1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Bounties (Altcoins) / [QTUM][EVENT][FUN] Full Node Incentive Program 822 Prizes. on: June 06, 2019, 08:29:05 PM




Qtum Full Node Incentive Program — Round 2 Tutorial







TLDR: Download the Qtum wallet, leave it open, you might win free Qtum. No posting, advertising, shilling, or purchase is required. You do not need Qtum tokens to participate. You will have to leave your device online 24 hours / day. This can be a Laptop/PC/Raspberry Pi/VM/VPS/Potato, we don't care. If it compiles, you should be fine. Instructions are in this post, but you can find them at the event website as well: https://fullnodes.qtum.org/


If this event breaks any forum rules we're not aware of (we read the rules and believe this is fine) please delete this post.







We’re happy to announce another round of our Full Node Incentive Program. To maintain a healthy decentralized network, we are asking community members to lend some of their computing power and bandwidth to make this happen.

This is meant to be a fun community event where everyone can participate. It does not require participants to hold or purchase any Qtum tokens. Nothing is asked or required other than running a Qtum node. Last round there were less than 100 prizes, and after careful consideration, we have increased this to number to 822.

Prizes are awarded based on a random draw and online time, which means all you have to do is follow the instructions and leave your device online. Once you have verified that your node is correctly set up, no other action is required, and you may win a prize.

2  Economy / Services / (FULL) Qtum Social Media Campaign (twitter) on: January 16, 2017, 12:06:36 PM



Hello,

Welcome to the Twitter portion of the social media campaign.  Just like the signature campaign, we are trying to operate within the rules set by the forum administrators.  If you see any activity on this thread that looks suspicious, contact them immediately.  

We have hired a campaign manager for Twitter and Facebook, he will be updating the spreadsheet and confirming that the work promised was completed.  His name is KPCIAN, and he told us he will run this campaign with a newbie account called "iwantapony".  He is from Bangladesh, so please keep in mind he can't be on the computer 24 hours a day, and his time zone may be a lot different than yours.  Expect the response time to be 24 hours if you send a private message.

Please contact him first if you have any questions, then contact this account.  

All BTC will be sent to an escrow, and payments will start one week after he kicks off the campaign.  

You can speak with us directly via Slack on Qtum's slack channel:

https://qtumslack.herokuapp.com/

This is our Twitter:

https://twitter.com/QtumOfficial

This is our BTC wallet for marketing:

https://blockchain.info/address/1qtum1H39JbLjkBZGg4HVsrt9KD6FMS3g

We will announce the escrow soon, just like we did with the signature campaign.

For trolling and scam accusations, please make another thread.


3  Economy / Services / We are looking for a social media campaign manager on: January 14, 2017, 04:41:54 PM
Have you worked to promote big projects and got results?  Do you have decent English grammar, and know how to generate activity on Bitcointalk?  We need someone who can drive traffic to our twitter, facebook, slack and Bitcointalk.

No casino promoters, we are looking for quality and results.  Send a private message, along with the projects you have worked for.  We will most likely ask for referrals.
4  Economy / Services / QTUM Signature and Avatar Campaign [READ THE OP] on: January 11, 2017, 01:00:09 PM
BlackMambaPH just told me that we have received a complaint from the forum's moderators that participants in this campaign have been spamming.  From now on, if we get any more complaints like this, we will remove the participants and report them.  We may suspend or end the campaign if this persists.

Please keep in mind that the campaign manager looks at every post, and counts them as constructive or not.  This doesn't mean the moderators here care, they just see our logo, and if it's attached to spam then we can be held responsible for promoting these kinds of posts.

We can't and don't want to 'control' what people post, we will simply remove you from the campaign if we see spamming.  We have up until now just not counted spam posts as payable, but now if we see a pattern of spammy behavior, you will be removed.

Hello,

Welcome to the Qtum signature and avatar campaign.  First off, we would like to say that we plan on following the rules set out by the forum moderators here:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1684035.0

If you have not read these rules, the TL;DR version is that we will remove you from this campaign if your posts are not constructive.  One thing that we would like to mention is that we do not in any way want to control where and what you post, we only ask that your posts are constructive if you wear our signature and avatar.  If you decide to trash talk our project, that is fine, but obviously we will stop paying you.

We have hired a campaign manager on this forum named BlackMambaPH, he designed our signatures and asked if he could assist in this campaign.  We are paying him to design the campaign and enforce the rules, so please respect him.  He lives in the Phillipines, so please keep this in mind when you communicate with him, your time zone may be different.

This post will be moderated, as there should be no discussion here other than applying to participate.  Scam accusations and trolling are fine, just not in this thread please, we will actually delete posts.  If you want to troll or complain, please make another thread.  We expect there to be a lot of private messages because of this campaign, so please be patient if you send one.

This campaign will pay out in Bitcoin, and if necessary we can use an escrow.  We're not sure how an escrow will enjoy sending BTC to hundreds of addresses, so we will let our campaign manager deal with that problem if it comes up.

All bitcoins paid will originate from a Qtum address:  1qtum1H39JbLjkBZGg4HVsrt9KD6FMS3g

5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / [ANN] (QTUM) - A Scalable Smart Contract Platform w/ Proof of Stake on: December 19, 2016, 05:08:51 AM

The Blockchain Made Ready for Business


Build Decentralized Applications that Simply Work
Executable on mobile devices, compatible with major existing blockchain ecosystems



ABOUT

The Qtum Foundation is a Singapore based entity that promotes adoption of the Qtum Blockchain. Project inception began in March 2016, leading up to a successful crowdsale a year later. Over 10,000 BTC and 72,000 ETH were raised in less than 5 days, making Qtum one of the largest crowdfunded projects in history, at $15.6 million dollars.

Qtum is an open source Proof of Stake (PoS) blockchain application platform. Qtum’s core technology combines a fork of Bitcoin Core, an Account Abstraction Layer allowing for multiple Virtual Machines including the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) and Proof-of-Stake consensus aimed at tackling industry use cases.

We believe this will allow Smart Contracts and Decentralized Applications (DApps) to run on a familiar foundation, while offering a robust environment for developers. The underlying technology uses an “Account Abstraction Layer”, which acts as a bridge between the EVM and the Unspent Transaction Output model of Bitcoin Core. Building on Bitcoin’s reliable and proven-to-deliver blockchain, Qtum stacks its Account Abstraction Layer, allowing the Bitcoin Core 0.13 blockchain to seamlessly interact with the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM). With this innovation it is now possible to execute smart contracts and run DApps, simply and securely, in environments that were previously out of reach for Ethereum, combining the endless possibilities provided by smart contracts with the stability and maturity of the bitcoin ecosystem. There will also be Oracles and Datafeed functionality, allowing developers to create Smart Contracts built around trusted sources of information.

The Qtum Foundation plans to be the public blockchain for business. Development efforts will allow us to market this platform to various industries, such as: Mobile Telecommunications, Counterfeit Protection, Finance, Industrial Logistics (shipping, warranty, etc), and Manufacturing.




Build decentralized applications you can trust

Combining a modified Bitcoin Core infrastructure with an intercompatible version of the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), Qtum merges the reliability of Bitcoin’s unfailing blockchain with the endless possibilities provided by smart contracts.

Designed with stability, modularity and interoperability in mind, Qtum is the foremost toolkit for building trusted decentralized applications, suited for real-world, business oriented use cases. Its hybrid nature, in combination with a first-of-its-kind PoS consensus protocol, allow Qtum applications to be compatible with major blockchain ecosystems, while providing native support for mobile devices and IoT appliances.





Smart Contracts that Mean Business

Qtum makes it easier than ever for established sectors and legacy institutions to interface with blockchain technology. Create your own tokens, automate supply chain management and engage in self-executing agreements in a standardized environment, verified and tested for stability.

Smart Contract Lifecycle Managment

Qtum, in cooperation with its academic partners, develops tools and methods to standardize the workflow for business smart contract development. This includes the formally verifiable translation of human-readable agreements to machine smart contracts, and the error-resilient specification of their elements, terms and conditions.

Setting Industry Standards

Cooperating with a series of partners and third parties, Qtum aims to establish a smart contract hub, offering secure and thoroughly tested contract templates, tailor fitted for a multitude of industries and use cases, such as supply chain management, telecommunications, IoT, social networking, and many more.

Go Mobile

Building on Bitcoin’s UTXO model, the simple payment verification (SPV) protocol is supported by the Qtum codebase by default. As a result, it is now possible to execute smart contracts from lite wallets, which can be easily installed on any given mobile device, heralding an age of mobile decentralized applications.

With this, the blockchain is finally ready to take up disruption in a world in which half of all internet traffic is being generated by smartphones and tablets.


Account Abstraction Layer

Qtum extends Bitcoins 'Script' language so that it functions as a vehicle to transport code to Qtum’s version of the EVM. With this, it is now possible to execute smart contracts and run decentralized applications, simply and securely, in environments that were previously out of reach for turing-complete blockchains, combining the endless possibilities provided by smart contracts with the stability and maturity of the bitcoin ecosystem. Learn more.

Cross Platform and Backward Compatibility

Qtum is compatible with existing Ethereum contracts as well as Bitcoin gateways, and will maintain backward-compatibility even if the system is updated.

Specification

Total QTUM Supply: 100,000,000
Block Target: 128 seconds
Stake Return: ~4 QTUM
Algorithm: SHA256

Whitepaper




The Token

QTUMs are cryptographic software tokens used to engage with distributed applications (DApps) and smart contracts on the Qtum platform. QTUMs will serve as the staking currency of the Qtum blockchain and fuel computational operations performed by the Qtum network.

QTUM supply and Initial Distribution

With the setting of Qtum’s Genesis Block, one hundred million (100,000,000) QTUMs were created as Qtum’s initial token supply, on top of which ~1% annual Proof of Stake (PoS) inflation will be added.

The QTUM token supply were allocated as follows:


  • 51% of Qtum tokens (51,000,000) were distributed through the crowdsale
  • 20% of Qtum tokens (20,000,000 QTUM) were distributed among founders, early backers and the development team
  • 29% of Qtum tokens (29,000,000 QTUM) were allocated to community initiatives concerning business development, as well as academic research, education, and market expansion

QTUM is offered on many exchanges



The Qtum Foundation: Governance Structure

The development and maintenance of the Qtum Blockchain, as well as all services provided by Qtum, are directed and supervised by the Qtum Foundation - a non-profit organization, representing Qtum’s stake and token holders as elaborated below.

In order to avoid the inefficient conduct, open source and blockchain projects often suffer from, and to ensure a coherent and standardized implementation of the Qtum blockchain, the Qtum Foundation was established under the guidance and support of PwC. The Foundation will oversee the development of the Qtum Blockchain, advocate governance transparency, and promote the safety and harmony of the open source ecosystem.    

The design of the Foundation’s governance structure mainly considers sustainability, management effectiveness, and fund-raising security in the open source community. The Foundation consists of various committees, such as Executive Judgment, Code Review, Finance & HR, as well as Marketing & PR. The different committees work in cooperation to manage Qtum’s daily operations and special occasions with detailed operational procedures and rules.

Decentralized Governance Protocol

The Decentralized Governance Protocol (DGP) is designed so that individual blockchain parameters can be modified through a specially designed smart contract on the blockchain. Most importantly, this technology allows these blockchain parameters to be changed without any disruption to the ecosystem. After a setting change, no new software must be downloaded by users, and no intervention is needed from stakers and node operators.

The way the DGP works is relatively straightforward. First, a governing party for the DGP makes a proposal to change a parameter. Afterward, all the governing parties for the DGP can vote on the proposal, and if it receives enough approval votes, then the parameter change proposal becomes active. The proposal data is then placed in a standardized format and a particular storage space so that the blockchain software can easily access it without needing to execute the DGP contract directly.



The Foundation will also seek complementary services to aid our efforts in transparency and professionalism with a professional auditing firm, legal team and a professional digital asset management solution. We hope this will help promote the healthy development of the Qtum Project and serve as a model for other projects.

The content that will be made public to the community on the Qtum website:

  • The Qtum Foundation obtained digital and traditional assets, which include: bitcoin, ether, and other digital assets such as Qtum tokens, as well as, legal tender in the form of USD and RMB
  • Qtum will release monthly spending reports, including employee compensation, operating costs, marketing costs and other expenses



TEAM

Qtum is a global project that aims to be the bridge between the Bitcoin and Ethereum communities, the real world and blockchain world. Therefore it only makes sense that the Qtum team comes from both the Bitcoin and Ethereum communities as well traditional companies like Baidu, Alibaba, Tencent, NASDAQ and more.

The Qtum Project is proud to be backed by some of the most notable blockchain players, traditional Venture Capitalists, and executives from some of China’s largest technology companies.

See the full team at: https://qtum.org/en/team

We are looking for developers to build the next generation DApps on top of Qtum and invite you all to give our testnet a try. We are always on the lookout to enrich our very talented team, the next team member can be you!
