Qtum (pronounced Quantum) is an open, permissionless blockchain and ecosystem that combines security-aspects from the Bitcoin-protocol together with the “programmability” of Ethereum. Which enables well-known security properties from the UTXO-set from Bitcoin. Also enabling the possibility of building robust decentralized applications, smart contracts, DeFi-products, and Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT). Instead of using the energy-intense Proof-of-Work (PoW), Qtum uses Proof-of-Stake (PoS) to secure its blockchain and is seen as a more sustainable option for the future. (For example, Ethereum is now migrating from PoW to PoS). For more information, please visit: www.qtum.org
