What Has Predicted Time-Traveler From The Future
The post "I am a time-traveler from the future, here to beg you to stop what you are doing" amused many users in 2013. The user under the name Luka_Magnotta said that he wrote from 2025, when bitcoin became a threat to human civilization. The post notised that until 2015 the price of bitcoin will increase 10 times per year, after which the growth will slow down by half.
So, according to Luka_Magnotta, bitcoin cost $ 0.1 in 2010, $ 1 in 2011, $ 10 in 2012 and $ 100 in 2013. The next milestones the user named 2015 ($ 1000) and 2017 - this year the "newcomer from the future" predicted overcoming a level of $ 10 000. In 2019, according to him, the BTC will cost $ 100 000, and in 2019 - $ 1 million. After that, the coin allegedly ceased to be considered in dollars, because by that time the American currency would actually cease to exist.
Further, Luka_Magnotta outlined a gloomy view of the near future. By 2025, most of the world's states disintegrated, as the world's population switched to anonymous calculations using the bitcoins, which destroyed all taxation systems. In total, by that time, miners will issue 19 million BTC, several hundred thousand of which will irretrievably loose. On average, there are 0.001 bitcoins per person, with a population of just over 7 billion.
In the meantime, most of the BTC has concentrated in the hands of a small percentage of the elect, living in the so-called strongholds - fortresses, where stored the last working computers for mining. In addition, the planet has swept by a wave of terrorism, crime and kidnappings for ransom. For example, the famous twins Winklewoss have killed by one of the first for their bitcoin funds. In addition, after the division of Africa, the richest became the governments of Saudi Arabia (110,000 BTC) and North Korea (180,000 BTC).
In conclusion, Luka_Magnotta asks readers to prevent such a future and "strangle the damn project in the bud."
