    1. Given the strong coupling between data andcryptosystems in blockchains, the potential vulner-ability of these cryptosystems to quantum attacks,the likely introduction of capable quantum com-puters in the mid-term future—not to mention theusual high monetary value of the assets secured byblockchains—it is important to more deeply under-stand their current level of vulnerability.

      Author states its motivation: - strong coupling between data and cryptosystems in BCh - the cryptosystems potential vulnerability to quantum computers - the likely introduction of quantum computers in the mid-term future - also the high monetary value of the assets secured plus momentum of BCh.
