finally people understand skycoin! i am happy for the skycoin dev.

Qtum, will probably replace ethereum because it is simpler and has fewer problems. The UXTO model is much cleaner. They have a lot of previous developers and have already done two previous coins and are the best team I have seen so far.

Also how can you be so confident qtum is going to replace ETH based on it's tech when they haven't released code yet?

Ethereum is using an accounts model, like Ripple. Which is anti-blockchain and anti-privacy and very traceable. It is against the philosophy of Bitcoin.

All coins going forward will be on the UXTO model and it is best practice for blockchain. Moving turing complete smart contracts off of accounts model and onto UXTO is extremely important and that is what qtum appears to be doing.

We need to figure out how to do general computation on a UXTO model. Instead of being restrained to the Ripple/Ethereum accounts model.

I think they will get closer to the goal, but only get there part way

thin client for smart contracts (major limitation for existing system)
moving smart contracts onto UXTO (major milestone)
I do not know if qtum has succeeded, but they seem to be going in right direction. I talked to one of their technical leads and they were focused on "Getting it working with something we can do now" and then incremental improvement over time. So first implementing the Ethereum virtual machine on top of UXTO, then working out the research problems for a native turing complete UXTO language later.

I do not know if there is a way to full UXTO while still having "gas". I think you will need to get rid of the "gas". In the ethereum model to take full advantage. I do not know if qtum will be able to go far enough in doing that, but is heading in the correct direction.

Ethereum tries to be both a token and a computer.

we started with pure tokens (Bitcoin)
then we added a computer to the tokens (Ethereum)
now we just trying to figure out how to build pure computer on UXTO
Then once we have the computer, the tokens or coins just become a program or entity running on this "distributed computer"
Bitcoin, Ethereum, qtum, byteballs, etc are just stepping stones. Towards a final solution. None of these will exist or be relevant in ten years. We are in an age of transition and I am looking at the projects that are getting closer to the goal, in a pure mathematical sense.

Even Skycoin is being ripped up and its foundations constantly rewritten when it is advantageous to do so. Bitcoin is static and relatively unchanging, while Ethereum has been able to get the community to accept constant small changes.

Skycoin is on a punctuated equilibrium model, where we do bug fixes and polishing, then completely rip up and rebuild the foundation as needed, then go back to bug fixes and polishing.

Right now, we are exploring new networking primitives and the advantage of immutable data structures, but are still on blockchain. Putting EVM on UXTO is heading towards immutable data structures from the perspective of computation, while we are heading towards immutable data structures from the path of consensus, networking and simplifying object synchronization protocols.

One of the pilots that is being spun out of that project is the distibuted, peer-to-peer social media platform built upon immutable data structures and peer-to-peer object replication. For this Skycoin chose a public key, cryptographic publisher/subscriber model and DAG immutable object tree. While Ethereum's project chose a Kadmelia DHT block storage model.

Ignoring the individuals and the drama, I am just looking at the "future direction" and who is heading in that direction.

Also how can you be so confident qtum is going to replace ETH based on it's tech when they haven't released code yet?

I am not confident it will replace Ethereum. At the start, it will be equivalent to ethereum in terms of being able to run the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) on top of qtum with UXTO. Then they will do a native language.

It will depend on the implementation. I do not know if qtum has succeeded, but they seem to be going in right direction.

Similarly, Byteballs may fail or may not exist in ten years, but they are pioneering the first experiments into replacing the Blockchain with a DAG. Which we have been considering for several years now.

Similarly, Bitcoin was the first but people are getting used to the idea that it will not be the final or best cryptocurrency. That it was just the first generation and that we can build better and improve it substantially.

seems bitcointalk is dead now?
105  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] (QTUM) - A Scalable PoS Smart Contract Platform - MainNet Complete! on: May 19, 2018, 04:47:04 AM
What is the origin and meaning of the name "QTUM"? How is it pronounced?

Quantum

106  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [SKY] Skycoin Launch Announcement on: May 11, 2018, 09:04:00 AM
skycoin just need a bigger exchange

please do it
107  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] (QTUM) - A Scalable PoS Smart Contract Platform - MainNet Complete! on: May 11, 2018, 09:03:21 AM
why people are still buying neo with 7 nodes ?

1 nodes worth 1 billion dollars?

that's the reason why neo marketcap is higher?

108  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [SKY] Skycoin Launch Announcement on: May 05, 2018, 01:10:39 AM
this coin is really really old....
109  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: BYTEBALL: Totally new consensus algorithm + private untraceable payments on: May 05, 2018, 01:10:00 AM
old people already left the industry,the new people do not understand Blockchain..

110  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] (QTUM) - A Scalable PoS Smart Contract Platform - MainNet Complete! on: May 05, 2018, 01:07:55 AM
so Qtum is better than Bitcoin or Ethereum?

but people love centralized Blockchain...

Seems Qtum community is become better and better

when Qtum will be top10 ?

this year or next year

i think few of the exchanges

Check out the Qtum JS wallet toolkit: "This is a client-side wallet library that can generate private keys from a mnemonic, or import private keys from other QTUM wallets" https://github.com/qtumproject/qtumjs-wallet

that's really nice

qtum will be top 5  this year!
115  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] (QTUM) - A Scalable PoS Smart Contract Platform - MainNet Complete! on: February 27, 2018, 04:06:49 AM
how many coin in circulation?

seems coinmarketcap are listing a wrong circulation?

can you ask them update it ?

116  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] (QTUM) - A Scalable PoS Smart Contract Platform - MainNet Complete! on: February 27, 2018, 03:58:43 AM

that's a nice article

Hi community
Tell me what is the interest rate of this coin?
What is the minimum balance for starting a POS?

no minimum balance

right now i think it's 7% per year
118  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] (QTUM) - A Scalable PoS Smart Contract Platform - TestNet Live! on: August 13, 2017, 05:20:30 PM
These next few weeks will be critical for anyone watching the Qtum project, we will be making some big announcements leading up to our Main Network release late September.

thanks for the updates!

expecting the good news!

Qtum = BTC++  and ETH ++

119  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] [XEL] :: Elastic - The Decentralized Supercomputer :: on: August 07, 2017, 12:43:55 AM
I sold some XEL that I bought at very cheap prices! Now I'll be focused on absorbing more XEL when this hype disappears! Elastic is a much superior design and will grow slowly, consistently, in the style of Stratis, Ethereum and Bitcoin. For starters, be careful with this moment, XEL may jump to random prices, the correct at that moment is to believe the people involved here. Smiley


i hope Elastic will be top20 in few months!
120  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: BYTEBALL: Totally new consensus algorithm + private untraceable payments on: August 05, 2017, 06:34:18 PM
can we reward more byteball to byteball holder?

like 1GB get 0.3GB byteball ?
