CRYPTO WARS EP8 S1: BEYOND THE GREAT ELECTRONIC WALL…
In the previous episode (Episode V), we explained that the ‘Bitcoin crypto asset’ was an application (or ‘App’) built from a core blockchain algorithm; This Blockchain ‘protocol’, was made by a mysterious japanese computer scientist, the ‘Kool Herc’ of Bitcoin, and ex-member of the ‘1990’s cypherpunk movement of the early internet days’ : Satoshi Nakamoto San’
Satoshi’s origin story establishes the strength of the Bitcoin community not only in Japan, but also in China and South-Korea, the other ‘Big three Tiger Economies’ of South-East Asia; We are visiting those tigers with the #DarkCryptoJeDi who gathers spikes in Social Media, via a dedicated ‘Storytelling Bot’.
A ‘Bot’ is an online robot. A robot programmed to achieve a dedicated task: A Social media bot, will help gather trending traffic and content on the internet.
The bot, would then criss-cross reference and verify the information, using keywords. The bot, then finally builds the narrative of the first conflictual decade in the Crypto Ecosystem (2009-19), that was. The bot explores and dissects the multiple ‘Crypto verses’
1. THE GREAT ELECTRONIC FIREWALL??
Any look at Bitcoin and cryptonomics in China will have to be done, based on two notions:
A. There are ‘several Chinas’: Continental China (PRC: People Republic of China – Capital: Beijing), Hong-Kong (SAR: Special Administrative Region – Capital: Hong-Kong), Macao (SAR: Special Administrative Region – Cap: Macao), Taiwan (ROC: Republic Of China – Cap: Taipeh ) – and then you will have to delve into the many nations and cultures, within China (From Buddhist, to Tibetains, to muslims, Mongols, etc..
1.The second notion is that of the GREAT ELECTRONIC WALL of CHINA awesomeness: Also known as the ‘Great Firewall of China’, it is an amazing system that couples state monitors and telecommunication companies into blocking series of keywords deemed as ‘ inappropriate’ from inside the country and overseas too!
-..How does it work?
“ The Great Electronic Firewall of China is an electronic shield, that protects the country’s online communication inside and with the outside world! “
– is it like an electronic and online version of the marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D ?

B. A little bit… But… First; A LITTLE HISTORY LESSON:
Once upon a time, China’s former leader, chairman Mao, theorized in 1958, the notion of the ‘Great Leap forward’ in social and economics terms. We will spare you the ups and downs of the Chinese revolution, and its complex approach to socialism mixed with free-market capitalism. Only China could have created such a model, and only China will tell us if indeed it fulfilled the original vision of its leader: It is a ‘Data-Fact’ that the ‘Great Leap Forward’ first theorized in 1958, ultimately landed China as the ‘World’s premier factory in the 21st century’. In the 1970’s Western nations, passed laws against computer crimes, whilst China had no such legislation until 1997: China’s National People’s Congress (NPC) passed CL97, a law created in order to criminalize ‘cyber crimes’.
As part of the Great Electronic Wall, in 2003, China started the Golden Shield Project with the hardware provided by U.S. companies, including Cisco Systems. It is a complex network of hardware and software processes enabling the blocking and banning of online offenders, whether they were operating from inside or outside China. The project was completed in 2006 and stand as one of the most impressive online electronic super-structure or architecture, ever built by men.
Unanswered question: Is it visible from the moon, too? :))
2. A STRONG CHINA: ON GENERAL PRINCIPLE?
⇒ In many ways it is an immense censorship system that controls most of online communications and digital conversations.
That is the flipside, the…‘1st order’, or ‘first world view’ on China.
On the positive side, China has been able to develop its own Facebook (Called ‘WeChat’), Youtube (Called Youku), Amazone (Called ‘Ali BaBA’), even its own Twitter (Called WeiBo) and also dominates the production of computer hardwares, as we know.
On the ‘sovereign’ side, China has replicated an electronic version of what the first imperial dynasty – Qin Shi Huang – of China, accomplished in 220 BC, when building the first part of the great wall of China!
3. THE ‘GHOSTS’ OF ORDOS
Having said all of that, most early crypto-observers, would anticipate that China’s entry into the crypto-world, could be a game-changer. In fact, its impact could have been compared with:
“ Bitcoin came, saw and conquer China, boosted by the ‘Fire and fury’ of an emerging industrial dragon”
⇒ Delving deep into China, we decided to Look for the most impressive way to impact your vision of the Chinese Crypto-Dragon: #TheDarKCryptoJeDi landed in the mysterious city of Ordos. The desert-city of Ordos, in inner Mongolia, where we found again Oleg Poshner who’s had many fortunes and misfortunes on the Chinese mainland, since his first trip there, in 2016…
Oleg has set up and lost, an entire virtual bitcoin exchange that was made to buy and trade bitcoins with altcoins and asian FIAT currencies, too. For Oleg, coming to Ordos had one aim: Getting closer to its ‘source material’
=> Mostly, acquiring freshly ‘mined’ Bitcoins, from the largest mining operation in the world, here in Ordos.
Yes, Ordos is in Mongolia and was one of the many crypto financial centers, scattered around the globe: Ordos was one of China’s many ‘Ghost-City’, from a previous ‘Coal Rush’ that first attracted a rush in housing developments, that turned out to be all mostly abandoned by workers, when the price of coal, collapsed! …
This was ‘Old-School’ underground mining…’coal-mining’ that is…
21st century mining involved computer, first. And china had now, that notion deeply hard-coded into its ‘national’ crypto hard-drive….
We will see exactly why….
