One thing that makes bitcoin so popular is its security. With just a 12-word seed phrase and a cold wallet, you can store your net worth and transport it across the world, out of the reach of tyrants and thieves alike.

But what if there were a secret danger to the bitcoin protocol?

What if a new advance in computing stood to permanently break the encryption standard that lies beneath bitcoin...and the rest of the global financial system?

We've talked a lot about quantum computing on the Futurati Podcast. In many of these conversations, we've touched upon the threat of breaking the encryption that crypto relies on.

This is the first time, however, we're talking to an expert who works directly on solving this problem.

Michael Strike was a computer architect for 20 years before turning his attention to creating the Quantum Resistant Ledger, a blockchain ledger that can withstand the emergence of quantum computing

It's a fascinating conversation touching upon what could be one of the defining problems of the 21st century.
