Nostradamus's predictions regarding Cryptocurrency?!?

in #cryptocurrency2 years ago (edited)

A brief introduction on Nostradamus: Michel de Nostredame, usually Latinised as Nostradamus, was a French physician and reputed seer who published collections of prophecies that have since become widely famous. He is best known for his book "Les Propheties", the first edition of which appeared in 1555. Since the publication of this book, which has rarely been out of print since his death, Nostradamus has attracted a following that, along with much of the popular press, credits him with predicting many major world events in his cryptic style of writing; done so to protect him from the church. (Some famous prediction--> http://howtolucid.com/nostradamus-predictions/)


"Alas, how we will see a great nation sorely troubled and the holy law in utter ruin. Christianity (governed) throughout by other laws, when a new source of gold and silver is discovered.

Through lightning in the arch gold and silver melted, Of two captives one will eat the other: The greatest one of the city stretched out, When submerged the fleet will swim.

They will prepare idols of Kings and Princes, Soothsayers and empty prophets elevated: Horn, victim of gold, and azure, dazzling, The soothsayers will be interpreted.

A new sect of Philosophers Despising death, gold, honors and riches Will not be bordering upon the German mountains: To follow them they will have power and crowds.

The good old man buried quite alive, Near the great river through false suspicion: The new old man ennobled by riches, Captured on the road all his gold for ransom.

Born in the shadows and during a dark day, He will be sovereign in realm and goodness: He will cause his blood to rise again in the ancient urn, Renewing the age of gold for that of brass.

Those who were in the realm for knowledge Will become impoverished at the change of King: Some exiled without support, having no gold, The lettered and letters will not be at a high premium.

In the sacred temples scandals will be perpetrated, They will be reckoned as honors and commendations: Of one of whom they engrave medals of silver and of gold, The end will be in very strange torments.

The great Pontiff of the party of Mars Will subjugate the confines of the Danube: The cross to pursue, through sword hook or crook, Captives, gold, jewels more than one hundred thousand rubies.

The great credit of gold and abundance of silver will cause honor to be blinded by lust; the offense of the adulterer will become known, which will occur to his great dishonour.

The copies of gold and silver inflated, which after the theft were thrown into the lake, at the discovery that all is exhausted and dissipated by the debt. All scrips and bonds will be wiped out.

At the fourth pillar which they dedicate to Saturn split by earthquake and by flood; under Saturn's building an urn is found gold carried off by Caepio and then restored."


My interpretation of these quatrains:
"Alas, how we will see a great nation sorely troubled and the holy law in utter ruin. Christianity (governed) throughout by other laws, when a new source of gold and silver is discovered. -["a new source of silver and gold that will cause conflict with the lands laws"; Cryptocurrency not only threatens financial markets in many countries but also legal systems as its not classified as a specific type of asset as of yet and tax laws are very primitive if at all existent regarding Cryptocurrency, they also allow money to be moved around without having to gain permission from a reserve bank thus this quatrain I find very fascinating & congruent]

"Through lightning in the arch gold and silver melted" [Lighting through an arch of silver and gold melted makes me think of circuit boards as these metals are both conductors, gold being the best conductor for circuit boards], "Of two captives one will eat the other: The greatest one of the city stretched out, When submerged the fleet will swim". [Perhaps ""the stretched out city" means the world wide web and when submerged the "fleet" will swim refers to Seacom cables]

They will prepare idols of Kings and Princes, Soothsayers and empty prophets elevated: Horn, victim of gold, and azure, dazzling, The soothsayers will be interpreted. [yes we have many statues of kings and Princes and we love to analyse prophecy in our society, not sure what he was trying to convey here; perhaps this is a reference to our "pop idols" being soothsayers as we elevate them on social media]

A new sect of Philosophers Despising death, gold, honors and riches Will not be bordering upon the German mountains: To follow them they will have power and crowds. [ I like this, most individuals of the new generation have a "Zietgiest" manner of seeing the world, where we see how capitalism and overt materialistic drive is harming the planet as there is nothing economical regarding our economies; if analysed form a resource based perspective, German mountains could be a reference to the banking history and core roots of banking cartels stemming form Germany]

"The good old man buried quite alive, Near the great river through false suspicion: The new old man ennobled by riches, Captured on the road all his gold for ransom". {One new generation capturing the old "good" generations wealth on the road towardds progress perhaps}

Born in the shadows and during a dark day, He will be sovereign in realm and goodness: He will cause his blood to rise again in the ancient urn, Renewing the age of gold for that of brass. [I can only assume that this is the age Brass/Copper has more value than gold as the higher a PC's processing power/hash-rate the more wealth, copper circuitry can generate for an individual, it really is an age we live in where copper can generate more value than gold]

Those who were in the realm for knowledge Will become impoverished at the change of King: Some exiled without support, having no gold, The lettered and letters will not be at a high premium. [Realm for knowledge being the "boys club" we call the financial markets, if you are well studied in finance its not hard to make money in this artificial construct we have created with jargon and complexity to keep the uneducated/those "lacking knowledge" out. Lettered and letters having no high premium, could this refer to our paper money? Is this a reference to our Fiat currencies losing value or does it refer to government bonds? ]

In the sacred temples scandals will be perpetrated, They will be reckoned as honors and commendations: Of one of whom they engrave medals of silver and of gold, The end will be in very strange torments. [I can only assume sacred temples are government buildings such as the Whitehouse, Pentagon,wallstreet buildings, etc, many decorated individuals partake in dodgy dealings in these spaces]

The great Pontiff of the party of Mars Will subjugate the confines of the Danube: The cross to pursue, through sword hook or crook, Captives, gold, jewels more than one hundred thousand rubies.

The great credit of gold and abundance of silver will cause honor to be blinded by lust; the offense of the adulterer will become known, which will occur to his great dishonor. [We have already seen financial institutions breaking the covenants regulating fractional reserve banking practices that has left many feeling disgruntled as lust or greed of banksters resulted in no honoring of these set legal covenants]

The copies of gold and silver inflated, which after the theft were thrown into the lake, at the discovery that all is exhausted and dissipated by the debt. All scrips and bonds will be wiped out. [This could be a reference to fractional reserve banking causing a financial collapse which will make a certain countries government bonds worthless]

At the fourth pillar which they dedicate to Saturn split by earthquake and by flood; under Saturn's building an urn is found gold carried off by Caepio and then restored." [My Greek mythology is not that refined Id rather not try and make heads or tails of this line, I would however love to hear your interpretations of all this below if you know some Greek mythology]

Id really like to hear your interpretations and views in the comments below. Nostradamus was a very cryptic writer and this is really just an exercise for the sake of fun and speculation.

Nostradamus did not predict Bitconnect, Nostradamus Sucks :)
