QTUM PRICE PERFORMANCE
QTUM is one of the cryptocurrencies that rallied in the 2017 Bull Run. However, the coin has lost 97% of its value since then. The all-time high price of QTUM is $106.88, but it is now trading at $2.40 per coin.
Qtum (pronounced Quantum) is a smart contract platform that uses a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus mechanism to validate transaction blocks and provide security assurances. It combines different aspects of the Ethereum and Bitcoin blockchains. Qtum uses Bitcoin core as the base of its network for security and stability reasons and, therefore, operates via a UTXO model. The project also integrated Ethereum’s virtual machine (the EVM), so the chain could run Turing complete code needed to support smart contracts, and thus decentralized applications (dApps).
