The Quantum Resistant Ledger

13,244 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.

The Quantum Resistant Ledger ICO
Screenshots taken 4 Feb 2018
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)
JANUARY 2017 Node
Prototype node development with basic POS algorithm and integration of XMSS signatures
FEBRUARY 2017 Node
Design and launch of the first iteration of the block explorer
MARCH 2017 Private testnet
Iterative testing of POS algorithmic updates
APRIL 2017 Alpha testnet
Launch of the Alpha testnet with nodes running on MacOS, Linux, Windows on hardware including Raspberry Pi. Private seed presale round opens.

MAY 2017 Early access token presale
If hard cap not met then public ICO May 24th. Start of integration of Ephemeral messaging layer to enable end-end secure data channels.

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.

NOIA Network
NOIA Network utilizes Segment Routing, IPv6 and Distributed Ledger technologies to create a global Software Defined Network (SDN) on the public Internet. NOIA’s Programmable Internet allows ISPs, Data Centres and individual infrastructure providers connect to Distributed Ledger and sell their infrastructure as internet transit. Segment Routing allows programming of data sent over the internet to use predefined routes, solving internet reliability, scalability and BGP security issues. This can be done through NOIA Platform which is World’s First Programmable Internet Backbone As a Service.

Centric
Centric is the world's first dual-cryptocurrency payment network. Its innovative and unique concept is engineered to achieve breakthrough as a reliable form of payment. The first token, Centric Rise, is the network's transactional currency - it steadily increases in price hourly in accordance with immutable price blocks set publicly one year in advance. The second token, Centric Cash, is pegged to the first and will freely trade on major cryptocurrency exchanges. The exchange between the two tokens is governed by a decentralized protocol that self-regulates token supply to meet ongoing changes in demand. In combination, the two token relationship solves key problems experienced by first generation cryptocurrency projects. On one hand it offers a reliable store of value; on the other, it provides upside incentive to join the network required for mass-adoption.

NiMEDix ecosystem
NiMEDix ecosystem is the much-needed disruptive solution in the African Health Industry. It is a unique medical ecosystem designed to decentralize the health sector in Africa using Artifcial intelligence (machine learning) and the blockchain as a tool to disrupt and provide accessible, quality and adordable health care. NiMEDix allows direct interaction among consumers, insurers and service providers to improve health care access, reduce costs and streamline payments, regardless of whether it’s a patient, employer, insurer or government agency making a healthcare payment. We are seeking to improve care outcomes through effective coordination and eliminate much of the cost of redundancy, inefficient administrative policies, waste, abuse and fraud from the system.

WINBIX
Тhe WINBIX marketplace aims to create a new channel for sales, allowing participants to sell goods at the demand prices at any time. The system uses the reversed auction model. The price of the goods decreases until one of the participants stops the auction. The first buyer who stops the auction wins. The target Project audience shall include: - Sellers – small and medium intermediaries/manufacturers who cannot afford to bear the costs of organizing and maintaining online sales. Further, the marketplace will be useful for companies wishing to occupy a niche among customers with a limited income level (the target audience of bulletin boards, joint purchases); - Buyers – people with average and below average income having to combine an acceptable consumption level and limited financial resources. The audience ready for time-consuming costs in exchange for the option of obtaining a satisfactory price offer.
