QLC Chain recently released its bi-weekly report, highlighting project news and developments. QLC Chain is a decentralized Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) platform built on the NEO blockchain that aims to provide Wi-Fi and virtual private network (VPN) access.
The WinQ decentralized application (dApp) is the platform that incentivizes participants to share access to Wi-Fi and VPN with others in return for QLC token compensation. On July 9th, the beta WinQ dApp launched on the iOS App Store, and is searchable as “WinQ VPN.” As with the Android launch, 100 TestNet QLC will be given to new users who download the dApp, that can be used to connect to any VPN.
