  1. QLINK (QLC):

Now known as QLC Chain, Qlink is the first public blockchain for a decentralized network. QLC Chain represents a system where users can buy connections from their peers. That is, renting out access to someone’s Wi-Fi, selling unused data to other users, and receiving a cell signal from a base station in someone’s home.

More broadly, the project is working to build a network-as-a-service infrastructure that will implement smart contracts to facilitate applications and other network features and functions.

The QLC Chain network tries to solve the problems of oversupply of network capacity, insufficient network access, centralized operations, etc. by decentralizing the telecommunications and connectivity market.

How does it work?

Thanks to the QLC Chain platform, anyone from anywhere in the world will be able to operate a small base station from their home, providing cellular services in the neighborhood. Every time a user connects to another user’s base station, a small percentage of their payment will be transferred to the base station operator.

The platform also accepts advertisers who can pay to have their content included in the Qlink network.


The QLC Chain team works with more than 40 telecom operators from around the world to provide decentralized mobile data services to 6 million customers. The network also has a partnership with NEO as it was built on the NEO blockchain. Other network partners include Binance, Ontology, Block Array, Cenntro and intop.

Road map

Launched in December 2017, the QLC Chain focused on developing a standard Wi-Fi sharing protocol and E2P SMS application. At the end of Q2 2018, data access and content distribution on the public chain were developed and deployed.

Towards the end of Q4 2018, the network will launch the QLC Public Chain on the mainnet and integrate with IPFS.

Telcoin is the first cryptocurrency that works to improve the interaction between mobile communication and blockchain technology. It is built on the Ethereum blockchain and can be used to make payments anywhere as long as their mobile phone number is known.

Telcoin is a cryptocurrency that will be distributed exclusively by GSMA mobile network operators.

How does it work?

Telcoin will be distributed among mobile operators who will then sell it to their customers. This will facilitate efficient money transfers, access to cryptocurrency and payments with crypto-enabled cards.

The work of the platform starts with end users who, having their crypto wallet fully integrated with the Telcoin API, will have access to multi-subscription wallets with three private keys. Telcoin will keep a record of users’ mobile phone numbers, their public key and one encrypted private key.

Telcoin provides a cheaper and faster way to send and receive money, and even people without a bank account can easily use Telcoin.

Partnership and Roadmap

The Telcoin network was launched in 2017 and has been operating throughout the first quarter of 2018, identifying its potential partners around the world. In the second quarter, the company implemented partnerships with telecommunication operators in Europe, South Africa and Japan. In the same quarter, it also initiated applications for any required approval in India, Pakistan, UK, Indonesia and other key markets.

In Q4 2018, Telcoin will expand to Japan, and in Q1 2019, it will serve money transfers in Europe, East Asia, Africa, and Southeast Asia.

BubbleTone is a blockchain-based telecommunications project working to eliminate roaming. The platform connects mobile operators and end users around the world in a blockchain-powered marketplace. The project gives traveling users the freedom to become legitimate local customers of any foreign landline operator in any country they travel to without having to replace their SIM cards.

With BubbleTone, users will be able to make calls and use data-based services worldwide at local rates with direct connection to local operators. For operators, this platform provides the opportunity to go global without having to deal with any complex network integration.

How does it work?

BubbbleTone aims to eliminate the problem of international roaming, which incurs unnecessary costs for both carriers and users. With BubbleTone’s blockchain, travelers can easily become verified local customers of the country they are traveling to without having to change their SIM card.

The platform also has its own mobile application, which is primarily its marketplace that connects subscribers and local network operators around the world.

The network is powered by UMT (Universal Mobile Token), which will be used in smart contracts to execute transactions. This token can also be used to top up the user’s balance to pay for the communication services they choose.


BubbleTone is currently working with Crypto Valley, REVESystems, CountryCom, Multi Digital Services, ShoCard and IDEMIA. In addition, the company has partnered with telecommunications providers in more than 80 countries to ensure a seamless travel experience for users.

Road map

The initial version of the network’s smart contracts was ready in Q1 2018. In the second quarter, a Web-API was created to integrate mobile operators and service providers in more than 80 countries. By the end of the third quarter of 2018, the company plans to receive the approval of the International Telecommunication Union, followed by the expansion of the list of mobile operators and service providers with which it cooperates by the fourth quarter of 2018. In the first quarter of 2019, the company will sign agreements with all operators and release the first prototype of a global SIM chip to be embedded in mobile devices.


BLOCKSIMS is a decentralized payment gateway that works to solve the problems associated with traditional telecommunications through blockchain technology. The platform aims to completely eliminate the fees charged by data and voice service providers and provides users with rewards and bills earned through digital advertising.

The platform works to ensure seamless dissemination of information through the development of new revenue channels, thereby eliminating the need for middlemen in the telecommunications process.

The BLOCKSIM platform uses the Ethereum blockchain to offer a level of transparency while incentivizing users who adopt and use the platform.

How does it work?

BLOCKSIM partners with leading telecommunications industries worldwide and makes international SIM cards available through its SIM token. This will provide BLOCKSIM users with unlimited voice and data services worldwide, and users will receive an incentive of up to USD 100.

Each SIM token holder will have a lifetime BLOCK SIM card including unlimited and free data and voice services.

Partnership and Roadmap

The concept of BLOCK SIM and SIM tokens was developed in April 2017, followed by research and development, culminating in the launch of the BLOCKSIM ICO in March 2018. The ICO ended in April 2018 and in October the world will see the introduction of BLOCK SIM with a mobile app for Android and iOS. The company aims to have at least 15% of the world’s telecommunications users using a BLOCK SIM card by 2020.
