The Qlear protocol is powered by a stack of several distributed computation systems. The stack includes a Multi-Party Computation (MPC) network as well as an array of Plasma side-chains, built on the Ethereum blockchain. For these systems to run smoothly, the QLEAR token is used to incentivise participants to perform calculations and to secure the network’s operations. Hence, QLEAR can be viewed as the protocol’s native gas token. Developers and platform operators, using the Qlear protocol will have to acquire QLEAR in order to access its services.
