Qtum is a Singapore based platform that has one of the more interesting value propositions around. It simply combines the capabilities of Bitcoin and Ethereum by adapting their technologies. It does this by way of bridging both blockchains with compatible adaptations of the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) and the way Bitcoin understands transactions (UtxO) plus bridging their capabilities with their own tech (known as Account Abstraction Layer or AAL), all on top of a Bitcoin fork that serves as the foundation.
There is, of course, more to it than that, but this constitutes the core of how it works. It also has a very neat feature in being permanently backward compatible, a move that will surely set them apart in the future when there is a serious amount of legacy code in the form of smart contracts that does not need to be rewritten and redeployed. Is this the future of Blockchain and crypto?How to buy?
