In recent years, although DeFi has made remarkable development, the digital asset economy still suffers from many structural problems unique to the industry that lead to a lack of liquidity and hinder the functioning of the market. Besides the problem of high transaction fees and bad security, the delay of transaction confirmation has resulted in all transactions and credits requiring up to 100% of the capital being locked.
Last June, Coinlist conducted ICOs for several potential projects, including Qredo – A deep technology, DeFi infrastructure, instant cross-chain payments, empowering traders and asset managers. This project promises to solve all of the above problems with Blockchain interoperability, lightning-fast settlement, and decentralized custody safe.
Until July 7, 2021, CoinMarketCap calculates a total market capitalization of $78 Billion for decentralized finance (DeFi). This market tended to grow strongly, up to 143% in the first two months of 2021. However, this is also a highly competitive market as there are already many successful projects in the market. It can be a major drawback and advantageous when the market has been proven demand, and users have also been educated by competitors.
Polygon Network ($7.6B as of 9/7/2021)
It represents 0.1% of the total market capitalization. One of the Ethereum layer 2 scaling solutions has been growing very fast. More specifically, instead of providing a scalable solution like other projects, Polygon provides a Framework that makes it easy for Devs to build scalable solutions for Ethereum and allow them to connect in Polygon Network. The ultimate goal is to create an ecosystem of Ethereum-centric scaling solutions.
One of the leading Layer 2 scaling solutions. Arbitrum uses a multi-round rollup protocol – Allowing rolling sidechain transactions into a single aggregate block and posting to the Ethereum blockchain for dispute resolution, where Arbitrum subdivides the dispute until it is a tiny one resolves it on-chain.
Qredo products are designed to be simple. Users can create and manage funds, store assets, and execute low-cost instant transactions with user-defined custody rules on the network.
Signing App (App Store/ Google Play)
The Signing app supports the secure signing of actions using multi-party computation protocols. Understandably, the app is a method to increase the security of your account.
The Signing app is used to manipulate:
- Identify and access the Qredo Network when logging in as well as any changes to the profile.
- Add other members to the trusted network.
- Transactions where users are the Trade Initiator and Counterparty in an Atomic Swap.
- Whitelisting and the addition of addresses.
- Custody where users are a Custodian of a fund or wallet.
Functions of Funds for securing self-custody, transferring faster, and controlling capital
Funds are a way to organize secured assets on the Qredo Network. When creating a Fund, users can select supported assets and add custodians to manage usage. For business customers, users will add other users to the fund and then assign roles and permissions.
Fast and safe delivery of digital assets: deposit, transfers, withdrawals, and atomic Swaps
Qredo has just launched a new function called Atomic Swaps. Basically, this is a form of instant exchange of assets from one party to a trusted other party. Technically, this is an instant transfer of ownership of digital assets registered with the Qredo Network between two partners.
Qredo has taken advantage of its fast and secure to move digital assets through private transfers and swaps with its network of trusted partners.
Users can invite another party to join the network. After both agree, there will appear in each of the accounts lists of trusted parties and will be available to transfer or swap assets with each other.
Fast Finality Blockchain: Qredo is built on Tendermint – A fast finality consensus engine tuned to process thousands of transactions per second, including a layer 2 statechain that transfers and records asset ownership on various layer 1 blockchains and within the Qredo Network itself.
Multi-Party Consensus Computing (MPC) Network – A next-generation, consensus-based, trustless MPC network connecting layer 1 blockchains to eliminate digital asset theft.
Encrypted Messaging: incorporated with the Matrix network – A decentralized messaging architecture. Qredo allows encrypted private communications to be cryptographically connected to transactions on the Network. This messaging layer enables applications from Qredo. The typical example is Trader Chat, an application allowing traders to buy and sell directly from their favorite chat software.

Github: Public and be updated last time in April 2020. Details can be found at Qredo · GitHub
Unique Selling Point (USP)
Qredo protocol claims ownership of assets on a ledger versus storing them in a centralized database. Cryptography is stored in MPC nodes and distributed across the network. Together, the nodes create a digital signature for transactions without generating a private key. It is very convenient for users.
Support cross-chain cryptocurrency market development easily, such as cross-chain swap and cross-chain credit. It increases the applicability of the product in practice.
Qredo has built-in security and privacy protocols to ensure the safety of transactions that are not affected by front-running activity, MEV disruption, and nefarious and fraudulent activities.
