87: Quantum Resistant Ledger

Resistance is Futile!

Decentralized ledgers are secure and unbreakable until…. quantum computing. The Quantum Supremacy race between China, USA and Europe is on…Quantum computers are coming faster than anticipated.

 

Enter Quantum Resistant Ledger

Adam Koltun, Evangelist for the Quantum Resistant Ledger and Co-Hosts Ian and Ethan discuss the technology threat and security challenges for distributed ledgers and what it means for the current cryptocurrency landscape.

 

  • The reality of a adding Quantum resistance to existing blockchains. (Hint: It is easier to implement changes in the initial codebase than to add them later.)
  • We don’t need (should not) to wait for Quantum Supremacy
  • A single actor could disrupt the cryptocurrency economy at any time
  • Companies are making a lot of public progress / while Government programs have likely made more progress than they advertise
  • Upgrading in cryptocurrency is not easy. BTC is an example of political struggles
  • The future quantum resistant ledger
