Hi everyone,

I'm a SolarCoin supporter and always looking for other cryptocurrencies that have a positive mission to help the world. There are very few.

I recently heard of CureCoin and am impressed with your idea.

I read a couple of articles on CoinDesk from just a few days ago which mention the concept of CureCoin -- mining for proteins via the Folding@home project -- but which say that this idea has not yet been implemented. These articles do not actually mention CureCoin, so it sounds like they've never heard of it.

Quote
Computational power can be used for other things, such as distributed protein folding and searching for patterns in extraterrestrial radio signals. The problem is that computing tasks like these aren’t the same types of task as solving the cryptography problems intrinsic to cryptocurrency production, and no one seems to have worked out a way to marry the two so far. This means curing cancer or AIDS, while also mining digital coins isn’t a reality.

Source: http://www.coindesk.com/cryptocurrency-mining-help-archive-societys-important-data/

Quote
Stanford University professor Vijay Pande would like coin miners’ help with his scientific project, Folding@home, which uses donated computing power to help find cures for devastating diseases. He also helps run the Stanford Bitcoin Group, which conducts research into Bitcoin theory and applications.

“There are multiple people emailing me describing the natural synergies between Folding@home and the way Bitcoin works,” he said. ...

Ultimately, as one bright spot on a Reddit thread suggested, someone would develop a crypto currency that could solve scientific problems during the mining process – effectively solving problems for professors while also finding coins. This is much harder than it looks, warns Pande.

Source: http://www.coindesk.com/should-you-mine-for-profit-or-proteins/

Based on reading these articles, I must ask, has CureCoin already implemented this great leap forward and CoinDesk just doesn't know about it yet? Or is CureCoin advertising itself as something that it's really not? Do people really get mining rewards of CureCoins while using their computing power for Folding@home?

I look forward to replies from the CureCoin community. Thank you!  Smiley

Ello,

The bigger curecoin thread is here (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=603757.0).

I know a few people including myself have emailed coindesk (I'm not a dev) the last few weeks but to no avail so far.

Thank you. I'll check out the other thread.

It's surprising and somewhat disturbing that coins with a scientific and humanitarian purpose like this one don't get more attention. The pump-and-dumps seem to get most of the trading volume and big market caps. As a fellow supporter of cryptocurrencies with conscience, I wish much success to CureCoin and will probably buy some.

The one issue is that curecoin will always be centralized. Even if we get fah to sign points so our wallet gets its own coins vs coins being distributed by the developers, we hit it being centralized by fah who can issue coins to anyone at anytime by typing in points.

Sadly nothing can replace pow in Bitcoin for a universal currency where you have powerful governments at play.

I'm going to guess some part of this is not open source. Am I right?

Anyway, great project, wish it all the best.

It is open source but not decentralized. Coin issuance is centralized.

You cannot solo fold or make your own folding pool.

But I love it and fold with or without curecoin

I know in "Crypto" profit is god. 
But Folding for cures is one I will continue to do if cure coin value is zero.  People doing the SETI thing don't get Alien coins and they still do it. 
CPU cylces to cure diseases on planet earth, are much more plausible and relevant to humans beings.  More so than a stray, hiddieho neighbor, from an extraterrestrial.

Who knows, the disease you help cure today could save yours or your great grandchild's life. 

On the flipside,  If we do make contact with aliens.  They can come cure everything, and save us all from... each other?  After all who wants a bunch of sick and dying slaves/livestock?

Great, everyone doesn't have the resources to be philantropists.    One day I will, but need to pay of this debt first -- get out of economic  slavery.

tldr

So is it released ? You can do folding while mining ? I thought that was impossible.

There is mining on the SHA side... but the rewards are relatively small.
The majority of the coins go to folders.

Funny, I had always hoped someone would connect a project like this to a crypto currency.
I used to fold a couple years ago... did a lot of work for Find-a-Drug and lots of Boinc projects.
I even tried Grid coin but has so much trouble getting it to work properly.

Now, I have all my machines pointed at the CureCoin Project with folding.
Finally, a crypto worth it's weight in gold!

I will NEVER ask for any kind of funds up front in a buy/sale of anything on bitcointalk.

ASICs can still mine for now, and CC2 is currently undergoing heavy development. Cheesy

What about this CC2, will it works like CC1 should have ?
