Lecturer in Digital Transformation at the University of Passau
I am VERY HONORED to be appointed as lecturer for a teaching assignment in Digital Transformation at my alma mater, the University of Passau
I am humbled to have taken the stage at the University of Passau to deliver my lecture “‘Quantum supremacy’ — Is quantum computing about to break cryptocurrency?”,
highlighting what ‘quantum supremacy’ means for cryptocurrency and crypto mining.
The top three takeaways from my University of Passau lecture about quantum computers and cryptocurrencies are:
- The biggest danger to blockchain-based cryptocurrency is a quantum computer’s potential ability to break traditional encryption
- A quantum computer that can decrypt current cryptographic ciphers of blockchains is more than a decade off
- The hazard of such a quantum computer is high enough that the prioritization of the development of post-quantum cryptography for cryptocurrencies is critical
