Decentralized Governance
for the Web3 World

Q combines the benefits of a public, open and decentralized ledger with the transparency of enforceable private contracts. Whether you want to interact with other businesses, build decentralized applications or simply send and receive tokens:
Q is for you.

Q mainnet is live.

  • Q mainnet and testnet are live and operational. We suggest to start playing around on testnet. Please check our testnet documentation and tutorials.
    For serious business, head over to our mainnet right away. You will find the mainnet documentation here.

  • On Q testnet, this is easy: use the faucet. We are currently preparing the public listing of the Q mainnet token. Stay tuned!

  • Of course! There are three different types of nodes within Q protocol:

    Validator nodes play a vital part in Q’s consensus mechanism. They validate transactions. In return they receive rewards. Find detailed instructions on how to set up a validator node here.

    Root nodes are the guardians of the Q constitution. They are an integral part of Q’s governance framework. Interested in becoming a root node? Start here.

    Full nodes monitor the network but they don't sign blocks. Thus, they don't actively contribute to the Q consensus, but nevertheless help to stabilise the network.

  • Q enables developers to program smart contracts and build decentralized applications. Since Q is fully EVM compatible, you can use the Solidity programming language. To start developing with Q, go here.

  • As a Q token holder, you are an active participant in the system. You can propose changes and vote on proposals submitted by others. To learn how to participate in Q’s governance, go here.

  • Q experts support Q by setting system parameters. Do you have relevant knowledge and skills? If so, volunteering as a Q expert might be a great role for you. Join the discussion or learn more here.

Q Roadmap

Q is a decentralized protocol. The development of Q is a cooperative effort, managed and executed in a fully decentralized way via governance proposals and community decisions.

There are multiple entities, individuals and DAOs within the Q community that are working on expanding Q’s feature set, improving the protocol’s robustness and providing tooling and user interfaces. The following roadmap shows a summary of what has already been achieved and provides an outlook on what the teams are currently working on.
