From a mysterious edit on a viral Bitcoin prediction post to a new boost for the Litecoin network, here’s a look at some of the stories breaking in the world of crypto.
A crypto prophecy from a self-proclaimed “time traveler” has been edited – despite the fact that the creator of the post was banned from Reddit more than a year ago.
A Redditor with the username Luka_Magnotta created a post in 2013 saying he was writing a message from the year 2025.
The thread has since gone viral in crypto circles. It describes a bleak future in chaos, where governments have collapsed and tribal warfare runs rampant due to Bitcoin’s emergence as the only asset with stable value.
The altered post from 2013 still predicts BTC will hit $1,000,000 by the year 2021. However, the post now includes a preface, dated October 27th, that blasts Bitcoin’s development process and energy consumption, warning it should not be treated as an investment.
“As a Bitcoin investor, you’re paying for Chinese businesses to waste electricity by solving an abstract math problem that is designed to get continually more difficult.
Besides ensuring that many people lose vast sums of money while a small minority of early adapters is enriched, Bitcoin causes tremendous ecological damage in an era when we should be focusing as a society on reducing our carbon emissions.”
The post goes on to tout stocks as a better investment than both crypto assets and precious metals, and concludes,
“With that said, I hope this story has entertained you and helped you recognize some of the problems our society would face if we ever witnessed widespread adoption of Bitcoin or similar digital currencies.”
