- Cryptocurrency experts have warned the Bitcoin to be aware of China’s quantum computer
- The computer is capable of solving impossible calculations within minutes according to claims made by the country
- This could possibly cause the destruction of Bitcoin and other altcoins, because of the breach in security that may occur
Bitcoin tread with caution as China’s quantum computer could cause the possible extinction of the cryptocurrency.
China May Destroy Bitcoin Completely
Bitcoin (BTC) has been continuously in the news for the crypto’s massive volatility this month. Investors have gained and lost in the span of mere weeks. Numerous economists have questioned the long-term validity of the digital asset. And now the coin is under possible threat from China’s recently introduced quantum computer.
The world’s leading cryptocurrency functions on a blockchain network, which incorporates complex numerical calculations. These require a solution by “miners” to secure the supply and transaction of BTC. This functionality is under the gun due to the creation of a new machine by China.
China has stated that the quantum computer can solve various equations in a matter of a few minutes, which were impossible to solve in the past. This public assertion has sent waves of panic across the crypto industry. Google also has announced a similar development, which claimed to have successfully created a quantum computer in 2019. According to the multinational tech company, it could complete a task within 200 seconds, which would have otherwise taken any other powerful computer about 10,000 years to finish.
Crypto Security Could Be Broken Within Minutes
China’s quantum is allegedly the most superior creation in the space so far. Compared to Google’s statements, China’s computer is capable of solving calculations in less than 200 seconds. The quantum computer is being referred to as Jiuzhang, and utilised 100 inputs and outputs, along with 75 mirrors, 50 photons and 300 beam splitters. This is how it achieves massive computing abilities.
The developers have firmly established their advancement in terms of research-oriented towards international quantum computing. As per a report published by the South China Morning Post, the machine will not be able to decode information that is encrypted, such as that of Bitcoin. However, teams at leading quantum computing companies believe that it is only a matter of time before such a development takes place which will have the ability to decrypt data.
