UM6P CEDOC- CC: Quantum Blockchain for Decentralized Applications
Mohammed VI Polytechnic University is an institution dedicated to research and innovation in Africa and aims to position itself among world-renowned universities in its fields
The University is engaged in economic and human development and puts research and innovation at the forefront of African development. A mechanism that enables it to consolidate Morocco’s frontline position in these fields, in a unique partnership-based approach and boosting skills training relevant for the future of Africa.
Located in the municipality of Benguerir, in the very heart of the Green City, Mohammed VI Polytechnic University aspires to leave its mark nationally, continentally, and globally.
Quantum computing and blockchain technology both hold promise for vastly increasing the volume of data that can be handled by computers. Transactions may now be executed in a decentralised and transparent manner using blockchain technology. The pros and cons of “Quantum Blockchain,” a system that integrates blockchain with quantum computing, are explored in this work briefly. Quantum blockchain opens the doors to looking at the feasibility of using quantum algorithms in blockchain-based systems to enhance their scalability, security, and consensus procedures. In addition, one can examine how quantum-resistant encryption has affected blockchain networks and study the impact that quantum attacks have had on the protocols now in use. Further, the potential uses of quantum blockchain technology by analysing quantum-safe smart contracts, quantum-secure data storage, and distributed ledger consensus can be explored. Although the research challenge lies in the complex relationship between blockchains and quantum computing, paving the path for a more secure and efficient future for the latter. For example, investigations are being conducted to determine whether or not it would be possible to combine blockchain’s distributed ledger technology and smart contracts with quantum technologies such as quantum computing, quantum cryptography, quantum networks, and quantum gates and circuits. To construct a stable and secure platform that is suitable for a broad variety of decentralized applications (Dapps), one can investigate the benefits and downsides of integrating these developing technologies. A few problems where one can work in detail include: • Designing, developing, and analyzing real-time consensus in Quantum Blockchain-based decentralized networks for Decentralized Applications. • Analyzing quantum-safe security solutions for real-time decentralized applications using quantum blockchain. • Performance analysis (in terms of scalability, interoperability and throughput) for real-time quantum blockchain-based Dapps.
