The concept of a peer-to-peer internet ledger of value, recorded as a blockchain and secured by proof of work was rst reported in 2008. Bitcoin remains the most widely used cryptocurrency to date. Hundreds of similar cryptocurrency ledgers have been subsequently created but with few exceptions they rely on the same elliptic curve public-key cryptography (ECDSA) to generate digital signatures which allow transactions to be varied securely. The most commonly used signature schemes today such as ECDSA, DSA and RSA are theoretically vulnerable to quantum computing attack. It would be valuable to explore the design and construction of a quantum resistant blockchain ledger to counter the potential advent of a sudden non-linear quantum computing advance.

November 2016
White paper 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. The Winternitz OTS+ and Extended Merkle Signature Scheme (XMSS) were identified as the optimal solutions. This investigation also revealed the necessity of QRL to stand alone as a network with interoperability in the later pipeline.
December 2016
Design of a proof-of-stake algorithm (POS) commenced
January 2017
Prototype node development with basic POS algorithm and integration of XMSS signatures
February 2017
Prototype node development with basic POS algorithm and integration of XMSS signatures
April 2017
Launch of the Alpha testnet with nodes running on MacOS, Linux, Windows on hardware including Raspberry Pi. Private seed presale round opens.
August 2017
Node optimization with C++. Inter-node encrypted communication (‘new hope’ lattice-based cryptography)
December 2017
Not willing to compromise a launch with an immature PoS protocol given how much value the project currently carries — and more importantly how much value it will hold in the future, QRL announces a move to temporary Proof of Work model.
January 2018
Proof of Work public testnet is released to the public
February 2018
The introduction and solidification of variable key heights and signature space allows us to ensure future compatibility with almost anything. Our blockchain now includes the possibility to upgrade signature schemes (XMSS, SPHINCS, + future) and through an address format update, support different cryptographic hash functions (SHA2_256, SHAKE_128, SHAKE256 etc).
March 2018
Our internal code review also compliments the more general internal security review we are currently in the process of conducting.
March 2018
Audit Completed by red4sec with x41 doing a secondary audit for further scrutiny.
June 2018
The QRL Main Network is officially Live!

Gistcoin
Gistcoin is a utility token for all influencers, coaches, speakers, trainers, podcasters, streamers, musicians, artists, exerts, professionals, brands, and content creators from all backgrounds who create content on the GistHouse Audio Conversation Network and who have communities in other Social Media Networks. We believe that a decentralized token system allows for all creators, including creators from underrepresented groups, to have direct access to their fans and monetization methods HOW THE GISTCOIN POWERED PLATFORM WILL ACTUALLY WORK Here is a brief step by step description and visual presentation of how the concept behind GISTCOIN and GISTTV will work when finished. • Content Creators, their communities and Users register and interact on GistHouse Platform (and other Audio Platforms that adopt the Gistcoin as a monetization token for their network. • Content Creators are rewarded or compensated by the Audio Network for creating content and engaging users and their community on Gisthouse global community. Users and community members are also rewarded with Gistcoin for activities carried out on the platform (i.e., inviting friends, attending rooms, etc) • Content Creators can charge Platform Users and Members of their Audio Network community some tokens for access to for their premium or exclusive contents Content (merchandize, courses, books, special sessions, recordings etc • Users make payments through the portal wallet for content of their choice using GISTCOIN (which can be purchased by fiat money or other currencies available on the platform exchange for those who do not have GISTCOIN)
