Post-quantum cryptography is a field of study within cryptography that focuses on developing encryption methods resistant to attacks from quantum computers. Quantum computers have the potential to break many existing encryption schemes, as they can efficiently solve certain mathematical problems that classical computers struggle with. Post-quantum cryptography aims to create encryption algorithms that remain secure even in the presence of powerful quantum computers. This research is particularly relevant in the Web3 context, where secure and future-proof cryptographic methods are crucial for maintaining the integrity and confidentiality of digital interactions and transactions.
