I think there needs to be a technical discussion on this; I put to everyone a simple question:

Once Quantum Computing is in a form that is available to any social entity (ie not just a lab, but a government/company/person can buy one) will this seriously threaten if not outright destroy bitcoin mining? And the entire Bitcoin economy?

Thanks

The grue lurks in the darkest places of the earth. Its favorite diet is adventurers, but its insatiable appetite is tempered by its fear of light. No grue has ever been seen by the light of day, and few have survived its fearsome jaws to tell the tale.
