“Qubic is still a work in progress. This website is meant to give the IOTA community and the wider public a comprehensive overview, to better understand what we are working on, and to help convey the enormous scope of the Qubic project.”Moreover:
“Quorum-Based Computation. Qubic is a protocol that specifies IOTA’s solution for Quorum-Based Computations, including such constructs as oracle machines, outsourced computations and smart contracts. In the long term, Qubic will allow people to leverage world-wide unused computing capacity for a myriad of computational needs, all while helping to secure the IOTA Tangle: an IOTA-based world supercomputer”.See why people may be confused? For all the details, check out the Qubic website, here- https://qubic.iota.org/ So, in short, IOTA seems to be responding negatively to the launch of Qubic, that is because at the moment, Qubic isn’t ready. Instead, this announcement pins down a new direction for IOTA, the production of a globally accessible supercomputer. It sounds fantastic, but trawl through the website and you’ll come out feeling a little baffled by the language and the scale of this. What now? Well, IOTA will recover from its trajectory, and soon enough, we might see a more concise description of Qubic surface. It looks to be a very exciting time for the IOTA team and thus, IOTA investors too. Let’s give it a bit of time to allow this to settle before we come back. One thing is for sure, this is the start of something very unique indeed.
