Expert: Blockchain can deal with quantum hegemony from three aspects

On November 7, Fan Xinxin, a cryptography expert at IoTeX, a private IoT blockchain platform, said that the blockchain community should immediately address three issues to prevent it from being surpassed by quantum computers. He outlined three directions that the blockchain community needs to address as quickly as possible, including "anti-quantum" encryption standardization, encryption flexibility, and blockchain governance. He said: "There is no doubt that quantum computing is coming, it will have a major impact on the entire technology field. But those who think that its arrival will ring the death knell for the blockchain do not take into account that the blockchain will also follow the quantum. The development of computing has evolved. There are still many things to do to make the blockchain more dynamic and robust. If we do this, we won't have to worry about quantum hegemony soon."
