yeah it pretty much boils down to that in bitcoins case. imo we should just let it die at some point.
> Can you recommend any books about quantum resistant/safe cryptography ? It's a field that is not covered by my textbooks or classes
That's the thing. It's an emerging field. I haven't read any book about post-quantum crypto yet. I suspect because there aren't many. I suggest reading new publications. Academic papers is where all the action is. If you spot something that sparks ur interest, stick with it, try to improve it and publish smth yourself or alternatively build smth based on it.
There's lots of stuff on quantum computing tho. Fascinating material anon. Have at it and stay ahead of the curve. Quantum supremacy race will dwarf turings work.
