  • Quantum Proof-of-Work: The research showcases a quantum proof-of-work (QPoW) algorithm that leverages quantum computing for blockchain technology, offering a practical solution to significantly lower the energy demands of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, thus addressing environmental concerns.

  • Sustainability and Efficiency: This advancement signals a shift towards more sustainable computing by demonstrating quantum technology's potential not only in enhancing computational speed but also in promoting energy efficiency, marking a significant step towards the application of quantum computing in solving real-world problems.

VANCOUVER, BC, March 28, 2024 /PRNewswire/ - BTQ Technologies Corp. (the "Company" or "BTQ") (NEO CA: BTQ) (OTCQX: BTQQF) (FSE: NG3), a global quantum technology company focused on securing mission-critical networks, is pleased to announce groundbreaking research findings that redefine the energy efficiency paradigm in quantum computing. This significant advancement, discussed in an insightful blog post, introduces the concept of "Quantum Energy Advantage," shifting the narrative from quantum computing's speed capabilities to its potential in reducing energy consumption.

Historically, quantum computing has been heralded for its ability to solve problems at speeds unachievable by classical computing methods, a phenomenon often referred to as "quantum supremacy." BTQ's latest research, however, suggests that the real value of quantum computing lies in its superior energy efficiency. This revelation is crucial in an era where the energy demands of computational processes are skyrocketing.


The study delves into the fundamental differences between classical computing, which utilizes bits for information processing, and quantum computing, which operates with qubits. Qubits have the unique ability to exist in multiple states simultaneously due to the principle of quantum superposition. This characteristic enables quantum computers to tackle certain computational problems with exponentially lower energy consumption than classical computers, particularly in areas where traditional computing methods falter due to complexity.

One of the most compelling aspects of BTQ's research is its application to the blockchain technology sector, specifically concerning the energy-intensive proof-of-work (PoW) mechanism utilized by cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. By implementing boson-sampling, a method in quantum computing, BTQ researchers have developed a quantum proof-of-work (QPoW) algorithm that dramatically reduces the energy expenditure required for blockchain transactions. This innovation not only exemplifies a practical use case for quantum computing but also addresses a significant environmental concern associated with blockchain technology.

"Our findings mark a pivotal moment in the exploration of quantum computing, highlighting its potential to revolutionize both computational speed and energy efficiency," stated Olivier Roussy Newton, CEO of BTQ. "The application of quantum computing in reducing the environmental impact of digital networks exemplifies our commitment to leveraging cutting-edge technology for solving real-world problems. We stand on the brink of a new computing era, where quantum technology not only enhances performance but also champions sustainability."
