Description

The Blockchain Hub and Quantum Computing Data Sciences present:

Quantum-Resistant Blockchains: Securing the Future

The potential capability of quantum computing to undermine standard cryptographic algorithms such as RSA and elliptical curve cryptography are widely known in the Blockchain community, and the effort to assess the impact is ongoing.

While the threat to standard encryption is most publicized, we also see some efforts to harness the nascent quantum computing resources for new Blockchain protocols.
