Qtumis a merger of Bitcoin and Ethereum’s technologies that targets business applications. It also uses an efficient PoS system to increase the efficiency of network transactions.
The underlying technology uses an “Account Abstraction Layer” that acts as a bridge between the Ethereum Virtual Machine and the Unspent Transaction Output model of Bitcoin Core. This gives the network Bitcoin’s reliability while enabling the development of smart contracts and distributed applications (DApps), similarly to how it works on the Ethereum network.
The development team believes that Qtum’s applications should be easier to develop and that they should also be more secure than those on the Ethereum network. They further believe that the industries that will benefit most from its platform will be mobile telecommunications, counterfeit protection, finance, industrial logistics (shipping, warranty, etc), and manufacturing.
