Essentially I'm asking, what if I have designed a quantum-proof stream cipher that is faster than AES-256?
Will using less computational power for encryption/decryption be valuable to companies or various organizations?
I can imagine that faster and lighter encryption while secure enough could potentially cut down costs or give a competitive advantage to a business. (like Google)
However, I would highly appreciate it if you can bring up a few examples that the value of this could make someone pay for a more efficient* encryption algorithm.
*Faster, more secure & using less computational power.
