Effect of Quantum Hardforks on Blockchain Currencies
Blockchain currencies organise coins as mathematically linked chains which keep growing indefinitely. A softfork is when the chain splits into two competing chains where eventually the longest branch wins, and the shortest branch is discarded. In contrast, a hardfork is when the chain splits into two incompatible chains that use different algorithms and formats, in which case the two chains become permanently separate and independent.
This Master's project focuses on studying blockchain currencies and the effects of public blockchain hardforks on the total market capitalization and monetary policy of the cryptocurrency market.
