Qtum has finally announced the date of the long-awaited project, known as Qtum X86 Virtual Machine. QTUM is considered to be one of the biggest “opponents” to Ethereum network, given the fact that this digital asset represents a smart combination of Proof-of-Stake, Ethereum Virtual Machine smart contract based on the principle behind the first original coin, Bitcoin. Thanks to this superb combination, the team is now presenting one of the greatest achievements of the QTUM team – Qtum X86 Virtual Machine.

Qtum Sets the Date for the Launching of Qtum X86 Virtual Machine

Qtum makes up for one of the most prominent representatives of the blockchain technology. Designed into an incredible combination of Ethereum Virtual Machine smart contracts, Bitcoin’s principle, and Proof-of-Stake protocol, this crypto is considered to be a direct opponent to Ethereum platform.

Qtum additionally stirred up the market with the latest announcement they have made about the upcoming Virtual Machine that should be live presented tomorrow, on May 23rd.

The country of choice where the project will be presented in is South Korea.

After its main net has been out and running for quite some time now, the next step was creating its own Virtual Machine. This project should further on revolutionize the way smart contracts are being operated with, meaning that it should change the way decentralized apps are being created and deployed.

What is Qtum X86 Virtual Machine?

Qtum X86 Virtual Machine is a smart contract operating software that is designed to enable easily deployable decentralized applications.

What makes this smart contract software superior in oppose to its peers is the fact that  X86 allows developers to work in numerous different programming languages, that way supporting more programming languages than any blockchain-based virtual machine by far.

The machine will allow developers to make contributions to the blockchain community in many different languages, which included Python, C++, Rust, Go and many other.

This way, Qtum is making the deployment and design of decentralized applications more available to developers, given the fact that it supports more programming languages, that way enabling a greater number of developers to make contributions by creating Dapps.

So, now, besides form having QTUM as a highly scalable platform which is able to make faster transactions in oppose to the majority of its peers, including Ethereum, Qtum has made Dapps and Dapps deployment easily available to a wide range of developers that would be soon able to use Qtum X86 Virtual Machine for creating all sorts of decentralized applications.

The initial project will be presented live in Seoul in South Korea, on Wednesday, May 23rd, and this event is planned to be an invite-only event where only a handful of chosen will get to see the Qtum Virtual Machine in action for the first time ever before it is officially launched for the public.

The presentation will be held as a part of a meetup scheduled for the mentioned date.

How is Qtum doing at the Current Moment?

Ranked as the 20th-best currency on the global coin ranking list Qtum makes up for one of the top coins both in the market according to its market cap, and by its technological capabilities.

Following the latest trend in the market, we can see that the majority of currencies trading down against the dollar while going down in the red zone, with QTUM making no exception.

For the past two days we could have seen the majority of coins dropping against the dollar, however, it seems that Qtum has gone down in the red in most of its charts, including 60-day, 40-day, and weekly charts.

That is how we can see QTUM going down against the dollar by -21% in the period of the last 60 days, while it can also be seen dropping against the dollar by -20% over the period of the last 30 days.

During the course of the last two weeks, QTUM has gone down by -28% while it traded in the red during the last week where it dropped by -14% against the dollar.

We can see QTUM dropping today as well, following the most recent market trend, while dropping against the dollar by -5.27%.

Following the latest change in the market, QTUM can now be traded at the price of 15.62$.

Qtum is currently way out of the range of its previous all-time high that was set back at the beginning of January when QTUM was traded at the price of around 103$ per one unit. It is pretty clear that Qtum is still pretty far from its all-time high, even though it is clearly moving forward from the technological point of view.

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…
