A Story About the Future of Bitcoin by ChatGPT4. (Based)
I figured I would prompt ChatGPT4 to write a story about the effects of the recent proposal by the US Gov. to implement a 30% tax on crypto/Bitcoin mining. Here's the result-
Title: The Exodus of Innovation
In 2024, the world was shaken to its core as it faced one of the most devastating financial and banking crises in history. The global economy teetered on the brink of collapse, and the United States found itself grappling with instability and uncertainty.
As the dust began to settle in 2025, the U.S. government, corrupted and influenced by the old financial industry responsible for the crisis, turned its attention to the burgeoning cryptocurrency industry. Desperate to maintain the status quo and suppress any potential threats, the government announced a crippling 30% tax on crypto and Bitcoin mining starting in 2026. The decision sparked outrage and concern among the cryptocurrency community, who argued that the tax would stifle innovation and drive mining operations out of the country.
As the tax deadline loomed, many Bitcoin miners and crypto enthusiasts relocated their operations to more welcoming nations with lenient tax regulations. Despite growing opposition, the U.S. government remained obstinate in its decision, hoping to exert control over the industry and appease the old financial powers.
In 2026, the tax took effect, and the American cryptocurrency landscape began to wither. Small-scale miners shuttered their operations, leaving only a few major players standing. The industry was under siege, and the future of innovation seemed bleak.
Meanwhile, as the global economy struggled to recover, the demand for decentralized currencies like Bitcoin grew stronger. People began to distrust traditional financial institutions and sought alternative investment options. The price of Bitcoin began to rise, but the United States, with its ever-increasing hostility toward cryptocurrencies, was unable to reap the benefits.
With the U.S. government unwilling to embrace the potential of cryptocurrencies, innovation and investment poured into countries that had welcomed the crypto community with open arms. By 2028, these nations had become the epicenters of cutting-edge research and development in blockchain technology, leaving the United States lagging behind.
As the price of Bitcoin continued to soar, reaching $500,000 in 2029, the U.S. government stubbornly clung to its hostile stance. The 30% tax had failed to produce substantial revenues, as most mining operations had fled the country. The government's corrupt alliance with the old financial industry had blinded them to the possibilities of a new economic future.
By 2030, Bitcoin reached the astonishing price of $1,000,000. The United States, however, had been left behind, as its increasingly incompetent administration and unwillingness to adapt had cost it the opportunity to partake in the cryptocurrency boom. In contrast, nations that had embraced the crypto revolution flourished, becoming leaders in innovation and prosperity.
In the end, the U.S. government's shortsightedness and allegiance to the old financial industry had devastating consequences. The country that had once been a beacon of innovation and progress had lost its way, and the world marched on without it, embracing a new era of financial freedom powered by cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology.
