My talk “Is quantum computing about to break cryptocurrency?” at IBM CASCONxEVOKE conference

highlighting what quantum supremacy means for cryptocurrency and crypto mining.

My talk at IBM CASCONxEVOKE conference 2021

The top three takeaways from my CASCONxEVOKE talk about quantum computers and cryptocurrencies are.

  1. The biggest danger to blockchain-based cryptocurrency is a quantum computer’s potential ability to break traditional encryption
  2. A quantum computer that can decrypt current cryptographic ciphers of blockchains is more than a decade off
  3. The hazard of such a quantum computer is high enough that the prioritization of the development of post-quantum cryptography for cryptocurrencies is critical
