Qtum is a cryptocurrency platform that enables decentralized applications (dApps) and smart contracts to be developed and utilized. These dApps work on mobile devices, and is compatible with most major blockchain ecosystems. Smart contract creation on the Qtum platform can be done using several programming languages that are supported by Qtum's x86 Virtual Machine. The Qtum platform uses their own Decentralized Governance Protocol (DGP) that enables blockchain setting modification through the use of smart contracts.
From march 12, 2017 to March 17, 2017 Qtum held their initial coin offering (ICO) selling approximately $15 million worth of their Qtum (QTUM) cryptocurrency.
