@Vorksholk
How much is the total supply of Curecoin? Unlimited?
Are there any reference values for PPD with 280x gpus?

There is no hard limit to the number of curecoins, however a set amount (7488 until the block halving in 4 years) is paid out per day for folding. As the coin is PoS, the total network value will continue to grow.



There isn't a specific reference yet, however a 280x is basically a 7970, which should be earning somewhere around 120-160k PPD.

Hi questions from a noob :

-In the f@h client, what should I do when one of my gpu is showing in red with failed written on it?
-I have 2 absolutly identical rigs, why one is showing 300k ppd and the other only 90k? The only difference I see is the number of the project, one is working on 9406, the other is working on 9408.
-When ppd points are credited from f@h to curecoin account? 2500k ppd done and zero showing on my account...

Thank you


Hey Daliss! The update from f@h to the Curecoin folding pool (cryptobullionpools.com) occurs once every 24 hours. Smiley

For your rigs, those projects are very similar, and shouldn't be showing that discrepancy. Has this changed? If not, check the logs, and manually calculate the TPF by looking at the difference between timestamps on two messages from the same FS0x saying a new percent has completed, and compare that to the other rig. If those are similar, you should be fine and the PPD calculation is just off for now. If they are drastically different, then one machine is running significantly slower.

For a failed GPU, try restarting the computer, though that sounds like the driver is reporting a bad/failing GPU. Does mining work alright on that card?

When is the payout @ cryptobullionpools.com done? is it every 24h @ a specific time every day?

So far I have done 20 WU, but score is 0, How long does it take to get some points?

Yup, done once ever 24 hours, the next payout will be around 2am EST.
604  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: ANN CureCoin is launched 5/10/2014 on: May 11, 2014, 02:53:15 PM
Seems like it would be very energy inefficient to fold with a CPU when you have a GPU, no? Is there a reason to keep the CPU going if it's not needed for the GPUs unless I have free energy or a REALLY grand desire to throw every possible resource at this? Smiley


Also, how long does it take them to send me a passkey? It's been 30 minutes and still nothing to both the emails I've tried. Not in the spam folder.


Edit: I guess this is my first post here, so I'll take the chance to congratulate the team on this excellent endeavor. I'm one of the donors and a long time follower and supporter. There's something heartwarming about seeing my processing power going towards something so useful! The last time I did this I only had a Pentium 2 running at 300mhz. Cheesy

Depending on the type of CPU you have, GPU mining is generally *far* more efficient. For people with very beefy CPUs (16+ cores) on linux, they can get bigadv WUs, which can earn upwards of 300k PPD. However, with standard desktop processors, the points payout is considerably lower (by a factor of 10-40) .
605  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: ANN CureCoin is launched 5/10/2014 on: May 11, 2014, 02:51:07 PM
Whats the difference between a mining pool and a folding pool ?

The folding pool (cryptobullionpools.com) handles the payouts for all folding earnings.
The mining pools are set up by 3rd parties, and allow people to use their ASICs to secure the blockchain and get the mining share of the coin. Smiley
606  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: ANN CureCoin is launched 5/10/2014 on: May 11, 2014, 02:38:56 PM
You got my ASICs mining Curecoin and 4 mostly-idle computers folding. Well done!

Although it's way too soon for extra projects, any thoughts about curecoin becoming a part of human-powered folding via http://fold.it/ or similar?

Great question! One of the benefits of the way we are handling payouts is that new projects can be added to the coin, which would allow people to earn coins on more projects than folding@home. While we aren't planning for any specific project right now, the possibility is certainly there, fold.it is an awesome project, and a human-powered means of earning Curecoins would certainly be an attraction.
607  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: ANN CureCoin is launched 5/10/2014 on: May 11, 2014, 02:36:13 PM
at step 8, Do i create my account with the same user name and email when i repuest passkey?
i run FAH 3 hours ago but my account in cryptobullionpools.com have nothing : PPD : 0 - CUR/Day (est) : 0
I believe it's only calculated every 24 hours? One of the devs can clarify that.
cryptobullions will keep showing 0. But you will get paid daily for your PPD. To look if its working/ look at your current points / look at curecoin team stats...
(click on 224497 in your folding at home program)  or click here :
http://fah-web.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/main.py?qtype=teampage&teamnum=224497
edit : ofc will only show points if you have indeed finished a wu /workunit. (workunits i get usully average @ 8hours)
Thank you very much.
I saw my username in Team members 224497.
But how do i create new account in cryptobullionpools.com to recieve CUR from my points? i have to use the same username and email when i request passkey?

Yup!! Use the exact same username for the cryptobullionpools.com pool as you used for folding@home on the passkey request form. If you want to double-check that username, look at the email you received, it will have your exact username in it.
608  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / [CURE] Illustrated Protein Folding EC2 Setup Guide: 300k PPD per Server! on: May 11, 2014, 06:23:08 AM
Hello! While folding on GPU hardware is a great way to earn Folding@Home points for protein research, if you do not have GPUs, or want to do a lot of folding, EC2 can be an alternate option to rack up those folding points.

For this tutorial, you need an amazon EC2 account, and a computer. This tutorial is done at a keyboard of a Windows computer. Linux and Mac OS X are extremely similar. This will be using the Oregon region. You can select other regions to test pricing. Each region requires the creation of a different private key.

Step 1:  
Log in to your EC2 account. Click on "Request Spot Instance".


Step 2:
Click "Select" for Ubuntu Server 14.04 LTS (PV). HVM will also work, but will perform about 1%-2% slower.


Step 3:
Choose the c3.8xlarge instance type (108 ECUs).


Step 4:
Enter the maximum per-hour price you are willing to pay. Make sure it is at least 25% greater than the above-shown "Current Price" options.


Step 5:
Click the "Launch" button.


Step 6:
Select "Create a new key pair" from the dropdown menu, then name your keypair, and click the "Download Key Pair" button. NOTE: if you have already set up one instance before, you can skip down to step 25, and just double-click on the saved instance.


Step 7:
After downloading the private key (.pem) file, click on "Request Spot Instance".


Step 8:
Make sure that EC2 has successfully created your Spot Instance request (A green check-mark in a green confirmation box will appear, as shown). Then click on "View Spot Requests".


Step 9:
Click on the "Instances" option, as shown below. At first, nothing will show up. Leave this window as is for now.


Step 10:
Download PuTTYGen from http://the.earth.li/~sgtatham/putty/latest/x86/puttygen.exe, then open it up. Click on the "Load" button.


Step 11:
Change the file selector to "All Files (*.*)" to allow you to choose the .pem file you downloaded from Amazon. Then browse for and select the keyfile, and open it up.


Step 12:
You will get a message about the successful import. Click "Ok" to continue.


Step 13:
Inside of PuTTYGen, make sure the SSH-2 RSA radiobutton is selected (this is the default), and click on "Save Private Key".


Step 14:
You will get a warning prompt about saving the private key without a password. This is fine, click "Yes".


Step 15:
You will get a "Save As" prompt. Choose a place to save the keyfile, and name it something simple.


Step 16:
Download PuTTY from http://the.earth.li/~sgtatham/putty/latest/x86/putty.exe and open it up. Then, click on the "Data" option under "Connection" on the left options pane.


Step 17:
On the "Auto-login username" box, enter "ubuntu".


Step 18:
Click on the + sign next to "SSH" under "Connection" in the left options pane.


Step 19:
Click on the word "Auth" (not the plus) under "SSH" under "Connection" in the left options pane.


Step 20:
Click on the "Browse..." button next to the box for "Private key file for authentication".


Step 21:
An "open file" dialog prompt will appear. Browse to and select the new keyfile (.ppk) that we generated with PuTTYGen. Click on the "Open" button.


Step 22:
Click on the text at the top labeled "Session" in the left options pane.


Step 23:
Type a name in the "Saved Sessions" box. Then, click the "Save" button.


Step 24:
Go back to the EC2 "Instances" page. You may need to click on the refresh button (either in the browser or on the page) in order to see your server. Note the IP.


Step 25:
Enter this IP address into PuTTY, under the "Host Name (or IP address)" box.


Step 26:
A new window will pop up. You may be asked about trusting a fingerprint, accept. Type into the window:
Code:
sudo -i



Step 27:
Now, type:
Code:
apt-get update



Step 28:
Now, type:
Code:
apt-get install htop



Step 29:
Now, type:
Code:
mkdir /etc/fahclient



Step 30:
Now, type:
Code:
wget 1.curecoinmirror.com/config.xml -O /etc/fahclient/config.xml

Code:
http://i.imgur.com/yT6Gk8e.png

Step 31:
Now, type:
Code:
nano /etc/fahclient/config.xml



Step 32:
Now, use the arrow keys to move through the file. Enter your passkey and username as shown below.


Step 33:
Now, type:
Code:
wget https://fah.stanford.edu/file-releases/public/release/fahclient/debian-testing-64bit/v7.4/fahclient_7.4.4_amd64.deb



Step 34:
Now, type:
Code:
sudo dpkg -i --force-depends fahclient_7.4.4_amd64.deb



Step 35:
Press the "Enter" key on your keyboard to accept <Yes> for whether FAHClient should be automatically started.


Step 36:
Wait 30 seconds.
Now, type:
Code:
nano /var/lib/fahclient/log.txt



Step 37:
Press Control + v four times to scroll down the log. Get to where it shows your Project. If it is 8101, 8102, 8103, 8104, or 8105, you successfully got a BigAdv WU. Alternately, check that is says 0xa5 to the left of the colon. Press Control + X when you are done.

You are done setting up! However, to keep your folding@home account in good standing, always finish your WUs. If you want to shut down your EC2 server, type:
Code:
nc 127.0.0.1 36330
finish
exit

You can look in the log again, and scroll all of the way to the bottom to see the current percentage:
Code:
nano /var/lib/fahclient/log.txt

Again, use Control + X to exit.

On average, each percentage point takes 14 minutes. It takes less for faster projects such as 8104 (averaging around 12 minutes), and longer for slower projects like 8101 (17 minutes).
You can type:
Code:
htop
To see your current processor usage. When finished, all of the 32 cores will drop from full 100% utilization to near-zero. When you see this, it is safe to terminate your EC2 instance from the EC2 panel without losing any folding@home work.

It is known how folding points will be exchanged into curecoins? I mean exchange rate or sth

Currently, the folding pool pays out a certain amount of Curecoins per day, right now 7488 coins. The PPD represents the points that you earned in the last 24 hours, and is used in calculating the distribution. Say, for example, that all Curecoin folders combined folded 10,000,000 Points yesterday, and you folded 100,000. You would get 1% of that day's payout, which would account for 74.88 CUR. Smiley

Thanks for clarification. This daily 7488 is fixed or will be lowered later?

7488 is 'fixed' and will follow block halving. It might change for various reasons, like a 2x holiday or something of the like, but it's going to stay pretty steady at 7488/day for a few years. Smiley

I have 4 270x gpu's running and am getting 1679 points per day off of each card...  Is that good?

That's quite low, are they showing high utilization in Afterburner/Trixx? Are they on Core_17 in FAHControl when you click on the slot 01?
616  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: ANN CureCoin is launched 5/10/2014 on: May 10, 2014, 10:00:47 PM
I give up on trying to fold.


Oh Sad Did you wait a few minutes for the GPUs to kick in?

i've downloaded many other wallets it never does that... i'm giving up here trying to compile -qt on linux, qt should work there right?

Qt should. Did you try downloading from a different mirror? I just tried the download on Windows 7 and 8 on a few different computers, and none of them are doing that. :/

Qt should work fine on Linux when you compile it.

I thought I would point some of my rigs for folding for Curecoin, but after this scam launch there's no way I'll ever do that...

200 block instamined nice, great I can't believe you failed that much. Near 0.1% of curecoin that are going to be mined are now in the hands of a few ones

Are you guys living under a rock or something? have you ever heard of kgw or dgw?

I whish only one thing, that your fucking scam just fail...
I downloaded QT in few minutes after start and there were 3 blocks. There is no instamine. But I don't understand how to mine this coin with CPU's.

You can mine with your CPU by typing 'setgenerate true -1' in the console:
Help -> Debug Window -> Console
However, at this difficulty, CPU mining will be extremely hard if not impossible.
I mean how to folding it with CPU's and receive coins for it.

Ohh, sorry! You can head over to https://www.curecoin.us/index.php?topic=3482.0 for a picture-text tutorial, or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-YEZzBZ0suE For a video tutorial Smiley
