Former Finance Minister of Malta to join advisory board of QuickX Protocol

Former Finance Minister of Malta to join advisory board of QuickX Protocol

New Delhi, May 22 (UNI) After a ground-breaking performance in Dubai Blockchain Summit 2018, India born blockchain startup QuickX on Tuesday joined hands with former Finance Minister Sir John Dalli of Malta, the Blockchain island, to promote the technology internationally.

The Blockchain startup welcomed Sir Dalli on the advisory board of the company in a press conference organised here.

Talking about the technology, QuickX Protocol Founder and COO Kshitij Adhlakha said, “We started working on blockchain in 2016 and saw that the promising world of blockchain has a few fatal flaws. We figured out that limitations such as Transaction speed, Cost, Scalability and Cross blockchain transfers are hindering its mass adoption. So we came up with the idea of QuickX”.



He said, “It is a novel protocol designed specifically to cure the many fatal flaws that plague blockchain, today. It performs transactions off the chain for same Blockchain assets and utilises pooling facilitators who supply liquidity for cross chain transfers. Through this, it accelerates the transaction speed greatly, dissolves the interoperability problem between different blockchains, relieves the transaction fees and also solves the issue of scalability. All this happens instantly and with next to zero fee”.

“With QuickX, it is now possible to use digital tokens in real life, swiftly, at anytime, from anywhere”, he added. They started business with Asia and Africa and were now spreading work in Europe, the US, UAE and South Korea, he stated.



QuickX is said to solve the major speed breaker hindering the mass adoption of blockchain assets. It claims to allow thousands of transactions a second by building a decentralised platform which improves the cost, scalability and speed of the blockchain as well as performing inter-blockchain transactions with an almost negligible fee.

Addressing the conference, QuickX Protocol Founder and CEO Vaibhav Adhlakha said, 'At QuickX we strive to add utility to the existing blockchain technology and believe that the beautiful country of Malta shares this vision with us”.



According to the Information, Malta is known as an island of blockchain. The country is trying to address the ability to re-conceive how businesses can be operated through smart contracts, the use, and development of advanced platforms and protocols, the new dimension of economic enterprises which support cryptographic technologies. It is determined to achieve its goal by trying its hand to put public transport service and financial services on blockchain.



The country is joining hands with the best technologies available all across the globe- to bring back the countries best cream to realise the goal. Malta is developing a regulatory environment that has been created so as to attract these tech firms, building the proven environment which was set up by Sir John Dalli in 1994. The former Malta minister had introduced VAT in Malta.

Speaking on the occasion, Sir Dalli, said, “I wanted to come to India for a long time and savour the vast culture that makes up this great country. I am glad to be here today and to experience some very prominent culture achievements of the past and the innovative technologies of the future that will change the world”.

“Blockchain is a technology that transcends the technical issues. Its core rational is the delivery of information directly between the people involved bypassing any centralised data capturing and storing servers that are controlled by governments and big businesses. The outcome is restoration of users”.

“Every single person in today’s world is spied upon, monitored and controlled. All our movements, all our transactions, all our utterances are registered and logged. A well-structured, functional and protected blockchain environment should put a stop to this. I said “protected”, because it has happened with government regulations, banking systems, here will be those who will seek ways to abuse it. There must be some mechanisms to minimise this possibility of abuse,' he added.

He said he will take the opportunity to promote and support this technology in Malta and at international level.



The Company is looking forward to see the shape-shift and value addition the technology is yet to provide. It is said that QuickX Protocol will empower each and everyone to buy a brick to a castle, with its innovative technology, and revolutionise the world of transactions by using blockchain assets.
