Quantum Resistant Ledger (QRL) Stated that Ethereum (ETH) Could Go Quantum Computer Resistant Through “A Unique Smart-Contract”

By IQT News posted 16 Jun 2020

(CrowdFunding) The developers at Quantum Resistant Ledger (QRL), an externally audited “enterprise-grade” blockchain platform that claims to be secure against a potential (future) attack from quantum computers, stated that Ethereum (ETH) could go quantum computer resistant through “a unique smart-contract.”
The QRL team said that a project called EnQlave helps users secure their computers against a quantum computer attack. They pointed out that the Ethereum 2.0 fork will bring many improvements like sharding, zero-knowledge proofs (ZKPs), enhancing overall blockchain efficiency, and lower transaction fees.
They added: “It appears that quantum resistance is not on the Ethereum roadmap, so this is where I think the QRL team can help. Project EnQlave is an Ethereum smart contract that creates a quantum secure safe to store your Ethereum cryptocurrency….[this means, that] using your browser, you can access your Ethereum and transfer funds into a quantum secure safe, all while staying on the Ethereum blockchain.”
The QRL team recommended: “Due to gas costs, EnQlave works best as a long-term, post-quantum secure storage solution. It’s not something you’d want to move your funds in and out of every day.”
As of June 2020, EnQlave has been running on an internal test network (testnet) and the code is being audited.
