I am willing to be involved and my skills are entrepreneurial business management and marketing. I can help with this side of the team as that is where I perform my best.  

What can we do to get started moving ahead? some things that could be achieved this month that are a goal to work towards. I am willing to work.

That's great. I wonder what it would take from this point to bring back the qrk foundation. A lot of the original foundation had great skill in many areas.
Either that or we form our own foundation. I expect firstly though we need to drastically alter the dynamics of qrk itself. Max (the dev) seems open to this but has limited time hence we need to create a funding tax and bring on a team of designers/coders as very successful projects have done lately. With the correct development team a coin can be transformed very quickly.


I've already written about my bias for caution when considering changes and what I think that process might look like so I'll spare you a repost.
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=260031.msg18485718#msg18485718

We've got to start somewhere though, and along with debating important technical changes, we've also got the PR/marketing side of things to consider. Perhaps coming up with a good slogan might be a good "baby step" to get the ball rolling? It would certainly open the door to broader discussions about what everyone thinks Quark should be and where it should be going, which could, in turn, lead into the tech realm. Entrepreneurial business management and marketing are fantastic skills with which to lead up the discussion.  Smiley

I think that we need to agree on some changes to Quark so that we can move ahead with creating funding for development of such change and this will then automatically give me something to work with as far as marketing and generating interest in Quark.
Unless we innovate and move ahead there really is nothing to market as Quark as it stands now is well known and so is a yesterdays coin that has not kept up in the race due to lack of development.

Development creates community involvement and without it we are pissing in the wind.

I need something to work with. Lets discuss innovative change that will move us to a level where we all have something to work with.

The first thing anyone needs to know is that a part time developer working alone has zero chance of success here now.
QRKs main issue was it was a fair pow release with no premine.
I suspect the dev got very few coins and therefore has very limited incentive here.

Funding a dev team is the first plan of action. The main dev here should stay lead dev if he wishes and with funding select the new team paid on bounties for tasks completed as pivx did. I suggested a super block 3 years ago or a block tax. I feel now a block tax is better.
PIVx is not a success by accident. Their formula works very well. We need to emulate something like this but have a timing lock in for masternodes so you can not swap in and out so quickly.

Pivx has a 10% funding tax and working on voting system too.

Of course some of this they took from dash, their algo is quark. They have a team. We need to build a team and have a full time development crew.

Hobby coins are dead coins.

Give quark a good make over 50k per masternode and off we go.

To much talking and no action is why we go from 30k sats to 100 sats.

Quark as it stands now is well known . . .

Can we clearly express in 20 words or less just what that is?

We need a starting point, and if we don't know where we've come from or who we currently are, then I would argue that trying to do anything with that basis would indeed be "pissing in the wind".

Like the old saying goes, "don't put the cart before the horse".

What is Quark well known for?

I would also stress the need to try and frame the response in positive since negative thinking usually leads nowhere.

I will work on my summary description and post later. Hopefully we'll have something to compare.

Cheers,

PIVx  has some great innovation. I was not aware it had the same algorithm as Quark, that makes it a perfect template for the direction we should be heading as they are doing a great job, it's good to see.

So I would like to suggest we implement the 10% block tax, masternode voting system POS/POW hybrid Anonymous option segwit implimentation.

Let's act and make this happen.

They are full POS now I think that is better that way.

Their main advantage is one thing they have a team of dedicated developers. Max if he created this coin has some skills of course but I guess he has a well paid job and not enough qrk to make it viable going full time qrk dev.

We must create a developer fund and bounties and let max manage the development rather than coding it all out himself.

Quark is a famous coin it can come back very easily. As i say most of those that came in with bill will sit outside waiting for profits above 20-30 k sats. These qrk are out of the marketplace until those levels so a price rise to that area will not be difficult with a development team, some direction and even better if we can bring the old foundation members back who had great insight and innovation.

The shaq game was the largest waste of resources we ever did. I mean did that crap every produce anything? for all the money that went into that.

Terrible.

This time we will have a new governance system with voting.#

The thing that pleases me most is to see max is open to this but simply does not have the time to do it all himself right now. We need to assure him if he can simply get the funding tax set up we can get other coders in to help for bounties.

Look a MUE this coin was nothing until they suggested a dash like route and it blew up. I mean it is not even implemented it is just a plan.

We need max to produce the plan and then volume will come and price will come this will fund the development he does not have to do alone.

Max come back and produce a plan on thread please. Even this spoken from you directly would put a much needed boost to the volume /price/ interest.

I respect the work you put in lately and keeping QRK updated.

Please lay out in public a plan to give a radical overhaul for qrk. I know some good devs that will assist you for bounties. This is how PIVx got it all done. One person can not code all that is needed to be a leading coin these days.

Cheers,

You must not have been around Quark in November/December 2013 there were only a handful of crypto coins on coinmarketcap.com back then and Quark had a all new algo and new security features and was CPU optimized as lots could already foresee the mining monopoly bitcoin was heading toward. Quark was the most innovative creation back then.

So I should say that those who have been following this space since 2013 know Quark and Quark is famous. I apologize for my poor use of language, I am an Aussie so slang comes naturally to me. 

Sorry, but I'm not talking about what Quark was. It's not about what it was, and even less so what those of us who were around in 2013 remember it to be. Quark is no longer famous like it was. It's a fading memory for those who remember it.

It's about what Quark is NOW. Obviously the CPU optimized angle no longer works as a marketing strategy. The "all new algo" needs revamping into something like "one of the most secure", for example. What else does it have that can be leveraged into a PR slogan? Still a widely distributed p2p? I think so.

What do you guys have to say about Quark's current positive points? (Reading your posts one gets the idea that you want to throw everything out with the bath water.)

qrk, cbx, wdc, dgb, mec

all the first wave super alts of 2013 are dead

I am totally up for throwing the baby out with the bath water. This coin and all those others are a prime example of total not moving with the times in and industry where moving constantly is key to success.

In 2014 if we have did what i said and move to POS with a built in dev fund and kept the foundation and development team funded you can be sure qrk would not have sunk to this dead level it is at now.

The only good thing qrk had going for it was the novel at the time algo.

It has nothing going for it now except the once famous name. Everything else about it needs a radical overhaul. So radical only a coin swap will take care of it.

Caution has no place in this industry right now except for those that have such luxury like perhaps the top 3 or 4 coins.

There is no point at all qrk just being coin 1001 on cmc going nowhere and getting more and more a distant memory. The only hope is of a collectors coin in perhaps 25 -100 yrs time.

Coin swap and burn to a PIVx type codebase is the way to go. Give it more than 3 months and that will not be worth doing either because every coinn and his dog is now switching to masternodes and POS.

The only hope is to action it now since we do have a developer with some kind of coding skill as opposed to those other coins that are renting journeyman type devs who will not stick to that project.

quark has a few advantages over a lot of these new ones trying to jump on the dash pivx train

1. famous name
2. good distribution
3. a dev that can code and update
4. a good exchange that many dont have btc38  (although we are not on bittrex or polo)
5. many investors outside of this board that are long term investors i suspect many want good returns so they will hold perhaps until 100k sats
6. therefore easy to restore a reasonable cap
7. I suspect some powerful whales. There were 1 million qrk buys at 15000 20000 sats price. I wonder where they are and who is holding them


Plan of action...

1. official announcement we are moving to this updated system - think PIVx but with our own improvements tagged on too.

I would think - tiered POS levels up to that of the level of becoming a masternode depending on coins held and duration of coins held. Also even masternodes could be tiered and get more for uptime and duration of masternode. I'm sure it would not be hard to think of other improvements too.

We need the funding and governance features.

MUE just announced going masternode and their price went from 80 sats to 5000 - that is just ANNOUNCED IT that was just the effect of announcing it not implementing it.

MUE is not quark.

We need a full time dev team. Quark is reduced to this level because of lack of development and community. Where there is no development you will find zero community and interest.

Devs even those with great tech abilities are often the worst at marketing and gaining traction for their creations.

This thread is dead. There are 3 people discussing the future of qrk.

We need a new thread. We need a new coinbase. We need a new dev team and foundation and funding. This dev has skill and can over see all of this but he is hardly ever here and I suspect owns little qrk so has little motivation and incentive. Probably has a great job and isn't going to give that up anytime soon to go full time on qrk.

We need bounties for devs that have done this before on other coins and can just replicate their work on QRK.

Inaction or caution is the death of coins. I'd rather qrk goes to 0 sats and I close my book on it and move to projects that are moving ahead than sit here twiddling thumbs discussing forever the same things I was discussing 3 yrs ago.

Do or die for qrk now. Time is running out.

A reminder for everyone to upgrade to Quark 0.10.

Looking at network statistics on cryptoid, there are very few upgraded nodes.

https://chainz.cryptoid.info/qrk/#!network

/Satoshi:0.9.2.7/   70002   20   55.6 %   55.6 %
/Satoshi:0.9.2.6/   70002   7   19.4 %   75.0 %
/Satoshi:0.9.2.4/   70002   3   8.3 %   83.3 %
/Satoshi:0.9.2.5/   70002   2   5.6 %   94.4 %
/Satoshi:0.9.2.1/   70002   1   2.8 %   100.0 %
/Satoshi:0.10.4.1/70003   2   5.6 %   88.9 %
/Satoshi:0.10.4.2/70003   1   2.8 %   97.2 %

Future changes to Quark will require the majority of the network to upgrade, so please help spread the word.

PoS? So what would you name it then? It certainly can't continue to be Quark if it isn't Quark, can it?



The master-node bandwagon may not have very good horses either. For the moment though, it's getting a big bang for those "taking advantage". Here's another one - they're called Uber-Nodes here.
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1040956.0
Edit: Here's another one I forgot about that'll cost only half of BATA. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=580725.msg18456746#msg18456746


Wouldn't it be easier to just start from scratch? That's essentially what you're talking about.


BTW, DGB is far from dead. They're currently working on SegWit activation in fact.  Smiley (And MEC is still listed on btc38 . . .)

SegWit activation is bringing big price appreciation to the coins implementing it.

Here's a good thread with the coins in question: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1777136.0

Then you can check out their price action on Poloniex or Bittrex or both.

Handsome returns for something that looks to be revolutionary without basing itself on Ethereum like hackable code.

And Quark would stay Quark - one of the safest algos in existence.

Just saying.

We need a full time dev team. Quark is reduced to this level because of lack of development and community. Where there is no development you will find zero community and interest.

Devs even those with great tech abilities are often the worst at marketing and gaining traction for their creations.

This thread is dead. There are 3 people discussing the future of qrk.

We need a new thread. We need a new coinbase. We need a new dev team and foundation and funding. This dev has skill and can over see all of this but he is hardly ever here and I suspect owns little qrk so has little motivation and incentive. Probably has a great job and isn't going to give that up anytime soon to go full time on qrk.

We need bounties for devs that have done this before on other coins and can just replicate their work on QRK.

Inaction or caution is the death of coins. I'd rather qrk goes to 0 sats and I close my book on it and move to projects that are moving ahead than sit here twiddling thumbs discussing forever the same things I was discussing 3 yrs ago.

Do or die for qrk now. Time is running out.



PoS? So what would you name it then? It certainly can't continue to be Quark if it isn't Quark, can it?



The master-node bandwagon may not have very good horses either. For the moment though, it's getting a big bang for those "taking advantage". Here's another one - they're called Uber-Nodes here.

Edit: Here's another one I forgot about that'll cost only half of BATA. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=580725.msg18456746#msg18456746


Wouldn't it be easier to just start from scratch? That's essentially what you're talking about.


BTW, DGB is far from dead. They're currently working on SegWit activation in fact.  Smiley (And MEC is still listed on btc38 . . .)



Quark to me is the name of the coin not the algo. I mean others have said they are using quark algo but I i think it is the name of the coin.

I love the name quark. Many projects take a totally new direction like MUE and retain their name.

When i say they are dead i really mean compared to their former selves they are reduced to dust.

Any of those can make a come back but people want to see a project that is alive and kicking. Sure adopting segwit is good proves they are doing something to stay current.

Some other communities I am part of think of anon and masternodes as fads but these are fads people want. Later if they want something else we give them something else. We follow success that is the way. Keep volume , keep price take a 10 % cut for development and keep moving forward.

When we reach a top 5 market cap  then we can have the luxury of not having to play the latest fad game until it is proven to be technologically advantageous.

I see WDC resisting change in their thread. Another giant reduced to dust whilst those new projects jumping on fads are having 10x the volume and price.

PIVx has retained what they call the quark algo so we could run with that with a few twists.Smiley

Thanks for all the input and offers of support.

Many ideas have been floated here, most of them good. We will have to prioritize what is most important for Quark at this stage.

My feeling is that some kind of POS/POW hybrid would improve the security of the network and should be the first priority.

I would like to focus my time on investigation the technical issues with the different POS implementations before going ahead.

I also support some other ideas bought up here like on-chain governance and master nodes, but this could be next steps.

There are many ways to contribute so please post your ideas here or in slack.

Max, it is very nice to see you back here after all this time. I am definitely happy to see these ideas being seriously considered as concrete next steps for the coin - it at one time had a very rich ecosystem surrounding it, and it would be nice to see that again. I very much look forward to discussing further on next steps and look forward to the necessary changes being implemented. I agree wholeheartedly now, as I did then, that blockchain security is the primary consideration, but would definitely agree with the above commentators that many further additions, such as master nodes, etc should be under serious consideration to be implemented to modernize the coin.

Indeed great to see some old qrk faces coming back. Anyone still have links to any of the other old qrk foundation members?

First thing we could do at once is go for blocknet addition. We are suitable now are we not ? not all coins can be added there as simply as qrk can.

I think it will get more difficult to get added there as time goes on and the effect of being added will not be so great after a time.

Max could you express interest to them in getting added?

I haven't talked to any of them for quite some time, unfortunately. I've been gone from this space aside from a little bit of trading for some time so would have to defer the blocknet question to Max.

Agree - they both worked tirelessly and selflessly for Quark, and their contributions were very appreciated.

 Can we please post the new wallet updates on https://quarktalk.cc/  A lot of new Quarkers go to this website to get information. But unfortunately it hasn't been updated. This is a valuable resource that we should take advantage of and get the word out about the new wallet.

Great news for Quark and what a great coin to innovate with. Exciting times ahead and lots of work to be done. I will be informing some friends of mine of the news today.


Shall we form a new foundation, some of the old members may decide they want to be apart of it again and if so that would be an asset.


I like the enthusiasm, but lets maybe let things grow organically here and work together to slowly grow things and rebuild.

Edit: Part of the reason I say this, is I really believe that Quark was best when the whole community was engaged and active, and productive. Towards the end, the Foundation and Quark Universe were active, however they were doing a huge amount of work behind the scenes, but the rest of the community waited to see what they would do rather than being actively engaged. I think having one leadership group creates a sense that individuals can't possibly achieve what the groups can achieve and creates a bit of divide. I think to work, an active community needs to grow.

the main issue right now is that there is no community left Sad this thread was dead for nearly 2 years and right now there is perhaps 5 people checking in.

If max officially announces an upgrade to a version of masternode POS with a governance system and dev funding you would see quark price rocket and then the community would start to build.

I only hope the right people find out first and make sure they have the motivation to help with the project.

I know a lot of the old foundation dumped and left would be good for them to reenter now and get some incentives to help rebuild.

Primarily we need a team who works under max that is funded by the dev tax.

Getting on blocknet now would also be a good jump start and free marketing.
