IBM Has Introduced The First Quantum Computer For Commercial Use

Tech giant IBM presented the first quantum computer for commercial purposes Q System One. The invention can be used both for research and business purposes.
Despite the fact that IBM claims that the invention is the first universal system for quantum computing, it does not have enough capacity for many commercial purposes. IBM added that this was only the first attempt to create a system to solve complex problems and that it was amenable to upgrades.
In addition, the company has created efficient cooling systems for the hardware.
At the same time, the corporation announced the creation of IBM Q Network in cooperation with the oil giant ExxonMobil, the CERN and Fermilab. The purpose of the consortium will be to find working user-cases for quantum computing.
It is noteworthy that the design of the invention was created by Studio Map Project Office and Universal Design Studio, as well as Goppion.
Note, many researchers and some members of the community are convinced that quantum computers will be able to hack the bitcoin blockchain in the future. For example, at the end of 2017, an international team of researchers came to the conclusion that this would happen by 2027.
However, not everyone agrees with this opinion. Representative of the American Institute of economic research Jeffrey Tucker is convinced that the fear of quantum computing is based on ignorance and panic.
Recall that IBM is actively developing several blockchain-based platforms: the IBM Food Trust and TradeLens. IBM solutions were also involved in the launch of the platform for cross-border payments.
