Will Bitcoin be hackable with Quantum Technology?

In principle, it cannot be assumed that one can prepare a so-called entangled state in such short time intervals after successful measuring processes. A quantum computer with so many qubit operations per second would need only 107.9 billion years to find the public key instead of 4 * 10 ^ 52 years. This is still much bigger than the age of the universe!

Admittedly, there is another algorithm that promises a cubic runtime optimization. With this, a quantum computer, in the case of 10 ^ 17 qubit operations per second, could crack the connection between wallet address and public key in 15 years.

According to Edward Snowden, the NSA is working on a cryptography-focused quantum computer.
