Qilimanjaro – a project aiming at opening the world of quantum computation

Qilimanjaro is a project aiming at opening the world of quantum computation to every company and individual, without the need of acquiring an expensive quantum computer, neither being enrolled in a certain university or program, or undertaking expensive partnerships with large players in the quantum computation industry. In particular, their project revolves around the following pillars:

• Create an accessible quantum computer
• Provide a translation software service by adapting classical problems into quantum algorithms
• Proceed with the development of a universal open source quantum computation language (Qibo)
• Create a community of users where contributions are rewarded, with the goal in mind of empowering the current quantum software ecosystem.

Qilimanjaro is structured in two teams:

• Qilimanjaro Computing Services (QCS).
• Qilimanjaro Software Services (QSS).

Qilimanjaro Computing Service (QCS)

Enabling remote access to quantum computers through a cloud service is a crucial factor nowadays to be competitive. A broader community of users will grow as more quantum computing platforms become available online. The Qilimanjaro Computing Services (QCS) team will focus on building a quantum annealer based on coherent qubits to be accessed through a cloud-based platform. The quantum annealer will allow individuals and companies to explore the possibilities of quantum computation at a low price. The QCS team will develop a simple, user-friendly interface providing external users with editing capabilities to build custom programs. The online editor will contain a set of tools to compile quantum algorithms to be batched on the online quantum computer platform. A virtual machine based on Qibo will permit users to test their programs against simulated realistic conditions before trying the actual device.

Access to the quantum computer in the cloud

Running a quantum algorithm, properly designed, should be easy. One would like to simply write the code on a simple interface and send it for execution on a quantum device. Qilimanjaro QSS targets this goal directly providing a set of tools to ease the access and use of quantum computers. The simplicity of this procedure will open the door to individuals exploring new techniques to solve open problems. The quantum device acts as a blind computational device which is rented on the basis of individual runs, which in turn are associated with the QBIT token.


The Qilimanjaro Crowdsale and the corresponding token creation process will be organized around smart contracts running on Ethereum. Participants willing to support the development of the Qilimanjaro Project can do so by sending Ether currency to the designated address. By doing so, they are purchasing QBITs Tokens (QBIT) which are sent instantly to their wallet.
• The accepted currency during the ICO is Ether.
• If the token sale campaign does not reach its minimal capital goal of EUR 8.000.000 all funds will be returned automatically to the QBIT holders by the Ethereum smart contract.
• Token Creation has a hard cap: upon achieving this cap, token creation will stop, and no further contributions will be accepted.
• Tokens that are not sold during the Crowdsale will be burned automatically by the smart contract. The burning of tokens could potentially increase the appreciation of the remaining QBIT tokens as the total supply in circulation reduces.

QBIT Token Usage and Mechanism

QBITs (pronounced as [kiúbits]) are ERC20-compliant tokens which are necessary to participate in their platform to obtain a service, and to reward various parties who will help building the Qilimanjaro ecosystem. In this way, they favor the creation of an entire financial open platform. QBIT tokens will be the only accepted currency used in the Qilimanjaro ecosystem. QBITs can also be hold to obtain an extra service or benefit. Therefore, the token’s flow is made between token holders, developers and practical users.
