Swarmio Platform
The new platform will harness the power of Ubique’s decentralized gaming platform, the Swarmio.

Q Network
Just so you know, Q network works on the distributed network principle which routes the data to the point of need on the real-time basis using a host of interactive applications, latency optimization techniques, and artificial intelligence. Q node is the core dApp on the Q network that allows anybody with excessive computing resources to rent out their capabilities by converting their standard computers into micro-data centers. These data centers can then function as a hosting game server, audio-video servers, or internet of things servers.

How does Q network work?
When there is a demand from the user to run an application, smart routing technology of Q network selects the data center and then run the application on-demand by processing the information on user location, type of application, etc. Elaborating on the vision of the company, Karthigesu said that they want to establish a hyper-connected network where users can easily onboard their personal devices and easily connect them with other users’ devices to have an interactive and immersive experience. He also noted that all the future advancements across the segments would use the decentralized network which will be collectively owned and managed by the global community.

Q network project
Q network is a project that started in 2015 and took three years of development with a total investment of $7 million shared by the Canadian government and various venture capitalist firms. Now the company is planning to bring an initial coin offering with the aim to decentralized technology and tokenize its business model. Revealing the strategy, Karthigesu said that the company is now moving its Swarmio application and Q network to blockchain in a bid to decentralized technology and tokenize its business model.
