Very busy, but good. Qtum is now developing an X86 virtual machine which, in my opinion will revolutionize the blockchain industry.

RE: Wallet wont restore. Program shuts down when I go to restore
Here is an old chat where Brett helped someone. Maybe it will help you as well....
How do i add connections ?
go into your debug window
then go into console
then type: addnode 220.127.116.11:3888 add
it should say "Null" if it works
wait a few minutes, that should give you your 9th connection
addnode 18.104.22.168:3888 add
This should give you another connection
How many connections is healthy? 8?
will allow you to share your nodes with others
Yes, addnode 22.214.171.124:3888 add
The 8 main nodes are hardcoded in the wallet
Should i type all node?
yes add them all

RE: Ether and Bitcoin
Lol When I asked this question, it was before any wallets were available to the public yet. I wasn't asking what Qtum was because I knew what it was, but good explanation of Qtum ;)
The Best quick amd most updated explanation of Qtum by Qtum's lead developer and Co- Founder
Since I've done this elevator pitch so much at Consensus, here's the 1 minute rundown.
Qtum is a smart contract platform built on an independent blockchain. This is similar to Ethereum. Right now we have the Ethereum virtual machine working on our platform, which means you can write solidity contracts like Ethereum, but run them on a different underlying blockchain. Where we differ from Ethereum is that we are focused on bringing smart contracts to mobile and IoT devices. We are also already proof of stake, and have been since the mainnet launch in September 2017. This means we aren't burning an entire country's worth of electricity just to compute some useless magic numbers. Our future direction is two things: First, the x86 VM. This virtual machine will allow for you to use C++, Rust, Go, etc, to write smart contracts. This opens up the mindshare and hiring pool to include a whole new sector of people. Our other future direction is making an enterprise version of Qtum that will exist alongside the public blockchain for companies to use where a public blockchain might be impractical, or where they need customizations. Futhermore, x86 will tie into the enterprise version as well to allow for these companies with accounting code from the 1990s to actually take that existing code, make some modifications so it works in QtumOS, and then their accounting system is working within a smart contract. And finally, the last piece of this huge puzzle is a decentralized governance protocol that basically allows us to easily scale and adapt to a changing external world without requiring a fork. This component will be a first class citizen of the x86 VM so that smart contracts and Dapps can include a proven and stable governance system with very low cost, and configure it to meet their needs exactly.
