I find the search for "better than curve25119 curves" quite
If you're really looking for something stronger you likely want
something post-quantum. However the trouble with post quantum is that
right now nobody really has any confidence in any of the algorithms.
But people work on that, there's been some nice progress lately.
Realistically: Nobody is every going to break 128 bit security level.
When curve25519 breaks it'll very likely be because of quantum
computers. But then e-521 will only provide very little extra
