Google’s Nascent Quantum Supremacy has “Zip” Effect on Bitcoin
In case you have not heard… Because Quantum is Coming. Qubit.
Antonopoulos: Google’s ‘Quantum Supremacy’ Has No Impact on Bitcoin
+ “What is the effect on mining and the cryptocurrency world in general? Zip, bupkis, nada, nothing really happens,” he summarized.
Bitcoin (BTC) has “zip” to fear from the latest advances in quantum computing from Google, one of the industry’s best-known figures has confirmed.
+ “Quantum supremacy, what Google described, is demonstrating the practical applicability of quantum computers to certain classes of problems,”[Antonopoulos] explained. [He] continued: “Those classes of problems are not the same classes of problems we’re talking about when we talk about breaking cryptography.”
+ Nonetheless, becoming quantum-resistant, at least in terms of signature algorithms, is on Bitcoin’s roadmap as a necessary step, he added.
