In 10 to 15 years, a quantum computer with logical cubits is expected to come and the U.S. National Security Agency and National Institute of Standards and Technology see this as a potential threat.
Since 2015, these agencies have been preparing for this and are already developing standards for post-quantum cryptography. Along this line, looking ahead to the future and preparing for all contingencies, the Cellframe Blockchain project aims to be the perfect response against the “quantum threat.”
This revolutionary and groundbreaking initiative represents the fusion of the best solutions for the upcoming challenges of the post-quantum era while also offering progressive new ideas for existing systems.
It aims to introduce its self-developed next-generation quantum-resistant blockchain that is based on 100% proprietary C-code, optimized for high load.
At the same time, it will also include all the top modern features of existing blockchain technologies, combing the past, present and future to tackle this imminent threat.
How the system works
All blocks on Cellframe’s chain have byte arrays at the end which are divided into sections. These sections can include key data such as transactions, transaction requests, distributed application code, application data, public keys or service announcements.
Every section can encompass a lot of varying items. For example, the transaction section can contain items such as input, output public key and signature.
The project’s code is written in high performance and a small number of minor support functions like JSON parsing or mining that are based on 3rd party code. Everything else is proprietary.
Ensuring the future
Cellframe’s ultimate goal is to create the most secure and scalable blockchain.
As world powers prepare for the threat of the quantum, Cellframe, here and now, looks to establish itself as a reliable option to fend off issues that may arise in a post-quantum era.
