Quantum Computing: Time for Change?

Contributed by Jordan Lydon
With the advent of modern computing and the desire to always have more compute power and faster access to data, some companies are beginning to look towards different options to potentially be on the forefront of the future of computing. A lot of big names in the technology industry, such as Microsoft, IBM, Intel and Alphabet, are investing in quantum computing looking to be the first to bring the technology to the mainstream computing world. The return on investment for these companies could be potentially enormous if quantum computing becomes viable for long-term mainstream use in server or workspace environments. The potential advancements that stand to come from moving to quantum wafers also come with their own set of risks, costs, education and security considerations.

By using blockchain technology as an underlying mechanism, DNS could have improved integrity and security, and using the peer-to-peer network, complete decentralization. There are already technologies providing DNS-like services using blockchain and can be looked to for an example of implementing DNS on a blockchain-based network.
