Hi everyone!

I just wanted to update everyone as its been a little while and there have been several updates in the Quark landscape recently.

First of all, the Quark Android Wallet was updated by Hashengineering on June 21st - check it out here:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=hashengineering.quarkcoin.wallet&hl=en


Secondly, BTC38 has elected to shut down their entire BTC trade pair section as they felt that there is too much volatility with BTC as well as the uncertainty related to a potential upcoming hard fork per their communication - HOWEVER this has now meant that Quark and the other coins in this section have now been moved to direct trading vs Chinese Yuan (CNY; http://www.btc38.com/trade_en.html?btc38_trade_coin_name=qrk), which has played a role in the recent price rally we've seen.


Lastly, after a couple of setbacks, we now have been working with the pacatum coding group (http://btc.pacatum.com/) and they have worked diligently to complete the lions share of the coding related to the coming update which will change Quark from POW to Hybrid POW/POS. In addition to this, they have also included masternodes into this codebase update! The code has been submitted to our github (https://github.com/quark-project/quark) and is now currently in testing. I will keep people updated in the coming weeks regarding the progress on this, along with the a timeframe for the planned hard fork which will be required to complete its implementation. Importantly, this update will change the inflation rate in order to adequately pay the various stakeholders in the ecosystem - ie. miners, stakers and masternode holders, and will add a development fund. Although not yet fully delineated, the likely breakdown will be approximately 1.5% POW, 1.5% POS (split between masternodes and POS stakers), and 0.5% development. These values are approximate and I will also update once these are finalized.


Do you think these updates would lead to Quark being listed on more popular exchanges?
I believe Bittrex are pay-to-list.

Certainly that is in the plans. I'd like concrete details on the update and finalized code before approaching them though. In the meantime, BTC38 is actually a nice high volume exchange and do in fact have an english trading site. Our current 24 hours volume is 336 BTC, 99% of which is from their site (https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/quark/#markets).

This in fact is good and bad.  But simply put, if investors are interested in Quark, than there is a market for this coin.  Proven by the spike in investors. MOVE FORWARD!

Ace.

Yes, I agree good and bad - I wish that the BTC trading pair on BTC38 had been kept alongside the CNY. However, this is a good thing for Chinese investors, so overall a good thing I think.

Re: Moving forward. I totally agree and we will. The team is also aware that we need to restore confidence as witnessed in the last several pages of this thread - I am being careful with my updates and actions to have concrete footing for making statements. The update is being tested right now and I'd imagine in the next couple weeks many of the bugs will be dealt with and we can finalize specifics. I'd like that to be done before we make any big moves - this update for me is crucial, as it restores network security to Quark and in my mind deals with the major failing of the initial protocol.

This sounds great.  And I'm sure I speak for more than me when I say thank you for this kind of update and level head you most obviously have! lol!

Moving Forward,

Well, the original design etc was done 3 years ago. We can look at updating it further in the future once we have development funding implemented for sure. For now its serviceable.

Hi all. We are trying to change the old outdated non related Twitter account on coinmarketcap social link to the official Quark account https://twitter.com/QuarkPress

Could everyone please make the effort to submit a request form to www.coinmarketcap.com to have this changed. If we all make the effort it will happen.



Done.

The request form link is at the very bottom on coinmarketcap for anybody looking for it.

Will there be coin swap?

It is true that the Quark Wallet for android has been updated by Hash Engineering (as that is me).  Many users have reported several problems such as freezing screens and on older android devices the app never syncs with the Quark Blockchain (meaning it takes forever).  For instance on my own Android 4 and 7 devices (app installed on June 21) it has been nearly two weeks and it is only at block 3 million.  This could be fixed with an update to the app by building a checkpoints file.  Unfortunately, building of the checkpoints file (requires downloading the blockchain from a client on the same machine and saving headers to a file) is also taking forever on both of my development machines.  Based on my own work, I don't know if new users can get this app to work.

If Quark is changing to a POW/POS hybrid that will definitely break the app if it isn't already broken.  The app will not support any POS blocks.  As soon as one is included in the blockchain, the app will reject it and the app will be stuck on the previous block.  Fixing that will require a ton of work (it has been done by the peercoin developer), but it requires a special block explorer (also made by the peercoin wallet for android developer).  Hash Engineering will not be doing this upgrade.
 

The bottom line is that given this knowledge, users should transfer their coins from the Quark Wallet app to other addresses maintained in other Quark wallets.


In the near future I will be taking the Quark Wallet app off the Google Play store to prevent new users from losing coins.

But is it possible for the right bounty?

Depending on the success of the qrk come back right now in progress could you do this if required for the right reward?  How much would you have to do from scratch and how much could we borrow from ppc?

Sure the right bounty can fix it.  However, the special block explorer is not something that I do.  Many have asked for POS wallets for android and none have provided a working block explorer for the app to use.  This project will require several expert developers.
