The Quantum Resistant Ledger

Trading
11,611 Views
The Quantum Resistant Ledger (QRL) project is a public blockchain ledger designed to be specifically secure against quantum computing (QC) advances. Unlike existing ledgers, such as bitcoin or ethereum, the QRL is specially designed to use a form of post-quantum secure signature for transactions called XMSS. The QRL also uses a low power proof-of-stake (POS) algorithm which again utilises iterative hash-chains and provably secure hash-based pseudo random number functions. The POS algorithm is designed to have zero reliance upon conventional signatures which are vulnerable to a sufficiently powerful QC and allows nodes to run on low power devices such as raspberry PI’s or laptops and passively earn income by staking.

AUGUST 2016 The Idea
Founder noticed investment in QC development, ECDSA being deprecated by the NSA and given the vulnerability in all existing blockchain ledgers conceived the idea of a post-quantum ledger. Creation of post-quantum secure hash-based digital signature library.
SEPTEMBER 2016 Proof of work
Creation of a POW ledger utilising Merkle signature scheme addresses with Winternitz and Lamport one-time signatures.
NOVEMBER 2016 Whitepaper Release
After discussion with developers, post-quantum cryptographers and research into existing roadmap of blockchain technology, the whitepaper was written to provide an overview of quantum resistant methodologies.

DECEMBER 2016 POS
Design of a proof-of-stake algorithm (POS)

MAY 2017 PQ secure digital identification
Blockchain based ultra secure digital ID. Leveraging Ephemeral messaging layer with off chain services: PQ secure data channels, PQ secure comms, PQ secure messenger services, PQ secure VOIP, PQ secure VPN. PQ secure provenance and proof-of-existence services.
JUNE 2017 Public testnet
Node optimisation with C++. Golang node creation. Internode encrypted communication (‘new hope’ lattice-based cryptography)
AUGUST 2017 Genesis block
OCTOBER 2018 Ephemeral
Continued active node development. Completion of Ephemeral to be signature scheme agnostic. Light client development. Light client API to enable apps and web enabled devices to access the QRL. Internode messaging compression. Research and development - post-quantum multi-signature transactions.

Digiwills
Digiwills is a service based on a smart contract that aims to ensure that your digital assets are not lost or fall into the wrong hands. Thanks to the blockchain technology, with this innovative service it will be possible to safely leave all your digital assets. Such as: Access to Cryptographic Portfolios, Exchange, bank accounts, emails and passwords of your social networks and everything that only you have access to. With this service we can leave everything in order for our families to enjoy our digital assets. Decentralized The service will be based on an smart contract in the blockchain, this means that no entity or person will have access or control to the data of the users. Only the users themselves and the successors will have access, once the information is sent to them. Reliable The data will be stored in the blockchain, encrypted with the owner's key. Once in the blockchain there will be no way to alter or read them without the owner’s key. Safe Being a decentralized service, the data will be replicated throughout the network so losing them will be impossible. How it works On the platform, the user will be able to create an account where they can save sensitive data, such as: users and passwords, details of bank accounts or any information they wish to be grouped in blocks (Wills), in the blockchain in a secure way, to these blocks the user can assign successors which will receive the information contained in the block (Will). These blocks (Wills) will be encrypted using the unique key of each user, therefore only the owner will have access to said information and his assigned successors once he meets certain criteria. The service will consume an amount of the Digiwills Token (DGW) daily, as a condition to keep your data retained. If account run out of funds, the system will send the data to successors.
