I'm excited to announce a new speculative series "Bitcoin Astronomy" about hyperbitcoinized humanity colonizing space.
Part 1 "The Law of Hash Horizons" follows the Muskcoin Revolution of 2140 and its consequences for bitcoin.
Lightning & mesh networks, PoW merging with energy production, the fracturing of nation states & global corporations, environmental degradation & mega-engineering marvels -- hyperbitcoinization delivers it all.
What happens on Mars?
Every PoW blockchain has a "Center of Hash". Mars is too far from bitcoin's Center of Hash for mining to work.
So we decided to simulate mining bitcoin at various hashrates and distances from Earth.
We open-sourced the code, so you can simulate, too!
Their revolution against bitcoin will be unique as it is a revolution against consensus, not a state.
But Muskcoin revolutionaries will have many means of defense.
We will expand through the universe like a fungus, seeking out artificial scarcity and energy (h/t @bquittem).
