Folks, this is what I personally think (guess) happened in 2017, and I’d like to hear what others might think on this topic.
I guess we all know that cryptos is a massive threat to the Banksters who have been controlling the world for ages… so it stands to reason that they have a plan to “protect their interests” > I think it would be foolish to assume that they are just going to sit by and watch their control vanish.
I sat lurking thru from Jan. 2017 onward, and was astonished to see BTC’s price continuously rise, and in particular in Nov/Dec. where I just could NOT accept the reality of what I was seeing on the charts. BTC. users and transaction were not rising yet the prices were rising absurdly > I told myself: “this is not natural > this has to be a Bankster PUMP…” I felt that in the pit of my stomach.
Up to here I’d guess most of you would more or less agree >>> but here is here the ‘conspiracy theory’ comes in:
- DIVIDE AND RULE; I guess most of you are familiar with this age-old tactic used by the Few to control the Many. This is what the Banksters have succeed in doing with BTC, and this is how they did it…
In Early 2017 the Banksters noticed (to their dismay) a very Bullish rise in interest in BTC which was occurring organically. So they came up with a plan to Divide and Rule, and destroy Bitcoin.
They knew that if BTC’s popularity would continue to rise at natural/organic rates then BTC would find ways to scale and accommodate the influx… but they also knew that if BTC and the crypto system would experience a MASSIVE and SUDDEN influx it would cause it to shake in it’s foundations.
So what I believe happened was this:
The Banksters infiltrated BTC leadership with people who would be adamantly opposed to scaling solutions such as increased block size. These Bankster agents put up such a stone wall that out of shear frustration other key members of BTC leadership were left with no other option than to HARD FORK (this was the “divide” part of the plan > and it worked… it especially worked well when followed with a massive hate campaign against the likes of R.Ver which has currently divided BTC into 2 factions that absolutely and irredeemable HATE eachother) >>> divide & rule - classic case!
So now we are at Aug. 2017 just after the hard fork, this is when the first UNNATURAL BTC pump happened, up to $4000… the rest, we all know >>> up and up to $20000 > ridiculous. The Banksters pumped it all up to those absurd highs and of course the general public all FOMOed their way in - everyone was happy because everyone was making tons of money (on paper) and therefore we all forgave the extremely high BTC fees, stupidly long transaction times, brutally inconvenient headaches dealing with the exchanges etc etc etc… we didn’t care about that cuz the market was BOOMING beyond recognition!
The the result was:
- get the general public focused on BTC
- totally ruin BTC’s functionality by overloading it
…then all that was left to do was to CRASH the market which was easily accomplished by simply and suddenly PULLING OUT all the money they had suddenly injected into it to pump it. Boom in late Dec. BTC crashed and has obviously continued to crash since, and is likely to crash down much further in the following months. This Crash has effectively burned all those general public new-comers who will now perhaps never again trust crypto.
And what are we left with now?
We have a Bitcoin Cash which perhaps more closely resembles what the original BTC would have looked like had it not been infiltrated (???), and we have BTC CORE which is now considered totally useless except for as use as a 'store of value" (digital gold). And more importantly, what we have is an extremely hateful divide in the BTC community - a divide which will never be repaired or reconciled.
In my opinion this is what the Banksters have done and they have succeeded in MASSIVELY damaging BTC - - -
Next let’s see what they will do with Etherium once it takes over.
