When I got myself a bit acquainted with the crypto world, and I took my first little steps in understanding crypto trading, I was confronted - almost immediately - with some new language. Words like HODL, MOON and MOONING was used a lot of times by crypto minded people, traders and investors! Although my association with MOONING was something else (hanging out of the window showing your buttocks), I quickly learned this word/verb had a total different meaning in crypto space. "Funny, why not Mars", I thought, "that is much further away then the moon?". But I suppose MARSING doesn't sound so good as MOONING.
Thinking about crypto's TO THE MOON and MOONING, I started to wonder if some science was hidden in this that can explain why TO THE MOON and MOONING are indeed the right words to link to the effect of crypto's increasing in value, a lot.
I did a very interesting discovery that I try and explain to you.
Using a couple basic scientific principles, I show you when we talk about MOONING and TO THE MOON, this will in fact have the opposite effect, meaning crypto's will decrease in value and maybe even trend to zero!
UNCOVERED through SCIENCE
The moon - like the earth - has a mass and we all learned in school that mass results in a gravitational force. This gravitational force is what holds us and everything on our planet, on the earth. It keeps us more or less stable positioned.
Also cryptocurrencies are more or less stable, maybe a little bit less stable then we are, but still, they are kinda stable. When we bring cryptos in relation to the moon, with the moon having a gravitational field and therefore will pull the cryptos to the moon, something else must exist to make sure the cryptos are kinda stable and not falling all the way to the moon. Therefore we introduce the anti-moon, in analogy with the scientific theory of the existence of matter and anti-matter. We can visualise this in the image below with STEEM as the crypto.
With the anti-moon in the equation, also having a gravitational field, STEEM will be kinda stable. Since the moon is defined as "a crypto gaining a super high value" (defined by RICH in the image above), the anti-moon must than be defined as a crypto will have "a real low value", maybe even zero (defined by BROKE in the image above).
When we now move STEEM to the moon, look what happens in the image below.
The moon is gone. As if STEEM swallowed the moon!
When the moon is gone, also the gravitational field of the moon must be gone. The only gravitational field left, is the one of the anti-moon. This will result in STEEM falling all the way to the anti-moon which we earlier defined as "BROKE". I made this visual in the image below.
Now the anti-moon is gone as well, there is no gravitational field left anymore, meaning STEEM can flow in any direction it wants. But, due to the absence of any force that can pull STEEM, STEEM will stay stable where it is, meaning we will have a currency without value.
