Assuming there are people who find themselves on the intersection of Bitcoin and Recreation of Thrones enthusiasm, which of the nice homes of Westeros can be BTC and which one(s) can be the usurper Bitcoin Money (BCH)/Bitcoin SV (BSV)?
Is Daenerys the Bitcoin of GoT?
On Sunday (April 15, 2019), HBO’s hit TV present Recreation of Thrones (GoT) returned to screens around the globe. Right here on Bitcoinist, we’d prefer to see if there are parallels between George R. R. Martin’s fantasy juggernaut and Satoshi Nakamoto’s creation.
Bitcoin has risen from relative obscurity to turn out to be one of many main speaking factors throughout pc science, finance, and politics — to say just a few.
Followers of the present may say that ‘the journey sounds a lot like that of Daenerys Targaryen.’ The dragon queen was born on Dragonstone within the midst of a storm (à la 2008 monetary disaster), pressured to dwell in hiding for many of her life, however now arguably essentially the most highly effective individual within the seven kingdoms.
Within the fifth season of the present, Tyrion Lannister captures Daenery’s arc with some apparent similarities with Bitcoin’s development, saying:
Once I was a younger man, I heard a narrative a few child born through the worst storm in residing reminiscence. She had no wealth, no lands, no military, solely a reputation and a handful of supporters, most of whom thought they might use that identify to learn themselves.
Tyrion’s monologue continues with the next traces:
After which just a few years later, essentially the most well-informed individual I knew informed me that this woman with out wealth, lands, or armies has one way or the other acquired all three in a really quick span of time, together with three dragons. He thought she was our greatest and final probability to construct a greater world.
What Concerning the Usurper and Others?
If the Targaryen dynasty is Bitcoin, then who can be one of the best candidate for The Usurper Robert Baratheon? The individual declaring to be the ‘legitimate’ king of Westeros – BCH, BSV, or each? Pretenders to the throne, destined to in the end flame out.
And what about those that additionally assist these pretenders? Bitmain incurred losses of a staggering proportion in 2018 by becoming a member of banners with BCH. BSV miners are but to be within the inexperienced, 5 months for the reason that bitter “war of the Bitcoin forks.”
Craig Wright and Calvin Ayre are on the warpath with those that dispute the previous’s declare to the Bitcoin cryptographic throne. Sounds quite a bit like Cersei Lannister and the late King Joffrey Baratheon killing all of Robert’s illegitimate kids.
Is Winter Coming For Altcoins?
Teased sparingly for many of the present’s run, the Whitewalkers and their military of wights bent on loss of life and destruction appear to be the first focus of this remaining season. Identical to Recreation of Thrones has an imminent nice struggle, many specialists say a day of reckoning is coming for altcoins.
Commentators like Matt Hougan of Bitwise Asset Administration, Barry Silbert of Digital Forex Group, and Wences Casares of Xapo all say many altcoins is not going to survive the cryptocurrency mass extinction occasion.
This little bit of premonition brings up an fascinating query – who’re the Whitewalkers of the cryptocurrency kingdom? Reply: rules.
Now, the place’s my dragon-glass (Bitcoin full node)?
