Quark has much brighter days ahead and is progressing forward. Looking forward to staking Quark and looking forward to the strengthened network security POS/POW hybrid. Very positive times ahead of Quark I personally believe, but that is just my humble opinion.
Onward and upwards, lets keep moving forward.
Absolutely, there are a lot of good people engaged with Quark redux now. Once the update comes the community can kick-on and get active.
There are unfortunately a few people from the initial phase with unfinished business and a hatchet or two to bury. Their slanging matches tend to be between themselves so I imagine they'll create their own dedicated thread and busy themselves there.
To quote cryptohunter "When we create a new thread to launch the new version of quark please make it self moderated.
Then we can just moderate deliberate trolls out and actually if you ban them from a thread their accounts can be deleted for continued posting in that thread."
There is a good community starting to form on Slack and at the cc site, for those wishing to be involved and do what they can in any shape or form, come and join us.
