Network security from hashing is good. Making money is great. Curing Cancer, Alzheimer's, Huntington's, preventing viruses, and designing next-level pharmaceuticals is awesome. What if we could put these together, to build a coin secured and run by crypto, mined with SHA256, and supported by cancer-curing research?

Announcing Curecoin!

What benefits does it provide?
Most currencies are either in the CPU/GPU stage, or in the ASIC stage. Curecoin can be earned with both. Folders use high-end GPUs and CPUs to fold proteins, earning a proportional amount of coins set-aside for their contributions. Miners mine with SHA256 ASICs as usual, securing the blockchain for the Curecoin network. Whether you are heavily-invested in ASIC equipment or still have GPUs and CPUs, you can participate. Due to the nature of folding (diverse, constantly changing, not easily predictable), GPUs and CPUs will both always be relevant, so an investment in consumer hardware isn't wasted.

How is it different?

Curecoin allows owners of both ASIC and GPU/CPU hardware to earn. Curecoin puts ASICs to work at what they are good at--securing a blockchain, while it puts GPUs and CPUs to work with work items that can only be done on them--protein folding. While still having a secure blockchain, it supports, and thus is supported by, scientific research. While it isn't technically 'backed' by scientific research (there's no central authority you can visit to trade coins for scientific research) the coin has intrinsic value as both a currency and as a system of purchasing a tradeable representation of medical research. Similar to the idea of carbon offsets, someone with money can buy some Curecoins which represent a proportional amount of scientific/medicinal research, while someone with tech know-how can also contribute to the folding effort, doing the hands-on work, and gain profit. The value imbued into each unit of the currency from the folding network it represents would add additional traction and inertia to the coin's trading value. As time goes on and the amount of folding done for the network increases, the amount of research that each coin represents grows.

How does the network maintain balance?

Since the daily total from network output from both mining and folding are locked at 20:80, an increase in miners will subsequently raise the scarcity of the currency (per capita), resulting in folding becoming even more profitable and in-demand, encouraging additional folding power. Vice-versa, an increase in folding power will likewise indirectly cause a delayed increase in the network security. Pegging the reward of each type of work to a constant value allows the change to hit a brick wall in changing the currency distribution, which causes other parts of the equation to expand--mining/network security, and folding/coin value. This value in medical research and network security both act to influence the USD/CUR trading value. As the folding and hashing efforts grow, the currency becomes more scarce per capita, creating a general increasing trend of monetary value. Just like any other crypto, Curecoin is a currency, but in this case, one that has more adding to its value than cryptographic security.

Is Curecoin limited to only protein-folding?

No! As the network evolves, additional scientific computing projects can be easily added, in which case the folding reward would become a scientific-computation reward, and would be split fairly between various projects (including CPU-only ones!), and could be done so in either a way to encourage people to balance the projects, or in such a way that people can do whatever project they wish, and receive the same or very similar profits.

What are the details?

Mining: 13 coins per block (start)
1 block per 10 minutes
Block-halving every 4 years

Folding: 7488 per day (average of 52 per block) (start)
Reward-halving every 4 years
Rewards processed on a daily basis, based on points earned

PoS mintage model also included.

How does this benefit someone with GPU/CPU power?

Rather than mining alt currencies with a (in comparison to ASIC and FPGA equipment) very inefficient hash-generator which uses large amounts of electricity, you can do protein folding (which uses less electricity), earn great returns, contribute to a variety of great computational scientific research, and decrease the wear-and-tear on your precious hardware. Indirectly, you also cause increases in ASIC mining power through network rebalancing. Additionally, NVidia cards are great at folding!    

How does this benefit someone with ASIC power?

As someone with ASIC mining power, you can help increase the network security of Curecoin, earn good money from your work (through the proof-of-work block reward of Curecoin), and indirectly support folding efforts through network rebalancing.

How does this benefit an investor or speculator?
If you are going to invest in a crypto, Curecoin is a great choice, as it has more intrinsic value than any other alternate currency based on its pseudo-backing (support) from computational scientific research, and allows you to profit by supporting life-saving computational research. Due to Curecoin's mission, Curecoin will grow quickly, and will likely attract positive media attention.

How is the currency divided up?



Curecoins go to three main areas: Folders, Miners, and Developers. The folders get 76% of the total coins (80% of the coins distributed per day). SHA256 miners get 19% of the total coins (20% of the coins distributed per day). 2% of the total funds are distributed to people who donated to project development. The other 3% is dedicated to Curecoin developers, and will be used for paying for development costs (such as hiring professional programmers, paying for infrastructure, etc.), and for giving back to the community (folding hardware giveaways, faucets, covering 0% mining pools, etc.).

We will have a team of at least 3 people standing by for tech support if you need help setting up folding@home or Curecoin.

Current folding support members include experienced folders including Vorksholk, Yeltz, and myself, CygnusXI.

I agree that a chinese logo on the Hermes caducée ( not sure if it's the same name in english ) should not have chinese on it

sudo apt-get install htop miniupnpc unzip screen
mkdir curecoin
cd curecoin
wget 1.curecoinmirror.com/curecoin_source.zip
unzip curecoin_source.zip
cd src
make -f makefile.unix USE_UPNP=-
cp curecoind /bin/curecoind

Then for setup:

Code:
mkdir ~/.curecoin
echo 'rpcuser=username
rpcpassword=password
addnode=108.61.216.200
addnode=108.61.157.50

addnode=79.133.47.203
addnode=108.61.208.54
addnode=191.96.4.186
addnode=108.61.201.68
addnode=154.127.61.137
addnode=108.61.212.157' > ~/.curecoin/curecoin.conf
screen
curecoind
(Change the username and password, either before you paste this in, or after by using nano)!

then just search for Gridcoin that did this already last year and mine that Wink

imitation is the sincerest form of.. cashing out scam coins to BTC to Fiat to pretend you support crypto lol
when in reality.. you just support fiat Wink

ok thanks i looked and didn't see where the info was in the OP's comment.
I didn't say that it WAS one just that if it was... lol

i think we should start dishing out bans for making any more scrypt clones.. post one then the forum posts your forum history and bans you lol
including ALL the other ip address's and forum accounts these so called new dev's have..

staff here have a big advantage in Crypto i think.. it would be nice to see the database and be able to get enough info
so that you could track down what shell account belonged to what known super cloner.. must be nice i wish i had that trading advantage Sad
and if i ask they 90% ignore you or attack you etc.. or on rare occasions just lie through their teeth..

oh Crypto.. your so funny lol
