I'm back from the investigation of the foldingcoin.
1: It's no "coin" it's a token without any exchange.
2: Only online strorage.
3: No solid dev team.
4: No interest by folders, I was 90% of the folding power.
5: All tokens in one place distributed once a week.

GO CureCoin!
//Aboy68

Please make curecoin 2.0 a distributed solid coin, we will only have one chance to fix mayor issues miners did not like.
Please add features pure buyers would like to have!
Thats the plan! Any other features you want to suggest for other buyers?

Fold Proteins, earn cryptos! CureCoin.

I bought into Curecoin when it was .00190000 BTC. I'm still holding, but its current value is 3.94% of the purchase price. Is Curecoin going to be completely abandoned for Curecoin 2, or whatever it is to be called? It feels like I've ridden this one pretty much to the bottom.

Sorry you bought high! Nope, all Curecoin 1.0 coins will transfer to Curecoin 2.0, though there may be a coin conversion step due to the major protocol changes. Smiley

Interesting developments!  Regarding the certificates (Curecoin 2), does this mean there will be some collaboration with the F@H devs?  I certainly hope that assuming there is some sort of quasi agreement there will be more interest in Curecoin.

As the system is imagined right now, there will have to be collaboration, in order for them to sign the certificates. However, if they are either not available or not ready for the signing at the beginning of the new coinbase, we can temporarily sign the certificates ourselves, while still protecting both ourselves and the folders by never actually touching the coins. By design, validation of a certificate as block-solving can only happen first on the side of the folder. Here's the general flow, for which I *hope* to put up a blog post explaining in greater detail in the next few days, but as the result of travel may be difficult:

-> User sends request to Stanford, giving them their curecoin address, filling an optional 'extra' field, putting in a secret hash of a fixed-length 'secret' key, and agreeing on a way of getting the certificates back (automatic negotiation, server might give client a URL the certificate will be available at upon completion, for example)
-> User receives a workunit associated with this information
-> User completes workunit, submits it back to University
-> University validates certificate
-> University signs certificate using their publicly-known signature
-> University makes certificate available to user by previously-negotiated method
-> User acquires certificate, tries entire nonce range (points awarded) to find a block, hashing together the certificate concatenated with the secret key (for which the hash is stored in the certificate)
-> If block-solving end hash is found, they can now submit it to the network.

As a result of the above method, there is no way for the university to tell whether a certificate they sign will solve or not solve a block, therefore they would be unable to selectively award certain users with better/worse certificates.

Of course, the best method is tons of collaboration with the F@H devs, but this might not be possible at the beginning of the new course.

Im not any specialist on this subject, but....
1: A debit card, Where VISA/MC are accepted. Using Curecoin...
2: secret transactions.
3: Quick transactions.
4: Use your cell phone to buy with using curecoin.

Hello !

I was usually receiving about 180 curecoins per day, but today... only 69, and my folding point per day is stable. On the cryptobullion reward listing, I notice that there are many strange 9.81076500 curecoin rewards for two users.

What happened ?

Hmm, what's your folding@home username so I can take a look at the backend?

Same here. My F@H username - artoar_home:

July 26: Your 24 Hour Folding Points - 75,590; Current Payout Est. - 11.532750 CURE

July 27: Your 24 Hour Folding Points - 56,287; Current Payout Est. - 3.8585650 CURE (??)

July 28: Your 24 Hour Folding Points - 56,061; Current Payout Est. - 9.264785 CURE

I'm not complaining, I do not want compensation. Just to see where the problem is  Smiley

Hi,

I am currently writing an article about Curecoin for Thecoinfront.com and Coinproz.com.  If anyone has anything they would like to say about Curecoin from the community, please add it here:



For the record, I have been doing articles on the more philanthropic ventures in cryptocurrency as of late, and Curecoin is a project everyone feels should be promoted.

Looking at the backend for the current stats (paying out soon), I'm seeing you with 78811 points, while the team got 50482476 points. That would be 11.6899 coins, could you tell me what your next payout is, or what your payout CUR address is? Thanks!

Thanks for the press exposure! Most of what I would say about Curecoin as it exists currently would be copy+paste about the stats and purpose of Curecoin from OP, but to keep from decaying into my frequent tangents, I'd summarize the project as "creating incentive for behavior benefiting humanity; providing a valuable use of computing power for groundbreaking medical and scientific research."

Great!  That is pretty much what I wrote.  I will go ahead and post the draft here, and update the thread when it actually goes live:

Curecoin: Curing Cancer With Crowd Computing

In an emerging alternative cryptocurrency market flooded with fear, uncertainty, and doubt, one coin has risen above the rest.  Curecoin has established itself as a cryptocurrency that is solving real world problems, and also bringing about a new level of transparency to the crypto community.  With representatives recently attending The North American Bitcoin Conference in Chicago, part of the Curecoin development team showed off their project to the public.  The team took careful care to demonstrate exactly how Curecoin worked, as well as demonstrating the overall transparency of the project.  

The project was launched on May 10, 2014 after over 6 months of development.  The Curecoin team has partnered with Stanford University to create the first cryptocurrency to legitimately use crowd-computing power for more than network security.  While it is possible to use computing power to secure the Curecoin network (ASIC), GPU/CPU power can go directly towards “protein folding”.  When you donate your computing power to fold proteins, you are solving equations to help cure different cancers, diabetes, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s.

As the Curecoin team has traveled around the world to build their community, they have risen to the top of the “Fold At Home” team list, currently coming it at number ten.  Currently the Curecoin team is working on Ocore, which is a system to allow users to watch the teams fold the proteins in real time to bring an even higher level of transparency to the process.  They already have an app in the Google Play store  which lets you get in contact with them directly.  

In addition, Curecoin 2.0 will be developed to accommodate changes in computing technology, after which Curecoin 1.0 will be absorbed into the new system.  The team has talked of merchant integration and smart contracts for their next wave of development, but nothing has been set in stone.  If you are interested in contributing your computing power to cure diseases, you can go to the Curecoin home page and start curing diseases from your home computer today.


Edit: I just took out the html hyperlinks, but if anything needs to be changed there is still time!

Thanks!

Looks great! The only thing I'd modify is removing the part of partnering with Stanford, simply because there's no official partnership at the moment. Also, Ocore is a Stanford development Smiley

You beat me on those two points.

Additionally I think the following statement should also be adopted: "as a cryptocurrency that is solving real world problems, "
CC is not solving the problem, that's still the scientists and the software they provide. But agree that it SUPPORT solving those problems by attracting a number of new folder/donors.

"Fold At Home" team list ;  better "Folding At Home" team list

The project was launched on May 10, 2014 after over 6 months of development.  The Curecoin team has partnered with Stanford University to create the first cryptocurrency to legitimately use crowd-computing power for more than network security.  While it is possible to use computing power to secure the Curecoin network (ASIC), GPU/CPU power can go directly towards “protein folding”.  When you donate your computing power to fold proteins, you are solving equations to help cure different cancers, diabetes, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s.

As the Curecoin team has traveled around the world to build their community, they have risen to the top of the “Fold At Home” team list, currently coming it at number ten.  Currently the Curecoin team is working on Ocore, which is a system to allow users to watch the teams fold the proteins in real time to bring an even higher level of transparency to the process.  They already have an app in the Google Play store  which lets you get in contact with them directly.  

In addition, Curecoin 2.0 will be developed to accommodate changes in computing technology, after which Curecoin 1.0 will be absorbed into the new system.  The team has talked of merchant integration and smart contracts for their next wave of development, but nothing has been set in stone.  If you are interested in contributing your computing power to cure diseases, you can go to the Curecoin home page and start curing diseases from your home computer today.


Edit: I just took out the html hyperlinks, but if anything needs to be changed there is still time!

Thanks!

Looks great! The only thing I'd modify is removing the part of partnering with Stanford, simply because there's no official partnership at the moment. Also, Ocore is a Stanford development Smiley

I will say "unofficially partnered" and give credit to stanford for Ocore. 

Thanks!

Thanks! Christian's point about wording on solving vs supporting is also valid, perhaps rephrase 'solving' to 'supporting researchers in a quest to solve' or something to that effect?

Fold Proteins, earn cryptos! CureCoin.

Hi,

I am currently writing an article about Curecoin for Thecoinfront.com and Coinproz.com.  If anyone has anything they would like to say about Curecoin from the community, please add it here:



For the record, I have been doing articles on the more philanthropic ventures in cryptocurrency as of late, and Curecoin is a project everyone feels should be promoted.

Thanks for the press exposure! Most of what I would say about Curecoin as it exists currently would be copy+paste about the stats and purpose of Curecoin from OP, but to keep from decaying into my frequent tangents, I'd summarize the project as "creating incentive for behavior benefiting humanity; providing a valuable use of computing power for groundbreaking medical and scientific research."

Great!  That is pretty much what I wrote.  I will go ahead and post the draft here, and update the thread when it actually goes live:

"'supporting researchers in a quest to solve'" sound a good compromise and keeps the word "solving" in the text

Well, as I had met Axel and Curtis in Chicago, they had informed me that they were involved in solving one problem with a specific protein, so that theoretical threshold has been passed already.  Smiley  

It is not deceptive language as far as I'm concerned.

Hello.

Can someone confirm how many CURECOINS do you get per day with 100k ppd.
Tnx.
