A multi-blockchain world…

October 27, 2035, Gustave Eiffel High School in Bordeaux, 11:30 a.m.

Tom Akker spins his pen between his fingers for the 1,000th time in at least an hour. This philosophy course is to die for. He took his Blockphone out of his pocket and scanned the news for a few minutes on Googleth, the old search engine the organization had recently purchased. Ethereum. Target? Application of complete anonymity of user data on the Internet.

Suddenly, a notification appears. It’s a tweet from the Journal du Coin.

« Solarnak blockchain hacknumber 100 since its inception.

It’s different this time, nearly two billion dollars have been lost, and the situation is critical…”

1 pm – Sitting in the cafeteria, Tom is lost in thought. Over the course of 5 years, blockchain and artificial intelligence technologies have exploded, turning the world into an interconnected and borrowed network. Google, Amazon, Facebook, Apple, Microsoft… GAFAMs are giants from an ancient era that are now outdated. The web3 web2 crashed.

A revolution started by Ethereum, the undisputed master of the new world, with the support of 2 layers like ribbed and cumulatives like Stark ware.

Avalanche, Elrond, and Polkadot have all managed to attract their own communities. The world of 2035 is multi-blockchain.

2035, an interconnected world in which all blockchains coexist

Tom’s cell phone vibrates. “Pirates hacked in turn?” Journal du Quin headlines.

“The money held by the hackers is gone…”

– Haha, that’s not a trifle, Clement slips it, sitting across from him.

– It is clear that the hacker being hacked is shameful…

17 h 40 – Tom climbed up Carpentier Street to the Porte de la Monnaie. It is immersed in the new trendy Play2Earn, BattleBot Royal. Then a notice caught his attention. Message on MetaMaskbook.

“Refund”

Surprised, Tom does not understand. He sees Tram D coming in, and will think about that later. Quickly, he started running to reach the podium in time.

18 h 15 – Arriving at his home in Puscat, he threw his bag at the bottom of the stairs and dashed into his room.

Hi Tom, did your day at school go well?

It’s Dianaartificial intelligence From the house that was just activated upon arrival. Tom doesn’t care, he rushes to his office. His computer DigitalVR scans his face and then launches. Tom logs in with his fingerprint on MetaMaskbook. 3717 unread messages. Far from the usual 25 notifications a day. He reads first.

Solarnak Money Back

“You are the thief, we have you …”

“You can’t hide”

Tom sweats profusely.

“But what’s going on?” He gets angry with panic.

Then he discovers his wallet amount Metamsk.

1956047283 US dollars.

… about to break through?

Tom steps back. Lying on the floor, he tries to slow his breathing. His heart beats hard against his chest.

– Don’t panic, MetaMaskbook is a pseudonym, he’s trying to reassure himself. Nobody can know who I am or where I live. Well, I guess… but why the hell did he get that money? Contrasting thoughts wrestle in it. Dreams of wealth, panic and guilt…

Tom sees an astronomical amount on his metamask and realizes that thanks to this hack, he has suddenly become a billionaire by mistake.
Tom is stunned by his discovery. Become a billionaire!

20 o 10

“Tom, sit down!” Call his mother.

Tom joins the kitchen and rests in silence, listening with one ear to the TV news.

– while a main hack Just happened on the Solarnak Blockchain, we learn sarcastically that hackers lost the stolen funds… According to experts, this is a stupid typo. Wanting to redirect the money to their MetaMaskbook “Atom”, they have already transferred it to their “ATom” account. An unfortunate and ridiculous mistake. The question remains… Who is this mysterious atom?

20 h 20 – Tom barely swallows his mother’s delicious fries. Does he tell his parents? Suddenly, a voice on the TV caught his attention.

– …Freddy Banksman, in front of Carol Lanos’ microphone, our reporter on site in front of the Solarnac Building.

– Here’s their big boss talking! Who doesn’t leave his office… is surprised by Tom’s father.

– … we ask the person hiding under the nickname “Atom” to send the money to Solarnak as soon as possible, otherwise the entire global network will collapse… This is not a request to be taken lightly, we are really on the edge of a cliff.

Could Ethereum be affected? asks Carol. Is our network too fragile?

Unfortunately, this is the stark reality. Ethereum, Avalanche, Elrond…this hack was never possible and until now…our bonding has been really addictive. Depend on the trust of our users in the network.

Carol raises an eyebrow. Freddy resumes his explanation.

Take, for example, the DansmaZone delivery app that has been making headlines lately. For the first time in 5 years, they failed to deliver their customers in less than an hour. Trust destroyed. Purely and simply. Their competitor DelivreTout soared while theirs crashed to the ground. Here, of course, it is not the stock market price but the system upon which our society is based.

“So if the money is not returned to you, our entire system could collapse tomorrow?”

In a world that has become as complex as ours, the slightest grain of sand in gears can stop a machine. Today, this journey is not a grain of sand, it is a pebble.

Because of this theft, the entire system could collapse.
Is the system ready to collapse if Tom doesn’t return the money?

22h35 – Tom thinks he’s lying in bed. His parents had already told him that they would not be able to pay for his studies, which had become too expensive.

Rent a small apartment for 2500 e-USD per month and kill themselves at work 10 hours a day. This money can change everything…

23h53 – Impossible to sleep. Tom restarts his computer and opens his MetaMaskbook wallet. Solarnak writes and clicks Submit. The screed evaporates on his shoulders. The system may collapse soon, but there is no doubt that he is responsible for it.

23h59 – Tom falls asleep in a second.

On his desk, his laptop screen suddenly lights up. New tweet from Journal du Coin ‘Ethereum Suspected of being hacked turn ‘

“The global monetary system is on the verge of collapse…”

We have seen that with the various bridging hacks that have taken place this year, interconnecting various blockchains is a risky process. Although it’s likely to be a trend in the next few years, accidents will definitely happen along the way. Thus, the security of our future networks is one of the Big future challengesIt becomes even more important if it is brought into democracy to accommodate our entire monetary system. Therefore, the risks for the future are enormous and certainly not to be taken lightly.
