- Deeply skeptical about whether or not quantum computers can be mass-produced. We tend to have faith in technology just getting there automagically. Which means…
- Quantum computers will be machines for large organizations and the moneyed. I doubt someone will build one in their garage.
- So, preparing cryptographic protocols to be quantum resistant is EXTREMELY important.
But let’s put it into perspective. Right now, we have machines running 128 qubits. To comfortably break 2048-bit RSA, a machine would need millions of qubits.
So – the important thing here is to prepare. Because this Y2Q, if it comes, won’t happen tomorrow.
Team IOHK definitely on it.
