Quantum Computing is a looming security threat for the crypto community. Such computing can upend a blockchain by compromising its signature scheme, leaving data exposed and wallets insecure. Adam Koltun, Evangelist for the Quantum Resistant Ledger and expert in blockchain technology, and how it intersects with quantum computing, will discuss the necessary evolution of signature schemes to keep blockchain technology safe and open. While all tech will need to deal with quantum computing, there are unique challenges facing blockchain technology. As Adam explores the central question of what makes a blockchain quantum resistant, he will discuss such topics as One Time Signatures (OTS), the Extended Merkle Signature Scheme (XMSS), as well as other emerging best practices in quantum resistance.
