Bitsplit so that distributions can be automatically integrated with the distribution address. This will also be available to the public so that way other projects can easily (and permissionlessly) distribute their respective tokens on the FoldingCoin platform. Adam showcased the current prototype and announced that the product should be fully tested and working by next meeting.
  2. Adam discussed some new Counterparty CIPs that could significantly reduce the cost of sending FLDC out to the participants. Robert and Miguel will have further talks with Adam throughout the upcoming weeks to discuss these proposals.
  3. Adam had some interesting ideas that he has shared with the FoldingCoin team about value propositions for FLDC. We decided not to discuss these at this meeting as these ideas are very new, but by next meeting we will discuss them with the community.
  4. The current prototype for the FLDC Bitsplit integration is found at http://bitsplit-fldc.ironcladtech.ca/ but it is not recommended to use, as the domain will change and the prototype is not yet ready.

FoldingCoin Dev Team

Miguel has started to put together a team of developers for the FoldingCoin project. We now have the following persons fully on staff:

  • Robert Ross – Director
  • Miguel Molina – R&D Director (read below about the role change)
  • Helene Unland – Community Support
  • Jeff Mooreland – AIO and Hardware Support on Slack
  • Damien – Staff Engineer
  • Hunter – QA Support
  • Norbert – Webmaster and Web Redisgn
  • Tokenly – Contracted for Bitsplit integration (Merged Folding)

Now FoldingCoin has a large team to begin doing some real work. Robert and Miguel will begin to focus on the upcoming sprint and what needs to be done with the new team members over the next 2 months.

 

We have decided that Miguel is better suited for a Development management role, rather then writing code himself. Miguel has been moved to be the R&D director and will manage any and all code and developers that work on the project.

Charity Cloud Folding for the 501c3 sponsored CureCoin Project has eight donated PC’s now being assembled. Still waiting on response from facilities with possible free power or reduced cost (may wind up in datacenter east of Denver in Watkins Colorado). The folding activity will be 100% merge folding. The short term goal isn’t efficiency, but to prove the concept of generate revenue for charity while being able to sustaining ongoing folding.

Charity project’s donated Equipment and GPU collection so far:

  • 7 HP 3130 i5 mini towers
  • 1 Dell server
  • PDUs and two 1G switches and related cabling
  • 4x Fury X nanos
  • 2x AMD 295
  • 1x GTX 960
  • 1x GTX 560
  • 2x 980’s

Created new user id for the charity cloud merge folding account that is less ambiguous (I’ll post it on slack and in the youtube comments if anyone wants to throw some folding power at it – all proceeds go to either maintenance of the system, or disbursed across 12 charities ranging from medical research to supporting veterans):

No individual on the charity part of curecoin (aka the 501c3 sponsored “the CureCoin Project”) will earn a salary except for our sponsor Visions Made Viable collects an administrative fee for processing our donations to charities.

More information on donating fiat via Paypal to help fund the expansion of the cloud merge folding is located here:

https://curecoin.net/dev-blog/#donate (websites under maintenance, but the link works). More information about the charity side of Curecoin is on twitter: https://twitter.com/CureCoinProject

CureCoin 2.0 (aka SigmaX blockchain) build 3u will likely be the public beta candidate (we’re preparing a forum thread for confluence of discussion and bug reporting).

Change in semantics: Something we’ve recently discussed is a change in semantics regarding cryptocurrency … rather than cryptocurrency, digital currency, or “coins”, Max mentioned the use of generic “token” instead of coin maybe more proper based on some of the latest regulations.

Reminder that on July 6th and 7th Stanford Servers are down for maintenance … CureCoin Cryptobullionpools.com will be using the opportunity to conduct server maintenance as well.

All items listed are current plan of record and subject to change. Curecoin reserves the right to modify roadmap and projections as necessary. While every effort will be made on social media to notify the public of any changes. Any questions can be forwarded to ivan.tuma.jr@gmail.com

Other FoldingCoin News

  • Jona Derks has stepped down as the other board member for the FoldingCoin team. Some things have come up in his life that will prevent him from continuing with the project.

Jona will try and make a future meeting to give a final goodbye, and he is always welcome to attend any meeting he chooses to in the future.
  • Replacing Jona on the board is Miguel Molina. He is now the other board member for the team, so Miguel and Robert will be making final decisions on the project.

If you have a medical background in protein simulations we would love to talk. Please email rross@foldingcoin.net for more information.
