QiSwap is a decentralized exchange hosted on the Qtum blockchain. We found that no other project met all our requirements while remaining truly decentralized. Most notably, we were looking at speed, gas cost, and stability.

The Pioneers I program started as a test to see if the code would function properly on a test network, and participants were paid for doing a few transactions and trying to spot bugs. The Pioneers II program was a stress test in which participants effectively ‘wash traded’ trivial amounts of coins on the main network to prove that Qtum could handle the load.


The QiSwap team will never ask you to send them anything ever. Please understand that if you are contacted by anyone claiming to be from the QiSwap team, it is fraudulent.

If your Qi tokens are on an exchange and that exchange has not posted that they will support this airdrop, please withdraw them to the QiSwap web wallet or the Qtum QT Core with QRC20 support.

The QiSwap project is a QRC20 token that exists on the Qtum blockchain. Qi token holders will be eligible for an airdrop, starting at Qtum block height #924,270, which is estimated to happen…

Space Pioneers on Planet QiSwap

Pioneers is meant to be an ongoing program in the QiSwap ecosystem. This will likely become a monthly event. When we originally announced Pioneers 2 in our January 22nd article, the rewards were based on the number of swaps in order to stress test QiSwap. We did say that the article was subject to change, and in the February 9th article we mentioned that liquidity provided was also a way to generate rewards. After Pioneers 2 ended, we released an article on April 2nd that stated liquidity provided was more weighted than simply making swaps.

While it makes more sense…

We will continue to publish our progress reports in TL;DR format. If we used paragraph format, the report would get too long. If you would like more information, please join our Telegram channel:


Before we get started, we want to emphasize that if you have not swapped your QIAIR for Qi, you have until April 15th to do so. After that date, we will permanently close the contract.


  • The Qtum/Qi and Qc/Qi liquidity pools have been added to QiSwap. It is now possible to fund these pools to start earning a portion of the trading fee.
  • Binance has…

Pioneers Program

We want to thank the early QiSwap Pioneers that have been a part of the community since the beginning. They have helped us with testing, reporting bugs and even provided liquidity before being rewarded the additional Qi rewards for LP’s. To highlight how vital this group has been to the early development of QiSwap, we have allocated 0.3% of total supply (3 000 000 Qi) that will be distributed into two different sub groups, namely Pioneers I and Pioneers II.

Pioneers I (expired) are the true OGs of the ecosystem, the users that claimed testnet tokens through the faucet and…


The QiSwap platform is a Decentralized Exchange deployed on the Qtum blockchain. It is essentially a set of smart contracts that exist as automated market makers in the crypto economy. These contracts are based on Uniswap. Because the overall crypto market fluctuates in price, and arbitrage opportunities arise; QiSwap’s liquidity pools are relevant simply because they exist. This document’s purpose is to explain how the Qi token affects the operation of the platform.

This article is the first in a series that will discuss the role of the Qi token. It’s not written to be the final version and…

There has been a lot of progress on the software development front and some business development. We are now at the point where most of the Qi governance tokens have been sent to exchanges. Over 24 million of the 30 million airdrop tokens have been distributed to participating exchanges, and a lot more have been claimed by individuals who possess the private keys to their own Qtum holdings. There will never be 30 million tokens fully claimed, as that would require 100% of the Qtum token holders to exchange using the audited swap contract, which will never happen simply due…

There’s a lot to discuss, and we find it works best if we do this in TL;DR format so as not to create long documents. Articles in this format also allow researchers who are keeping tabs on multiple projects to stay up-to-date with QiSwap without having to sift through large amounts of material.

QiSwap Core Contracts

  • We plan to deploy more liquidity pools shortly. Currently there is only the Qtum Beets liquidity pool, which represents Qtum/QC. This is also our first Nitro Pool, where 1 million Qtum is being staked and the rewards (the stake) is being airdropped into liquidity…

  • A few exchanges announced they would support the QiSwap airdrop. this list includes: BigONE, Binance, Gate.io, Coinex, UpBit, Coinone, Bithumb, BiBox, OKex, and a few others.
  • An AMA was held in the Qtum telegram channel yesterday. The users online indicator said over 1000 people attended. The Tweet used as a ‘question board’ had over 256 questions on it prior to the event starting.


This article will be subject to continuous updates as long there are active incentive programs. This is the place to find the latest updates on supported exchanges and wallets, vital deadlines and so on.

If you see a suspicious link, or get approached by someone claiming to be from QiSwap, it is fraudulent. This article is the only full official source of information specifically for the QiSwap airdrop and Pioneers II program. No one associated with QiSwap will never ask for your private keys, or for anything of value.

If you are new to QiSwap and the QI token…
