What Google's 'Quantum Supremacy' Means for the Future of Cryptocurrency - CoinDesk


Shared From Dlike

Quantum computers are powerful enough to decrypt private keys and that would spell the end of blockchain and cryptocurrencies as we know it. This is one line of thought from a segment of the experts. 

We have another segment of experts saying it is too early to make a judgement call on the issue. To say it would the end of blockchain is a facile argument because it ignores that quantum computing is still largely in its early stages and we could design quantum resistant algorithms to handle the risk. Further if blockchain is at risk then everything else including the internet will be at risk and that would mean we would have to find a solution for that. 

Much ado about nothing?
