Quantum Computers Pose Imminent Threat to Bitcoin Security /?id=2176:2017-quantum-computers /?id=2176:2017-quantum-computers Research by Assistant Professor Divesh Aggarwal and his colleagues have estimated that quantum computers might be able to break bitcoin's security as early as 2027. Bitcoin encrytion today is ensured by the difficulty of cracking its code using existing computers, but quantum computers will be able to work much faster because they are not constrained to working with bits (values that are either 0 or 1).
