QTUM is a blockchain application platform designed for building and running decentralized applications. QTUM employs a modified Bitcoin Core 0.13 protocol combined with an intercompatible version of Ethereum Virtual Machine to work with smart contracts. Thanks to Proof-of-Stake consensus protocol and a hybrid multilayered architecture, the applications built on QTUM are fully compatible with the most popular blockchain.
Matchpool is an Ethereum-driven social platform focused on communication and matching participants by their interests. Matchpool’s concept is centered on “pools” – something similar to closed groups on Facebook dedicated to certain topics. Every participant is entitled to create their own pool with the desired topic and rules or join existing pools. The economics within Matchpool platform are fueled by its native token Guppy (GUP). Participants may use GUP to buy content made by their peers and get access to paywalled pools. Additionally, users can earn GUP as a reward for helping others find their perfect match.
The winner(s) of the Challenge will be announced on February 18, 2108. Upon delivery of the MVP, the reward of 5% of all $ QGUP tokens will be vested with 18 monthly payments, while the $ 50,000 prize will be paid in 4 monthly payments either in cash or the equivalent in $ QGUP tokens.
