It actually began years ago. Rekka loved the stories of his gramps about the lift-off of the blockchain-tech. He told him the tech got back to as old as 2009 with the Bitcoin! Ofcourse, the Bitcoin was the first generation. Over the following years there were multiple booms, everytime driving the price up to insane amounts, with new coins emerging all over the old Internet, after which there always followed a certain downfall. Like that crazy time, gramps told Rekka often, when the coin stood at $20 000, which was a huge amount according to him in the old currency. A year later, the price had dropped to no more then $4k…
That volatility was something the ‘crypto-market’ as it was called back then, was known for. Nowaday, in 2078, Rekka didn’t know better than Blockchain. Over the years, it had revolutionised both the old Internet, as well as the way everything was handled. You had privacy-coins for things like big purchases, public service-coins that had semi-transparent ledgers designed to take the hassle of paperwork out of the hands of the government and into a global decentralized system.
Then there was the new standard world-wide currency: the Uto. This revolutionary technology was invented by an independant group of data scientists and banks, to facilitate a new system where banks fulfilled a smaller role, but where users as well could play a part in. This made the world of transactions a Utopia, hence the name. Because of this huge ecosystem, the so-called 51%-attack was rendered nearly impossible. Because everyone had a device at home that was connected to this network, there were huge amounts of calculating power available, and because it was this spread out, it was thought to be impossible for criminals to take over more then 51% of the network, which was the requirement to change transactions and thus get ‘free money’ because they would control the network basically.
This Uto gave birth to a bunch of Tokens, sub-coins that had their own purpose on this whole chain, like the privacy-focused Pluto, the public service-focused Govuto, and a bunch of others.
Thanks to this technology where everyone controlled a part, the next evolution of the Internet was also made possible. An evolution where everyone could have there own website, with which they could even generate revenues in the form of Attuto, a token that was focused on rewarding the owners of websites for the attention of the user on their site. This method rendered the biggest annoyance of the past, advertisements, nearly to dead.
The new Internet was no longer an Internal Network, it was a worldwide user-controlled system, which got the new name WorldNet.
Well, there was one problem: the network was almost invincible, almost…
