Really?

Evidence? You're requsting evidence when posting on top of the pile of evidence?

Talking about shills? How about you check this guy?
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=85019
In case you don't know about the Kolin Saga then you're already in the wrong place

You might be "legendary" but i'm older than you on this forum Wink

Yes that guy turned out a bit toxic for the community in the end but one could argue he made qrk famous in a way.

The problem with qrk was the coin didn't have a sensible emission and the dev didnt bother too much with it.

The release was fair to a degree. The strongest pow miners got a lot of it but the dev got not unfair advantage and i suspect very few coins

Bill helped it get recognition but the investors were not crypto folk so they just hoarded their coins and did not build the community.

Then it collapsed and this is where we are.

Very famous and aged coin needs a complete overhaul. I sold mine much too late and could have been rich from qrk. However the old community before it broke down was great and had a lot of good ideas. One of the best communities ever except doge at once point.

Needs to be totally upgraded and turned to pos the pow reward is too small to give any real security to the chain.

quark is a great name though many in crypto have heard of it.

I'm thinking that a good way to revive QRK might be by leveraging its simplicity.

You know what they say, there's beauty in simplicity, and, in this case, there's security in simplicity as well since there is less that can break. If you've got something of value that you want to keep safe, what do you want, a safe deposit box, or a safe deposit box with bells and whistles that can also make you a Nespresso?

A widely distributed, decentralized, ultra secure (9 rounds of hashing from 6 hashing functions) cryptographic digital currency that only gets more valuable (nowhere to go from here but up).

It holds to exactly what the original definition and ethos was. What more could we ask for?

Beauty in simplicity. Quark doing exactly what you want - independently and securely preserving the value of your stored wealth - nothing more and nothing less.

As if that was a little feat in and of itself!

we can go on blocknet now then I guess?

what further developments have you got planned? exchanges should be number 1 priority

how can such a famous coin not be on bittrex at minimum

can we do some major upgrades to quark?

any chance of the old members of the qrk foundation returning?

I think we should turn this into a pos masternode system the tail emission is to small at current prices to even secure the chain really isnt it?

Perhaps a look at what mue or pivx are doing is useful.

All valid points. It would make sense to make some major changes, like those mentioned.

I suggest users contact their favourite exchange and request Quark, e.g. Poloniex:

I have joined this cryptoscene in 2013, and this was the first coin I have invested into. furthermore, I told my friends and family to do the same Grin unfortunately it happened right at the peak of 30 cents, but who could predict the ending result? I remember that Bill Still guy and our expectations before his coverages Grin

Quark is in good positions in this MapOfCoins.com

Much better than the current price valuation.

the dev needs to bring on a team through the 10% funding tax like dash has.

he can not code all this himself.

qkr is a famous coin that can easily be revamped.

need bittrex and polo to accumulate some whilst it is still cheap so they will list it.

I would say no more pow just go POS only.

Whatever changes are to be made have got to be extremely well thought out, as in "white paper" stuff. Defining the end user's needs to be met, deciding on available technology, answering the how's, why's and whether it's worth it, etc. of each possibility, have all got to be clearly spelled out. The worst thing you can do is to invest time and money into something that you end up changing (or throwing away - or worse yet, that gets thrown out with you and the bathwater by end users) later on. It's also nice to have that "road map" for the "average" person. I agree that the discussion needs to take place and this might just be as good a place as any for an open discussion about all initial ideas that everyone has to put forward. Rest assured that many a nut will come around to try and mess with people's minds, and that is another of many good reasons why we should plan on a calm, cool, collected and unhurried process if what we want is something that really is well thought out and thoroughly designed. Certainly not a task to be taken lightly or whimsically, rather something that the eventual finished product merits. Mission statements are basic helpful aspects of long term design and planning, for example, which in and of themselves can take time.

I would say that what is most important for me is first and foremost always staying as loyal as possible to the original ethos, which is that of a widely distributed decentralized cryptographic digital currency, the stronger, the better. That, in my opinion, is key to success given that its very design was to fulfill that precise end and meet the monetary security needs of the end user for whom it was designed. Originally it was to protect people's wealth from centralized and controlled fiat depreciation. What's the purpose and how do we best achieve it? That's my central question.

I think everything opens up from that fundamental starting point. Everything in between both ends of the spectrum is then on the table, with one extreme being something more like a vehicle for long term store of wealth, and the other being the idea that it should be something to be used to buy coffee at Starbucks . . . and everything in between, as I said. Different technologies might be more suitable for some designs than others. There's certainly a lot to be considered. It would also be nice to try and get the opinions of larger and longer term holders to the degree that that might be reliably possible.

Nevertheless, I think the immutable foundation from which to build is a widely distributed decentralized secure cryptographic digital currency that really is tried and true secure. That's my 2 cents on where we should begin. Spare me Ethereum hackable innovations. No sir. I'll let others play with testing as I prefer to use the stable version. I want "Known Good". And I think that when it comes to making sure their money is safe, that's exactly what the majority of people want. I think that being able to buy coffee at Starbucks comes in a distant 2nd, or 3rd, or 4th, or 5th, way down on the priority list, and it's a niche at that. (Nobody's going to have all the market - at least not for many years anyway - and all the big survivors are going to fill niches). You can't be everything to everybody, can you? Realistically thinking? And to throw caution to the wind in an attempt to do so? I think it's best to stay with what you do better than anyone else, and in this case I think that means being the best storage of wealth, first and foremost, and then build on that.

Anyhow, I think you've got a great idea there to start talking about what can be done to revive Quark, and to do my part to help get the discussion going, I hereby present these very humble opinions on what I think is the fundamental basis from which to work.  Wink

  What can help Quark is if the btc38 links page for Quark could be updated. http://www.btc38.com/altcoin/qrk/    I mention this to btc38 and gave them the link to the new website http://www.qrknet.info/  But they haven't updated anything yet. Chinese investors depend on this page for their info. Some of these links are dead. It is discouraging most of the Chinese and world investors. If the rest of you could send a line over to btc38 it would help the most.

"a widely distributed decentralized secure cryptographic digital currency that really is tried and true secure" I could not agree more with this statement and I believe we have this with Quark as it is now with the latest working client.
What we have is a problem with mining viability in that it cost more to run POW than Quark is worth. The only way to move forward as POW and to make it viable to be POW is to increase the value of Quark until its viable and cost effective.
Problem is without development to increase value we will see Quark do what its been doing and slowly decline to an un-viable dead project that gives no return to vested parties involved and people move to the next viable option. Human require incentive this is a fundamental truth that will never change.

POS would solve the viability problem and this = 1 positive move for Quark

This does not however solve the issue with development incentive and this is Quarks main downfall. We must create development incentive.

I do think we can sure try to be everything to everyone as that will be the most widely accepted crypto, but understand that there are flaws with different aspects of each innovation that is utilized. But this is where we can innovate around these new innovations and better them.





Yes this is why we need to employ the 10 % dev tax with governance that dash and pivx have.

We need max to bring on a team to help him get qrk back into the race again. One person can not compete alone these days.

Also bittrex and polo need to be onboard. Anyone who can contact these exchanges and alert them to the upcoming and possible comeback of qrk whilst it is still cheap is doing qrk a favor. ALthough I don't like it they need have  chunk of qrk to allow us to use their service.

The qrk dev has already said up thread that some a huge revamp is in accordance with what he sees for qrk going forward.

He just does not seem to have the time alone to focus on qrk 24/7.

We the block tax (that I mentioned years ago here) to fund a development team that are dedicated full time to this project.

If we had introduced these changes 2 years ago we would probably be top 10 -20 now. Let's get cracking on it now.

Someone has suggested DI sold out of his qrk position and has been trying to buy back in as low as possible, hence driving away core members etc.

If DI holds a large amount of QRK then he must be motivated to see qrk succeed.  I have no idea why he would want the core members like qrkfx, coinmama and vic to leave or why he talks to them like he does.

Let's see, i mean it seems impossible to tell if he really believes what he says and does are for the benefit of qrk long term or not?

I suspect DI does want qrk to succeed but wants to do it "his way". Anything not exactly "his way" is firmly met with a wall of less than diplomatic criticism. More of a personally trait than him trying to drive the price of qrk down. Although if this kind of attitude towards other core members really does make them want out then that can lead to the same thing.

DI why not post your qrk address so we can see you're on board with qrk.  Seems like a conspiracy theory that you're anti qrk until you can buy back in but let's see. If you have a 100k qrk wager i guess you have a few more hundred k stashed away somewhere right?

QRKfx was a big loss to the qrk community in my opinion. His ideas and drive were very interesting and i think he had proven without doubt he was a loyal qrk supporter. The fact more people are not concerned about people like this leaving the community is worrying. Vic not being around is again worrying, he was the public driving force on this board for a long time.

The problem with qrks core member seems to be that they are very sensitive and not robust enough to push through their ideas to the community clearly. QRKfx's paper had some VERY interesting ideas but these were just pushed aside by simple negative remarks that really had nothing to back them up.  The core members should have formed a stable leadership and put in place a system where their suggested actions are put forward to the community and then analysed before being actioned.  We can not allow negative (or positive) comments to have weight without analysis it just makes no sense to say you do or don't approve without a valid reason that can be seen as logical to everyone else.

So let's get on with the leadership side of things.

Let's get the core members that have proven beyond doubt they are qrk supporters through hard work together and make all discussion public on the thread. Next step is to get some funds together to attract a new developer and project manager. If you look at 'hyper' they have a public development pot that is held by escrow for development and marketing purposes only.

Don't be shy guys if you have worked on qrk projects and are pro qrk put yourself forward to be part of the foundation. Once formed and we have some clear leadership (people that dare to suggest direct and purpose without feeling they are being bossy) the community can get behind some of these ideas and we can work towards getting some things done.

Anyone should be able to join the foundation so long as we know their motives are clearly pro qrk. The only way to really know this is to see they own a large amount of qrk. I mean sure a whale could buy up a ton of qrk to appear pro qrk when really his motives are anti qrk, but that is less likely and for now i can see no better way of testing qrk loyalty. It seems as soon as someone does not agree with someone else they are called trolls, shills, etc. This really would be less likely if they had a 500k quark in their wallet.

Sitting here waiting to be picked up by some huge multinational company as their chosen currency is not working out too well.  Let's build a few services out ourselves that use qrk and expand their user base then perhaps other companies and services will take note.


Let's also analyse( NOT just say it sounds good or bad) the ideas that have previously been put forward to help solve some of qrks perceived issues.


1. POS -  

Is POS proven to be less secure than POW only. What about the hybrid pos +pow? where are the experts sunnyking, rat4 etc to really get to the bottom of this issue.

we don't want to inflate the minting too much .... better still not at all.  
.
There are many options/variations available here.

After reading through qrkfx's paper one part i like was the taxing side of things.  This gives a lot of incentive to help secure the chain.


We could cut off pow altogether and go full POS with the same inflation rate. However that won't be incentive enough. What though if we introduced a small tax on those that do not help secure the chain by having their wallet open for staking. That tax can be either sent to the foundation to fund projects/developers/services or given as random superblock rewards to staking wallets. I was against random superblocks for mining because it made no sense to burn electricity for a possible reward. However, as miner i have some machines running or at least my laptop full time anyway so why not leave my qrk wallet staking to avoid the small tax and to earn some qrk  and possibly a super pos block.

There can be many variations including pos+pow ....whatever we like.

The only issue i see is POS seems touchy about working with the qrk algo.  I know a couple of coins tried it and it was not a huge success.

Is the qrk algo even important to qrk anymore? i mean look at all the qrk clones they are dead. The algo doesn't mean all that much it would seem, especially when the POW phase is pretty much over. So what is the big deal about switching qrk at this point to another algo? lets discuss not scream that is profanity to suggest such a thing.

Of course this all may seem like a terrible idea to you, so let's hear why exactly it would be so bad. Let's analyse the idea in public. If it turns out to be a bad idea and we can all logically see why then we just forget it.



2 - the superblock (not mining superblocks)  - the one off 10% or whatever block held by escrows and to be released only upon community consultation for projects and services already completed.

Let's think of all the possible positives and negatives and weight them up.


3. The POB or QRK only ipo companion coin - the coin that will allow features and experimentation we do not want coded into qrk itself - that could provide the funding for services and projects that can be jointly shared with qrk if we as a community choose it to be so. It could also be used as a tool to bring back to the community those investors that have bunches of qrk but want no involvement with the qrk project.


again let's weigh the possible positives and negatives of this.


4 ROI projects - what projects , who will manage then? what will be their incentive? i like this idea of building out our own services or uses for qrk but how to get those qrk whales interested in investing?


If none of the above meet your fancy then what do you suggest for qrk - leave it as it is and see what happens? hopefully it will for some reason become more desirable to investors or businesses for some unknown reason in the future?


Before any of that though we need some leadership and public leadership at that. I notice on all communities the coin dies when there is no clearly defined leadership. When new leadership is on the scene the community will rally around this and things get done.













 - Vic is 100% with Quark he took an 80+ hour job i still email him.

- Qrkfx and Coinmama choose to leave explain what they did for Quark?  


- your long list of solutions means Quark is broken right?

take my Bet?  Bitcoin is surely the winner here if Quark is not better than Bitcoin you win easy Quark take the bet?



------------------------------------------------------------------------

here is what we are looking at:

 - C Bloc  (bounty up 50k)
 - Merge mine  (in the works )
-  Mini BLockchain  ( if ever its being tested )
-  continued assessment of the best CPoW algo.


i'm not going to be rude, (as i've bumped the threat enough)

but that list you just posted looks childish next to what is actually happening ; C bloc - Merge etc.

so of course there are unfortunately two choices  (they are both bad)

1. the people that came up with that list are intellectually challenged  (possible)
2. they are meant to be "disruptors" but are very bad at that job and should consider car park attendant employment ?  (saying "i'm reacting" doesn't mean you are good at your job, it means you didn't achieve anything)


If qrk stays at the price it is now for 10 years and bitcoin drops 0.1% is not essentially a huge positive for qrk. Bitcoin for me is way over valued already compared to qrk. ALthough that does not mean that qrk is in an ideal position. Something need not be broken for it to lose against something better. Bitcoin would obviously still be viewed as the better coin if it dropped 50% and qrk stayed the same for the next 10 years. I see the bet as pointless for that exact reason. Yes qrk may be reaching it's bottom for now whilst others have only now started to slip who can say, this is speculation.


The list posted looks childish compared to c - block?  explain how exactly? let's get specific. Tell me exactly how c - block will solve any of qrks issues.

I have said already that the entire concept of c - block to me won't work. Why would anyone donate for hash whales to take it all? it makes no sense.

Let's forget the car park attendant for now. Let's hear specific reasons how the c - block could possibly solve any of qrks issues.

The issues as i see them - issues don't essentially mean qrk is broken it means these are areas for improvement. I mean qrk could become the number 1 coin tomorrow if walmart decided to use it. However let's not assume this kind of thing will happen to qrk.

1. no funding for an active developer, no funding for project managers, building services etc.
2. a lot of the qrk investors sit outside of the crypto community and are not involved or supporting the community in anyway
3. qrk is seen to have died off, there is no leadership and no new blood with their btc coming in to qrk. Well, not that is visible through this thread anyway.
4. pow rewards not sufficient to secure the chain
5. competition with funding, larger communities that are drawn by new hype and features extracting btc and support from qrk
6. a fragmented community with no unity.


merge mining with what coin is in the works?  

I didn't notice any community consultation take place so i doubt this is happening anytime soon.


As i say, let's get specific. Let's analyse the possible positives and negatives of all suggestions that have been made.

No point saying the list was made by retards without explaining the negatives. Once you expose the negatives then we can safely assume the list was made by retards but not until then.

Pick any of the points.

POS, Superblock, POB companion coin/ qrk only ipo,  

Then demonstrate the obvious negative effects  each will have on qrk if implemented and why.






sad that we could have done this back in 2014 and are now only considering doing it now. Wasted a golden chance.

qrk was an iconic coin back then.... now it is a forgotten and an example of how not to do a coin.

let's see if we can get it back on track.

FUNDING is key. I see many devs here looking for paid work. Sadly qrk is now worth a fraction of when I first suggested it.

Reliable, honest, level headed people are not easy to find in crypto.

I think they've got to be found and recruited.

It won't be easy and certainly not something to be done overnight.

It's good to see you're still here plugging away.

Cheers

Thanks, yeah great to see some of the old QRk faces back here. What will it take to get the old foundation members back onside. Smiley

I agree. However max actually does seem to have some coding skill set and lacks only time. I think with the correct funding mechanism and milestone reward system qrk can soon get back on track.

Devs that join the team with get bounties for completion of tasks. I think there is no room for trust or paying upfront any longer in this sphere.

Even the name Quark to me is still one of the very best it has a good history and the majority of the coins are locked away by investors for long term brought in from outside that will hold until it goes back above the old 30k mark.

Max seems to agree on the direction. It is now just a case of pushing ahead.

Great work and finally glad to see qrk being brought back.

However it will take a total overhaul and drastic changes to make qrk relevant and exciting as it once was.

We need a plan how to fund and bring on a team of coders to work under the main developer.

Other coins have lately found success by creating a development fund and bringing on coders to complete tasks for bounties.

No one coder can compete in this sphere alone.

Thats always true of anyone holding currency.  I presume that what is meant by investors.   Iam I backing USA because I hold alot of dollars, not really I hold them for my own reasons and if anything Im speculating the dollar will do better then my own national currency and so on.   People hold QRK not as investors but partly to diversify away from their own liability elsewhere.   We all know modern cash is easily not an asset but depreciating and unsafe to hold to some extent, what bitcoin did was allow the whole world to transfer value elsewhere far more easily and hopefully QRK can prove as reliable and gain similarly.
