On a Halloween night, 14 years ago
An anonymous and mysterious programmer, posted the solution to a computer science problem.
A problem once thought impossible to solve.
It was the invention of an all-powerful, uncontrollable, malware network.
October 31st 2008 will go down in history as the day Pandora’s box was opened
…when an irreversible curse was cast on humanity…
As it turns out, this digital invention was actually an unstoppable computer cancer
Set loose into cyberspace!
…14 years later…
…it has spread to the point of no return.
What’s even more scary is –
This shadowy mastermind…this mad computer scientist…
Like a ghost.
And remains unknown to this very day.
No one even knows if he is dead or alive, and yet, this invention has made her worth of over $30 billion.
In fact, she is projected to be the richest human on earth in less than 5 years.
And their invention has changed the course of human civilization forever.
This is a Halloween story scarier than any other.
Because this story,
The invention I was talking about ^
Well you probably know it best as “digital gold”
but isn’t gold at all…
In fact Bitcoin is actually orange
Like the color palate from the holiday in which it spawned…this Halloween nightmare has quite the interesting story ….
For you see, the unknown inventor of bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto, was a Cypherpunk
The Cypherpunks were a group of rogue anti-authoritarian computer programmers.
Digital liberty advocates and anarchists,
More like a A bunch of nerds! (back in the 90s) who were terrified of a future Orwellian surveillance state.
They decided to take freedom into their own hands.
Creating technology that no government or corporation could stop!
Bitcoin is the result of decades of research and development by the cypherpunks.
It is a fundamental breakthrough in computer science, information theory, fintech, economics, and cryptographic systems.
And it obsoletes our man made monetary institutions, like banks, corporations, and governments.
This is trust in math, trust in code, not in humans.
Bitcoin is the number one cryptocurrency for a reason, it’s the largest and most secure supercomputer on earth.
Bitcoin is immortal. It can’t be shut down, it can’t be banned, it can’t be hacked, it can’t be changed, and it can’t be controlled.
Bitcoin runs on its own without anyone in charge.
It’s a money that’s out of control.
It’s a virus that hijacks human greed,
A contagion that make its hosts filthy rich
Using game theory to infect the world with money beyond our control.
You might be wondering, what’s the point, why was bitcoin created? what’s the end game?
The cypherpunks designed bitcoin to end humanity’s monopoly on money.
And the corruption that comes with it.
Bitcoin is the separation of money and state.
Everyone intuitively understands that it’s all about the money. Always has been.
Imagine the most powerful tool of civilization, pried from the clutches of the elite.
Infected, outwitted, and unseated.
Bitcoin is just getting started.
If you don’t remember anything else about bitcoin, just remember this: No one controls bitcoin, and there’s nothing anyone can do to stop it.
On that fateful Halloween night, human civilization was changed forever.
Grab your popcorn, cus the next 20 years are going to be fucking wild!
