We’re releasing the Quant Overledger Business Paper in:
Enable connection between blockchains
Create a platform for multi-chain applications
Connect the Internet to Blockchain through Overledger
The major limitation of modern-day blockchain is the inability of blockchains to communicate with one another. Consider this: why can't a smart contract executed on Ethereum be recognised by the Hyperledger blockchain?
Not since the Internet itself has a technology shown such promise and elicited such excitement than blockchain technology. The potential of blockchain technology seems limitless. The world's new smart economies along with dozens of start-ups are using blockchain technology for everything from global payments to music sharing. It is predicted than in the next few years, much of our digital consumption will be run via a blockchain foundation without us even realising it. While the potential of blockchain technology might seem endless -there are certain limitations.
The major limitation of modern-day blockchain technology, identified by the Quant founders, has been the inability of blockchains to communicate and working with one another i.e. lack of interoperability. In order for blockchain technology to unlock its true potential, it needs to allow seamless communication across multiple blockchains as well as recognition of transaction across blockchains. Consider this: why can't the smart contract include code executed on other blockchains as part of its process?
Enter Overledger -the first interoperable blockchain operating system that facilitates internet-scale development of decentralised, multi-chain applications.
Overledger has the ability to unlock and distribute value and applications across current and future blockchains.
Overledger is an agnostic platform that connects the world’s networks to blockchains and ensures you’re not limited to any single a vendor or technology.
Overledger is the only platform that facilitates the development of internet-scales development of decentralised, multi-chain applications.
Overledger will address the major limitations of current blockchain technology and unlock its true potential. Overledger is set to disrupt every industry.
Empower businesses with the flexibility to connect their network to blockchains without burden of being locked into an existing technology or vendor.
By facilitating multi-chain interoperability, Overledger will enable businesses to access new markets, increase resilience, and de-risk investments.
Facilitate human-to-human and machine-to-machine trust that ensures safe and secure transactions with one another.
Provide individuals with a level of access and control of their personal information we’ve never experienced before.
Significantly increase the security, privacy and interoperability of health data.
Revolutionise global health information exchanges (HIE) by making electronic medical records more efficient and secure to the benefit of individual patients as well as the scientific and healthcare community.
Deliver solutions for governments that minimize the bureaucracy but enhance transparency and collaboration between governments, business and citizens.
Provide the opportunity for collaboration between the public and private sectors that were never thought possible.
Overledger is not another blockchain. It's the 'over ledger' that sits on top of block chains providing a meta-gateway.
London-based Quant Network is set to revolutionise blockchain technology with the development of their blockchain operating system Overledger. The experienced team are determined to fulfil the original vision of the internet by creating an open trusted network for people, machines, and data to operate securely and safely.
