Quantum Computing would have zero net effect on Bitcoin

Quantum computing would make the current cryptographic hashing algorithims used by bitcoin obsolete immediately, but bitcoin is designed to be modular. When the day comes that the algos in current use are no longer trustworthy, the bitcoin protocol includes a built-in upgrade path to more secure future algos. Yes, even this was considered early on.
