Term 23 - Quantum Computer

A Quantum Computer is a computer that uses quantum theory to do computing much faster than the current computers.

The problem this poses for Bitcoin is that this computer will be so powerful and fast that it will be able to crack the current cryptography that secures Bitcoin.

The argument against this is that the miners and node operators who maintain the network will find defensive ways to protect against this.
