1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / pluMmet- Quark logo contest entry on: January 21, 2014, 03:33:56 AM

For the quark logo contest we have been asked to start a thread that explains how we arrived at our design decision so here goes Smiley

Of course the first thing I did was research what exactly a quark was and learned that there are six types of quarks, known as flavors: up, down, strange, charm, bottom, and top.  Up, down, strange being the standard 3.

Searching thru images of these I came up with these images as a good reference point

The Reuleaux triangle shape seemed to be very much part of the quark identification along with the already popular visualization of quark structure of proton which is at the center of the current logo.

I made a rough out image that incorporated these ideas.

After that I looked into how to add the colors associated with quarks which I put onto a mock up t-shirt
I wanted the image to have a simplicity that scaled well when made small and still distinguishable as a smartphone icon.

The image carries the 3 basic quark colors in a concise way.

I also decided to try a colorization that conveyed all 6 quark component colors

and finally I have a physical coin representation that I did.

So I'm not sure if any of these ideas will be used by the quark programmers but I am very happy with what I came up with as a possible re-branded logo.

What is going on with Quarkcoin?

The most promising of the AltCoins IMHO is getting outright lies put out into the www and the only question is why?

Why are people taking the time to utter so many lies about it?

These people claim to have researched Quark and then report how awful it is.

The problem is that their “Facts” that they list as to why it's so awful are all incorrect. These “facts” they are reporting include:

Quark is not p2p, there is no Quark pool mining, there is no Quark blochchain, Quark creates 140 Million (plus) new coins per year and Quark is about 1 cent usd per Quark (when that was told it was over 20 cents usd.)

They are also disparaging people who promote it with half/observations like "just look at their faces." Wow...Just wow!

So how can these people with such followings based on their tireless research be so wrong?

The information is so easy to come by I can only think they are outright lying for what reason I don't know?

A couple of months ago .001 transaction fee seemed fine... Now it seems like robbery.
If I fiddle with iit I can get it to .0005 but still way large... Wtf

It started as "a fraction of a Penney" now its much much more.

I know this is not exactly on topic for this forum but I know lots of you fellows are electronics enthusiasts.

What type of connector is that? I'm looking for one that is a 10 pin if possible but 5 of these if I can just get the connectors official name.

My problem is that I need to break out this connector and it does not fit into a bread board because the 10 by 10 pins are off set:

So I need to figure out how to use it.
