*Fiction / story post
Some years ago, there was a movie GI JOE, that featured the rise of the Cobra Commander. He was initially introduced as the mad scientist role for the leader. Then eventually, he has his own manifesto planned and executed, and his NEW organisation Cobra was created.
In Bitcoin, the Bitcoin Cobra Commander is mightily creative too. In his mind, it could be game theory taken from Nash. Pitting miners, users, nodes, developers “against each other”, or “co-op-petition” (cooperative competition), fused with a legendary genesis storyline, with a mysterious founder, that disappears in thin air, without a trace by any governmental surveillance or espionage body.
Of course, Cobra Commander’s main goal is Global Domination! ARH!! HAHA! (*suppose to come with protracted sinister villain laughter, or maybe soundtrack music from “Inception”)
Bitcoin Cobra Commander has that playing it out well. With Bitcoin topping the race, speeding ahead more than twice the second placed Ethereum. In late April, Investopedia noted there is 30 billion USD in total market capitalization. Four months later in August, it is 5 times more at 160 billion.
Creating segmented limitations in the design of the protocol, Cobra Commander knew groups would have to come on head to head, much akin like The Joker’s bluff in the Batman “The Dark Knight” play – two detonator devices on the hands of the other boat, of the opposing forces. Brilliant. Sinister?
Well, the eventually was still called “up to the consensus”, up to the market. If you recalled or if you haven’t watched The Dark Knight featuring Health Ledger (LEGEND!) – then take time to watch it.
Now, to the chagrin of purists, there is another set of Bitcoin. Bash (as I called it). Bashing the altcoins. Appearing in the Top 10 in the first day of it’s existence without any VC funding, fake CEO, lawyers, or ICOs. Bitcoin Cash. B-ASH. BCH. BCC.
Over the course of the next few years or sooner, like months, GLOBAL DOMINATION!
There will be one more. Two more bitcoins. Like Katy Perry or Michael Jackson. Not just one hit single from one album. BUT super awesome-ness, multi-hit-singles from a SINGLE album. Topping the charts all at the same time. Bitcoin will be topping the Number 1, Number 3, Number 8 positions. All other altcoins will be shivering, collapsing within themselves.
BASH already made Litecoin obsolete. Litecoin has 4X coins. 4X speed. 16X cheaper fees (than Bitcoin main). With BASH, it leapfrogged Litecoin. Perhaps Monero too will be obsolete when the next Bitcoin appears.
A group could setup Bitcoin with secure anonymous transaction (that is possible within the Lightning Network – or I call it the black box since those coins staked within it just mixes all transactions, cancels all out, and spurts out the final tally without showing who paid who paid what).
Another group could splinter Bitcoin to fully implement the sidechain Rootstock, built on top of Bitcoin that will obliterate the smart contracts world – aka Ethereum. Boom!
Another group could metamorph-tosis (metamorphosis + mitosis) Bitcoin into their original atomic class, Satoshi – and let them flood and eliminate those micro tokens such as Ripple, IOTA.
Yes, Cobra Commander – Global Domination (in the CoinMarketCap Top Ten Charts!)
