Qtum Crypto Bites: Happy Million Blocks to You Too!!

June has been a historic month for Qtum as we managed to complete one million blocks on the Qtum Blockchain on June 26, 2021.


Of course, back in April, we went through the FastLane Hard fork as well, which dropped the average block time by four times from 128 seconds to 32 seconds. The halving blocks were adjusted to keep the same pacing for halvings as Bitcoin, and the first halving for Qtum will be on December 1, 2021.


Community members! Be sure to join the sneak start of our new Qtum Discord Channel for upcoming contests, announcements, development work, project proposals, and more!
