Here's an interesting snippet:

"The number of google searches of QTUM has increased since the beginning of March, showing increase in  interest in the coin even as BTC and ETH searches dropped significantly"

Recent Article By Cryptoninjas:



"A unique aspect of the Qtum platform is its combination a Bitcoin Core fork and Ethereum’s Virtual Machine (EVM). In other words, it is a hybrid blockchain. This blend results in extreme security–from the Bitcoin network–and extreme flexibility–derived from Ethereum-like smart contracts. Developers will be able to port projects from both Ethereum and Bitcoin onto Qtum’s platform with ease, keeping a level of compatibility with ongoing processes from derived both blockchains. This will save developers time and money, as key network components won’t have to be recreated from scratch."

According to data gathered by Blockchain.Info, the number of blockchain wallet users has been increasing exponentially since 2011. Last year ended with over 21 million wallet users, and if growth continues at a similar pace, the 2018 total could more than double. Along with a similar line, ICOs continue to grow at a blistering pace. Per CoinSchedule’s ICO tracker, there have already been seventy-plus ICOs raising over 2.8 billion dollars total, almost three-quarters the amount raised last year in about 20 percent of the time. Long story short, blockchain technology will enjoy another incredible year.

However, as blockchain users and blockchain startups increase in number, the industry as a whole still has some problems that need to be addressed. Despite tremendous growth, blockchain scalability, for example, is still a concern. As the number of users and businesses increases, existing blockchain systems will continue to crack under pressure. The Ethereum Network, for example, is used as the foundational infrastructure by hundreds of platform. And yet, despite attempts to scale and reduce blockchain bloat, the network is still overcrowded. Unless a solution is implemented relatively soon, things could get pretty ugly.

In response to these dire needs, several companies have stepped up and developed unique platforms that attempt to make blockchains more user-friendly. Qtum is one example of an advanced blockchain that addresses the problems with existing decentralized networks. It can not only scale, but also contains an amount of flexibility that will attract business and industry adoption. A huge part of Qtum’s potential is its hybrid blockchain structure. Many believe hybrid chains are the next step in blockchain development.
How the Qtum Platform Solves Existing Blockchain Problems

One of the key features of Ethereum is that it lets users integrate smart contracts into their systems. These self-executing contracts actualize once the terms of the contract are reached, giving companies an incredible amount of customizability.

Unfortunately, Ethereum smart contracts use the Proof-of-Work (PoW) protocol. This protocol is relatively expensive and often results in blockchain bloat. As a growing number of companies use Ethereum smart contracts and dApps (decentralized applications), there is the possibility that the blockchain becomes too big to function efficiently, train wrecking business operations. The inability to scale and effectively handle bloating may very well be the Achilles heel of the emerging industry.

In contrast to Ethereum, Bitcoin, and other dozens of other blockchains, the Qtum platform the Proof-of-Stake (PoS) protocol to implement its smart contracts. This means the platform will scale efficiently, minimizing the risk of blockchain bloat. What’s more, “[the] consensus mechanism of Proof-of-Stake is more suited for business applications”, per the company’s white paper, making it ideally suited to grapple with the steady influx of blockchain users and companies.

Ethereum’s Casper update, which will integrate a PoS protocol, is still facing delays that are stalling its rollout. Thus Qtum maintains a significant advantage because it has used PoS from the beginning. Control over the network will be truly decentralized, mitigating the risk of a 51 percent attack or a scenario where a few miners control the networl’s operations.

A unique aspect of the Qtum platform is its combination a Bitcoin Core fork and Ethereum’s Virtual Machine (EVM). In other words, it is a hybrid blockchain. This blend results in extreme security–from the Bitcoin network–and extreme flexibility–derived from Ethereum-like smart contracts. Developers will be able to port projects from both Ethereum and Bitcoin onto Qtum’s platform with ease, keeping a level of compatibility with ongoing processes from derived both blockchains. This will save developers time and money, as key network components won’t have to be recreated from scratch.

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, the hybrid blockchain technology is powered by an onchain governance mechanism that lets users easily adjust the parameters of the network. Block size, gas price, and gas limit will all be easily adjustable, preventing the need for network splits and hardforks. These important features make Qtum one of the most flexible infrastructure platforms available, which will be extremely helpful for businesses as they deal with the tremendous growth of blockchain technology.

"The number of google searches of QTUM has increased since the beginning of March, showing increase in  interest in the coin even as BTC and ETH searches dropped significantly"
the more people learn about the coin, the more interest is shown in it as a hybrid of the two main ecosystems bitcoin and Ethereum. after information about Hollywood interest became even more heated, I hope to see it soon in the price of a coin.

This QTUM project deserves a lot of recognition from the community.
I doubt people realise what potential this could have compared to pathetic attempts like cryptokitties.

Recommended Qtum wallet update:

* Fixed a bug where transactions with low fees would get stuck in the local mempool

* Fix a bug with clearing cache of StorageResults

* Add contract support to "createrawtransaction" rpc call

Can you confirm anything about bittrex participating in the swap? Or do we need to move our qtum out of bittrex for the swap?

Not confirmed yet (they're still doing some testing on our testnet to make sure it all works well on their systems), but the plan is for Bittrex to help with the swap

you alive? :\

yeah, most people probably have sold already at a loss and those holding on like me must be in quite a stressful situation.

Pan Entertainment Platform 777.Bingo Launches QTUM Heroes on Blockchain

World’s first pan-entertainment blockchain platform 777.Bingo is announcing the launch of its first venture in crypto-gaming.

QTUM Heroes is an online arena game designed to support cryptocurrency payments. It’s developed by leading game studio Mob Arts in collaboration with the QTUM blockchain. The new game comes after Mob Arts’ 2013 runaway success, House of Heroes. Thanks to its popularity, the mobile game was the first to be launched on all Tencent platforms despite being developed by a third party. Now, the studio’s own 777.BINGO platform is betting on cryptocurrencies for a new approach to the game industry. CSO Matt Lee stated that BINGO would be a “pioneer in linking the traditional gaming industry with new blockchain technology.” To participate in QTUM Heroes’ soft launch, visit 777.bingo.

The Qtum Heroes article is very cool, that's an example of gaming on Qtum. There was another article recently about content distribution:


"Two Roads Picture in collaboration with Vevue, which is a peer-to-peer application for video distribution hosted on Qtum’s chain, has announced the release of the first movie to be ever distributed for viewers via blockchain network. The movie is in the genre of dramedy and the main focus in the movie is set on a young man who is wasting his life as a hacker, but things quickly change for him once he begins stealing other people’s mail while pretending to be working as a postal office. Everything changes for the main protagonist when he meets a widow through the letters he’s been stealing while he is being chased by an FBI agent."

I really wish I could come to one of these meetup's. I am hoping to plan a trip to one of the blockchain conferences sometime this year. But lets see. I really love the QTUm project. I believe you don't require a minumum with their masternodes?/ Is this true?
