My talk “‘Quantum supremacy’ — is quantum computing about to break cryptocurrency?” at Women of Silicon Roundabout conference

My talk at Women of Silicon Roundabout 2021 conference

to deliver my talk about “’Quantum supremacy’ — is quantum computing about to break cryptocurrency?“, highlighting what quantum computing means for cryptocurrency and crypto mining.

The top three takeaways from my WinTechSeries 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
