understand and the hash functions theyre based on are already widely used. If so, the signature is valid. Although the, bitcoin network is incredibly secure under the current condition of computers, theres an even greater threat looming overhead. These signatures are much larger than their elliptic curve counterparts, though (about 169 times larger). This gives miners with quantum computers (presumably corporations, government agencies, or other power organizations) a major advantage, to the point of being considered a monopoly, on the bitcoin market. But there is still a major draw back.
The first is superpositioning. This is where you just keep checking different keys until you eventually find the right one. The reality, however, is there wasnt much disclosed that people didnt already know or expect. Fortunately, we arent done yet.

At the moment, billions of dollars have been spent on custom computer chips that do nothing but perform SHA-256 calculations. The problem is it would take billions or trillions of years for a modern computer to brute force a long encryption key. If it is malicious, it can spend bitcoins twice, by deleting transactions so they are never incorporated into the blockchain.
How I Cornered the. Bitcoin, mining Market Using a, quantum Computer (Theoretically!). So this brings us to how I used the quantum computer to solve the bitcoin. The massive calculating power of quantum computers will be able to break, bitcoin security within 10 years, say security experts.
