Development & Technical Discussion / Re: [Latest Build] FRK 0.10.2

That's because you are trying to compile it the wrong way.

Code: [Select]
git clone franko && cd franko

does it take frk?

I think it is not necessary. because when making changes to the site, who will make changes to the localized versions. they will be abandoned as ever. better to put Google transl module.

in that case someone could just use google chrome to auto translate

Marketing / Video and Audio Series (Reasons to use Franko)
« on: July 24, 2015, 12:16:25 pm »
I'm going to be creating a series of videos and audio to explain why people should use franko instead of fiat.

This is the first audio.

There seems to be a lack of information on how to get folding at home running efficiently and quickly, as well as a general lack of pictures. So here are both! :)

What is folding at home?
Folding at home is a project, set up by Stanford, which allows people to use their idle computing power on both classic processors (CPUs) and Graphics Cards (GPUs). This computing power is used to fold proteins, a process which gives medical and biological researchers more insight into how proteins fold to their usable state, as well as why they 'unfold', leading to a greater understanding of protein structure, how they work in our body, and, most importantly, how to fix what went wrong, from curing Cancer to Huntington's to Parkinsons. If you want a more clear understanding of the actual science behind the folding at home project, tons of great info is available on their site: . For a quick intro video:

This guide focuses on the tech aspects of F@H, and will help you to get your computer(s) folding proteins, and earning you money.

Step 1: Hardware Check
The better your hardware, the faster you can, of course, mine/fold. Many crypto-currency users already have mining rigs, most of which have very powerful GPUs.

While you could fold with low-end hardware, the heat it produces, mixed with the energy it requires, may make it not worth the effort, or may be your excuse to buy that new GPU you've been eying. For benchmarks, we will be assuming we are using Core 17, which we will cover in detail later. I will create another thread where we can work on pooling benchmarks, however here is a quick view of some of the most popular hardware.

Any ATi card from the 5xxx, 6xxx, and 7xxx series should run fine, as should any NVidia 5xx, 6xx, or 7xx cards. Titans currently have some performance issues.

An average Intel i5-2500k can hit somewhere in the ballpark of 5-6000 PPD, an i7-3770 gets somewhere around 7200PPD.

Important Note About Cores:
For optimal performance, your miner should have a core on the CPU for each GPU on your system. If you have three 7970s on one machine, that Sempron 145 will be a bottleneck. For scrypt-mining, I built my rigs with single-core CPUs and 2 7950s each, as well as some rigs with some 7970s jammed into them. One rig with a Sempron 145 Sargas + 2x7970 has times when the CPU usage zooms up to 100%, and the GPUs stop running for 10-20 seconds. It appears that some task that must be completed on the CPU is reached by one of the GPUs, so the machine spends 100% CPU time working on that CPU-specific piece of the folding puzzle. While this is going, both GPUs are starved of the necessary CPU time, and so they go idle. However, in one machine with a 2x7950 and a FX-8350, I can get great performance. It seems that 1/4 of the time (on average) is high-CPU time, so having a core for each GPU and an extra core for running high-CPU-time tasks should eliminate bottlenecking. 3 GPU systems should have a quad-core processor.

Installing The Software:

Scroll down to the button 'Start Folding':

Step through the installer, leaving everything as default until the end, where you uncheck to 'Start Folding At Home'.

Once the program is installed, you will have a short-cut on your desktop, which starts the Folding At Home program. We need to make a slight change before we launch it.

Right-click on the desktop icon, and click on 'Properties'.

The Properties window will come up. We need to change the launch arguments to include:

This allows the client to use the bleeding-edge core_17 core, which is significantly (by a factor of 2x to 10x) faster than the core13-16 mixes, as well as being the core used for all benchmarks above.

Now double-click on the desktop shortcut. Then, find the FAHControl application, usually located here:

You will be asked about folding anonymously, click on "Configure Identity".

This will bring up a window.

Enter your desired username, "229101" for the TeamID, and then click on the blue "Click here to open the Folding@home passkey request..." link. This will bring up a window:

Enter the username you put in the previous window, along with a valid email address that you have access to. You will, soon after, receive a passkey via email. Enter that into the 'passkey' entry on the FAH Client window, and enter it again into the 'confirm' box.

Now, you can finally start folding. The machine *should* automatically detect all GPUs and CPUs. If your system has a small amount of cores (1-2), you may want to right-click on the CPU, and click 'pause':

Note: this will make your CPU stop folding. This is done to conserve CPU power to feed your GPUs on systems with very weak  processors.

Confirming You Are Running Core_17:
To make sure that your GPUs are using Core_17, take a look at:

and make sure that you are clicked on the job(s) that are running on GPUs. The ones on CPUs will say something along the line of "Core: 0xa3". 0x## means a GPU-type Job.

Some jobs take as little as an hour and a half to complete on competent hardware, while some take 8+ hours. From my understanding, CryptoBullion's pool pays out, currently, 8000GLC per day total, divided proportionally among all of the miners. The picture above shows a 780 running, with a good overclock.

Post a comment if you have any questions.

New team The Franko Collective with number 229101 has been founded by frankocollective
(The team page will link to homepage at and link to a logo graphic at

Any client program can contribute to the statistics for this team by putting the number 229101 in the team field in the client

What sort of cart solutions do we need that will help vendors accept frk?

So can I mine other scrypt coins on this and get paid in FRK?

good question, idk.

Economics / Re: future price
« on: July 13, 2015, 03:39:27 pm »
I'm on the rights of network hamster predict rate $1899.99 (+/- $0.01) this year. Is based on real economic research in tu sleep that night. Seriously, if we can overcome that serious realties threshold price and under what conditions? Sorry for my t.g.c.

Its not entirely impossible, I think we would need to see some real world use, more ways to earn, more ways to spend kinda stuff. Referring to the FRK whitepaper, some more proof of tasks.
