IMHO, Quantum Computing Will Kill Banking as we Know It

Today's UK Register is the first to break the dilemma of Quantum Computing and banking (read it here). 

Surprisingly, it's Singapore that is leading the charge to educate the world. Specifically in the article, they lay out the beginnings of their case:

The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) advised on Monday that financial institutions need to stay agile enough to adopt post-quantum cryptography (PQC) and quantum key distribution (QKD) technology, without significantly impacting systems as part of cyber security measures.

Maybe there is finally an application for the block chain propeller heads to glom onto. And even then, I believe state actors with malicious intent can bring down the whole banking system.

Can't Charge Your Tesla this Winter in Chicago? Relax: Hydrogen/Fuel-cell Cars Are The Answer.

 I've been scraming to my biddies at Gartner and TIME Magazine that the EV/battery lobby has well and truly paid off the media and the politicians (Yuck it up, California!). EV stations in Chicago this winter have made public the idiocy of this technology.

I've long maintained that hydrogen/fuel-cell technology is the answer.

Short term, hydrogen compression and using existing internal combustion engines are the answer.

Long term, when we perfect the semi-permeable membranes in fuel cells, BINGO!

Haven't any of these battery geniuses ever done their college homework?

Gosh, it sucks to always be right.
