The primary spherical of the Qtum Full Node Incentive Program accomplished on Might 16th, and the crew want to thank everybody who participated and to point out our gratitude, we are going to ship out 2 Qtum tokens to every collaborating Qtum deal with. The subsequent spherical will begin inside days of this launch, June eighth to be precise, and it’ll run till the eighth of July (UTC +8). We gathered quite a lot of solutions from the neighborhood and made a number of adjustments to the format.
There have been 96 whole prizes in Spherical #1, however Spherical #2 could have over 800 prizes!
We hope to perform a number of targets with this program; training, additional decentralization, a enjoyable neighborhood occasion, and additional consciousness of the Qtum blockchain. In a really decentralized blockchain atmosphere, anybody with an web connection and a tool ought to be capable to validate transactions, even when they maintain no tokens.
World Full Nodes Incentive Program Outcomes
A couple of weeks again once we began this program we requested neighborhood members so as to add to our decentralized community by permitting their computer systems or units to confirm transactions on the Qtum blockchain, and in return, we might have a fortunate prize draw each few hours. We had envisioned a small, considerably technical group of individuals participating in constructing out new nodes onto the Qtum community — however our neighborhood got here out robust and our small ‘techie’ program had tons of recent customers following nice community-sourced guides on getting a node on-line, establishing firewall guidelines or in some circumstances, operating a node through AWS.
We had 96 winners, with one winner being picked at random roughly each Eight hours. There have been 1799 registered IP addresses with some operating a number of, absolutely linked nodes over the course of the complete rewards program. There have been additionally supplied 5 prizes for five stakers who obtained a block reward with the smallest UTXO dimension (so, even when not participating in this system, somebody might need discovered they received 50 qtum!)
Wanting on the information and speaking with neighborhood members, we all know that some individuals spent a bunch of time getting their networks configured for a Qtum node or have arrange AWS situations to run their very own node and be a part of the Qtum community. It was fairly cool to see individuals studying not solely about how Qtum works, however how — in some circumstances individuals discovered how their very own web service labored or tried a cloud service for the primary time.
