Why Quantum Computing Inc. QUBT Is Not a Good Stock

Our recent piece on Robinhood pointed out how the company makes the majority of their money right now peddling extremely risky financial products to beginner investors (half of their client base). The company says that this is “democratizing the distribution of wealth,” but we beg to differ. The single most important quality a financial services […]

Quantum Computing Stocks Are Having a Moment

Quantum computing is like high school sex. Everyone says they’re doing it because they think everyone else is. For the few that are, it’s not as great as they say it is. And the only people that actually know how to do it properly are the teachers who never really talk about it. That old joke works […]

IonQ – A Publicly Traded Quantum Computing Stock

Quantum computing technology is like CBD. We’re told it’s this great wonderful thing that will solve all these problems, but nobody can actually tell if it’s working. That’s why we traveled to Vancouver, Canada to learn How Quantum Computing Software Gets Built by speaking with Landon Downs, Co-founder and President of one of the world’s […]

Is Quantum Computing Real or Just Vaporware?

The smallest unit of matter is an atom. It’s also where things start to get really weird. More than 99.99% of the atom’s mass is the nucleus. If the nucleus were the size of a car, all the nothingness around the atom would be about the size of the State of Utah, a place where […]

The Definition of Quantum Everything

In an earlier article, we talked about 10 companies working on quantum computing and promised our lovely readers a follow-up article on companies working on “quantum cryptography” and/or “quantum encryption”. As we sat down to write that article, we realized that we had no idea what quantum cryptography actually was. In fact, we don’t even […]

Has Google Finally Achieved Quantum Supremacy?

If you were a Mexican girl who was born the day Google debuted their IPO, you’d have celebrated your quinceañera this past summer. If you bought some shares in Google around the time of the IPO as we did, you’d be up +2,219% on your investment. If at the time you bought those shares you were broke […]

How Quantum Computing Software Gets Built

Quantum computing is kind of like your middle-aged alcoholic uncle who’s still waiting for his career in the major leagues to take off. Every time you talk to him, he’s almost managed to get that big break which is just around the corner. Even though you really wish it would finally get here, you’re kind of tired of […]

6 Quantum Computing Companies to Watch

One of the many problems we face with quantum computing, aside from getting it to work in the first place, is to prove that it’s actually doing quantum computing. In other words, we’re trying to make quantum computing “work” right now but we don’t know how to tell if it’s done something quantum because we […]

10 Quantum Computing Startups Getting Funded in 2018

If we had to pick the single most Sci-Fi sounding technology we’ve ever written about, it would probably be a toss-up between Kernel’s brain chips and quantum computing in general. Renowned physicist David Deutsche says that “quantum computation will be the first technology that allows useful tasks to be performed in collaboration between parallel universes,” a […]

Why Post-quantum Cryptography is Important Today

“Religious wars are basically people killing each other over who has the better imaginary friend” Napoleon once quipped, and no matter which God you worship, you should be able to find a bit of humor in that statement. Regardless of the reason for wars, they continue to be fought. Today’s wars not only take place […]
