Intel is already starting to test the smallest chip for quantum computing. How would this affect Bitcoin in a few years? bitcoin should start right now to work seriously with the security of its network to avoid disaster.

Let's say they've successfully made it and became reliable, so in next few years we could expect that Intel can do whatever it likes to Bitcoin  Shocked.
A 51% or higher computational power would be too easy for them to conduct an attack on the network.

Well, I'm not a technical guy and I really have no clue how the core developers can adjust on this threat.


Quantum computer poses a threat only on the encryption. I misread the article below..

For some references since the OP didn't include any:
Quantum Computing Becoming Real
Quantum Computers Pose Imminent Threat to Bitcoin Security

On a side note, so it would be possible also to generate a complete character case sensitive bitcoin address using a quantum computer.
