What will our world be like in 2035? – Our favorite cryptos will they have disappeared or will they be more than ever at the heart of our lives? Will the Bitcoin blockchain have changed the face of the world? We had fun, through little stories, imagining our world in the not so distant future. The story that follows is fictionalized, imaginary, without any pretension to guess the future. Have fun with us and dive into our new summer format. Embark in the DeLorean JDC, direction 2035!
NFT soon at the heart of society?
Ronald appears in the living room, his smartphone in his hand.
– Mom, I have the baccalaureate! Look at my wallet, I received the Soulbound Token (SBT) High School. Mention Bien.
Cindy, on the phone with Sophie, turns off the loudspeaker.
– Wait sis, I’ll call you back, Ronald has just had his baccalaureate!
Sophie hangs up on entering the bakery. Raining cats and dogs. She closes her umbrella and joins the queue.
– Hello Lisa, I’m picking up my order.
— 75 e-euros please. Is it Gaspard’s birthday? asks the baker, wrapping the cake.
– No, Luis. My husband, Hector took him and his brother to the Digital Museum.
Hector tries somehow to keep an eye on his two little monsters. Excited, they run between 3D representations of these works of digital art called NFT. The collections of pascal boyart and Beeple gathered in La Rochelle for the occasion.
Hector is stopped by a panicking museum agent, running towards him.
“Sir, have you seen a hooded individual?” Madame Michu has just had her wallet stolen.
Hector shakes his head no, surprised. How can people still be without a digital wallet in 2035? Driver’s license, gray card, vital card… Everything is digitized as SBT today. Difficult to be stolen in the street a virtual passport, you will agree?
Madame Michu’s wallet is already far away. Quai Duperré to be exact. In the hands of the hooded thief who unceremoniously jostles Gérald as he prepares to enter his bank, the NBB Bank. Gégé rails against this coarse individual but, being in a hurry and soaked by the rain, he pushes the door of the building then goes with a quick step towards the reception.
– Hello, I have an appointment with Mr. Flouze, please.
For 5 years, with his wife, they have accumulated trust points, awarded by his bank. Stored on his SBT, warm in his wallet. Today is the big day. His points will allow him to obtain a loan for their house. Soon owners, the dream!
Franck Flouze hangs up with his wife, Estelle. For 10 minutes, she has been complaining about the withdrawal of the SBT Netflix of their common wallet. Signifying the end of their subscription. And for his wife, the impossibility of finishing season 17 of Stranger Things. A disaster worse than the apocalypse to believe his words. But he has an appointment with a client, the SBT Netflix renewal can wait for tonight, damn it.
– Hello Gerald, what can I do for you? he asks his client with a hint of annoyance.
Estelle turns off the TV and gets up, waking up her two cats, Edgar and Felix, curled up next to her. With her best friend Cindy, they go to see their favorite artist, DJ Ridoo, mix. He performs at Sandbox Stadium for a virtual concert of anthology. So she puts on her Holograff helmet, heading for the metaverse.
DJ Ridoo, warm in his soundproof studio, checks his turntables. His music will be broadcast in a virtual world but his live performance will be very real. As concrete as the 200,000 spectators who are waiting for him to enjoy his music. bad luck, the P2E Cup Dual Combat is held at the same time, reducing its potential audience. Whatever, the occasion is unique. The Ushuaïa of Ibiza but virtual.
BattleBot Cup, Dual Combat, qualifying rounds, 7:30 p.m.
Ronald, at the controls of his NFT TheEverai, struggles with a Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) over-armed and recalcitrant. Sam, his partner, has just exploded into a thousand pieces due to the bomb from a Space Ape of Cantina Royale. His Meebits is offside. Eliminated, Sam counts on Ronald to win the victory, synonymous with access to the second round. He believes in their lucky stars.
“Sam, get to the table!” calls his mother, Lisa. Your brother just got home.
– He is mixing, you know.
– Hey, you bought a new wallet? Sam asks passing his twin brother, Charly, on the stairs.
This one doesn’t answer. He goes to his room, leaving a trail of water droplets behind him, and closes the door. He empties the wallet of its contents. Jackpot! A €10 note. A real collector’s item, a relic of the old world almost impossible to find now. He will be able to pay Mask, the hacker Harry mentioned. He knows how to add fake SBTs to any wallet. A pale copy, certainly, but enough to deceive his parents for a while. And, he must at all costs make them believe that he has had his baccalaureate, at least until the holidays planned with his friends at the end of July.
Harry hears his father, Gerald, come in.
– What a dog weather, really! Cindy, we have the loan from the bank, he says to his wife. All those good points accumulated, it was worth it, right?
Outside, the rain intensifies.
Gaming, art, metaverse, clubs, brands… But also diplomas, certificates, identity papers, cinema tickets, concerts… Genuine springboard to our future identities in a digitalized world, NFTs and more particularly Soulbound Tokens (SBT) could well revolutionize our lifestyles in a few years. What would be the applications? Hasheur also gives some hints in his latest video. Will NFTs soon populate our everyday lives?
