Instacoin Adds Stablecoins to Canadian Bitcoin ATM Network

Stablecoins are a new type of cryptocurrency that have their value pegged to another asset such as the US dollar, other cryptocurrencies, precious metals or a combination of algorithms.

    MONTREAL, QC, December 11, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Canada's leading cryptocurrency ATM operator, Instacoin ATM, has announced that its users can now buy and sell stablecoins across its network.

The following seven new coins are now available at all Instacoin ATM locations across Canada: DAI (Multi-Collateral DAI), SAI (Single-Collateral DAI), Tether (USDT), USD Coin (USDC), Paxos Standard (PAX), TrueUSD (TUSD) and Gemini Dollar (GUSD).

Stablecoins are a new type of cryptocurrency that have their value pegged to another asset such as the US dollar, other cryptocurrencies, precious metals or a combination of algorithms.

"Instacoin will now have the most stablecoins available to buy and sell via ATM in the world," says Michael Lo Verso, president of Instacoin ATM. "Since crypto prices can fluctuate 10–20% in a single day, fiat-pegged stablecoins are currently the most popular option in the marketplace and are typically pegged 1:1 to the US Dollar."

Stablecoins have the characteristics of crypto-coins like Bitcoin and the price stability of traditional financial assets, such as the US dollar, Euro or gold. Originally created to provide steadiness to the highly volatile world of cryptocurrency, stablecoins help eliminate fears about conversion rates and make them more practical for buying goods and services.

There are three different types of stablecoins. Asset-backed on-chain stablecoins backed by cryptocurrencies such as Ether are dependent on the stability of the cryptocurrency. Asset-backed off-chain stablecoins are backed by a fiat currency, precious metals or other real-world assets and usually held by a trusted third-party. Algorithmic stablecoins rely on a combination of algorithms and smart-contracts to maintain price equilibrium which require continual network growth and investment.

"The demand for stablecoins is growing," says Lo Verso. "As traditional financial institutions and world governments try to adapt to new technologies and cryptocurrencies vie for mainstream adoption, stablecoins offer an easy solution for the market."

The Quantum Resistant Ledger (QRL) Foundation Announces a Research Arm to Continue Its Advancement of Post-Quantum Cryptographic Standards

The Quantum Resistant Ledger (QRL) Foundation, creator of the world’s leading quantum-secure blockchain network and digital asset platform, is continuing to pioneer in the field by seeking up to 4 post-quantum cryptographers for research grants as part of its newly formed research initiative. This announcement comes on the tail of Google’s quantum supremacy achievement, which further confirms the need for a transition towards quantum-secure cryptography in many technological domains.

The Quantum Resistant Ledger (QRL) Foundation Announces a Research Arm to Continue Its Advancement of Post-Quantum Cryptographic Standards
Zug, Switzerland, October 25, 2019 --(PR.com)-- The Quantum Resistant Ledger (QRL) Foundation, creator of the world’s leading quantum-secure blockchain network and digital asset platform, is continuing to pioneer in the field by seeking up to 4 post-quantum cryptographers for research grants. This initiative comes on the tail of Google’s quantum supremacy achievement, which further confirms the need for a transition towards quantum-secure cryptography in many technological domains.

QRL is the first fully quantum-resistant blockchain network and digital asset platform. It relies on a third-party audited and IETF specified implementation of the eXtended Merkle Signature Scheme (XMSS), rather than on ECDSA as other blockchains projects do. This security has been in place since the genesis block, and is augmented by a forward thinking crypto-agile approach characterized by an address format designed to be adaptable to future signature schemes, which may arise in response to additional security threats beyond those posed by quantum computers. In parallel, QRL is set to be the first enterprise-grade platform to utilise the lattice-based Dilithium and Kyber algorithms. They form the basis for QRL’s ephemeral messaging layer, a resilient and decentralised post-quantum messaging service which will run alongside the QRL network.

Google, in partnership with NASA, has demonstrated the ability to perform a computation in seconds that would otherwise take our largest supercomputers thousands of years - an achievement known as “quantum supremacy.” The power of Quantum computing is said to be growing at a double-exponential rate when compared to classical computers, an observation first made by Google’s Hartmut Neven. This rapid progress signifies that it is only a matter of time until quantum computers will be able to break elliptic curve cryptography (ECC). Public Key infrastructure reliant on ECC underpins both the security of the internet and the security of funds on most blockchain networks (like Bitcoin and Ethereum).

To continue the pioneering work in the development of post-quantum cryptographic applications, and to help address the threat quantum computing will have globally, The Quantum Resistant Ledger Foundation is opening up its research arm and seeking up to 4 post-quantum cryptographers who are interested in pursuing research grants for lattice-based threshold cryptography.

Applicants can visit https://theqrl.org/research/grants for up-to-date information on the grants available or express interest to hello@qrl.foundation

Note to editors

The Quantum Resistant Ledger (QRL) is a forward-thinking, fully quantum-resistant blockchain network and digital asset platform which uses a secure, audited, and IETF specified implementation of the eXtended Merkle Tree Signature Scheme (XMSS) from its genesis block. This is in direct contrast with a vast majority of blockchains which lack audits and rely on ECDSA, a signature scheme which is vulnerable to quantum attacks and which will be difficult to replace. The security of the QRL platform and its post-quantum value store is complemented by a vast suite of core features and a development ecosystem which allows users to build new blockchain applications which use or connect to the QRL protocol.
