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!

Nordcoin Mining
Cryptocurrencies, smart contracts and other blockchain technologies are experiencing a rapid surge in popularity. With a major share of the blockchain infrastructure today dependent on consensus protocols based on proof-of-work (PoW), an efficient and intelligent crypto-mining operation is well positioned to take advantage of the ongoing expansion. NordCoin Mining OÜ is based in the IT-friendly Estonia with operations foreseen across the Nordics. The Mobile Mining Container (MMC) technology developed by NordCoin is a self-sufficientself-contained, remote controlled crypto-mining solution designed to overcome the three most significant variables affecting the profitability of crypto-mining: effective hash rate, cost of energy, and cost of space. In total, 30 MMC's will be activated, with an estimated net profit of $45,000 worth of crypto per month per container.

Fan Controlled Football League
Expected to kick off in 2018, the Fan-Controlled Football League (FCFL) reimagines American football – and the experience of being a die-hard fan – for the digital age. The FCFL will seek to deliver a compelling football product that captivates a broader digital audience. It will feature fast-paced, high-scoring action that embraces the spread-football evolution of the NCAA football and NFL games while enabling a diverse set of styles and strategies on both offense and defense ─ all controlled by the fans. Player personnel and real-time play calling decisions are all made by fans via the league’s blockchain platform, making fans the coach and general manager for their team. Fans will no longer be just viewers; rather, they will be active contributors to the games they are watching. This is a transformational shift in the way sports fans engage and interact: no more sitting back and passively watching as a team’s roster takes shape or a game unfolds. They will be essential to the league’s product both on the field and off. This is the democratization of sports, and it’s about to be realized through the most innovative sports league ever created, thanks to decentralized blockchain technology.
