The Quantum Resistant Ledger

Trading
11,604 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.

ECTA
ECTA (Efficient Collaboration Team Autonomous) is the first blockchain-based trust protocol for global employability of developers. The concept, empowered by the proven AI tools, aims to solve the inefficiencies related to the time loss, verification of online profiles, talents discovery (especially in the low-middle income countries) and safe way to conduct business (payment solution with the power of smart contracts). While working on ECTA platform, besides collecting their earnings in ECTA tokens (ERC20) developers are having a unique possibility to earn (mine) ECTA non-fungible tokens (ERC721) as a reward for every task completed - which serve as proof of their skills and increase their reputation. AI component of the platform helps companies worldwide discover and employ these developers in a safe and productive way for both sides.
