Qtum Platform Now Available Through Amazon Web Services

Smart contract and dapp development is now deployed through one of the world’s largest cloud providers of business software


SINGAPORE, July 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Qtum (https://qtum.org/en), the first UTXO-based smart contract system, today announced that its Dapp development platform is now available on Amazon Web Services. Users across the enterprise and elsewhere will now be able to develop and deploy their own smart contracts from this ready-to-use Amazon Machine Image (AMI) featuring Qtum core and the Qmix Integrated Development Environment (IDE).

“Qtum is one of the most decentralized entities on the internet and AWS is one of the largest cloud providers in the world,” said Qtum Co-Founder Patrick Dai. “It is a perfect combination for users and the enterprise. We look forward to continue making Qtum’s smart contract and Dapp technology available for what is arguably its most in-demand market, the enterprise.”

Qtum’s focus is to offer easy-to-use yet robust solutions for users inside and outside the enterprise. The Qtum AMI image is completely free to use, at no additional cost for AWS customers to deploy a Qtum instance. There is also no need to purchase Qtum tokens. A test network can be deployed directly on the instance, allowing developers to simulate a public blockchain.

The new Qtum AMI on AWS can be used by anyone who wants to get started on the blockchain, run a Qtum node, or simply launch a server with Qtum pre-installed, without the hassle of handling dependencies. The node has Qtum pre-installed and users can choose between its mainnet or a testnet.

The Qtum AMI on AWS also includes:

  • Qtum and the solidity compiler with the official repository for easy updates
  • Development libraries and tools to allow anyone to build smart contracts and work on the desktop QT wallet
  • A Qmix development IDE that launches by default on boot

Blockchain industry leaders are increasingly looking to Qtum to solve complex issues of scalability and deliverability for their projects, and Qtum delivers a smart contract platform running on a proof-of-stake consensus for the first time. Qtum's platform utilizes solidity smart contracts through its integration of the Ethereum Virtual Machine. More than 50 decentralized applications have been deployed on Qtum to date across a broad spectrum of sectors, including but not limited to the Internet of things, intellectual property, market forecast, healthcare and clean energy.

About Qtum
Qtum is the first UTXO-based smart contract system with a proof-of-stake consensus model. The platform use Account Attraction Layer to combine Bitcoin Core and the Ethereum Virtual Machine. Proof-of-stake model reduces the computational difficulty in the network and increases scaling possibilities. Developers have deployed more than 50 decentralized applications across a broad spectrum of sectors. Qtum's independent blockchain aims to bring smart-contracts technology to mobile and connected devices to minimize the gap between blockchain and commerce. (www.qtum.org)
