President Biden Signs Quantum Cybersecurity Preparedness Act into Law

US President Joe Biden signed the Quantum Computing Cybersecurity Preparedness Act into law last week. The legislation is designed to secure the federal government’s systems and data against quantum-enabled data breaches. The law aims to get ahead of the trend before quantum computing reaches the point in which they are

Why quantum computing isn’t a threat to crypto… yet

Quantum computing has raised concerns about the future of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology in recent years. For example, it is commonly assumed that very sophisticated quantum computers will one day be able to crack present-day encryption, making security a serious concern for users in the blockchain space. The SHA-256 cryptographic protocol

Crypto Insiders Edgy over Quantum Computing’s Looming Threat to Blockchain Security

Chatter on the cryptographic side of cryptocurrency has been growing over the past couple of years about the threat posed by quantum computing, an entirely new type of computer that would be many orders of magnitude more powerful than current ones — so powerful that many modern forms of encryption

Lawrence Gasman on Assessing the Business Impact of Quantum Technologies

Lawrence Gasman has researched and reported on quantum technologies from the beginning of the discipline of quantum computing. He is now the President of Inside Quantum Technology (IQT), which provides in-depth business intelligence for the quantum technology industry. IQT also runs several major quantum technology conferences as well as a quantum industry news service.

On this OODAcast we ask Lawrence to provide us with frameworks for understanding the state of quantum computing, quantum sensing, quantum security and the business around each of these major fields.

By Design, The Quantum List Companies are Strategically Structured for Exponential Speed and Scale

At some point, like artificial intelligence, quantum will be “in the midst of a real-world paradigm shift: the final stages  of a decades-long transition from the scientific discipline known as quantum computing (and its various sub-disciplines) into an array of applied quantum computing technologies made more widely available through innovative enterprise architectures unique to the business culture of the technology sector.”  Equally as interesting is that everything is now in place to continue to transform consecutive scientific disciplines (at exponential speed and scale) into the marketplace of solutions for the next few decades.

Exponential speed and scale have started to lose their ‘pie in the sky’ strategic implications and, based on the insights garnered from The Quantum List, are feeling progressively more tangible and tactical with each passing year. What we all intuited (when we first heard of and evaluated the promise of exponential technologies over the last eight to ten years or so, ) is that the next few decades could be (hands-down) one of the most breathtakingly transformative periods in human history

Could quantum computing bring down Bitcoin and end the age of crypto?

Quantum computers will eventually break much of today’s encryption, and that includes the signing algorithm of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Approximately one-quarter of the Bitcoin ($168bn) in circulation in 2022 is vulnerable to quantum attack, according to a study by Deloitte. Cybersecurity specialist Itan Barmes led the vulnerability study of the
