Which disruptive technologies will flourish, and which are likely to have the greatest future impact on our lives?

Will future currencies such as bitcoin, Etherium, Ripple or Litecoin replace national currencies throughout the world? With the advent of quantum cryptography, will current security protocols in financial services be threatened by super-intelligent quantumcomputers able to unchain blockchain and disrupt data transmission?
