What do you all think, does this have an affect on bitcoin itself? Or is this approaching i different route of math equations?

If only there was some way to find all of the other threads on dwave, like this one from two days ago, or this one from two years ago...

I routinely ignore posters with paid advertising in their sigs.  You should too.

If only DWave actually produced real quantum computers.  To date, they have just been gimmicks, not actually harnessing the physical phenomena needed to ... work as a real quantum computer. 

Universal quantum computers are probably still decades off.  And that's what you need to apply things like Shor's Algorithm, which is what will break a lot of existing internet security (in addition to Bitcoin).
