Since the advent of blockchain, fascinating projects and solutions have sprung up, but most crypto projects are guilty of being ecosystem independent, and run parallel without any possibility of integration. Qtum (QTUM) is a global project aimed at bridging the gaps between cryptocurrencies.
Qtum provides a sort of meeting ground for different cryptocurrencies and blockchain models, and provides solutions that can be executed on any computing or mobile device. This article will look at some interesting new developments as relating to Qtum.
Qtum (QTUM) to Bridge Blockchain’s Gaps
Under the moniker of blockchain, a host of cryptocurrencies and companies have brought enormous solutions and developments to the market. Qtum’s next big major project is aimed at bridging the gaps between blockchains. Its aim is building a blockchain where all the components lacking in the respective blockchain models of existing blockchain models are embedded into one.
A blockchain model that would comprise interoperability functionality, decentralized like Ethereum, smart contracts at its best, interconnectedness, greater scalability, and all the best blockchain has to offer. Think of this like an all stars blockchain.
Merging the best of blockchain models would be a difficult project, but once completed, Qtum would have created an ideal cryptocurrency, and perhaps, the blockchain of the future. On completion, this super blockchain will benefit multiple industries, creating practical business implementation opportunities and a new blockchain economy mode.
A Major Collaboration with Vanywhere
Vanywhere, the live skill-sharing platform that instantly connects people seeking and offering skills announced a major collaboration with Qtum. The Vanywhere marketplace runs on the smart VANY token, which adheres to the Qtum QRC20 token standard, and the collaboration is aimed at creating a better platform to face real world scenarios in terms of speed, security, and cost.
New Social Media Applications on Qtum
The social media blockchain project, Mithril, at the beginning of the month announced plans to develop new social media decentralized applications (DApps) on Qtum. Qtum looks to leverage its Bitcoin core with Ethereum’s smart contracts, Qtum features to provide strong technical support for Mithril.
San Francisco DApp Development with Qtum and Bodhi
The Qtum team will be visiting San Francisco for a conference, in the course of the conference, a prediction market DApp built on Qtum. The conference is slated for Thursday, March 15, 2018 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at Bespoke – Level 4 Westfield San Francisco Center.
It is an open conference and interested people can bring questions for either Qtum or Bodhi developers. Speakers at the conference include; Jordan Earls, Qtum Co-founder and Lead Developer, John Scianna, Qtum Marketing Director, Xiahong Lin, Bodhi Founder, and Frank Hu, Bodhi Tech Lead.
Status and Price of Qtum (QTUM)
As at the time of this writing, Qtum is 19th on the cryptocurrency ranking (by market cap), hosting $1,445,860,689 (USD) and is trading at $19.56 apiece after dropping 8% in the last 24 hours.
In a Nutshell
Qtum (QTUM) has shown clear purpose and drive since its introduction into the market, a reason why it is tagged “The Blockchain Made Ready For Business.” Qtum is seeking to revolutionize the face of blockchain by providing solutions compatible with all existing blockchain models, a great challenge, but one that would engrave Qtum on the history stone of blockchain.
