Are you saying that `qtum` and `qtum-core` are the same software?
In which case, - as i think you're upstream too - pick one of the names.
The other will be removed as it is effectively a duplicate.

That's not how this works. If the sources are available, which they are, this package should build from source.
If you do not want to do that, this orphan request is the correct method to give someone else the chance to do so.

You can then *in addition to that* create a qtum-bin package which may pull the official binary release.

That's in regard to the AUR package, not the actual software.
It's effectively unmaintained given that someone has notified you *on 2018-03-28* about this exact thing.
