Qtum is a decentralized blockchain application platform that was built with stability, modularity and interoperability as top priorities. It utilizes the Bitcoin Core infrastructure merged together with an inter-compatible Ethereum Virtual Machine system in its blockchain (which uses a Proof-of-Stake consensus), providing users with the strength of Bitcoin and the intelligence of Ethereum’s smart contracts. The hybird nature of Qtum natively supports various internet-connected devices. With a strong focus on connecting existing businesses with blockchain technologies, Qtum offers a variety of features, such as custom token creation, standardized agreements regulated by smart contracts and decentralized application building, inside of its ecosystem. Being backwards and cross-platform compatible is also important to the Qtum team.
Qtum (QTUM) is the native token of the Qtum ecosystem and blockchain.
