Quant Network Overledger

Overledger is the world’s first blockchain operating system (OS) that not only inter-connects blockchains but also existing networks to blockchain and facilitates the creation of internet scale multi-chain applications otherwise known as mApps. Start building game-changing applications with no additional infrastructure, using existing resources, and have the choice of interoperability in as little as 8 minutes.

Edit: If anyone’s interested, I wrote an introduction to Quant Network last week.
