Many have requested that CureCoin start posting more information about the type of computational work we generate. The hope is to keep this an ongoing series of informational posts:

An example of a new, unique research project the CureCoin Folding@home team members participate in relates to a disease called Phenylketonuria which cause irreversible brain damage in infancy. Projects p13717-19 simulate the PAH enzyme in an effort to find the potential causes of mutation. The results of the study could help uncover lead drug compounds to prevent, or help manage the disorder. Each PAH enzyme (or protein) contains over 30,000 atoms which have to be simulated folding using MANY different trajectories - that's why protein folding is so computationally intense - there is no "god formula", however with the help of deep learning and AI, the simulations are becoming more optimized.

This simulation runs on commercial CPU hardware (AMD or Intel / PC or Mac), others run on GPU hardware (nVidia or AMD / PC only) available in most home computers. They can also be run on commercial HPC hardware. The only ASIC available to run protein folding GROMACS molecular dynamic (MD) simulations is currently the ANTON supercomputer. Incidentally, there are over 100,000 known types of proteins in the human body - we only fully understand the folding behavior and functionality of less than 1% of those. Then there are all the unique proteins occurring in all life that are only beginning to be studied. EVERYTHING LIVING is made out of proteins.


Further reading about all the diseases studied by the Folding@home project (including cancer, Alzheimer's and infectious diseases) can be found at this Stanford link. At the very least, the open source results set the bar higher for future studies. Stanford's Folding@home papers are frequently cited in follow-on works conducted by other Universities, Institutes and drug companies. Joining us is easy - just use your Google Chrome browser to fold proteins.)

None of that has anything to do with curecoin.  Undecided

If you have to ask why, you wouldn`t understand my answer.

A new paper from our lab has just been published! We looked at how the brain works at atomic resolution – well, not the whole brain yet, unfortunately, but one…

How's that? It's an example of a Work Unit one might get while folding proteins to earn CURE. This research is the main reason for CureCoin's existence, yes? Work units, although randomly assigned, may effect how folders chose to tune their client's "Cause Preference", or even to add back CPU slots which they previously shut down in an effort to maximize their GPU's points output (as one example).

Since the Poloniex announcement, several members of the community complained that traders on bitcointalk don't really understand how CureCoin is earned, what assistance to disease and drug research our team provides, OR the potential of the network effect crypto can have on that research. We've read many erroneous posts in the Poloniex troll box - individuals making wild assumptions about diseases covered, or how the currency is earned. Most members of the Bitcoin Forum have never visited CureCoin's LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, reddit or G+ social media pages, and rely solely on bitcointalk for their information about CURE. Many also assume CureCoin's goals are only philanthropic in nature - that's why we created a separate entity called the "CureCoin Project" to process donations. This was to distinguish the currency and CureCoin's Cloud Folding business from any charitable activities.

Let the community decide - maybe nobody cares about new research projects unless it's in the context of exchange rates, mining algorithms, or the latest insider gossip. Perhaps an occasional link to social media posts from here will suffice.

Thoughts?

Because (other than bribing people to be on the CureCoin team) CureCoin is an altruistically-based 3rd party that has no direct impact on any specific project. While CureCoin does help bring some people to folding, the coin itself has nothing to do with folding, the folding software, or the projects that get worked on.


... It's an example of a Work Unit one might get while folding proteins to earn CURE....
If you get assigned a WU from PRCG w,x,y,z, you would get assigned the exact same WU from PRCG w,x,y,z if you were on team 1, team 999999999999999999, or whatever team in between.

CURE is a "payment" given only to members of the CureCoin team, and not to the thousands of other participants, doing the exact same work, on hundreds of other teams

If you have to ask why, you wouldn`t understand my answer.

I made an account here because I can't stand the hate on curecoin.

As a former computational biologist the work CureCoin is doing is absolutely stellar in bringing awareness to this issue. They are not a  directly affiliated with Stanford, of course! They never pretend to be. What they do is incentivize people to further donate resources to help researchers study proteins - something we know very very little about.

I can tell you straight up I was in one of the most well-funded labs in the country and we had our own power substation. No way any smaller lab could afford to do this. What F@H is doing is solving that problem. What CURE is doing is helping incentivize people to donate their time.

This is an alt coin with its own development team and framework in place, secondly they seem to be innovating to make a quantum-resistant block chain. Now I know little about this space, but CURE and FLDC are what got me into crypto, so I apologize if I'm butchering here, but that sounds pretty incredible to me.

And frankly, I love these research updates because it helps me know I'm making a difference and is important to the "miners" of this coin. I care knowing that I'm helping democratize this research and I want to know the devs are listening to the research community.

It's not "bribing" its creating a mechanism to reward people. Maybe they could change their method for allocating coins to something similar of FLDC, although without counterparty, but I still care about their research updates.

Curecoin Dev people - a lot of people appreciate what you're doing and, being on the other side of research, I know how important it is to incentivize people to do this

So it's time to remove this from first post:

And maybe need to replace this image from site to something without poloniex:

The prices in nvidia store are quite linear:
1080 Ti $700 1100k PPD . 250W
1080 .. $550 . 850k PPD . 180W
1070 .. $400 . 600k PPD . 150W
1060 .. $300 . 350k PPD . 120W
So for each $150 more you get 250k PPD more.

This week I plan to buy one 1080Ti to replace all my old 7950s (weather starts to be hot) and I have to choose between Asus, MSI, EVGA, Zotac, Gigabyte.

Did anyone have problems with 1080Ti of any of these brands?

Also does the brand matter or should I simply choose the one with lowest price for the highest GPU frequency?

Thanks!

I bought Zotac GeForce GTX 1080Ti AMP! Edition 11 GB OC Enthusiast because it lowest price for the highest GPU frequency in non reference design. Can't give you PPD or noise results because she in shipment status now.

 I have not used a 1080 TI.

 With that said, I'm quite happy with my Gigabyte 1070s, the Gigabyte 1080 I bought last week, and am reasonably content with my EVGA 1070s.

 Also, I don't buy the numbers on that table - I was commonly seeing more than 600k on my single-card 1070 rigs (thought they were all Gigabyte cards with a fairly high factory OC) and am NOT seeing 800k but more like 750k out of my Gigabyte 1080 (which replaced a Gigabyte 1070 in one of those single-card rigs).

 In terms of raw card stats it makes sense - both cards are probably maxing out the "fast return bonus" and the 1080 has 1/3d more CUDA cores than the 1070 it replaced but the memory is only 20% faster on raw transfer rate and has higher latency.

 1080Ti is a LOT more cores though, and I think they managed to clock it a bit higher yet.

Great to see gridcoin doing so well.

Thank god one of these projects took off eventually.

Curecoin should have been way ahead I mean they had years head-start.

Have a few of these. The clock rate maxes at the same freq as my 1070's, and even a tad lower.


This week I plan to buy one 1080Ti to replace all my old 7950s (weather starts to be hot) and I have to choose between Asus, MSI, EVGA, Zotac, Gigabyte.

Thanks!

If you are only buying one, many of the choices are good. I'd personally stay away from a company with the letter Z.

However if you want to use multiple 1080 Ti's and/or engineer your heat flow, I think the Asus Turbo is a fine choice. All exhaust exits the head of the card (the back of the computer for most configurations) instead of being split and some going back into the case. This can produce noticebly better results, as Nvidia out of necessity progressivly scales down the MHZ the hotter things get.

But again for many case layouts, and a single card, many of the 1080 Ti cards will bring great results. I hear good things about MSI as a company, too.

Could you please tell me more?

I just ordered one Zotac 1080Ti AMP Edition (1569/1683MHz) which seemed to have the best performance/price ratio among "in stock" cards.

Should I send it back without opening it even if it looks like that have improved the cooling system wrt the 1080?
