The Qtum platform is expanding to serve the $1.7 trillion global blockchain development market in 2024, with plans to introduce USDC token swaps, Bitcoin Ordinals support, and enhancements to Qtum Core.

This strategy aims to enhance DeFi accessibility, increase chain volume, and attract developers by leveraging its hybrid blockchain model that combines Bitcoin's UTXO model with the Ethereum Virtual Machine for scalability and interoperability.

Additional updates include implementing the BRC-20 token standard and building bridge solutions for token transfer between Ethereum and Qtum, further solidifying its infrastructure for Web3 development.
