Securing the digital asset ecosystem
BTQ builds post-quantum infrastructure to enable the next generation of energy-efficient blockchain networks
Enabling an on-chain future
Compact post-quantum signature schemes to safeguard assets from attacks by quantum computers.
Flexible smart contracts with formal verification built in to enable mathematical verification.
Accelerated post-quantum cryptographic primitives embedded in advanced semiconductor technologies.
PQScaleNIST compliant post-quantum blockchain scaling solution
A novel scaling technique for post-quantum cryptographic primitives. PQScale achieves transaction speed and cost savings by leveraging zero-knowledge proofs for transaction processing.
BTQ was founded by a group of post-quantum cryptographers with an interest in addressing the urgent threat that a large-scale universal quantum computer poses to blockchain security. With the support of leading research institutes and universities, BTQ is combining software and hardware to safeguard the digital asset class with unique post-quantum services and solutions.
Blockchain security in the quantum era
Blockchain public-key infrastructure is built on top of two mathematical problems: integer factorization and discrete logarithm problems, both of which are vulnerable to quantum attacks. This essay describes some of the options and challenges in light of the quantum threat.
Keelung - A toolkit for fast, private and secure applications
We are excited to announce Keelung, a zero-knowledge cryptography development toolkit for fast, private and secure applications. Keelung makes it simple to build zero-knowledge proofs (ZKPs) for your application regardless of the business logic or use case. Zero-knowledge cryptography has a bright future, and we want to make it easy for teams to build and ship.
Long-Term Security Solutions for CBDCs
Stablecoins are cryptocurrencies that are collateralized by fiat money, commodities or other cryptocurrencies and have reached a record high market capitalization of over $180B in 2022. Even during the bear market, stablecoin market capitalization has remained around $150B and has retained over 15% of the market share of the total digital currency market as of July 2022. The rapid growth of digital currency assets such as stablecoins has motivated central banks to research and validate Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) solutions.
