[Cryptography] Super-computer project wanted

I'm doing an online course in programming super-computers (think: 
massively parallel teraflops!) and we are invited to submit a proposal for 
a sort of post-grad project (there is no guarantee that it will be 
accepted, as machine time is scarce).

Suggestions include financial derivatives (but I'm not interested in 
trading), blockchains, etc.  And Bitcoin mining is not worth the 

So, is there anything that could benefit from a few parallel teraflops 
here and there?
