The FAQQ (Frequently asked Quantum Questions)

Quantum computing is a long ways away, there's no need to bother

Some experts predict it will be a problem for Bitcoin’s digital signatures within the decade. Even pessimistic estimates put ‘Y2Q’ at around 30 years away.

Who says it will take decades or years? Is there any credible source that will guarantee you it will take years? And I’m not talking about an explanation how hard it is and concluding that it’s impossible for the next decade. I’m talking about anyone who will publicly give you the guarantee that you can come claim your money if a quantum computer might get sufficient power faster than that?
