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!

AVOTEO
AVOTEO makes crowdfunding and investing both rewarding and fun. The team builds a crowdfunding platform with an integrated talent pool. Holders of the AVO token will have the right to vote on the projects they want to be funded. The most voted projects are then selected on a regular basis and get funding from a funding wallet, which is filled by a 10% transaction tax (4% funding pool, 3% redistribution, 3% liquidity). Financed projects assign company shares to AVOTEO in return and AVO holders will participate in the success of the projects. Crowdfunding platform Present your projects and apply for funding or vote for projects and participate in their success. All you have to do as an investor is to vote for projects you think are promising. Additional financial contribution is not necessary, as the winning projects are funded from the funding wallet. Talent pool Find potential team members as a project owner or offer your services and find projects you can participate in as a professional. Voting Not only can AVO holders vote on projects they want to be funded. They also have a say in the future development of AVOTEO itself. Community Interaction, a platform that is fun to use and a supportive environment for projects are further core elements of AVOTEO.

Mega Token
Aiming to provide everyone with equal access, less partiality, and greater profitability, Mega Token, with the ticker symbol of HPW for Hash Per Watt, has initiated the tokenization of the electrical and mining capacity of cryptocurrency mining farms. Each token will equate to 1 watt of low-cost electricity from the capacity of cryptocurrency mining farms and is inclusive of all costs related to maintenance, human resources, overheads, and system and equipment upgrade. With its comprehensive knowledge in cryptocurrency mining, TGA Co, the owner and custodian of this token, began its operations after carefully studying and selecting Asian countries which provide electricity at a low cost, but also have the potential to generate green energy. This was to ensure sustainability, prosperity, and sustainable development, as well as the commitment to reducing the environmental impact of cryptocurrency mining, and eliminating geographical inequalities to make the industry more profitable. Through utilizing smart contracts, decentralized schemes, and the latest equipment, assets, and knowledge, Mega Token has provided everyone with the possibility of decentralized participation and collaboration in the world of cryptocurrency mining.
