Andreas Antonopoulos: Bitcoin’s Design Can Withstand Quantum Computer Attack
Could the NSA build a quantum computer that could break bitcoin? Bitcoin visionary Andreas Antonopoulos addressed this question in an audiotaped presentation posted on SoundCloud.
“It is certain that the NSA has already built quantum computers because Google has one at their data center, and if they have one, the NSA has one that’s ten times better, that costs as much as a moon mission, and can break encryption systems at a much better rate and with much more efficiency,” he said.

I think there would come a time that the computing power of a computer can and will break the design of bitcoins. Technology is rapidly changing and with it comes really great leaps from the current technology. Back in the 80s or 90s, they predicted that a kind of computer that will be portable would come out by 2050s. But it happened just in the 90s. So I think the possibility of a computer breaking bitcoin is relatively high and could be seen within 50 years probably.
