The Quantum Resistant Ledger

Trading
10,022 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.

DECEMBER 2016 POS
Design of a proof-of-stake algorithm (POS)

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.

GoldeNugget
GoldeNugget is an existing reality, with over 3,000,000.00 Euro’s already invested in West Africa for earth moving machines for the gold industry. Where you can really feel the dust, the noise, and the smell of business. Where people really have an objective, where people really see actual results in their hands at the end of the day. Call it “Old Economy”, however this business was once the actual value of money, the same money that still today allows you to purchase bread. So why not unite an old dirty but real business with new innovative industry such as Crypto in Switzerland where purchaser can rely on a predictable legal framework. GoldeNugget is the combination of decentralized blockchain technology and the most antique, reliable, value increasing and stable asset: GOLD! GoldeNugget is the first Crypto platform that allows it's ERC-20 Token (GNTO) holders to purchase or Dutch Auction it's Mined Gold. Goldenugget is the first Crypto platform that allows its Token (GNTO) holders to purchase or Dutch Auction its Mined Gold.

Insure Network
Our goal is to innovate an inefficient industry and disrupt expensive incumbents through a strategic rollout and adoption of a blockchain platform powered by smart contracts and artificial intelligence (AI). Transparency is immutably anchored deeply into the system and on the platform with the integrity of data provided by the fundamental feature of the blockchain. With significant reduction of costs in verification and networking processes, provision of transparency, good intents, and the collaboration of hidden key talents around the globe, we intend to create a brand-new designed insurance marketplace in a decentralized fashion that fairly incentivizes every player on the platform. Policyholders will no longer worry. Adopting incumbents or contributing actuaries will be awarded with higher profit than ever. Investors will be happy as well. Join our fight to change the economic landscape for insurance and medical care so we can create this triatomic beneficial ecosystem that will provide both protective and fairly priced policies for current and future global citizens.
