(Decrypto) Blockchain’s cryptography relies on the fact that it’s very hard to calculate private keys from public ones. Leaders in the cryptography field are hard at work on developing new, quantum-resistant cryptographic techniques that could one day be used to secure blockchain. Let’s take a look at what’s going on:
1. NSA is developing quantum-resistant cryptography.
2. NIST is running a competition.
3. QRL is using an extensible address format to ensure that it is “ready for anything out of NIST.”
4. Praxxis–a quantum resistant crypto project.
