What is the best way for me to contact Quant?

Where are your offices?

We are headquartered in central London, with a global presence.

Is Quant a blockchain?

No, we’re a blockchain solutions provider.

Our technology platform, Overledger, is a chain-agnostic layer that sits over the blockchain ledgers. Its name says it all: Over-ledger.


Which blockchains do you support?

As pioneers in blockchain interoperability, we add new networks to Overledger on a regular basis.

To see the latest list of supported networks, visit the Overledger page >

Can Overledger connect to any blockchain?

Yes. If you would like to connect to a blockchain not currently supported, contact us >

Which blockchains does Overledger connect via bridges?

Overledger can connect you to public or private chains securely and easily. To learn more about the currently supported networks, visit our page about bridging with Overledger, or contact us >

How do Overledger bridges work?

Our bridges have been developed with the most advanced secure protocols and use a ‘burn & mint’ technique, which instantly creates new smart contracts on the destination chain and securely transfers your assets without holding them in escrow, reducing the risk of your assets being the target of malicious attacks.

With Overledger Platform, creating a bridge couldn’t be simpler. Our bridge flow allows you to bridge Flex and Vari smart tokens in minutes and securely. Learn more >

Why do I need a bridge?

After you create your smart tokens on Overledger, you may want to transfer your asset between two different blockchains. The bridge is your secure connection to do just that.

Are Overledger bridges secure?

We only bring you innovation we can be proud of, Overledger bridges have been developed with the latest, strongest secure protocols and are constantly tested for vulnerabilities. We invite you to read our latest blog about secure bridges and our work with the IETF to create a secure protocol for the industry.

Can I bridge my existing tokens with Overledger?

Currently, only Quant Flex and Vari tokens are ready to become fully interoperable via one of our bridges.

What does QRC mean?

QRC is the term we use for our chain-agnostic, secure, smart contracts.

What does fungible mean?

A fungible asset is one that can be traded or exchanged for other units of itself; examples of this are money and company shares. They’re also equal in value—one dollar is always worth another dollar and a share of a company is always equal to another share of the same company.

What does non-fungible mean?

Non-fungible is the opposite of fungible; a non-fungible item is unique and cannot be replaced, like artwork, a specific car, a house or even a plane ticket.

What is a smart contract?

In simple terms, a smart contract is a pre-programmed set of rules and functions that live in the blockchain that is activated with transactions.

If you are ready to connect to mainnets, contact us to choose your tier.

What are Overledger flows?

These are wizard-like UIs that take your inputs and deliver smart tokens and secure bridges that carry our DNA – in minutes and without a single line of coding.

What types of smart tokens can I issue with Overledger?

Quant smart tokens are based on ERC standards and are chain-agnostic now and in the future. We have expertly written and regularly test them via external providers. Currently, there are three types of Quant smart tokens: Base (fungible), Flex (fungible) and Vari (non-fungible).

With our new Smart contract deployer API, you can now easily deploy your own smart contracts on your chosen chain.

What are digital assets?

They are either digital representations of real-world value (property, equities, for example) or natively digital value, such as currency or digital artwork.

Who is Overledger for?

We built Overledger for developers, start-ups and enterprises who want to enter the world of blockchain in a simple, secure, trusted and future-proof way. We based its enterprise-grade design and functionality on removing unnecessary complexity, embedding interoperability now and in the future, and adapting to wherever the blockchain economy goes.

How does Overledger work?

Overledger was built on Quant’s pioneering technology to deliver a simple product via SaaS, which you can use via Quant Connect. And whenever we launch new functionality and more industry breakthroughs, you benefit immediately.

What are the primary use cases?

In what way is Overledger secure?

Trust is an element of our DNA, and our senior team have over 20 years of experience in designing national critical systems in payments, energy, and security for major organisations, including governments. Overledger doesn’t store data or information but works as an abstraction platform that orchestrates interactions between various ledgers. All the data is secured at the source, so it cannot be accessed or manipulated. And we don’t hold private keys.

What are mDApps?

Another Quant innovation, mDApps are applications that are cross-platform, multi-DLT, and no longer bound to any single blockchain.

Can I have a trial of Authorise?

You can have a limited trial of Authorise by contacting us here >

How much does Overledger Authorise cost?

Please contact us for a bespoke quote based on your business needs here >

Do I need a licence for Overledger to implement Authorise?

Yes, you need an active Overledger license to run Authorise, as both technologies act in partnership to sign and send transactions to the underlying blockchains. If you don’t currently have an Overledger licence, we can set one up for you as part of buying Authorise. Contact us here >

Do I need my own version of Authorise or can I use Quant’s?

For production environments and mainnets you must host your own version of Authorise. We can offer set up and configuration support if required.

How does Quant guarantee the safety of keys generated by Authorise?

We don’t hold users’ keys in our systems; rather offer the technology for keys to be generated and stored at your chosen proprietary or third-party vault.

Utility tokens

What is the purpose of the QNT token?

QNT is a utility token. It is used as a form to gain access to Quant services – most notably as a way for customers to use Overledger, as explained here >

Would you like to list the QNT token on my crypto exchange?

Thank you but we have no interest in promoting our token as a cryptocurrency. It is a utility token for the Quant ecosystem. It is used as a form of payment for Quant services – most notably as a way for Overledger users to pay their fees as explained here >

Why don’t you provide more information about the QNT token?

We are building enterprise-grade products and solutions aimed at financial institutions, governments, corporates – and the partners and developers who support them. The QNT token is an integral part of our platform – used most notably to pay for software licences and sending transactions – but it’s not the focus of our efforts.

If you would like to make the best use of the token and contribute to the ecosystem we encourage you to develop on Overledger and use any of our APIs. To do so, please sign up on Quant Connect where you’ll find extensive information about our products and how they work – including how our utility token is used.

If not, to ensure you receive all of our updates in a timely manner, please subscribe to our emails or follow us on Twitter.
