Fast Transactions

Qtum can theoretically achieve “millions to billions” of transactions per second (tps) by combining various layer-1 and layer-2 solutions. Qtum’s layer 1 network is currently around 1,100 tps.


Staking rewards can be earned in a random process weighted by the number of QTUM in your wallet versus the total number of coins staked on the network. More coins staked means a greater chance of winning a block reward of 0.5 QTUM. Staking returns rewards of 6-8% annually, which may change over time.


The Qtum network’s on-chain governance system is known as the Decentralized Governance Protocol (DGP). QTUM holders can participate in decision-making processes to vote on various network parameters, such as the block size and smart contract fee.

What consensus protocol does QTUM use?

Qtum uses the MPoS (mutualized proof-of-stake) consensus mechanism for network security, which is a modified version of Proof-of-Stake 3.0. The protocol incentivizes users to stake coins to facilitate and secure block validation. Confirming each block is a competition between coin holders, where based on connectivity to the network and random chance they get the right to validate the block. Unlike the early PoS protocols, the block reward is constant and does not depend on coin age for determining the likeliness of getting it. The rewards are spread proportionally to the stake, so the more QTUM staked, the more rewards the user receives.
