Quantum computers pose a systemic risk to the security of cryptography algorithms, which are the foundational building blocks of blockchain. In this presentation I will describe this risk in general, show a number of attack vector to the current implementation of cryptocurrencies and present a quantitative analysis on how many coin can actually be stolen. I will also discuss the necessary mitigation measures and the complexity of implementing them.
