What is Qtum?
Qtum (pronounced "Quantum") is an open-source blockchain project designed to combine Ethereum’s smart contracts with Bitcoin’s blockchain. Its aim is to allow for the development of faster and more secure smart contracts and decentralised applications on a business-friendly blockchain.
Developed by the Singapore-based Qtum Foundation, Qtum is a hybrid blockchain application platform that aims to bring together the best parts of the Bitcoin and Ethereum projects and to facilitate interoperability between the 2. Its core focus is on the business applications of smart contracts, with an aim to introduce a wide range of organisations to blockchain-based solutions that increase efficiency and reduce costs.
The Qtum platform is built on a Bitcoin core fork, chosen for its simplicity and stability, and then an account abstraction layer that includes multiple virtual machines that contribute different functionalities. Headlining these is the Ethereum Virtual Machine, which gives Qtum the ability to create its own smart contracts.
QTUM is the native token of the Qtum network, and tokens are required to use Qtum apps and the Qtum blockchain.
