When some turn to ghosts in October, Qtum continued to push itself out there with our latest research findings to improve our technology for everyone.
Jordan Earls, Qtum’s co-founder and project lead on the x86 virtual machine, has been diligently improving on the x86 design. During the month of October, Earls introduced a token standard framework similar to an ERC20 token in Qtum’s x86; a post on Exposed Formats in Qtum x86; and a Memory Map of the x86 VM.
In addition, Earls published a proposal to allow free UTXO creation in Qtum. The proposal would allow for smart contracts to operate without the need of sending a small unit of Qtum to a certain address and grant it a UTXO.
“The blockchain is incapable of knowing that [your] addresses belong to the same wallet. So, what happens when you choose to send QRC20 tokens to some certain address, but then find out that address has no UTXOs. You will be incapable of spending the QRC20 tokens since you have no way of proving to the contract that you are that certain address.”
Qtum becomes an Amazon AWS Partner
After months of talks with AWS China, Qtum became the first public blockchain protocol to be easily deployed through an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) featured in the AWS marketplace. The partnership will make deploying a node for staking and dapp development almost seamless. We believe this will help developers engaging with Qtum software and will open the platform to mainstream developers.
We hope to grow this partnership with AWS as their clients become more familiar with the Qtum offerings. We see this as a way for enterprise customers to efficiently test use cases and implement them into their operations. AWS has already become the go-to provider for many web services, and ...
