Johann Polecsak is the co-founder and CTO of QAN. QAN is the IT innovator in the field of practical post-quantum cryptography (PQC) applications. They have implemented a post-quantum cryptography algorithm in 2 available quantum resistant products: 1. QANplatform (QAN blockchain platform), 2. QANFence quantum resistant VPN software.
His mission with QANplatform is to empower anyone to build rapidly and securely on the blockchain.
Achievements in blockchain technology:
• Founded QANplatform, the world’s first Ethereum compatible Quantum resistant blockchain.
• Founded LibreScan, the First Decentralized Blockchain Explorer (DBE).
• IP for multi-language smart contracts – developers can code in any programming language.
• IP for rapid cloud platform blockchain deployment – 80% faster than industry leaders.
• IP for Proof-of-Randomness (PoR) consensus algorithm – green and decentralized.
• IP for quantum-resistant blockchain library.
Johann Polecsak is interested in cloud-based solutions, MySQL, open source culture. Johann uses tools like Docker, PHP, Kubernetes, Python, Programming, Node. js, Redis, etc. He also has experience in network design and management, as well as in-depth knowledge of server architecture, automation, backup, performance and security.
Back on is education, Johann studied at the University of Pécs between 2011 and 2014. He was at the Faculty of Commerce and Economics and obtained a BSc in Business Administration and Management.
Johann Polecsak, co-founder and CTO of QANplatform was recently interviewed by ValueWalk about the blockchain and quantum computing. Polecsak discusses quantum computing’s threats to the blockchain and how these can be prevented, and what the company is working on to offer a way out of the problem.
Polecsak explained the most worrying and already proven part is that quantum computers will be able to break most asymmetric cryptography-related schemes, including the digital signature scheme used by bitcoin, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrencies. He said: “QANplatform’s mission is to build a future-proof blockchain platform, not just another one on the list. Quantum-resistant security is our USP, but we put an enormous focus on lowering the entry barrier for the developer community, so startups and enterprises can build their Proofs of Concept (PoC) and Minimum Viable Products (MVP) as fast as possible to accelerate mass adoption.”
The company raised a total of $2.8 million in funding over two rounds in June –in the VC round it raised $2.1 million with investments from Fairum Ventures, DeltaHub Capital, Insignius Capital, and BlackDragon.
Polecsak explained QANplatform has implemented a post-quantum signature scheme which is used to cross-sign transactions for when quantum computers become available. “We solve this issue by building integrations for existing and widely used and loved programming languages (Rust), DevOps technologies (Docker, Kubernetes), and Cloud platforms. Developers will build quantum-resistant smart contracts, DApps, DeFi solutions, tokens and cryptocurrencies, and NFTs on top of the QAN blockchain platform.
