About the qDai chain

the qDai chain information

The qDai chain is an experimental chain built on top of the Quorum blockchain platform. A special patch was applied to the Quorum go-client to support a Block Reward contract. This feature initially appeared in the Parity Ethereum client and allows flexible token minting.

Key properties of the qDai chain:

  • Blocks produced every 1 second

  • Istanbul BFT consensus

  • Block limit 74'000'000 gas

  • Gas price 0

  • No block reward

  • New native tokens (qDai) minted on Dai deposit (similar to the xDai chain)

  • Block Explorer and JSON rpc were available during testing but are not currently operational.
