Anyone know Star Trek? I know in that story they did not have a monetary system any more.
However some alien civilizations did.

What do you think would happen if those people used Bitcoin?

How would things play out if Starfleet used Bitcoin?

Could they afford to build the Enterprise?

Thoughts?

This is probably because the utopian creator, Gene Roddenberry, wasn't alive anymore by the time they brought DS9 (stealing B5 concepts) and they added gold pressed latinum and old fashioned capitalism (Ferengi).

The original concept was that, because of the abundance of energy, and things like replicators, there was no need for money anymore. Just go to the replicator and make it do whatever you ever needed for free, a socialist dream.

And how exactly a money less society works? I guess this is what he tried to portrait. He was alive and even made a cameo in the first episode of TNG, and you can see during this show the concept still holds true, only later in the 90ies with 2~3 "Trek" shows running in parallel, did things got fuzzy.

I'm not even going to touch in the reboots and remakes of late.

In short, the answer is: No. But real life William Shatner, may do Cheesy

Dude, I have news for you, Star Trek isn’t real Grin
Seriously though, if they used bitcoin as their currency in the films then presumably as Star Trek is popular then more normies would have bought bitcoin & the price would be higher Smiley

Would they use a ship to transport a block though too if it was used interplanitarily and intergalaxariously?

The speed of light takes 9-18 minutes (depending on orbit) to get here from Mars. Warp speed is 3x10^8 meaning at 7 warp, they'd be travelling faster than the signal?


The original concept was that, because of the abundance of energy, and things like replicators, there was no need for money anymore. Just go to the replicator and make it do whatever you ever needed for free, a socialist dream.


Their teleportation was still kinda bad though, they probably wouldn't have needed the ship if they had enough range just to beem people to earth when then was a problem with a planet...

It's pretty good though.

Do you know that in the original star trek in the 70s they used wireless communicators that had a flap? about 30 years later phones based on that design like Motorola Razr became very popular and there are new models coming up till this day.

I remember that the most popular curency was gold plated latinum but there were some rare substances out there that served the purpose of money like dilithium used by warp cores to generate power.

Someone on the rebound might leave their Vulcan ex in teleport limbo on a double spend.

Star Trek has depcited human civilization way advance than the current era and thus they are upgraded to Tier 1 civilization where Tier 0 civilization is highly intelligent one.

The question is what for such intelligent civilization would want to use the bitcoin currency ? All they would do is use the blockchain and tech that is also out dated for them and may not even cop up the computing power that they are using.

The more intelligent civilization is the more they will see these things as useless.
