Strategic update: The Sleeper Must Awaken

Today, crypto is so much more than just a peer-to-peer value transfer, with DeFi, NFTs, DAO’s, DEX’s and more coming into the space over the last few years. The market capitalization has exploded and blockchain technology is on the verge of entering the mainstream.

QRL, being well into its 7th year of existence, is changing with that, introducing smart-contracts for programmable assets, and Proof-of-Stake as a more efficient and robust consensus mechanism.

Important changes to project governance and funding will soon be announced. The first step of this will be a public grants system aimed at supporting: core development, research, education and documentation and for the first time, community.

More can be read in our Sleeper Must Awaken blog.
