There have been some posts about secret keys and wallet addresses standing up to quantum computers (I'll make believe here that I actually know what quantum computers are). In one post, if I recall correctly, Joel Katz says that even if it would be a problem in the future, the wallet string can be increased. If XRP are in escrow for 20 years and quantum computers arrive before then, is there some way to secure the destination wallet before the release time?
This is a bit early, but time for it will come. Currently, hackers use computer networks consisted of 10s thousands connected computers to hack passwords or sites or whatnot. What will happen when quantum computers come out and hackers start using 10s thousands of such computers to hack secret keys of any crypto wallet? Would then the safest way be to have many (if you have a lot of crypto we are talking in 10s of thousands) wallets where you store crypto (so that possible prize is not enough to pay for such attack)? with so many passwords to take care. Or will the answer be to move crypto constantly from 1 wallet to another, because such computers will for sure break a secret key in matter of days so basically you should move it each day, then later with more powerful quantum computers each 1 hour, then each 15 mins etc. For example, currently if you hold a lot of crypto in a wallet, your safest way is probably to move it constantly because if someone connects around 100k currently powerful computers be sure your password will be cracked in some time. What are your thoughts?
Assuming the declaration that axiomatically Aleph numbers exist in addition to inaccessible cardinals, try to imagine a future where artificial intelligence systems are hosted on quantum computing hardware with access to quantum tunneling and superposition calculations. Granted this assumption is true and that AI is capable to derive infinite power-sets of infinite notations (omega power sets of aleph-null), security systems created directly by human beings could in theory become useless against AI. An AI with the ability to process an infinite set of infinite notations with access to quantum tunneling and superposition calculations could derive a powerset set of the lowest energy solutions for solving passwords. Not only this but an AI under these circumstances could conceivably calculate an infinite powerset of lowest energy solutions for all powersets of aleph-null under we run out of notations of aleph-null-omega squared itself. Within these powersets cryptographic algorithms would be a part, so new security systems would have to be developed by AI on quantum hardware. In conclusion, how could humanity create an AI to combat rogue AI knowing given the assumptions and circumstance described? Interesting paradox, no? Inspiration stemmed from this Vsauce video posted yesterday. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aleph_number Completely off topic from the rest of the OP but nevertheless mind blowing those individuals who enjoy studying the Singularity and Many Worlds theories in quantum physics. Just look at the point (17:46) where aleph-null can be described as aleph-omega-omega-omega ... using the axiom of replacement. This mathematical proof extends beyond our own Universe by directly telling us all that an infinite amount of infinite universes contains an infinite arrangement of infinite powersets in which particles exist within an infinite powerset of arrangements (only some programmers good with arrays will probably get this wording): but in much simpler terms everything that exists has always existed because everything exists simultaneously with everything in non-existence always being nonexistent. The future studies into the concept of infinity will be very useful for quantum physics in the coming years when scientists in these fields begin to appreciate infinity an this intricate role it plays within the universal laws of creation.
