NEO Devs (expecially CoZ folks) are a damned good group of folks. Intelligent and engaging. Feel free to drop buy NEO discord anytime and ask them...they will answer you best they can. I have zero "cred" there, I'm just a guy. I would not understand the technicals if they explained it to me.
I don't understand why you are so upset about an ICO moving to NEO to be more quantum resistant. Seems smart to me.
I am not at all upset about an ICO moving to NEO. That was merely one of several reasons the project switched to NEO. My concern is if NEO is really QC-secure or not - and is it now or is it a claim for the future of the blockchain? I'm guessing you underestimate your "cred" over there, but I will give it a try again and see if I can get some resolution in Discord in the dev-general channel. More to follow.
Update: The last 3 days I have posted the below in the NEO dev-general channel. The only response I've received is "maybe erik can answer". I've watched as nearly all other questions other people are asking are getting answered. So I post the same question again. I've posted this 4-5 times in the channel and received no response of any substance. Now I am going to switch to the NEO support channel (even though it isn't a support issue) but it is getting frustrating. Seems like some dev ought to be able to answer this question.....
Can anyone point me to more information on answers on NEOQS?
I've read this paragraph about NEO: "The emergence of quantum computers poses a major challenge to RSA and ECC-based cryptographic mechanisms. Quantum computers can solve the large number of decomposition problems (which RSA relies on) and the elliptic curve discrete logarithm (which ECC relies on) in a very short time. NeoQS (Quantum Safe) is a lattice-based cryptographic mechanism. At present, quantum computers do not have the ability to quickly solve the Shortest Vector Problem (SVP) and the Closest Vector Problem (CVP), which is considered to be the most reliable algorithm for resisting quantum computers."
Which lattice based cryptographic mechanism is currently (or in the future?) being utilized?
