First Quantum-Secured Blockchain Technology Tested


First Quantum-Secured Blockchain Technology Tested in Moscow...

Quantum computing is fascinating, but it's really early stages, so we don't know what it or where this technology will shape the space.  Will it be real quantum computing or a marketing hyped space ?  We all know half the AI space isn't even complicated machine learning algorithms.

But the super quantum computers could make the blockchain cryptocurrency double spend philosophy null and void and irrelevant.  Brute force attacks are cost prohibitive with normal computers. But brute force with a quantum computer,  Still expensive , but possible.  And that's today. Just imagine.  

Good start here in testing different strategies to combat this possibilities.

Distributed computing CALM - ness or not

Distributed computing and coordination is not a necessary evil, it is an incidental requirement of a design decisionThe key insight in CALM is to focus on consistency from the viewpoint of program outcomes rather than the traditional histories of storage mutation. The emphasis on the program being computed shifts focus from implementation to specification: it allows us to ask questions about what computations are possible.Interesting article and some good insight. Worth a read. https://blog.acolyer.org/2019/03/06/keeping-calm-when-distributed-consistency-is-easy/

Exempt crypto security laws
