IOTA’s secrets and the big “Q“
The full article was originally published by Markus on Medium. Read the full article here.
It is doubtless that in recent weeks more and more speculations have flared over when IOTA’s mysterious project “Q” is finally released. This speculation was certainly fueled by members of the IOTA Foundation itself.
“Q”? What is that anyway. At this point I do not want to repeat the same things that you can find in detail about a search on the net. But for those who are new to IOTA, or have not been concerned with speculation about “Q”, here is a very good link that summarizes the basics.
For those who want to read it directly, I have translated this German text as an attachment in English.
As already mentioned, these rumors were accelerated by statements from IOTA members. For example David Sonstebo repeatedly mentioned:: “Q is one oft he biggest, if not the biggest things to occur to IOTA project.“
and that “Q“ is coming in Q1 2018.
All this has led the IOTA community to believe that “Q” has something of a world-changing dimension, and that the IOTA course will rise very very high. “To da moon”, is a synonym of it.
Regarding IOTA’s courses, after the hype last year, the opposite is true. The courses fall in the wake of Bitcoin. Also, no major announcements have been made so far this year. One exception, and this is not to be underestimated, is the partnership with Bosch and Volkswagen. This was celebrated in a huge way at the Bosch Connected World 2018. Especially the strong partner Bosch, who is involved in the Internet of Things globally, can have unforeseen effects on IOTA and the way to a global protocol.
Currently, it can be said that both the developers of IOTA, as well as the founders, work very hard on the coming things that give IOTA before other cryptocurrencies unique features. This would be the starting point for IOTA as the global standard protocol, not only for use in the Internet of Things.
