We published a blog on “Why Qtum is the Real Evolution of Bitcoin.”
“By combining Bitcoin’s original UTXO model with Ethereum’s game-changing EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine), Qtum has created a blockchain that’s the most organic and obvious evolution of the original Bitcoin blockchain.”
Thank you, ZyCrypto, for mentioning Qtum in your article on “The Role of EVM in Blockchain Project Evolution.”
"#Qtum provides the benefits of being an unspent transaction output (UTXO) blockchain combined with Proof-of-Stake (PoS)...Its deployment of the Janus version of the EVM has enabled the Qtum blockchain to be one blockchain to watch out for."
