What is a Quantum Ready state?

Nowadays many are curious about what the digital age and technological advancement can bring them in the long run and are not aware of the rising threats, which are actually much closer than most people think.

The technical progress unstoppable march had increased its speed remarkably during the last 100 years of history. The first part of the XX century had presented many fundamental scientific developments.

1st quantum revolution

Long before the Quantum Mechanics concept became as we know it today, many ideas regarding the technology use and implementation flew in the air. Pioneered by Einstein, Heisenberg, and Schrödinger among others, the first quantum revolution gave birth to such significant inventions such as superconductivity, transistors, microelectronics, lasers, fiber-optic communication and so on. The first-ever atomic bomb explosion had marked the actual start of it — when little effects produce macroscopic technologies.

2nd quantum revolution

Technically speaking, the second quantum revolution had started since a wide availability of quantum technologies, and it still goes on. The particular milestones mark the usage of a single quantum particle for humanity everyday routine purposes — some examples include magnet field orientation detectors in every modern smartphone, wideband wireless technologies like WiFi and more others. The top essential features are still on the way and are in development. Some people call this state “Quantum Ready”, — a situation when we’re almost ready for quantum technologies widespread implementation in our causal life.

The quantum computing should be considered as a significant disruptive force of the future’s coming decades. From medicine to agriculture, through finance and industries, the quantum computing will impact many aspects of people’s lives. It will address the real explosion of digital data generated by Big Data and the Internet of Things and the significant advances in deep learning and artificial intelligence will.

Basically, we are currently on the threshold of the quantum computers running on universal qubits stepping in and a crazy breakthrough in the volume of calculations. IBM is describing the current state of the technology designs, developments and implementation as Quantum Ready — when the humanity had created the whole foundation for a further colossal quantum technology development leap.

Cryptography overview

There are two big classes of encryption algorithms which exists — the symmetric and asymmetric ones. The future technologies advance fast, and even the first quantum computers will have enough power to could crack current existing blockchain security systems in no time.

The Post-Quantum algorithms are developed to should stay actual and in-demand after the 2nd quantum revolution. They should give an ability for the traditional computer to keep their communications protected from future’s quantum crack. It is essential to understand that they are not a universal decision so far. Most of them based on algorithms that need to keep the significant amount of intermediate values and have substantial private keys.

The Cellframe project is aimed to come up with long-term-needed solutions to many existing and accumulated problems such as scalability, security and transaction speed.

Cellframe project represents a quantum resistant blockchain of the new generation based on 100% original C-code, optimized for high load and merged all the modern features of blockchain technologies. One of the essential features is variative Post-quantum algorithms to make Cellframe quantum resistant and survive the Quantum Apocalypse.

The specific features announced for implementation from the start include the ring signatures, variability in different encryption and wallet types, multichain & sharding support, enhanced speed, Smart Contracts and Open API for 3rd party coins and projects and so on.

Cellframe project itself is flexible to implementing cryptographic algorithms which will make it one of the safest blockchains ever existed with 10+ signature available from the start.

The multichain technology allows creating almost an unlimited potential for speed and productivity. Cellframe can launch up to 2 parallel subchains, and the transactions can be placed in any block the parallel chain. More subchains — more tx throughput. Moreover, every subchain can have its attributes (a type of consensus, size, and speed of block, etc.).
