Quant Network

The company was founded in 2015 by Gilbert Verdian. During his extensive career in multiple different sectors, he saw that there was always a problem with connecting one entity to another, whether it be enterprises, projects or networks. In 2009, when he was the CTO of HM Treasury, he even had a team to research the technology behind and how it can be used, which at the time was rejected but he always saw a future in technology. So he founded Quant Network to solve this issue by creating a open-source blockchain operating system that aims to connect businesses and developers with multiple distributed ledger technologies (DLTs). With this project he also founded the ISO Standard TC307 (ISO/TC 307), also known as the blockchain and distributed ledger technologies. The TC307 was created to standardize and improve the security, privacy, and interoperability of blockchain technology worldwide which was used to solve the interoperability issue in the world. This standard provides internationally recognized guidelines for working with blockchain technology with over 50 countries using it. [4][5][6]
