Does this article make sense? We will wait for the official announcement of IOTA, but, it is interestin for a good conversation.
““Q” brings distributed computing to the IOTA protocol with JINN processors (or emulators). It scales horizontally, benefiting from the global computational power of all other JINN devices (or emulators).
So what is a “qubic” as he mentions above? I’m not 100% sure, but I’ll take two guesses:
1) A qubic is a unit of measure defining your available computing power available to the network
2) A qubic is a Q-compatible node able to accept payment for it’s work done in the distributed computing community
This opens brand new doors for blockchain, tangle, mining, IoT and more — no longer being limited by the sequence of computations of your own (JINN) processor, but rather able to tap into distributed computing, with minimal latency.”
