#5 in 5 Months!
It's been 5 months since CureCoin launched to the public, and we've just reached #5 in the all-time points standings for Folding@Home. Okay, so there were a few points from early testers so we're sort of fudging the "5 months" a little - but let us have our moment.
It's been a great run, but even more exciting is that this represents only the beginning for CureCoin. Don't take my word for it, though - let's look at some data about our Folding Exploits.

Donate CureCoin to fund an Endometriosis Pilot Study on the Folding @ Home Network
Recent data indicates that over 170 million women of reproductive age world-wide suffer debilitating pain and infertility from Endometriosis. "Endo" is linked to protein mis-folding, however there is no scientific consensus on its root cause. Theories include stem cells, genetics, and immunological factors. Women whose mothers suffered from "Endo" are up to 7 times more likely to exhibit symptoms themselves.
This fund is the first of it’s kind, attempting to showcase the potential of CureCoin to finance new research. Beginning a new study on F@H requires more than just computational power. Pande Labs would need manpower on the back-end to analyze the computational results - then conduct new experiments based on that analysis.
Note: if significant funds are not collected by 07.31.2015, as determined by discussion
with Pande Group, the collected coins will be rolled into the general Folding @ Home Fund.

The FoldingCoin Inc. team and the Curecoin team have recently had a conference call to discuss each of the projects. Though the infrastructure and protocols used for each coin differ, FoldingCoin Inc. and Curecoin are both dedicated to attracting more folders and miners into the F@H project.
Both teams openly shared different ideas of how to approach gaining more adoption to Folding@home and the various projects and features each are working on. The main goal here is to stop wasting energy on Altcoins that use energy for creating copycat Bitcoin blockchains.
Curecoin has made the decision to allow for longer usernames on their team. This will allow FLDC participants to earn CURE alongside of FLDC and the other Merged Folding tokens on the FoldingCoin Inc. platform. Both teams decided that this would be a great option for the Folders looking to acquire both, as our teams are here for you the Folder and the Folding@home network as a whole. Due to the nature of the way FLDC and CURE are distributed, you cannot earn CURE if you are on any team but the Curecoin FAH team 224497.
FoldingCoin Inc. will continue to develop Bitcoin 2.0 technology and smart assets to be applied to Folding@home and Curecoin will continue to develop making strides in advancing independent blockchain technology to be applied to Folding@home. FoldingCoin Inc. and Curecoin look forward to continuing a positive relationship sharing our ideas and accomplishments along the way with each other in hopes that it will attract further miners to become Folders.
