Proof of HODL Quantstamp Video

00:00 Hi, this is Richard Ma, the CEO of Quantstamp.
00:03 And in this video, I'm gonna introduce proof of HODL.
00:06 Okay, all right, so here we go.
00:09 So this is HODL, I want to put on the y-axis and this is time.
00:18 Okay, so now when we start the token sale and we release the tokens, HODL is gonna be a hundred percent.
00:33 But as we know, our program, we're trying to do proof of caring, we want to you know get real supporters on board but some are not real supporters, they're fake cobblers okay, so this line, you know, as as we release the tokens, it's gonna decrease and I think what will happen is that we're reached its true hollow.
00:59 Okay, so at this point, these are the real HODLers, okay so this is a true HODL line.
01:06 So what we're gonna do is as we track all the contribution addresses, you know for the true HODLers, once we reach this line, we release a bonus and then over time, we release another bonus, and then we're going to hold special events.
01:35 So that is the Quantstamp proof of HODL program, thank you very much.

ICO Review: Quantstamp (QSP) - Protocol for Securing Smart Contracts

00:00 Hi everyone, this is Victoria from crush crypto dot com.
00:03 In this video, I'll be covering a highly anticipated blockchain project known as Quantstamp.
00:07 The company is building a foundational technology that aims to protect users and investors for scalable proofs of audits.
00:13 Please note we are not paid or mandated to do any of our reviews, this is just our personal opinion and analysis and not investment advice.
00:21 Quantstamp is a security verification protocol for smart contracts that improves the security of Ethereum.
00:30 They claim to be the first scaleable security audit protocol that can find vulnerabilities and Ethereum smart contracts.
00:36 The advantages of their protocol include automation, trust, governance and the ability to compute hard problems over a distributed network.
00:43 Currently, the cost of smart contra auditing starts from $5,000 and takes at least a week to complete.
00:50 Quantum's goal is to lower the cost to as low as $10 per audit with the audit delivered within minutes after submitting the smart contract.
00:58 Quantum security verification protocol consists of two parts, an automated and upgradeable software verification system that checks solidity programs and an automated bounty pay off system that rewards human participants for finding errors in smart contracts.
01:13 The Quantstamp team will be developing the following, the Quantstamp validation node, a heavily modified Ethereum clients, the security library which contains code that performs automated checks and validation smart contracts that handle bounty payment voting mechanism and governance.
01:28 A security library may also be developed to support languages other than solidity.
01:32 This here is a diagram of Quantstamp security audit engine which takes an unverified smart contract, performs the automated security and vulnerability checks and produces a report.
01:42 So how does Quantstamp works?
01:46 Let's say a developer wanted to deploy a smart contra written in solidity on Ethereum.
01:50 To minimize the risk of funds being lost due to vulnerabilities, the developer can submit his or her code to a security audit via the Quantstamp Ethereum smart contract.
01:59 Depending on the security needs of the program, the developer can decide how much bounty to send.
02:05 The smart contract receives the request and on the next Ethereum block, validation nodes perform security checks to validate the contracts.
02:13 A report is done which classifies issues based on severity, with one being a minor warning and 10 being a major vulnerability.
02:20 When requesting an audit, the developer can choose to have a private report which is encrypted and accessible only by the developer, or the developer could choose to have a public report in which case anyone will be able to access a web portal to review the security report.
02:35 Quantstamp was founded in June 2017.
02:38 In July, they built a solidity static analyzer prototype, days after the parody wallet hack.
02:44 In October, they completed a semi-automated audit for request network.
02:48 By the end of this year, they plan to complete three more semi automated audits for other companies.
02:52 In January of 2018, they plan to build the Quantstamp validation node which is an Augmented Etehreum node.
02:59 In April, they will deploy the system to the test network and begin an academic review of their system.
03:06 In August, Quantstamp will release mainnet version 1 and in October they will add their insurance alpha product to maintenance smart contracts.
03:13 Quantstamp is raising funds in a crowd sale by issuing QSP tokens.
03:16 The pre sale which is based on proof of caring is happening between October 4th to November 7, 2017, with three tiers of bonuses.
03:26 The exact date for the public crowd sale has not been announced yet but is planned for sometime in November.
03:30 Quantstamp has set a hard cap of thirty million dollars for their ICO at a conversion of one ether for five thousand tokens.
03:38 The total token supply is one billion and a maximum market cap on a fully diluted basis is 46 million dollars.
03:45 This chart here shows how their tokens will be distributed.
03:47 65% of the tokens will be for the ICO, 20% of the tokens are for the team and advisors.
03:52 The tokens for the founding team are on a three-year vesting schedule.
03:56 This chart here shows how they intend to use the proceeds.
04:01 50% will be used for product development, while 30% will be used for marketing and community.
04:05 Please check out at Quantstamp website for the most up-to-date information on their ICO and the launch date for their crowdsale.
04:11 Quantstamp tokens are used to pay for, receive or improve upon verification services.
04:17 This here is a list of the various roles in their ecosystem and how each of these roles interact with QSP tokens.
04:24 The governance system is a core feature of quantum security verification protocol.
04:29 The validation smart contract is designed to be modular and upgradable based on token holder voting via time lock multi-sig.
04:36 As QSP tokens are being used and rewarded within the Quantstamp ecosystem, the more usage the prodigal has, the more valuable QSP tokens will become.
04:45 Quantstamp currently has a core team of seven people, most of the key team members studied or are currently studying at the University of Waterloo in Ontario Canada.
04:53 The CEO, Richard Moe, was a former algorithmic trader and a quantitative trader.
04:58 The CTO, Steven Stewart, was a former software developer and was also a computer systems analyst at the Department of National Defense of Canada.
05:07 Advisors of Quantstamp include Allen Chang, director of engineering at Facebook, dr.
05:12 Vijay panache, computer engineering professor at the University of Waterloo, and Lincoln, the chief of staff at civic.
05:18 What are some of the opportunities?
05:21 Quantstamp already had a successful audit with request network which was a smoothly run ICO.
05:25 This speaks well to the team's capability and blockchain development and smart contract auditing.
05:31 Right now smart contracts are unsecured by default.
05:33 They need to go through an expensive and prolonged audit process to be verified and this has been hindering the adoption and usage of smart contracts.
05:41 Quantstamp is a good candidate to tackle this problem and help propel blockchain and smart contract adoption.
05:47 Even if their software has limited functionalities in the early stages of its development, it can still prove useful for manual audits, potentially saving the auditors a lot of time.
05:58 In their telegram group, Quantstamp indicated that they will be buying back their tokens if prices dropped below the ICO price, these tokens will be put into reserve which the team can release in the future.
06:09 This indicates to us that the team is quite confident in their own projects.
06:12 And a few concerns we wanted to note.
06:16 The project is still in its early stages of development.
06:18 According to the white paper, the mainnet release won't be happening until August next year, which is nine months after the end of the ICO.
06:24 Based on their bonus structure, presale participants could receive up to 100 percent in bonuses which could be viewed negatively by other participants.
06:32 Investors are becoming more cautious with ICO that had large presale discounts of bonuses, as presale participants are willing to sell their tokens and a much lower price than crowd sale participants.
06:43 For example, even if QSP tokens dropped a 25% below the ico price, those who received a 100% bonus could still generate a 50% return.
06:52 And we believe that smart contra audits cannot be fully automated as human judgment and input is required to understand the logic and the intent of the smart contract.
07:02 Software can spotm bugs that caused the contracts to malfunction.
07:06 Before example, you may not be able to detect errors that cause coins or tokens to be sent to the wrong person or detect that a wrong formula is being used to calculate the payoff in a smart contract.
07:17 The problem that Quantstamp is trying to solve is an important one and they may face other competitors.
07:22 Etherparty, Blockcat and Agrello are focused on making smart contracts easier for people to use without the need for technical knowledge.
07:30 They aim to lower the cost of smart contract development which could help propel adoption of smart contract technology.
07:35 Quantstamp has focused more on security verification but they may not be the winner in the space as the smart contract creation tools if successfully developed, could be securely audited and updated within their own platforms.
07:47 In any case, the market may be large enough for several players to thrive and Quantstamp may be able to cater to more sophisticated or unique smart contracts.
07:55 Overall, we have a neutral view on flipping.
07:59 As you can see in this table, public crowd sale participants are contributing 63% of the hard cap or 19 million out of the 30 million dollars.
08:08 However, because of the bonus structure, they are receiving only 54% of all the tokens that are being allocated to ico participants.
08:15 So unless you get in during the pre sale, we believe it is not attractive for short-term holders to contribute into the ICO.
08:23 Of course, the ICO market could change dramatically by the time the crowd sale begins and our view right now is based on the current market environments.
08:29 For long term holding, we have a positive view at the moment.
08:34 We believe the project has a lot of potential and if Quantstamp is successful, they could have lower the cost of using smart contracts and drive launching adoption forward.
08:42 With a team showing their competency by successfully auditing request network, we believe the project has a good chance to gain traction once their protocol rolls out.
08:51 Thank you very much for watching our video on Quantstamp.
