  • QRL
    Block sponsor

    The Quantum Resistant Ledger (QRL) is a future-proof post quantum value store and decentralized communication layer which tackles the threat Quantum Computing will pose to cryptocurrencies in the coming years.

    This is backed by a provably secure, peer-reviewed signature scheme that utilizes Winternitz OTS signatures deployed in an Extended Merkle Signature Scheme (XMSS). Based on the understanding that popular means of current encryption (such as ECDSA) in the cryptocurrency space are vulnerable to a quantum computer running Shor’s algorithm, QRL is addressing what will be a singular threat to the security of cryptocurrency going forward – the inevitability of quantum computing.
