It seems fair to assume that changing circumstances can result in
changing answers to questions. Anyone should be forgiven for asking
the same question when there is evidence that consensus has changed.
Accordingly, I do expect that the cryptocurrency cash-out instructions
question will arise again, probably in years or decades not months. I
remain in favor of converting to foldingcoin before cashing out in
fiat currency if and only if foldingcoin hasn't been corrupting the
validity of the Folding@Home results.
