-A kid gets kidnapped, Elizabeth Smart style. They are taken to a far away place with no money and they manage to escape and buy a bus ticket home from their brain wallet.
- A bitcoin millionaire dies and leaves his inheritance to shared secrets. His heirs need to hunt down the secrets by clues and combine the secrets in order to cryptographically recover the digital fortune. Some emphasis on a death switch type service would be interesting. Show him "checking in once or twice, and then an email going out when he doesn't respond after his death.
- Ransom paid in Bitcoin?
- Dead drops?
- SkyNet created Bitcoin to fund it's war operations in the past when terminator goes back to kill conner? lol
Mine is a political triller, viewed and played by stupid politicians (sorry for the redundancy). They go from bitcoin-enemy to bitcoin-supporters.
Day 1: A small bank in Ireland collapses. This rapidly creates bank runs across Europe. Two larger banks collapse. The crisis then accelerates. Bank risk becomes enormous. Sovereign risk follows along.
Day 2: Politicians make promises that everything will be sorted out and schedule meetings and photo-ops. Politicians never seem (in the movie/documentary) to care about people, but only on how they looked on TV.
They are completely clueless about the extent of what's going on (think Bernanke here).
Day 3: the price of Gold and other PMs goes to the stratosphere. There are no sellers at any price now. JP Morgan fails due to its silver position. Now the financial crisis is unstoppable--JP Morgan will not pay for any of its derivative positions.
Day 4: Politicians start to understand the enormity of what the derivatives collapse looks like. And they see that they are simply unable to print their way out now. Banks are closing every day. People are destroying ATMs, supermarkets are not opening dus to riots, COMEX has defaulted on its "fractional reserve gold banking"; we are now in a different world, in which paper promises have become meaningless.
Please take 5 minutes of your life to fully appreciate this: http://demonocracy.info/infographics/usa/derivatives/bank_exposure.html
Day 5: This is the last day of the über-banks. One by one, they too make their promises void, due to JP Morgan's fall. Though not realized at the time, this is the last day of wall street. Things are going downhill from here.
Day 10: The global supply chains start to stop. Only gold is accepted; physical gold. But the delivery of physical gold is always troublesome, given the enormity of weapons and military involved. Dictatorships rise in Argentina, Venezuela, Portugal, Greece. Martial law is applied everywhere except Canada, the Nordic countries and Switzerland (at least for the time being).
Bank letters of credit are meaningless.
Day 11: In one of the gold delivery incidents, a russian fighter jet that carried the physical metal is found destroyed. In other incidents in Latin America, the jets simply took off to other routes and the gold was robbed. Some Arab nations try to bring down planes of enemies (Iran, Israel) in a vain attempt to get gold.
Day 12: With extreme uncertainty concerning payment in supply chains, Japan faces an enormous food security crisis. Satoshi Nakamoto reappears in the forums. A paper is being circulated and drafted.
Day 13: Politicians publicly deride the (leaked) paper, which argues for the use of bitcoin in global transactions, and say they are developing their alternative, "trustworthy" clearinghouses. Journalists now place hard questions to politicians, and consider the proposal's merits.
Day 14: The food crisis in Japan sees the first deaths due to starvation. The world has been transformed in two weeks. There are riots everywhere; people simply couldn't expect (or understand) the fragility in which the entire banking (and now, economic) system was operating. Nobody trusts any promise, and the gold delivery methods continue to be as clumsy as government.
Day 17: Google, Wikipedia, Yahoo, and other leading web companies put the paper on their front page with "no deadline for its removal". The paper describes how bitcoin could work as the global clearinghouse. Satoshi promises to donate 1000 btc to each poor nation, which accept it immediately. Japan receives some foreign aid food donations, and conducts the first bitcoin transactions with Chile, Brazil, and Singapore.
and so on...
in the end, the world's supply chains slowly crawl back into existence. All major silicon valley companies are preparing huge mining operations in sustainable energy regions.
And Satoshi disappears, once again.
