Stories of Orgonic Cryptology
This is the story of the most absurd bubble of all time: in the seventeenth century in Holland the price of tulip bulbs went up to the point that you could buy a beautiful house on a canal in Amsterdam for the value of a single bulb; was called - Tulip Fever - Then the market collapsed and gave you 10 bulbs for 2 dollars, people lost everything. But who remembers it more?.
"And who remembers him more?". Even those who remember this film quote would remember it badly. In fact, things did not go that way
Bitcoin is like the bubble of tulips? And if they were the tulips to be like Bitcoin?
Imagine a world identical to ours where tulips are coins.
As everyone knows, tulips are a special flower, they are exchanged all over the world in exchange for goods and services that have been forgotten for a long time.
In 2019 the tulips in circulation are exactly 17,485,425 and will arrive (allowing a careful and selected growth) in 2140 to the maximum reachable ceiling, or 21 million.
Unfortunately, nature is not 100% accomplice to the rules established by man and from time to time also gives life to wild tulips, uncensored and completely illegal. So it was that men, in order to remain faithful to their tulip-based economic system, decided to establish a higher control organ, the Tulip Police, which had the task of keeping every nascent tulip at bay trying to destabilize the limited number of tulips in the world. . A difficult and ferocious undertaking !! The Tulip Police (TP) was composed of an incredible number of insiders, just think, that to keep the 12 tulip gardens of an Eastern ruler at bay, we needed a staff of 1000 Tulip Officers; for every new tulip in the world an agent of the TP where to look for it, find it and eradicate it. A job that did not allow neither sleep nor peace for these special men!!
The reader will ask himself: And the immutability of the tulip as it was maintained?
Eh, another laborious question!
The tulips in addition to being monitored in the global number were also recorded in their properties over time. Tulips as perishable entities, subject to time and bad weather, were monitored one by one every minute, so that their "immutability" would be preserved! For each tulip there was a personal card, constantly updated by notaries from all over the world, in which they all indicated and I say "all!" The characteristics. For each tulip in the decadent phase an almost identical one was found (often it was a clone) that took its place at the moment of death. Every attempt at fraud constituted a crime, but the people hardly reached the prison, since almost all the population was employed as notary or agent of the TP.
Now, Bitcoin is remotely transmissible, and what about the tulips? How did tulip business work at the global level?
Well, if it was already a hard task to keep the maximum number of tulips and their characteristics at bay, the realization of every exchange was even more difficult! For each tulip exchanged, it was necessary to follow a long, cumbersome and expensive procedure together with a notary and a TP agent.
Imagine that Linda from Rome has decided to send 1.42 tulips to James in Milan:
Linda to send 1.42 tulips to James in Milan commits herself to a tiring bureaucratic process: she must find a notary and a TP agent that day available, and must necessarily have a large commission to pay for the service.
Here we are, Linda calls home notary and agent and explains them that she want to send James 1.42 tulips. The notary is preparing to manage a commodity contract for future tulips: "So, you commit to send 1 physical tulip with us today, the remaining 0.42 we "bring it on paper".
Let me explain: the second tulip of which we would like to distinguish the two parts 0.42 + 0.58 we define the change of ownership for 0.42 in favor of James with the contract that we ask you to sign and with the presence of at least 2 witnesses, in this case the agent and myself. We will make a copy of the contract, and the original will be recorded and stored in our archives in a perpetual and crystallized display case free to view the community, as well as leaving a copy to you and one to James.
The second tulip will still remain physically in its vase, but for 0.42 she will no longer be able to use it as notarized that that specific portion is owned by James".
And here the notary and the agent begin to certify the properties of the objects from the color tone of the petals to the age, the length, the count of petals and parasites, possible injuries and so on.
Once registered, the notary is consulted with the TP agent and they start to call Milan: in that city it is necessary to have 1 tulip as close as possible to the one in question to be physically moved. Once found, often in secret reserves of tulips guarded by the military and not exposed to the free market, Linda's 1 tulip is removed from the jar and destroyed, in its place now there is a tulip in Milan, "shipped" to James together with the contract signed worth 0.42 tulips + VAT. How exhausting!
In this short text we have imagined how some properties of Bitcoin can be transferred to tulips, obviously for other properties such as programmability or notarization the effort of imagination would be almost impossible, but we invite the most daring readers to try their hand and send us the their stories. This time we have taken as a starting point some notes and misunderstandings that we read for years in the newspapers while other more or less fantastic stories will appear in this new column here inaugurated: The stories of Orgonic Cryptology. See you next!
