However, before we get into all this, let’s start with our staking results. — October 2022 Staking Results - ● Total Unique Staking Addresses: 1,397 ● Total Unique Delegated Addresses: 289 ● Total Unique Super Stakers: 24 ● QTUM Awarded to Stakers: 41,849 — Community Pulse - We did our monthly Topic and Content contests with our community members.

Let’s go through the top five best answers for this contest. #1 Eigs#8867 on Qtum community “I’m sure the Qtum community really makes itself felt everywhere and is very supportive. I think Qtum is in a great organization in terms of development updates, constant notification of members, and getting people introduced to this project in a variety of ways. I can observe that Qtum is improving day by day. As members of this community, information is transferred from all kinds of places so that we can be informed of the necessary information and updates, this is a good situation thank you qtum team.” #2 julian888#...
September Community & Development Update
Qtum celebrated its 5th anniversary on September 13, 2022! Thank you to everyone who has supported us and will continue to support us in our journey. Let’s find out what all the team was up to in September, starting with our staking results. — September 2022 Staking Results - Total Unique Staker Addresses: 1,352, Total Unique Delegated Addresses: 278, Total Unique Super Stakers: 23, QTUM Awarded to Stakers: 40,498.5, — Community Pulse - We did our monthly Topic and Content contests with our community members.

Let’s go through the top five best answers for this contest. #1 NINja#7039 on PoS vs PoW Overall I think proof of stake is better than proof of work because from what I understand it is a lot faster to complete transactions and it also a lot cheaper because it consumes less power in the process of validation Topic #1: I welcome the Janus project on the Qtum blockchain. I believe that any project that makes it easier to interact with other blockchains would be beneficial and increase greatly the awareness of the awesome Quantum Blockchain. I want to see more bridging dapps #2 sophiaa00#9750 on ...
Into the FastLane
The FastLane hard fork was implemented on mainnet block 845,000 on April 30, 2021, at 5:30 am GMT. Due to the fork, the Qtum’s block spacing got slashed from 128 seconds to 32 seconds. This upgrade didn’t create a new coin since it was only used to update features on the blockchain. — Speeding up Qtum - Speeding up the protocol happened via the following four upgrades: — Upgrade #1: Slashing the block spacing - As mentioned above, the Fastlane fork’s biggest change was the slashing of the average block spacing from 128 seconds to 32 seconds. In addition, the following parameters were adjusted as a result of the reduction in block spacing: Daily block production went up from 675 to 2,700., The expected time to block reward also dropped by 4., The block size dropped by 4, maintaining the theoretical transactions per second at around 70 TPS., — Upgrade #2: Changing the difficulty adjustment algorithm - The difficulty adjustment algorithm for Qtum was adjusted to ensure that the block spacing remains an average of 32 seconds after the speed was increased. — Upgrade #3: Modifying the block reward - The block reward was dropped from 4 QTUM to 1 QTUM. This ensured that the number of newly minted QTUM produced by the network before and after the upgrade remained constant. Not reducing the block reward would have made the system increasingly inflationary. Also, smaller stakers will see block rewar...
August Community & Development Updates
August Community & Development Update - Since the beginning of 2022, Qtum has been extremely busy with various conferences.

Qtum Successfully Combines Taproot With EVM
Qtum combines Bitcoin’s security with Ethereum’s programmability in one platform. One of the most exciting aspects of Qtum is that users can enjoy both Bitcoin and Ethereum updates. One of these new updates happens to Bitcoin’s Taproot. — What is Bitcoin Taproot? - Taproot may go down as one of the most significant upgrades in Bitcoin’s history, along with SegWit. Taproot aims to improve the privacy and efficiency of the Bitcoin network significantly. It will also simplify the creation and execution of smart contracts on the Bitcoin blockchain, paving the way for Bitcoin DeFi. On 21st June 2021, Bitcoin miners signaled their support for Taproot. The upgrade officially happened via a soft fork at block 709,632 on 14th November 2021. — So, what does Taproot do? - Taproot is the collective name given to three different upgrades: BIP 340: Schnorr Signatures, BIP 341: Taproot, BIP 342: Tapscript, BIP 340: Schnorr Signatures Schnorr signatures help improve overall Bitcoin scalability by implementing smaller, more secure, and flexible cryptographic signatures. Instead of the blockchain recording all its participants’ public keys and signatures, Schnorr will now empower the protocol to store a single aggregated public key and a single aggregated signature. This will make the Bitcoin blockchain considerably lighter. BIP 341 — Taproot Taproot introduces Merklized Alternative Script Trees (MAST) to Bitcoi...

Artworks: The sole purpose of these NFTs is art. There are no uses. 2. In-game NFTs: With these NFTs, you can play games and earn tokens. It’s a small introduction to the world of the Metaverse. 3. NFTs created by influencers: These are the most dangerous parts. These NFTs have no use whatsoever. These NFTs have nothing to do with art. They sell completely useless NFTs to their community. When you buy an NFT, be sure to pay attention to what it will do. My favorite NFTs are those used in-game. #2 erlikwindsteel#2839 on interacting with the community Yes, I read ...

10 Days Until the Qtum Hard Fork
With only 10 days to complete the mandatory update of Qtum Core wallets for the hard fork on July 31st, all users of the Qtum Core Wallet should update to version 22.1 as soon as possible. The Qtum Mainnet hard fork will take place at block 2,080,512, approximately 8:40 pm GMT on July 31st (which may be on August 1st, depending on your time zone). The precise block height can me observed at https://qtum.info/ Users of the Qtum Core Wallet, or operating the Qtum Core Wallet as a node or blockchain interface, must update to version 22.1 (https://github.com/qtumproject/qtum/releases) as soon as possible, then the new features for Taproot and evmone will be automatically activated at block #2,080,512. This mandatory update only applies to the Qtum Core Wallet, not any other types of Qtum wallets. This update will add Taproot/Schnorr signatures, a new Ethereum Virtual Machine evmone, and bug fixes. See the release notes at https://github.com/qtumproject/qtum/releases/tag/v22.0 If users of the Qtum Core Wallet fail to update to version 22.1 before the hard fork they will temporarily lose control of their coins, and staking wallets will not receive mainnet block rewards.

More Qtum (#QTUM) News
|Technical Analysis: GALA Climbs 16%, Qtum Leads Tuesday's Bulls
GALA was one of Tuesday's big gainers, as cryptocurrency markets were once again trending upwards. Overall, the cryptocurrency market capitalization is around 4% higher as of writing.
On Tuesday, crypto markets were green across the board, as traders once again re-entered the marketplace following the uncertainty caused by the tensions between Russia and Ukraine.
Gala (GALA) was one of these bulls, climbing by as much as 16% earlier in the session, however it was qtum (QTUM) which led today's gainers.
QTUM/USD, which was trading at a low of $6.33 on Monday, climbed to an intraday high of $8.15 earlier today.
Today's move came as the price of QTUM rallied from support of $6.35, all the way towards resistance of $7.90 and beyond.
However, as prices hit the recent ceiling, profit-takers began to liquidate their positions, which led to QTUM falling from its high.
This came as price strength also found some resistance, with the 14-day RSI hitting its ceiling of 56, an area which has acted as a point of uncertainty in the past.
Some bulls are likely to still remain in QTUM/USD, in hopes that a breakout of this resistance will take prices above $9.
As the majority of the crypto top 100 was trading higher on Tuesday, finding a bear was no mean feat.
Tuesday's biggest loser, relatively speaking, was symbol (XYM), which fell by close to 0.70% on the day.
The price of XYM/USD, which hit a high of $0.1782 yesterday, fell to an intraday low of $0.1725...
