Can I build my own supercomputer? So, although you could (theoretically) build your own supercomputer, the reality is that most companies never need that level of processing power. The cluster technologies underlying modern supercomputers is important however – they show the value and potential of using off-the-shelf servers.
Can I buy a quantum computer? So, even they do exist, unless you have a few million dollars you don’t need, you won’t be able to buy a quantum computer today. At the same time, quantum computing is one of the most promising technologies. It is a technology you may want to start learning today rather than tomorrow.
Can quantum computers mine Bitcoin? As it stands, while quantum computers may one day possess the ability to severely undermine crypto mining and the integrity of blockchain-based networks, the current technology is far from being sophisticated enough to cause any serious concern.
