Humble Trader I would say that you are a bit sarcastic and not contributing to solution of the problem for those poor people. Why dont they just find few nice kids who are experts in system hacking and solve the mystery of private key? It is not so complicated. What do you think?

That is the whole premise of my having serious doubts about cryptos, all it takes is a good hacker or a computer which is faster and better, like the upcoming quantum computers and people will lose  their money before you can say Bitcoin.

The problem with the current situation is that each time you try a key and it doesn't work, there is a delay to the server which owns it, after x number of tries, you have to use another computer with another IP address. It is not impossible but it will take ages. And  that is the first step to get the computer which owns the wallets out of cold storage (cold= not connected to physically internet), then you need to start all over again, draining the funds from each wallet with its own key. Hali Luya!  :-X

Lol, you would need a few million years to hack a random wallet. With no inside information you can forget about it.

Maybe a million years or maybe a few seconds; it all depends on the technology at hand and how sophisticated it is or becomes... only "time" will tell.

Technology is developing. Quantum computers still dont have commercial use, but it is only question of time when they will. Another topic is 5G technology that is soon going to be a standard. China is getting prepared to introduce 6G within next few years. Think twice if hacking is not possible

It won't be possible. Crypto can move to quantum coding too...

What do you mean under quantum coding? It's two different technologies you can't improve anything in crypto (except security ) using quantum computer. As crypto offers volatility we have to take advantage from it and best way to do that is CFD contracts on crypto available in brokers like Tickmill, Hotforex

I mean crypto moves to quantum blockchain. Encryption is done with quantum computers... There was an article, but can't remember where I read it.

I suspect that the application of quantum computers will defeat the ledger system such that keys will be revealed and processed long before traditional computers can complete a single process, thus, the blockchain system will be rendered useless. It will be akin to the current swarming of a server causes the denial of service as used by hackers to overwhelm and cripple any peer to peer system.

Only time will tell. In the meantime keep away from cryptos, unless you like drama and surprises of substantial loss.

Oh I see, as I said it should be related to achieve better dealing with security issues.

First we're going to need widely available quantum computers, which is not reality yet.

Zaif, the Japanese cryptocurrency exchange, which last year lost over 60 million USD to hackers, will resume operations today, April 23rd, after a publicly listed Japanese investment firm Fisco took over the crypto business, paying 5 billion Japanese yen or roughly 44,7 million USD.


Zaif Crypto Exchange was hacked back in September 2018 and lost nearly 7 billion Japanese Yen or 62,5 million USD worth of Bitcoins, Monacoins and Bitcoin Cash.

I think that quantum computers will only provide higher speeds of data processing, which is generally very good. However, crypto world is still relatively young and it needs time to develop into serious market, especially when security of funds and transactions is in question

I imagine that quantum PCs will just give higher velocities of information handling, which is commonly awesome. Be that as it may, crypto world is still moderately youthful and it needs time to form into genuine market, particularly when security of assets and exchanges is being referred to

Anybody buying BTC from current levels or waiting for a drop to jump in? It's already above 7K
