Block chains for commercial applications
The hierarchical design brings more flexibility to the quantum chain block chain. The same block chain is compatible with multiple virtual machines or intelligent contract running environment.
Widening the smart contract ecosystem
Quantum chains will revolutionize the way people recognize, develop and use intelligent contracts. The x86 virtual machine pioneered by the quantum chain will make the next generation of decentralized applications a reality - developers can use a variety of mainstream programming languages to develop intelligent contracts.
The distributed autonomous protocol initiated by Qtum quantum chain can realize real-time adjustment of block basic parameters (such as block size, block spacing, Gas price of intelligent contract operation, etc.) without bifurcation. In addition, Qtum's team is working on Lightning networks and payment channels, which are expected to speed up the processing of quantum chain transactions to 20,000 pens per second.
Interest proof consensus mechanism
Qtum quantum chain adopts the consensus mechanism of proof of rights, and any number of nodes holding QTUM in the network can participate in mining to help maintain the security of the whole Qtum block chain. Currently, Qtum's consensus mechanism is based on PoS 3.0, which modifies part of the incentive model and enhances platform security by sharing block rewards.
De centralization network
Both the choice of consensus mechanism and the support of Simple Payment Verification Protocol (SPV) embody the concept of Qtum quantum chain as a decentralized network, which guarantees decentralization while bringing intelligent contracts to all users, even to light wallet users in low bandwidth environments.
