Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin is not impressed with the alleged threat to the cryptocurrency industry that comes from Google’s quantum computer.
Buterin commented on the news that Google had achieved quantum superiority on his official Twitter. This means that a quantum computer could solve the most complicated mathematical calculations for which any other supercomputer would need more than one thousand years. Buterin shared a strange analogy at first glance:
“My one-sentence impression of recent quantum supremacy stuff so far is that it is to real quantum computing what hydrogen bombs are to nuclear fusion. Proof that a phenomenon and the capability to extract power from it exist, but still far from directed use toward useful things”.
Earlier we wrote that Google created the most powerful computer in the world.
