About Qtum

Qtum is a hybrid platform that combines elements of both Bitcoin and Ethereum.
Qtum was the first to combine the value transfer functionality of Bitcoin (BTC) and the smart contract support of Ethereum (ETH) into a single platform. This allows users to build applications running on a blockchain, while also allowing their creations to transact in a way that's similar to Bitcoin. The QTUM cryptocurrency is used to pay fees and provide governance on the platform.
