Download the FoldingBrowser

It is recommended for new users to download the FoldingBrowser Windows Installer to get started, as it will bring you through all of the steps to get setup automatically. Please DOWNLOAD the installer from the Github page at https://github.com/Hou5e/FoldingBrowser/releases to get started.

For additional info, please see the FoldingBrowser Setup Video.

BEFORE USING ADVANCED….

Note: this advanced method is the old way of doing things. Before you proceed with the following setup, please consider using the above downloadable installation package as it will ENSURE that you have setup everything properly. Keep the following common questions in mind:
  • 1. FLDC is only distributed on the first weekend of every month. This is due to the high BTC fees it requires to send out the FLDC
  • 2. CURE is distributed daily and you need to talk with the Curecoin team about any issues arising with their token.
  • 3. DO NOT use Tokenly Pockets anymore as it has been discontinued
  • 4. DO NOT USE AN EXCHANGE ADDRESS such as from Poloniex or Bittrex. If any issues arise we WILL NOT be able to help you recover these and you will need to open support tickets with THOSE organizations. USING AN EXCHANGE ADDRESS SHOULD BE AVOIDED COMPLETELY
  • 5. FAH does NOT ALLOW certain special characters. This includes the @ symbol. So if you use an email address in your FAH name, your BTC address will come up void. Please avoid using any symbol with the exception of the underscore.
