In 2009, Satoshi Nakamoto launched 2 blockchains.
Here’s a thought experiment.
It’s January 2009 and Satoshi Nakamoto is about to create the genesis block and launch Bitcoin. Simultaneously, he creates another genesis block, and calls the second blockchain: “Cloudledger”.
In Bitcoin, every 10 minutes, miners are rewarded with 50 Bitcoin to secure it. The genesis block contains its famous quote.
The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks.
In Cloudledger, every 10 minutes, verifiers are rewarded with 50 Ledger Tokens to secure it. The genesis block contains a different quote.
The Times 03/Jan/2009 Israel prepares to send tanks and troops into Gaza.
It’s exactly the same. Only thing that is different is the terminology. Any references to coins, money, finance & currency and such is not existent in “Cloudledger”.
What happens next?
