The Quantum Resistant Ledger

Trading
13,627 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)

Gluon
Gluon’s platform establishes an interconnected network of vehicles where individuals and businesses can monitor, track, tune, and diagnose the issues in them. Not only can customers diagnose their vehicles themselves, order parts, and request bids on repairs, but they can schedule repairs, send/receive payments for services and goods. Consumers can tune their vehicles for optimal performance and/or regulate their use.Repair shops can diagnose vehicles more cost-effectively and accurately order the correct parts. Vehicle service record, repairs, diagnostics, smog tests are all stored in the Gluon secure blockchain based on the Stratis Platform.
