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

Unlike traditional banking where clients have only a few account numbers, with Bitcoin people can create an unlimited number of accounts (addresses). This can be used to easily track payments, and it improves anonymity.
