In the Press

Quantum computing is set to be a US $29 billion industry by 2021 ...

Previously, access to game changing technologies has been exclusive to the likes of Venture Capitalists of Silicon Valley, multinational corporations and the elites. Qubit Protocol aims to create a democratic environment for everyone to take part in the benefits that will arise from quantum technologies.

According to Goldman Sachs, quantum computing could be a US $29 billion industry by 2021, with tech giants Google, Microsoft and IBM currently paving the way forward for Quantum technologies. Our experts envision this industry growing exponentially within the years to come. The Qubit platform will provide you with the ability to work alongside the top minds and leading quantum experts across the world.

Quantum computers are rapidly progressing ...

The past few years have seen tremendous progress in the development of quantum computers.  In 2016 IBM released a 5 qubit computer that can now be used by anyone in the cloud.  IBM followed this with the announcement of a 17 qubit computer in mid 2017 and a 50 qubit computer by the end of the year.  In early 2018 Google announced a 72 qubit computer.  With the number of qubits doubling every 6-12 months, the quantum computing space is at an inflection point in its growth, and we are extremely excited to share this opportunity with the community.

Our Vision

Currently, investment in Quantum technologies is complex, difficult, and unavailable to most. Our blockchain platform will democratise investment opportunities and guide commercial research via a panel of leading scientific, technical and business experts. By strategically guiding investment, Qubit Protocol will kickstart the quantum technology revolution.

Introducing Qubit Protocol

Qubit Protocol is a decentralised blockchain enabled governance protocol that utilises the collective intelligence of the quantum science community to make strategic funding decisions on quantum technology projects. The platform will take governance to a new level by pushing liquid democratic models and crypto-economics to the limit whilst utilising the blockchain to the fullest potential for this purpose.

1. Funding proposals

Quantum startups place project proposals onto the Qubit Protocol platform, and each project is reviewed extensively prior to the voting period.

2. Delegation and voting

Experts and public token holders will be allowed to vote on the most meritorious projects to be funded. Users are able to stake their Qubit Protocol Tokens (QPT) on projects directly or delegate them to a quantum expert to decide on their behalf.

3. Startup funding

Once due diligence is performed, startups will receive funding via the Qubit DAO.

4. Token locking and burning

QPT tokens used to vote for successfully funded projects will be locked and a small percentage of QPT tokens for unsuccessful projects will be burned to ensure a sufficient level of crypto-economics.

5. Rewards

Much like how a network rewards miners, the protocol rewards effective and strategic decision making through QPT tokens, as startups achieve their milestones. This is pushed further through incentivised collaboration where users can earn extra QPT by aiding startups with research and small amounts of work.

6. Profit making events

In the event of profit-making events such as an IPO or company sale exit, up to 50% of the profit may be used to buy-back QPT to be burned thus rewarding QPT token holders, and the remaining percentage of the profits will be used to fund the next generation of quantum projects.

A protocol that truly embodies a governance structure for effective decision making, validation and collaboration.

Revolutionary technology

Quantum is at an inflexion point and on the verge of breaking out.

Expert collective

We are creating a quantum community, fostering collaboration and using the intelligence of a quantum technology expert collective.

Liquid democracy

As a member of our quorum, you are able to either vote directly on projects or delegate your votes to one of the experts. Earn rewards by taking part in the decision making process.
