I agree with your concept of people being apart of the whole community in a perfect world scenario. But we are far from being in a perfect world and if we have all learned one thing during this crypto evolution, it that people will and do stand by and watch other people and wait to see rather than being actively involved. This is partly due to not being able nor comprehending the tasks at hand that require  attending to but mainly due to lazy human nature.

This is why we have seen the progressive emergence of masternode governance and block tax to fund the developers to give consideration to the work and achievements performed. Without this consideration it is impossible in our current human nature to perform and innovate as we all demand consideration for our time. This is truth.

I would love to see the organic growth of this community. But I also understand that passiveness in this space will not be tolerated and we will be eaten up and left behind. We need an aggressive take the bull by the horns, lets make it happen today mentality and innovate continually into the future.

We can always be an open source lets get everyone engaged community and I love this concept. But this is the "Purist" mentality much like the "Purist Proof of Work Mentality" we all love proof of work but we know without the network being viable to mine it does not matter how "secure your algorithm is" without the "INCENTIVE"   again   "human nature" its going to come to the same negative conclusion, not because of the technology, but because of human nature. This is why I believe POS/POW hybrid is the way forward as it gives us a remedy.

Lets get busy.

  

My first couple posts may have seemed a little esoteric/purist, but I am definitely a pragmatist.

I totally agree on the issue of block tax, etc to fund development and for individuals to earn profits from masternodes, etc. I also agree on the POW issues and the lack of funding for the miners - the network hashrate fell along with the block rewards decreasing, as would be expected - which meant that the network security was put at risk. I agree that everyone acts in self interest and I strongly believe that in order to make a viable system you need ways in which you can self fund, encourage development and encourage re-investment into the coin and community. If the only way in which you can spend your coins is to purchase items/services externally, and there is no incentive to reinvest money into the ecosystem, then there is a constant draw of money out of the coin, which then results in collapse. This notably creates a scenario where the only way to realize return on an investment is to encourage/find additional buyers at a higher price point.

I agree that a lot of work needs to be done, and innovation is the way forward - I think my point was more that establishing a guiding central governance body this early might stifle people from getting involved. I'm all for people taking leadership roles and taking the bull by the horns to get things moving forward.

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.

See my other response - totally agree that community building requires some incentive to become involved, and something productive to do with the coins rather than have their value exit the system. I am all for masternode POS, dev funding, etc.

The old foundation really didn't have many/any coins to dump, at least the one I was a part of. We all entered at around the historic high - which meant that we were all self financing the development work as there was no development funding aside from some donated to the foundation, the value of which shrank quickly. This scenario wasn't tenable which is why I am completely on board with a shift to a self financing model for the coin as part of the necessary rebuild.

Re: Blocknet - sounds like a good idea. Why don't you reach out and see if they're interested?

How much would be the minimum to get started again? Any order of magnitude?

Not sure I understand your question? Just to be clear - I'm not asking for any money, nor for any sympathy, etc. I'm simply discussing the economics and realities of what happened 3 years ago as a means of trying to start a discussion on how to best avoid the same issues from recurring.

I would love to see nothing more than for Quark to return to its place among the leaders in the field - it was always my intention when I was working on it in the past to try to establish something enduring.

This team of developers seem like the perfect fit for the changes that need to be made to Quark http://cryptocoderz.com/index.html
They have just been through it with changing Quark algo to POW/POS hybrid and that experience can be utilized and we should definitely seek to contract these guys and Max oversee as head developer.

I have sent them a letter expressing our move forward with POW/POS hybrid and have asked if they are willing to be contracted for development of such. I will let you know when I hear back from them concerning this.

this is a couple of their Quark Algo blockchains.

http://cryptocoderz.com/020london.html

http://cryptocoderz.com/espers.html



Very interesting - one of the major issues we had back in 2014 is that we had a tonne of great ideas that we simply didn't have the manpower to execute. I was talking with cryptohunter, and he let me know about the fact that there are now a lot more developers to hire to help out with projects. This really makes a great deal of difference to have this sort of backup for Max. If we can shift to a self-funding model, this could ensure that there is constant self development and innovation, and takes a lot of the onus for development away from being placed on one man's shoulders - most people in this space, at least when I was active, were doing this is their spare time, and its difficult to shoulder the full load I'd imagine.

I have upgraded the wallets (v0.10.4.2 64 bit). 
I have just noticed that I have found a block from the pop out window. However, the available and pending balance are still 0!
Any reason?

Some of it was good (the people that I worked with were tremendous people that were committed to furthering the project for the betterment of the community), and some of it was.. difficult. I think its worth a revisit if it can be built up again with talented and committed people behind it.

The advantages we have are

1. quark is a famous coin with lots of history.
2. quark has now gone from zero to hero and zero again - the distribution now is wide and i think a great majority was on btc38 too so lots of interest from all over.
3. quark does have a real coder designer as captain
4. the quark algo is already used and modified to pos and governance models and works perfectly...although still some work to do
5. a LOT of quark is gone from this market until 20k sats or greater. Bill brought in many outside investors and whilst qrk was 10-30k volume was huge for back then and these are the types of investors that are used to waiting years for returns but will not sell at a loss.
6. if we can reform the quark foundation and get max to come in on this we have some of the most inventive leadership ive seen here before.



when a coin is large and has been famous before and revolutionary for its time it is totally acceptable and infact almost inevitable it will make a come back. This is also a powerful force.

We need to get a road map put out sooner than later now....i too believe time is the biggest factor here.

Just announcing and they still have not done it...MUE went from 100sats to 5k sats.

Quark needs to announce a road map right now if we are going to do this. Qrk should have never been reduced to what it is now ever in the first place.

Being the shittiest pump and dump coin doesn't sound like an advantage to me.

One person's actions account for much of that - many people put a lot of time and effort into this that were hurt by those actions as well, myself included, although I'm not without blame either. At one point I was answering up to 100 emails probably a day and worked very hard only to see my own investment dwindle to a fraction of the original sum. I learned from that and moved on. However, I do see some people here that may be able to contribute to this yet and make something worthwhile.

I haven't seen this myself. Make sure the blockchain is downloaded before starting mining. Maybe you can post an extract from your debug.log when this happens again.

I have upgraded the wallets (v0.10.4.2 64 bit).  
I have just noticed that I have found a block from the pop out window. However, the available and pending balance are still 0!
Any reason?

I haven't seen this myself. Make sure the blockchain is downloaded before starting mining. Maybe you can post an extract from your debug.log when this happens again.


The blockchain is up-to-date.

Sorry if it is a wall, I can edit

Nothing in the log extract to indicate that it found a block. It will log "proof-of-work found" if it found a block. I will try to see if I can get the same to happen, on which OS are you running?

Looks like you were mining on an invalid chain. Sometimes when the wallet says its synchronized it still needs a few minutes to get in sync. I'll see if I can find the source of this issue.

Trust and Communication – The Keys to Successful Teams

Today, with business competition, customer expectations, new technology, and many other developments, it is more critical than ever to build teamwork in your organization. The many challenges that your organization faces, the more critical it becomes that teamwork is effective. The key elements to successful teamwork are trust, communication and effective leadership; a focus on common goals with a collective responsibility for success (or failure). However, without trust and communication the team will have difficulty functioning effectively.

The whole process of organizational teamwork must begin with a company leadership team that creates a business strategy and a focus on the critical goals of the enterprise. Next there is the process of communicating the vision, values and mission of the organization to a team, or teams that will be responsible for planning and executing the mission and building trust in the teams and within the teams to carry out their assigned responsibilities. Marketing plans, as well as other operational plans, will succeed only with team-based planning and execution.


Five Key Elements to Managing Teams

As explained by Patrick Lencioni in “The Five Dysfunctions of a Team”, senior executives, middle management and assigned team leaders, must foster and expect that team member activities include the following characteristics:

1. Trust among team members
Building trust takes time. If trust is lacking it must be the responsibility of the team leader to focus first on building trust, i.e. getting team members to open up (among the team) and expose their weaknesses and fears to each other. In some cases, a team building exercise can be utilized. In certain business cases, due to time pressures, the leader may have to take responsibility for building trust or change the team to achieve the necessary level of trust for team success. Until everyone is willing to trust the other members of the team, progress towards team success will be limited.

2. Prepare to engage in debate around ideas.
Disagreements can lead to conflict, but conflict can be good. If ideas are not presented and debated, the team will miss opportunities to find the best solutions to problems. Respect for the thoughts and ideas of the other team members will be developed through healthy debate.

3. Learn to commit to decisions and plans of action.
Team results will only come about as a result of team commitment to team decisions, this includes agreeing on the specifics of action plans. If some team members are not consistent with their commitments, the team will not succeed.

4. Hold one another accountable against their plans.
Team members must be prepared to check among themselves to assure progress and overcome obstacles to progress. Ad hoc meetings may be necessary to coordinate actions between departments or groups to assure progress.

5. Focus on achieving collective results.
The vision and/or mission of the team must be accepted by all the team members and critical goals viewed as the collective responsibility of the team. If a return to profitability is a critical goal of an executive team, priorities and time commitments must be pulled from elsewhere. Focusing on results that in any way does not support the critical goal(s) of the team will lead to team failure.

Mr. Lencioni’s diagnosis is helpful in understanding team dynamics. Yet, a straight forward prescription for building successful teams is to A. Build attitudes of trust among team members, B. Communicate openly among team members, and C. Focus on common goals that are related to a clear purpose. The purpose, of course, must be based on the business vision, values and mission of the company or, at the very least, the specific mission assigned the team by company management.


Well, I think you know me and what I think. I don't agree with radical algo changes, and less so when talking about PoS, but let's see where Max's research takes him before jumping to conclusions. One thing I'll promise is that even though we might not agree, you can always trust me to tell you exactly what I think. Wink
