SAFENetwork Quantum Resistant?


#1

Will the SAFENetwork/SAFECoin be quantum resistant? Here is an recent article on how quantum computing will disrupt bitcoin.

It has to be seen if, when and how quantum computing will work (see this post and the replies).
The SAFE Network uses mainly AES-256, which is quantum resistant unlike ECDSA, RSA etc (see also this post).

Although I’ve my doubts, there is a lot of quantum computing R&D:

China and Europe are also investing at least $1 billion.

This last paragraph seems to sum it up

But while some may be overselling the qubit’s codebreaking capabilities over the course of the next decade, researchers have already set their sights on alternatives to today’s encryption standards that may one day prove more quantum-resistant. And it looks like we might have a good few decades to work on those while quantum gets up to speed.
