"Question for AMA: Is Quant involved or interested to join the DTCC (Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation) who are experimenting with DLT at the moment? 15 banks just joined them (Barclays is one of them)."
No I don’t believe we are currently involved and yes, theoretically we would be interested. We’d have to do a bit of research into it the experiment with DLT to understand exactly what they’re trying to achieve, how all the parties are working together etc.

Question(s):

"Would love to see a 4 part series of blog posts introducing the different layers of the Overledger, somewhat of a dummies guide - to compliment the technically demanding whitepaper"

"Would love to see a 4 part series of blog posts introducing the different layers of the Overledger, somewhat of a dummies guide - to compliment the technically demanding whitepaper"
Yes - we are working on that at the moment. Post Nov 20 we will have a lot more on the front - just need to let the tech team focus on preparing for the launch then we will release more content both for less technical but also tutorials for the devs etc.

I can’t share much at this stage, I’m afraid.

Question(s):

"What if the bank decides for whatever reason not to announce the partnership with Quant Network, and other clients also want to keep the partnership secret, how is Quant Network planning to prove to other potential new clients that Quant Network has successful clients already - coming from non-business people, can you elaborate on this situation?"

Making a public announcement vs confidentially sharing case studies with other clients are two very separate things. One does not negate the other.

Question(s):

"In regards to Quant X - What is meant by supported by News UK? Is that a media partner? Or is it just the venue?"

Answer(s):

They are providing the amazing venue. We are excited to have the chance to be at such a prestigious spot. We have also invited a broader list of media to attend which does also include the news UK outlets but it’s not exclusive to them.

Question(s):

"What are curent clients doing in regards to the access licence / token? - Are they buying tokens on the current set of exchanges?"

Answer(s):

Luke
"What are curent clients doing in regards to the access licence / token? - Are they buying tokens on the current set of exchanges?"
I may have to defer that to my colleagues and come back to you but from what I understand - yes, the enterprise developers are using the interim exchanges to secure their tokens. As Gilbert has mentioned previously, we are planning an OTC option for enterprise clients. we will share more info on that in due course.

Answer(s):

Sir William
Will quant X be live streamed?
I have a call with the AV team this afternoon so will let you know. Obviously we can always just live stream from a mobile device but we are just trying make sure we have the best audio visual for both the livestream and the video content that we with then edit down into smaller pieces.

Question(s):

"Further touching on exchanges - we noticed a new listing on ExChain recently, did you guys organise this listing and is it included in the '2/3' expected before year's end?"

"Further touching on exchanges - we noticed a new listing on ExChain recently, did you guys organise this listing and is it included in the '2/3' expected before year's end?"
Not entirely. Essentially if it’s a major one that we have been working on for a while - we’ll issue a press release about it.

Question(s):

All seats are filled for quant x. What companies are coming or what sectors are the majority for the event?

Answer(s):

Sir William

We actually added a few more last week because we thought we should factor a 30% drop off so there are still spots for anyone who might have not signed up. We have a variety of sectors from health, govt, fintech, etc. plus also sector agnostic devs and architects etc.

Question(s):

"Could Monday 26th Nov’s AMA be a YouTube stream (or similar) for the team to run through the QX slides and take questions from the community live? This would be good for (a) briefing the community, (b) chance to answer questions we’ve been thinking about since QX and (c) team can update us on what’s happened since QX e.g. new contacts, news, follow ons etc."

Great idea - should be possible. I’ll check with the team and make sure they’re available.

How impressed, and is this for december?

Answer(s):

BOMBASA
How impressed, and is this for december?
To clarify - you *should* be impressed by our entire body of work and what we have achieved in a short space of time and how far we have exceeded our own goals and timelines for things and how that will continue - that’s all.

Question(s):

"Are you thinking about attending consensus 2019?"

Answer(s):

We are thinking about it. This year it conflicted with the ISO meeting so just have to make sure no conflicts again etc. once we have confirmed all of our major events - we will share.

Question(s):

"After Quant X - will you guys look at releasing info and targeting the 'wider' Crypto community more so with news etc? Currently, the focus has been enterprise driven (understandably) but the Crytpo space can help to bring awareness faster and attract new developers. Are there any plans in this area?"

Absolutely. We have multiple stakeholders from crypto to devs to enterprise - and we engage with all of them in different ways. We will always continue to test new ways of communicating with all of our stakeholders. And by test I mean try it, assess the results and weigh it up and decide how to proceed. I suspect this might be a little to other crypto projects

We can’t announce when we will announce something. It will be announced as soon as we can. You’ll just have to stay tuned.

I may have to have the team come back on that one - as it’s a bit of a longer answer as there a few different ways.

Question(s):

No worries at all, a lot of the questions I have left get slightly more technical, want me to fire away - or hold off for next week?

Luke

I will actually submit those technical questions like the one you shared on MApps questions to be answered during the QA portion on quant X - good questions.

Question(s):

Colin tweeted about the potential for Overledger to help solve some of the Irish border issues that will be thrown up by Brexit. Can you tell us if the team been in touch with anyone in government in relation to this?

Yes - Gilbert mentioned that he had met with HMRC. You should be confident that if we go to the effort of tweeting about something we would obviously be pursuing a lead and opportunity too 😊
