I stared at my bright computer screen. My eyes felt heavy, and my fingers trembled nervously with each key press. We'd already been awake for more than five days, during which time twenty-eight players had died. “I don't wanna die,” Louis typed into the chat. “I'm not so sure you will, there's only the two of us left. I can't keep this up much longer.” The game had seemed so simple. A competition to see who could stay awake the longest, and the winner would receive enough money to last a lifetime. For someone like myself, without a social life, nor a job to attend, it was the perfect opportunity. Thirty players had received an invitation, all active participants of an international dark web forum. We were just required to fill in some necessary information, including a bitcoin wallet to where the money would be sent. After clicking submit, I was given a time, and a list of simple rules to follow: 1: Both your web camera and microphone must be activated for the entire duration of the competition. 2: There won't be any bathroom breaks. Plan accordingly. 3: You're not allowed to seek out the physical location of the other contestants. 4: There can only be one winner. As I eagerly awaited for the first bit of excitement I'd seen in months, I stocked up on the necessary supplies; mostly energy drinks, snacks and a bucket. Once the time of the competition started, I clicked the provided link. I was faced with a black screen, only comprised of thirty names and a chat box. I could gain access to each of the competitors camera feed by clicking on their user name, but the chat itself was global. “I guess no one here speaks English?” Insomnia90 said. A few of the participants responded with broken sentences. It seemed that out of the thirty members of the chat, only myself and Insomnia90 were native speakers. Two days went by in the blink of an eye, and seven players had already left the game in silence. I spent most of my time watching movies and chatting to Insomnia90, who I'd come to know as Louis. He was a Canadian university student on break, bored out of his mind. “Hey, check out the German guy, he's about to pass out,” Louis said. I clicked on his username. It would be the first participant we'd actually see falling asleep. His eyes were already half closed, and his body shifted towards the edge of his chair. We chuckled at the guy, as we got one step closer to victory. Not long after, his consciousness wandered of the edge, and fell into a deep pit of sleep. Only a second passed, before his eyes shot back open in horrified panic, as he clutched his ears and screamed in agony. His body started twitching uncontrollably in all the wrong direction, and blood poured from his nose and ears. It looked as if his brain had been scrambled to pieces inside his own head. Within a minute, he fell over dead. His face softly resting on the keyboard. “What the fuck was that?” I asked. “Is he dead?” Louis replied. I frantically started clicking on every other username, checking if anyone else was about to fall asleep. “Check the Swedish one!” I said. Sure enough, he'd drifted off no more than a minute earlier. Suddenly his eyes shot open and he seized just like the German had before him. Another minute, and he just added to the rapidly growing pile of corpses. We warned the others as best we could. Only a few of them seemed to get the message, each getting out from their chairs in an attempt at fleeing. Alas, no sooner had they decided to run, before they dropped dead on the floor. “Oh fuck, oh God! We're going to die, aren't we?” Louis half asked, half stated. “I guess only the winner survives...” I typed back. Three days passed. During that time, we made numerous attempts at contacting the outside world; phone calls, emails, messages, they were all blocked. Louis and I were the only players left, keeping each other awake as we futilely searched for a way out. I'd already ran out of supplies, so if sleep deprivation didn't get me, dehydration would. Then I noticed that Louis hadn't spoken in a few minutes. “Louis, no! Wake the fuck up!” I called out to no avail. He had already died. As he left the game, I was declared the winner. Twenty-nine people had died, and I was gifted an unfathomable amount of cash. Since then, I've been searching for Louis' family. Even if they weren't close, I want them to know that he was a good person up until the end. I'm so sorry, I wish it had been me. WATCH
Seeing what is happening with BTC, it's obvious what's going to happen in the future of crypto (MMW)
From the shift in narrative of what Bitcoin really was intended to be, to intentionally keeping the blockchain expensive to suit this narrative, it has made me come up with a few "predictions" about what is going to happen in the future of Bitcoin and Bitcoin Core. Seeing as this narrative needs to be maintained, here's what I personally think will happen in the near future of BTC:
The fees will start to get expensive, as expected (this is a given if a bull-run happens, or naturally as more users join the network). As a response to this, not only will Bitcoin promote the Lightning Network, Cashapp (owned by Jack Dorsey) will completely cover transfer fees at a loss, so that this looks like a non-issue from the outside.
After the Lightning Network gets promoted, there will be a significant number of routing issues as a larger user base tries to use it. All discussion about the high on-chain fees and routing issues will be completely censored from Bitcoin so that the public opinion on Bitcoin can be manipulated and maintained.
Eventually people will accept the shortcomings of the Lightning Network as a "small price to pay" for the most secure currency, and this narrative will be maintained on Bitcoin, with the premise that "having a few routing issues with transactions is a small price to pay for the most secure network, and the future of money".
As a workaround for these routing issues, eventually Lightning Hubs will form. Cashapp, LNBig.com (which is also already centralizing the network), Blockstream, and Lightning Labs will be the main nodes to go to for liquidity. Obviously, nobody is going to provide great liquidity for free, so this will lead to higher fees because it is a great way to profit. This business model will lead to fees based on percentage (instead of being flat), as the argument behind it will be the greater the funds, the greater the risk.
Effectively because of this, Bitcoin will just become PayPal 2.0. It will still be on CNBC, and the price will be high, but that's all people are going to focus on, price. The market will continue to stagnate sideways continuously, and CNBC will treat it like a stock. People can use Bitcoin, but it will require KYC, and instead of being cheap, it will be the new bank where instead of paying bank maintenance fees, people will pay channel maintenance fees for using Lightning Hubs.
After all this, I also expect that Bitcoin will be accepted as a payment option just like Visa and Mastercard because KYC is still required so the government, and regulators won't be afraid of it. It will have fees just like any other payment processor, but the demand for it on deep web markets will diminish for obvious reasons. Monero will be in demand for those purposes, and for obvious reasons. I suspect that the price will perpetually (and intentionally) be kept sideways.
