The Quantum Resistant Ledger

Trading
9,325 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.

Roobee IEO
Roobee is an investment platform that allows you to fund in any projects with an entry threshold of 10$: users can invest in IPOs, ETFs, the venture capital investment market, real estate, cryptocurrency assets and much more. This project at the was supported by crypto-whale on pre-IEO stage he invested 4.5mln$ in the development of the platform. MVP is already working - the total amount of transactions in the Roobee network exceeded 15 million dollars, all the evidence is on the site (roobee.io). The first round of IEO at Bitforex was closed in just over an hour, 100btc+ were raised. Thanks to the collected 4.5 million dollars, product is being developed and money in further IEO stages are raising for obtaining licenses and product scaling. Roobee plans next IEO on EXMO at 4th June.

Planport
The current supply chain industry is a $64 trillion market that employs millions around the world. Planport is building a decentralized business-to-business platform for the supply chain industry and our initial product focuses on procurement and its components. Procurement is one of the core sectors of the supply chain industry. It involves buying of goods and services that enable organizations to carry out their day-to-day operations. Someone involved in procurement may be responsible for sourcing raw materials from suppliers globally and bringing them into an organization by working with C-level executives, finance and engineering as well as external suppliers. While procurement is a vital aspect of operations, the process has critical problems that are costly for all businesses from small companies to big corporations. The obstacles include legacy systems with inefficient and closed networks that are expensive, risky and time-consuming, cash flow problems that take weeks or months, contractual nightmares, poor supplier management and closed and centralized access to goods and services. A company spends 30 to 70% of its revenue on outsourced goods and services, yet many still underinvest. The Planport Platform powered by the PORT token aims to solve these problems by unifying the entire procurement process end-to-end and empowering enterprises and suppliers using a decentralized business-to-business network in the supply chain industry. Buyers and sellers can use the platform for procurement, auctions, payments, and contract management. At the end of the supplier and buyer interaction, our invoice marketplace enables suppliers to push invoices to a network of global investors where they can access a diverse range of funders. This marketplace is built on the Blockchain distributed technology allowing participants to have a secure and efficient way to settle trade finance assets in the $3 trillion factoring industry. Planport, as part of Planport Platform, has built and is building the following products: Planport RFX - a procurement product for buyers and sellers. Planport Supplier Manager - a product for enterprises to communicate with and assess suppliers. Planport Auctions - a product for performing reverse auctions with multiple suppliers. Planport Payment Systems - a payment system empowered by the PORT token for business-to-business payments. Planport Contracts - a full contract management product for creation, storage, and discovery of contracts. Planport Experts Networks - an on-demand network of supply chain experts for enterprises. Plnaport Invoice Marketplace - a trade finance network for suppliers. Planport will revolutionise the supply chain industry by building a platform that streamlines the processes and is built on trust, mutual benefit and user-centric as part of the Web 3.0 by using the Blockchain technology.
