bitcoin talk forum is NOT the center of the earth for qtum community. this forum is only a downstream platform for second hand information to trickle down. China people, China. this coin will pump from the far east and most people here will have no idea why or what reason. but pump it will. i predict usd 100 by October

I thought this Qtum thread was long till I saw the Qtum thread in the Chinese section of this forum. It's 6-7 times longer than this thread. Take a look yourself and see. If I'm not mistaken, all the active Chinese users on this forum have commented at least once on Qtum's Chinese thread. Amazing!

exactly, the reason there are no posts on the Chinese thread is because Chinese people DO NOT use this forum...that's my point. guess your perspective is in a basement somewhere trolling this forum and not lifting your head to realize there is more to this world than BTC talk.  Grin

you are right, 99% Chinese people in crypto do not use bitcointalk....

they only use wechat.

and Qtum wechat community have about 10k people in china.
Yeah the wechat channels are very packed, but it's not optimal because wechat has a user limit per community so they have to split it up into multiple sub-communities.

I wish more people would use the official qtum forum so we can all talk to each other together, kind of a mess to use wechat honestly.

Either way, can't wait until testnet and then mainnet are out so people can finally start building projects on Qtum.  Maybe we'll get some of the ridiculous ICO pump ETH is getting if a few projects actually run their ICOs on Qtum Wink too bad Agrello is going with Ethereum for now.  A couple high quality ICOs on Qtum and we should be off to the moon Wink

Why haven't moderators banned this idiot yet?

Love your work Earlz, cannot wait for Sept!

Seriously, I'm an idiot?


If I said that the image above consisted of 250 people, you have every right to try to have me committed.

But when Qtum stated that they had 250 people attend but less than 80 people are depicted, it's me that's called an idiot for pointing out the lie. Now, take that and at least a couple dozen other discrepancies I've duly pointed out in re Qtum, and any reasonable person would conclude that they're not to be trusted, which, by the way, leaves you out as being reasonable given your stance.

hi man,,what's wrong with you man?

why can not you stop troll this thread?

do you have anything to do?

how many Qtum this billionaire hold ? why he invest?

Gleb, can you do some research on this guy?  thank you man





March 4: Hey, man, can you research this dude?
June 12: Hey, old man, get a job and quit trolling this thread!!!

Since you're new to this fuckin board, allow me to get you up to speed as to my past efforts on this forum. EVERY FUCKIN enitity I've called out as a scam proved to be a scam. I've spent over 100 hours investigating everything there is about Qtum, whereas you probably didn't even spent an hour prior to being ready to hand over you fuckin money.

Hey, if you come to Vegas you can visit The Legends Room, another outfit proven to be a scam. Here's their thread - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1874632.0 - where you won't find one post proving the outfit as a scam because ... wait for it ... the dev keeps deleting all the posts penned my me and several others. The address for the strip club is nothing but a empty warehouse building and when asked about showing any licenses, they claim they exist but WON'T provide links.

Well based on this logic, Qtum isn't a scam because they don't delete your posts and allow you to troll their board...constantly.  Hmmm, interesting.

I have no idea whether Qtum is a scam or not.  I am holding judgement to see what the TestNet and MainNet launch bring about, see how many other coins want to partner with Qtum, and see how the Chinese people react to it all.  Westerners are not the target market (yet?) for Qtum so I will reserve my opinion until I see a working product.

Wow, I must commend you for your time and effort you put into your attacks. And I must admit I did not once look at the Chinese thread before posting, for that I do apologize and admit that I am wrong....but still, you must admit there is more to this world than sticking your finger up your ass, which obviously you have more experience with than I.

Hi everyone, just wanted to give a quick update with what I've been busy on. Right now I'm preparing for a technical demo video featuring a mobile app directly interacting with a smart contract stored on the blockchain via the SPV protocol. I don't have anything cool to show yet except for some code for my console test app (First time using the NBitcoin library, so it's been a learning experience heh), but I figured some of you out there might be interested and think it was cool.

very few people really understand what Qtum is doing now.

it always take time for people to understand new approach.

Ethereum is based on account model and also still in POW phase.

Qtum is based on UTXO model and will start from POS directly.

Patrick Dai, Co-Founder and CEO of Qtum sits down with Nasdaq's Brad Smith at the Consensus Summit 2017 to discuss his company's work simplifying the conversion between Bitcoin and Ethereum. He began the conversation by noting that he felt as though "the whole world was embracing the blockchain technology," which encourages him to do more when he returns to China.

BLOCKCHAIN REPORTS: QTUM
BLOCKCHAIN REPORTS: QTUM

By Kevin Feather / Digital Content Strategy

Patrick Dai, Co-Founder and CEO of Qtum sits down with Nasdaq's Brad Smith at the Consensus Summit 2017 to discuss his company's work simplifying the conversion between Bitcoin and Ethereum. He began the conversation by noting that he felt as though "the whole world was embracing the blockchain technology," which encourages him to do more when he returns to China.

How Would You Explain Blockchain to a 5th Grader?

Smith asked Dai the question posed to others at the conference, "How would you explain blockchain to a 5th Grader? Dai responded, "I would tell them that it is the future of the Internet. The future of money, the Internet, and the future of society. Blockchain is a decentralized network that costs less. It can replace the old escrow service from the traditional industry. With it, you can build a virtual escrow service. You can automate all business transactions. I feel this is really powerful. A seemless transfer of any value on the blockchain with low or no fees."

Combining Two of the Biggest Blockchain Systems

Qtum was developed by Dai and the other founders to combine the to biggest systems of the blockchain -- Bitcoin and Ethereum. From the companies website, "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."

Qtum views itself as a "toolkit for building trusted decentralized applications."

Blockchain as the Value-Transfer Protocol for the Next Generation?

Asked what excites him about blockchain, Dai replied, that he's excited to see "blockchain has the potential to become the money-transfer protocol or what we call the value-transfer protocol of the next generation."

All went down the drain when Bancor ICO got 158 million USD fund. that is from ETH alone. and all the addresses can be viewed from etherscan.io. that`s what they call transparency. you can see who holds the most coins and see if the coin is over inflated.

When will Qtum be launched as a token?  (NOT Pre-Launch)

Is it worth investing in it now at the current price?

The test network will be available this month, and the main network will launch in September.

Many Qtum ICO purchasers recently received an email from BizHongChou.com stating people can now trade Qtum tokens on their website.  A follow up email with was sent encouraging users to do just that.

If I want to simply hold tokens until MainNet launch, do you advise simply doing nothing and waiting?  Or should I create an account as per the email instructions and just hold the Qtum tokens on the updated trading portion of their site?  Or some third option?

I really just want to have the best security possible until MainNet where I can withdraw to my own wallet, and would like to know what Qtum advises.

THIS IS WONDERFUL, but allow me ask a crazy-ass question - where did BizHongChou.com get the mailing list of Qtum's ICO purchasers? Think about it while this broke-ass old man without a job goes outside to air up the tires on his stolen van via a loaned air pump down by the Colorado River below two dams that one day may or may not burst.

Well they got my email from when I signed up to buy the ICO tokens from the BiZHongChou website, and asked for my email - and I gave it to them.  That isn't really a conspiracy.  BizHongChou is one of the ICO distributors.

Okay, let's see if I've got this one straight. Qtum has a forum designed to update its investors, most of which are in China, but the forum is in ... wait for it ... English, WITHOUT an option to view it in Chinese.

Question: How is it humanly possible for Qtum to claim that most of its investors came from China when on their very Chinese forum its a virtual ghost town where there's few views of, and even fewer posts on threads, some penned months ago?

Are we lead to believe that most all of Qtum's convos take place on WeChat?


"Dude, check it out! I just got an alert from WooWooChat. Looks like Qtum is gonna be the next greatest thing since sliced bread. It's not build yet, but they promised to have it build by September with some guy named Steve or Patrick leading the pack. The crack team is gonna marry Bitcoin with Ethereum. I'm so in! I'm buying ten thousand dollars worth. How 'bout you? Oh, look! That old man, Bruno, who doesn't have a job thinks it's a scam. Now I'm gonna buy thirty thousand dollars worth of Qtum. I'm gonna be rich!"

Well, good to know Gleb is an expert in China and all modern Chinese culture and social media practices. Remind me again, how many weeks have you spent in China to get all this knowledge?

Anyway, for those not in the know (including myself to some extent), WeChat is pretty unbelievably big. WeChat accounts for 30% of all mobile internet time spent in China, and Chinese people spend on average 90 minutes per day on WeChat. It has ~800M daily users (most of which are Chinese)... For a western comparison, Facebook has 1.2B monthly users (couldn't find a good daily number). Everyone here talks about how Facebook wants to become the portal to the internet, but WeChat has already successfully done that in China. WeChat has mini-apps and such, as well as handling money etc. If you have a phone with only WeChat installed in China, you're prepared for about 95% of what life throws at you. Most people in China don't bother with laptops, it's all about phones and mobile access. I've tried learning some Chinese (both speaking and typing), and it blew my mind how easy Chinese is to type out on a phone. To me the Android and iOS Chinese keyboards are a lot easier than a traditional PC keyboard (with Window's built in pinyin thing). Anyway, all this to say that trying to understand the culture from outside without having seen how people there interact and without having learned any of the language is difficult. I know when I visited there for the first time it was an absolute culture shock, even with all the reading and such I did beforehand.

Our plans to integrate smart contracts with WeChat is also driven by how large it is, and we think this will ultimately propel us into mainstream usage in China, allowing app developers to integrate blockchain technology into the readily accessible WeChat mini-app market

WeChat has mini-apps and such, as well as handling money etc. If you have a phone with only WeChat installed in China, you're prepared for about 95% of what life throws at you. Most people in China don't bother with laptops, it's all about phones and mobile access. I've tried learning some Chinese (both speaking and typing), and it blew my mind how easy Chinese is to type out on a phone. To me the Android and iOS Chinese keyboards are a lot easier than a traditional PC keyboard (with Window's built in pinyin thing). Anyway, all this to say that trying to understand the culture from outside without having seen how people there interact and without having learned any of the language is difficult. I know when I visited there for the first time it was an absolute culture shock, even with all the reading and such I did beforehand.

Our plans to integrate smart contracts with WeChat is also driven by how large it is, and we think this will ultimately propel us into mainstream usage in China, allowing app developers to integrate blockchain technology into the readily accessible WeChat mini-app market

I haven't decided whether Gleb is a very sophisticated troll, or if he is a suspicious person by nature who is prone to cynical beliefs. In any case, I'd take what he says with a grain of salt. As you can tell, he needs to straighten himself out.

Gleb says, "Think about it while this broke-ass old man without a job goes outside to air up the tires on his stolen van via a loaned air pump down by the Colorado River below two dams that one day may or may not burst."
