i think Qtum have some similar approach as Ethereum.

Dear hodlers,

The time has come to put your bytes into real use.

We are launching P2P insurance on smart contracts https://medium.com/byteball/making-p2p-great-again-episode-iv-p2p-insurance-cbbd1e59d527.

Starting today, you can use your bytes to buy or sell insurance against flight delay.
Some of you might be going to fly in the near future.  Buy insurance from peers and get paid if your flight is delayed.  
If you are selling insurance, you have opportunity to make a profit, thus earning interest on your holdings (with correct risk management, of course!).

Before buying/selling, learn stats about your flight to estimate the probability of delay and decide how much you are willing to pay (if buying) or ask (if selling).  Some useful resources:
http://www.flightstats.com
http://flightaware.com/
https://www.flightradar24.com

Then post your offer in #p2p_insurance channel on our slack.

I'm going to fly to Dalaman (Turkey) via Istambul, and to get this market going, I ask you to insure my flights:
TK420 on Apr 30
TK2554 on Apr 30
TK2561 on May 9
TK413 on May 10

I'm willing to pay 10% for insurance against delay of 15 minutes or more, or 5% for insurance against delay of 30 minutes or more (I didn't actually research the stats and don't know how fair these premiums are, but a disbalance of supply and demand will tell me if I'm wrong).  Each flight is a separate contract, and I'll be more than happy to buy from different sellers.


that's a great usecase.
226  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][XEL] Elastic Project - The Decentralized Supercomputer on: April 28, 2017, 02:14:06 AM
i just hope elastic can worth 100000 BTC.

since elastic is better than golem. Smiley

Plenty of examples in history where the winner is the first rather than the best.

But golem does not work yet, it's just traded for now, unless I'm mistaken.

There is still no general purpose decentralized computer like elastic that is functioning. So still time to be the first.

 It's still pretty important to attract promiscuous investors capital early on. In this regard I would prefer to see XEL tradable as early as possible to stake out our positions.

that's a good point too.

i can feel this is the best altcoin market right now.

maybe 3 months later, the winter is coming. just like 2014....

Don't use the current git! New features are coming soon  Wink And a first real use case.
The new feature will be a "storage" for jobs. So jobs can be created with multiple "iterations".

This works like this:
1. In the first round bounties are submitted normally. Al bounty submissions have attached a "storage" value - this is basically data that the work author wants to "keep". The storage is filled from within the Elastic PL program.
2. When the maximum number of bounties is reached, the job goes into iteration 2 (and 3 and 4 ...) where the job can reuse the "storage" from other iterations.
3. The job is closed when ITERATIONS*MAX_BOUNTIES Bounties are reached.


Why do we need this? Simulated Annealing, Genetic Algorithms, and any other optimization technique which is iteration-based and needs information from the prior iteration.

Not sure if the 10 bounty limit is not too low at this point. Will finish the implementation tomorrow, then we can test it!


we can see elastic is better than golem and iex.  Cheesy

The most impressionable statement for me.

...Many of the people in the Bitcoin community are sociopaths. They often steal things or cause drama, then immediately blame it or scapegoat it on someone else. They are not even done stealing the money, before they go on campaign of moral indignation against the fall person...

this is perhaps the no. 1 funny post I have read in this forum - ever

To be fair, the iconic Pinkie Pie episode on this forum is perhaps the funniest.

nice to see you come back.  Cheesy

your post are adding more activity on this thread.

also do we have the source code of current website?

- https://qtum.org

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.


I won't trust dev that promoting qtum-SCAM.....

I have not looked at qtum's code.

We know the qtum founder and he is one of the largest investors in Skycoin from four years ago, before qtum or any of this. Some of the people around him are legendary scammers, but he is not a scammer.

I think Patricks role in the bitbay situation is exaggerated. I read through the arguments and it just sounds like drama.

Many of the people in the Bitcoin community are sociopaths. They often steal things or cause drama, then immediately blame it or scapegoat it on someone else. They are not even done stealing the money, before they go on campaign of moral indignation against the fall person.

I think Patrick was blamed for Bitbay because his personality makes him an easy victim for sociopaths and the human predators in the bitcoin community. There are people walking around, sizing people up and trying to determine whether they can manipulate someone, setup a scam, steal things and who is going to be gullible or a fall person.

If you knew the people involved, you would understand what the social dynamic is.

>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.

that's really a good post, smart people know the truth.

Any exchanges trading in IOU slips yet?

not yet.

until mainnet release, i think there will no exchange for this.

Development Update:



Over the last few weeks, the Qtum mobile team has been work on the lite wallet Smart Contract functions. Yesterday, we produced some screenshots that showcase what to expect in the months to come.

Here are some details:


1, The mobile wallet is pre-alpha, operating in a very early Test Network

2, The screenshots show that you can create your own tokens as part of a contract, to launch your own project in 3 steps.

3, The SPV integration is not yet complete, it's all going through a centralized server right now. This will be ready after the Main Network is released.

4, We are taking suggestions on which Smart Contract function you would like included in this software.


thank you!


















the mobile wallet is great!

so i can release my token in this wallet?

how much you charge for release one token?

thank you!

Hi @Evil-Knievel, Hows going?

Share some info about timeline with us...

just be patient, i think all community members will be happy.
