That is to say, leasing access to someone’s Wi-Fi, selling unused data to other users, and receiving cell signal from a base station in someone’s house.

In a broader sense, the project is working to build a Network-as-a-Service infrastructure that would implement smart contracts to facilitate dapps and other features and functions of the network.

With the QLC Chain platform, anyone from anywhere in the world will be able to operate a small base station from their home providing cell service to their surrounding area. Each time a user connects to another user’s base station, a small percentage of their payment will be given to the base station operator.

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