Once a month payouts though are a sad joke. That sort of thing makes me wonder how long FDLC will even exist.

I think that for the moment they do the distribution by hand which explains why they switched from daily to weekly to monthly.
But it might go back to shorter period as they are working on a new distribution server.

Not a whole lot of support over at the curecoin forum on their website.  I am trying to mine it with a gridseed orb that I've used for scrypt, and someone is suggesting that I need to set it to sha256 and then the conversation died.  Is there a better place to discuss mining this coin?

Yes it uses the SHA-256 algo, so you mine it just like you would bitcoin. There are a few pools listed on the website here:

Indeed.

Im currently pushing ~1.2 million PPD on my new merge folding name, and ~700k on another name.  Still have a couple more 980s to fire up and a couple cards to repair. This will be a good winter for folding and keeping the house warm. I see some new guys have joined that have a lot more than that. Welcome to the team everyone!

Congratulations guys,

Curecoin team is on third place in the statistics!

Thanks! Its true! Curecoin is now the 3rd most contributed team on the largest research DCN in the world. We are coming up on rank #2 so fast that if we pass them at this difference in speed I am honestly going to feel pretty bad for them, they have done some serious folding for many years!

Congrats to everyone that has every folded with team Curecoin! In a matter of less than 3 years we have hit rank 3. A lot of people on other folding teams thought Curecoin was just going to fade away and they would not have to worry about their titles when we showed up on the scene. To say the least they spent some time eating their words. Its all good though, they are hard working fellow folding teams, they are cool... Team Curecoin is just a little cooler now though  Cheesy

I guess merge folding just turned into the most profitable gpu use since the ETH price explosion is the consensus. I can live with that. It should drive up some research numbers while creating a budget to improve Curecoin currency itself.

Fold for Curecoins and rock science with us, we have cookies and you will get your $$$ curecoins too, and #FKcancer  Grin

A few more updates have been pushed to the curecoin folding pool.

A quick update on profitability since there are no efficient calculators for folding profit on cure / fldc - feel free to make one, Ill give 1000 cure for a good one, 2k for a really good one.

Currently with just 4 cards running 2 of which are the most powerful and liquid cooled drawing 410 watts for the whole system, other machine is using less. I expected to see a lot more after finally hooking up a kill a watt basing my numbers of normal mining and stress testing figures but folding lets the cards run pretty cool. You can overclock a bit but if you OC too much your work unit will get an imperfection and the results become worthless and no credit is awarded.

So 4 cards earned 62 curecoins + FLDC?(not sure how much yet.. just going to save it up as a nice bonus for now). 62 cure @ 6.5 cents = 4.03 USD . At the national average of 12c / kwh the 16.8 kwh I used costs 2.01. So roughly double the cost of electric without even counting the FLDC that has also recently went up in price a substantial amount.

My numbers should be pretty accurate there I am just making a quick post for reference for anyone who is thinking about folding for cure and/or FLDC

Regarding the pools at the Curecoin website:

CryptoPools   
United Miners   
MinePit   
iSpace   

Can someone validate that these pools are all up and working?  I've had some luck at CryptoPools, but not able to stay connected, which is probably on my side.
But these other three seem like they are having problems just being online: United Miners, MinePit, iSpace.  One I get a google warning about data not being private. 
Are there other pools mining this coin?

Looks like all of the PoW blocks are coming from CryptoPools and 1 solo miner...so I guess the other 3 are defunct.

Would be nice to have a good pool pick this up.  Very limited customer support at Cryptopools and I can't stay connected to it.

Pool is working fine.  If you need support with your particular miner, go to #cryptopools on IRC.  Email is too slow.

This youtube blogger Barnacules Nerdgasm generated an insane amount of PPD with one video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-6oyuYIA6A8

Like my comment on his video so we can spread curecoin's word. He may end up deleting my post but, whatever, worth a try. Screenshot: http://puu.sh/rrWCg/9f71e11028.png

Thanks.  I appreciate all your patience.  I realize I had a lot of basic questions.  It's been working great for me in the last 18 hours.  I believe
I had to just let the miner run, and not worry that the online interface was showing my miner being offline when it wasn't.  Seems like the
online interface has to do some kind of cycling which gives that impression.

Few days ago I changed my FAH user name of xxxxx_FLDC _....... I see that most have a username xxxxxx_ALL_ ........
What (how much) gives more "ALL"? Everything that applies to "FLDC" (eg Tokenly Pockets) applies to "ALL"?

Thanks  Smiley

Foldingcoin makes sometimes partnership with other tokens that you can earn at the same time as FLDC via merge folding. For the moment it is quite in standby because of the manual distribution but I guess that as soon as the new distribution server will be ready it will start again.

So you set _ALL_ to say you want all the tokens and _FLDC_ if you only want FLDC.

At the national average of 12c / kwh the 16.8 kwh I used costs 2.01. So roughly double the cost of electric without even counting the FLDC that has also recently went up in price a substantial amount.

Indeed, if you take into account that you also get about 4 USD for FLDC via merge folding that means you get about 6 USD for 2 USD of electricity!
This is a 300% yield!


A quick update on profitability since there are no efficient calculators for folding profit on cure / fldc - feel free to make one, Ill give 1000 cure for a good one, 2k for a really good one.

Awesome! You could actually offer 3k for a really good calculator taking into account all the tokens that can be earned via the _ALL_ keyword of merge folding and explaining in a clear way on the same page (below the calculator) the exact minimum required steps to start CURE/_ALL_ merge folding. Maybe you can contact FLDC team and ask them to give some FLDC in addition to the 3k CURE as this calculator is going to be a little bit more tricky to develop since the partnerships between FLDC and other tokens change with time so the calculator should ideally be able to self-adapt or should give to the FLDC team the possibility to parametrize the _ALL_ part (i.e. to add/remove tokens and the URLs where their value can be fetched) every time their partnerships change.
 
Such a calculator will bring miners to folding like crazy!

I currently have 3 rigs on FAH, pretty close to identical.
2 NVidia 1070 folding, 1 old HD7750 doing Moowrappper along with the A10's GPU unit.

 Nope, shouldn't be hard to figure out who I am on Team Curecoin - just check the top 10 on "24 hours".

 9-)

 They net about .6 cents/watt of system use - could do better if I optimised them more but I have a VERY longstanding commitment to the distributed.net project.
 This works out to a fair bit more than a 300% profit vs electric useage at my current power cost JUST on Curecoin (I've not seen if my hopefully fixed FDLC setup will get me more).



 BUT!

 Most folks pay quite a bit more for electric than I do here in Central WA, and the income / $ invested isn't as good as a optimised ETH or XMR rig can do right now.

If merge folding doubles your curecoin income I guess it really does better than ETH or XMR... (can't wait the merge folding calculator)

And you have to take into account that F@H research might later save your life or the life of your beloved or kids, while the other cryptos just contribute to global warming with all the GWh spent on crunching meaningless numbers for PoW...

So all in all, folding gives you by far the best return on investment!  Smiley
