So obliviously the beta doesn't work as intended due to sync issues, but then why do we hear nothing for month/s?  I don't think its too much to ask for an update once a month?!???

1. They are incompetent
2. They are thief
3. They releasing something soon

Take your pick but I'm betting on number 1!


I'd pick number 1 too... just hope it's not number 2.

not so harsh

1. could be also "they are slow"

and slow could have reasons like
small team
aim high (very complicated and new codebase)
have a real life beside crypto
changed major parts of design which need restart in a early stage

will be good if the dev. team at least reply our posts... and community to agree about a change and the POS parameters
I can help with testing the POS 3 forking


something like:

POS 3.0, no POW
block time 60 seconds
POS reward static 0.25 CURE (or other amount) + foundation reward to dev's wallet for Folding distribution: 5 CURE, halve every 4 years (to make 7488 CURE daily).
and then dev. can send the current premine to a burning address



this is the right mindset

that doesnt mean dead for CC2

but it mean they have a half or even a full year more time
while cc itself runs in a much better shape

exactly, it means an up-to-date fast CC1 and more trust-able distribution
still no word from the dev. team about this suggestion

of course no need to rush, but need to discuss and decide, and get more ideas

not hashing, folding and curing (check FLDC merged-folding! reuse good GPUs)

Has it been 100% proven that POS 3.0 without POW is as secure as POS + POW???

i guess it wasn't
what about proof that POW+POS is secure as POW ?
we can make it POW+POS. but a faster chain
or ask exchanges to allow deposits with 1 confimation ? because curecoin is sometimes slow chain than bitcoin's

Huh

Anyway, in my opinion the main problem with CC2 is the need for certification authorities.
The great revolution and success of Blockchain technology (Bitcoin...) is that you don't need to trust a person, a company, an organization or an administration. You just need to trust the algorithm. This lack of third party ranks #1-#3 on many lists about Blockchain advantages.

Putting in place certification authorities (to remove POW) for CC2 goes against one of the main goals of Blockchain technology...

I agree with you they haven't found anything to remove the problem of centralisation. However, I believe that if they had shown some consistency in their handling of the launch etc. people would have support them because it's about charity.

Unfortunately they have failed to reassure investors and supporters... I'll keep my coins because it is too late to sell but I can't say I'm not disappointed in their behaviour.

Another failure in the long list of crypto bust. I just hope it was not an organised scam like soooo many other out there...

If it would just have been a scam they wouldn't have bothered coding all the Quantum Computing Resistant stuff for CC2.0...

While I agree they should keep us updated from time to time, it's sad people are so quick at insulting them  Sad

I also keep my coins. In the worst case I've just helped F@H and in the best case (they release a decentralized quantum resistant version of the coin that will get popular) well... we'll see  Cheesy

First I'm not insulting anyone I'm merely underlying my worries... Incompetent means "not having or showing the necessary skills to do something successfully." it's not an insult, for now it is a fact! Let's hope it will change.

Second "quick" you must be a joking, right? If you had been following this project you would know that Curecoin 2.0 was supposed to come out over a year and an half ago.

If they have problems they should tell us about it, be transparent... but if they don't say anything and just come out every 5 months saying "hey btw we have a great idea we making a new coin on top of CC 2.0" with no real explanation then I'm starting to be very suspicious. They can't make CC 2.0 but they making another coin on top of it... come on??

It is not the first time I'm seeing this kind of behaviour in the bitcoin world... In general it end up with people losing their time and money!

I will be more than happy to be proven wrong but for now I'm very worried and  even more sadden because I believe in the idea of using mining for more than just confirming transactions.

Hello,

I just found this thread and got a few questions concerning the coin and folding in general.

I was active in foldit i think 4 years ago. How is the actual case right know if a user finds/creates a useful protein? who got the patent or the rights?

Is there a major advantage folding in the Curecoin group despite obtaining coins ?

And how is the Blockchain are the Miners relevant for the Project of fold it? Since the hash can´t be used directly to help folding right?

thanks for help Wink

From F@H website:
We assisted Chris Garcia’s lab with their work with Interleukin 2 (IL-2), a protein which assists the immune system in fighting pathogens and cancer tumors. While injecting a patient with more IL-2 has been an effective cancer treatment, naturally occuring IL-2 has very serious side effects. We helped the Garcia lab to discover a form of IR-2 that was more “floppy”, which greatly increased its cancer-fighting potency. This means that it’s possible to admister theurapedic doses of it without causing the side effects. Stanford has applied for a patent, and several major pharmaceutical companies approached the Garcia lab about this discovery.

So I think it's Stanford who gets the patent. But we folders can be proud we helped for that!

You can fold in any existing team or even create your own team. Folding in CC team gives you coins besides F@H points.

Quote
And how is the Blockchain are the Miners relevant for the Project of fold it? Since the hash can´t be used directly to help folding right?

People can participate to CC 1.0 either folding with their CPU/GPU or securing the blockchain hashing (GPU/ASIC). Hashing does not directly help folding, it only secures the coin.
To save electric power, future CC 2.0 is supposed to remove the mining part using certification authorities but not eveybody (including me) is happy with that.

Thank you for your reply! I got in mind that a few years ago, the folder for the relevant protein was considered in the ownership.
That was like an extra motivation.
So in general the idea of the coin is to attract more people into folding?

Well, gridcoin is also a philanthropic cryptocurrency, with a protein folding project that claims to be decentralized.. which seems to be a large feature and concern that curecoin is missing don't you think? I'm curious to hear curecoin members' side of story on that.. I don't wanna do the research cuz I assume you guys already have.

are you sure its decentralized ? they don't use distribution wallet by dev ? how ?
